This was my Saturday project: It's a mix of the 70's and Picasso. Not quite what I was going for. I'm still learning how to make my aquatints not too dark. I'm embarrassed to tell you also that the image was inspired from a photo of a great grandmother, a horrible resemblance I know. This was a little collaborative class project. I enjoyed making the sparkly skirt. And yes, that is a lock of my own hair in there. This mixed-media piece was made on a piece of aluminum for a show in NY or something, where they put the art in a plastic sleeve and it will go on display like that, passed around in a binder. Interesting....kind of weird...
I have finally managed to make a soft and moist cake in this altitude. It's white cake with raspberry filling and 7 minute frosting! Yum.

Lastly, for all you curly tops out there, may I recommend Paul Mitchell's "Round Trip." Bring back those baby locks! (I had ringlets as a child for those of you who don't remember.) It makes soft natural looking curls (never crunchy). Just put it in after the shower, dry it with a diffuser, and you've got rad hair in seconds! (see photo: radness)

Oh, yes. I see the radness radiating and curling out from your strained, yet radical smile.
I enjoy seeing your projects. You have a rad take on things. Also, yum to the tasty looking cake.It would be an appropriate, dare I say, rad, accompaniment to the glass of soymilk I'm drinking right now.

Emily, I love the hair! Keep up this 'do for sure. And, I love both the drawing and the mixed media collage. Very hip. I would buy it if I could! Where could I get a huge canvas (maybe 4'x4') for cheap? Any ideas?
