My Little Hand Mixer

So, Wednesday nights are Transportation design in my class, but MONDAY night is devoted to Product Design. I think I enjoy product design a little more. This is one of the renderings I did of a Hand Mixer for my midterm project. It's supposed to be 50's retro, but my teacher said that it's taking on more of an art deco feel. Either way I'm just excited that I'm finally learning how to render metal more accurately!

Friday the 13th. . .

. . .of JUNE!!!

Okay, Okay, I know I'm a couple of days late, but it's more of a recap post for the familia anyway. :)

So, I was lucky enough, or unlucky if you're crazy superstitious, enough to be born on the 13th, and this year, aside from having the awesome luck of my birthday being on a Friday, it was also my 30th birthday!!! Now, being the little black spot on society that I am, I find Friday the 13th to be my good luck day. Call it positive thinking, reverse superstition, whatever, but I think it's an awesome omen that to bring to an end my 3rd complete decade on this planet, I get to celebrate on my good luck day. :) AND, not to mention, I actually had a birthday party for once, be it very small, AND I finally got to have my mini Friday the 13th marathon!!

It was an ultra super awesome birthday, (and to anyone who's curious, no I do not feel old, I'm actually super excited to be 30) and this fast, super sketchy (which I'm supposed to be praticing NOT being sketchy, but I don't care) little self portrait is to commemorate the occasion!

YAY, Birthdays!

P.S. To friends and family I told about my awesome present from Potatofarmgirl, click here to see it in all it's awesomeness!!

P.P.S. In case you're curious, I'm holding my Mighty Muggs Bespin Luke action figure and the most awesome Blythe doll EVER MADE!!! (Thanks guys, I totally love it! I also was lucky enough to get General Grevious and Emperor Palpatine, but I only have two hands and didn't feel like drawing myself as a spider just so I could hold all my nifty action figures.

On a final note, for your viewing pleasure: Carlos being sat on by Tom. Amazingly, extremely drunk people are very light.
