I've had a package of Sculpey sitting in a drawer for probably almost a year. I've only used it once before to make a small object for a friends project. I decided to try it out again and was frustrated. No matter what I did to knead it and make it pliable it was still crumbly. Generally, I found the process frustrating. I've seen the stuff people make so maybe it was the kind I was using or maybe it does go bad. Don't know. Am going to go make something in mud instead.

I take notes for school on pads of 8 1/2" x 11" yellow lined paper. This is a typical example of my inclass notes. I've discovered I focus best on lectures when I'm drawing. I've gotten some great ideas from these half focused ramblings so now, at the end of each semester I go through all of my notes and cut out the images.
Since my notes only make sense to me, I rarely have anyone request to borrow them. :)

Instead of creating random floating people and robots I have been attempting to actually place them in a setting.
So here is The Space Man on a video screen with his space ship in the background and the horizon of the moon. There also appears to be a small flying saucer...he might be getting a visitor.
This is one of about 50 4"x6" pieces I have been working on for the past month and a half. This one was done a few weks ago.

"doodles in acrylic"
These were canvases that had been left laying around the ceramics studio and had a paper-mache base on them. I didn't have anything in mind, just simply wanted to work quick. Each was done in under 10 minutes with the skeleton being finished the fastest. I call the one on the left "The Villain," the one in the middle looks kind of like Harold minus his purple crayon, and of course there's a happy skeleton on the end. Maybe it's the same guy as a kid, an adult and passed on. What do you think?
you can buy them here

It's all the little things that stack up...final papers, final critiques...This is how I've been feeling for the past two weeks. Technically finals are next week but apparently everyone wanted to finish the semester early because the only critiques I have left are next Wednesday and are both are for Ceramics.
