so apparently you can only post comments if you have AIM or blogger, or something weird like that. but you can always stalk me on facebook, and tell me what you think there! :3
EDIT: i just had to switch it to 'anybody can comment'. epic fail.

this is a coloured pencil sketch that i started and decided i will never finish (mostly because i sat on it today and it is destroyed...) good thing i scanned it first! :)
it is obviously pieced together, sorry about the poor quality... FAIL

mask of the whale

is it the force itself, or just a mask for something larger, more evil?
i think the evil is projected from ourselves... (hence the man-whale) :3
it started as simply a mask, then metamorphosed into something different. the product of a discussion of melville's symbols in moby dick, relating to emersonian philosophy.

part of a series. i'm working with some other ideas too, relating to the same subject!
aldo leopold's concept of interconnectedness, aesthetic quality (with relation to mary austin, a little muir), and emerson's ideas collected in his essay discipline, which has meant much to me.

anyone out there? i would love to hear what you all think once in a while; although i'm not entirely sure how this blog thing works, and if just anybody can comment. oh well! :)

most of these were done today. it's amazing how some days i can have half a million ideas, and some days it makes me ill to pick up a pencil.

just in case you were wondering what any of them are,mean,standfor (in order, top to bottom);
lola; surreal-like self-portrait; myself; just a lion/man/beast; organic chemistry test friday; no explanation; snarky bird-dog.

cho or han?

happy election day! i'm afraid it has not been perfectly happy for me... the next person who asks me if i have voted will see me completely unspool. :)

cho-han bakushi is a japanese game using two dice, which are shaken by the dealer in a bamboo cup or bowl. when the dice are released, the gamblers place wagers on whether the sum of the numbers showing on the dice will be han (odd) or cho (even).
