Today is cloudy, but it's Spring! These last few days have been sunny and awesome in Cheney, Washington. Since it has been sunny Chris, our drawing teacher, let us wander campus and draw whatever. Since my house is just a few blocks away from the art building I ended up wandering back there for some food and art. Here's a drawing I came up with while I was sitting on the stump in front of the house.
We've started moving from line work to value work. So, obviously, our most recent homework has been a value study. Here's my favorite attempt at adding some shading to a contour drawing, I think this one was pretty successful, too!
Lentil and soybean soup! With some carrot greens for color and texture, tasty!
How do you power a body through four hours of class, including a presentation, with a single meal? Oven omelette! Cubed russet potato, red potato & sweet potato with carrot and garlic rounds and plenty of onion (plus more carrot greens). Mix up a couple eggs and mix into the cooked mess and toss into the oven for 20-25 minutes and enjoy!
This rice turned out amazing! Cooked the rice with the juice and zest of a lime and cilantro. Stirred in some pre-soaked lentils and soybeans about 2/3 through the cooking process and steamed carrots, leek, onion, shallot and garlic on the side. Mix up the mess and top with pepper and paprika. I'm stoked that this bowl has a similar volume to my smaller cooking pot, cooking for one just got more efficient.
So, last Saturday I had the pleasure of listening to Lars Brown talk about some One Piece philosophy and the awesome-tacity of comic books & graphic novels. He was on back to back panels for this years Get Lit! in Spokane. And (on a similar geek topic) even though I haven't been playing video games, I still like to keep up with the industry through magazines I find and the occasional blog. Plus dorking out to some nerdcore, chiptunes and, of course, JoCo. Gotta keep flexing my dork muscles and get ready for next PAX!
