realized i didnt show where
i stopped on the last drawing.
after this drawing i may go back and finish this,
but somehow i doubt it.
i didnt like the overall quality,
and thought i could do better.
i think too much time has passed and
cant get back into the groove of this one.
all of the drawing definitely represent
a period of my life and what is going on...
on alot of the drawings i can recall what happened,
and in some ways its a journal/diary.

my xbox got da 3 light red ring of death.
i was really bummed out,
but i got more time to concentrate on drawing...
which is what i should be doing anyways.

anyways, i started cleaning up the xbox accesories
which is where i kept my zapped camera and lenses.
i noticed the camera had power. (what?!!!)
my camera had been dead for at least 2 months.
so i turned it on and BAM! it works!!!
i dont have to get a new camera and
now i can put financial focus to the computer.
(high five to god)

i have a new focus for photography,
since i had this downtime without my camera.
i spent the time reading up
on some of my favorite photographers.
(martin parr, stephen shore, joel meyerowitz)
ive some ideas as to what to attack for my next project(s).
time to get buzy over the summer,
and come up with some documentaries and
some thoughts of vancouver life.

currently listening to some gangsta ish:
ganksta n.i.p. - the south park psycho
(the most hardcore gangsta album ever lol)
geto boys - the resurrection
(remember office space? smash that ish!!!)
n.w.a. - straight outta compton
(if it aint ruff, it aint me)
ice-t - home invasion
(yea ice, ice m. f. TEE!)
tim dog - penicillin on wax
(tell 'em whos stompin'! f*** compton!)
slayer - reign in blood
(just for more angry ish - angel of death!!!)

number 4!

been a long time,
but i hope to post now on a more regular basis.
(for reals this time)
the reason for NOT posting is
because of my computer is sooo sloow.

anyways i started on drawing number four.
im having alot more fun with this one over the other ones.
the size of the characters and also a new plan of attack
should be fun for this one.
im going to make some smaller drawings,
and....color them?
gonna give it a shot,
lately ive been into markers again.
there was a big sale over at the art
store and they were blowing out tria markers.
i also plan to get a set of copic markers (wtf).
who knows if this fad will die out like it did during college,
but im giving it a shot.
i didnt think id get back to drawing on a regular basis....

but here i go again....
