Taken by Tide

So the band formerly known as Far From Rectified has just recently(today!) changed their name to Taken by Tide--this means that I get to create a whole new band logo for them! :D
So this band was just recently created by three of my friends, Brandon, Brandon, and Alec. They haven't posted any music yet, but I've known for years what styles they like, and have an idea of what to expect.
I decided to model their logo after Alec's guitar, to give it the look they were looking for. It also gives the word Tide more of a tide, oceaney kind of feeling, which I though would look neat.
So please, comment and let me know what you think of it!
Here's there page for you to check them out on Facebook!

College Trip

This week, my family (except my youngest sister) drove down to Arkansas to drop my older sister off at college! On the way down I doodled a lot, and so I figured I would share the drawings with you! There are also some sketches from our stay there, so enjoy!

(All of these and more can be found under my Sketches.)

In the Style of Calder

In 9th grade art class, we were told to choose an artist and create a piece of artwork in his or her style. I chose one of my favorite artists Alexander Calder, and therefore created an abstract sculpture in his style. This one is made out of metal(some silvery, easy to cut, but firm kind), held together by some kind of bolt thing(thanks to my dad), and spray-painted black.
This specific type of piece is known as a stabile, compared to the mobile, which (fun fact!) was invented by Alexander Calder himself.
My piece still remains unnamed.
