I never knew what a rip-off Michael's art/craft supply store was!!!

As I mentioned Sunday, I went there to get uncut matte board. I exagerated when I said they had none. In fact the had a dozen sheets, one of each color. I needed 3 sheets of white. The lady told me they only have one and it's $13 and some cents a sheet. I thought nothing of the price till I bought some sheets at the P.S.U. book store yesterday.

I was asking one of my bosses, the artist one, and recommended Art Media or the P.S.U. Bookstore. As Art Media was two/three blocks from yestersday visit by Kerry and Dean, therefore lot's of people to annoy me, and I work on the P.S.U. campus, three blocks from the book store, I took the obvious choice. It was great! A wide selection. A 10% student discount. And three full sheets cost me a grand total of $14 and some cents.

Michaels, over $13 a sheet. PSU under $5 a sheet.

I think I know where I will be shopping in the future.

Plus, Michaels staff is old bitter women. PSU staff is cute 20-somethings who are actually eager to discuss and help you with your project. The icing on the cake.

Gay marriage, for the time being, is legal in MA.

I want to say "yea!!!" but there is one thing stopping me. There is an odd disparity in the cheering. I see a lot of my straight friends saying how great this is. But almost none of my gay friends have said anything one way or another. Perhaps they are waiting for the other shoe to drop. It's like the crickets going quiet before the storm, and has me worrying, asking, what's around the next corner.

My art book for class is done.

The title is "Facets of Personality". It's all bound using M3 high strength adhesive and a polyester/lycra cloth (I figure it stretchy so it will hold up petter to fondling.

The last picture is of my grandfather.

The other pictures I mentioned/linked in this post.

The picture of my grandfather works, but it's not what I was going for. I tried to seperate the color channels and do varying dergees of motion blur on each channel (red:60px, green:40px, blue:20px) to try to simulate the refraction of light. What I should have done in retrospect is used s consistant amount of motion blur, but them move each colr chanell slightly inline with the motion blur.

But all said and done, I think it still has a very good "looking through a crystal" feel.

Tomorrow I can see if the glue dried well enough, if not I will have to plug ugly fasteners (likely nuts and bolts) through the matte to get it to hold together.
