The process

So, this is me carving my block. It took a while because it was a obstacle to get used to the tools and figuring out how to best use them. But, it is almost done! Warning: Block carving is harmful to the back. Ouchhhh.

And this is Amar, my Egyptian friend, trying to show me how to carve my block. :)

Toilet paper ahoy!

This is for a hospital project where we took toilet paper rolls and decorated them in our own ways to be displayed in cabinets along a hospital corridor. This is my bad attempt. :) Looks good on screen as opposed to in real life.

"Art is Long and Life is short, let us at least do something before we die" -william morris

These are pics from my progress review presentation in college. We were asked to sum up our past three months. It's been a hard task for many if not most. I had a lot of research done on my part but nothing much actual to show. However, after contemplating it and a little bit more work, I think it came out OK. I'm happy with the progress so far and look forward to moving onwards from here.
You can probably see from the pictures a few designs I've drawn up, patterns that I will be transferring to wooden blocks to be carved. Also, there is a block that I've started and it is in the process.
