Travis Barker Portrait

Textured portrait with gesso and acrylics on illustration board for Illustration Techniques class.

Today in Art History we went to the Freer House on Ferry St. It was pretty disappointing because all the paintings were replicas and the frames were prints of the frames matted on there. And then we saw patches of paint that was left over from the bronzeish golden textured flair the one room had and its really crappy that in the 50s when it became an institution it was painted over all white and grey. It was a gorgeous house, but everything was removed that would have been wonderous to see. It was like we took a trip to see a replica or something trying to be what it once was originally but it wasn't. I didn't enjoy it as much as my past field trips. I learned a lot about the family that lived there but other than that... meh.

One day after all my efforts, I will make a magnificent awesome Sci-Fi background. And everyone will be like OMG STEPHANIE IS THE BESTEST EVAR and i'll be like, I KNO RITE?! And i'll throw marvelous parties of statues of Ifus spewing forth fountains of Jones Soda and only VIPS can get in. When really it's $50.00 at the door.

But no, not really. I'm just a poor white woman tryin to make it in DEE-TROIT

Here's the kitchen.
