Moving Home and More Life Drawings

August 3, 2009

So today I’ve told work I’m leaving on the 21st. I was planning on not telling them until next week, but on friday at the end of the day, my boss was talking about me leaving for school and was asking me questions about it. I decided not to ruin his weekend and just tell him today instead.

Anyways, I haven’t posted any more life drawings since a couple weeks ago. It’s a little hard because the paper I use is larger than my scanner, and it is also inside a hard-bound sketch book.

I’ll post them chronologically from top down. I think I’ve gotten better since the batch below don’t you?

To Add or Not to Add…

March 16, 2009

Well I couldn’t think of a real good topic for a second post quite yet, so this is going to be pretty boring. I know no one has read my blog yet at this point, which is fine considering it’s been up for like a day. I haven’t really even told anyone about it. Stealthily put the link up on my various profiles. I’m sure someone will stubmble upon it at some point.

Anyways, I was pondering whether or not I wanted to add another page. It would be somewhat of a portolio, but not formal or anything. Just some drawings or pictures that I might want to share. But at the same time, I’ve got my DeviantART page linked over on the side, so having a gallery on here would be kind of redundant. Eh, I might as well anyways. It never hurts to give myself a little more exposure.

It’s settled then! A new page will be added….at some point. I need to gather a few pictures that I think might be cool to put up here, and find a decent free host to put them up on. I guess for the time being I can use the wordpress space, but I want to have a separate place still. Oh well, I’m off to watch the latest episode of Jon and Kate plus 8. Too bad Jon and Kate aren’t really together anymore. Or so I’ve heard.

Update: The Gallery is now active

The View From Down Here

March 16, 2009

Well, I guess that’s an appropriate title for the introduction post. Not only is it the title, and the overall theme (if this had to have one) of this blog, but I’m also kind of short, and local to Southern California.

I’m a total nerd and actually thought of all of those meanings before I decided on a name. I’m just a total nerd anyways. I spent my middle-school and high school days watching Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and playing Magic Cards. I won’t go into too much detail about myself, I’ll leave that for me to fill out in theĀ ‘who am i?’ section.

So I’ve basically started this as a way to write, and vent, and just as a way to get my voice out there I guess. Since I’ve gotten out of college I have been working as a low-level, boring, cubicle-imprisoned employee at a moderately failing skin care / cosmetics company. I am totally out of my element, and want out as soon as I can. I want to go back to school to get a B.F.A. in Media Art/Animation, so hopefully I can tell you how that journey goes, starting from the ground up (see, there’s another one of those word plays on the title). But overall, this blog is just a place for me to write about anything I want.

That’s all I have for now. Peace.
