tiny sketch, long day


So I’m exhausted.

Today I had the fun experience of renewing my work visa.

This entailed approximately an hour and 15 min drive to get to Morioka, 30 min. on foot to find the place, 30 min to process the application, 15 min walk to the train station, 40 min wait for the train, 1 hour and 15 min train ride back to Mizusawa, 45 min lunch break, 1 hr of office work, 1 hr drive to Ichinoseki, 5hrs of teaching, 45 min drive home…CRAP day!

So, you may as well say I worked all day because I left for work a 8am and just got home now at 8:50pm.

BLEH

So this is all you get!

train sketch

A quick sketch I did on the train.

I am hoping however, that when I have some time again to turn it into a larger piece.

I want to black out the people and focus on the window with all the blurring colors as the train travels by.

I dunno if that will happen this weekend or not because I’m also working SUNDAY.

Have I mentioned I’m looking forward to coming home???

Oh and here’s a few videos for you, I couldn’t decide which one to post. (I like them all)

Enjoy, Cheers and Goodnight

“Life” complete with “sex”


Ok, well it’s finished, “life” that is. Or at least as finished as it’s going to get for a while.

But first, let’s look at sex.

This piece was hard to get to.

I think the problem was that I was looking at what sex is and could be and forgot all about what it is to me.
I’m not real concerned if you get it or not, because frankly I think you’d have to be inside my head to fully understand it.

(And the thought of you all walking around in there is a pretty scary concept. That and the fact that I wouldn’t want liability suits springing up because you tripped/fell over something, it is pretty cluttered 😛 )

Either way, here it is. “Sex”~ Life seriesPlease do still feel free to comment.

Alright, here’s Life Series“Life” as it currently stands.

I’ve decided that I won’t just drop the project, but add to it as things come up in my life.

So, section 1 of “life” is complete.

Cheers,

An understanding of “Life”


I’m feeling good. I’ll start by saying I’ve just finished two more pieces of the series I’m working on.

But first, let me provide you with a little clarity and insight into the paintings thus far.

When I started this project I wasn’t entirely sure where I was going with it or what I wanted to do with it.

Thus, 2 un-named paintings and an uncertainty of what would follow. Now however, I’m 4 paintings into the project and have become enlightened you might say as to what it is I’m doing. And what is that you ask, or I’m sure you would if you were here or perhaps at the very least think it…right?…right?…anyway 😛

The first painting was started when I was on my break at work. I was quite literally just playing around, trying to kill time until my next class arrived. So, I started to sketch things around me and thought it would be fun to abstract them resulting in un-named one. Which I have renamed as simply “Work“.

The second painting was done while I was sick at home. I decided that since I was painting a series on “Life” (specifically mine as well as the universality of everyones’ life) sickness would be an appropriate topic, so I grabbed all the various meds in the house and started sketching/abstracting/painting away. Thus un-named 2 has been renamed as “Illness.”

This brings us to the new paintings which I’ve decided to post separately.
