THE ROUNDUP

Can you put on a hat and spin around in a chair three times and come up with mystical, artistic ideas?

Jeff Bussey ’11 might be able to.

Regardless of hat wearing skills and chair spinning abilities, the talented senior can to draw extremely well and create lyrical music with his band.

Bussey started his journey to being artistically creative freshman year, when he took the mandatory Intro to Fine Arts class. After that, he took both Beginning and Advanced Drawing with Mrs. Deb Cronin.

For his junior year, Bussey ventured into AP Studio Art, and he is taking it again this year as a senior.

Bussey has made some interesting art pieces, to say the least.

“At the end of sophomore year, my final project was a moustache machine,” Bussey said. “I don’t know if I really like it … but I like the concept of it. I might go back and work on it later. I would draw out the pieces and cut and paste them onto wood. It looked like a machine. It was probably my favorite.”

Usually, Bussey has no set way of coming up with ideas such as a moustache machine.

“I’d like to say that I put on a hat and spin around three times, but most ideas come to me when I’m in the car or late at night,” Bussey said. “If I have an idea, I’ll write it down and finish it later, but if I sit down just to draw, I usually don’t come up with anything.”
