Even though I rarely post anymore, I still must wish everyone a Merry Christmas and of course share 'the banner' for the 12th year in a row.

It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on...

Again I must apologize for being MIA on LiveJournal, but I could not not post this and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. I do hope you are all well and that this season has treated you nicely. I also wish the very best for 2014 for everyone as well. I still love you guys a lot, even if I've been a shitty LJ'er and LJ friend. You're more than welcome to drop me a line any time here, on tumblr, or my facebook.


Oh, and happy 11th anniversary to this banner! ;D

I'm a shitty LJ'er and a shitty friend. I am sorry. How are you guys? I need to come back here more often and just post stuff. Tumblr's fun, but it lacks some qualities that are here.

I've started a temporary 'portfolio' site if anyone wants to look at it/follow it. It's tumblr, but until know how to work wordpress (which I hear is easy) and get my ducks in a row you can see my work there.

I'm done second year at school... yeah, second year, one year left (maybe) and then I'm graduated. Kind of scary. I have an internship/mentorship with  a very talented and renowned illustrator this summer, so I'll get some hands on guidance and feedback. I mean he was one of my teachers last term, but he's only taken on 4 of us and we'll be able to pick his brain more.

Some more stuff under the cut, please be warned it may be a bit TMI.

I am Iron Man...Collapse )

I do apologize for not being on here much any more and keeping up with you guys. I need to change that.

Anyway, I hope everyone is well and is having or will have a nice Christmas. All the best to you and yours. My family is just doing the same thing; dad is over for the night and we'll do Christmas morning together then he'd off to his new girlfriends for dinner and mum and I go to my Aunt and Uncles for dinner with everyone.

The past few months have been super rough on me with school and just the pressure of it all. I had 14 final projects due in one week, so that was fun. Still I managed to scrape by with either A's or B+'s, so the hard work, mental breakdowns, severe depression and anxiety, and lack of sleep was worth it. Maybe. LOL Either way I'm glad it's over with for now and I can slack off until the 7th when I have to go back. Right now I'm going to try and relax and enjoy Christmas.

A big 10th Anniversary to this banner! :D

*taps mic* Is this still on?

Yeah, I've been a terrible LJ'er and LJ friend. School (and tumblr, and Avengers) have pretty much taken over my life. I honestly cannot believe that I haven't updated since July, this is the longest in 10 years of having this journal that I haven't updated it.

Things in point form because things in point form always seem a lot better (maybe, IDK):

- in August I went on a road trip down to seaside Oregon and Seattle with my dad. We went to the Seattle zoo and I got to feed an elephant. Her name was Bamboo and I got to feed her bamboo.

- School started and since we're almost all digital this year I have some new toys:

My new 27" iMac they give us (but technically our tuition pays for it all) and the 24" HD Wacom Cintiq. The Cintiq was a huge investment (these things are not cheap), but ultimately it's what I wanted and what I need to further myself in my career choices. I had thought about getting one for a couple of years and decided to take the plunge.

- School is kicking my ass as well as everyone else's. The workload is just... yeah, we're putting in an average of 60 hours a week right now and it's only going to get worse. I've already had one breakdown and I'm sure there will be more to come.

- Having said that I am enjoying most of the classes I'm in. Digital typography is a favourite and our first major assignment was to do a portrait of someone completely in type. So of course I chose Loki because the Avengers and Tom Hiddleston continues to ruin my life.

This was the final outcome and mine was picked (along with seven others) to be blown up to about 4'x6' and displayed at the university.

- One of my illustration assignments consisted of Robert Downey Jr (and a pet, so I chose a cat because he really is a crazy cat lady).

- So pretty much my life since August 27th has been school, volunteering on the weekend, school, sleep, school, working on school stuff, school, sleep, and more school.

- Mum and I may be getting kicked out/evicted again, but we don't know, so that's an added stress for sure.

I haven't even touched my FL so I've been really out of the loop. How are you? I really need to get back on here more and stay in touch.

You're more than welcome to follow my tumblr: my art tumblr where I post my artwork and anything else I find pretty.

I'm also on instagram under the name gingerbunnie if you want to add me there as well. :)

For the first time in... well since I started LJ (aside from being on vacation) I haven't checked my FL in about a week. I'm a shitty friend, I'm sorry. :( If there's anything you want me to see just post it here.

Since last Sunday I've been taking care of one of my classmates cats and her apartment. She went back east to visit family and asked me back in March if I could do it, so I am. I spent last Wednesday-Sunday at their place, just chilling and doing my own thing. It was nice because it got me away from mum and felt a little like a 'mini' vacation.

While I was there I did get my entry for the We Love Fine Marvel Villains Design Contest. After a lot of confusion about whether I could enter (the TOS said US only, but people from the site said it was open to the world... IDK) I did a last minute drawing and submitted everything. Tom Hiddleston is one of the judges and him getting to see some of my work is all I want. I just want him to get a kick out of my designs as well, so that's good enough for me. Winning anything else would be an added bonus.

Anyway, here's what I entered:

If any of these make the first cut and to voting on the site, I'm just going to spam the hell out of everyone to vote for me. >:D

In other news I am going to be going on a road trip in August to Banff with my dad. He got a new car a few months ago and his vacation comes up while I'm out of school, so he wanted to go on a driving trip. I haven't been to Banff before, but I hear it's beautiful. I just have to plan our route and he can take care of the rest (money, LOL).

Today I turn 28. I have no idea how that happened, but I guess it just did. LOL Anyway, I'm having a good day so far and will be seeing Avengers again in a couple of hours. I can't think of a better way to spend my birthday, hot men in leather and skin tight suits.
