Some cool stuff i've found

Hi! I realise I haven't blogged in AGES so I'm going to start again by telling you all about some artists that I completely admire!
Yu Matsuoka
Yu Matsuoka is Japanese and has lived in france and belgium for almost ten years, She says that she likes to express herself through art and uses canvas, oil colour, many different sketchbooks but she also likes to use markers.
The work below is marker on paper and I love them both because there is no 'subject', you don't have to understand what they mean or are about you just accept and perceive them. Her work is very smooth and continuous, you see it and know instantly that you like it, they don't have to be real or substantial, they are just decorous and commendable.

My stamp

Today I experimented with stamps and created this:
Then I got a board and chose a colour ink, the. I rolled the ink over the stamp and pressed it onto pieces of paper, these are the results (I used different inks and colours):

I like the effect of the dark purple above because its a dark colour and it makes the white bits stand out.

A 3D paper me!

Today I made a 3D picture of me out of paper! Here it is:

Hello everyone…

Hi everyone I just wanted to say that the reason I haven't been blogging recently is because I had an operation yesterday on my eye, I'll probably be back to regular activities by sometime next week. Sorry :(

My stamps

Again I have been making stamps from pieces of polystyrene but I have tried to make my design a little more complex. 
I have drawn out this design on to polystyrene:
These are the effects:
My favourite is the dark greenish colour because more of the stamp is shown.

Salvador Dali the persistence of memory

I have used watercolour to copy Salvador Dali's the persistence of memory. Here it is:

I have also copied a print by the artist Ruscha called 'noise':

Art academy

For the next 3 Thursdays me and my sister are going to art academy, it's basically a child minder club kind of thing where we focus on different artists and works, yesterday me and my sister made these: 
They came from the idea of Monet's water lilies, mine is the one on the right.
We also spend time at the beginning doing doodles and this is a picture of something that my sister drew:
I also did one:

Nature in art

Today me and sister went to Nature in art to take a course in stamping.
We did two different techniques, the first one we did was where we drew a design based on nature (i did a shell) onto a block  of wood and covered it in glue and the we got some string and cut it into bits and stuck it over the pencil lines, personally when I did I it it didn't really work very well:
(It's covered in paint btw)
The other technique we did was when we drew a design with a marker onto some polystyrene and then we got a sharp pencil and carved into the lines, this is what my stamp looked like:
(It's covered in orange paint)
Then we gathered both stamps and chose a coloured ink or poster paint, we then poured a pea size amount onto a board and rolled it out with some rollers, then we rolled over the stamps until they were covered  in ink and placed it onto a piece of card and rolled over the top, we then pulled away the stamp and this was what I was left with:

I didn't think that I used enough paint so I had some other go's experimenting with different colour card and paint:

It's a very fun and easy to do method, why don't you have a go or comment below?

My animation

This week I have been working on an animation of the frog prince, these are the figures I have created:

My gran mentioned biorhythms to me yesterday so I decided to do some further research on what they really were.
This is what I found out:
a biorhythm is a recurring cycle in the physiology or functioning of an organism, such as the daily cycle of sleeping and walking or in other words to properly define the matter a cyclic pattern of physical, emotional and intellectual activity said to occur in the life of a person.
The history of Biorhythms
In the beginning Dr Wilhelm Fliess noticed identical rhythms in the case
histories of his patients. He observed active and passive phases in the
physical, emotional and intellectual/mental aspects of humans. Out of these observations he derived the principle of the Biorhythms: The phsical curve with it's cycle of 23 day, the emotional curve with its cycle of 28 days and the intellectual/mental curve with its cycle of 33 days.
In other words a Biorhythm is one of three cyclic rhythms that are supposed to govern govern behaviour. The theory is usually treated as harmless entertainment, in the sane league as horoscopes and therefore attracts little controversy.
I calculated my Biorhythms on internet by typing the day, month and year of my birth.
My physical cycle is: 82
my emotional cycle is: -90
my intellectual cycle: 69
this is my Biorhythm graph:
(It also calculated my intuition, spiritual, awareness and aesthetic)

I don't really understand how the internet can calculate biorhythms because surely they're how you feel so I created my own biorhythm chart:
