Weekly Update: Jan 25-31

quote of the week

“There are no problems we cannot solve together, and very few that we can solve by ourselves.” —Lyndon B. Johnson (1908-1973), 36th U.S. president


Wewt, artwork is going well. I completed three sketches this week, and another painting. I haven't scanned one of the sketches, I'll share that next week. If you have been watching my FA/DA accounts, these are already up. For those that do not have accounts on either site (or don't want to use them for personal reasons), roho and I are working on getting my website gallery back up and running.

current projects

I still have 4 3 commissions to wrap up from MFF, and 3 others that were non-convention related to finish! Making progress! The current painting will go quite smoothly, once I can get the background done, but that's proving trickier than I expected. I am finding pleasure in the knowledge that these commissions are definitely stretching my comfort zones. My next convention appearance is FCN in early April, and I think I might limit my commission offerings at-con to badges and sketchbooks. I reaaaally need to get caught up. O.o

School is going to be insane this semester. Tuesdays are a wash for accomplishing anything but being at class - I'm on campus for 14 hours. I have a 2-3 page paper (rough draft, really) due tomorrow, with the final version due on Thursday.. Environmental Biology is looking very interesting, too. I'll be really really glad when the semester's over.


Flying? Find the best seats! -- I found this while reading an article on Consumerist about the problems overweight people encounter while flying. (I ran into non-moveable armrest problem myself while flying home from Boston) At any rate, I fly fairly regularly, and I know a lot of non-beanpole/long-legged friends do as well. So I hope this is helpful!

Tax Updates for 2009 -- Aimed primarily at visual artists, this had information for everyone! If you are a student, PLEASE READ! The Hope Credit has been updated! (If you don't know what the Hope Credit is, and you're paying for your own education, DEFINITELY read!)

Anyhoo. I need to go write my paper, as alas, it will not write itself. Hope everyone has a great week!
