resurrection...part 2

So this is a diorama book report I did at about age 11 or 12 from a shoe box. I made the outside look like a book...

Then you open it up and it looks like this...

The dots on the black construction paper in the background are dots of glow-in-the-dark puffy/t-shirt paint! The bodies are made out of wire. I actually used small pieces of cloth for the clothing of Rapunzel and the prince and for their hands and hair I used embroidery string. The prince has magnets as shoes that attach to 2 more magnets on the floor of the box. I did that to help the prince stay in place and stand up.

This is the starting position, where Rapunzel lets her hair down and her head turned facing inside the tower...

...then to pull the prince up, you pull on this string in the back of the box...

...the prince is lifted up and you can also see Rapunzel's face. =)

Below are some posters I did in 5th, 6th, and 7th (something like that) grades when I ran for student body office. Not sure which poster was for which grade.

This was another book report I did. I think this was age 11 or 12. It's my interpreted replica of the cover of the book. I did a replica of Roald Dahl's George's Marvelous Medicine front book cover as a book report, but I don't remember what grade. Might have been 4th grade. I thought I kept it, but I couldn't find it.

This was one of my ceramic projects in high school. This was for the purposes of learning the coiling technique. My mom uses it as a paper clip holder!

I also decided to dig up my old organizer I used to use in high school! Check out all the OG stickers!!! I have decided to use it again! ;)

This is the cover.

On the left are 2 scratch n' sniff stickers. They totally don't smell anymore.

to be continued...

the beginning signs of an artist

So I mentioned that I was going to my parents' to look for a bunch of stuff I did when I was younger, and one of them was this drawing I did in pre-school. Here it is!

Leave a comment about what you think it looks like. First person who guesses right gets a prize from me! ;) ***Hint***I was born in '81 and I did this at about age 2 or 3.

Okay....so here's the answer!

resurrection...part 1

This was a charcoal piece of a 3-piece series that I did in '99 for my Intro to Drawing final project.

This was a Halloween costume I made all from felt back in '04. I did this to represent "BEEGEES" aka the billing department at work.
