Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

Creative Prompt #3 – Found under the trapdoor

The third of Lee Sargent’s weekly “creative prompts” was “Found Under the Trapdoor”. This time I decided I wanted to try get Illustrator to actually do artwork rather than graphic design. In the past I’ve used it to produce technical graphics for work, since it is a vector-based design tool, but I’ve never had the time to get to know how to do more freehand work. Well, I didn’t really have time this week, either, and so I still have very little idea what I’m doing with it. To be fair, I’m not totally unhappy with the end result, and I think I managed to progress through the changes in viewing angle reasonably successfully.

Well, what else would you have under a trapdoor?

[Production notes: initial pencil sketch, scanned into Illustrator CC which I can’t drive, and inked using a Wacom tablet which I also can’t drive, with the whole situation exacerbated by the fact that I failed kindergarten colouring-in.]
