Andy Andy the Astronaut by nove Andy Andy the Astronaut by nove
Andy, Andy the tiny astronaut man,
Going planet to planet with absolutely no plan.
Always wanting to play hero,
He came up with nothing but Euro,
Which was of absolutely no use to him.
But of course tha'ts okay, he may use it someday,
But I doubt it will be anytime soon.

Andy, Andy the tiny astronaut man,
Escaping from fires, now that's a sound plan!
Always trying to prove, he's a tough little dude,
But he's somehow always on bottom.
But hell if I care though,
He'll still be my hero,
That tiny, astronaut, man.

A speed paint to see if I could make a helmet, turned into a balloon with a face.
The balloon trailed to a piece of ground where a orange lite was to carry a little passenger, which quickly turned to fire.
The string to the balloon was the only escape...


For a little man Andy, our hero.

Please excuse my horrible writing at 3 in the morning. I thought it was cute however.


I liked the speed paint enough to decide...I want this as a portfolio piece in my AP breadth portfolio for my studio art class.

This is from Febraury, it's probably already graded. So how did it go?

The piece here was actually one of the most liked in my print of the show :] I got $40 for a print of it too that is now in a teacher's front entryway in Settle :D

The show went splendid and I enjoyed it. :D

Haha ah! My bad then :3
Uh Sophomore year I got a 5 but Junior year I got a 4. I think it was because I was actually one or two pieces short of my NEED total but my body of work was good.
