Spray Paint

     In English class one day I was looking at someone's spray-paint art on the wall and the more I thought of it the more I wondered how they got the different shadowing and details. The more I thought of it the more I wanted to try it. I have always been interested in the Greek culture so I thought I would start with a figure that was small and simple: The discus thrower.
     I put this image through photoshop then printed it. After printing the image I used a blending marker to copy it on a harder type of paper.The first stencil I was was of the general shape of the discus thrower, the second was of the general shadowing, and the third was of the details of the face, muscles, and bone. This was my first test:

     Using some gold spray paint from home for the general shape and using a bronze spray-paint I made a second test.

     For the final test I spray-painted the whole figure onto the back of my iPhone case.

     The second spray-paint project that I tried was for my friend that lives in South Korea. I bought a cardboard "H" from the Paper Source because her name is Hanseul. Then spray-painted it with the gold spray-paint. Then making a stencil of her name I spray-painted one side in bronze and the other with a neon pink.

Prom Video

     For prom there was a contest on who could make the best video of asking their date out to prom. Most of the other videos were of people asking their dates while someone recorded it but I wanted to take a different spin on it. So I made a stop-motion film asking my date to prom. Here is the YouTube Video:
(He said "Yes" by the way)

Birthday Card

     Coming up in March is my best friends birthday so I wanted to make a nice card. I hand drew "Happy Birthday" in pencil then went over it with a golden paint marker. For the border I used water color and for the border of the white area I also used water color. Inside the card I made the birthday cake and present 3D by just cutting to parallel lines and pushing them in and glueing the sides. I made the cake and present with an exacto knife. The flags also say happy birthday with I just glued on a string and put it through the paper.
