The Nine Faces of Dave
monochromatic sound paintings
So I found out today that I'm going to have to do additional
work for my yearbook spread, since I can't reuse people. Ah
well, there are more people to interview, and the digicam at
school is decent. That means I should be able to get some
good pictures tomorrow, with some interesting people.
I've been putting off my photography work, though now I have
an excuse for it: I can't find the damn print I'm using for
the project. My photo teacher might have hijacked my print;
I think it was in his office earlier today.
We're doing monochromatic paintings based on tracings from
enlarged wallet-size portraits. Problem is, the portraits
I've taken have mostly been shit, and my one good portrait
isn't really a satisfactory subject. I have something that
could work for it, but it most likely would not be all that
great. I was thinking a portrait of a friend of mine would
be good, if for no other reason than because I'd rather use
a picture of her than use any of my other portraits. There
are two problems with this approach: I don't know if I'll be
able to get a decent portrait in time to finish, and I'm not
sure whether she'd consent to being the subject.
I still haven't bought a sound card for the computer, but my
search continues every day on eBay. Some sound cards start
at ridiculously low bids (like one dollar), but by the time
the auction is near-end, the price is up around twenty-five
bucks or more. Couple that with shipping, and it's hardly
worth it. But I will find a deal, mark my words.
On the subject of money, for some reason, I've been buying
lunch at school lately. I don't know why, but it seems as
though my ability to repress hunger is fading away. Problem
is, buying lunch depletes my cash and puts pounds back on.
This is Dave, signing off.
