Arr! Me Hearties!

So, aparently, September 19th was official, International Talk Like a Pirate Day. I almost completely missed it! R Stevens over at Diesel Sweeties had been talking about it a couple times but I guess it just didn't click. It wasn't untill I saw an article in the newspaper about it that I was like, ", i mean ARR!". Everybody mark your callenders for next year, this is a holiday that deserves celebrating.

One Down

Yay! My first project for animation is finished. I’m hoping to ink and color it when I get it back. The catch is, I won’t get it back until the end of term at least, maybe even end of year and by that time, hopefully, my skills will have improved to the point that I won’t want to anymore.

Out of the Gates Running

I’ve now completed my first full day of animation. I had to do a literacy/mathematics test, which was of course, lots of fun. I’m very confident that I passed so that’s not a big deal, but just the fact that I had to do a math test. Math! Yuck! Hopefully it’s all done for more then a while.

I’ve already received my first assignment, due Thursday. I’m to do a background, no stipulations, no rules, whatever I want. I always have a problem with projects like that, it seems like I have so many ideas and then I can’t decide on one. So much of my time is spent thinking about what I’m going to draw, nothing actually gets onto the paper. Here’s hoping for some decision making power.

To finish off, here is a picture I drew at work during the summer.

Happy Days are here again!

Hooray for the end of summer! The end of work, and the start of new, better, and more fun work. So long Supper Store, and bye bye Blockbuster. It’s only a temporary reprieve of course, but one I’m more then ready for.

Starting Monday I’ll be going back onto my drawing regimen, at least fifteen minutes a day drawing for myself, on top of everything I’ll be doing for school. I noticed very dramatic improvements when I was doing this in June and I can’t wait to get back to it.

On that note, here’s a little thing I drew between customers at the Supper Store.
