I've decided to go back to college for a Associates in Web Design. I think this will be the fastest way to learn web design and improve my design skills as well. My goal is to have my website operational sometime soon. A job in the design field however is the main goal. Thank goodness for career centers at colleges. Woot!
I've made progress on my comic so if I can find some free time I'll start the rough version of the page layouts. Although between college, job hunting and commissions it looks like it will be difficult. But when has that ever stopped me?
Another birthday has come and gone. I'm currently working on some new art for a portfolio as well as several commissions for friends so hopefully I'll have something done by the end of the month. I watched one episode of soul eater today and I'm hooked so expect some fan art soon.
I had my Birthday this Monday and it was fun. I'm proud to say I finally have an ipod even if it is a shuffle. More work is one the way. I'm making some progress on my comic/ graphic novel and I have some new characters to post. I'll also be revamping my portfolio so I should have loads of new stuff posted here by the end of summer. Hurray for inspiration!
Sorry about the lack of updates. I am working on several projects right now that are eating up time for drawing such as finally creating a website. I'll post it as soon as its complete. Right now I'm going to go sit in the sun and enjoy this warm weather.
I recently attended Noh Con and it was a lot of fun. i didn't make much money but thats my fault for buying high quality paper and expecting college students to notice. But I met some really talented young artists and caught up with old friends. Now I am full of energy and ready to draw some more. yahoo!
Wow my last journal was from last year. A lot has happened since then such as I finally stopped trying to draw in a style. Most of my new stuff is mostly anatomy studies but I'll post it anyways as soon as possible.
As you can see I managed to squeeze in some time for a few drawings. As soon as I get a painting program I'll try to increase my work as well as the quality. I have several projects in the making here so once things get moving I'll have a lot of work to submit.
What an amazing year this has been! Graduation and a job! Plus getting my mac fixed has really boosted my hopes for next year. My main goal for 2006 is to get my jovb to be full-time job. Other goals include setting up my online portfolio and getting my rough comics cleaned up and posted on a website as well.
I also plan on being much better about posting on DA. I know I haven't been very good this year so I will try to post at least one sketch a week this coming year.
Huzah! I managed to get my mac to operate my mac for more than 5 minutes. However I dont see myself doing anything in photoshop until I fix my poor G5. But I'll keep submitting sketches until I its fixed.
Now that I found a style for my comic I'm going to be working nonstop to get them online. My deadline for the inked versions is late november and I want a few is color before the year ends. Here goes nothing!
I apoligize for my lack of new art. I'm running all over Rochester looking for a graphic design job and nothing has come up yet. I started working on some characters lately and I will hopefully have those up by the end of the week. Also I am currently working on a website to post my portfolio on so that I don't look like such a newbie. Afterall, I've been on DA for more than a year now.
Woot! No more teachers forever! Now it's time to enter the harsh reality that is life. I've started job searching around New York but its hard because usually the coolest places dont have websites. My senoir show went well and as soon as DeviantArt behaves I'll post the show and perhaps the original work if people want to read. I really feel different about my work after getting so many compliments at the closing. Plus the informational packet was a million times cooler when I printed it on this coated 80lb paper. I would run up to people at the show and say "feel the paper! Isn't that awesome!" LOL. I'm such a dork sometimes.
I apoligize for how long it takes for me to update this page. I'm real busy with classes and I finally made some time for my graphic design project which I will periodically post up here for advice. I'll also start posting my Illustration projects since it seems I have little to no time for personal projects.
