"Horizon"
I haven’t painted with real paint since middle school, but this was a lot of fun. I had no idea what I was going to paint, and I only had three colors: blue, white, and orange. I just sort of made it up as I went along, and seeing as I miss the ocean I suppose this is the first thing that my hand came up with.

"Circuitry"
I go to a school that has a large number of deaf students, which means they use ASL to communicate, which requires their hands. It got me thinking about how when we lose a sense it seems one of the first things we learn to do is use our hands to make up for it.
Can’t hear or talk? Use your hands to communicate with sign language. Can’t see? Use your hands to feel your way.
Our hands are important. Built with a lot of internal circuitry that we don’t see, moving all the parts, sending all the signals to the right places.

"Promise"
Last week I watched all of United States of Tara (in case you couldn’t tell from a few of my posts) and in an episode one of the characters, Kate, said something to the effect of “everyone’s a taker, everything’s a thing”. It made me realize that I never want to be a taker, I never want to be the person that only sees possessions and a person as an avenue to get them. That’s not me. So I decided to write it on my wall as a promise to myself and others.
Plus, Takers got a 27% on Rotten Tomatoes, so I definitely don’t want to roll with the likes of them.

"I’m not like everybody else"
A fact that I am very proud of. I come home everyday and I look around my apartment, at the assortment of things that grace my shelves, my desk, my room, and the slowly growing stuff that graces my wall. It’s all a part of me, a part of my journey to find that missing piece.
I am Marcus, the one and only Archymedius. There’s no one else like me in the world, just so you know.

Stage 2 of Fisher’s upgrade. Now that I look at it I’m not too crazy about the red shirt.

"Not my words"
This is the first piece of art that has hit my wall that is not my own, but was written for me by dokamiyumekui, one of my dearest friends (it’s also on my Tumblr already). As anyone who follows me knows I am not good with words, thankfully my friend Amy has all the words in the world to describe me and herself.
My project is all about finding out who I am, finding the missing pieces that have escaped me, find something that is missing. My friends are a part of who I am, and now it shows.

"Confession"
It’s true, I wish I had more musical talent. Not necessarily on an instrument, but maybe just being able to generate some tunes on a computer or something. A lot of the time when I listen to music I end up altering it a bit with slightly different beats in my head…or out loud. Yeah, I like to sing and dance a lot, especially in my kitchen.

"Private Eye"
Some people see the world through the lens of a camera, and I wouldn’t mind doing that myself. I really want to get into photography, and I can honestly say I don’t know much more than point and shoot. I’ve got this nice Canon that I don’t even know all of the functionality or the limits to.
So much to learn, and so little time.

"StarPortal"
So here’s me playing with two awesome things: Stargate and Portal. I took the Portal logo and changed out the portal for a Stargate. I think it works pretty well honestly. Sadly, the Stargate I drew doesn’t actually have all 39 symbols on it, but I think it comes pretty close.
Stargate (SG-1, Atlantis, and Universe) was something that always got me through rough times, so it needed to end up on the wall at some point. And Portal is just awesome (though I haven’t played the second one yet, I know I know).
