It’s been a while hasn’t it my friends?
Yes. Yes, it has.
I’m sure you’re all wondering what’s going on in my life at the moment. And hey, even if you’re not wondering, I’m going to tell you anyway! ‘Cause I’m nice like that!
First of all, I’ve been working pretty hard to get my photography studio/office done and it’s almost there. Just a few cosmetic things and a few last minute photo essentials to add and I’ll be ready to go.
I got a new Canon printer to help with my photography too. That thing is sweet. Fast, good on ink, quiet, and nice quality. I found out the hard way though that the only photo paper that works properly with it is the paper made by the Canon manufacturer. Just another way for these big companies to rope you in and all but force you to use their products exclusively. Oh well. Gotta do what you gotta do I guess.
One thing that happened recently since my last update that was pretty cool…Bret (Blue Stahli) decided the art piece I made for him was decent and he said he’s going to use it! I haven’t seen it used yet but I’m waiting hopefully!
I’m still working on pieces to send in for Klayton’s call for art. The ideas are brewing but I’m having a bit of a tough time translating them from the plane of thought to the plane of existence. Wish me luck with that.
Next, I’ll be going to my first ever Renaissance Faire next month. I’ve got my costume all done. Granted it’s nothing spectacular, just a shirt, corset, and skirt. But simple tends to work best for me. I’m really not sure what to expect from this thing. I mean, I like to think I’m pretty knowledgeable about the medieval era but I don’t know how the whole Renaissance Faire scene works. If anything it’ll be a learning experience. Hopefully they won’t send an angry mob after me for bringing my camera. I think I’ll get quite a few nice shots at an event like that. We’ll see how it all goes down though.
And finally, I’m getting very close to completing my NYIP course! I have probably eight or ten pictures left to take and print then I can send everything in, sit back, and wait for my critique. If everything’s to their liking, they’ll send me a form to fill out to get my completion certificate. That’ll be awesome! I’m aiming for the end of this month to get everything done and sent in. It’ll probably be sometime in august before I hear anything back though. We’ll see!
Well, I guess that’s all the time I’ll take for this update. There’s much more I could say but I‘ll be nice and end here for now. That’s already (*insert number here*) minutes of your life you’ll never get back. Sorry.
And as usual,
Keep on rockin’ on!
