If it takes imagaination to make, it should be classed as art.

Art is transferring a vision in your head to a medium that others can see, hear, touch, taste or feel.

That means if you are one of those people that can really cook, IMHO, you are making art.

Painting, music, drawing, dance and sculpture seem to get all the all the glory but that is very limiting.  Art can be completely functional, its ability to function is the art.

A sling can be two pieces of string with a bit of leather, the art comes in when it is twirled around and used to toss things.  We aren't even going to get into the braided ones and the multicolored braided and twined ones.  Which is an art that is used to make art...

Below are some pictures of my favorite works.

A bit of a story behind this one, the teacher said to make a animal wind chime, like a fish or something so most people did just that, made a fish, but I decided to make a dragon. The head is the best part of the peice to me, and when I brought it home right when I stepped in my room it fell apart as I had to tie 2 songs together to hold it together since I made one too short. Still need to re string it, but thankfully my floors are carpeted and nothing broke.

And here’s the last thing I made. I used a leaf repeatedly to make the design. Also, all the little veins and such of the leaf didn’t all transfer so I had to go over them all, and improvise in spots that they didn’t transfer at all.

Beautiful work Drakolith.

Looking at that Dragon I would say your name fits you well.

Hmm didn't manage to find anything recent but strangely did find a sketchbook from years ago. That sort of tells me I need to get off my butt and actually draw again.

Here's a few:

And a strarting figure I never finished:

Thanks Morphy!

Huh, what a coincidence, I had no idea Drakolith had something to do with dragons, I thought I made the name up. It’s a combination of my middle name, Drake, and monolith.

Very nice work Morphy! Out of curiosity, about how long would it take you on average to do one of those?

Those are on a fairly small sketchbook so not too long. Maybe an hour or  bit longer for a finished picture. I sketched at work so the book is full of half finished pictures.

By the way you could probably sell that leaf sculpture for good money. It looks very professional.

Wow, that’s really impressive. You should really do more, you have a real talent there, drawing something like that so quick, even if it is just on a small area.

Thank you. Probably, but I wouldn’t sell it. Though, once I get a job and become stable income wise with some money to spend, I definitely plan on buying/making myself a kiln and making ceramics as a hobby, probably sell some.
