It Puts the Lotion on the Skin

Finding inspiration in all the strangest places.  Not knowing where to turn, I find strength from deep within myself.  Remembering how much I love creating, I continue to push forward.

My dreams await.
The Journey Continues…

Not Too Far Away

As the new year approaches, so does my deadline for having my website up and running.  I doubt I’ll be able to get the shop running… and if I did it wouldn’t have anything to sell.  So, first things first.  Complete the website.

As time passes, and I get closer and closer to launch date, I’ve begun to worry about just how much of my goals I’ll have completed by the time everything goes live.  The goal of having a Website/Blog/Store/Portfolio and having a decent selection of T-shirts to sell by New Years seems further and further from reach.  Everytime I sit down to review my progress, I tell myself I’ll work harder, cut more hours from other activities, etc…

I’m so tired of everything I want being second to everything else.
I’m ready to blast outta here and hit Xscape Velocity.

Over the next month or so I’ll be transferring my wordpress dot com to a wordpress dot org.  So, don’t panic if I break it in the process… making omelets and all that jazz.  :)

P.S. ~ Just seen this while looking for a quote on twitter.  GrutBrushes.com  has 4 free Photoshop BallPoint Pen brushes for free.  Limited time offer, only a couple hours left.

Going through withdraws from having not drawn anything in a while…  I have been sketching, some rough ideas/concepts, more brainstorming than anything else.  But most of my time has been spent in RnD phase.

My brain needed a release.
October will be a good month

I just got this feeling

I’ve been wanting to get back into photo manipulation for awhile now.  Having leveled up my painting skills, I’m interested in seeing how the two will combine.

I guess we’ll see.

I wasn’t sure where to start.
I had this idea (unclear as it was/is), but just couldn’t seem to figure out the best way to express it.  So, instead of sitting around thinking about it, I just started creating.

Creation turns out to be a great place to start creating.

Expect to see more thumbnails in the future while I’m sorting through my blueprints and gathering tools.

The Journey is becoming quite exciting!

I had to do some quick sketches before I got to work today.  There was a deep need to create and I needed to satisfy it, else I go mad from deprivation.  I start my second week of work tomorrow, doing Tech Support for Xerox.  I’m enjoying the challenge of learning new things, and developing new skills sets.

The Journey
