Updatedafter chatting with a friend, I have spent a couple grueling days updating and revamping my website. Now operating more like a digital resume/portfolio, it's up and running.style-wise I've tried to go very simplistic and tied in with my RedGear line. It will encompass all of the costumes, apparel, and prop-like things like my articulated hand or wings that I am opening up for commissions.http://www.machinistartistry.com
the joys of theatreYou know, sometimes working with clients really sucks. It seems more and more people think that we can produce huge amounts of work in no time at all, that they can take all the time in the world to make the necessary decisions, but we have to be supermen. I'm currently working on a show where the director was forced to promise that she would at least rehearse for a week and a half before tech, so that we would have even that much time to create everything.Of course that didn't happen.Instead she starts 6 days before tech and over those 6 days doubled the amount of set items and tripled the costumes that she wanted. Then, she was surprised and whiny when it wasn't all ready for the first day of tech. Luckily for us the first performance was canceled and we gain another week to complete everything, but sometimes I really wonder what wires got crossed in people's heads that they don't see the problem with what they're asking. Oh sure, less time more work no more money, we'll just pull

SchoolSo it's month 3 of my sojourn back in education and I am exhausted. I absolutely am loving being able to draw and design all the time and I'm noticing improvement in my work. But between keeping up on homework, all the extra work the teachers want you to do, and working so that i can still pay rent (thank god for parents and grandparents) I'm surprised I'm still standing.who know that drawing for 11 hrs a day could be tiring? lol.I am enjoying things, and will probably be posting some school work soon, since that's the only work i have time for right now.
Time rolls onSo I've decided (and been accepted) to basically change careers and enter into the world of animation. I'm going back to school in september and we'll see where that leads me. It's a bit of a "bwaaa what am i doing" moment since I'm giving up an entire career with a good position and steady pay for a pretty unknown outcome. But here's hoping it all goes well.
PoorWow, my main job (assistant technical director) has gotten really busy lately and of coarse the pay doesn't grow with the workload. I'm finding less and less time and energy to devote to art, which is very frustrating for me. not to mention finding myself feeling more and more broke.Is there anything other than rich and lower class anymore. it seems like middle classes have been obliterated. no one i know feels comfortable or debt-free.oh well, back to the grindstone
Devious Journal EntryFeeling a bit of artistic slump right now. I feel the need to do something, comics, drawing, painting. But I cant think of what. have a bit of the artistic block.ah well, maybe i'll work on some character design

Please Listen.I just got an email from a concerned parent. Her daughter has an account on DA, and apparently she copies and traces my drawings. I looked on her profile and confirmed that, yes, she did trace and gave minimal (sometimes no) credit. The reason her mother messaged me was because a few people were apparently sending her harsh messages asking her to give credit. She even got a few death threats.Listen...I'm going to say this all again because I guess it needs reiterating: When it comes to my art, I do not mind young artists copying or tracing my drawings in hopes of developing their skills, or because they are still learning the way of things. If you see someone posting a traced or heavily referenced drawing that does not mention the original picture, please DO NOT immediately jump to aggression. If something like this (art theft/style theft) really gets on your nerves, then I understand why you might be angry upon seeing it, but you must find the maturity to take a breath, and

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
