Back in school

I've been to all the classes I'm going to take this semester.

Styles and Concepts is an unknown, I don't know Mrs. Wong, and the projects aren't really something I feel excited about. She has a horrible reputation, but so does Mr. King. We shall see.

I got Bs last semester in color concept and advanced structural, it would be nice to see better grades but I suspect I will have similar grades this semester.

Not worried about electronic illustration or Psych of development.

A little concerned with all the presentations we'll be doing in copy writing, but I should pull through.

Figure drawing should be good, again in the A or B range.

So far I've done better on Spring semester than I have in Fall. Coincidence?

Finally, Here's a plug to the Brickfish competition, in which my photo was turned without my asking. Since I can't edit the photo, I guess I'm stuck with it rotated counter clock wise ><

Random ideas on the 166T Dumont-New York

Marine Life: SpongeBob SquarePants and friends as USMC Marines.
Spongebob manning an aircraft carriers anti-aircraft guns, firing at diving kamikaze pilots, while Patrick loads and Mr. Krabs commands.
SpongeBob and pals on a patrol bob in a Vietnamese Jungle.

A whole fucking series.

Ach Shelo: Hebrew for "his brother," a typical way in which one IDF soldier would call another soldier. Another might be "Dod Sheli" or "my uncle."

I wanted to draw Israeli soldiers the way I remember seeing them. Sleeping on a crowded train, or trying to hitch a ride, their shirts pulled out of their pants (both are offenses)
