Abstract Plaster Carving of the Word Arbitrate

Abstract Plaster Carving of the Word Arbitrate

This is the carving about half way through. It started as a large, 3 sided block and then I used a chisel to rough carve out the image from the damp plaster. Pottery tools and sandpaper were used to finish the piece.

Two of the faces are speaking since when both are talking; they aren’t listening to each other. The third face doesn’t have a mouth, it can only listen and watch.

There is a 4th face that is hidden unless you are looking down at the sculpture. I didn't think anyone but me would spot the 4th face that unites them all but it was caught immediately. I try to put something odd in projects that pleases me but is easily missed.

Rube Goldberg Salad Machine Illustrator Drawing

Rube Goldberg Salad Machine Illustrator Drawing
The Illustrator drawing shows how to make a Rube Goldberg style salad. The dressing is poured which causes the tomato to drop on the cracker inside the grapefruit gear. The gear spins, hitting the chicken leg which knocks the radish of the celery stalk. The radish tips over the carrot, knocking the cheese into the bread. The bread tilts, causing the cucumber to roll down the carrot into the salad greens. Simple.

Bike Gears Drawn In Illustrator

bike gears illustration
I did this illustrator drawing for a class assignment where we were supposed to include a live trace of an image we found on the internet. I chose to utilize the logo from the Minuteman Bikeway.

I tried to find out who designed the logo but there were no artistic credits on the bikeway's site. The bike gear sprocket and chain was based on a photo by Tristan Savatier.
