Most of you know that I’ve never really gotten into traditional art mediums like drawing and painting. As a kid I started in the digital realm and got comfortable there, but honestly, I could really feel a hole in my artistic skills that needed to be filled. So when I took a drawing class this semester, I was nervous but excited, and I’m pretty happy the development that I’ve experienced in that area. Here are a few of my drawings from this semester.
Funny, beautiful, heartrending, and so worth it.
Tomorrow I leave for college at the University of Oklahoma–and I’m going to be a 13 hour drive from home. And so I just said my final goodbyes to the people I’ve been around for most of my life. Sure, I’ll see some of them at Thanksgiving and Christmas, and next summer, but this still has a painful feeling of finality to it. So much life happens during the school year.
My friends, it’s been amazing. I’m going to miss everyone back home, and I’m hoping to keep in contact with many of you (seriously, I’m so thankful for the internet and smartphones right now). Also, good luck to my friends who are fellow freshmen–we’re in this together!
So in light of this transition in my life, I’m sort of revamping my blog and consolidating my web content, to make keeping up with stuff easier. I’ve been wanting to move it to this domain for a while (I used to post on 3rdruleproductions.wordpress.com), and this seems like the perfect time to do so.
Previously, I posted just art, but this blog is going to be a whole lot more. I’ll write about my experiences, perhaps do an occasional vlog, post video projects, 3D projects, photography, philosophical ramblings, and pretty much whatever I feel like. Maybe even fictional writing. I’m going to try and update it at least weekly, but we’ll see how hard the school year hits me.
Until next time, farewell!
