So since my summer, which is really next week Wednesday through to September, is going to be largely focused on getting my Skullptures website up. Skullptures Unlimited is a kind of project that has stemmed from some of the non-digital art I do. I take things like animal bones (skulls, mostly) and shells and turn them into art pieces. I bought a TON of stuff over the winter off of eBay and essentially will be streaming me creating all the items I want in my shop when I launch it. Because who launches an empty store page? Nobody. So I will be streaming Wednesday-Sunday on twitch.tv/thegriffin88 and the schedule is as follows: Wed-Fri= Regular Artist Radio, I'll be shuffling my writing playlist so you have some epic instrumental music to inspire you or to chill to or do your own art to. I will not be using my mic for this as I am going to be watching tv but obviously don't want that coming through on the mic. The streams are going to be LONG, like 9-5 type streams, so I can't just

So we all know this year has been more fucked than any of my last 32, might be right up there with the Great Depression. But the good news is I started school again! I'm going to be an esteemed Art Conservator! A beautiful mix of art and history and all that stuff I love. But the bad news is that I don't have time to work on my own art. :C So I'm going to take some time over winter break to MAYBE finish a page of Semi-Charmed and start some sketches for other things. But NEXT SUMMER I'm taking off to finish Semi-Charmed #1 so I can start on #2 when things allow. I mean, I might take one course but nothing as demanding as all this shit I've been doing. So I'm still here, I'm just busy as hell.

And I ain't even got a cover or nothin' for this. I'm a hot piece of garbage holy fuckballs. Okay so I've been busy, despite not updating in, like, over a month at least I can't tell time. What year is it even? I'm currently back to school, going to NYU (oh, yes, how prestigious, I'll kill the first person who tells my aunt and uncle I'm enrolled in the school they teach at. NO I DON'T WANT TO GO TO LUNCH WITH YOU I DON'T LIKE YOU! I CREATED FIVE RATE MY TEACHER ACCOUNTS JUST TO SLAM YOU IS HOW MUCH I DON'T LIKE YOU! YEAH THAT'S RIGHT I ACTIVELY TROLLED MY OWN FAMILY!) *cough* So I've been going to school over the summer. This is all part of a plan to finish my undergrad degree, which should take roughly one year given that I actually have a lot of credits they accepted from my other attempts at a higher education. After that, I'm going to apply to their Art Conservation graduate program and continue on to be an art conservator. I've given a lot of thought to this and have a more
