And it really was. Better Art Studios is official and in business with a Facebook
page and everything! We had a big turnout for our Open House studio show/gallery thing the other night with tons of food and drinks and people talking to each other and noise and warmth and love and laughter. I had cramps about halfway through BUT THE PARTY WAS SO AWESOME I JUST PUT UP WITH IT or tried to.
I don't have words to properly express how supportive, warm, and wonderful our collective friends are. I just love it. I felt accomplished and proud of myself for a few reasons, but definitely the main one being that it was really solid proof that I'm not a socially retarded retard anymore. People actually kind of like me and I more than like them. FRIEENNDSSS AAAAAA god this is one of those stupid posts where I bawl in gratitude about my feelings and do nothing useful.
I have been working on drawing shit for myself, trying to do a little of it every day when possible, and actually improving myself and creating polished pieces. I definitely want to get back to my unfinished senior thesis as well as doing some new large-scale charcoal work. I'll use the deadlines of competitions I have to spend money on as personal deadlines to make me feel proud of myself.
Also I illustrated an FML
and that was a really good idea and I have to do more things like that because I have to spread the honey on thick out there to attract all the bees. BEES. BEES BEES BEES.
I am not a natural genius nor do I often get things right on the first try, but there's usually a second try. And then a third. And then I hammer and hammer until what I really want is earned through the sheer retardation of me hitting my head against the wall.
Still gonna make art my career~ Fuck you, real world~
