I took a quote from the movie that made me laugh. The designer said that if he sees something written in Helvetica it's just like saying not to bother as it's a boring font that everyone uses. Seems true as since watching it I'm seeing Helvetica everywhere.
Put the text on a found image of some cool paper. Also figured out how to make my text look like it's actually printed on the thing, which is cool.
All material is copper except for the sun which is bronze riveted onto the back.
This piece is for my mom, she likes elephants. This took 3 weeks using many techniques. Hammering(texture on the tree and base), roll printing (the texture on the elephants), sawing and piercing (cutting the pieces out), Liver of Sulpher to get the colour on the back and tree, as well as torching for soldering and colour.
The head of the baby elephant can be removed to wear as a brooch that is about 2.5 inches across at the ears.
This was made in my first year at ACAD.
On the way to Hanna I stopped at this little pink house. I did get up the gall to go inside after some lingering outside. Once I got further in, every noise started sounding like a crack head coming at me with a rusty knife (it was windy that day) and my hands and knees were getting increasingly wobbly.
I ventured 5 steps upstairs and that was as far as I went. Mainly because I didn't know how structurally sound the floor was up there and two, I was getting really nervous!
This was at the top of the stairs of the little pink house. I'm always amazed at the small things left behind like this. It always makes me think that someone was in such a hurry to leave that they neglected to take this. Or that the poor box was of no use to anyone so it was left behind.
There were a couple rooms in front of the stairs and another space a bit behind me to the right that might have been a room, just with no door. There was a rusted box spring left behind in this house too.
This was as far as I got to the top floor of the house as by this time I was really creeped out. I did try to pry the box open after photographing it, but it was rusted shut, though no paint was left as far as I could tell.
The roundhouse in Hanna, Alberta. It was really neat to see a spot where the old engines were stored and maintained.
Hoodoo Provincial Park.
"Hoodoos are eroded pillars of soft sandstone rock, topped with a resilient cap. The cap protects the softer rock underneath from eroding as quickly as the surrounding rock. Once the cap deteriorates, the pillar is more vulnerable to the elements and is subjected to rapid deterioration."
