Honeycomb, wood, 15"x15"x22", 3D Design, Spring 2013
______This was my first project in 3D Design for the semester! It's essentially a big, wooden honeycomb structure, and to make it, I had to use a loud bunch of manly power tools. I had to miter pieces upon pieces of wood together to make a bunch of hexagons; then, to make the triangles, I had to cut pieces from wood on the bandsaw and sand them down on the wheel sander. With all this newfound knowledge of dudebro machinery, I could probably build a house. A really, really awful house. Or maybe just something that'd be a step up from my starving artist hobo box.
______My teacher was so lovely as to put this in a local art show displaying student work, so that was incredibly flattering! He described me as a hard worker and a badass, and I'm pretty sure that's one of the highest compliments a teacher can give you.
______He's a pretty rad teacher--just the other day, when I was showing him my design plans for the next project, he saw my Legend of Zelda wallpaper and said, "Wait, is that from Zelda?" and when I nodded a "yeah," he continued, "That's awesome. I thought I saw a rupee. Or a skulltula." So, besides being fellow geeks, I'm pretty sure we're going to be best friends.
