The Insomniac's Plead
So melancholy, yet too numb to cry.
So lonely and scared, I thought I would die.
Plus, friends are in love, it's sickening, the drama.
Add schoolwork on top, thrice the trauma.
Affection, attention. Please! Any will do!
My future looked bright, but why don't I see You...
With work as my frenemy, life, dry as a bone.
Life feels so heavy, like bearing it on my own.
Not black nor white, or pale shades of grey.
I've drifted in nether, all fading away.
Giving Satan no foothold, pausing only wonder...
What is it in me, that deems me asunder?
(As you can tell, it's omitting my slumber.)
Music, art and laughter once treasured,
now lackluster privy, given low measure.
My life is uncommon, as is the spell.
I only want out of my personal hell.
I'm not giving up, I know I want better.
It's all that I need, aside from this fetter.
I know not what I desire, my brain is that irked.
Will clearance make way, after I've worked?
God, I still trust you, no matter the matter.
Come hell or high water, hurt,

My Reason
Art - A Real Thing
Honestly it's hard to portray what art is in black and white, which makes me wonder if I should've written this in orange ink. But to cut to the chase, I'm not here to educate the masses on what art is. That could go on for so long that C-SPAN and PBS would get jealous. Art is my imaginary friend and I'm here to explain my love-hate relationship with it.
I believe that art is a mindset. I can honestly say that you love art before you realize what it is. Art is everything but art does not mean everything. Beauty is within the eye of the beholder, so what is ugly to one may seem beautiful to another. However, as children of God, Philippians 4:8 states that we must recognize and think on whatever is right, pure, lovely and all that other good stuff. This means that we must do away with our prior way of thinking and learn to see the world - natural or artistic - as God sees it. When your focus is shifted from the carnal, worldly standards to an original godly mindset you

The Importance of Art History
Happy New Year patients! I hope your holiday season was full of fun and family time :D To kick off 2014 in the Hospital I'd like to talk a little bit about the importance of art history. Knowing your historical roots as an artist is not only important for improving your work as a whole, it's important to understand and cross reference the foundations laid for you. During my undergrad (I have a BFA in painting and drawing) my concentration curriculum had a hefty art history requirement so I added an art history minor for the trouble :XD:
There are those out there (even on the University level) who say that art history is not relevant and should not be studied (some say it should even be ignored). I am not among them, and I find the idea of intentionally ignoring knowledge of any kind completely asinine. Some of the biggest misunderstandings of contemporary art come from ignorance of the rich history surrounding it. So let's get started shall we?

How is your Chroma?
As artists we all know that color is our friend, whether full spectrum, monochromatic, or simply black and white. But knowing just how to use this very special friend can be frustrating at times or just downright confusing (trust me, I've been there plenty before!) This blog is for those of us who work traditionally (not to worry my futuristic friends, I'll be writing a blog specifically for you as well!) Here are some terms you need to become acquainted with: chroma, value, tint, shade, and intensity/saturation.
What is Chroma?
Chroma is the Greek word for "color", it refers to the purity or intensity of a color.
What is Value?
Value is the lightness or darkness of a color.
What is a Tint?
Tinting a color means lightening it by adding white.
What is a shade?
Shading a color means darkening it by adding black.
What is intensity and saturation?
This refers to the strength of

Marketing Materials For Artists
EDIT: Well butter my biscuits, some of my gifs disappeared into the interwebs. I'll remedy this soon!
It’s no secret that us artists aren’t great at selling ourselves. The creative process is so much work it’s easy to assume that your work will be able to sell itself. Sometimes it can, but that’s not usually the case. Even if you aren’t interested in going commercial with your career (and there is absolutely nothing wrong with going that route), it is important have professional materials to present to clients, employers and galleries. If you aren’t interested in being “full time” with selling your artwork, I think it would still be good to consider putting together marketing materials as a means of creating good client relations.
This journal will include a number of things you may need in marketing yourself, but also if you are applying to art schools or for various jobs in art. I would also like to note that you d
