Apathy and the Whales

I think if anyone ever read more than one entry in my journals, they'd realize that Titles are not usually related.
The same goes for this one. I just think Apathy is a cute name for a girl...who likes to live with a pod of whales....

Who am I? Well I don't know...

I do stuff.

I go to a certain University, and walk on giant streets of cloth.

I 'splore the trees.

I belong to a rad collective.

I'm the crazy old man who runs the goat circus down the road.

I turn into a fruit eating ferret by night.

This was a huge amount of time, that I'm not sure was spent efficiently....we'll see how it plays out. Who I am does not fit into pictures of my life. This is what I have learned.

Now go find those whales, Apathy.

When I was small

As an alternate project for Illustration, I made little card board cut outs of me and my housemates. With out any context, I am a peculiar girl.

Ah yes, the days when I was made of paper.

I am very excited that friends of mine are moving. I can mail them letters. I do like to send letters once in a while.
Also, I think probably in the new year, I would like to make a dream boat, like the ones ann wood makes. Her blog is awe inspiring:

Also, she has the name I was going to use as a pen name, because it is my middle name and first part of my last.

Lots of love,

ps. sorry the images are tiny.

Catfish Cemetary

School is crazier than a cat that only eats jello. More crazy than that. Crazy busy.
I have however been producing some neato things with this crazy-business.

I'm taking a print media class called book media where we learn the development of tradition and non traditional bound and 3D folded books. It is an excellent class. It's a combination of art and craft at just the right amount of each.

So I have pictures to show you.

So the concept of this project is about space relating to the reader. It can be looked upon from the front to get a layered distant effect, or unfolded from the side, to show distance, and wide open spaces. And everything is underlined. Not so sure why.

The whole thing is made of Canson C-Cream drawing paper. It's kind of like a thin bristol. It was cut with a exacto with a pointed tip, and i did not count the hours.

In the first picture you can see the case that is fits in. If you look reaaaaally carrefully, you can see the small deer head that is hlding the case together. It is very faint because it is clear.
There are also little things hidden in some of the pages, like the antlers in the next image.

There are more pictures to show, but my images are processed by evil spirits of bad formatting, so I'll shoe them later.
