Goin' To The Beach! Hey hey! [15 Jun 2006|04:23pm]
[ mood | excited ]

So, I'm going away for a week... to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina! I just hope I won't be overwhelmed by all the obnoxious country music and such (I'm really not a fan of the south). I'm looking forward to relaxing on the beach, swimming, playing games, going to a waterpark and doing yoga (I know, I do yoga every day, but it's cooler on the beach).

I'm putting my Riku/Sora pic on hold for now. I'm still sticking to my goal though. I will finish it by the end of this month!

Ohhh... It's so sad that I have to leave my kitties. I'll miss them all so much. I hope Janie doesn't stop coming to our house while we're gone At least they give me something to look forward to when it's time to go home. Nyeh... but then it'll be time to start work on the farm. Poo.

So long, for now! See you in a week! ^_^

Watch out for Pencil Stars [13 Jun 2006|08:41am]

Virgo

Due to your supreme skill at an obscure video game, you will be abducted by aliens, and asked to save their race from annihilation at the hands (roughly speaking) of evil creatures from between the stars.

O.O ... Maybe I should stop playing Katamari before it's too late...

Yum is water! [12 Jun 2006|08:01pm]
[ mood | working ]

Boy, did I miscalculate... I figured this drawing would take me two days to color, at most. It's almost been a week! There's no way I'm finishing before I leave for Myrtle Beach. At least I'm satisfied with it so far. I want Riku and Sora's costumes to be as close to the original game art as possible. My new goal is to finish by the and of the month. (How sad.)

Water is yum.

Edit: We Love Katamari. Yes, we do.

Crazy Critters [08 Jun 2006|07:18pm]
[ mood | complacent ]

This morning, I saw this gray squirrel in our neighbors' yard and I noticed its tail was unusually yellow and light. I watched and waited for it to come closer. Eventually, it hopped all the way to the kitchen window where I was standing (almost like it knew I wanted a better look). Its tail was very full and a beautiful strawberry blonde. It also had a small brown triangle where the tail meets the body- beautiful! It was just weird because its body was gray, like a normal squirrel (only, maybe a bit lighter). I guess it might have been half albino? Well, after I examining it for several minutes, it hopped away and I haven't seen it since.

In other news: a skunk was trapped in our garage last night. Poor skunky... u.u

I see a little silhouette-o of a man -Scaramouch Scaramouch- will he do the fandango? [07 Jun 2006|02:00pm]
[ mood | blah ]

Rainy day...crap. All I can do is sit inside and work on coloring my Riku/Sora pic. At least it gives me a lot of time to finish it. Maybe I'll even finish today! O.O

I got a medical card in the mail today... it was issued to "Cobly Krolak"-- That's Mr. Cobly to you!

Thought I'd give this quiz a whirl...

Instructions:
1. Put your music player on "shuffel".
2. Press "forward" for each question.
3. Use the song title as the answe to the question (even it it doesn't make sense). NO CHEATING!

Read more...Collapse )

Some of those worked out pretty well! Some, not so much. But, hey- it was something to pass the time. Now... back to coloring!

Video killed the... Colby star. [06 Jun 2006|07:14pm]
[ mood | frustrated ]

(Sigh)... I've been working on getting my Kingdom Hearts video to work online all day. I must have tried loading it on my site 100 times. Needless to say, I finally got the hint that it wasn't ever going to work. So, now I'm loading it on Yahoo!Video. It's processing now... it's been processing for hours. I hope it works.
I was also hoping to finish my Riku/Sora pic today- but (since I was so busy with the damn video) I haven't even started coloring it yet. (Sigh again)... maybe tomorrow.

The Brain, Donald Duck, and King Julian walk into a bar... [05 Jun 2006|08:51am]
[ mood | high ]

Hey- I took this character quiz thingy a while ago. To tell you the truth, I don't know where it came from, so I can't say "stolen from so-and-so"-- I just took it from Blair. Anyway... first you make a list of your 12 most favorite characters (randomly). Then, you insert the characters' names (according to their number from your list) into an interview/questionnaire thing. The result is prettyfunny. So, here it is...

The Characters:

1) Phoebus
2) The Brain
3) Sora
4) Dagget
5) Donald Duck
6) Pepe Le Pew
7) SpongeBob SquarePants
8) Norbert
9) Goofy
10) King Julian
11) RJ
12) Klonoa

Ahhhhh.....That was fun.

Here we go again... [04 Jun 2006|03:59pm]
[ mood | bouncy ]

Ta-da! I've returned to my journal! It's been a loooooong long time, no? Much has changed since my last post. You see, I've been using a paper journal (which I will still be using, hopefully). I decided to return to livejournal for its communities and whatnot. So, to summarize the past--wow-- year... I'll list what's "gone down", as it were. I can't believe it's almost been a year. Hah.

1. Turned 18... pfft.

2. Dropped out of The Joe Kubert School. Thankfully, I discovered I was NOT heading in the right direction. While I still love cartoons (and love drawing them), it's not what I want to do for a living- just for fun. I want to focus on fine art (painting, drawing, sculpture...) and study wildlife art. Yay, animals!

3. Searched high and low for the right school to apply for. This took me a good three months. Finally, sometime in late November, I realized that the school Blair is going to, duCret, is the perfect school for me as well (perfect for aspiring fine artists and illustrators)!

4. Was accepted to duCret. Huzzah!!!

5. Finally got back into playing Kingdom Hearts and finished it. Woo-hoo!

6. Got Kingdom Hearts II and finished it. Boom!

7. Fell in love with the Kingdom Hearts games. It's true, I'm obsessed now. I'm drawing fanart, making videos, reading fanfiction-- it's sick (hehe- not really). I'm especially fond of the friendship between Sora, Donald and Goofy, and the love relationship between Sora and Riku. Kairi isn't worth my time =P

8. Started taking care of a stray cat. She lives on our deck now. I named her Janie. She's the best cat in the world!

That's it I guess. After I dropped out of JK, I started working-- then I stopped. I've been spending my days doing yoga/pilates, drawing animals and cartoons, playing video games, and kid stuff like that. Life is good.

'Tis all for now. I have to get back in the groove of updating. I think I'll post more later. S'long fer now!

I'm free! I'm free! [16 Jun 2005|04:25pm]
[ mood | ecstatic ]

Whoo-hoo! This was my last day of high school! Okay, I have to make an appearance on Monday in Adv. Digital Imaging Thesis to say "good bye" to my teacher... but that doesn't count. After that, I'll never have to step foot in that school again! Haaaaaah! :-D

Last night was awards night. I knew I was getting the High Honor Roll award, but I was surprised with a few others as well. I got the awards for "outstanding achievement" (otherwise known as "the most successful student award") in Adv. Sculpture, Adv. Digital Imaging Thesis (that one wasn't much of a surprise, actually ;-D), and Art Major (this one was quite an honor, I must say!) So, as you can imagine, I was beaming all night!

What a fine year this was. I'm proud of myself. Now I'm ready for a nice relaxing summer. Then it will be time for... Joe Kubert! Whee!

Too Hot to Hoot [14 Jun 2005|11:43am]

Cooling troubles in Cedar Hill School call for an early dismissal for all Bernards Township Public Schools! It seems like just yesterday, I was hoping snow would get us an early dismissal. Ah how time flies! ^__^

Would you like some cheese and crackers? [10 Jun 2005|03:14pm]
[ mood | rejuvenated ]

The art show went very well. The Art Major and Photo Thesis students all got great comments. I was overwhelmed, hearing such nice things about my Art Major display. I had a great time and so did Mum, Pop, and the notorious G-Ma (I was showered with compliments!) It was simply a wonderful evening that I shall never forget.

I got my yearbook! I'm only in the senior photo section and in a group photo of a bird's eye-view of the senior class in the formation of '05 (In which I'm at the upper left-hand corner of the 5, peeking out from behind someone, just barely in view... quite funny actually). Oh, and under my picture, in the senior photo section, it says I was in Asian Club during Freshman year--- I'm Asian? Huh- you learn something new every day. ((It should have said Art Club))

Only one more week of school! Oh me, oh my! ^_____^

Do the Shuffle [04 Jun 2005|09:26am]
[ mood | excited ]

Dear goodness! Could it truly be? Only two weeks left of school? Yes, it can! I'm such a genius, I've gotten all A's all year long- so now I'm exempt from all finals! Huzzah!

I'm so excited! The art show is on Wednesday. I get my special two-panel display dedicated to me! I've been waiting for this ever since Freshman year! I'm gunna dress up all fancy like to celebrate! So far, it looks pretty good. I'm crossing my fingers and
hoping everything goes well.

One last note: I got an iPod shuffle for my graduation present! I love it
soooooo...... ^__^

The Prom I Didn't Go To [20 May 2005|02:56pm]
[ mood | okay ]

What a long week. Mother dearest is probably moaning over how her trip is coming to an end. I have little sympathy for her though; seeing as she just spent a week on a cruise ship in the Bahamas... the lousy bum.
I think I was one of the only Seniors in school who didn't leave early to get ready for prom-- No, sir. I won't be attending prom-- I had fun in Art Major, all by myself. It was very peaceful! ^_^ It's too bad about the weather though (rainy and a bit windy). Most of the Seniors that go to prom go to the shore for the weekend... doesn't really look like the weather is going to be very kindly.

Yay! Senior skip day means a three-day weekend for me! Huzzah!

Luck Ducks [13 May 2005|03:11pm]
[ mood | good ]

Holy cow! It's Friday the 13th? Hm... nothing bad has happened. Nothing bad really ever happens on Friday the 13th- unless, of course, you make something bad happen- but that's not bad luck, that's just stupid.

Mother's going on the cruise this next week. Lucky duck... I wish I had a rich best friend that could treat me to such a... treat (I'm too tired to bother with vocabulary today). It's her birthday present. What a gift! Ha! It makes me say... ha!

Oh, God! Lost is getting so good! I can't wait until next week. But arrrg! It's the last one of the season! What am I going to do with my life until it starts up again? I think I might have to go to Sydney, Australia, fly to California, crash on the way there, and run from "monsters" until the season premier. Sounds like a plan.

I have to check the bus schedule to Dover. I know I can use the train, but it's be much more convenient if I could ride the bus there instead (cheaper, faster, no stop, etc...)

So that's that! Until next week...

Grandparents Cas and Mary are coming for the weekend... Mother's Day. Arrr... I have no money! What am I supposed to get Mother? Cards aren't really worth much... ohhhh.... damn.

It's been a long week. At least the year is moving along. I think I'd kill myself if it were still April! Warmth is my savior! Hahaha!

*yawn* I want to go back to sleep...

A Picnic in the Park [28 Apr 2005|09:29am]
[ mood | excited ]

It's been a pretty good holiday (so far). Looks like Blair and I might go picnicing at the park today, since it's pretty nice outside. That'll be delightful! ^O^

I got an e-mail back from the senior graphic designer of WWF responding to the poster/bookmarks I sent in. He said he really liked them and that he'd like to talk to me about my designs and plans as an artist. I called him a couple days ago and, to make a long story short, it was like talking to myself in the future. Turns out he started off as a cartoonist too, now he's combining his love for animals with his artistic talent... for a living (talk about a dream job)! He gave me some really great ideas and we're gunna keep in touch. Who knows, maybe I could end up with a dream job myself one day!

Spring break's not over yet! I've still got today, tomorrow, the day after that and the day after that! O_O

Dada Disturbed [21 Apr 2005|02:56pm]
[ mood | bouncy ]

One more day until spring break! I don't care if I'm not going anywhere- I'm just happy to chill for a whole week (though I'll be reading Memoirs of a Dada Drummer here and there... and I still need to work on some toons for my art major project). This time tomorrow, I'll be free, wearing a sign that reads: "Do Not Disturb!"
Oh jolly day! Tomorrow is Earth Day, one of the best holidays of the year! PLANT A FLOWER at least! I, for one, will be hugging trees and singing to shrubs all day. And on Sunday, at the Great Swamp, there's a special Earth Day celebration that I plan on attending.
I have an itch to do lots of crossword puzzles... as if watching Jeopardy every night wasn't enough trivia for me.
It's been a lovely week; sunny, warm breeze, in the mid 70s to 80s. It's too bad it can last forever... but May is almost here, so we'll be seeing more of it soon! ^___^

Note to self: When you're done with MOADD, get the next Artemis Fowl! (It's weird when you get into a "young adult" book at your current reading level and you grow up as the series continues... you find yourself at 17-years-old reading books for 11-year-olds. Oh well, I'm probably 11 at heart anyway.)

Sick of Smells [14 Apr 2005|02:55pm]
[ mood | giddy ]

So, I'm working on a website to display my artwork. Not that deviantArt isn't good, I just think it'll come in handy as I scan more of my artwork. Once I think I've got enough in the gallery, I'll buy myself a domain name and have my very own website! Huzzah!
Looks like I'll be getting a job at the English Farm this summer (I hope), thanks to Mrs. Jeffery (who told me Mrs. Stout, the photo teacher, happens to be friends with the family that owns the farm). I don't think it will pay much; but it's an easy job, quiet, not too busy, and I'd get to water plants and tend to animals! =-D

*sigh* It's almost Friday. Just one more week until spring break...

p.s. Someone had really bad BO in my computer graphics class. I still feel sick from the smell. Is it so hard to swipe some deoderant under your arms once in a while?
