Baked a cake today.

Baked a cake with my sister today for a friend's impromptu wedding... It was vanilla, with a meringue icing, topped with marshmallow fondant flowers. I'm really good at procrastinating.

Summer Doldrums

I am promising myself that after this, I will be useful and do things.

Random Sketches

Back in Canada. I'll post more Italy drawings once I get a chance to scan them and stuff... but in the mean time, here are some random drawings I found while cleaning out my computer; they are from my sketchbook sometime this past year.

Painting sketches

Ha. Some really quick painting sketches. Sadly, I took pictures of them under a yellow light, so they look really sepia-ey. Not that they would have looked any better under better lighting.

Sculpture Sketches

Sculpture sketches...

"Aaron" by Pietro Francaulla (or something...)

Mercury (The Messenger) by Giambologna

La Pieta de Michelangelo by Michelangelo... meant to go on his tomb, but never finished. Michelangelo included a self portrait; he's the man at the top of the sculpture.
