Better things

Part of the way through an underpainting of a poster for our exhibition in March. I'm trying out two new techniques with this one. Firstly I'm drawing differently... more like putting down paint and then "sculpting" the forms out of it. It's very sloppy but I don't find it difficult to keep track. Then I'm using the two window technique. Basically I have a second window of the image, that I can paint into or more importantly, use to check the image from afar to tell how it's looking. Both lots of fun and things are getting better all round.

I met a girl recently... and she's super cute :)

Cold January

No change in the relationship issue. Maybe it's my turn to speak now. Not looking forward to the outcome, it doesn't feel like I'll hear good news... It will have to wait until grey/purple of February though.

Christmas sketches

Some sketches I did over Christmas to amuse myself when not going crazy with Thesis work.
The first one's a bit emo. But hey, I'm not having a great time at the moment so I'm gonna allow myself this indulgence.

"Failure meant a stripping away of the inessential. I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was, and began to direct all my energy to finishing the only work that mattered to me. Had I really succeeded at anything else, I might never have found the determination to succeed in the one area where I truly belonged. I was set free, because my greatest fear had been realized, and I was still alive, and I still had a daughter whom I adored, and I had an old typewriter, and a big idea. And so rock bottom became a solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life."
