Dark Knight

I am currently nursing a twitching eye and severe loopyness due to my excursion to see Batman at the IMAX at 3:15 this morning...then sleeping for an hour before going to work at the children's theatre. then right over to work in the service bureau...i have half an hour left in here...and man i feel like crying or throwing up or just having a complete meltdown from lack of sleep and proper nourishment.

...but holy shit was worth every dollar, every second, every little bit.

this is how i felt the whole time i was watching it:

worth every second.

best movie ever. hands down. fucking brilliant.

this is sink or swim, a weird-ass ark story...and this is the part where they dump the piano overboard so they dont sink...


jack went up that beanstock and found some half ogre half giant couple that has marital issues...apparently mr. giant is cheating on the mrs with his gold egg laying chicken.

oh and that table cloth...not magic after all.

weird bald man in his skivvies

sooo this is something i have been working on for the past couple weeks...this dude showed up in my sketchbook and i liked the way his head was shaped, so i kept drawing him...and he has evolved into something of a friend during finals...where ever he is, whatever he is doing he seems to have lost something, and is very exposed (but stylish) in his colorful childlike underwear...i was thinking about him a lot today and i never think about it before i start drawing him, it always just grows from my fingertips to the paper...

in addition to creating this fabulous blog, i need a more professional way of displaying my work to the general public...and although this is no means a finished product (it's bloody iWeb for flips sake), it is a jumping off point for me, and it just feels good to see it live and in the wonderful world of cyberspace!

so please please visit it and come back here and comment if you should feel so inclined!

thank you much!

oh what a beautiful morning!

i love my walk to school every day...especially when i have to open the service bureau because then the sun is just rising and my day starts off right. it is wonderful, the birds were chirping, it wasnt too cold, and i had to walk slow today because there were frozen puddles the whole 7 blocks...a downright enjoyable morning...if i do say so myself!

why i cant wait until summer

i was struck by a terrifying thought as i walked into school this morning at 8 am.
this is the last time i see the sun until tomorrow morning... that is something out of a horror movie, something bringing about thoughts of a post apocalyptic world, or one where we are all forced underground all day... no wonder art students have a depressing fascination with zombies.
i cannot wait until i can see the sun all day if i want to.

free as a bird.

Monday, March 3, 2008 this is a blog...

so apparently the thing to do when you go to art school is create a blog...i feel very hip and with the times right now...and slightly like i am making a diary that everyone can read...interesting.
i always wish that people could read my mind anyway, so this is sort of like that i guess? haha

on a side note, since im spilling my thoughts to the internet world, bethy is a very happy girl right now....i dont know how in depth people get with their blogs, so i will just leave it at that, and if you know me at all you will be able to name the two reasons why i am ridiculously happy at this moment in time. 
well this seems like a good post on my blog...hahah the word blog makes me laugh....ok im done.
