at any rate, i'm rather excited about this class and our first discussion today was really interesting (i was also sitting on a giant love sac, which i think helped).
as part of the class, we have to keep a blog to track our work and progress over the semester. so, for those of you interested in whatever the heck i end up doing, you can follow the intricacies of it all on the list of blogs over there. and for those of you who aren't especially interested, you can continue reading my usual esoteric rantings and tangents here at your leisure.
our first assignment was interesting enough: to give ourselves an idea on just how much a face can stretch and change, we were to spend 15-20 minutes in front a mirror, making all sorts of different faces and observing what happens. any of you who have spent any time with me or looked through my iphoto library know that this is like assigning me to watch a black and white movie; i'm doing this all the time anyway.
if we wanted, we could take pictures of ourselves.
i tried separating them into exaggerated expressions,
anyway, it's a cool class and i get to make faces. bonus.
