In response to what happened to my external back-up hard drive, I decided I need to re-back everything up because I can't bear to loose it again. I got extremely lucky, and DJCAD kept copies of my entry portfolio, which had a lot of the missing work! So, I wanted to post here as a tribute and a reflection. The next few pieces are from my second semester in AFO, the foundation year of VCU arts school- at the time this semester I was enrolled in Space Research- where we made multiple sculptures, and Drawing.

|Last Night, a contour ink drawing.|
Well I think my charcoal work got better, but I could never do this good of a contour again! These were from my Freshamn year Drawing class with Ryan Lauterio. Definitely one of the hardest clases I have ever taken but well worth it! Learned so much from him... just to prove it I will upload my last two drawings I made in that class- to show the improvement! This one, "No More Games" Is expressing my love for AFO- the art foundation year... in my typical sarcastic humor. Floor to ceiling view, much larger than life! I can't remember which came first, ths one, or "Reveal and Conceal" so I just put them both up and know they were late in the semester.
These were my "reveal and Conceal" project in the same class. I can easily see the growth that occurred. Can you?
