Told you so!


"I didn't know I was looking for you until I found you."

I froze momentarily, letting a lazy analysis of the sentence roll through my mind until the words didn't matter anymore - until nothing else mattered, only the feel of his arms and the beat of his heart.

Start of a new semester

Well, I'm back to school now! Just got through the third day.
It's been good so far... things only sucked because of the pain that still lingers in my mouth from the wisdom teeth surgery.

Classes-wise, things are GREAT!
On Mondays and Wednesdays I have Foundation Drawing, Fundamentals of Chinese, and Asian Art Early Sacred Culture. Yea, something art, something Asian, then something art AND Asian :P Drawing class is gonna be fun... hell, it already IS fun. Today wa the first day we actually did stuff... we did blind contour drawings of our hands, and now we're working on lineart of our hands holding dead leaves. As excited as I am for this class, I'm also pretty nervous... I could tell all of the projects she assigned us are going to take a VERY long time, and honestly, I'm afraid of my own impatience. I'm afraid that I'll get frustrated with myself and just quit - or worse - half-ass the rest of the way. Well... here's to hoping I get through this, aye?

Since I'm only going to post finished pieces in my deviantArt gallery, I'll be posting some of the other things like sketches and blind contour drawings (those things are hilarious) here. Here's to hoping I don't slack on that! XD

Tuesdays and Thursdays I have Astronomy and Philosophy. Tuesdays I have my Astronomy lab, which leaves a nice 3-hour gap on Thursdays - with which I'll fill with friendy hangout time, of course.

I'm pretty confident that the rest of this semester will go well.
In five more weeks I'll have fully recovered, and I'll start taking capoeira again.
I have a 100-page sketchbook that I'm going to fill up by drawing in it every single day.
My hope is that, when anybody looks through the finished product, they'll be able to tell me how much I improved.

Cheers!

Start a Band!

hehehe... so I came across this little meme somewhere (I think it was LiveJournal), and posted it to my Myspace and Facebook. I enjoyed it so much I decided to do it MANY times, and, well.... here are the results of that XD

I'll first post the rules, then my results... you may also do this if you wish ;D


1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first article title on the page is the name of your band.


2.
http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.


3.
http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/
The third picture, no
matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4.Use your graphics program of choice to throw them together, and post the result as a comment in this post. Also, pass it along in your own journal because it's more amusing that way.

Adieu, 2007!

Et salut, 2008!

Goodness, behold my first sleepless night of the year.
I can't sleep, so I'm up sketching my next piece.
I'm actually going to paint over it with acrylics. I've painted with acrylics before, but not on Bristol board (which is what I'm sketching on now). I think this will look better on it than just a stretched canvas.

I always seem to work better when insomnia strikes.
Anybody else feel that? Yes?
Oh, I just noticed his chin's too small.
Welp, gotta get back to the drawing board - ha, ha, ha.

Have a great new year, everybody!

Maybe I'll put it up here when I'm done, or at least the sketch.
