Two weeks before fall break and Thanksgiving...
For some reason right now it feels like finals. I have a biology project due Thursday. I presented my speech on Japan's wartime atrocities in speech class (I always wanted to research this.)
Plus, I have a funeral for my grandfather on Saturday. (Pretty odd situation since I never knew him. I don't even remember his face.)
Also Sunday I'm going to the Squidworks meeting to do a Sketch Crawl.
This week is already turning out bad and will probably worsen until Sunday.
I want turkey really bad and I want to update my comic and blog really bad.
Thanks Enoch, Romy, and Bemmie for all of your comments. Sorry I couldn't reply immediately.
"Ephemeral comics" may be the official name of my new url. I picked "ephemeral" because my artwork is best in black and white with bits of color. Plus, charcoal is a crucial medium I will use in the future. This medium has an airy and frail quality that can really make comics fun. The name just sound so dramatic and real.
I recently saw this awesome book about Van Gogh's drawings. I was really surprised he sketches like he paints. The style is so beautiful, and the drawings have swirls and lines that seemingly map the feeling of a paintbrush. I tried this type of technique on a tree I was drawing, and it made it 50% better.
Here are some of his drawings:
"The Cypresses" just gave me chills. ^^
The Xiao Bao pictures will (cross your fingers) be put up this weekend.
hehe it's really funny. I never noticed how much he grew until my sister saw some baby guinea pigs. Xiao Bao is pretty huge now. I think he grew 2 inches. He can almost get out of the gate I have o.0. Yet, he's still just as adorable when I first got him.
Wow this is a really long post. Well, back to my art seminar paper...what a long week this is going to be and Enoch don't give up on your website!! :D
