it was our school's first talent show, and jake decided it would be great to do a live painting with one of our students and me. we got 2 6-foot masonite boards, tons of paint, and spent the next week creating what you see above. we covered it in watercolor so that it looked white. for the show, we played sigur ros, and "choreographed" a way to uncover the painting in a way that made it look like we painted this in the time it took for the 6 mintue song to play. paint and water were flying everwhere while lights flickered and the music played. i slipped and fell in the paint, and the audience loved every minute of it. some people were convinced that we had actually painted this on stage.
here it is, at last. three high school girls and i worked on this yearbook for 4 and a half months. these are the pages that i designed (co-designed on some of them). i am super-proud of the yearbook team. i wish i could display all of their work, it's amazing...but it would take up tons of rooms. they worked hard, and put their hearts into this book. thanks christina, nicole and vivienne!

This was fun. Watercolor background, and a cut out pen and ink with colored pencil. There was no pressure about messing up the background. I didn't make puddles this time. I was neat and tidy, with a little paper towel and boxes and tins. I had a particularly lovely time.
