Early Hours

Yesterday, I made some time for painting, at work. During office time, no longer trucking.
Today, I made some time before work! It's looking, nice, i dont know. but mostly, the practice is going well. It's nice trying the watercolor paint in a less diluted way. Now, I almost have to get going, but, WEll, only makes me want to get up even earlier. To get more time in before work. 3am 2 days in a row. Wednesday I had off, cus fourth of July. Painting early in the morning, also gives me that late at night feel, of quiet house. So maybe remembering this will help encourage to do this during non work days. Tomorrow is Saturday! so, great time to try and get up early. 

Been on my own driving the truck for a while now. It's fun. Getting used to it. Taking care of myself better, and doing well enough. I think.

i've been working on 2.5x3.5"s these days

Wednesday, September 27, 2017

Work is going okay this week and the last. Back at it.

The breaks are too short; I'm at the end of training though so I feel OK.

Thursday, September 21, 2017

I just drove from the yard to the gas station, for the first time first thing in the am.

Sunday, July 16, 2017

I'm so hung up

2 Fridays ago we put the new kenworth to work

This Friday I have a 3rd Friday reception at the Lost Leaf! A fine local bar displaying my art for the month of May

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

A lot of everything feels so dumb and pointless. That's just one side of the coin though. Everything is also just about infinitely possible.

But you can't have everything.

Sunday, February 26, 2017

Parts of me are so sad. And parts of me are so happy.

Friday, January 13, 2017

Working today, a Friday. I haven't had many of those.
This is a unique one.

Monday, December 26, 2016

This is a picture of a watercolor attempt with filter on it. Some fade mostly and a blue tint. Tomorrow I work, right about now is when I'll be going to sleep/bed. Working also on s website makeover, on the side. Practicing watercolor, I finally found my watercolor moleskine sketchbook tonight, I paired it with my new found limited knowledge of the media and came up with this. K bye. Happy holidays to u too.

Monday, December 19, 2016

After eight days off, I'm back to work. And about to drive again. New transmission now, and last week it was a new clutch.

Monday, November 28, 2016

This month I have enjoyed at least the past two weeks in a row as 3-day work weeks. I've got to catch up on day counts. I'm curious. Look at those clouds, past all the man-made stuff. They looked so nice from all angles from which I could spot them. This is from on our way out.

Day 33

Today I moved approximately 20 tons of gravel for the first time! Twice. I suspect this is day 33, but I stopped keeping count a couple weeks ago. It's been fun but also kindof exhausting and busy. Play hard. Work hard!

It's different and odd working for real money. I'm used to working on whatever I want, and hoping to get paid one day. All backwards.

Days

I've lost track of the days

Wednesday, October 19, 2016

Day 27
Just driving around with an empty truck bed, and being passenger while the truck is loaded. Learning is tiring. This fourteen wheeler is a pain to learn well, like not really, but ishh is hard. Not impossible just not easy.

Wednesday, October 12, 2016

Just drove into a new mine pit! The one where you drive through desert. Up very east. It was cool

Tuesday, October 11, 2016

About to drive the fourteen wheeled out of this place.

Wednesday, October 05, 2016

Day 21
Drove into a new mine today, just earlier. Got a "there you go, mam" after pulling in to pick up the buckets of fine rock or whatever it was. I just do as instructed. It was cool! Freeway pro and all. Downshifting better. Minimal downtime besides being passenger. And lacking some sleep.

Tuesday, October 04, 2016

Day 20
I believe the day count is correct. I took last Thursday off, due to an injury. Today is Monday, and yes last week was definitely my first week on the freeway. Actually, today is Tuesday, but my dad needed the day off yesterday to deal with some stuff with my sibling and court.

Monday, September 26, 2016

Day 17
I believe. Wednesday I drove two more times than listed. And Thursday I drove twice. It was a short day.


Drove the fourteen wheeler right now. And picked up the rock at the (Red Mountain) pit! Still need a bit of practice catching the gears while downshifting at slow speeds.

Tuesday, September 20, 2016

Day 14

Surface streets, rush hour traffic, for about an hour.


And finished sketch from yesterday.

Wednesday, September 14, 2016

Day 10

3rd day driving on main roads. CDL practice!

[Edit]
Drove in the early evening too, around 4:50 or five, all the way from drop off site, to the house.

Tuesday, September 13, 2016

Just drove to a job site 😬
(about 20 mins)

Monday, September 12, 2016

Thursday, September 08, 2016

Just drove the fourteen wheeler
In circles in a 3 lane road, then all the way home, to my moms house in Mesa. I did Ok!

Day 05

Today is day five of work. I got a long weekend my first week. I am so tired, so do not want to not have hot water right now. and, I just saw a mouse.
I hope to live somewhere nice one day, in Phoenix. Preferably not 100 years old. But still affordable. I have to finish that painting below asap, I think it will hang in October.

Day 01

Good day! Got home at 6oclock

Sunday, August 28, 2016

Bed time early tonight.
Tomorrow early wake up time.

Fuck

Sunday, August 21, 2016

Fuck fuck fuck.

so, it's ok. That is just exageration. But, you know, how life goes, and it goes without you,. Whether you are ready to go or not, it is going without you? That's that feeling, that makes me want to curse. Cus, gosh.

Wednesday, August 17, 2016

It's been a nice time. I feel aware of my flaws, as well as all my wants. It's been very nice time. A bit this and that. I will stream again soon. So damn soon. I can do it all. I'm also gonna start working a job. One that pays me. My self is the worse boss ever. Terrible wages.

Sunday, August 14, 2016

Bruce Lee is quoted saying something like "do something everyday that brings you closer to your goals" or dreams, I don't remember. I feel myself dying away aimlessly when I am not doing that. Of course. Bumming myself out. And everyone around me.

After believing I am just having a day off. From trying hard at, best case scenario, making a better life...haha. Aka, getting out of starving status one day.

Getting it together

So I guess it's time to get up now... and I just did. Here's a flower vase I painted during my time in Mexico this summer. It's acrylic on paper. Today I will focus very hard on my paint work. To see snippets of progress updates, I share those, these days, on snapchat! @brokeneyeball add me:) and believe it or not... Also on livejournal, it's been serving me as an archive, there I posted a couple more images made during my trip! brokeneyeball.livejournal.com

Granny Francis - school work

Heres a render of the old lady.. or Granny, I very quickly during my presentation on the 'project', named her Francis. I think it suits her well. This was not a great project, everything was rushed, i think. But she looks kinda cute, animating sucked a bit. I might re-work her later on (beggining at the end of the modeling process). But, next, i will prepare the guy i modeled before, for my Character Animation class, so i can animate him.

Collaboration

collaboration between Aldo and me. We each drew certain phases of it..He started the drawing, then i reshaped a little and inked.. then he shaded more. Then from that point on, we each did our own versions.

"im not done painting faces yet"

I like faces.

There is an artist who did a series of 'blue dog' paintings, his name is George Rodrigue. and his paintings famous.

I can paint whatever I want. And, i think, thats what artists do. they paint what they want to paint. someone will find a piece they like and buy it, or not find one, and move one.
I really love and enjoy what i do.

blue tie

Tuesday, March 13, 2007

Okay, heres an entry of words from my mind..and such.

a rant some might call it. ..that i will later add to drafts. So if youre reading this... Lucky you!! heh,..No, just kidding.


skinning and rigging really sucks. Its working very terribly for me. Ive never successfuly rigged or skinned anything..so, it sucks to not be able to do that for my models.

and..because ive never rigged any of my models..ive never gotten the chance to see how they move, and how well i set up my typology. WEll, this lady thing..she isnt so well modled..but i also didnt finish modeling to where i was happy with her..because i had to do more things with her, to get a grade.

So, yes. I think..if i just could work at my own pase, i could do well on a 3d character..maybe id even correctly rig and skin.

I will not do this for a living. I just cant. And for that im happy. but i would like to incorporate 3d models into my paintings at some point. I do somewhat enjoy modeling..i enjoy the end product. and i can stand it. i dont love it.

I do love painting though. Ill make a living of it. I will. and not for the sake of making of living off of it. But because its my passion. to paint, to make finished pretty pieces..and to keep getting better at doing it. And to not have to work jobs ill hate.

Cus..i dont really want to work.

soo.. In conclusion:

I love to paint. soo..i dont really care much, that i suck for not having learned what i should have at school. its not what i want to do.

and, its okay. :)
i just have to make sure to pass all my classes and graduate as soon as possible. so i can leave it behind me..and just have a paper to show for it.
