Incomplete drawing and doodles.

Life and Such

It’s been a while since my last post… Almost two years! Eeeek!

So what have I been up to the past two years? Not much, honestly. I’m still working at Fred Meyer, in the Apparel Dept. I’m still going to school on and off and I will HOPEFULLY be done with my Associate’s degree by Spring of next year (I passed all my math classes! Phew!). I’ve also been drawing more than crafting lately. Mostly black and white sketches in ink.

My main computer broke down again, which is another reason I haven’t blogged much, though this happened more recently. I’m pretty bummed out about it but I haven’t done much to get it repaired. I need to check whether it’s just the power supply that shorted out during a power outage. That should be an easy fix, but if it’s something else, like the motherboard… Eeek. No bueno.

Last year we went to PAX (Penny Arcade Expo) with some friends from Grand Rapids, MI, and we cosplayed as The Scoobie Gang and as Steampunkers. We did it again this year at GenCon in Indiannapolis, IN, with the same friends and had lots of fun!

Those are all the major things I can think of. Oh, we also visited my family in Chicago this year, just before GenCon. I got to meet my two beautiful nieces who were born after I left Chicago five years ago.

This year has been pretty good so far. :)

New Sketch

Yet another new sketch I am working on. I am unsure how to finish it and whether I will add any color to it. I started with the eye and face area. My hair designs aren’t the best but hopefully this one comes out nicely. I think it has potential, I just have to actually COMPLETE it!

What do you think?

Inspired by VAST’s “One More Day”

I love this song! You can listen to it on YouTube. I first heard One More Day by VAST on Smallville’s last season finale. I believe this is also the first song I have heard from VAST.

The song is so beautiful that it inspired me enough to draw this:

It is just a simple sketch right now. The song is sung with so much emotion and sadness. I imagined what someone who listened to this song might feel. Actually, more like what it makes me feel. In a weird way it is also very soothing and comforting. It is telling me that even though I may not be o.k. right this moment that in the end everything will work out. 

Listen to the song. I recommend putting on headphones or blasting your speakers to filter out other sounds. What does it make you feel? Does it bring back any memories? Does it inspire you to do anything, and if so, what?

Note: I drew this in the dark! The only light I worked under was the glow from my computer screen.
