Wish it could all go away...

I saw someone whom I haven't seen in a long just reminded me how much I wish I much I wish I could accomplish...I know I am suppose to appreciate the things I have in my life and that there are people worse off than myself. But everyone deserves to vent and exude hurt. I feel like I am going no in the basement with nothing but dreams of success. I hope I wake up one day and it all goes away...or not wake up at all.

New low...

   Looks like I won't be able to join others this fall semester. Financial aid decided not to look my way this time. I don't know what to say or think honestly. Along with being unemployed, this new situation allows me more time to the canvas and sketchbook...but it gives me an empty feeling. I don't like not having any direction. It aggravates me and makes me question what and why I am here in the first place.
   I wonder if its me, but lately it feels like my closest friends have decreased their attempts in contacting me. I mean the usual people I speak to. Maybe its all the free time I have now, but it almost feels as if I am the one making more an attempt in communication than any of them. Which makes me sad. Maybe they're busy or perhaps I did something to offend. Hopefully its not that they stopped caring. Because I can't afford the alcohol that follows that if it were true.
   I guess Blogger, you and I will be much more acquainted; along with anyone else reading.

Next on the menu....

      I sketched out a few more ideas...but i feel or fear a dry spell of ideas coming. So i need to turn to an original work of art for inspiration..I think the late Audrey Hepburn will suffice. Hope everyone has a great mothers day weekend. Thank you to all the moms out there and moms to be.
   Here are some of the updates that are going on in the studio. Take care yall.

One down, many to go...

      Finally finished with the first piece...having a sense of direction is worth more than people think. It's the same with getting a good nights sleep. It's worth more than money can buy.
     Went to A.C. to see some Paramore awesomeness. I think my crush on Hayley Nicole Willaims, just like the other guys, has increased. I've never seen such energy from a performer. But then again I don't go to as many concerts as I want. But Hayley and the rest of her male crew were off the top awesome. I can't emphasize enough.
      After the witnessing of that performance and demonstration of unabashed expression, I was inspired to even further pursue my passions and just keep on moving forward with my art. I have nothing to lose anymore...except my sanity...but a lot of people would agree with me when I saw...a sane artist isn't an artist just yet. But I'm pretty sure I'm a little nutty so far.
      Met an awesome lady online named Regina. She has an uber sense of Japanese pop style and has a great glasses festish. Like many other great women i know, she loves food too. I realized Im a foodie and I love it.
      On that note...I went to 3 different buffets in one weekend...I feel massive. LOL. I think a little jogging is in order. I'll probably feel better when after I exude a couple of pints of sweat. Im still going for the half marathon. No matter what Im going to finish and hopefully enjoy the sites of Boston.
    Nothing really changed since the last update...had an awesome time with the guys and my niece and fell back in love with Paramore. Particularly a red-haired 21 year old from Nashville, Tennessee. (and i think i like red-heads even if they just dye their hair) Any who....heres completed first piece. I usually name them when I have a few more done.. so "untitled" is the fitting for now.

In chrono order.

 "untitled" 2010

Art Run...

    I feel like Im going through something that needs to be seen through...I cant stop this feeling of wanting to be better at this craft...I just need to improve as well. Ive been bombarding my eyes with images from james jean and audrey kawasaki...( probably my two favorite artist of all time...other than Alphonse Mucha and Monet ). I want to be as good as them so badly...or even showing signs of skills nearly as good as them. Im desperate.
    I had an art supply run and a couple of hours to myself to think and sketch..Every time I have time alone...the moment reminds me that this decision of creating image and colors as a lifestyle and career is one I made whole its honestly one of the only things Im somewhat talented in..Math and sports are definitely out the door..
    Speaking of ankle is taking a small vacation from the exertions of sports activities..I twisted it again in the reaction to stepping onto a piece of glass...-__-  Iam more concernicus about my ankle and the amount of times Ive sprained it..rather than the small piercing wound at the bottom of my foot.
....I have sprained my ankle a total of 5 times now. -__-

...Im attempting a mix media for my next piece...probably watercolor, acrylic, and marker..the piece thats almost complete is not exactly up to my wished standards. ..but its a start from a long hiatus of painting.

Ill be in my basement if anyone needs me. ^___^

..heres the first piece so far..say 40% done.

Hommmmmme finallly...

     Last minute Virginia is always fun. Dania was a freaking handful as usual...its astounding how smart she gets within a few months between visiting her.Also how much of a smart ass she learned to be hehe I wonder where she got it....she's lucky she's cute. Heh.
     My brother and Ate' Fe's new house is pretty awesome... they're asking for a really long painting for their new big living room...I have no clue where to start..but i really want to make them something...they deserve it. New painting...I've been sketching a few ideas lately for the new series..I gotta settle down and scan a few just to put them up..
    Also have been looking in craigslist lately for a more art-related employment status...I found a few..*crosses fingers* hope they bite..
 ...also saw this on and made me laugh a lot.   : D

A friend of Sam's just asked me to design a tattoo for him...a fluer de lis crossed with 2 filipino blades and his initials...hmmmm projects are a commin..
Tennis and cuban food : )** Also gotta finish those shoes real in today today. -__-

the first step is a doozy . .

lay out so far...untitled new series.

Late Nite Inspirations . . .

Hello Readers of the first entry...I appreciate you already.
Its funny how all my best inspirations and intentions seem to seep into me into the ungodly hours of the late night. I finally found the internal nudge and push I needed to start this...I realized making one of these "blogs" is almost no different than artists in history did with their personal notebooks journals and sketchbooks...except Im alive and this is intentionally public..
       I started something in the last few weeks...I started doing something for myself and for my personal growth as a potential artist...its been a long moment since I began painting for me again..
Its almost scary...Im on my own in one making their mark in the world should be. I feel like Im just coming out of a coma or waking up from a deep dream. I dreamed of things my hands would create..(my left hand really..)..I woke up.
Having forgotten most of the dreams..Im going to try and find them and put them a whole again.
Wish me luck...its not even funny how much I will need it. *thumbs up*
