Ahoy! Time for my yearly update! Apparently.
For whom it may concern, I am currently in exchange program in Prague until January.
Have been here since September. It's beautiful, as if I need to say, and I live right near the river.
School had a slow start, I hope it will change soon and I will actually be doing something.
Some lingual challenges, but my fellow classmates are really nice.
And lastly, beer. So much beer.
The weekend after the next I will go to Pixel (computer graphics and animation conference, in Vienna). Really looking forward to it, it looks great.
School started. Had to battle an ant infestation, barely slept, got sick, almost broke my glasses, fell behind in homework. Great first week!
Meh. Just need to get through today.
In other news, our RATS fundraiser is two days from ending, check it out if you haven't already. Thanks!
Hello fellow RATSketeers, if you like the art I've been doing for the RPG - RATS!, about the true masters of the Earth, and\or you like the idea behind it (or in front of it), then you really should visit our fundraising campaign at Indiegogo. It has more cool art by my fellow artist Yan Clayman, it has a cool video I made with cool voice actors and cool music by Peter Merom, it has more cool info about the game by author Uri Kurlianchik. It also has cool perks and stuff for contributors, but really just visiting and maybe spreading the word would be just awesome!
I've been working non-stop for the last couple of weeks putting this fundraise
Jeez. So my first year at Bezalel's Animation Dept. basically ended.
It's been awesome and hard and awesome (hardsome).
I won't do an elaborate conclusion of the whole thing, I do need to study for one last exam, but it's been truly amazing and I love my classmates and their sick minds.
I wish I could bother submitting shit, and not just update twice a year, but it's been a little hard to catch my breath. I'll try to gather all the good bits from over the year and overload you all with my shit soon.
Hopefully I'll manage it better during next year. If I won't, you're all welcome to ride my ass about it.
Next I would probably want to ret
Greetings humans and abnormally large insects in trenchcoats (you know who you are).
A bunch of things have happened. Most difficult of which would be my little brother being hospitalized for about 2 months some time ago. He's doing much better now and I'm very proud of him.
Most exciting would be that I got into both places I applied to for school next year (my 1st and 2nd choices), which means I will be studying at the animation department of Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem next year, and it also means I will be moving to Jerusalem. I'm very proud of myself but also feel immense gratitude to my friends (old and new), my fam
Okay, my three years have ended, as of today I'm a freaking citizen. I have the right to fuck up to a larger amount without getting penalized by the law.
I can grow my hair and ridiculous child-beard to whatever extant. I can quit a job if I don't like it. I can act like a total maniac and run over a 3 years old. Right? That's legal. They aren't really people.
Yeah anyway, I'm thinking this will sink in a bit later. Maybe tomorrow, when I wake up two days from now.
Had a hard few weeks... kind of exhausted. Not really waiting to deal with real world shit right now. Will probably put that off for a little forever.
OkAY - couple of weeks till I finish my army service! And I'm on vacation until then.
Had a blast this week at Icon (a sci-fifantasygeek fest). Saw a bunch of movies there, met some peeps, played really funny games.
Scott Pilgrim rocks HARD! It isn't perfect, but it reaches critical, sometimes hazardous, levels of fun. Also I recommend the comic for anyone who enjoys fun.
So what's next?
What does the future hold?
Will I revert to my child-like old self? Will I bloom into a beautiful butterfly? Will I from here on live solely for the moment and consequently get arrested for pyromania?
Well I don't know old chaps. I just don't know.
It's late.. this is gonna be ranty.
I'm not thrilled about the new dA. Some of the features are nice, but indicate a direction which is away from what attracted me to this site in the first place.
Just a few points:
-The restricting of deviation proportions - I get it. You wanna go all hi-tech, to make dA totally accessible on a mobile phone. Personally, I didn't sign up on here for people to be able to look at my works on their phones, large sized screened as they may be. I signed up to have a gallery that could showcase my works as best it can on a computer screen where, I feel, it can be properly viewed.
It used to be so that the artis
