Car Crash, Book, Shoots and FeaturesNEWSCar Crash, Book, Shoots and Features2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Without going into the circumstances I think it would be fair to say that 2012 was the worst year of my life in many respects. I spent a lot of December reviewing things, and considering how a lot of my problems were of my own making, that I'd become a 'victim of my own bullshit' as the saying goes – and begun to let people mess me around, which I wouldn't have tolerated in the past.
So… lots of resolutions were made, a new stronger proactive me was ready to roll in 2013, and then four days into the new year I smashed my car up… great start!
Thankfully, nobody was hurt (in fact no one else was involved) but the hassle and problems it's caused me seem to have taken everything back to square one.
So time once again to toughen up, fuck off some of the negative shit in my life, and get 2013 back on track!

So I just received this note to my inbox here on DA:
"David you are a blessed young man with TREMENDOUS talent ppl can only hope to aspire to but a spirit that has been hurt by so many ppl over "who you are". If u trusted and believed God like u say you do then trust Him when He says youre sexuality is not okay. u get scared because you dont know howw to"get rid of it" but its a spirit, i garuntee you. A member of a local church i know of had been delivered from that homosexual spirit that plauged Him for years!!! You may think it cant be done but if you believe in Jesus Christ and have accepted Him then there is NOTHING He can't do!!I say this with all the Love in my heart. God wants to bless you and turn you into a message for lost souls all around too^^"
How lovely it is to see that people hid their true thoughts behind compliments and smiley faces...

It's been like forever and a day since I last updated here, and I've been meaning to do that for a while. Every time I look at my page I'm like hmphh...I should really update that journal...
But I finally have like, a little bit of time with no business plan to write (though a business plan presentation to make is still on the list) and other miscellaneous homework and college things.
Speaking of college, today is the first day of my last week of college and then I'M DONE! Heavy drinking will commence starting Thursday night and throughout the weekend until I have to enter real life again and work. I'm bittersweet excited about this week. I can't believe I'm graduating. I remember sitting in a class like 3 years ago and hearing that it was someone's last term. Feels like it was yesterday. How has time flown by like this? This is insane.
The bright side is I'm gonna have like all this time (hopefully...ideally) to sit around and contemplate life and like - OMG - DO ART!?! I am

Top Seven Mistakes Made by Aspiring IllustratorsI wrote this thing. If you want to repost it on your blog or journal, please credit me with: Article by illustrator Kristina Gehrmann - www. mondhase.deTop Seven Mistakes Made by Aspiring Illustrators2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Selling yourself as a beginner
I found a prime example of this in a forum for artists seeking work. The thread title was „Starting-out artist looking for a chance",, and the thread told that the artist is „looking for a client for whom I may draw" and has „just graduated from art college".
We all were at this point once, but usually it takes too long to realize that „beginner" is the wrong mindset, even if you are one. Such statements sound like excuses and are guaranteed to weaken your position. Don't make excuses. Do not justify your work, and do not justify your prices. This is a tricky habit to acquire since we're not very confident by nature, but remember the image you wan

The Grey in this City...It creeps into every little corner, every curled-up warmth, every carved-out resting place, every ragged crevice. It rasps in my throat and it gasps when I wake and it chokes when I fall and in every way every single day is coloured grey.The Grey in this City...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
'And the grey in this city is too much to bear'
And it weighs so heavy and my shoulders ache.
But every heartbeat, every crash of the drum makes it mine, shapes it, takes it, funnels it into a bottle and stoppers it. Down in one and the devil's on your back and in your veins, or maybe you're in his. And the damage is done and the image was never sacred and just watch how quickly you are no longer forged in wrought iron and starlight, how quickly you are cast in low plastic.
Where's the ache that shaped the shadows and placed the light with such care? Where's the firelight and the cold deep dark?
I will not live just to grow old.
These hands are not content, no leeching grey thoughts will stop them when they choose to build.
Wonder in a heartbeat and w
