Art Blast 4/25/2011

You’ll notice this week’s art blast is a little light. Although I (finally!) finished the origami whale stop motion video, I didn’t have time to take pictures for a new one. Worse, I didn’t get a sculpture done. Yeah, I’m a slacker. I did get the first draft of the … Continue reading

A Whale on the Move
