I suspect Spews will become sparser now that I've got a real person art job. The spirit is willing to blarf up art morning, day, and night, but the flesh is prone to carpal tunnel, tension headaches, bleeding eyes and aching joints. I'm finding I need to be economical about time spent in front of a screen or sketchbook (hence my complete absence from dA this month, sorry), my body seriously is just not having these daily eleven-hour art marathons.

Haha, but I can't help it. I get home from work and all I want to do is buckle down in front of my own computer and pick up my own projects. I think it would be ruinous to my growth as an artist and well-being as a person if I were to stop making art for fun as well as work, so it's nothing I'm giving up. Ever. Oh, the curse of doing for a living the same thing you do for fun. ;) I'm not complaining at all, honestly. But I do need to change the way I work before I hurt mahseeelf.

Woah! So many awesome ideas here! The picture of the elderly cat, elephant, and turtle having tea was too cute. :D

Is it weird that I like the unfinished sketches more than the finished paints...? ._.

Ha, it's ok! If I didn't feel the same I wouldn't stuff my doodle dumps with them as I do. There's something just pleasant about loose pencil stuff, I have no idea why that is. Maybe it leaves more up to the imagination?

I dunno... Whatever the reason, it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. In my brain. :>
But then, so does surfing through other artists' galleries.

I love that Jackie the pirate found a place to stick her ipod. :)

I think I was going to comment on other things... and then I saw the one at the bottom and everything else flew away.  I love it.
Daily Weekly... heehee.
