i did this for a fire-themed assignment. i was trying to stay away from the literal sense of
fire, since i'm always so literal and i hate it. I told myself no red, orange, or yellow,
no obvious flames, etc. so,
with gum wrappers, white and gold acrylic paint, and micron pen
i made this, "The Sun Over Egypt"
which i meant to be a fun, witty piece that
was simple but clever and still captured the assignment
in an interesting way.
MY CLASS SHAT ON IT.
literally. everyone thought i half assed the assignment
when i actually gave it a lot of thought and multiple drafts.
i. hate. trying.
how come marc johns can do it so effortlessly?
tonight i found this piece by him (below) and just started laughing.
where did everyone's imagination go? and why is it not
okay for me to use mine?
so anyway, that's enough self loathing for one night.
i leave you with the below picture, from the almighty Pretty in Pink.
my sentiments exactly...
screw that class. i'm sleeping in tomorrow
