It’s the end of the year and Spotify graciously created a playlist of my top 100 most played songs for 2017, conveniently called “top songs for 2017.” It’s my second such playlist (2016 was jammed full of good music, some new and plenty not so new) and let me tell you, this playlist is full of songs I remember putting on repeat and just letting them play endlessly.
Sometimes a song is so freaking good, so well made, speaks so clearly to my inner being that I simply have to listen to it… over and over and over. Constantly, without stop.
Here’s a couple:
- “Let Go – Sir Sly Remix” by RAC, Kele, MNDR
- “Warrior” by Steve James, Lights
- “Strong – RAC Remix” by London Grammar, RAC
- Stranger than Earth” by Purity Ring
In other news, I painted a picture of Dianne. 🙂

Feels good to have another character from the story fleshed out and rendered. Veronica is one of Red’s old teammates and a main antagonist in the story.
She stands at the forefront of most of the opposition Red experiences at the academy and the two loathe each other deeply.
It’s nice to have a face to the description of the character and it’s already starting to pull ideas out of my head story wise.
Might have to continue moving forward with some of the other characters and see what happens.

Interesting things happen when you decide to sketch for an hour or so before bed, instead of consuming YouTube videos. When you decide to work instead of play. Things get done. The ball moves forward and you are that much closer to a goal.
I should do this again and see if I get similar results.

Alive and kicking. What’s there to complain about? Going to do a quick art stream today starting at 3pm MST. Stop by and say hello twitch.tv/thefro3po
A lot of late nights, accumulating into a collection. A conscious effort to accelerate the very thing that occupies my everyday mind dream. I walk a path, I make the journey… the journey makes me. Not stopping when I’m hurting, just attempting to bear fruit before the curtains catch me.
Recently started dabbling in streaming my creative efforts (https://www.twitch.tv/thefro3po come check me out, I’m streaming Tuesdays at 12-4pm MST and occasionally during the week when I get off of work 11pm to 12am MST ). A scary and exhilarating experience, but one that has been most rewarding. Here’s the broadcast of my first stream saved onto my YouTube account. I’ll be looking to do some time lapse versions of these in the future whenever I dust off my Premiere knowledge and stop procrastinating.
Sleep beckons me…
“When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety; if I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without pain. From this I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me. There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it.” – Rumi
Stayed up late to get a bit more of this one complete. So, late in fact that I fell asleep uploading the pic to my blog. lol
Took my own advice and mixed some of my own style and backed off of the anime/cartoony style a bit. Results are looking good so far.
Tried some different hairstyles for the ladies of Blue Moon. We’ll see if I keep them.
and now, it’s really Time for Bed.
I’ve been playing around with this animated/cartoony style all week. I love the simplicity, of the shapes. It makes it easier for me during the construction phase of creating, but it’s definitely not completely for me.
Next week I’m looking forward to blending what I do like about it with my own natural style.
But that’s next week. Not sure what the weekend will be about. I know I’m putting back up the Wall of Crazy, so I can map out my Phase I, II, and III plans… Maybe some T-Shirt design sketches seeing as that’s the big art goals for Phase I (the next ten months).
We shall see
Sometimes what is, isn’t.
It’s crazy how decisions are made and what tips the scales.
Nightmare in a Dream
Nothing is what it seems…
Where thought fades and gut instinct tugs at files Lon forgotten. Don’t forget, but please don’t remember.
There will be time.
But not now.
Later comes eventually.
Enjoy the Journey
