I never really got poetry until I heard a spoken word piece, and it just hit me.

Andrea Gibson's poems do this to me every damn time, and then I just sit there like, she put it into words. Beautifully, even. Amazingly.

I'm pretty visual, so I listen to Jellyfish and I can envision images that go along with the words. Often I try to express it with an illustration, but it doesn't quite fit right and I give up. This I saw and tried and feel like it came out alright, it's one of my many favorite parts. Actually, the whole thing is my favorite.

Some of my other favorites are Asking too Much, Panic Button Collector, and Bullets and Wind chimes.

TL;DR get some Andrea Gibson into your life

Switching from cintaqs to tablets is such a switch

If you look at all the tags, you can see that I worry a bit about being vain, and then pop right back up from that. To quote Lady Gaga, Art and pop culture is me.

I used my little old Bamboo tablet for this, it's definitely different from the cintaqs at school, but it gets the job done.

In other news, I'm going back to red soon, and I'm so excited. Like, I like other colors, and I'll probably miss them a bit after I switch, but I'm happiest with red.

Maybe if I actually bleached my hair and could get as bright hues with other shades I'd switch colors more often, but red is just so nice and bright right away.

I've been posting a lot on my art tumblr

It's nice to have a tumblr just for my art, I also have a personal blog that's kind of a mess, but my art one is just my art, and it's all in one nice place and people can reblog from it. You know, if they want.

I've been wanting to mess around more with blending modes, and I've been working pretty non stop on assets for my senior project, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity to do both for a few minutes.

Also, Espeon is apparently me. So if I was a pokemon, I'd be Espeon. According to my friends at least. The more you know

I'm in love with Blank Spzce, tbh

Darling I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream.

I should blog more

But I'm don't. Oopsie. I have another blog (this is actually me going to be gushing over my senior project I'm so sorry. Feel free to scroll on, I hate feeling like I'm just pushing things I've done in people's faces, I'm so sorry) I keep blogging to the other blog, and then I'm like, yeah that's good. I don't have any other blogging things to do, I have finished all the blogging I need to do. And it's not true but I fall for it every time.

HOWEVER, speaking of games, my whole senior project is a game which right now is called Project Oriana. (we have a website. and a twitter. and a tumblr. and a facebook. I'm not saying you should like us, but just in case: Facebook! ) And it's so cool because we get to research other games and their process, and all the concept art is gorgeous and building a story and a journey is so intricate and magical. I'm also doing alot of color keys, and color is like my favorite thing in the whole world (except maybe female superheros.)

Games aren't just a way to waste time, it's an interactive story that you get to experience, often first hand. And it's wonderful.
