Victory Lap

I got done with fall classes a week ago, and I've basically been lounging on my couchbed playing video games and sleeping ever since. I awoke today and realized it's been over a month (or longer!?) since I've posted anything on my blog. So here I am! 




The first image was taken in Detroit with my friend Ruby for one of her photography assignments at FIT, and the other two were also taken in the D on different days. 

Funny story. While I was doing the shoot in the last picture, someone broke into my car and jacked all my stuff. Computer, phone, cash, you name it. I drove the 30 minutes back to Ann Arbor with a massive hole in my windshield, and after I got home I didn't know what to do with myself. Not having a computer or phone is bizarre. 
Buuuut, everything is back in order now. I ain't mad.

More soon!

Camouflage Ruby

This past week, one of my assignments in a required art class was to choose a natural phenomenon in nature - I chose to do camouflaging animals! The assignment was to re-create the idea and form it into something we understand as artists, so of course, I had to paint my lovely friend Ruby Tanja!
I painted her using acrylic paints (not the best choice, as she had an excruciating time getting paint residue off in my bathtub..), and used a fabric my mom had tucked away somewhere in my house. Overall I think the photos turned out beautiful!
