dana scully and clarice starling meeting at the academy and getting it on
THERE WAS ACTUAL FEMSLASH OF THIS IN THE NINETIES. I shit you not. And I can’t find it anywhere now and that makes me sad. Plus, I fear it may read as crappy now to my old jaded eyes. BUT AT LEAST PEOPLE ACTUALLY WROTE THIS.
If you were thinking of commissioning me…. I just lost my job. My minimum-wage contract ended and they ran out of money. So they can’t keep me on. I’m working on a new art show this summer/autumn but I still need to live (and buy materials for that). So yeah, point me towards jobs for experienced art and museum workers and freelance illustration. I’ll take on anything right now.
Yesterday I ate scallops & black pudding, fillet steak, fries and white choc cheesecake. Plus a nice glass of merlot. It was awesome.
I have no point or reason to share this information. Im just excited to have nice food.
If by self taught you mean years of doodles, crying over your pathetic art, tearing up thousands of drawings and then finally drawing something you’re proud of… ONLY TO HATE IT 5 DAYS LATER
Then yes. I am self taught.
I mean I go to art school now, but I spent years teaching myself how to draw before this point…
Self taught as opposed to what?
I mean, I went to art school but you had to already have the technical skills to get in. Mostly they gave us the space to work and the business and concept education. In ten years of studying art I never got any ‘how to draw’ lessons.
This whole self taught thing pisses me off, tbh. There are Outsider artists and classical artists but skills don’t come from school they come from practice and enthusiasm. All artists are self taught, IMO.
Boooo. Just had my work rejected by the Ferens’ Gallery again. On the other hand, I sold 3 prints at Artlink - a much more worthy and prestigious fine art institution, In my opinion. They’ve certainly got good taste there!
1. I have scars all over but the best ones are on my right hand that got skinned and lost a finger. Its a right mess! Still works though. I can’t complain. 2. I had a lovely moment with a friendly scabby old cat today. I see her on my way home from work and no one has ever been so pleased to see…
Little finger, it was left smeared under a rock but no great loss.
I’m sorry about the wine. : ( I do always bring a few bottles of mid price supermarket plonk as back up. And there’s always a 24hour offliscence somewhere.
Pens, eh? Where do they go?
I’ve nothing against white, affluent, heterosexual men writing books but why do they have to shove it down my throat? I mean I’ve nothing against their lifestyle choices but can’t they just stop affronting my morals and be a bit more inclusive and socially aware. Do they think its edgy or challenging or something?
I just applied for a job at the national archives. I’m so, so qualified for it and I spent 2 months working on my application. It was a thing of beauty, the platonic form of a job application, my soul condensed into a .doc format.
Just wish me luck guys. Obviously…I don’t need luck, but still, its appreciated. :)
