Recently I made two acrylic paintings.   This was done on a 15×30. I liked it so much, I got more canvases to do more jellies. Right now I am working on a darker one with box jellies (Cubozoa).   This is my beloved cat, Vivi. She died last June and I miss her. Acrylic is really fun and easy because you can let it dry and sort of start…

Stats and Programming

I got an A+ in my stats course!! Haven’t seen those since high school! It made me really happy, but I think it made my boyfriend even happier. It made me happy because it reminds me of how much I love math. Which is cool, because my first research assignment is on modeling. Which is to write a simulation program on a programming software (in my case, R). I’m really…

Final’s week!

Today we had 5.5 hours of presentations in my Theory of Evolutions class. I went second in a class of 18 students (so glad!), which made it kinda hard to stay awake after the halfway point. So I drew my classmates! On my iPhone hidden in my bag. It’s funny how much better I got by the last drawing! The prof, looking like a Shakespearian. I liked that she had…

It’s 3:33, make a wish! To sleep earlier?

So I went to Thailand and Taiwan in Spetember! I drew over the picture to study real proportions. I wanna get back into drawing, but better. I downloaded an app (ArtStudio) to doodle with; it’s a pretty powerful program (layers!) considering it’s free. I want a stylus so I can doodle better, but then it’s silly ’cause I have a tablet for drawing. I’m in school again, which I love!…

“Culture of Distraction”

1. As a culture, we’ve got a crisis of attention. We’re becoming a distracted culture… one that is disconnected from one another. And I want to talk about what’s causing it.
2. What are we losing – of ourselves, of our relationships to one another, of what in many ways, I would say, our humanity.
3. What can we do about it. If we all feel it, is there anything we can do to stop it. Or, is it out of our control.

Morrissey

I saw the Morrissey concert two nights ago in San Diego. IT WAS HIS BIRTHDAY!! Morrissey is the singer of The Smiths who went on as a solo artist because his guitarist left. The Smiths was pretty much Morrissey though, so the music stays pretty consistent. Morrissey is depressing and full of sorrow and needs love like a sad ugly puppy, even though he’s old now, and was never ugly.…

“When exactly…

“When exactly were you brainwashed into believing that the best way to earn a living is to have a job?”– Seth Godin, Brainwashed via Swissmiss   Goes along very well with the lessons I’ve been learning about the world in the last year. But what do I have to offer? Hmm.
