Personal Quote: one minute you're waiting for the sky to fall, and next you're dazzled by the beauty of it
long time no post.

what am i doing?  nothing.  working and going to class, that's pretty much it.  oh, that and planning a wedding.  it's boring and i don't like it.  i want to do art and i get sad when i see other people doing it because that's what i'm supposed to be doing.  not this.  this sucks.  well, i mean i get paid well and good benefits and a free degree and it's not a bad job.  i like it enough and i've been told i'm good at it (i just got nominated for an award), but it's not me and ugh.  i'm bored and sad.

i'm getting a bit motivated though.  i'm making some crafty things for the wedding (cardbox, invitations, table numbers, etc.) and that's helping a bit.  at the very least it's inspiring me to use what little free time i have for art.  i'm also helping my fiance out with a movie he's working on.  his cousin's making a documentary and he's freelancing for her doing an animation for it and some post production stuff.  he asked me to help with some ideas for the animation and i somehow got roped into doing the artwork for it.  i'm doing paper cut outs with watercolors (think eric carle) that he's going to scan in and animate.  i'm enjoying it a lot though (i've always loved doing paperwork) and i'll post some things as i finish them.

i've also been inspired and gotten an idea for a children's book.  we'll see how that goes.  a classmate of mine asked if i could MAYBE help her with illustrations for an idea that she has as well, but she has a friend "that's into drawing and stuff" so i'm thinking she might go in that direction.  oh well.  now i just have to actually do something on mine.  unfortunately art school has made me quite deficient with using the written language to communicate, so we'll see.  maybe i should come up with an idea that doesn't require words, only pictures.

work wise i got asked to be part of the theatre committee as our last productions were sort of a bust.  my class got asked (the day before) to make some props for the last show, and that was fun and they turned out quite well, or so i think anyways.  i'm hoping to get them more involved in the next few shows and to get myself more involved as well.  i'm aiming to take over the theatre position next year.  i think it'd be good at it, it's more me, i can see it being really fun for both me and the kids (and really beneficial to them as well), and it'll make my time here more bearable.  plus it's a position that'll still allow for some really good entries on my resume.  so keep your fingers crossed.  i've been told my prospects look good so far.

ah well, i'll upload things as/if i make them and hopefully fun will be had for all.  as for me, i'm going back to marking down my calendar.  2 more years and i'll be free to change careers back to art.

Hello, Bethany!
This haiku is all for you
Missed is your features

"Come back," said the earth
To the wind-laden duo
"And par-tay with us!"

Well, I just don't hear anything from you lately. :hmm: Are you doing okay? You've been signing in but nothing out of you in almost 3 months. Were you ever able to get some supplies?
betani Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2007
hm... i didn't notice this until now. sorry about that. yeah... i've been neglecting my art - well, sorta. i haven't made anything new, but i've been busy applying to grad school so i've been organizing my portfolio and such. i started a piece a little while ago, but didn't like it and got consumed with work again. basically, i've just been REALLY busy. i'm working full time, taking 3 classes, applying to grad schools and various other programs, and i've been sick since last december (yup, over a year) and it's really starting to wear on me. my sinuses are driving me crazy and no amount of medication is making them better - very frustrating. plus, my supplies are kinda ghetto - they're my fiance's old ones from high school, so they're old and not the stuff i like to work with which makes things a bit more difficult. i have made a few little doodles though that i've been meaning to upload, but i don't have a scanner and the camera method's annoying. =0P

so yeah, lost of things are working against my participation in deviant art ight now, but i'm planning on catching up as soon as i get some time. well... if i ever get some time.... =0P
