January 1999, Graphic Design I. Prisma Pencils. Not surprisingly, this folder that I made for my GD II class is unfinished. Since I couldn't decide what colour the ground should be (brown and grey are just too dull, but what else could I use?), I never bothered to finish it. This is the first project I really used my Prisma Pencils on (I got them for Christmas:). In case you didn't notice, I took the idea from the set of the play "Cats"... It's a junkyard with various items in it, and like in the Prologue song, there are cats peeking out everywhere. My name, which is (luckily) an anagram for "catsy" was a rip off of the "Cats" lettering. The upper right hand corner has Grizabella's little transporter to the Heaviside Layer, but was never more than a dirty pencil sketch. I try to forget the "levitating hose" on the right (WTF was I thinking *there*?). Time wore away the right side of the folder, but fortunately that was cut off by the scanner.

Early 1999, Graphic Design I. Pencil. One of our worksheet projects was to do a reproduction of the statue "My Heart" by Georgia O'Keefe (I think? I'm too lazy to look it up... I've failed you, Mrs. Christian!). The little cuts that are supposed to be in it are a little messed up, and the thing would probably look better without them, but it still passes off as "decent" with 'em. 35.2k

Early 1999, Graphic Design I. Pencil. A simple exercise where we took a crumpled piece of paper and drew it from 4 different angles (as you can see, I had to use the back side of the paper, which is my lame excuse for two different .gifs here *g*). Not bad for one of my late night, one hour "OMG this is due tmr" episodes. 27.7k

Early 1999, Graphic Design I. Pencil. O, look, a chair! How prolific! It's not anything wonderful, but I put it up anyway. If you have any qualms about this, you can e-mail me. 42.1k

Early 1999, Graphic Design I. Colour pencil. This was a really fun and thought-provoking project... We had to make a "crossword puzzle" of 5 or more things that had a common thread, and draw pictures along with them... And, of course, it being a unit over perspective, we had to do the letters in perspective from a vanishing point of our choice. I ended up making mine over "Unnamed Simpsons Characters"... This is the unfinished project (tho it *was* eventually finished), without the teenager drawn in. I'd scan it in if I still had it, but it was at the school during the tornado, and I never got it back. :( Note the "m" on the Comic Book Guy's name has the perspective the wrong way... Simpsons, Bee Guy, Pasty Faced Lawyer, Comic Book Guy, One Eyebrow Baby (who actually does have a name), Crazy Old Man and Generic Teenager (not shown;) 20th Century Fox. 136k

March 1999, Graphic Design I. Pencil. Our teacher went around and took pix of us on her digicam *drools* and then printed them off for us... So we could draw them upside down. Yeah, I put the pic up rightside up, but I really did draw it upside down. It was easier than drawing it the other way IMO... Not focusing on exactly what it's supposed to look like the "right" way. It isn't as bad as it could have been... *whispers* Another put off drawing, turned in late.... 56.1k

April 1999, Graphic Design I. Pencil. This had to be done in class, so I couldn't put it off. ;) We had different objects on our table, and then we chose two of them to draw at opposite ends of the paper, then we had to "morph" the objects into each other in the middle panels. Sorry this is so light... And ignore the perspective changes (from looking at it to the top to looking at it from the side... I still don't know how I did that one.) 9.59k

Summer 99 Pen. This little beauty was one of a series of post-it notes I drew on during a boredom fit at work. I had "Andromeda" by Kimaira in my head, and I had this image of how the title/lyrics would look based on how the song sounded (it's very flowy, dreamy, thick...). I eventually came up with this, and later turned the title part into a graphic to put on my door in university. Andromeda lyrics John Mulhausen. 34.6k

Summer 99. Pen. Another post-it note creation, of another Kimaira song. This time I had "Stereo!" in my head... I can't explain the song... It's bubbly and strong at the same time, it kind of pops out at you. I had to cut some lyrics out so it'd all fit, but you can't tell unless you know the song, obviously. Apologies to John Mulhausen for messing up his songs! Stereo! lyrics John Mulhausen. 43.6k

Summer 99. Pencil and pen. For some reason I wanted to do a pointilism drawing (yeah, I really had that much time on my hands, too!), so inbetween taking phone calls I sketched this (it's quite Monet-ish) and then began filling it in with a rollerball pen. I was too chicken to draw in the little whisps of wind and the mountains in the background in fear of ruining the woman, and the "Sleep" in the corner was just cos I had "Sleep" by Garbage in my head.
