I bring you arts

As promised, here's a few other watercolour sketches I did for class:

This is probably my favourite of the group

Spring break is nearing the end, sadly, and Monday I have to get up bright and early to find a class taking up a mystery classroom. I have no idea where this class is, it didn't say what room on my schedule and the teacher hasn't replied to my email yet >.< grand.

I also have a lovely new Samsung LCD HDTV on its way. Because I am nothing if not a techno-geek.

Upcoming Quarter

Ugh, spring break came and went way to fast.

I wish I had gotten more artwork done, or really, more in general. I suppose it was nice to have an entire week with no commitments, other than family ones.

At least I was able to spend some good quality time with the man I love. I am actually looking forward to this upcoming quarter though. I'll be taking classes that I enjoy and getting out at early times. I've always been a believer in taking classes earlier in the day so I have most of it free to work rather than wait until later. I'm not a morning person by any means, but it's still preferable to have an 8a.m. class over an 8p.m.

I hope there aren't any serious problems this quarter.

Catching up

Jeez, it's been a really long time since I posted >.<

Sorry about that, getting caught up in school work does not make for a viable excuse.

It's hard to believe that another quarter is about to end, I'm that much closer to graduating and having absolutely no idea what I'll do with my life. Awesome!

Actually, I have been thinking about the future and I really don't know what I'll do. I understand that so much success in the comics industry falls on self-promotion and I'm a little afraid that I won't be inspired enough to create fantastic pieces that will get me a job or two. Really, the driving motivation behind every single piece I do in school is the hope of getting a good enough grade, and maybe a portfolio worthy piece.

I'm afraid I'll be lost without the professors, but on the other hand, I've been drawing without guidance for so long that it probably won't make much of a difference. At least, that's all I can really hope for.

I may post an onslaught of work in the coming weeks, as there is only one more week left in the quarter and then I'll have a lovely break to sit around and finally get back into playing The Witcher. So here are a few watercolour sketch pieces to pass the time:

It's not that I haven't been busy, far from it, I just haven't been scanning stuff in nearly as often as I should. I've also been busy with a small web design project:

Manassas Chiropractic and Rehab: Spinal Rejuvenation

This little site is all about an alternative therapy for back pain. You don't have to get surgery for your herniated disc, you can try using the Pettibon System available at Dr. Steve Lininger's Manassas, VA office.

So, there you go. I am well and alive, or at least alive.

Play like a Star!

The recent Academy Awards were kind of....boring. I'm not really one to get into the Oscars, but I know a lot of people felt the same way. Perhaps it was the fact that the writers didn't have as much time to work on the show as previous years. Perhaps Hollywood is actually getting tired of honoring itself in the guise of a little golden man. Who knows why it wasn't the same entertaining 3 hours that many have come to expect, but I do know this:

Probably the best part of the show was seeing Jon Stewart play Wii Tennis with another actress. I'd love to show you the clip, but it appears that posting it on YouTube violates the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences copyright. So you'll just have to imagine him running back and forth, flinging his Wii remote as he looks at a gigantic (movie theatre sized)screen. What does this mean?

It means the Wii is finally the mainstream console it always wanted to be. Nintendo is ridiculously smart in their adversing, promising this is the game console for all ages and skills to love. Which is true, it is a great family game console, that's why it can be a challenge to own one.

However, to those familiar with Charter High-Speed internet, or just those willing to enter, you can now win a Wii.

All you have to do is register and you could be on your way to playing Wii tennis in the comfort of your own home. The winner will receive a Nintendo Wii Console, Wii Stand, 5 Sports games ( Boxing, Baseball, Tennis, Golf and bowling), 1 Remote Controller, 1 Nunchuk Controller, 1 Sensor Bar, 1 Wii AC Adapter, 1 Wii AV Cable.

You also have the chance to participate in Charter's Win High-Speed Internet for Life auction, where the winning bidder will get the fastest internet speed in their area for life, a cable modem and wireless router and free professional installation.

Even if you have no need for Charter internet, or you're not in the right area, the chance to win one of the most popular consoles of our time is pretty nice. Plus you can always pretend you're playing at the Oscars, with any number of celebrity as your opposition!
