I've been behind in posting my 365. I wanted to do a quick blog to let you know that I am still keeping up with it and I will be posting a mother-load by this weekend.

Also, things have been great for me these days! OK, so it's not perfect, but I see my life moving in the direction I want it to.

I also had a talk with some friends that refreshed my resolutions for 2010. I haven't even been thinking about it, but subconsciously, I've been sticking to it. :)

Zodiac Road Trip

School's been out since last Friday, but I've still been a very busy bee. Today is the first day I've had to do absolutely nothing, but I thought I'd blog because I didn't want to get anymore behind than I already am.

DAY 137 - MAY 17, 2010
TITLE: Zodiac Road trip
MEDIUM: Pens and highlighters

While reviewing for Astronomy, I zoned out for a bit and started doodling on my star charts. Thought about a road trip on the zodiac so I can figure out why Capricorns are so cavalier, Geminis are so indecisive, Scorpios are so manipulative, Cancers are so passive-aggressive, Aries are so stubborn, Sagitarians crave so much attention, and why Leos are so arrogant.


DAY 138 - May 18, 2010
TITLE: Extra-celestial
MEDIUM: Nail polish

In honor of the Luna & Venus tryst of a couple of weeks ago, I decided to do my nails. I'm really digging the design, however I fell asleep while waiting for it to dry and so it got a little messed up. Should've taken a picture of it instantly after I did it. Bleh.

GOOD BYE SPRING 2010! It has been nice to know you (not really)!
A little over a week ago, I was sitting at the bar, enjoying a drink, my friend Mark started playing "Heartbreak Warfare" by John Mayer. I finished my drink quickly and left for home. I got an idea and I didn't want it to escape me.

DAY 134 & 135 - May 14 & 15, 2010
TITLE: (Work in Progress)
MEDIUM: Pencil and Ink

On the left is a sloppy sketch of the idea. The inventory included: Nunchucks, ninja stars, a rifle, a glock, a samurai sword, dynamite, a pirate sword, a dagger, a spiked ball, a grenade, brass knuckes, and rope.

The next day, I took off dynamite and brass knucklesm off the inventory and added a bow & arrow started stippling away. I am glad I put off stippling for the next day because how could I have forgotten the bow & arrow when I'm such a Legolas fan? :P

DAY 136 - MAY 16, 2010
TITLE: Heartbreak Warfare

The final piece -

"Once you want it to begin,
No one really ever wins
In heartbreak warfare"

- John Mayer

I LOVE how it turned out. If I do say so myself. I haven't done this technique in a long time and it took forever, but it sure was worth it.

Just Because

Just because a girl is strong, it does not mean that she doesn’t break down. She heals with time, she’s been mended, and she’s constantly in repair.

Just because a girl is smart, it does not mean that she doesn’t get stupid when she falls in love. A time will come when passion overcomes reason, a time when lessons are learned the hard way, and inevitably, yesterday's lessons must be relearned.

Just because a girl is beautiful, it does not mean she is not insecure. She has scars and blemishes she prays the world won't see.

Just because a girl laughs, it does not mean she is not sad. Each smile and chuckle is winning the fight against shedding a tear, until the war is over.

Just because a girl is graceful, it does not mean she does not stumble. Everyone falls.

Just because a girl understands, does not mean she is not angry. It takes many deep breaths, eyes wide open, and a compassionate heart to fight the desire to scream and strike.

Just because a girl is adored, it does not mean that she is not lonely. When the party is over, when the make up has been wiped away, she's only got herself to talk to when the nights are dark and long.

Low Bat

DAY 133 - May 13, 2010
TITLE: Low Bat
MEDIUM: Markers

The end of the semester always leaves me feeling like a battery being drained. x_x

I started drawing this and I remembered a quote from the comedian Demetri Martin:

"I think batteries are the most dramatic object of all the objects , because other things they stop working or they break. But batteries...they DIE! If you're a battery you're either working or you're dead. That's a sh*t life."

Here's more from Demetri Martin:

DAY 132 - May 12, 2010
MEDIUM: Computerized graphic

Life has a way of balancing things out. Yesterday, I was bummed out about hearing all these couples breaking up. Today, I remembered that my friends are celebrating their one-year anniversary. I guess there is still hope after all. :)

Birthdays and blues

DAY 130 - May 10, 2010
TITLE: Happy birthday, May Babies!
MEDIUM: Marker

I gave greetings for all the April babies last month and it's only fair that I continue to do monthly greetings. I don't know why I didn't start doing this within the first month of this project. Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAY BABIES!
DAY 131 - May 11, 2010
TITLE: Lonely Feet
MEDIUM: Pencil
It seems like everyone is throwing their love away. When you're blessed to find your penguin, you're supposed to cherish them.

What happened to "forever"?

It's hard to be hopeful that you'll find somebody someday when the relationships that gave you hope are falling apart everywhere. Maybe it's time to just give up on the idea of soulmates or true love.

On the flip side, maybe the idea of soulmates is a bad idea anyway. What if you were dealt a shitty one?
