Skills Competition

This is a medal design I did for school. The whole class did this and a lapel pin design, then the professors chose the ten best to send on to a big contest for the Ontario Technological Skills Competition (OTSC). Both my pin and medal got top ten in the class, my medal got a 10/10. This past Friday I got the call from my professor that I had won! So I got a $250 check and an invitation to come to the closing ceremonies and get a medal (created from my own design) for myself! Pretty exciting!!! It still doesn't seem real though! Although this $250 bucks does help!
I will upload some more projects later! Thank you for looking!

School MishMash

Hello again!
I am mass uploading a bunch of projects here so bear with me :) I will start at the top and work down:
1. Snowboard Design, We had to design a snowboard on any theme at all. I actually didn't do a horse for once! check out my friend's design: clicky it is pretty awesome :) I got a 9/10 on my snowboard.
2. Product Illustration, the project was to take a photo of a mouse (my brother's in this case) and recreate it in photoshop. I got a 10/10 on this project.
3-5. Beer Design, I created a logo, ad, box, and bottle design for this project. This is just the bottle design and logo (logo is just the front of the bottle). I STILL haven't gotten a mark on this.
That is all for now! I am going to bed now, it is late, whoops. I will upload more tomorrow!

Robot Project

finished product!
poster designed for a movie starring the robot

This was a project for school. We had to create a robot using household materials, write up some instructions on how to build it, and then design a movie poster with our robot as the villain/monster. I REALLY enjoyed this project! It was a blast to do! The robot is mainly made out of a cardboard box and lots of duct tape. Feel free to build your own using my instructions!

The same old church as the happy accident
Inside the war museum, can not wait to go back there!

Here is the second part of our vacation at my Aunt's house. I had a field day with my camera! I kept stopping in the middle of the road to shoot a picture. Sometimes it feels like I am annoying people when I go out with my camera, I tend to move rather slowly! I am going to have to start going to places by myself!
I hope we get some snow soon around here! It has just been raining a lot, and I want to get out and take some photos but it is too wet! Hopefully soon it will snow, I want snow for Christmas! It has been so wet and mild here, it doesn't feel like Christmas at all, more like October or something!
This is the last of the photos for now! I will upload some school projects next!
Thank you for looking!

p.s. tell me what you think of the new header!

Hello everyone!
I am finally done most of school and now I have time to finally upload some new stuff! I should make a school project dump soon. For now here are a bunch of pictures from our not-so-recent-anymore vacation at my aunt's house. This is the first of 2 parts. These are mostly taken in my Aunt's backyard or in the car on the way there. I had a lot of fun and took waaaaaaay too many pictures! As always click for bigger! My new camera shoots huge pictures! Keep your eyes open for more posts involving photos and schoolwork, and possibly a new header!

This post is just a bunch of random photos I have taken around my neighbourhood. I have about four posts worth of pictures at the moment, so keep an eye out for more posts! In and around schoolwork that is! Getting near the end of the year so we are getting more and more big projects! Some of them are fun, but some I kinda want to ignore and hope they go away!
Stay warm!

Hey all!
Here are some school projects from these past couple weeks. I am thinking about printing them out as stickers! I got a really good mark on the cuttlefish at the top, and the teacher already said that the zombies were really good, no mark on them yet though!
I am currently trying to come up with a new header, difficult to find the time!
Thank you for looking!

Happy Halloween!

Here are some photos from a fundraiser at a therapeutic riding school. The top photo is Toby, and the rest are of Chip with the Headless Horseman! It was a fun night, got to play with my camera in dark settings and paint a lot of faces!
I hope you enjoy the pictures! Enjoy your halloween and send me some candy!
