Mheetu's last moments by Juffs
by Juffs

A simple yet strong picture. With a limited color pallet, the eye is drawn straight to Mheetu's face, which hold the only vivid color. ...

Reading "Cybergryph", I have shoved all previous previews and prior knowledge of the story aside as to make sure I am not influenced by...

I think I was gonna be discussing art in this post. But I forgot what I was gonna say. I guess that's what happens when I wait a month to post another Journal. What happens in a month? Apparently a lot. It's been very eventful, personally.

I suppose back around my first journal entry, I was being a bit more artistic, working on sketches here and there. But that was Spring Break time, and as school started back up, things got busy really quickly. Semester projects, normal projects, assignments, and whatnots. Honestly, I could rant on and on about it, but that would be pointless. Essentially, I've just had very little time to be working on improving my drawing capabilities. And that's sad.

I know I mentioned talking about getting into pottery again, but again school has been rather good at preventing that. However, I did consider taking a ceramics course at my university over the summer. I wanted to audit it so that I wouldn't have to worry about grades. However, financial aid does really like audited classes, and I can't really afford school without my financial aid. Unfortunately I couldn't fit it into my schedule other wise. There's always the local community center for ceramics. I should look into that. Hopefully, it would be affordable for a college student.

Good news is that the semester is almost over, which means a whole lot of stress will soon be gone, and a whole lot more free time, which means I can focus more on art. Most likely working on drawing, because that's what I want to improve on the most. I have considered looking into artistic, creative coding, but in all honestly I want to learn to draw good first. Also some video games I plan on playing. Gotta finish those.

On a semi-related side note, I did do what I said I'd never do, and I got an FA account. Not sure if that's worth mentioning (or if it really is a good idea to mention), but anyone who's seen my current icon or looked through my favorites shouldn't really be surprised. And that's where my recent drawing attempts have been going. Why aren't they posted here? Because quite honestly, unless I manage to draw with a certain artistic I don't know what, I don't really feel that sort of art matches the tone of what I have in my gallery here on dA, at least at this point in time. Other sketches, though, I may post here, depending on the quality. So expect much for now, which I guess is like how it's always been, so no difference then.

What else has happened? I've been taking a lot of photographs with my phone. I don't really think I should upload them. After all, they're just phone photos of my cats, flowers, trees, and sunsets. Nothing really professional or artistic. Just snapshots. Unless you really want to see them. Though, there are a few snapshots that I do think are worth sharing. Facebook, maybe. Here? Hmm. Again, I have a desire for there to be an artistic I don't know what in what I post here. I may post a couple of the more artistic ones, and see what people think.

Also, I've had the urge to learn the banjo. Or a guitar. Or a fiddle. One of those. I don't have any instruments, but it would be cool. Well, I don't have a fiddle, but my brother has a banjo, but it's kinda broken, but he does have an electric guitar. Maybe I can borrow it.

Okay, now it really does sound I'm wanting to learn all the creative arts, and I should really stop that. After all, a jack of all trades is a master of none. But banjos are cool. And so are guitars and fiddles. And photography, creative coding, drawing, and ceramics. Okay, yeah, I should just pick something and focus on it. Drawing, that's my main focus now, until I get into ceramics again. Photo taking will just be a more casual hobby, and creative coding and music making shall be pipe dreams.

And that's about it. That's what's been going on with me in the realm of the arts. This post turned out longer than I thought it would be. Hopefully that doesn't annoy anybody.

Actually, it was a gift from my brother a couple Christmases ago. But it's probably my favorite scarf I have. Thanks for noticing, though.

Well, it is a nice group. Though I wouldn't say it's my group. It's a friend's group that I just help out with occasionally. I still think it's kinda crazy you've seen me before.
