Lack of motivation after house move

So, finally moved a week ago... and I haven't felt like doing much, not even the painting I promised myself to make.  I'm halfway through the previous planned one (still unfinished).  So instead I have done another, just to try and get myself back into it all again.  It's of a girl sitting in a forest, and the ground is crumbling underneath her.  I thought I would try a kind of abstract approach with a touch of emotion.

It's not that good really, but it's a start.

They all float down here.

A planned painting on the way soon.  Have a busy schedule coming so I don't know when I'll get around to doing it exactly though.

It alllllllllllllll Draaaaaaaaags on...

I really get sick and tired of these celebrities sometimes.  They're everywhere, you can't avoid their antics.  I'm sure they don't like getting followed around by the paparazzi, but for God's sake, why do we have to hear about their everyday lives?, or their sordid lifestyles?  Yes they're human, please wake up already!  Stupid media.

It's just something that gets to me and I apologize from the bottom of my heart if this seems like a stupid rant.

Anyway, more painting work from me recently.  I guess it's a kind of romantic thing, where the boy in the flying machine has flown to his friend, and has asked her to go away with him to a far away place.  Funny why I do these things sometimes, because I really haven't got a romantic bone in my body.  I just like to think I could be sometimes... Or at least wishes.

First painting 2012

Space elevators, with a space girl and two androids.  The crater in the background has a control tower and a generator which produces the power for these elevators.  There's also a ridge in the foreground.

Acrylic painting which didn't take me as long as previous efforts, but hopefully this will be the start of much more similar themes with new ideas.

Why do I always go for the wrong types?  Damn, I should realize by now nobody like that would be interested in me.  I never learn my lessons.

*goes back to his normal day things and forgets about this kinda stuff*

New Project

Considering my new found interest in Science-Fiction, I decided to start a new art project.  This one is based upon an old idea of "Space Elevators".  Elevators that defy gravity, and that enables a human to travel to other locations spread out in the universe.
This has to be my first planned painting within 6 weeks, I just haven't had the patience to do anything creative this year so far.  Hopefully this new project will break that hiatus.

Certain times bring back certain moods.

Moving house is really taking a long time, lots of relying on other people to sort out there arrangements.  Not to mention the packing of stuff on my side too.
Today though, I came across some language books from when I started to learn other languages.  It was once one of my hobbies, and to be honest I am quite good at picking up languages.  One of the days, I want to start again.  It's just some things that really deter me, like.. not traveling too often, or not being confident with other people.  But other than that, I adore learning languages.
Could it be this time that I want to pick up something a little more "complex" and strange to me?  Say something like Chinese or other languages that doesn't use the Latin alphabet.  It certainly would be a challenge anyway.

I'll really have to decide when this nightmare of a move is over.  A time when I'll have more of a clear mind. (hopefully)

Creature comforts

One of my personal favorite creations.  A group of strange little creatures that have formed a band.  The band comprises of an accordionist, 2 flute players, and a female vocalist up front.  :)

Guess I just can't help the fact that I'm really looking forward to Poland/Ukraine this year.  I don't hold any hopes for England progressing out of the group stages though.  I'm such a loyal fan! rofl

Feeling all nostalgic now

Wow!  Wondrous feelings can be obtained if you accidentally find old stuff from the past.  Having not put the effort in looking before, it had been ages since I've seen those old artworks, photos and documents.  These were stored on an old hard drive from one of my first ever PC computers.  I didn't even know I had it still.

It was great to see pictures of old friends from the net that I first chatted away with on my first ever PC.  A very emotional journey I had wading through old folders and files.  I even had old digital artwork that I made during the years of 2000 and 2001.  It's great to see how far I've come in terms of my ability, I've learned a lot from other people during the Interwebz.

Nostalgia rulz!

Angelina Jolie!  One of my first ever digital portraits! Hurrah!

Moving... and other things.

Moving is a bit of a daunting time.  So much to think about, so much to worry and chew over.  After being in the same location over a 11 year period, it's gonna feel really strange starting out again elsewhere.
In the meantime, I have to get rid of a whole load of stuff.  Including things that have been in my life since I was a kid.  The memories I keep, but the objects themselves I'm not so fussed about.  These consist of collectible items such as Star Wars toys and Transformers.  I guess I'm all grown up now, so there's no need to keep them anymore.  Still, I'm a kind of fan of Star Wars but not as much as I used to be.
I really DO hope though that moving can be the start of something new, and fresh.  If I'm being honest, the past 10 years have been a mixed bag of bad and good memories, but mostly bad.  It will be good to put a lot of stuff behind me.

Wish me luck.

How did I allow myself to...

Get into matters of being interested in strange phenomena again.  It's something I used to read up a lot about when I was still in Secondary school and at the age of 12.
I guess there's nothing wrong with that, it's just that in terms of what's true or not, there's so much disinfo out there.  The stuff that can confuse your mind a little, where you get the crazies.  But there's also some really credible information out there too that can open your mind a little.
I think myself, if there are aliens that are visiting our planet.  I would really like to know if they believe in God, or are spiritual (or more so) than ourselves.  It's food for thought.  Since we look up to the stars at night, and we wonder sometimes about our background, or basically how we came to be.  I wonder if they think on the same thoughts?
I guess I would also like to know if they value life more than we do?  We live but once, and we are sometimes so negative.  We build things, then we destroy it.

I could really imagine this scenario where these highly intelligent beings look up another planet which is capable of life through a form of telescope.  Which then they would travel through their advanced technology to explore.  Just like Christopher Columbus did to discover unknown territories.  Then they discover primitive tribes, capable of being influenced.

I guess I read too much of Chariots of the Gods... but sometimes (for me anyway because I know how much people hated that book) some things slot into place.

A New Year

Had no idea what happened to my previous blog entry.  I wrote a short paragraph, but it's disappeared.


A start of a new year, 2012 ... Where there's going to be a supposed Armageddon.  It is hyped up bullshit really in my opinion, designed to put the fear of God into us all.  In reality though, for the world things can only get better can't it?  At least I'd like to think that there's something really exciting, as in the word "progress".
It's crazy, but I happen to believe there's something good around the corner, like some magnificent breakthrough that the world can benefit from.  And no, I'm not psychic, it's more on the lines of being "hopeful".

Happy New Year
