365 Overload!

Been quite the busy bee lately, but I'm still sticking to the commitment I made to my 365 Days of Art project. I'm really doing badly on my resolution to practice better time management. Sigh

March has definitely been better than February. I've been given lots of reasons to celebrate - birthdays of loved ones, the homecoming of friends, the Christening of a beautiful baby girl. Even though it's been a few good days, I can't seem to shake off this feeling of apathy. I've had my moments of rejoicing, but generally, one a happiness scale from 1 to 5, I'd say I'm a 3. I have been having a hard time putting my heart into most of the things I normally love doing. It'll pass, I know it.

Like I said earlier, I'm still keeping up with the project so here's a bunch of art for you.

DAY 79 - March 20, 2010
Medium: Pen

Although I said that I have been feeling slightly apathetic, it's really not all bad. I feel like I am in control of what I do with my life, which is definitely a good thing! It's just a matter of accepting that all I can do is try, and sometimes I just need to give myself break.

DAY 80 - March 21, 2010
TITLE: Upset Stomach
MEDIUM: Paper Cut-outs and Marker

After enjoying a whole lot of pickled green mango, a local seasonal treat, my tummy wasn't exactly feeling great. The slight discomfort was definitely worth all the sour spicy goodness!

DAY 81 - March 22, 2010
TITLE: Rosey Posey

I was working on a piece on Photoshop. Unfortunately, I did not save it like I thought I did. Disheartened with my Photoshop fail, since I'm definitely seasoned enough in the craft to practice caution, I decided to do something simple, and this was the first thing to come to mind. I'm just going to have to revisit that project some other time.

DAY 82 - March 23, 2010
TITLE: Brown Dwarf

Once again, my Astronomy class inspired me. We're studying different types of celestial objects (mainly stars) and I learned about an object called brown dwarfs. Brown dwarfs are stellar objects that are too low in mass to be able to have nuclear-fusion, the process that happens in stars. So I figured, I'm pay tribute to the very much ignored brown dwarfs. :P

DAY 83 - March 24, 2010
MEDIUM: Pencil

Dear incosiderate people who do not know how to park your vehicles,

I understand that you might be in a hurry, but so are many people that know how to park in between the lines. Just a friendly remind that your carelessness is an inconvenience to others.


The person that could've been parking in one of the spots you are taking up.

DAY 84 - March 25, 2010
TITLE: Smokey
MEDIUM: Charcoal, pencil, and Ink

For my friend's party last week, I did my make-up in a way that a lot of girls in Japan are rockin'. I was trying to recreate it this afternoon, but it wasn't quite working in my favor, so I decided to do it on paper instead.

That's all for now. Everyone, enjoy your spring break. I definitely will and hopefully, I will take that time to refocus my energy into something constructive.
