Visual Alphabet, pt 1

For one of my art classes, I had to make a visual alphabet based on an artist. I chose the Chinese artist Xu Beihong, who is famous for his ink wash paintings of horses. For my alphabet, I used an animal for each letter and tried to emulate some of his style in my ink washes.

The following includes the first half, A-M (Enjoy!):Albatross
Beluga Cheetah

 Dolphin

Eagle
Fox

Goat Horse Iguana Jellyfish
Kitten Lion Moose

Wild Name

This image was taken in Emerald Cove, Bass Lake, filtered in Photoshop. The design was created in Illustrator, using the letters of my name.

It’s been how long? Oh yeah, here’s this mask I made…

I haven’t posted here in forever.

That’s really lame.

I blame it all on Tumblr.

*Tumblr, shocked, points at himself* “Who, me?”

Yeah. Well, I guess college had done this to me too. Those studio classes will get ya.

However, I have been rather prolific in the last couple months, and it would be a shame to let no one know about it. I guess. If anyone’s still following me. I have 78 followers on Tumblr, though…

Anyways so…first and foremost, I realized I didn’t post my final 3D project from May.

(Once again) LAME.

I’m going to fix that right…now.

The assignment: create a mask that involves 2 animals, with characteristics that are representative of yourself.

Meet Red Hawk Wolf.

…Then walk around and creep in the library and classroom windows during everyone’s finals.

Apparently someone was tripped out enough to Instagram me, commenting that someone must have put something in his coffee that morning.

I can roll with that.

P.S. I definitely wore this for Halloween. I got more attention than I’ve had in a month, I think.

 

Adrenaline

I caught his face.
Inhale sharply, look away
Nerves on end
Adrenaline. Relentless.

Green light, not for me.
Green light, he goes and is off, forever maybe.
It’s what I told him—
to go and be off, forever maybe.

But a change of heart, a change of mind, or lack of it.
Lack of it all.
I go, I go and fly off, off after him.
I should have said no, no to the flying;
no to the off after him.

But I fly. I fly and fly,
Speed is mine, the wind rushes by.
A curb of cement.
An aim for sidewalk, an aim, shoot, and miss
I truly fly. The snap of a second.

And the second snapped, I feel the hard stone
A baked gray ground.
It is in my hands, against my breast,
jarred left hip, burning left knee.
Crash.

Crash.
I crash, am crashing, crashed.
Down and down and down.

I rise, adrenaline to ravish my body
Screaming at me, No pain, no pain
But pain, it came, it comes nonetheless
Nonetheless adrenaline always fades.

And he is out of sight, gone, has gone off, forever maybe.
Because it’s what I told him—
to go and be off, forever maybe.
Road rash scarring my knee.
