Since the submissions are closing...and my mind just finally gave out...I tried to do some sketches tonight to no avail...I hit the wall....I decided to post my submission that I had done before the colored pencil version. Hopefully some sleep will renew my mind.
BTW, a few times this week I've had people ask me "You're smart?!?!" in such a surprised fashion following conversations about things I had done when I was a student in school. Like I won a science fair in middle school that went to state dealing with modules that transmitted sound using light...so ambient light would interfere with transmissions. Or, the fact that I was number 15 in my class for a long time and still graduated within the top 6% even with sherking my last semester to work on a college art portfolio (which didn't even get me college credit with a perfect score!). I don't know if it's the fact that I'm an art teacher, but apparently people think that I'm lacking in the intelligence department. But it's both disheartening and highly insulting to see THAT level of surprise. I graduated with honors from college, I didn't take blow off classes. If I wanted to, I could have become a doctor, but I chose what I loved. Is it really that surprising?
I guess the moral of the story is not to make assumptions based on career title.
