On another note, I decided to start up my LiveJournal account. Let's see if I can keep updating the damn thing. Here is the link. Enjoy.

Your mind is a firestorm - full of intensity and drama.
Your thoughts may seem scattered to you most of the time...
But they often seem strong and passionate to those around you.
You are a natural influencer. The thoughts you share are very powerful and persuading.

I thought it would be fun to pick out our favorite posters from out birth year. And I think it was a bad idea. Because they all suck, and we were basically all born in 1985, for the most part. But since I have nothing to do, I will post the ones I thought were digestible. In no particular order.
Man With One Red Shoe: Simply strange that its one red lonely shoe illustration, and the lace is lit like its a bomb. It caught my attention right away, and really stands apart from all the other posters in 85. I am not sure how well it tells the story of the movie, but it is intriguing on some level.
Breakfast Club: Not sure if its because its one of my favorite movies of all time, or because it moght be a good poster. But what I can see, is that its a great use of actors, each of there poses reflects the character clearly. I'm not to hot on the title treatment. The thicks and thins of that typeface puts me off.
The Color Purple: I really enjoy the illustration and the type of purple it is against that sun in the window. The title treatment doesn't distract from the intensity of the imagery, but yes its visible and clear. That fonts seems to pop up a lot in the 80s.

I have had a long freakin day of work and school, and in that long day alot of minor interesting things happened. One of them being my epiphany, and that is that a Gray Papaya Hotdog is the only quality thing under a dollar. What that has to do with art is entirely up to you. Anyway, those are the sketches I did in my society madness class. A class about the history of mental illness and its influences in art. Sounds like something i would take eh?

My friend Jarold and I are making a toon based on the comic Laz and I used to make a million years ago. Its an XFiles parody of ridiculously stupid proportions. Look for it soon.

I decided to get Painter IX, and play with it a little. Its pretty fun, and a genius program. I don't think i have enough memory in my computer right now to handle it well, or maybe its my tablet, thats about 20% the size of my screen. Or maybe its me, I dont have patience to re-color something Ive colored twice already. Its also complex, lots of brushes, strange layers, and I am not familiar with all of them yet, but I hope to get there. The oil paint system is great though. If anyone wants it, let me know.
