Feel free to take a look!


I only add things to my favorites that I REALLY like. So everything here is especially awesome. Go look at it.
I figure I'm a bit overdue for a journal update. Christmas was a long time ago!

There hasn't been much going on besides school and work. I'm in a bit of a pinch now, as this is the second semester of my junior year, and I still have quite a few credits to get in order to graduate in time with my double-major. My nights are often sleepless and my days are usually a constant struggle to stay awake. That's just college life though, right? Things seem to be working out well enough.

I'm taking two history classes at the moment. Europe since 1914 (which is particularly interesting, considering we're in the middle of the 100th anniversary of WWI,) and Modern Russia (which is being taught by a former CIA agent, so that's super awesome.) Along with that, I have three Graphic Arts courses. Digital Media, Printing Estimating, and Technical Writing (which isn't technically a GA course, but it's required for the major.) The latter two are... incredibly dull, to say the least. The only thing I don't like about the GA major is how focused it is on technical and business aspects of the industry. I definitely appreciate being acquainted with those things, as I'd get none of it if I had chosen a Graphic Design major instead, but I have no intention to do anything other than design. It's not more than I can suffer for now, though. Only two and a half more semesters to go.

At the print shop, I've moved up from the press room to the art room, doing design instead of production work finally. I enjoyed working in the press room, but I definitely don't plan to be running presses outside of college unless I have to. Sitting and staring at a computer all day makes me feel a bit lazy though. When it warms up outside I hope to start getting more regular exercise.

I'm still being quite active as the VP of the Graphic Arts Club, and I'm getting more involved with the College Historians. I only vaguely know the people in the latter group, but they've all been very welcoming of me, and the professor who sponsors the Historians club is actually a lot of fun outside of class. So that's been quite enjoyable thus far.

I have not had a lot of time to draw lately. Well... that's not true. I've had a fair amount of free time here and there but I still struggle to do anything productive in that time. I have only finished one drawing in the past few weeks, which I'll upload here soon. Otherwise it's just been some marginal doodles in my notebooks as usual.

The good news is that I have managed to get a bit of writing done. Not a lot, but it's something! I have a small portion of Hauldcrey's story for my Vindication of Achaemon series finished. If anyone is interested in getting a taste of it, and maybe giving me a bit of feedback, feel free to send me a note and I'll be glad to share what I've got. I'm going to try writing at least a bit every week to keep the project progressing, even if it's only a little at a time.

Also, I watched Bridge of Spies recently. Excellent movie. 9.5/10. Would definitely recommend.

Since I'm thinking of Tom Hanks now, I'll leave you all with some wonderful music from one of his best films.

Just so you don't have to read too much, I'll sum myself up in three words.

Artist. Knight. Lizard.

That's all, folks!

I'll add a couple of specifics just because they're necessary.

Yes, I take commissions. No, I don't do requests, except for close friends. I may consider an art trade. Send me a note if you are interested in a commission or a trade.

I am a student of graphic arts and history. My artistic preference is a combination of traditional and digital media. My historical preference is the Middle Ages, though I'm quite fond of history in general.

Don't know if you've heard of or are interested in medieval re-enactment groups (yeah, I know you're busy enough). You might want to look into and find if there's a group near you, see what's happening and get involved.

15 minutes after you thanked me for a watch I accidentally ran into your comment while watching a super-HD remove kebab video on Youtube.
My, what a small world we live in!
