Ladies and gentlemen, guys and gals, boys and girls, dear children and my esteemed watchers.
Well this is another fine mess of a journal where I will make up excuses for my horrifically inadequate submission rate. And the funniest thing about it is that I was actually hoping to have more time for art, but obviously the life just said: “No”
Therefore here we are again with another one of these journals. Oh boy oh boy.
First of all I can’t thank enough to all the people who kept on watching my works and all the new watchers and all the people who were giving me favs, comments and llamas and whatever else. I can’t thank you all enough. I will try my best not to fail you all and I hope you will enjoy my future works as well.
Now to the matter at hand. Some of you know that I have been in Mexico on a student mobility for the last half a year and it has been amazing, fun, weird, hard, lot of things to do, lot of study work, presentations (God, I hate making Power point presentations) and so on. So there was not that much time to dedicate to drawings and paintings, but I have gotten a lot of inspiration and worked on the Cxema story that I had unfinished for a looong time now. Then, when I got back from Mexico at the end of June I had to deal with all the university return requirements, write my report and etc…another administrative nightmare, plus get my old room at the dorm, do all the paperwork and exams just so I can continue my master’s studies. And then, finally I could enjoy that bit of summer that I had left. I am not going to lie to you guys, I probably had enough free time to finish some smaller works, nothing grand or ambitious, just some little drawings but I have not seen my girlfriend for almost seven months and I missed her birthday and our anniversary so I wanted to spend every free minute I had with her. Plus I wanted to take her on a vacation, just the two of us. We went to Prague and it was awesome.
But back to the DA stuff. Now I am back at my university and I have finished the Cxema story and even made a Wordpress account (alerazz501.wordpress.com/) so I can properly publish it for your reading pleasure with the illustrations included in between text like a proper horror story. It is a short story and a first so expansive that I had ever written so if any of you has any ideas, feedback, corrections, critique, suggestions, gripes …anything, please let me know. I would like to get better at writing and this would really help. The entire story is done and I have finished the illustrations for the second part and I hope I can submit it before Halloween Unfortunately I won’t be able to finish any more work so no spooky Halloween specials besides the Cxema. Sorry guys.
But on a side note. I have been to a fascinating first time event here in Czech Republic called Creepycon. It was a first year and it was pretty much made possible thanks to a few dedicated people and a group of fans who made it happen. It was on a small scale, but it was lot of fun and truly a unique experience and I hope to go there for next year as well I got to hang out with amazing artists and cool people like www.deviantart.com/jacqueline-… and I even had my mask finished and used it there Well it is Mark I. and it needs few tweaks here and there but it was functional. A bit hard to breathe in it but oxygen is overrated anyway
Also I have met two of the coolest weirdoes ever, who were working there as photographers documenting the entire thing. They were so much fun that we have been hanging out the whole three days, and once when we were waiting for a bus at 4:15 in the morning, we got attacked by raining books!!! Seriously, there were no tall buildings around, we were just at the bus stop, middle of nowhere and a book fell from the fucking night sky!!! What in the actual fuck? That was just so surreal that we could not even believe it. If anyone has any explanation for this phenomenon please let me know. By the way, the book was “The island of the thousand jewels” by Mirko Pašek 1964. Good book, I kept it
Anyway, here is their page, they make great photography and are young aspiring photographers and they deserve more recognition, check them out. : www.zonerama.com/mentixproduct…
And here is their photo album from the Creepycon if any of you want to see how it looked like:
Plus they also asked me to pose for some of the photos in my own cosplay of an obscure artist known as Alerazz501 Look mom I am a model! Are you proud of me?!!
Thanks guys, I hope to see you at the next Creepycon
Alright, that would be all from me. I am sorry for the lack of works but life is as always complicated, but I will try to submit works more regularly and respond to all your comments and such J
Thanks to all.
