When I did this cartoon more than a year ago, I was playing with names for it. Teshan, one of my Flickr friends suggested the name “Swinging Sammies”. Nice!

Thursdays are the start of the weekend. ENJOY!

I am trying to start back doing my sketches, cartoons, etc. as best as I can. I did this painting in Spring of last year on the topic of favelas in Brazil, but never used it. I thought I would post it for you today.

One a Day (OAD)!

Today the blizzard, Nemo is passing through Massachusetts. School is closed and I am hunkered down with good food, and work to do.

Above is a photo of the snow as it piles up on our window sill. I love to eat snow, the fluffy fresh, new kind. Delicious!

Later on the evening the winds got stronger and the height of the snow kept rising. Let’s see what tomorrow brings.

Do something creative today!

I took the photo during one of my classes. I LOVE pens and am very particular about them. I can’t remember that this pen was special in any way, but, it was shiny and the composition of it laying on the paper looked beautiful through my camera lens.

Wii

On Friday & Saturday we are expecting a blizzard. An email was sent out by MIT that night notifying us that school would be closed tomorrow (Friday). Of course I was happy! This led to a great night of hanging out with friends, playing Wii, impromptu karoake, and plans for the impending snow. From Michael Jackson, to bowling, to cricket, to boxing, what a great night! I chose this photo because it reminds me of surprise days-off!

Have a great week!

One a Day (OAD)!

Choosing ONE Photo a Day can be a challenge. It requires special discipline. Sometimes you could barely find one photo, and other times, there are too many. Do I choose a photo that reminds me of a happy moment? Or one that shows the result of my hard work? Or of someone famous? Or of the way a particular object was captured? Or a special moment in time? Or do I choose a photo that has a good story attached to it?… How do I choose? I’ll have to figure something out.

In the meantime, should I post more than ONE photo, I will explain why I did. Deal?

Digitally Fabricated Sphere

After doing some reading this morning I had a meeting. After that I went to the Fab Lab to cut this sphere that my professor and I were working on last semester. We are testing another method that didn’t work too well last semester. The photo above is one I took of inside the structure of the sphere, without the surface cells. I think it’s very appealing. Digital Fabrication is a lot of work, but rewarding. Seeing something you’ve made, something materialized, is very powerful, and rewarding. Why does ‘making’ give us so much satisfaction? It’s a question that continues to poke at me and will in my continued research.
Why I choose this photo – It is a physical manifestation of hard work, proof of work.

MIT School Ring

My second photo is of my MIT GradRat (school ring). I decided to purchase one last semester. For me it is a symbol of achievement and of belonging to a community. My friend Jenine and I went to pick up our rings, and I was surprisingly excited by it! We grinned, and placed each other’s ring on the other one’s finger. I have no clue why, but it felt appropriate, as though we were acknowledging a job well done to the other. It was a great moment.
Why I choose this photo –  It symbolizes and gives me the feeling of accomplishment shared by my friend and I.

Have a great one!
