Merry New Year everybody!! I know that this is terribly overdue, but here it goes…Christmas Letter 2011 🙂

I finally got to go to a Mutemath concert!! That was one of the things on my to-do list of life. The concert was at the Pourhouse in Raleigh on September 12, and it’s the best concert I’ve ever seen. SO! We took a bunch of pictures and got to be a part of the amazingness of standing in the front row…it felt grand 🙂
We had a project in digital imaging where we made something called a joiner. I made my first one based off of Devin and I…it was pictures that I took in his truck, which we call the Love Box.
I submitted that one as my draft, and then decided to make the next one using Mutemath concert photos…and it turned out beautifully! It’s really funny, because now I think in joiners (we went to DC for fall break, and visited Frederick Douglass’ house–I took pictures of one of the rooms so that I can turn it into a joiner).
Overall, I think both turned out wonderfully…..and Mutemath’s new album, ODD SOUL is out now!
If you haven’t heard of them, then you’re missing out on amazingness. Interested in other songs? Check out Pins and Needles, Chaos, and Picture….They’re all wonderful! One day, I’m gonna walk down the aisle to a Mutemath song 🙂
hahaha more pictures from the concert after the concert soon…
I can honestly say that I’ve done a lot in these past few weeks! It seems that at times I lose my concept of time. Everything kind of justrunstogether…. studiostudiostudio!
Here goes a peek at the fruits of my labor:
I made these for an exhibit at the Fishmarket Gallery…they were meant to be whimsical and happy 🙂
Something in my sketchbook…there’s a LOT more in there now! More pictures from that later…
First time using a tablet! I’ve gotten a LOT better since then..this is within the first few days of being on campus. It was an experiment 🙂

Went to Sparkcon with mommy! It was terribly cold, but we had fun and I enjoyed hanging out with her 🙂 She and I made this in square number 23. Sponsored by the City of Raleigh Arts Commission (CORAC)
Got to make a woodturned goblet! These are the tools
The piece of wood when I got it rounded out (It started out as a block of wood)
The finished product! I went for a bulbous shape…and it turned out wonderfully:)
And now a funny to finish this off. This is a close up of the initial design of one of the comics on my Definition of Design poster….it’s a humorous commentary on the idea that “everything is design”…..and everything is NOT design!
Alright, everybody! I promised myself I’d get this done tonight…so it’s 12:34 (haha) and I’m hardly awake, and dying to take a shower and get in bed. Thanks for looking, I know it’s been a while. Have love and hugs and happiness….
And I just realized that there’s one more picture that isn’t up here. So I’m about to add it in now…maybe it’s an even better ending note than the comic. It’s why I’m here.
Love you all…have joy and sunshine, and don’t be afraid to go out and make life amazing 🙂
It’s been quite some time since I last painted the band panels…but I just realized that this is year three! And I must say that this is a great year for band props. The theme is “latin dances,” and I just realized that I should have taken the picture from the other end…since the detail probably isn’t in the picture, there’s a lady on the end…a latin dancer! The matador is my favorite panel. When we brought the panels in, there was a frog on one! We named him Benny and plotted to keep him as a pet. But it was decided that he probably had family outside of the band room somewhere. Now I’m covered in paint, pet-frogless, and heading to the movies! Have a great night, everyone, and don’t forget to support the arts! Love and hugs 🙂
