Marks

It was the marks that reminded me, Making it only six days Til you had to be put back. On the edge of my bed, In your shirt and someone else's socks, And cold hands. There were too many hours, And too many marks, Like the marks on my skin. No clean getaway, just Dirty failed distance, marked By blood and salt and six years. Six years of blue tack, Five pence per photograph deals, Nights like this on the edge of my bed, When you would hold my hand.

... A Daily D? How sweet! What could it be on.. A photograph, a manipulation, a painting, a drawing? No? No, it's a collection of stupid faces (http://jakkar.deviantart.com/art/FacExPro-or-Rubberface-Jack-185791924) I pulled for chronicdoodler (https://www.deviantart.com/chronicdoodler)'s excellent reference compendium of facial structures and emotional expressions. How very motivational. People are looking at my work! This makes me wish I had something more relevant/recent uploaded. I'll have to fix that, as soon as I have a few permissions from those features in recent manipulations/commissioners of painty stuff. Would anyone like a photo manipulated into something more inter

I'm working on paintings for an excellent horror author, and crafting a rather grim comic. It's good to be moving again. Anyone want anything painted, anything written, anything critiqued? I'm usually here, craving something to challenge me.

End of another

End of another

Hard to ignore the passage of time when locked in suburbia. I'm lucky to be able to forget the time and the day of the week, still, for I've yet to be employed for money or on any regular schedule. Where am I... New friends gone. New contacts gone. A new friend, with promise and problems. Essentially, back at square one, like every year. Fading out of gaming/game design for the simple impossibility of finding sane and competent compadres with an interest in making games for the love, not the money. Motivation is at particular low-point. Rarely inspired, rarely producing even the briefest scrawl. There's always potential, but I'm still not

More the last bucket-kicking flinch of the lower leg, but hoping to regain my mind and learn to create things again... It is good to know someone cares ^_^
Just wondered. Almost drew your snail again the other day.
It'll happen. Eventually.
