I haven't picked up a paintbrush in a while, and I figured a few weeks back that if I'm going to be taking painting in the spring, I should probably get back on that horse. I figured a good warmup exercise would be to make a painting for a friend's xmas present. Just finished it and gave it to him today.

He's a vidjagame fan like me so........Megaman!

Fall semester

So fall semester just ended last week here at the UI. I took printmaking which was awesome (pictures below). My intro to graphics design class I didn't much care for, because it was mostly busy work. Another boring art history (2 down, and 2 to go), and an interesting web design class.

A relief print (self portrait) done with linoleum.

An intaglio print done with etched acrylic.

Screen print done as a surreal self portrait.

Second and third screen prints made together for final. Pointillism style (I guess).
