I'm not sure why I've been so very silent on LJ lately. Could be that I spend a lot of time playing silly games, drawing, reading things other than the screen of my laptop. Or maybe i'm just totally withdrawing and completing the perfect circle of total solitude and isolation. Where are the muses, the adventurers, the stubborn socialites? I need people, I think. Tragic really, how little I reach out.

Where are you?

caffeina is on Madcow, subcluster 9.

Cluster Status Alert
Madcow, subcluster 9 appears to be down, most likely for maintenance. Please follow the lj_maintenance journal for further status updates.

All that going on while I was fiending for ketchup with all of you and was up to friends?skip=200+ posts when the Madcow cluster clusterfucked. Ah well. I'm going to think up a real update, but in the meantime, PICTURES. (edit: most are pages from recent/current sketchbooks)

Great! I wanted you to see it. I'd been describing it to people a long time, I'm glad I finally got it done.

Maybe I'm dragging you down into a social morass of seclusion? I can't find a decent explanation for my own lack of social interaction. Are we retahded??

bah! omg blush etc.
Wow, his work is really good... I'm intrigued by the broad range of style and subject. Does make me wonder which pieces he feels really passionate about, like which ones are representative of his vision or something.

I'm flattered though, and kind of humbled! I would love to have more art-buddies. I have only really collaborated with a few people ever, and would welcome the opportunity to work with someone new.

Re: bah! omg blush etc.
Yeah, he's a great artist, I don't think whats there truly represents his abilities either. At the moment he is trying to find his style and find his mark.

I'll let him know you're interested. :)

very colorful. you should sell that sketchbook.

an odd idea but there's even odder people, like me, who'd buy that stuff.

I've considered sketchbook-selling!
It's work from many sketchbooks. I'm working in 4 different ones at the moment.

:) I don't think I could bear to part with them... Too many memories. It would be like selling my diary, only dearer.

hello~~!
I found your journal through maxmin's journal. Just thought I would say that your art is gorgeous, and unique. I love it! What medium/s do you use?

Re: hello~~!
Wow, thank you! Mediums... Well it's easier to list what I don't use. I don't presently use Oils, or do any sort of etching, or blockprinting, or macrame...

I use a lot of pens, a lot of gesso, a lot of Prismacolor pencils and acrylics. Gouache, white-out, spraypaint, charcoal, watercolors, enamels, collage. I do a lot of mixed media stuff. Anything that makes a mark is fair game, often with disasterous effects!

Re: hello~~!
I love Prismacolors..the pens they make that are duel-tipped...I can do a lot of damage spending money on those. hehe. The main thing I like about your art is, the expressive quality to the figures, and the vibrant,bold, extreme colors you use...it really brings out the emotion in the peice..I admire that because I find it difficult to use really shocking colors..most of my stuff is monotone or muted.
