I was a poor poor art student when I decided to start a blog documenting the process of my paintings, photography, drawings and journaling. Now a recent art grad, not much has changed other than the label and maybe a change of scenery.

my reality vs. actuality

recently i've wanted a studio space with lots of natural light (grandiose windows). not sure why that is, since i'm out of bed at 11 am and don't really start being productive until 2 or 3 pm. after this time, i proceed to procrastinate to start the creative process until i "feel like it". those who know me, know this. they also mock me about this, but i can't fault them for their acute awareness of my habits.

i'm the type of artist that can't start working usually until after dinnertime. like 6 or 7. preferably when it's dark out. and when no one else is around. isolation, yes, that is key. and normally when it's fall or winter, the cold drives me inside to sit, look and think. but now it's winter, and i don't go to school. i go into a garage, or lay on my couch. the atmosphere has changed, and so i must acclimate to this.
