After spending over 24 hours staring at the CAD drawing for my final project, there was no doubt in my mind that today had to be a ‘chill’ day.. Otherwise I’d probably go completely insane! Finals are fast approaching (and that potentially suicidal Structures Exam) so I’m trying to push as hard as I can.
IT started off with me decorating a drawing notebook at a promotional event one of the art stores put on. I suppose that paved the way for the great afternoon that followed. The “Taste of the World Food Festival” proved to be well worth waiting for and YEASS!! I TEMPORARILY satisfied my craving for a patty. Was a little piece (beef) but I sure savoured every bit of that. Otherwise, I sampled dishes; most of which I can’t even pronounce from Egypt, India, Peru, Brazil, Venezuela, Mozambique, Germany Denmark Thailand and THE CARIBBEAN to name a few. I was so full that even two hours later and a random compulsion to salsa in the ‘performing area’, I still felt full! I refuse to eat anything else until tomorrow!
Back tracking a bit; last week I accidentally ended up at one of the other SCAD school buildings. It was then that I realized how little I knew about the other disciplines at SCAD. I walked into an open model studio session in progress and decided to try it out the following week – today! Sure enough I was right there with my drawing pads and media and ready to see what would unfold. Truth be told it’s been months since I’ve drawn anything. Initially I wondered why I’d even bothered but after the first one and talking to a few others in the session I was ready to go for it again! In the end I was quite pleased.

It was so exhilarating that I couldn’t stop and went on to start a sketch of Wallin Hall before the bus came.
What a day huh! AND now .. back to joining lines to make the 3-D model! …..I am in desperate need of a massage . More to come
