I can draw too.
Congrats on your accomplishment.. If you drew this you’re clearly talented!
Since the tortoise represents patients and wisdom, keep in mind that while you learn some stuff? College sorta works to teach you that you don’t actually know anything. hah or at least thats what it did to me 🙂
Almost 12.5% done with college. I don’t feel educated yet. Must learn more.
Wow! these are fantastic. Thought I would post them on Tort time in order to promote the tortoise aspect of the work. As an art and architecture enthusiast, on the other hand, I love these beyond the inclusion of my favorite animals. And well… I think they are pretty clever and well done.
I did these about a year ago for class and I’m still more proud of them then I am of probably any of my other pieces. They’re based on the fact that some animals, like turtles and snails, carry their homes around on their backs. It seemed clever at the time.
We at Tort-Time would like to commend @JoshMalina for including our favorite reptile in this magnificent work of art. Clearly this raises the value of the piece to priceless but since this goes to a good cause you should definitely buy it on Ebay for a whole lotta money
