Brushes, Finals, and Wings

Most of the time there's nothing I love more than a new toy. I ran to Meiningers in the hot sun to pick up mat board for my final project for my design class. Since I was there I couldn't help but go over to the brush section and find a brush to ink with. I bought one with a fine tipped point and it's made of bamboo. I haven't had time to test it out yet but I will next week. I wanted to lick the tip to check for a sharp point like Keri suggested but I was too intimidated. I felt like everyone was watching me and the brush was already at a fine point from the way it was set. You know, before you crunch it and loosen the bristles. Our critique for our final project on the four seasons of man was yesterday and it was great. I put a lot of time and thought into that project and I think it shows. One of the guys in my class saw my illogical realism piece and thought I would be good at making comic books. All I could do was smile.

I wish I had my camera with me because as I was walking through the computer lab with some friends, they started giggling. I asked what they were giggling about and they said, "You didn't see that? That woman with angel wings on? You have to go back and see." So I did. I peeked around the corner and in the middle of everyone in the lab was a woman standing up looking through papers with the most beautiful angel wings on her back. I think they were attatched with straps like a backpack, only smaller. My friends thought it was weird and said they noticed her working at Electronics Boutique wearing the same wings. I think it's odd, but cool to have that much confidence and strut your stuff in wings. Maybe I'll draw it....
