So, I’m pretty happy these days. I don’t wanna toot my own horn here, but my boyfriend is pretty cool. Got me a new desk, cause after we moved I haven’t had a proper one to work with. Now I do. It’s actually better than my last one, which I loved.
It’s spacious, with a lot of room for all my pencils, paints and whatnot.
Anyway, just a short post on that. More works are coming. I’m just really happy. 🙂
There’s a saying in my family, though, well, I am probably the only one using it, so ‘family’ is a stretch, but it sounds better than, ‘Oh, I have a saying, it goes…something something wise sage’.
It goes; “The beavers are restless tonight.” And it means that things are amiss, and you should be on your guard. Especially for rodents, if you live in the city.
This is all just bull. Tho I do use the above line now and then. Mostly in my writing. I do have more rodents though. Told ya’ll they’d crop up everywhere.
Anyway, writing is still good. I actually passed 100k (103 now but who’s counting) not too long ago. That felt like quite the landmark. In fact, one of the plot lines I began WAY at the start of the book now came back full circle just as I imagined it. Overjoyed at that and how it turned out. Proud even.
So, I’ve been working on this new painting for a while, and all in all I guess I’m satisfied with it. I have this thing where I’ll make stuff, be really glad with the progress and how it looks. and then when I actually finish it I don’t like it that much anymore.
People tell me diffrent tho, so that’s good. Christian is always impressed, particulary with this one, but doesn’t he always have to be impressed haha
I do like to title my works, and I usually know that title early on, for there’s mostly something that sparks these ideas for images I get, but this one in particular just sort of came out of nowhere. In any case, this one is titled ‘Don’t know where I belong‘.
Yeah, so…there it is. Don’t really have much else to add. So, you know, just gaze upon my artistic wonders! :O
Also, Christian went by a week without updating the blog. Dishonorable! For shame!
That title makes me feel like I’m about to put on a powerpoint presentation for the yearly fiscal earnings of some low level paperclip packaging company. Thankfully I’m not though. And hopefully this’ll be somewhat more interesting.
And, well, writing’s been easier lately. There was some times last fall when I was able to produce 10k of writing in a week. Good writing, that I liked. I’m not there again now, but I’m in the vicinity of it. So that’s really good.
A few days ago I had the goal of crossing 90k into my first draft. Suddenly I was sitting at almost 95k. It felt good. And it was writing I liked, that I could really get behind.
And you’ll float too! *insert eerie, creepy laugh*
Found myself pretty bored today, so I decided to do a quick painting of the awesome Pennywise the Dancing Clown, from Stephen King’s IT. Feels weird to introduce this, cause doesn’t everyone know this character??
Anyhow, spent a few hours on it, and just on a normal sketchpad, A3 sized, using acrylic paint. I love Pennywise, and so does Christian, so it was fun to do. Nice to finish something that quickly for once, despite this only being something short to work on to pass the time.
Doesn’t that new remake look terrible? Christian is actually keeping an open mind on it. What a loser. He could join the Loser’s Club…
Alright, so I’m finding myself watching Wolfgang Petersen’s great epic Troy, and it is a clear indication of what’s going on: Summer is in full swing. Soon I’ll start listening to Will Smith’s ‘Summertime’, and then I’ll complete the ritual by watching Jaws.
Then I’ll complain about the heat, and my face will implode due to allergies. (which have already begun, trust me)
Anyway, on the topic of Troy; I like this film. It’s certainly a favorite, though it’s always been mired with dirt from the critics. Which I don’t understand. The main issues they had with it was the dismissal of the god’s presence. And, honestly, anything other than what they did would have been stupid, I really don’t get the critic’s point of view here. They went with a realistic, gritty adaption here, rather than some overblown spectable of the gods.
