beucoup!

21 Nov

aaah it’s been forever! too many things going on.

what i wouldn’t give for a day off work, you know…

so i could like, fold laundry, and do homework.

and other things normal people get to do for a change.

a   n   y   w   a   y…

enough complaining, here’s some art!

figure study: pregnant model
intaglio: book project

this is a snippet of my edition for the project we are working on in my

printmaking class. somebody started the plate and printed

an edition of 30-some and then passed the plate to the second

person who changed the plate up a bit and printed an edition.

and so on until we are all done and we will

each bind a book of everybody’s changes, cool huh?

the process would have gone better i think had our press not broken halfway through…

alex, scott, and brady fixing the press

voluntary print labor for museum studies class!

dr. hannus asked kayla hathaway and i to design a poster for

the show our museum methods class curated. we decided to screenprint

them which was a lot of work, however, we got it done and we are

pretty happy with the results and they

are an edition of 165 which is pretty special.

if you see one about town you better nab it when the show is over because it is

valuable and be worth a lot of money when we are famous! hehe

printed ceramics

oh ps- i also play with clay. these are a few pieces that came out of

the salt kiln from my ceramics class!

i really enjoy working with clay, and am pretty happy i can

incorporate some printmaking ideas/techniques.

mini jones in venice

drawing for my class, supposed to be a memory.

i picked when my best friend mini and i were in venice.

i remember the train ride and how we stuck our heads out the window

of the night train and smoked cigarettes.

oofta, that was a lot!

i would probably rant some more, however

i have some nazi zombies (via call of duty) to kill.

happy (day after) halloween!

1 Nov

i hope you all had a fantastic halloween! i sure did!

spent friday carving pumpkins with my family,

and attended a lovely soirée on saturday night.

and of course by soiree i mean drunken over-crowded college

party. but it was great!

we’ll start with some art and some pictures and then a quick (picture-less) recipe!

drawing with the prompt “what if…”

pretty happy with the output, looks better in person

than from this photograph. charcoal, gesso, and black magic ink.

two harrison fords (han and indie) little fox and beetlejuice

happy halloween! ^.^

i made the ears myself out of fabric and lace, but i also

attached invisible string to the tips and strung it to my sleeves

so that they seemed to wiggle on their own.

alex (who was mark rothko) me, and our lovely host kayla (a gay superhero rainbowfish!)

now for the quick recipe!

no pictures, this ones easy.

you will need: spices, salt, paprika, etc… and pumpkin seeds (or squash!)

let the seeds dry and drizzle them with olive oil, spice them up to your taste preferences

and pop them in the oven at 400˚ for about 15 mins.

voila! delicious! i am eating some right now nom nom nom.

best,

sarah z ❤
