I'm not posting too much here anymore, if anyone has figured that out over the the past 3+ years.  I have a new blog I am frequently updating with photos, art and thoughts: http://visionsofpigeons.blogspot.com/ and my website is still at: http://acephalous.xepher.net Cheers!

X-posted on my LJ Okay: is it just me, or is anybody else sick of see James Jean draw/paint nothing except children with no faces? Don't get me wrong, I idolize the guy. His painting technique is incredible and his life drawings are the ultimate that I aspire to. But seriously... For the love of God, draw something else! His child paintings are my least favorite. I feel like a lot of his older work (before he got into this blank-faced youth phase) is a lot better than what he's producing now. Yes? No? I am very curious to know what other people think about this matter, so let me know!

It's been a long time since I've said anything here, I know. The year went well, despite the fact that I was really busy (as always).  Engineering is... ehhhhh yeah.  Takes up a lot of time. Anyway, I was in Beijing, China for two weeks in May.  It was an awesome trip and I learned so much about the people and culture there.  It changed my perception on things in a way that I don't even think I fully realize yet.  I've posted a large chunk of the photos I took online here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ileum/ , a few of which I've submitted as deviations here. I'm taking a figure drawing class this summer, so expect some sketches uploaded h
