I stumbled upon this amazing artist, Noel Badges Pugh, on Tumblr. I find his work inspiring.

Another great artist I found, Kurt Pio. I love these diamonds. Something I wish I had thought of myself.

May Recap

1 Jun

– Got my hair done.
– Rode my bike at least once a week around Lake Montebello.
– Still painting things.
– Finally went to the doctor for the first time in forever.
– It rained all of May, almost.
– No AC in the house right now, so spent the last few days of May melting into a puddle.
– Played some WoW – Got into the beta.
– On the last day of May, which was yesterday, I drove to Michigan.

That’s pretty much it. Not a very good month for me, at least regarding my health. But I seem to be doing better now.

April Recap

5 May

I had originally written this out a few days ago but something happened and it didn’t post. Didn’t even save a draft. It was lame.

– Obsessed with chicken wings. Could not stop eating them for whatever reason. I normally don’t like these.

102 - Watercolor

– Got my first water color set.

– Acquired a bike rack for my car finally.

– Picked up some gouache paints and fell in love.

– Spent most nights awake and the days asleep.

This space is useless because I am afraid to say what I am really thinking/feeling. I can’t be me here or anywhere else on the internet. It is sad. ]:

Holy Cow! These birds & butterflies look so real, but they’re made of paper!

I’ve been drooling over this tool box. I think it would make the perfect pencil/art case instead of the one I carry now.

This week’s episode of Better Call Saul was one of my favorites.

Revisted the 90’s this week.. Groove in the Heart has been stuck in my head.

3/15 Contact Sheet

21 Feb

Week 3 of the semester is complete. Monday school was cancelled because of the snow. I was quite thankful for this. Wednesday & Friday I slept through my alarm and missed my English classes completely. Sucks, but I am sure I didn’t miss too much.

Thursday’s drawing class was ok, but man is it the longest 4.5 hours of my life. I had to draw hands for homework, I was quite pleased with how they turned out. It took foreverrrrr. Over two hours to draw four hands.

I am quickly learning that I really hate drawing. Ok I hate drawing stupid still life stuff and other things that I don’t really want to draw. Sadly, this class is a requirement. I’m glad the class is only once a week, makes it a little better when I think that I only have 12 more classes to attend. Just gotta power through it.

Saturday, I went to my b&w photography class, which doesn’t really seem like a class to me because its fun. We learned how to print stuff which was real cool. It took me 3 times before I got my contact sheet lined up right on the paper. I can’t wait to print out an actual photo next week. I would really like to set up my own darkroom in the basement one day. Film photography is so much more of an involved process. I feel like I am creating something rather than taking a million pictures and then uploading to my computer. I went out to collect more photos for my assignment after class and I really took my time and thought about the photo before I took the shot. I am pretty excited about this and can’t wait to see the results from yesterday’s outing.

Hope everyone had a solid weekend.
