Back To School January 21, 2010

Posted by Mitchell in Art.

Teachers, books, dirty looks, etc.

Yay! School starts tomorrow! I’m taking a class on Fridays this semester and for the first time in many years I’ll actually be going during the day time instead of after work. I’ll feel like a real college student!*  But since it’s just one day a week though so it’s going to be a loooooooong class: 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. What’s the class, you ask? Good question!  I’m taking ART 101: Beginning Drawing. Now, some of you who are familiar with my work may be giving me the ol’ ugly eyeball right now and think that I may as well be taking “English as a Second Language” or the like. Well I’m not taking this for an easy “A”. Although, I guess it probably will be. No, truth be told I’ve never really been all that happy with my drawing skills and I see this as an opportunity to sort of rebuild them from the ground up. It should be exciting! It will also be fun to blow away all the real beginner drawers. They’ll all be like “Whoa, look at this guy!” 😀

*To facilitate this and more easily blend in with the actual real college students I’m tie dying some t-shirts‡ and won’t trust anyone over 30.
‡Seriously!  I’m not kidding about the tie-dying part.  I already have the dye materials and now I’m just waiting on my shirt order.   Come on Hanes.com!  Send me my shirts already!**
**And underwear. Yup, gonna dye me some underwear. And socks. And towels. Hell, even a few skeins of white cotton yarn too. That’ll be cool to knit and/or crochet into something.

I did some tie-dye for the Girl Scouts this past September. It can be fun, as long as EVERYTHING IS PROTECTED AND YOU ARE OUTSIDE AWAY FROM ANYTHING THAT SOAKS UP DYE LIKE A SPONGE IN THE SAHARA!!!

Have fun with that!! 😀

We did tie dye in Girl Scouts eons ago. We had to use all natural dyes though so the colors sucked. 🙂

From the pictures I’ve seen on the box and the instructional DVD there ain’t nothing natural about these dyes! This is some vivid stuff right here.
