Do Not

I just finished this one. It is, of course, dry erase marker on the bathroom mirror. The toilet paper roll was Ian's idea. I like the way he thinks so I just had to add it. This one actually was inspired by the holiday windows I've been painting. After drawing all the Santa crap I was looking around at what people normally have painted on windows. It's mostly text.

Here's a picture of my classroom whiteboard. The project is on Perspective. They have to create a four panel perspective composition four sides of a cardboard box. What they do with the other two is their business. The plant thing started because a student showed me a drawing what she thought would make a good Tat, so I kind of embellished what she had.

Here is my latest dry erase mirror drawing. Sometimes it's nice to just do a quick drawing composition rather than some elaborate, psycho color assault.

TARDIS Halloween costume

My son Ian and I made a TARDIS costume for Halloween. If you don't know, TARDIS stands for "Time And Relative Dimension In Space" and it is the name of the time/space ship that belongs to The Doctor on the British science fiction show Doctor Who. Ian (he's eleven) and I made it from cardboard boxes, electrical tape, acrylic paint, a mason jar, a flashlight, and a massive number of hot glue sticks. It was an enormous success, with people wanting pictures and facebook posts galore.
