Journal Entry! :DI figured I should post an entry, considering I haven't before. I'm not sure what to put, so hey. Well, greetings to you, non-frog. Unless you are a frog, then hello frog. I am going insane due to homework, but hey-ho. I can't draw ( well, I can, but it takes a week before I am happy with one little detail) so it is unlikely you will see a drawing form me on here. I might write a short story, I enjoy them, I just need a starting point! If you want me to, you could suggest a story idea, but make it so I can fit it into a short story, as I don't feel like writing a big story. ( maybe in future.. maybe) Anywho I hope you enjoy whatever I do, and have fun, work hard, and most of all, hail Sid The Squid! If you have any questions, ask me, I'm pretty open with people I like And I like science, so if you ask me anything remotely scientific, expect a ridiculously long-winded explanation of something or other. Well, good day to you Sir, Madam or Frog. (Or Toby)(Or Satan)Journal Entry! :D1 year ago in Personal More Like This

TEA-TIME CONTEST WINNERSTEA-TIME CONTEST WINNERS2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Now, the judging and placing got weird because of the entries, so we had to make 3 categories instead with 2 placements plus 1 mentionable with a small prize each. Also, due to certain... things I am facing at the time, some adjustments to the prizes have been made as well. I realized I promised a lot more art than I should have (I'm sure you noticed this as well and GODDAMN I MUST HAVE HAD A LOT OF TIME AND LOVE FOR ART BACK THEN) So I've upped the money-related prizes and kind of lessened the art ones. I have the money, but not the time or anything for art. Though I'm being switched to less hours at my job so I'll probably be able to pick back up on art, soon, hopefully.
I haven't drawn in so long...
ANYWAYS. LET'S GET ON WITH THIS. THIS AIN'T ABOUT ME, IT'S ABOUT YOU GUYS:

"It's a kind of love story. It's two men who really love each other and need each other, and don't even necessarily want to need each other. They sort of drive each other up the wall sometimes, but they're absolutely two halves."

SketchBomb 3 Year Anniversary TONIGHT April 6th!!!Hey Everybody!SketchBomb 3 Year Anniversary TONIGHT April 6th!!!2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Wow... It's been 3 years since I started SketchBomb. A lot has changed while so much has stayed the same. This Month's SketchBomb will be held Saturday, April 6th (TONIGHT!!!). Like always it will be at the Grove at 3rd and Mission in San Francisco at 8 PM http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=690+Mission+St,+San+Francisco,+CA+94105&sll=37.7785,-122.402072&sspn=0.011668,0.01929&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=690+Mission+St,+San+Francisco,+California+94105&ll=37.786029,-122.402008&spn=0.012091,0.01929&z=16 . SketchBomb is an open-invitation to any artist of any skill-level to come out and have a good time and sketch. Post any questions you have in this journal so we can get it all out in the open.
How it works: We usually alternate between timed themes and free sketching and we always have Show and Yell so people can check out everyone's work. This month we'll be doing some raffles and other little activities.

My goodness, I thought I had my message inbox under control..
Thanks everybody for the kind words, watches and favs.
I get asked questions about animation but seeing as alota them are kinda similar
I thought I'd just put it in my journal as a FAQ
What software do you use to animate with?
I use Toonboom animate. Though I'm still trying to figure out how to use it properly..
So far all i use is the timeline and draw stuff in!

Looking for a MentorI'm currently not doing well as an artist, both with practice and education: seriously, I'm not learning anything new and not getting any real feed back. And at the moment I am having a horrifying time trying to find classes and schooling for Character Design and animation both online or in any local places without avoiding signing up for another college and waiting for a year.Looking for a Mentor2 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm not looking for a teacher who's going to give me tutorials with circles and squiggly lines, I need a mentor that will push me, give me homework, practice different styles and techniques, and give competitive critiques. I need someone who will help fix and improve what I have now.
Money is no object at this point, though I hope they are reasonably affordable. Hell, I'll be willing to move out to where ever they work to learn (I'm really tired of Utah).
any takers or suggestions, please send me a note.

I didn't get Rejected... but I wasn't Accepted... I got the worst possible thing any CalArts Applicants
My Application is MISSING!
So all those months and days of struggling with a busy schedule, juggling and stressing work and school, and what I get is a missing applicant. I spent weeks and spent money to go out and fill out a whole Sketchbook with life and nature drawings, just to get a missing application. I even paid $70 to have my Application submitted for the fall semester of CalArts, and you already know for what...
What is my life? Why do stuff like this keep happening to me?
College and life here in Utah has been degrading and getting in my way of my art career. I went to talk to my old animation teacher and he says I've gott
