Hey, wow, well that was a semester.
So amped to be out though, so I can’t complain. I’ve been putting off making this post since I like to make them on days when I’m feeling happy or optimistic. But this semester took loads out of me. The tuesday I came back to providence was way perfect since it was the happiest I’ve been in a long time, but oops now its
sunday monday! Haha
But I’m feeling pretty good now. It’s nice being around family again, the weathers good, we have hulu and a bunch of movies. And I can smooch my little sister whenever I want. Life could be worse.
But this year could have gone alot better. Especially when it came to school, I could have done lots better. I guess from all of the negatives this semester there have been lots of positives. Like while I procrastinated, I drew lots and lots which was the best. Things from watching, things from/for class, things from life, all that good stuff. I feel like I still need to push myself out of this comfort zone I’m in right now and some stuff I’m not use to drawing.
(Before all those, there’s left over summer doodles that I forgot to put up double oops)
And that’s the last of them! They’re way small since there are some many recent drawings to put up. As time goes on tonight, my mood keeps getting better? Rad, but also I’m really excited to see all of this up finally! So here are some drawings from October to end of november/early december. Here we go!
I participated in my first 24 Hour Comics day and it was pretty good. And thanks to the best comics coach/one of the best friends I’ve ever made, I got 24 penciled pages done! It was three stories about all of theses characters above. Might go back to it one day???
Anyway here’s some stuff!
And here’s some stuff from my sequential imagery final project that never got finished the way I had hope. It was inspired by Princess Mononoke, so there are some drawings I made while watching the film. Another thing I was hoping to work on over the break but I’m still pretty sad whenever I think about it so I might take some time away from it. Maybe.
And some other stuff
Awesome! Well I guess this also counts as an end of the year post since I’m hoping to make more stuff over the break. Also this computer’s fan is having some problems so we can’t have it on for too long without over-heating…so I guess it’s a blessing in disguise to spend some time away from the internet. I’m hoping I’ll find a scanner at some library down here. More than likely I’ll wait for when I head back to Hampshire.
Anyway, the new year is around the corner! I didn’t really have too many resolutions for last year except do better in school, have my making process be more organic-feeling and make something everyday. And even though I don’t have 365 drawings exactly and I was pretty lame in some of my classes, I most definitively made a lot more than I expected and I feel alot better making it. I’ve met lots of people and lost some good friends, learned alot about myself and what I want to do.
So I guess for ’12, excited for more drawing, more learning, more trying, all that good stuff. But maybe focusing more on stories since I feel that I’m more comfortable drawing but when it comes to putting them sequentially, they fall a bit flat. So more comics! And just being more positive but also more realistic with my goals?
Those seem like pretty ok resolutions to me.
And to anyone who comes by this corner of the internet, happy holidays and have a happy and safe new year.
