Journal Entry: Wed Oct 26, 2011, 2:10 AM
Hello again... I'm back... no idea how frequent these visits will be as I'm very busy but let's see, as I've neglected this page for long enough! I messed up a bit over summer with my head going a bit odd, and didn't hand some uni stuff in on time... Luckily the only thing I have to resit is Art History, have to do another 20 credits, and it's all split up over 2 years. So I am here a year longer, but I have less to do (80 a year not 120) so I'm actually quite happy about that, means I shouldn't get stressed, close up and decide to be a banker again.
I've got a few little pies going on, I done some illustrations for a book (will put them up when it's out) with more to follow, I'm working on a Fantasy boardgame, paid jobness has increased my hours.. and let me do some photography for them (need to work out copyright issues there, would love to share them), I'm starting some voluntary work.. and yeah try not to fail uni. It's all groovy though. I'm happy.
I came back to here as.....something big has happened.....
I bought a graphics tablet.
A good one.
All my moaning about the digital age I think I was just jealous... I'm going to give this a go, I've decided I prefer illustration art to fine art, and if there's any hope of me becoming an illustrator then this is the way to go. Even if I'm still working in a mix of traditionally and digitally. Also got hold of good proper photoshop. None of these have arrived yet, but I'm currently stalking the postman.
I'm very excited. It means I can draw things like those zombie chaps above. I don't have to piss around with scanners or huge working spaces. This could be a huge huge turning point.. but let's just see what happens...
