"But spring came bearing sunlight
Those persuasive rays
So I gave myself
A few more days"
This is probably my current favorite song by Bright Eyes. The weather was just perfect for some intense Conor Oberst-listening today.
I'm super busy lately... I have quite a few requests all lined up so I'm trying to get them all done without rushing myself. And at the same time, I'm working on that album art that I've been talking about for the past few posts. Right now I'm just doing some mock-ups. I don't want to say the band in case they decide to go with someone else (I'm mentally prepared for the worst...)
If you're interested in commissioning a drawing from me, read this entry here.
And check out my new Spider-man bobble head! It's adorable! It was an early birthday present, and I absolutely love it. (:
So now I have a Spider-man tissue box, a Spider-man bobble head, a Spider-man pencil case, and a Spider-man Mr. Potato Head. Because you all obviously care... haha.
Real post soon. Maybe...maybe NEVER.
(Probably on the weekend.)
Forget What You Know is by far my favorite Midtown album. I lost my copy last year, which sucks. There are two reasons why I didn't just buy another copy. 1) I'm poor and 2) It's really freakin' hard to find in Canada. Sigh.
I bought two new waterproof/fadeproof pens with metal tips. I've been having problems with felt-tipped pens, so hopefully these will be better. I've never purchased pens from this company before (Uni-ball) so if they end up sucking, I'll be pissed. They were $3.20 each. I have no drawings to post since all I've been doing lately is sketching and sketching and sketching ideas for pieces for the art show. I don't want to spoil the surprise; you'll see 'em all when they're done ;)
I just bought tickets to see Streetlight Manifesto and The Swellers on January 30th. My exams end the day before, so it will be an end-of-semester celebration, I suppose. It's been more than a year and a half since I last saw Streetlight... it should be fun. I also got tickets for The Gaslight Anthem in March. The date worked out perfectly, I'm so glad. They released one of my favorite albums of 2008.
Oh wait, I lied about having nothing to post. My bad, my bad. I drew something in math class on friday! Inspired by "Landlocked Blues" by Bright Eyes. One of my favorite Conor Oberst songs, ever. This, and Nothing Gets Crossed Out. Maybe I'll draw something for that in the near future... Anyway, here's Landlocked Blues (:
If you walk away, I'll walk away.
First, tell me which road you will take.
I don't want to risk our paths crossing some day.
So you walk that way, I'll walk this way.
Alright, I'm out. Thanks for taking the time to check this out. Have a good one! (:
