Filling the Void with Familiarity
There's been a little absence in posting, as I'm keeping very busy as of late. I'm trying to draw constantly. I'm going to life drawing at least three days a week, and drawing at every possible moment during the day.
It's the only way I think I'll start getting better at this stuff. I'm currently working on a portfolio for my dream school, so drawing has occupied every single nook and cranny of my cranium.
I got rid of my computer to elminate the distraction of the internet, and the amount of time I wasted on it, which could be better devoted to drawing. So for the first time in over 10 years, I don't have a computer. It was weird at first, but now it makes total sense. And I love thinking about drawing drawing drawing, all the time. So posting has become something of a rarity without a computer with which to do it. Scanning, and posting pictures has become even rarer. I've eliminated almost everything in my life that wastes time...So I can draw.
To fill the distance between posting, I thought I might (slowly) resume posting Don Graham's Composing Pictures chapters. I've had requests for this as well as a reposting of the Pixar Interview which jump started this blog's humble popularity spike. I have also decided to post the entire full resolution version of Michael Caine's, Acting in Film. I have had a lot of requests for this, and I figured it's finally time. I know a lot of Animation Mentor students use the crappy YouTube version I posted years back. So it would be nice for them to watch something where the voicetrack is actually in sync.
Anyway, that's just a sampling of things to come, or come again. Give me time, but those will be some of the next posts. Until then...
