Look at These Googlies!

Someone is putting googly eyes all over campus! Who is this begoogling culprit? Anyone with information regarding the Serial Googler should contact the Kenyon Thrill or apprehend them yourself. We are unsure whether this is a group google or an individual effort but the more I look around campus, the more I find these little plastic eyeballs staring back at me! Happy finals week. The buildings of Kenyon are watching.

Ideas I Gave My Roommate for Her Stop-Motion Animation Projects

Spoiler Alert: She didn’t take any of them! Not out of lack of love or trust, but just because they fell short of her vision, artistically speaking. Stop-motion animation is, perhaps, one of the most difficult artistic crafts in the movie and art-making game, which is why I am so utterly impressed that some of my fellow compatriots are making fantastic feature short films from what we know as the cradle of civilization, Gambier, OH. How these studio art kids find artistic (divine?) inspiration in this tiny town is frankly beyond me. So of course, I gotta take some type of crack at it! God, this might be for a pretty niche audience but I think it’s working. Continue reading

The Crap in our Refrigerators: Illustrated

A Kenyon student emerges from their final class of the day and heads to their dorm. It’s 4:00 pm and the comfort of their bed is as enticing as a thick cut of meatloaf slathered in ketchup*. That sweet bliss of a peaceful dorm room is at their finger tips as they turn the handle of their door. However, upon entry, the student knows something is wrong; there is an odor in the room. Now, this odor isn’t a familiar odor. It isn’t the dank smell of the hallway. It isn’t the stale beer of the stairwell. It isn’t the abandoned slice of pizza from an all-campus that has been sitting on the water fountain for 3 days. What could it be? The student strides over to the mini fridge in the corner of their room and flings the door open.

 

* if you do not find this image enticing find me in person and we will talk. Peirce meatloaf is a not so hidden gem. Ketchup is the caviar of the masses.

I Got Hypnotized by Kenyon’s Beauty So I Drew it Blind

I Got Hypnotized by Kenyon’s Beauty So I Drew it Blind

Kenyon College is a picturesque campus. The gothic architecture, the sprawling lawns, the lush trees; all of these things make up the campus’s sheer, unadulterated beauty. Seriously, the drone can confirm. But what if we became too entranced by the beauty of Kenyon? What if the beauty pulled us in and fixed us to stare at the underside of Pore’s butt cheek for eternity? Continue reading
