i have known about doctor who for ages. i never saw enough episodes on our old pbs station growing up to get and interest (plus, dad would always change the channel 9.9)

ken always loved the fourth doctor, and his favorite character was k-9.
i got him an action figure on k-9 one year, but i never looked into the series myself.

i was glad to hear the show had come back, but i always want to start with the beginning...
yeah, that's gonna be hard to not only find episodes of the first doctor, but to sit though them.
in any case, [personal profile] kotaotan  has gotten me hooked to the new series, and i'm slowing branching out with the old. i'm going to start with the second doctor instead. he looks much more approachable.

this one didn't take as long to draw as the spanish inquisition, but i'm thinking of making prints of it, too. 8^)

i still have tons to draw before megacon.
at least i have my tickets.

this skit never fails to crack me up.

the idea was to create some art for megacon next month.
i started off with a sketch card and ended up with a more detailed piece.

i plan on making prints of this one to sell at the con.

i know, took me forever to post these.
since this was created at a con and i lacked access to a scanner, a crappy digital camera pic was the only way i could record my art, since they now belong in the private collection of others. i've done some editing to try to get it looking right, but my apologies if it looks crappy.

i was initially disappointed by how blurry the looked, it discouraged me from posting them in the first place. hopefully, photoshop has fixed that, or at least made it tolerable.

my external HD is dead and a lot of art i hadn't gotten around to posting, not to mention all my webcomic files, etc, is gone; unless it can be retrieved off the drive.

this is one of several pieces that i neglected to move to my external. yay for files that have survived!

i didn't make too many art cards, originally planning to have them for cons this year, but it looks like i won't be able to go to any. there is always next year.

i managed to sell quite a few of the custom art cards this time. 8^) real happy about that.

Collage/Mixed Media

having a blast "art-ing" as [profile] girlwithoutfear's place. i really seem to get creative juices flowing while i'm there. brought home a haul of collage materials from work. just stuff the boss was going to throw away: rub on letters, zipatone letters, scraps of amberlith, rubylith & vinyl in all sorts of colors. much fun stuff.

"What Society Does to Girls"
created Sept. 25, 2006
Collage/Mixed Media

[profile] girlwithoutfear invited me over this past monday for some "arting." she had discovered artists creating on a trading card size format, (3.5 x 2.5") and either exchanging, gifting or selling the creations.

it's hard to see, but those are red foil stars, kinda like the one's teachers use when grading papers and such.

ever since [personal profile] jocelyncee's wedding, i've found myself itching to collage and found this a fun opurtunity to do so. heck, i even found myself including some socio-political commentary. i hardly ever do that with my art.  guess i'm overdue.

i've been busy looking for work in big cities, such as kansas city, putting out resumes, going to work and visiting friends. i think i've done all i can do and learn as a designer here in arkansas. i must go elsewhere to continue to hone my skills.

i'm also in the process of packing up what i own and deciding what goes into storage. by the end of october i'll be leaving elsewhere, but not too far away.
my apartment has become too costly for me. i had thought i was moving home with dad but now, i've got a decision to make.
this past sunday, ken's folks touched me with their genorousity: they offered to let me live there, rent-free, until i found work in another city. when ken's sister's trailer is renovated, i could move in with her they said. it's located right by the house.
so, i have to decide whether i move in with them or go back to dad's? i'm torn.
i don't want to be a burden at either place...i think ken's folks feel obligated to look after me. before he lost consciousness, ken's speech started to slur. they think one of the last things he said was "take care of kathryn for me."
my eyes teared when i was told this. i just don't want to cause trouble i suppose, so i must think this out.

both would be temporary (i hope) until i can move on...i'm in a transistion period. i can recognize that now. i used to take these matters to ken and get his view. he was so down-to-earth and had great common sense. i miss his feedback, amoung many other things. his laugh, the way he pushed his glasses up his nose, being able to rest my head on his shoulder...

still grieving. doing better, but i came to realize something. after losing someone like ken, there is no true healing. i won't wake up one day and be like i was, but i can learn to live with it and go on. scar tissue on the soul, to paraphase madeleine l'engle.
time doesn't heal all wounds. that's a lie. however, it does make it easier to bear.

i think ken's advice on dealing with the grief would be to do more art. must make more time for it inbetween packing and whatnot.
sometimes i think i think too much, other time, too little.
