Happy 2012 everyone!

There's two drawings here, one is safe for work and the other is kind of... well, I'll explain.

I suppose it'd dependent on context more than visuals, but basically there's implied abuse in this doodle set. At first, I just wanted to draw bondage and then well, it turned to beating up boys both mentally and physically.

New Years Resolution

I want to finish works, I want to have a professional mindset when it comes to art. I want to improve myself and be happy with who I am and what I do.


Let's not talk about that.

I do not think I can afford it this semester, but I've decided to step up my game and enroll in the Concept Design Academy in Pasadena, CA. Unfortunately the classes are really expensive, but if I work really had at work and save money and pay off bills I think I can really do this. I'm still hoping for an internship at a local company, but I might branch out more too.

I'm hoping to branch out to do game concept work, interface design, and pretty much wherever these drawing hands can take me.

Concept Design Academy

My class schedule for my local school is currently as follows:
- Figure Drawing (retake)
- Watercolor (retake)

No new classes this semester, just going to try to enhance craft. Craft? Can I call this craft?
I think I might drop out of roleplay altogether too, mostly to just keep myself focused and alert. Work, School, Career hunting.

Maybe at some point this year I'll even go on and post a sketchbook...

Car Payment

I know this post is already really disjointed but I'm about to disjoint it even more with saying that I had the greatest scare of the day so far in terms of my car payment. Oh my goodness. I thought my car payment was due today, but no! It was due yesterday, so Ford scolded me by telling me PAYMENT PAST DUE in red, large letters and basically they added this current month's payment with next month's payment and seeing 600 dollars due on a car payment is enough to give anyone a heart attack. (Unless you drive a lexus and that is just the standard monthly payment on those fuckers.)

Man, I can't wait for tax refund time.

I need to pick up more hours and try to find time to draw while working. My art... I don't know how to feel about you, but I really want to push you to the limits. Please allow met o do such.

There are stories interwoven within each other. What starts out as something small quickly spirals into a deeper understanding of the world around these individuals. Each one lives a different life, but they each affect the lives of those around them. In this country, St. Helena created a land hinged between the wastelands of magic and the deserts of the moon. She and her people are gifted in not only being humans, but also in being creatures that absorb the magic around them. Some are born with a greater growth than others... but with such a gift comes responsibility. Those who can't control or understand the knowledge and power they possess grow fearful and eventually, grow mad.

In seeing the suffering of others, St. Helena created a land of reform, of mental health and stability where there was once only shakey grounds. Her great wisdom continues to soothe the souls of her people. Slowly, the people have evolved politically, economically, and magically.

St. Helena herself was a nurse of a common, gentle background. Regardless of the path others have walked, she believed that each person felt sadness, pain, and suffering. She wanted nothing more than to provide education and medicine to those who desired it, and thus her kingdom was created through a set of reforms and roles of leadership. As St. Helena stands now, it is a country focused on the medicinal, science, and magical fields. It is within it's walls that people grow and flourish. Here, the arts of alchemy are used to provide doctors and patients with day-to-day medicine, the sciences are used to provide a better standard of living for the vast majority, and the fields of education bloom unlike any other country.

Of course, no country is perfect. With every expectation there comes doubt, fear, and uneasiness. Children are born every day, each will serve it's country in one way or the other. With how fast paced the country is becoming, it's easy to let one or two individuals slip between the system. Even now, there are reports of mental breakdowns and suicides. Those who can not keep up or are of unhealthy mind are often seperated and treated differently. It's not to say that the individuals themselves are at fault, it is just a fault that this glorious kingdom has in maintenance. With so much development, how to cope with changes and failures... well, it hasn't really been thought about before.

Now then, why don't we take a look at the children who reside in Helena? Why, there's some outside of the city's walls, and some who have never even left them! There are foreigners to this kingdom, and natives who frankly can't seem to find their way around it.

This is a tale of some of those children and of their successes and failures. We can only hope that they, in their struggles to live a normal and healthy life in this magical world, will come out on top and each gain their own happy ending.

Praise to St. Helena, you are welcomed into her arms.
