I've recently bought two books and both are on brushwork in painting. The books are called the Brushstroke Handbook by Maureen McNaughton and Brushwork Essentials by Mark Christopher Weber. I love them both, for different reasons. The first has extraordinary detail and the art work is beautiful. The second is good for a quick reference. I've been wanting to paint for a wile now. I played around for a bit and then switch to trying to apply what I picked up from a quick look through of these books. Mind you the ones in the squares are india ink and white paint by Sargent Art. The bottom two pages are Crayola Tempera.

Other then painting I've been shopping for many hours over the last two days. I was looking for black pants. I didn't get any black pants. I did find the shoes I need for work though. I also bought a dress, two shirts, and I found Coraline for $5. My dad picked up the Gremlins also. He mentioned he would get the Harry Potter ones all at once because they where $10 for each in blueray. The only reason he wasn't was because they where missing the last two. I knew they couldn't be so I went and found them. He said he was using that as an excuse and that he really wasn't serious. Damn.

Now here is the too much information second of the blog:
So wile I was trying on a half dozen dresses I noticed something. I have back flab that make the perfect love handles. I don't use that term like most people mean it to be general fattiness I mean actual perfect description of a love handle as just a hand sized, squeeze me, type spot. It is cute and disturbing at the same time.

Secondly I scored when it came to buying bras. Ok maybe not the best score I could hope for but considering how often I go into flying rants about them I'll consider it a score. I have a awkward size that is very rarely if ever found in stores. Victoria secret doesn't even make up into the cup size. Those that do make them normally charge $50-60. Considering you should buy new ones every six months I'm sure you understand my need for rants. I found very close to my size this weekend, close enough I won't feel crushing disappointment after looking, and they where on sale. I got two for $20. A size or so too small in the cup and not the best shape but I'll take it.

Cheers! & Whale!

On Wednesday I went to a job interview, I actually found it to be a great experience. It was relaxing and satisfying at the same time. It was like playing hooky but doing something really good at the same time. I'm also glad it didn't last too long, no time to panic. It was also a really nice and sunny day so waiting outside was a dream.

Back to reality. I barely had my shit together, I had my references but their was pieces missing. They also asked about my school, which is a new one to me, and I didn't have the address,ect. I ended up sneaking off to the car in order to try and find the info seeing as I had my school bag with me and just maybe the fact I don't clean it out would save me. It did in a way. I'm awful with names so I was glad I could snag my teacher name off of my syllabus. Then it was a long wait and I paced back and forth after doodling for a wile. The interview lasted maybe 5 or so minutes. They had no idea how to pronounce my last name. This allowed me a bit of friendly banter. She asked why I picked the hours I did and I told her it was because I was at school in those earlier hours. She asked why I wanted to work there and I said I believed them to be the best to allow me to further my schooling. Then finally I was asked a time when I had helped someone. I stumbled a bit on this one, I am really not a helpful person and my head went to gaga land, but I quickly got back on track and said I helped the drama department at my school, even though I was not in drama. I said it also helped myself since I am an art major and making stage sets was good experience.

I woke up the other day thinking it was a perfect day and everything would go well. My books came in that I ordered and I had the house to myself. Best yet I got a call that told me I got the job. I'm really excited.

Now I'm going to have to be responsible. O.O

Bookshelf Ink Drawing

Hi! It's been a wile. Little bit about art, I still haven't found the yarn I need for Rattata. My bad, kinda a problem using what you have on hand. I've also been working on a commission. It is a bit too big for a decent blog post. It would all be wip with little diffences even after a few hours of work. So that's why I've been laying off on the blog posts. No excuse for not drawing though, that is where I tell you I've been playing pokemon. Yep.

I've been enjoying playing though. I bought the newest games in December and it is 2 months later that I'm finally playing them. Tumblr, once you've found it there is no getting out. I don't even have an account.

I recently finished up my midterms. They where mostly essays, yey. Sociology was hell, Literature was fine, bla bla bla.

I went shopping yesterday. I really need to stop that but not even the punishment of carrying two text books for a mile is enough. I found one on Literature and one called Gardner's Art through the Ages. A hundred dolor book for a $1.29? Sure! Course this just made me want to paint and...well keep me out of the art supply store please.
