I have alot to say but there is no guarentee that it will be in an organized manor
As far as artistic/dA updates go, the main one is that I am now working with Illustrator! Im very very excited about this, however its taking me longer to get any kind of grasp on the program then I thought it would. Ive mainly been out looking at tutorials, then doing what comes to mind in the program itself. However with that comes the fact that I havnt had much time to put towards it, so Im just mainly making time when possible. My prints subscription here on dA has ran out, and Im going to leave it like that for a little while Im thinking. The next couple of pieces I submit will either be tag walls, tutorials, or experimental Illustrator images anyways. I am planning on making another Jedrek calendar this year for the holidays though so I figure having a prints sub by November would be a smart idea. Speaking of tags though, that is what Ive been focusing on mainly for the last couple of months now. With this new computer I felt compeled to make a nice large piece in photoshop, which was accomplished with Twilight Utopia, but to get a fresh approach on things Im wanting to get back to what I consider to be a good "muse" art for me; sig art.
Lately though I have been feeling very very uninspired. There are some solid ideas I have, but still no idea on how to follow through with them and make them a reality, so that gets me down. Ive been looking at alot of vetor art here on dA trying to get a feel for what I could do with Illustrator, but it kinda just gets me down as well. So much of it looks way out of my league, and Im aware that Im just starting out with the program, but of course with where I am right now theres that feeling of "will I ever be able to do something like that?" Im not into the whole labeling of people and their attitudes on life, but I guess for lack of a better explination, Ive been feeling "emo" about my art lately.
In real life Ive been spending the past week and a half watching the olympics, they are very entertaining. My dad was out here staying with us for 2 weeks which was a bit tedious. I wont get into details, cause then this journal would really go on and on
And now with Jedrek being 2 years old, he is talking more and more each day, being all the more active, and has started to take up doodling with me which is quite nice!
I think thats about it, supper is almost ready. Its pork and green beans for us tonight! *yum*
I kinda feel like poo, what with little to none energy and an everlasting headache.
Thanks for stopping by peoples!!

Rembrants, Gainsboroughs, Van Goghs as well as most early canvas
paintings were principally painted on hemp linen.
