Fish leaving planet earth, for the second time. by longestdistance Constellation cactus. by longestdistance
Wisteria teapot. by longestdistance

In case you're wondering about my recent artworks, here's what they all have in common: They're magical still lifes. (still lives? I dunno.) I call them the Small Delightful Things. I want the viewer to question the work and ponder why I combined these objects together.

I'm taking senior thesis, and this is what I've chosen to pursue as my body of work. It's great because I'm making personal artwork as I please, and it also counts as my class work. I plan on making some simple 4x4" illustrations as well. If you're wondering, I will keep drawing people as well, just not for this particular series of sorts.

I've had a few people ask me about commissions and I say I'm busy with class work. This is what I am busy with, and I am happy to share it with you all! I might possibly open commissions after I wrap up the semester, but no guarantees. I still feel like I haven't made enough artwork for my class, and I really need to hunker down. Each pic takes like 20 hours so there's only so many I can make, but the smaller ones don't take as long. I'm looking forward to sharing those as well!

Thank you! I'm having a lot of fun with this. I probably won't make any 'big' artworks for a bit, but these smaller drawings are a lot of fun to work on too.

Ah, so that's it. Honestly, I never questioned anything because you have a habit of making abstract pretty stuff. Also, I've been mentally exhausted for the last four months.

Glad to hear you're having fun with your thesis! You really have pumped out some real gems (pun intended nyeh heh heh) so keep it up!

Thanks Jacob! I feel like I haven't been drawing as many people as usual, but that's okay. I really enjoy what I'm working on now. :D And sorry to hear that. You know I'm always around if you need to talk.

Thank you Kim-cat! Yeah, it really is a win-win situation. I usually feel so guilty when I indulge in personal work. XD
