I'm a little stressed out here recently due to the semester starting, scheduling conflicts, paint charging two different shows at once, playing music that is just a little outside my comfort zone AND taking a drawing class. However, enough whining out of me. I am excited about the drawing class. Now perhaps I'll learn how to do things properly!

To our left is an older piece that is a multimedia collage poster of DOOOOOM!!! The background is a mixture of watercolor paper, tulle, tissue paper, markers, watercolors, pen, and colored pencil. The text and the, oh so cute, little penguins were then layered over it in Photoshop!!

My favorite part of this piece is the mixture in textures. I always find it relaxing to go back and look at old pieces and remember what I really enjoyed about creating them. It helps calm me down.

I'm really enjoying getting into collage work, and multimedia pieces. Right now I'm reading several different books on the subject and am finding millions of new projects to work on...now if I could only expand the hours of the day from twenty four to thirty-six. Then I might have time to get it all done! Off to class now! Ciao!
