***I know what this was now- it was the final project, my favorite of all the ones we did. Mostly because of the illusion, this project was all about creating something that wasn’t there- or was there. I don’t know what veins or leaves means. This art professor was my favorite. This was fall semester 2011 first semester of college for me, and I had no idea what the hell I was doing. I didn’t realize how good this guy was until I was gone. Yeah, one of those shit scenarios.
