Wow, thanks heaps for the recent birthday wishes, everybody! It kinda blows my mind that people would still bother to do this considering I haven't even uploaded anything for two years. That's really awesome. Thank you. Really.

I've hardly been doing any art at all for such a long time. Every so often, I finish something and am reminded why I love (or used to love) drawing, but I can't seem to keep at it or find a steady momentum. Even though right now I have a number of unfinished projects, I only work on them very rarely. I do miss losing myself in art. And music. Music because it goes hand in hand with my creative processes. I want to do so many things. I have so many ideas. I just don't seem to find the time to do it. But life has been very full for a long time which has been amazing, but doesn't leave much 'free' time.

Anyway, thank you to everyone that still looks at my (old, now) art. And thanks to those, too, that leave encouraging comments about wanting to see more. It does not go unheard.

I wish everyone happiness.

So last night I fell down some stairs. Well, I don't know if you'd call them stairs, but three little steps. And now I can't walk. Both my ankles are in a lot of pain and are a little swollen. It makes me laugh, though, because I have no idea how I even managed to do that. I'm generally not a clumsy or uncoordinated person, but one second I was up and the next, down, hurting. Although I am unsure why my ankles hurt so much because as far as I remember it was my actual body that took all of the fall. Weird. I wish I could've seen myself so I could have an idea of WHAT actually happened. Plus, I'm pretty sure it would have looked freaking hilarious! Haha. So I guess I'm going to spend today doing as little moving as possible. Hopefully tomorrow I will be more mobile and in less pain!

So, the moral of this story is to be careful how you tread. :)

For the last week or so I've been working on a few different pictures. One of them was about five minutes from completion but as I was saving the file, my computer or Open Canvas crashed and now my picture is just one giant page of white. I am SO freaking annoyed/frustrated/sad about this! It looked so good. And was so excited to show people. *siiiigh*

But before I start again, if I start again, because I don't know if I have the heart, is there any way to fix the file? Or reverse it a little? I tried saving the event file and playing it back to hopefully stop it somewhere earlier on in the works but it won't play due to some error. I just thought it might be fixable because in the preview window when you open the file, it still shows my picture, just a slightly distorted version, but when fully opened, in OC, it's just blank.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

Well, after another three months of travelling, I am back home! I can't say I'm that happy about it. I was not ready to leave Asia. But, what can you do? When you have no money left, you kind of have to head home.

I ended up spending most of my time in the Philippines and I have to say, I LOVE that country. I had the most amazing time there and can not say enough about that place! Filipinos are awesome, awesome people and I hope to be back there soon.

Anyway, I have a few inspirations and ideas in my mind so I hope to update soon with some new art.

Hope everyone's well!

Peace out.

Well, I guess it's time for my six-monthly journal update! How does time go so fast?

I'm in the Philippines at the moment. Having a great time so far and hopefully that will continue! Here in Manila sitting in a rooftop common room of a guesthouse/backpackers, smelling barbecue smells, drinking beer and listening to the approaching thunder. The people here are awesome. Been having some cool conversations.

I am convinced that traveling is essential and everyone should do it! You learn so much about everything and learn more than you thought was possible.

Hope you're all loving life!

NOTE
I am sorry but if anyone tries to contact me I will be unlikely to give a speedy reply.

Hello DA world!

I am still alive. Still existing. Still having adventures.

Since my last entry, there have been some changes. I'm actually overseas at the moment. Currently I'm in Vang Vieng in Laos but I've been around Thailand and Cambodia for the last two months. I've seen so much and learnt so much and it's all been amazing. What I'm really happy about, too, is that since being in Laos, I've been drawing A LOT. More than I've drawn for probably the whole year! It's nice to be in touch with that creative side again. And hopefully it will carry on whenever I get home!

Anyway, I just wanted to briefly update.

I think it's time now for an evening stroll through the streets and a beer or two.

:D

Wow. I seem to only update this journal in six month blocks.

I actually kind of miss being active here. It was really fun back in the day. Now, it just seems like I don't have much time to sit and interact with the DA world. Which does suck. All you people were so inspiring and really pushed me to produce art. Maybe that's why my art has kind of slipped away? Or maybe it's just really because my life has been so awesome lately that I've been completely preoccupied with having amazing adventures and have no time to do much more than sketches.

I'm still so passionate about my art and art in general, though. I was absolutely transfixed by a show about tattooists and tattoo art the other day that once it finished all I wanted to do was draw. And I'm always analysing in my mind art and colours I see around in life. So, I dunno, maybe I can kick myself into gear. I'm actually pretty inspired by life right now and have a couple of muses floating around. Hopefully my creative juices will flow.

Also, it's awesome to note that I just clicked over the 300k mark! Who'd have thought that would happen when I first signed up! This is amazing, guys. Thank you so much for watching, commenting and loving my art. It really makes me happy.

Lastly, I'm currently quite obsessed with the band Machine Gun Fellatio. Anyone much into them? I think they have such a sexy sound.

Well, that's it for this round! Be good!

Well, we're nearly a month into the new year and I hope it's going along well so far for you all. I had a really good year in 08 and I'm hoping 09 is just as good if not better!

I am a bit down and stressed at the moment, though. I have to move out of my unit because the owners want to renovate. I've been trying to find somewhere else to live but have had no such luck yet. At this stage, it looks like I'll be moving in with some friends which is good, and really awesome of them to have me, but, I dunno, I kind of enjoy sharing a house and getting to know strangers. *shrug* We'll see how it goes.

I have a number of things I'm working on at the moment. I really want to try and finish these pieces so I can put them up here! I'd really like to be much more active here and with my art in general. My art has kind of slipped away a bit. I'm still drawing often and I still love it, but I'm not really completing anything. I still have a million ideas.

I'm also working on a website for my art. I've had a couple in the past and I'd really like to get one up and running again. Just so I can have a proper, online, personal portfolio.

Hmm... what else? I love summer? Summer is the best time of the year. Hot days, warm nights, daylight savings, chilling at the beach, seeing the city come alive... I love it!

Be happy, peeps. Enjoy whatever you do.

Hey Dudes and Dudettes!

I have nothing much to report but I was so sick of seeing the last entry which is now 7 months old.

At the moment I have a crazily sore throat which really sucks! It's constantly painful.

Nothing much else to update!

Hello peeps!

Guess what? I actually have permanent internet access at home now! It is very exciting after only have sporadic internetting here and there for 2 years! So, what this means, is that hopefully I will be much more active here.

I don't have much other news. Lately I've been drawing a lot for people in my life. I did a few chibi caricatures of my friends for Christmas presents and now I have so many people requesting drawings! But I love it. It makes me happy!

What else..?

My brain is in constant turmoil. It thinks far too much. But hey, that's nothing new.

Umm...

I think I have nothing else of importance to say!

:heart:

P.S. I'm aware that none of that was particularly interesting!

So 2008 is already on it's way!

I hope that this year I accomplish a bit more artwise. Much more than last year anyway.

I hope that this year I accomplish a lot. I hope I head on my way.

I didn't make any resolutions because they're never kept.

I just want to be happy.


I hope everyone else is happy and the year brings you good fortune.

I went to see my favourite band a few nights ago. I'm still hyped up about their show. But I can't talk about it with anyone, because no one I know even knows who they are! It's rather annoying. I have been greeted with many "Who are they?" comments when I've tried to express my excitement.

Their show was fucking awesome, though. AWESOME!! The set list was great. Just about all the songs they played I love. And the lighting and colours and stuff was amazing. And Matthew is a genius. Seriously. I love him.

And Plug In Baby at the encore was gold.

I can't even express how freakin' good it was.

*sigh*

I'm still coming down. I feel sad and just wanna be there again. Why are things that are awesome so hard to forget about? Next time they come I'm buying tickets in two states goddammit.

Arrgh!

I love you, Muse. <3 <3 <3 <3

Hello everyone.

How are you all?

I still have no internet so I'm still harldy active here. For this reason and your own sanity, please don't email me or leave me notes with questions that you want answered quickly. I just can't check and respond properly. Sorry about that.

Have fun.

Hello everyone!

My friend just got an account here and I am pimping him because I said I would. He is a bit of a photographer and has a few nice snaps.

GO LOOK!

:iconstopthatdingo:

In other news, I'm sort of working on FFXII chibies. I hope to finish some soon. I don't think I'll do all of the characters just the ones I like. I've started on Vossler and I want to do Balthier, Fran and Basch. So hopefully I will have an update soon! :3


Oh, and thank you all so much for the 200,000+ hits! It is so very appreciated! :heart:

Just wondering if anyone could tell me what the name of the song is for the background music in Paramina Rift? I quite enjoy it.

Hello!

Just thought I'd post something here seeing as I haven't since New Year's!

Well... I maybe have some things I can update with. At some stage. I really haven't been that productive, though.

Hope everyone's good.

Cirque Music Help

Fri Dec 1, 2006, 1:09 AM
KiteHeader

Because I'm still all into Cirque du Soleil, I was watching the Alegria DVD the other night and there are a few songs on there that I noticed are not on the CD soundtrack. And I really, really like one of these songs and was wondering if anyone had it somehow as an mp3 and would like to send it to me?

I have no idea what it's called, but for those familiar with the show, it plays during the act "The Flying Man" (the guy 'flying' around on those springy bungee cord things). It has a vocal to it and the lyrics repeat a lot and are something like "Mayumba... mayumba ei ya..."

Failing someone having an mp3, is there a way to extract audio from a DVD and convert it to an mp3 file?


If someone gives me this song, I will love them forever! <3

~~

In other news, I actually finished a picture! And I'm working on another one so I think I'm FINALLY over my very long, long drawing drought. At last!

So yeah, expect an update artwise soon.

And I think that's all!

Peace out!

I just got home from seeing Cirque du Soliel's show Varekai, and OMG, it was the best thing ever. I loved it. It was soooo good. The colour, the music, the skill of the performance... I just want to go again. Right now. ;-;

I might do some fanart or something because I'm definitely inspired! Perhaps the twins... or Icarus... or the singer. (I love him)

Arrgghh! I want to join the circus!

Hi everyone!

Just a little update because it's been SO long.

Simply, I am okay. Everything is okay.

I really hope to submit something soon. I'm still finding drawing difficult, but since browsing around here, I am really inspired to push myself to actually finish something.

Hope you're all going along swimmingly.
