Possible postcard?
One of the benefits of working in what I like to work in (digital, watercolor) is that I can start something and it can end up in a portfolio later that day. Doesn't quite work the same with oil paints. I have always felt that oil painting is something I should keep for my own work, and not something I would want to work in professionally. Maybe time will change that, but I doubt it.

I'm submitting for Hallmark's workshops tomorrow. From what I've heard, they're changing a lot and heading more in the direction I'd wanted to go anyway (less bunny-esque, more idealike). I think I would be happy working there, so long as they don't ask for anything with pudge and bunnies in the same sentence.

More later


a few new sketches

and watercolor. Working on Rives is like working on paper towels, I'm not sure if I like it yet. Andrew Wright suggested I soak the paper, I think I'll try that.
This semester is out to get me, it seems.



Mine was nice thanks. Here's some stuff from over my Minnesota venture.

Adam's Gazebo

Adam's friend Adam

Volker & Volker & little Volker

Attila owns a shop that sells really beautiful Turkish rugs. Adam used to work for him, so we paid him a visit and did some paintings for him

This was one of my little paintings. We drank lots of tea and got a tour of the area

We drove home from Minnesota, I did some drawings of the wussy hills of Wussconsion

The drive back from Minnesota was LOADS OF FUN withMatt, Adam, and me in Adam's ford escort with 2 guitars and no less than 47 suitcases. This was drawn pretty early on in the trip while spirits were still high.

I am excited about this semester, but I am still trying to get used to the sleep schedule. Comics class with Thiel, more Prattwerk, and Megacon are all things I am looking forward to. Also, our apartment is all blogatized, now that Trish, Sarah Caterisano, and Sarah Watts are in the blog updating kind of mood.
Pan's Labyrinth comes out friday im excited
