I’m living at my parents’ house for the month of May, and I decided to redecorate my childhood bedroom a bit. I mean, this beach scene has been hanging up in here since 1995 and I can’t figure out why I’ve chosen it to watch me while I sleep.
I took the painting out and discovered it was attached to a piece of foam core.
I started gluing my mainstay craft supply onto it: encyclopedia pages from the A-B volume. There were some pages on arachnids, but luckily I saw the scary pictures before I glued them to the foam core. I used glue stick so that the pages wouldn’t be ruffly from a water-based glue.
On the other side, I glued the pages down with water-based glue whose brand that you can probably guess.
I found this drawing of a bicycle on the INTERNETS and decided to free-hand something similar by using my favorite language: MATH.
I traced a circle using a plate I found in the kitchen. The math comes in here: I measured the diameter of the drawing, then compared it to the measurement of my plate. My plate was approximately 3.5 times larger in diameter so I drew the centers of the circle 3.5 times of the distance between the circles of the drawing. Freehand, you know?
Once my drawing was finished, I re-framed it.
Here it is, hanging up above my bed. I left my bicycle in Cleveland so I’ve been riding my brother’s bike. It’s just not the same.
I am currently on the lookout for a cheap single-speed bike. Did you know that only single people ride single-speed bikes? TMYK. CMYK.
