Drawing Peanuts


 These are some of my favorite pages from my peanut book. I made the book myself out of some small canvas boards and bristol board for the pages. I used a book that i got from an ART O MAT as inspiration for making the book. I didnt really use a lot of lettering through out the book so i made the last page a lettering page with a poem about peanuts written out three times in lettering. i really like the way that my peanut book turned out. 

Cleaning Up...alone!

Hannah and I were the only ones from the oasis group to help move the concrete pieces from the parking lot to the storage area. we along with Tristan Haley Rebecca sharon Kristina and Philip moved all the concrete pieces from all the groups even though some of the groups had none of their members out to help. We spent a little over an hour making multiple trips from the parking lot to the storage area. it seems like the same people who were out helping clean up were the same people who did the majority of the clean up when we moved our stuff from the inside storage area to the outside storage area. 



This is an image of our stepping stones. i helped add the texture and round off the edges of these particular stones. we had to add the texture ourselves to a lot of them because the natural texture made from the cardboard did not work on all the molds.

First Model.

This is a picture of the first model we made. we originally wanted to make pillars and a full path of stepping stones. We were told that the pillars would take a month to dry and we decided against a full pathway because there would be too many pieces to make.

Getting Molds and Getting started.

I got these images from our class blog The pictures of the shoe boxes are a bunch of boxes that Hannah and I collected at the mall. we went around to all the shoe stores asking to get their boxes. the other image shows the process of us using those boxes to create our stones


these are some pages from my sketchbook of notes that i took during in class discussions throughout the process of this project. there are a lot of notes and drawings and small sketches to show what we talked about in class.

Top View and Section

Drawing Perspectives

the first time i drew the pictures i did not add enough detail and i didnt like the way the pencil smeared and looked dirty, so i redid all of them in pen and added a lot more detail and i like the way the second ones turned out.
