I haven't been on here in ages, but...a month ago I bought a ticket for the upcoming Faerieworlds festival on Sept 17th-19th. Unfortunately, I have just realized I will be unable to go (argh!), but I'd rather not waste the ticket, so...does anyone want to go and need a ticket?
I'm asking $80 for it because that's what I paid (I caught the early bird sale, which makes this even more bittersweet for me). If you're interested in going to hear some amazing bands, and hang out in the most wonderful atmosphere for a weekend...leave a comment or e-mail me at: email@example.com
Out of a strong need for some sort of critique group (because that's what I miss the most about not being in art college anymore), I created a Yahoo! group for Faery Artists. Now, I have NO clue what's going to happen, but if anyone is interested in joining in on the creative brainstorming that I'm hoping will take place in this group...please drop in for a visit :]
So, I've got two more classes and a paper before my graduation ceremony next Friday, but...I posted my website that I've been working on in web portfolio today and wanted to share it. I still have to fix a few little things (ie making the index page into the sitemap and the homepage the first thing you see when you click the link), but I still like it.
I'm still two months away from becoming a regular on EF (graduation approacheth), but after getting an e-mail from a friend (Hi Jen :) I decided to make a quick post to say, I'm still coming back to the site for good after August and...to introduce you to my new roommates. They don't pay rent or utilities, but their company is more than enough for me.
Meet Blood Thirsty Dave, aka 'Davey'
Fizzgig! I was aiming for a name from Arthurian legend, but when I was holding him, I happened to glance up at my Dark Crystal poster and realized that there was only one right name for him.
In another two weeks, I'll also have a twelve month old gray kitten, who I am going to name Nimuae, but I don't have any pictures of her yet, so those will be coming at a later date.
I missed enchantedfolk, but I've been really, really, REALLY busy lately. I've found out that I'm graduating in summer instead of the fall, which is good, but that means my last two semesters at my school are going to be unrelenting. With a good two weeks left until the end of this semester (ack!), I'm in the midst of trying to pull myself together to finish with a bang. Humor and Donald O'Connor are going to be what get me through my remaining weeks. I'm seeing a vast improvement in my work, so that's always a real confidence builder. I've also been introduced to the wonderful painting process that is glazing. Now I know why Maxfield Parrish chose to use the glazing process for his works. It's so liberating and in some cases, forgiving. I love it!
As of about a month and a half ago, I finally had a break through in how to do true gesture drawings, which has made my artistic process exceedingly easier. So, lots of good school/ art related things happening, but...this little green haired artist needs a break. Uncle!
In other news, I'm a vendor at the Denver Waldorf's Festival of Light on December 5th. Every chance I get to go back to any Waldorf school is a treat for me. When I was little I went to the one in Southern California, and most of my happy childhood/ school related memories came from my time spent there. I would have loved to have STAYED in the school for my whole career, but alternative schools scared my Dad and he made my Mom pull me out...even though both Mom and I were squarely against it. C'est la Vie, non?...I feel like Auntie Mame everytime I segway into french like that.
Other than that, I'm just keeping my head above water until I can burst out of the waves and into the tide pool for some well earned relaxation.
I hope all is well with y'all...y'all. Huh, I don't use that one very often.
