Not much of an update, still working on many projects so progress is slow. My focus is split between work, play/socializing and artsy stuff and I'm having a hard time balancing it.  

But I did find this fun Ted talk video about procastination which I can relate alot to.    

I am also reading David Bayles - "Art and fear - Observations on the perils (and rewards) of artmaking" It's a pretty good read so far. I would recommend it to most artists, though alot will disagree with the books angle and approach I think. 

Also wanted to share a few artists I've been checking out lately. 


Azazel 1 by jeremiahkauffman
Azazel 1 by :iconjeremiahkauffman: (I personally find this artist's style very intruiging, having a hard time putting into words why I do.) 

Flood Waters by Harmaasusi

Flood Waters by :iconharmaasusi:

Sky makers by Metalzillor
Sky makers by :iconmetalzillor: (I find his imagination quite striking.)

SEAFAUNA by RSConnett
SEAFAUNA by RSConnett (he's a huge inspiration to me, I'm always awestruck by these paintings.)

It's all right by dogzillalives

It's all right by :icondogzillalives: (also a artist that inspire me greatly.)

I have alot of work in the pipeline, but again I'm pretty slow, so to those who watch me with paitence, thank you. 

Thanks for reading and have a nice day all.

Thank you for the favorite, comment and watch! And also, thank you for mentioning and showing Jeremiah's piece on your journal entry. If you go to Jeremiah's profile page, you will see that it is a memorial page - Jeremiah passed away 8 years ago. I have made a memorial page for him as a way to share his art with other artists and to keep his memory and creations alive. He loved being an artist and he loved the art created by other artists- for other brilliant and gifted artists to see his work is the greatest honor and gift he could ever want. You are a wonderful artist and I thank you for your gracious interest in Jeremiah's art work. I know he would have loved and admired your beautiful art work very much! You are very special and I hope you don't mind if I put your work in Jeremiah's favorites!I feel he would want you there!
    As to the size of his work- it is not large- mostly in the 8by10, 9by12 and 11by14 range.

I'm very sorry to hear that he passed away, my deepest condolences for your loss. =( I'm sorry I didn't properly read the artist page, I'm a bit of a scatterbrain so I tend to do things too quickly and jump the gun. Both from what you write and impression of his art he seemed like a cool guy and talented artist. I'm very glad you keep his account alive so artists like me can discover him and still be inspired by his art.

And thank you for the kind words and praise, I'll take them with me on the road as I create more art.

 Wow, for that size, the amount of detail he could do is impressive. =)

Thank you so very much for your beautiful and gracious words! You aren't a scatterbrain, many people have had the same misunderstanding. Iam very happy that you like Jeremiah's art work. He would probably have been so pleased because I feel he would have admired your art as well. Jeremiah loved being an artist and he loved the world of art beyond anything and it is through wonderful artists, like you, that he is still able to be an important part of it!
   You are a special artist and that is why I have placed your art images in Jeremiah's favorites.I hope you don't mind if I continue to put more of your work in Jeremiah's favorites. It is a great honor to Jeremiah's art and memory to have you there! Once again, thank you and I wish you all the luck in the worldon your road to creation!
