Dresden: Dec. 16 to Dec. 17

Nov. 13 to Nov. 19

          Yet another crazy week! In general I tried to cram as much studio time in as I could because 10 of my friends and I planned a weekend trip to Lugano, Switzerland, to see the American boarding school campus that our drawing professor designed!
