I also snagged some multicolored pens while I was gone, too.

I think I’m starting to realize while I drop off the face of the earth during the school year: I’m so damn busy. This might also be why I’ve yet to find anybody write a daily blog from the seat of the studio, as they haven’t the time and really can’t be arsed. And do I blame them? No. But I’d like to at least take a shot at it, even if I do end up getting off the wagon at inappropriate intervals; after all, I did do that week-long posting stint, so hurrah! Ergo, a list (since it’s all I have time/patience for):

It's a sketchbook, dumbass.

I like how the hot pink totally wasn't picked up by the scanner. FAILURE.

CHECK OUT THIS LIST

  • Embarked upon a landscape painting series! It’s… not as bad as the last one but could probably still use more work.
  • Sprained my wrist while embarking upon the landscape painting series. This is really pathetic. It’s also why I have time to write this today, as I took a day off to ice my wrist. Notice my excellent icing technique as I write and strain my tendons for you!
  • Fixed that nasty financial aid. Kerplow.
  • Started sketching daily. I already have a full page of overlapping doodles coming along quite well indeed. Will scan soon. Scanned. See above, below.
  • Am also competing in a public art project. Granted, it’s for class, but it’s good experience! Great experience, even.
  • Knitting, slowly but surely.
  • Have so much homework. But you knew this already.
  • And more! … I just can’t remember jack squat about it.

… yeah, I feel like I need to scan in that picture of the sketchbook right now to make up for the doldrums. In fact, I just did because otherwise, this would be a miserably boring sort of blog. So congratulations: you’ve just won four days of layered pen drawings in a Moleskine. Awesome! Now I’m going to ice my wrist and wonder why I thought that a pointless bullet list was a good idea vs. a simple image post. I’m not sure that all of that effort is going to turn out successful so much as at least 34%.

I only apologize for being too delicious.

I’m going to go ahead and ignore the elephant in the room and say hello, this is a food post. Me? Be absent? Never? Certainly not because of a tiny sporting event called the World Cup — perhaps you’ve heard of it? I guess octopi regularly predict its results or something, all whilst being cute and cephalopod-y. I know, I know: how utterly pedestrian of me to drop a project for some soccer, but whatever whatever I do what I want.

But in honor of Getting My Life Back, please enjoy the recipe post after the cut! In the case that you might be wondering why you should even entreat to read, perhaps this tiny image will entice you:

MACARONI AND CHEESE, MOTHERFUCKERS.

I'm in your browser, enticing you to read about delicious macaroni and cheeses.

State of the Union: Holy Shit, When Did It Become May?! Edition

All this and a picture of tits got me to where I am today.

All this and a picture of tits got me to where I am today.

Funny how those resolution things work; half of my posts in here are, “Oh gosh, how sorry am I that I haven’t written in here!” when, in reality, I’m only apologizing to myself. That being said, this is a case where I’m hardly ashamed of abandoning this blog for four months, for the dearth of posts actually represents a wealth of productivity elsewhere. I’m finally on the other end of sophomore review, finally capable of boasting the role of “member of the junior painting faculty” to show for it, and within the span of the month I’ve learned more about my artistic process than I have within the past three semesters combined. Even within the span of last break, I didn’t have much to boast by way of productivity/studio time, but now I feel as if I have a solid plan for Making Stuff Over the Summer. I want to experiment with media, do this and that, and I feel empowered to do so because I have a voice. I’m not really capable of painting for the sake of process in the sense that it doesn’t give me a proverbial carrot to lock myself downstairs and get high on paint fumes. There needs to be a theme behind it, and courtesy of an extremely helpful Drawing IV project, I think I have just that. I’ve certainly learned a lot this semester, and I suppose I’ll take now to look at a few entries back to see if those lofty goals I set for myself are in effect: Continue reading
