news and the like...

Mon Mar 17, 2008, 9:26 PM

i've been absent for awhile, in an artistic sense, and should be returning to it soon...had a bit of a creative breakdown but only hope to grow the stronger for it, hopefully develop a bit more since i find myself stuck at a point of stagnation that's startling for the amount of growing i still have and want to do...

so i've started a bit of a sketchbook over at…
and i'll be forcing myself to sketch close to one picture a day(starting tomorrow), which will be posted there among other things, probably many a sketchjam with radioblur and better sketches will continue to be posted here...

otherwise, i keep falling in and out of interest with the 100 but i do want to continue it, so it will be picking up again sometime as i'm tragically inability to obtain adobe illustrator has slowed my pursuit of t-shirt designing, but perhaps i will be able to find another way...i've got some album art to finish and i need to start on a picture for the character engine, but other than that, i'm going to try to focus on my own works a bit more, do some studies, try and build where i haven't ventured in all too long, so we'll see what heads clogged with ideas just bounding t get out, i just hope they work...
hoping to start shyboy soon too, since my wonderful writer will soon return...

other than art, focusing on ways to get to san francisco, which will hopefully be easier than my worries think it will...and the bass no longer kills my fingers to play, so there's hope yet!

i was sick, but now i'm better, and there's work to be done...

I'm really glad that you're getting back into the swing of things. Sometimes it just takes a little break to feel better.

I hope to see more of yer stuff up soon, I'm very excited. I find it so inspiring just to look at the amazing work you create. :D
Stop having breakdowns when I am too far away to know about or offer support for! Feel better. We shall grab coffee within, like, four days.

well, i think it's over now...hoping...though i did have three death anxiety attacks last weekend for some reason...which was lame but so it goes...
but i can't wait for you to get back! so many things to show you, and i'm so excited to hear about everything! also, during my illness i discovered soy chai = delicious, possibly even moreso than milk chai...but hopefully i won't be sick by the time you're back, as random coughing just isn't cool...
the excitement!

yaaaaaaaay you come back soon!!!!! yummy yum. you're a phantastic artist- i'm so glad you're gonna keep posting. no pressure, o/c, but YAY!
welcome back...glad to read that your creative stirrings are working once again :D

so you've decided on San Francisco Art Institute I presume? how did your application with Art Center College of Design out in Pasadena turn out, if I may ask? honestly, with your skill levels, I would think you'd be a shoo-in at just about any place you apply.

actually the academy of art university in san francisco, as there's no way i could afford the art institute, and i don't even think they offer illustration...
and there was a big messup with my not being able to make the pasadena deadline, so i decided to save the money and pass, and perhaps try and transfer next year, if i want to...we'll see how it goes...
whatever you decide on, good luck and keep us updated if you can.

I've read that with ACCD you can alternate terms (semesters) when you have the opportunity to take classes for one term and work full time at a design firm for another term to meet/lessen financial obligations - does take longer to graduate of course, but the professional work experience, contacts, and financial help all would make it seem a worthwhile option. LOL, talking with you has made ACCD a pretty tempting option - not sure about living in Los Angeles though.

that does sound pretty cool, and terribly useful...but again, i'm also not so sure about living by LA, for though pasadena is distanced, it's really not by much...and i've never heard anything all that great about LA, whereas i do adore san francisco...
never been to LA, but I did live for a short while in San Francisco a long time ago - still remember the hills. I agree - given a choice between LA and San Francisco, I'd take the latter in a heartbeat. either way, the cost of living in California remains ridiculously high.
