General Update 3/13/09

Happy Friday the 13th Everybody!!. Well, my goal is to make this the luckiest day ever since all my bad luck seems to have been spread out over this last week. From the Xbox dying to me yelling at my boss at the day job to major misunderstandings and downright stupidity on my part with everybody else, I’m not having a very good week. So, the purpose of this entry is to talk about nothing but the good things that have happened this week.

Red Lights of Death: UPDATE. Well, the Xbox is winging it’s way back to Planet Microsoft and I hope to have either it fixed or a new one sent to me in two to three weeks. Really looking forward to having it back. I never realized how much I relied on it until it was gone. Everything from DVDs to streaming movies to.. well, games. Since Josh and I don’t watch TV other than CNN and Stupid Criminals, the Xbox was our only viewing medium. :sigh: well, it will be fixed soon and all will be well.

Package from Chan. My friend Chandra sent me a lovely surprise yesterday. I had asked her to pick up a copy of her cousin’s book (Peach Fuzz) for me at MegaCon and she sent it along with a print of one of my favorite pieces of hers. :sniff: It made me so happy and brightened my day when I opened the package and saw that print. Isn’t it beautiful? :hug: Thanks Chan!!

Time for sketching! I got time to do some sketching yesterday at the day job! Yeah Me!! I hadn’t been getting the time I wanted to sketch random doodles and things lately. Usually I would get interrupted by phone calls. You know, what I’m “supposed” to be doing.  Well yesterday was kind of a slow day and there weren’t many people in the office so I was able to get this picture out. Since I haven’t scanned it yet, I’ll describe it to you. It’s a full body shot of a female robot kneeling on the ground. She’s not completely put together with various parts of her anatomy missing (mainly the arms) and she’s hooked up to wires hanging from the ceiling. She’s slouched over with her eyes closed.. most likely because she’s not activated yet. I’m very proud of it because I used absolutely no photo reference for it. Usually I like to view a picture or a model while I’m sketching, but this one I really wanted to push myself and it turned out beautiful.  Currently working on another piece, I think it will be the same figure, just from a different angle, and with arms.

Ok, that’s all for now.

I think I met the girl who did Peach Fuzz a million years ago back when I lived in Central FL. I think she's also half of a husband/wife team.

As for the pic, brilliant print. What size is that?

The print she gave me was 8.5/11". She has them for sale on her DA account and I know for a fact that she will have them at SDCC this year. :)
