Will you be able to see this or do you have to click the link
I guess you click the link. anyway it's a familiar feeling for me... why does that make me feel heartless saying that? like I've let feelings of people i knew die with the fading memories. At the same time however, if you (reader) are familiar with it as well perhaps you could relate to the relief of letting those old struggles lie and rest. And really it doesn't have to mean it's a severed feeling like that area on your body previously cut with nerves nonoperational, perhaps a friendship blossomed.

on another note, I've thought up a new metaphor/ personification: she is a coral seed, floating in this enormous sea searching for her haunted ship for a home, something sturdy, something surreal and with a story you feel instead of hear. she will connect with this ship that is neither evil nor pure and will keep her stable so she can blossom and fight for life

well that's about it HAGS I'll probably be doing more posts but just in case you quite reading :P oh and I got a job yay!

Spider Fossil in Charcoal

So I'm on a computer where I can't crop or anything but this a photo of my first charcoal piece which I completed last week. The photo doesn't really do it's justice, but I'm happy with the markmaking and the composition between the spider and the rock. This is the reference I used:
The story behind it is pretty interesting. The spider was found in ancient volcanic ash located in Inner Mongolia. The spider is called Nephila Jurassica and is around 2 inches long and dates back about 165 million years. yeah ok the size could be a little more impressive but still.

Australian Peacock Spider

This is an Australian Peacockspider monoprint. The reference was a photo from this website:
I love stumbleupon.

Matt's Monoprint Complete!

so I really loved making this. It's not very often that my experiments come out this well. Even Matt smiled when I showed it to him. I'm really happy with his face and the markmaking
