Mon ami Albert

Here’s a picture I drew of me hanging out with Albert (he’s a huge francophile so don’t pronounce that pesky end ‘t,’ s’il vous plaît), my Greater Accordionback Armadillo. Despite his shyness, he can’t help being quite loud, and as you’d expect we do get our fair share of noise complaints. Albert generally feels a little bad, but based on what we hear walking through the halls, we figure it’s an improvement over our neighbor’s usual music.

Also, I feel obligated to point out that I don’t actually play the banjo. Or rather, I learned one song, but I haven’t practiced in months so I’ve forgotten it. Fortunately it has a good accordion part! Though Albert is more of an Edith Piaf fan.

So far, this has been the prompt I’ve finished the earliest in the month (thanks to being intimidated by web design homework, yay!), which is fortunate because all this week I’ve been scrambling to get ready for this Thursday’s Be Honest, which is the Portland State design program’s annual portfolio showcase. It’s been a fun time of printing difficulties, having no time for schoolwork and feeling bad about the quality of my work, but hopefully it’ll be an opportunity to meet cool, inspiring people, or at the very least be more prepared for next year.

    Seriously though, it’s great. The complexity of the drawing goes well on the simple background texture/color, and the expression is *parfait* (not fruit dessert I mean). Good luck with your portfolio showcase, I’m sure it will be great!
