What 365 project?
What 365 project?
Guess who got the flu early this year!
That’s right, Liz did. At least I got it over with early (is that a Thing with the flu?). I slept a couple of days away, hence no post. But I did get things done in a few hours of consciousness and planned many more projects for the future!
First, the titular tulips (tee hee). I made forty or so tulips to put over Christmas lights, resulting in a variant of this lovely project. All I need is the lights. :D
I was in bed for four days with a virus so I didn’t get a ton of projects done, but I’m pretty happy with what I did turn out.
Kusudama is so much fun! I think I’m addicted. I made this flower ball with some comics from a thrift store.
There’s a good amount of variety in this week’s projects! I have so many different mediums to try on top of the work for my drawing and photography classes. I’m excited. :)
I’ll put everything under the cut to save everyone some scrolling on their dashboards.
I will upload my art and pictures from my trip as soon as I have the time. I will be leaving again in a couple days, this time to California.
But after my trip I am going to start anew. That way the project better encompass one school year and I can stop being hindered by my embarrassment. The cause of my uneasiness is hard to explain…
It’s like letting an email sit in your inbox for a week. After that responding will only draw attention to the fact that you ignored or forgot about the message and any excuses, fabricated or not, could be easily dismissed as merely a guise for your rudeness. So you just hope the indiscretion goes unnoticed, though attempts to start a new conversation weeks or months later may just remind your pen pal of the supposed snubbing.
“Gosh, hey, so, I know I took two months to respond but, uh, hi. I swear I didn’t ignore you out of malice. Eheh. Yeah.”
I don’t know what I’m talking about anymore. What I’m really trying to say here is that I want to be able to look back and think, “Golly, was I ever consistent!” instead of, “It certainty didn’t take long for me to start sucking.”
If you haven’t checked out Zen Pencils, do so now.
I’ve decided to make weekly blog posts. The ultimate goal is still to do something every day, but since the actual blogging part seems to be my major hang up I will just post my weekly work on Fridays or Saturdays. Tomorrow I will post what I’ve done since Wednesday.
I will be on vacation Monday through the 22nd, so many of my posts will most likely be travel journal entries and non-iPhone photographs if I can find the USB cord for my camera. Prepare yourself for gratuitous pictures of proper Tex-Mex… :)
When you start mumbling obscenities to your unfinished origami turtle, it’s time to stop for the night. I tried several different things but the only thing that turned out well was this relatively easy nested rose. I was instructed by this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yeU8Sn44sSg. She has several well-done instruction videos and a great blog, you should check it out if you’re interested in learning origami!
Hopefully I will have better luck tomorrow. :)
And that’s that! I’m still counting this as posting on Saturday even though it’s 4:30 AM. College kids can do that, right?
I took an unexpected hiatus. I worked consistently, cross my heart! I suddenly became tired of the internet and so avoided scanning and posting for a bit. I was rid of that strange affliction following a long weekend at the beach with my buds; in fact, I had a really inspiring conversation with my friend about goals and art and the future n’ stuff and so was PUMPED to get back into the swing of things…and then I got sick.
A pile of tissues and cough drop wrappers threatened to overcome my nightstand. Showering was an exhausting exercise. I accidentally spilled orange juice on my dog.
It was not a pretty sight.
But now I’m feeling much better! One giant post tomorrow and then it’s back to our regularly scheduled programming.
