As we move to the end of 2016 Cawd has been busy.
Inaugural Cawd Winter Scene Design Contest
We recently had an internal Cawd Winter Scene Design Contest where students did a winter sketch as their Design Homework. From there we scanned in the image and brought to Photoshop. We used our Wacom Tablets to colorize and ink the sketch, using different blending modes to get a stylistic look of color over lead. 5 students had their work selected to be printed, framed, and given to them as gifts. The winners of the inaugural 2016 Cawd Winter Scene Design contest were:

Cawd goes to see Rouge One | A Star Wars Story
What has turned into a holiday tradition, Cawd went to the theaters this week to check out the new developments in CGI in the Star Wars franchise. Good stuff. A visually beautiful movie, well done, and I think a really nice transition to the start of “A New Hope”.
Fitting – RIP Carrie Fischer.
We also scored high enough on our last quiz that Cawd earned a game day.
There were some pretty good games of Jenga
Some pretty tall towers built before the inevitable crash.
Which reminded me of…
Notice how the creature on the right goes for the Cheez-It’s immediately after total destruction.
Here is a photo of myself playing Josh in Madden where he just pick-6’ed me. You can see the juxtaposition of glee on his face, and sense then anger radiating through my soul.
Lucy’s House Pet Food Drive
We took part in a pet food drive, with winners getting an ice cream party. We won. Obviously.
The last hour or so right before vacation Cawd was able to go to the rink with Mr. Moore for some ice time.
Happy Holidays everyone!
Stay safe, enjoy the break, don’t forget your Design Homework, and we will see you in 2017!
