I got a new job. Er. Well, a second job. I teach art here www.artisourpassion.com/
My first day is tomorrow, and I am really super stoked about it :)

As for my own artwork, I am getting quite a few things together. Getting back into painting traditionally mainly due to my computer being....uuh... stupid. Particularly slow. Rapidly challenged. In other words, can barely load up MS Paint, let alone the internet, and therefore needs GREAT TIME AND LAGGING to get photoshop to work decently. Hopefully I can set up a different computer to help fix this issue soon. In the meantime, I am going to go through what I have ready, what I have to do, and what I need to practice, and I am going to hop to it! Jump straight in! GUNG HO PEOPLE. GUNG FUCKIN' HO.

Goodness gracious what a mess. Who left all this crap here? Well, I suppose it's about time i cleaned up and got started up again isn't it? I'm not going to lie. I have simply just been negligent and havent really done too much art. But all that is going to change, and this time i mean it. I know this is just text but i am saying this with such a feverish need to paint right now.

From the bottom of my heart, i am posting again. There will be a few changes around here. Gunna update my portfolio.

Here we go.
  • Listening to: Temper Traps
Omigosh an update!! Yeah. I am dead. but I will rise now and then to feed your little minds. ...and feed my ego. Been doing that a lot recently and i gotta say, it feels good.

Anywho. Been doing a bit of expirementation, and I have some commission stuff that I will start posting up, along with some Cross Water doodles. Not all of them of course, gotta save -something- for whatever special goodies that "iconnoyoucantmesswithme: may or may not be doing. We'll see. Until that point, there is a nice colored pic I did to get a better grasp on Bryant, and copic markers.

I've noticed that most of the stuff i have up here is pretty out dated. I will start a pinge of updates. Just keep in mind that my scanner is CRAP. I will save your minds and not post phone-photos anymore though. ....cause....it's so...ghettoo...

je n'ete reconais pas.
Life is filled with disappointments. Currently mine has a nice, caramelized stress topping to go with it. Part of me wants to grab a beer, take a step back, slight grin, nice breeze, maybe a sigh or two. You know, real comfortable, and watch the rest of me crash and burn like a NASCAR driver.


I don't know why I'm telling you this.

My plate is slowly emptying out. This is a relieving feeling. I can't wait for the big sigh a the end of it all.

With any luck, I will have a scanner or a camera soon so I can get you guys some better quality images, because these all suck.

Looking at my gallery, I see it is time for some major updating. With school officially out this leaves me available for more hours at work, so I hope to have these goodies soon. I am geting all my shit together for applications this week though.

meh. I should go sleep.

ps. I will add more pics soon.

Some art. A little. My Drawing Comp teacher has a good chunk of my good stuff, and my other good stuff looks like crap when having a photo taken by my phone or my teeny tiny little sad excuse for a scanner.

So I apologize for the lack of good quality in this gallery. Cause I know, I'm awful. Just ask :iconnoyoucantmesswithme: He knows. Oh how he knows. But mostly, ask how excited he is to work with this terrible person on our new project.

Why do I bring it up?

Because arts. I have posted some. Just fer you buggers. There will be more. Again though, I feel that this project really deserves some good quality and I will work on getting a hold of a good scanner. Even if it means dragging my ass to FedEx/Kinkos all the time.

More art to come in the coming weeks as I get ready for college stuffs, and other such things.

I did not see you there. You kinda snuck up on me. got me a little frightened. But that's ok baby, I still love you.

So today my heart broke a little. But then it got all fixed again. I visited my high school art teacher today, and she had out a record player and a stack of vinyls. As I was about to stick one on a girl from the club that was going on in the classroom asks what "a-side B-side" meant on the records. So I explain that it is the same as on a cassette, simply the next set of songs.

and then she answers with a question that lead into an entire conversation that through me into the darkest depths of despair at the realizationt hat I, am getting old. She asks:

"What is a cassette?"

"It's like a vhs but for music and it is double sided."

"VHS?"

*points to vhs in classroom"

"OH! The chunky things! OH WAIT Cassettes I have heard of those! Those are reaally oold. but what are these?"

insert the continued slow crashing of glass to represent my heart

"v-vinyls. Records"

This went on for a little while, ansd I came to wonder how she could possibly not know these things. Being in highschool and growing up in the nineties, you'd think that there would be enough time to be introduced to these things via the media. Photos, movies, friggin, EVERYTHING references these wonderful inventions at some point.

And it occurred to me she was only three years younger than me.

And then it occured to me that I have never heard a record player.

I spent the rest of my visit playing Beatles, The Who, No Doubt, and some random current band. Adhesive applied. Love reaquired. Band-aid effective. Mind. Blown.

I want one.

Desperatelty.

I have come to the conclusion that I am not going to continue Juno anymore. I know this is the second time I have done this with a comic (...fourth actually but the others were just me bing bored and in middle school. so they dont count. because i say so.)
But I find that I have lost the motivation for it, becuase it is al going towards something much. much. bigger. and better written. Because I am not writing it. an actual writer is. His name is Awesome McCoolname. aka my best friend, :iconnoyoucantmesswithme:

The end of another project is nigh as well. as in, within the next couple of hours i will be OFFICIALLY finished with a project I've been doing on contract for a long long time. Leaving room for Cross Water. Which is the title of the collab I am doing with Awesome McCoolname.

more to come.
