Don't talk to me about life.
So I'm not really around much. Working and being social will do that to you. But I am apparantly going to be in a gallery show in a few months so I need to get my ass into gear and make some stuff. I have a few ideas but so little time, and so many other things to do (laundry, anyone?).
So not that anyone cares but I might be back. Maybe. Or maybe not.
Well, okay, not really. But it's midday, it's essentially over. Except for all the returns in the next week. Phaugh.
Hey, so, like, I've been drawing and stuff. Somehow, when I neglect to sleep, I draw. How 'bout that. Loaded some stuff, cleaning up more.

Yeah, so when I moved back to Portland it was supposed to be the start of this amazing drawing art kick kinda thing? Yeah, didn't happen. So now at the end of the summer (Really, be honest, it's fall, it's 40 °F out) and 8 months after I'd moved in, I finally set up my scanner and scanned less than half of what I'd produced. Yay! The other half still needs slight touch ups to be scannable. Somehow, when something is 80% done I lose all interest in it. Makes it a bitch to finish anything.
If all goes well, I'll continue to finish stuff, scan it, and load it. But I'm not holding my breath.
I fear I understated, in my previous comment. Your work is absolutely brilliant, Tess.
-Makes me want to sacrifice even *more* sleep, so I can finally put up something decent!
<so ashamed... T.T>
Thanks for the inspiration, and the simple pleasure of seeing your gallery...
You really are amazing.
