Don't fretter. Blogload 2 will be around shortly.

I recently distributed some pet drawings/paintings. I wish I had properly cataloged them. Maybe the people I gave them to would do me a favor and properly scan them for me! (

Ten minutes is all you need.

For "Decorating the Deans' Offices".

When anyone says "ten minutes," they usually mean ten or fifteen. I know, when I pick a specific person to go out or go to school or to open the door. I had to wait fifteen to twenty minutes.

That doesn't happen anymore, but it was cold when I didn't have a car, waiting by the door.

I really should try to finish writing other things, but I'm blurbing here because I can, and I'm trying to keep up my promise to publish something at least once a week here (on my blog which ports to Facebook) and Area221. I'll put links up at the end.

While I'm plugging, The Instigator magazine's first issue will be printed, I believe, next week. It's a really interesting start-up mag in a time when editorials are dropping like flies. So look out for this where ever you think you may find magazines. Or Keith Chiappone.

The Instigator -

Area 221 -

I'll be back next week with Blogload 2! (I hope).

They say you always remember your first time...

I apologize for the blank I posted last month. False alarm.

I am trying to get back into routine here, there and upside down. I bought a planner some weeks ago to try and keep my lives and heart-pieces organized. Believing and using some sort of life-scheduler was never something I did: partly because you had to manage the planner to manage your life. Essentially, to me, this meant even more work. Consulting your little green (or black) book to make sure things get done on time.

Target ran out of black books. So, I'm using a lime-green planner.

Fall 2009 was pretty rough for me, as most of the year was for a lot of people, but I'm pretty sure the state of the economy matches my experience with Color Theory. I'm not going to complain about it, since everyone who has ever endured the NJCU Art Course has probably heard many rants about the class' difficulty, pace, etc. Some people get color; some people don't.

I just need more time with it, apparently.

On to the show!

My first time I participated in Sketch Night @The Society of Illustrators in NY. It was a great experience: live music, bar, people and models to draw. You can't really ask for much more.

Speaking of more, it seems I spent more time drawing the model focused on these two pages from my landscape sketch book.

Perhaps, I gravitated towards the blonde model, as opposed to the brunette one, because her *ahem* breasts were offered more in terms of tonal value (or were they both blonde? I can't remember).


I'll be back next week.
