My art folders have been a bit of as wilderness in recent months (years) but when animated Power of the Daleks finally comes out I expect I'll be posting some of the backgrounds here. Roll on November.
Just a heads up if you enjoy my illustrations, I also write music, any genre I feel like having a go at but 'soundtrack' compositions are probably my favourite. I have uploaded a number of compositions to youtube (you can find me under my username Harnois75). Also I like to give cover versions a try occasionally so you'll find an eclectic mix there too. I have a Facebook page for music compositions and covers called 'The Dark Room'. - https://www.facebook.com/harnois75?fref=ts
Amongst covers there you will find original compositions like my impressions of James Herbert's novel 'The Fog' in the horror genre and few pieces under the title Snea
I see that last time I put in a journal entry it was mostly about depression. Well, I tried a couple of anti-depressants during the last year. The first one worked eventually but it messed with my brain for a few weeks to start with and left me feeling very ill and disorientated. Some side effects stayed throughout so I decided to come off of that drug even though friends saw a definite improvement in my mood.

The change was subtle and I wasn't rea

Problem is it's a self perpetuating problem: when you mix with upbeat optimistic people in can be kept in check, a healthy dose of dry humour and cynicism balances things nicely, but if you start feeling you don't want to mix, or you don't see friends as often as you'd like you start becoming a little bit too self possessed.. you start gravitating towards things that make
Well, unfortunately I've done very little art in the last six months. Only one art job. I think I'd like to gear myself towards concept and production design as it might be more fulfilling, and maybe better paid (well it couldn't be worse paid) but whilst I know some people in the field it's difficult to find a way in with little actual experience. I'd need to up my game too looking at production art. I think I have good design ideas in me but implementing them to the required standard means learning some new techniques I think. Somehow I haven't had time to do any creative art for a while, and feeling disillusioned with it doesn't
