I've kind of been experimenting with semi cartoonish interpretations of what I see. This allows me to capture the features and shadows of the figure before they move and ruin everything. Also sometimes realism can be boring. I wish I knew a little bit about animation because I think it would be a neat thing to play around with.

Currently listening to the new Animal Collective EP.

Ruminating on the future...

So I've been frustrated lately. Time to get more serious about doing art and less serious about ... um... something hindering me from doing more art.

I've been thinking about the rest of my life lately, which can be quite daunting if not done in minor doses, and I'm really not seeing a future for myself in the retail industry. Sure, the inane chit chat and banter of cashiering has its perks, but I desire more out of my career. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE asking people the same questions over and over while feigning politeness but sometimes it can really wear on a person. I'm a lot more motivated to work on projects where there is an actual progression and completion over repetitive and seemingly pointless tasks. However I'm still working on what the best way is to make money doing what I like doing, and then overcoming the fear that once I start doing it for money I won't like doing it anymore. Thoughts? Why can't someone just pay me to be creative? Or produce more of these videos...
