Black and White

WIP. 7×7 inches. Charcoal powder, Charcoal pencil, BFK Rives paper.

Some work-in-progress photographs from my first assignment for Extended Media. (It struck me that perhaps I should use the scanner more often for better quality images, so something to try again next time.) We learned a very basic book binding technique in the first class last week and had to create a small, themed book using that method. My theme was “ebb” or the process of flowing away.

I’ve been feeling really impressed with people who are able to continually blog with a busy school schedule and after disappearing off the face of the earth for the past week, I’m hoping that I can find more time to post. Remember to please follow me on Twitter! So far my courses this semester are off to a good start and while I have no particular opinion about my studio courses yet, I do know that I’m quite enjoying my Sense and Perception psychology class, considering that I’m usually very ‘meh’ about science courses.

Have a good rest of the week with lots of lovely weather! (It was 60ĖšF today in mid-state New York! Winter who?)

  1. like these pictures, hope you have a great time there!
