Mail Box and Portrait

My professor was kind enough to email this picture to me of a mailbox I did for my 3d design class. The whole thing is made of card stock, and my intentions were to make it out of only 2 sheets and then some extras for the little bits on the bottom left. A few miss calculations in my blueprints put a damper on that though. The top right is intended for regular mail, the bottom right is for packages, and the left is for junk mail! Recycle that junk!

I also participated in a portrait swap, hosted by the portrait party!
I love the idea of swapping portaits with strangers. It's better than feeling awkward about the possibility of drawing an unflattering picture of someone you know while you make them hold still for you. =PI swapped with Arindam here. I hope I can get in the habit of portrait drawing with the people who frequent the portrait party. It's fun and good practice.
His portait of me is here.

In other news, my brother moved out. He's actually in the same apartment complex but right across the way. This means I get his room! I'm so excited about having my own room. It's been ages. I've moved most of my stuff in already, but I need to invest in some roomwares, and then decorate!
I've got some plans for homemade decorations and I'm totally stoked (did I just say stoked? I MUST be excited).
I'll just have to start pinching those pennies even harder for the rent now though. It's all good.
