I am trying to get more active here. I will be posting more of my artwork into the groups I am part of and maybe even think about joining a few more groups soon to better share my artwork.
As the title says I am chilling at the office today. It is like 45 degrees in the building today which I think is like only four or five degrees warmer than outside. It is getting to be like winter here in Michigan, which I enjoy. The thing I don't like is being cold when I am trying to work when there should be heat. My boss is trying to save money. Enough about that.
I am still quite stressed from time to time. Not knowing when you will get paid tends to do that to you. I can usually mange it well, but lately it has effecting my life. Mainly I am worried of not getting enough sleep and being a crap around my wife, but I guess that is life.
I updated my portfolio with some work from my graphic design job a few months back.
It is still going well, but this is where most of my stress is coming from.
I still want to add more recent work to it and maybe remove some more of the older works.
was nice and cleaned my office last week before my older brother finally came over to check out my apartment
that I have been living in for a little more than a year now. It was great to see him. He even surprised me with a ZZ Top t-shirt. I can not wait to wear it. Thanks for checking out my journal if any one even reads this. Further down is what is going on with my artwork, story, and even a featured artist section, which I think I will finally get going today. Sorry no thumbnails just links.Helping Plug Friends:
I am back to plug away for my fellow deviants. I am just trying to pass some news in my own little way.
At the moment I am not doing commissions, but several of my friends and fellow deviants I watch are.
So here is a little list of some artists taking commissions:
: Check out his journal for details.
: Check out her front page for details on commissions.
I hope to get more linked up here just have not had the time don't have.
If you read my journal and want to be added to/removed from this list just send me a note.
Still no contest news to pass along.Artwork:
I have art to share, but I have been posting it on my facebook artwork page: www.facebook.com/ArtworkOfKoen…
So check it out and like it if you like my artwork. That is where I have been posting more lately.
The old drawing of Vincent Valentine is hitting the back burner along with many of the other projects I had going. I may or may not finish them. Many of my projects I had going I just lost energy for so in the meantime I have been working on new projects. Besides my new projects I am working on I feel are more important at the moment and can push me artistically.
I am getting into doing vectors more and more. I hope to keep learning new things and pushing myself. The current vector I am working on a Shelby Cobra and the rest of the classic cars for that project. Then later I plan on a DMC DeLorean.
I hope to get around to sketching regularly. I have been really bad at keeping with this, but it is so critical to practice drawing more and keep my skills sharp. I also want to get into maybe trying some ink washes again. I am thinking a Punisher ink wash fanart would be fun. Story:
My story is moving along slowly still. I am still working on Chapter Four.
It is becoming a long chapter. I hope to work on it sometime soon with my art projects getting more of my attention lately.
I finished reading William Gibson's novel Neuromancer, which was a great read.
I would like to get more into his next book, but I have been busy reading the second book in the Wheel of Time series, which is taking a long time to read between everything else I do.
Also, I would like to get back to reading comics again since my setting deals with
people gaining super powers. I have read a few Spider-man and Punisher comics.
I am thinking of reading through my Gen 13 and Catwomen comics.
That is about it for now.Featured Artists:
A few artists I have really enjoyed their artwork over the years.
Check out the links to see some of their art. Enjoy.
Wow. Just noticed I have featured two of these artists before.
Oh well, I guess that just shows how much I like their artwork.
Thanks for taking the time to read my long journal.
