Wow...

So here I am...for those who even care. It's been 2 years since I've written anything here, and it's so funny to go back and read all my old posts. I'm such a different person now, and seeing the things that I wrote about and cared about in the past, it's hard to imagine why they felt so important to mention publicly. I guess having a place to express our ideas give all of us a rather grand sense of self-importance...

It's even more funny to see my last post and how different things turned out than I had imagined they might. Let's re-cap.

-I THOUGHT that I was living in West Hollywood because the girl that my ex and I moved in with said that it was so that we would think it was "cool"...but I've found that we were actually living in Los Feliz.
-My ex that I moved to LA with broke up with me 5 months later and moved back home...leaving me alone with no friends and more bills than I could afford on my own.
-I've moved twice since then, but have been living in Silverlake for over a year now, and I love it.
-I don't work for a videogame company, but I'm now a managing editor and illustrator for a new magazine about Art, Fashion, Film, Tech and Food in LA. It's awesome...a lot of work, but awesome.

I have a lot on my mind, and I sort of feel that even if there's no one that cares to know about it, I'd still rather put it out there than keep it to myself. Maybe someone will learn something from me. Maybe not. But as an artist, most of what I do is an outward expression of my inner self, and so the idea of a personal journal that no one will ever read just doesn't make much sense to me.

Enjoy, or don't, but if you weren't at least a little interested, you wouldn't have read this far...

XOXO

Wow....

It's been like a million years since I've been on here...  I now live in West Hollywood, and am trying to get a job with a videogame company.  Just moved a couple days ago and thought I had a job lined up at a local Wal-Mart, but they are proving to be rather difficult to get ahold of, and keep ignoring my phone calls or just telling me to keep calling back at a later time.  I'll figure out something though!  I'm just glad I'm finally here.  It's time for my real like to begin...

So in illustration we're illustrating book covers. I chose to do "The Old Man and the Sea" because I knew what it was about and there wasn't like anyone else doing it. I left an area in the top left and bottom right for stuff like the title and the author which would be added later if I were doing this for a publishing company. It turned out pretty well, and I'm sure I could do something to it...but I can't for the life of me think what else to do to it...and I don't want to do something and ruin it...so I guess I'll call it finished...

Three Ways - The Wallflowers

There's 3 ways out of every box...
Crawl out the bottom or you crawl out the top...
There's 3 ways out of every, every box...
And if you can't find your way out,
Then you just burn it to the ground,
And then you disappear, like smoke...into the clouds...

I hate being addicted to the internet....

...knowing that I'd rather sit here and WAIT for "buddies" that I've never met to get online so I can pretend like I care how their day has been, and to wait with bated breath for a new email or Myspace message or friend request. Checking IGN 5 times a day to see if they've posted any new gaming news or to see if I missed anything the last time I checked it. Logging in 20 times a day to Hi5, Myspace, Facebook, or any of a million other stupid websites that I've been hooked into because if I don't reply to everyone's messages they might think I'm an asshole or I might miss the opportunity to meet someone that could potentially be "the one." I don't imagine it will happen that way, I figure that the person that is meant for me is waiting somewhere in the future when I get the chance to actually go out and meet people the normal way...yet I can't help but keep checking online. It keeps me up until...I think it was 4 last night? Well, more like 3:30, but I was up until 4 anyways because I wasn't tired and I freaked out and thought I lost my wallet, but went down to my car and found it... And then there were like 5 hours between the time I went to bed and the time I got up, and I thought perhaps someone had already sent me a myspace message or an email...but I was saddly mistaken. So then I'm sure I went and sent some people some greeting-filled messages in hopes that maybe when I got back from my first 3 hour class someone would have replied to one...how sad is that??? I guess it's less sad and more disgusting...

Story to cure Alex's bordom...

i hear tell of a story of kings and swine (not so nice people) taking place many a snow fall ago. a tale i dare not speak aloud, but which in the confines of this chat window might not seem so unseemly. it is a story of king Leodre and his desire to own every candle his empire could supply him. flame sticks were stole from peasants and rich alike...none were left their nightly eyes, but instead were left blind and in darkness...but one being chose to stand against him...

this being was none other than the fairest of lightning bugs...Telli. "I can no longer be made to shine where there need be shine...I am tired and grow weary...something must be done before I soon depart to an untimely burial."

so she made here way down the treacherous path to the kings castle...fought day and night down dirt path, through sheets of sleet and snow...until she found herself gazing in awe at the upward reaching towers that found no end as they spread themselves to the highest reaches of the sky...

she knocked once, twice, and a third time...to make sure her presence was known to all who might need know she was there...and straight away as the grand doors swung wide, she marched right in without glance or gaze toward those allowing her entry...

she marched straight into the king's chambers and beseeched to him her request. she explained well her plight and the urgency and severity of her situation....

the king, whose faced gleamed wet in the faint candle light, wiped his tears and entrusted every candle in his stoney fortress to her care...and she was allowed to distribute each to whomsoever she deemed was in need....

having done so, she was finally able to rest knowing she'd never have to light someone's way for as long as she might live...which was only a few more minutes because she had cancer and it had spread so quickly that it killed her the instant she fell asleep...the end
