The good thing is, knowing I need to blog every day gets my brain going... thinking of content to put in it. Aside from a story I've been working on with my friend Brent (for nearly 3 years now!), I don't do a lot of creative writing... I used to; I should do some more eventually. The most natural things I think about when it comes to 'what should I put in my blog today' are:
- What should I draw for my blog today?
- Should I write about my day?
I would've finished it by tonight if I had more time... at times I get really insecure about my ability to crank out anything good in Photoshop, but when I actually get on a project, I'm on a roll! I can stay on it for hours just focusing on what I gotta do. Sometimes I feel like I have more control in digital media, and I do, and I like that, but I like the feel of traditional media better. I just have to get over making mistakes and such, that's a big obstacle for me in my art-making. It's also fun to take advantage of the fact that I'm on my PC laptop... it has the Adobe CS stuff. I switched to a black Macbook about a month back, and I totally love it (still getting used to it, though), but it doesn't have the Adobe CS on it. I'm planning on getting it soon though. Also, the reason why I'm not using my Mac is because I left the charger at my cousin Kelsey's house over the weekend. D'OH!
And now for the thanks portion?
I'd like to thank Brendel and Alex V... seeing Brendel get all excited about art in the way I used to be kind of got me going again, and Alex V totally inspired me to do the piece I'm doing now. I've known these guys since high school, and although I'm not in constant contact with them, they've always been really cool, and I'm glad to be talking to them more now. Thanks guys!
