Another Blog.

I've just created another blog.  I have a terrible habit of starting and starting and starting and never finishing.  No, rather, I continue to set up finish lines but don't make any effort towards crossing them.

I'd created the blog for another purpose, but what the hell, I can't let snatching up that blog name go to waste.  So, I've canceled one project not even half an hour into it.  And then've started a new one.  One whose finish line is set... nowhere in sight.  Welcome to Grandpa's Violin.  Sometimes I wonder whether using Blogger over Wordpress is a good idea.  Anyway, I had intentions to make a diary blog but in my narcissism decided to scrap that.  "Grandpa's Violin" is the one Yuki Kajiura song that my dad recognizes.  Well, if you haven't heard it yet, please do so now.  I'll wait patiently.

I'd originally planned the title to be based off of my favourite song "Winter" but the theme was too general.  Everything from "handinhand" to "darknessofwinter" was taken.  What i could get was "throughwinter" or "thruwinter" or "middleofthewinter".  Now, Through Winter isn't such a bad name for a blog, but Grandpa's Violin--now that evoked some real emotion and antiquity.

I sure wish i had a Grandpa with a violin.

Merry Christmas!

December 25th, 2009  Yay Christmas!!  The year is also almost over.  Unfortunately, I've gotten sick over the past few days.  Not sure if it's poor sleeping habits, an infected tooth, or both.  I've come down with three dis-eases: a toothache, headache, and the chills;  they always seem to come together.  Anyway, here's what I've been slaving over.  Christmas cards!

These hand-made ones have been taking my time away from Anime LA convention preparation.  They take so long to make!  I've uploaded a couple at DeviantArt #2.

Winter Break preview

This winter break, I've decided to work on some fanart for Anime LA!  This will be my first time staying in an Aritst's Alley, and hopefully my first time cosplaying, so I'll be both nervous and excited!  Here's a sketch of Miku.  My plan is to have three paintings, one each of Hatsune Miku, Lal'c and Nono, and Ayanami Rei ready for the convention.  Time to get to work!

Figures Week 11?

Either Week 11 or 12, most likely eleven.  Anyway, on to the pictures.  Maybe some sketches coming up in a post.  I'll have to quickly fill the sketchbook up, and post the best scratching and scribbling i've done in my most recent.

Ugh, sorry about the bad lighting.

Figures Week 10

Week 10, the 4th of November 2009.  Is it just me or does the conte not go well with the paper?  Dangit i accidentally used flash on the first image.

Figures Week 13

Catching up on some old posts.  Stuff must be so unorganized now.  Week 15 was skipped for an Interactive Media showcase.  Awesome work being done by the students here.
