Sweetness. Fo Shizzle

There is a very good reason I have not posted recently. Skiing in Korea with my girlfriend's family has kept me. That alone sounds plausible enough to me. Being the first vacation I have ever taken, I have had probably too much fun, and am now due for some painting. Some of the highlights of the trip are here though. I am currently staying with her family in Singapore, which is about eighty degrees warmer than the Northeast U.S. Ohio/Pennsylvania that I know. I am loving it, though slightly feverish. Excuse me, while I sip on some freshly squeezed orange juice.

Winter Rush

Spending a week for Thanksgiving not in school would normally enable a student to catch up on sleep, spend time relaxing, and enjoy pastimes. Not the case this time. Twelve hours of sleep each night, eating out every meal, watching a dozen movies, and drawing. Life was excruciating. I don't know how I pulled through.

But seriously, the gluttonous amount of down time that occurred last week will surely keep me up for several nights this week for finals. My hard copy portfolio is being put together currently, more additions to the website are under way, and I am working a illustration for Society of Illustrators before the deadline. CCAD does prepare its students well for creating more than 24 hours each day, though, so I'll go ahead and begin practicing the time-suspention rituals. One more week, and still have to prepare for a trip to Singapore.

Web Ready is operational now, with much of my current work present. So far, watercolor consumes much of the pages. The 'other work' section requires 'other work', as I will add sketches, ideas, and other images of that nature.

Working with html and Dreamweaver for the past few weeks has made me fully understand the necessity for web designers; migraines are the least of a web developer's worries when compiling lots of data and imagery for the web. Design, navigation, connectivity, and other overlooked features like rollovers and spacing are massive components not to be trifled with. The smallest of errors is readily present to visitors; website creators deserve much more credit. My hat goes off to them.

First off

As a necessity- this is a blog, of course- I submit this as the first entry of hopefully a decently voluminous amount of entries in the future. It's been about fifteen minutes since I've opened it, and in that time I've decided to entertain a quarter life crisis. The trophy wife doesn't come yet though. I think I'll write and illustrate a book.

By the way, a website will be up soon showcasing some of the art I've made. Check it out if you love life.
