Pictures! And crud.  
Ffffffff--okay. I have an exam in modern art history tomorrow, and I still have no freaking clue what I'm preparing for. TAs teaching this class, ahhhhh, it really kind of sucks a lot. :( But I felt like I'd done more for it, which is why I stuck with it. Fucking minimalism, what the fuck.

On the plus side, I finally managed to work out who it was that did some sculpture I remember liking when I took Sculpture 1 and was reading through the books Dylan brought in: Tom Friedman, and this is the piece I was thinking of specifically. I warn you, it's kind of gory, if you can call a paper sculpture gory. It is a "self portrait in a state of fragmentation produced by a motorcycle accident." And this is the other one I was thinking of: Erased Playboy Centerfold. Ha-ha and all that. I like the cleverness of his art and his sense of humor. People always scoff at that. Whatever, art is hilarious.

To illustrate that point, I have some pictures of myself that I took in preparation for a self-portrait based on one of Odd Nerdrum's paintings. This is the one I'm hoping to use, although there were some others that I don't have a link for, as they are in a book.

One with flash:

And here's a nerdy one of me attempting to emote with a towel around my neck for a different painting:

And if you're interested in seeing all of them, god knows why, the gallery is here. A lot of them look very similar though, so I figured posting them was just redundant.

Also I'm working my way through Watchmen. Liking Rorschach is a given, though I will always love the Question more... but aww, I think I like Dan the best. It's just, aww, Dan. :D

And now I am going to go paint... nnnnow. Yes.

You are too cute - very Peter Lorre-ish adorable in the towel pic, too. :) Do you have green eyes?

Looking forward to seeing your self-portrait.

Thank you! I choose to take the Peter Lorre-ish comment as a compliment, since he definitely had his cute moments. And yes, my eyes are green. :)

So far the portrait has been coming out well, so I'm excited! :D

The towel picture is Made of Win.

Also, omg, I am going to strangle myself with this non-fiction piece that I am not even half way through writing a first draft of, yay!

Oh, the towel picture. I'm thinking of painting it on my own time, now, just because it would be so hilarious.

And at least we've made it through the first round of non-fiction writing pieces. :/ Now if only there were ideas floating around for the second piece...

Thanks very much. :) I haven't taken pictures of myself for a long time, for a variety of reasons. But I figured, since I was forced into doing it for this assignment, I might as well post them.

omg, that sculpture. I would put that in my house. (along with the erased centerfold, lol)

you are adorable and you have the prettiest eyes in the world <3

I would totally love to have that sculpture. It is seriously too awesome for words. Both are, in their own ways, even though the centerfold is just a piece of paper. THE TITLE MAKES A DIFFERENCE!

And lol, ty bb. *blush blush bats eyes*
