chalkboard drawing

I was recently commissioned to do a chalkboard drawing for Reed College Reunions. If you’re back at Reed, you can see this in Kaul Auditorium. For everybody else, here’s what it looks like:

It was a real treat to work on such a large scale. (Note: to cartoonists, anything bigger than a 3″ by 3″ square is considered large scale.) So as not to become overwhelmed, I made a small collage and printed it on a transparency. I then borrowed an overhead projector (which was covered in dust; no one uses these brilliant contraptions anymore apparently) to project the collage onto the chalkboard. The chalk drawing was done with sidewalk chalk and wet-erase chalk markers for the lettering.

Renn Fayre

At the end of the academic year, Reed holds a special campuswide celebration called Renn Fayre. Don’t mistake it for a Renaissance Fair. It is a recognition of the seniors who have submitted their thesis and who will be graduating in a few short weeks. This weekend is the biggest single event on the Reed calendar.

reed college on a sunny day

I’ve been taking iPhone pictures around campus for the past couple months. This may have been the second sunny day so far. At least I can’t be accused of false advertizing.

The most beautiful picture I’ve ever taken

Of all the photos I’ve taken at Reed, this is by far the most beautiful and breathtaking and I feel somewhat ashamed I hadn’t captured it yet.

Like Steven Spielberg and Schindler’s List, I had to wait until I honed my craft to take on a project of such importance and magnitude. Yesterday, a sunny spring day on campus, I felt my powers of photography had achieved their necessary peak. Thus I present the air intake for the basement level of Eliot Hall:
