I am teaching myself digital art, and it's frustrating.

Here's something they didn't have at my art school: tablets or a course on how to draw using tablets. In fact, I can count the number of classes focused on fundamentals of drawing on one hand. And I was taking Illustration.

I can use traditional materials well. They're comfortable to me. Not so the Wacom Bamboo and bewildering number of art brushes out there.

Never has this icon been so apropos.

I want to spare you my feelings being spewed all over Twitter; there are funnier, more insightful or original liveTweeters/bloggers out there writing about this (and I am going to read them right now! First stop: Janice Poon. Next stop: [personal profile] cleolinda's Storify.)

But if you want to know what I was yelling during the episode, by all means read on! )

In conclusion, Hannibal is as beautiful and batshit as ever and I am there for all of it 100%. Can't wait.

So in between doing the Book Project this week, I have also been compiling my portfolio, which is pretty much guaranteed to fill me with horror and shame.

Note to self: DO NOT look at other illustration blogs while sorting out your portfolio. Here is a tiny sampling of people who usually make me happy but today just made me depressed:

On the bright side, these people really are awesome, so go check them out!

Watched the HitRECord livestream at Sundance last night with all possible glee and fangirlishness. Woke up angry this morning, full of belated rage. Why? Because at every pop culture mass event I have ever been to, there's always a douche who tries to start up the Hipster debate. Only this time Joe, a guy I usually trust to cut other people's bullshit, actually gave him the mic. Unleashing a stream of wank about how 'indie means flannel' and 'hipsters are those guys who dress like artists but don't actually make anything'. Well what the fuck do artists dress like, then? Tell me so I can obey this instantly decoded norm.

why hipster is not a fucking swear word )

So one viewing of a hitRECord video on youtube and it's like being smacked in the face with the midnight disease: you can't go to bed without making something.

something )

Sorry, been feeling frustrated lately. I think this month has been very hard for a lot of people (argh, understatement) and there's been a lot of bad feeling surging around for a while. I don't know why it's affecting me today especially.

now I'm whining about whining, feel free to skip )

Hey, here's an idea. Feel like complaining about something but ashamed to post it on your own blog and have to look at it every day? Stick it here. Go on, get it out :)

Ooh, look at me posting from my phone! I hate it.

Seriously guys, this nokia is so counter-intuitive and i'm so tired from work. (Am on swing shift today and tomorrow, having meetings with people in indiana). I tried to email a friend and gmail isn't working, i have a bunch of half-done paintings and no projects lined up, and now the predictive spelling on this damn phone is being an idiot.

I miss my laptop so much. Can't post any of the work i've been doing, can't do those fanart composite i was working on or go on tumblr...and it took me 17 minutes to write this.

Sorry for the delay in ficcing and art; I've just had word that my MacBook's hard drive needs to be replaced. Going sans laptop for a while and need to figure out my options.

(ps. Would people find my icon offensive? It's been my the-world-is-getting-too-much-for-me icon for a few years now, but in light of Recent Events I'm not sure it's entirely appropriate anymore. Should I get a new one?)

So in the middle of a meeting at work today the HR guy running our meeting refers to evolution as an unproven theory, and I turn to the girl behind me and say 'Can you believe he said that??'

She boggled appropriately, but the very next words out of her mouth were 'You mean you believe we came from apes?'


I don't know why I bothered to try arguing. I said something like 'you mean you'd rather believe the universe is 6000 years old and people have been LYING EVERYWHERE FOREVER than believe we're descended from apes?'

She gave me a squinty-eyed shrug as if to say: 'don't you?'

Three responses I thought of making:
1) How the hell did you graduate high school, much less university?
2) If the Bible says 2+2=8, are you going to stop doing math, which is how you make your LIVING? (Corollary: the Bible does say pi is equal to exactly 3.0. Does that mean circles don't really exist?)
3) So, you've read what, two books in your life?

But I knew (just as I know starlight is MILLIONS OF YEARS OLD) that she would neither understand nor listen to any kind of rational argument, because people like this just do not accept rationality into their lives the way they accept Jesus. Many people have room for both. Not this breed.

You guys, I hardly paid attention the rest of the meeting. I was too busy staring around, wondering how many other people I have to interact with every day are this insane.

Am changing my default icon for a while to protest the whitewashing of the upcoming Avatar movie. More info can be found here, here and here.

I was upset enough when the Filipino and Latino main characters in Robert Heinlein's Starship Troopers were played by Denise Richards and a man who looked destined to play the star quarterback in B-list high school films for the rest of his life. But that was a small movie, and they made up for it by making a really awesome animated series. The reverse seems to have happened here.

The weirdest part is that M Night Shyamalan, a South Asian, is directing it, and not only has he cast South Asians as the "evil" Fire Nation while the oppressed minority Water and Air tribes are white...he himself is playing Zuko's Uncle Iroh! You'd think an Indian director would try to rectify the Hollywood trope of "any old Asian will do"...

Due to circumstances it's too painful for me to talk about, I will not be coming back to London as scheduled. Frankly I don't know when I am going back, but I will be trying to get there as soon as frickin' possible.

I just remembered something I really wished I hadn't.

about pervy men in comic stores and giving away power )

Ok, I miss drawing so much. Soooooooooooooooo much.

I've been so uninspired. A lot of things have been more immediate, and there's things that need to be done before I can get to work. I can't draw unless I have space, and I won't have space unless I clear my desk, and I can't do that until I clean up elsewhere....

But my drawing hands are starving. STARRRRRRRRRRVING.

Dammit I will draw something tonight if it kills me.

Why is Livejournal demanding age verification from me when I try to create a new account? I am 26 years old and now I've been carded by Livejournal. Also, my site is down despite my having paid to renew it, and among other horrible things, that means bye-bye mood theme.

Yeah, good to be back.

Dear whatsyourface,

It's all very nice and hippie to be a "soft plans" kind of a person, but in real life people don't like friends they have to chase down ALL THE TIME.

And you have the nerve to reproach me for expecting you to call before standing me up and not over 24 hours after? I have now officially lost my respect for you.
