Working larger in life drawing.
Well, I shouldn't really judge my self so quickly. Lets just say that I shall (hopefully) be returning to NYC in order to (hopefully) confirm my attendance at the school I most desire to study at.
We shall see.
I defiantly don't feel down anymore - so that is wonderful.

I cant find my phone. It is getting rather annoying.
I feel lost in the monotony of every-day-ness. Stuck in between different stages of my life. Limbo.
Have been working and studying a lot lately. Seems that is all I ever do these days.
As well as sleep. Lots of that.
Which is what I plan on doing now.
What do you think of this little watercolor I did a few weeks ago?
I shall have to show you another one I did Tuesday.

The wonderful painter James Courtenay James painted this work, in which the large picture is based on Marie. It gives one a new perspective to look at yourself through the eyes of another.
Not to mention I happen to be eating my one of my dearest flavors of ice cream.
So now I shall be eternally enjoying mint ice cream in an art gallery.

Back from new England. As you see I didn't have a second to spare to post, and if I had most of the time ididnt have acess to a computer.
The trip was quite a sucess. God has lead me to a place that I hope to attend next year and I am quite excited. I got some pictures, still don't know how they will turn out but we shall see.
It was wonderful seeing NYC again and visiting with many relatives and friends. Seeing Audrey was quite a joy. Here is a picture she took in the basement where we slept.

Today has been really busy. Got pictures of about 20 or so sculptures for my portfolio with my dad's help (as well as this picture of what I was wearing. Felt rather hippy), worked, and packed (am still packing). Tomorrow we depart for New England with the trunk packed with my portfolio and shoes and dresses. And Belle and Sebastian playing.
I smell like coffee.
I will try and post over the next week but no promises.
Do you want to see the endless amount of my little sculptures?
I have so many I will have stuff them in every nook and cranny of my room.

Doing some reading from school
stumbled upon this saying by Plato
"If you think that by killing men you can prevent some one from censuring your evil lives, you are mistaken; that is not a way of escape which is either possible or honourable; the easiest and the noblest way is not to be disabling others, but to be improving yourselves."
Picture of my dearest Audrey. Good quotes always remind me of her.

All the places that were a sanctuary to me I no longer feel welcome at.
All the people I care about are, or are about to be, far away.
Maybe I will just stop being an artist for a year.
I have a problem.
Sorry for all the ranting.

School began this morning. Things are looking up. All my subjects I am taking are ones I enjoy and the to teachers I have had so far a great. The math teacher is a stand up comedian. Not really but he should be.
In a weeks time I shall be on my way to the New England area on a wonderful road trip with my mom. We shall visit Audrey and maybe just have to kidnap her and take her with us.
We shall see.

The past two days have been a strange mixture of wonderful and woeful.
One the one hand I have amazing friends and, for the fist time ever, I got through an entire shift with out making a zillion airhead mistakes.
On the other hand, there has just been so much shit. No other way to say it really.
Life is strange.
I wish I could just stand up to people who think they can take advantage of me.
I wish I could be independent.
Because so many people just awful.
Have a great Sunday.

School starts Monday.
If only the school year could be in a perpetual state of summer break,
and the weather in a perpetual state of winter,
then the world would be a much better place.
Hopefully by this time next year I will be packing off to art school.
Then I will not complain any more -
Because I really dispise community college.
You have asked me some questions and here are some answers.
Firstly, I must apologize to the person who is always wanting to see my cardboard chair because I took some pictures of it and was stoked to finally post them but when they were developed (this afternoon) they only half turned out. So here is half of the chair. I should have some pictures of it on the next roll of film I get developed so fingers crossed that those shots will turn unout well.
Also there is a half picture of my room with it's new white walls and a painting on loan from Thomas Tulis.
Secondly - the shoes two posts ago were thrifted mens shoes that I did stud myself. I bought a 100 pack of studs on Ebay for $5 and it was very easy to put them all over whatever I wanted.
You should try it.
Here are some good fashion and art sights.
Igor and Andre - fashion illustration
Cessna Decosimo - My Mentor/teacher: a classic figure sculptor
Anahata Katkin - Great mixed media
Hedi Slimane Diary
The Streets Walker - the most wonderful street fashion blog
Jak & Jil
The New Kid
There are a lot of links at the bottom of my page so you can check those out as well.
So now I have some questions for you. Do you know of any places I should visit/shop at in NY or Boston?

Been sculpting from life most every day this week.
And doing a good deal of drawings. Here are some studies of a plaster cast of the head of Laocoon.
Some of you have been asking questions, and i would like to answer them. So, you ask any question you want and I will answer them in the next post.

Second day of work today, and I sill don't know how to make a mocha or frappe. Or anything for that matter.
I feel quite inadequate.
Found out that all my troubles are due to an ear infection. Now that the doctor gave me some pretty pills I feel quite almost normal.
Here is a sketch I did of a cast cherub.
To day I saw someone who could have been an angel
Maybe I will draw them next time.

Today I am sick. Not very fun, but if I stay in bed and sleep, eat popsicles, and chill then hopefully tomorrow I will be well.
Here is a sketch I did at life drawing a while a go.
