Daniel is now a quarter of a century old. For his birthday he wanted me to make a rice crispy treat cake in the shape of a sphere. He is very creative. So I tried my best to create his idea. I think I was successful. I used cocoa crispys for my center then capn' crunch and rice crispys for the outer layer. It was a total of 4 batches of rice crispy treats. That is a total of 24 cups of cereal and 16 cups of mini marshmallows. yikes.
This is my BFA project. It is all about creating and why we do it. It was highly influenced by a talk given by Dieter F. Uchtdorf called Happiness, Your Heritage. I interviewed nine people that are all different ages and create different things. I designed a book with the talk and interviews in it. For the display I pulled images and quotes from the book and placed them in picture frames I found at thrift stores that I painted. It was a lot of work and lots of fun. More pictures to follow.

The word intricate made me think of machinery and gears. Then I thought of the term gear heads meaning-A person who is interested in machines and mechanical objects such as cars and motorcycles. I have five brothers and they are all big gear heads. I created a repeating gear pattern and overlaid it on the drawing of my adorable brothers.

To illustrate the word instinct I used sea turtles. Right after they hatch out of their eggs they V-line it for the water. Then when they mature and go to lay their own eggs, they return to the exact same spot where they were hatched. I was reminiscing about the cute elephant pattern I did earlier this semester and wanted to take another shot at it, but with sea turtles.
