uc davis

Ok, so...

I have a friend who goes to UC Davis, and apparently the students there get like roughly 250 pages of printer paper to use over the quarter. Apparently, his neighbors hadn’t used much of their paper, so they thought to might as well use them now since they won’t roll over onto next quarter….
…AND THIS IS WHAT THEY DID

AND I JUST

OUT OF ALL THINGS

THEY COULD HAVE PRINTED

THEY PICKED THIS

AND PUT THEM EVERYWHERE IN THEIR DORM

Happy 4th of July!  My beginning art prof wanted us to draw three rectangular structures, cutting shapes to create some sort of a building, but in an attempt to draw something more complex, I drew a simplified rendition of the UC Davis Social Sciences building aka the Death Star, nicknamed because of the concrete/metal exterior and the literal maze inside (the architect is said to have designed this mess, trying to force the social science students to talk to each other while finding their way to classes — what a savage guy).

This is actually my first art class, so the result has lots of blurry and uneven shading, which really bugs me.  I can’t seem to figure out how to use a blending stump properly.  The tip on the left is flattened already, and after running it over graphite, I can still see the pencil marks through the awful blending.

Them alliterations. Sorry I don’t really know my counties. I just know Santa Clara County, where I’m from, which was confusing to me as a kid because Santa Clara is also a city. And then there’s Yolo County where UC Davis(my school) and part of Sacramento is. Oh and there’s Orange County, which is where all the socal kids are basically from. Just googled Contra Costa County and looks like it’s part of the bay, I think Berkeley is in it.
