Hey out there in the deviantsphere, how are you all? Today is a good day in my little bubble of reality - I have dubbed it Art Day, as I was guaranteed not to work and had no prior commitments to anybody...and I have been itching to paint for so long. As always I apologise for my sketchiness in appearance; work often leaves me very mentally drained (physically too, most days) and I don't get too much done, and weekends have often been booked solid with other commitments.

Gees, I haven't written a journal since June...what have I done since then, besides work, work and more work?

Well, I did high-tail it to another state for about a week in order to preserve my sanity at the start of July. I drove from Adelaide to Wagga Wagga, a town in New South Wales about 12 hours away (without stopping, mind you) to catch up with a friend - and I drove it solo. It was just me, my music, my GPS and the open road...I absolutely loved it. While I was there I drove some more, visiting people in Wodonga and indulging in all sorts of deliciousness in Beechworth; I made my way to Junee and checked out a licquorice and chocolate factory (where I made my own rocky road...YES :drool:), as well as stumbling upon what is allegedly Australia's most haunted homestead; I saw REAL SNOW for the first time ever and spent my nights mostly in company with a two-year-old. By the time I drove back I felt much more refreshed. So worth it.

A trip away did not stop my continuing obsession with the World Cup, getting up early in the morning for the semis. I enjoyed the thumping Germany gave Brazil and the skill produced by the Netherlands and Argentina. Great stuff. Speaking of the World Cup, I thought Germany deserved the win. They were one of the best teams in the tournament and they worked as a unit, rather than relying on one or two star players (I feel for you, Messi).

Immediately after returning from Wagga I watched the Final and worked most days before heading to AVCon the following weekend. I consider myself a veteran of the con - next year will be ten years since I first attended. I kept it very chilled, but I tried pushing my assertiveness a bit too - drawing some amazing cosplayers, asking other amazing cosplayers to take photos of them (I feel awkward and shy with that sort of thing). I posted my sketches, if you would like a look: All in all it was a good weekend, and I look forward to going again next year...though the thought occurs to me that if I kick my arse into gear and produce more art I should look into vending as opposed to just attending...

Hmm, what else has been happening...well, I did print and bind a long-term project of mine, with the help of a friend. This is a major achievement for me; my story can be read as, well, a book. I felt giddy when I held it in my hands for the first time. I will soon be making a start on the next stage of edits, tweaking and broadening the world I have created.

While I write and draw most days as part of my everyday routine, it's only been very recently that I've resumed more involved pieces - today is the first day in a little while I've made progress on a couple of painting commissions, and it was such a relief to finally complete a personal piece ('Thought Patterns', aka 'The Swirly Drawing' - ) after so long. I haven't been giving myself time to get these things done and I really need to change that, particularly when I have obligations to other people, and very cool people at that. After I post this, I will continue to paint...and hopefully after making more progress on my commissions I can actually indulge in my own ideas on the canvas for a little while.

Work has been very intense at times and I always seem to have SOMETHING on the table, but I can't complain how life is treating me at the moment. There are exciting things on the horizon that I am still striving for though - some of which are so so close...

All right, time to get back to painting. But before I go...I am OBSESSED with Crosses at the moment. A side project of Deftones vocalist Chino Moreno, their self-titled debut is chilled and industrial, ebbing and flowing with highs and lows and damn it is just so freaking awesome. It also prompted me to revisit Deftones and listen to them in much more depth - as well as listen to their last album, which I had not yet acquired. Ahh so good. So, here is some linkage for your visual and auditory pleasure...


Have some more Depeche Mode too:…

Enjoy, and take care of yourselves out there! :wave: Til next time...let me know how you all are!

Journal History


Wow, things have been...interesting lately. New journal coming soon...
An Update...and an Appeal by noisybubbles
An Update...and an Appeal
Hey all, sorry for the radio silence lately - things have been ridiculously busy. They continue to be busy too, with Supanova currently on at the Adelaide Showgrounds.

One of the things that kept me occupied was a trip to Japan! It was awesome...I didn't want to leave. I was there for two weeks and I feel like I didn't even scratch the surface of that place. There are many stories I could tell you, I'm sure...I really need to compile my notes and sketches very soon. Unfortunately, on my flight back from Tokyo to Sydney, I lost my camera with my SD card (and all my photos) inside. Words can barely express how devastated I was when I discovered it.

I've called the airline and emailed the airport but they haven't turned up anything yet...this was three weeks ago. So while I am going to try calling them again next week, I thought I would turn to the internet and see if maybe, just maybe, someone has picked it up. It's a last ditch effort - a long shot, if you will - but I am willing to try anything at this stage. So here is a comic I drew for such an effort, detailing what happened and how I can be contacted should the camera be found.

It's not the greatest comic, I know, but it gets the message out there. I can only hope it reaches the right people.

Thank you for reading, and spread the word! It'd be much appreciated.

ADDITIONAL: Edited a rather daft mistake in the text. All fixed up now.

Blue by noisybubbles
Quick little painting I did while pondering over a commission I'm working on...I had spare blue and grey paint sitting there, I figure I'd use it ^_^ I thought it turned out all right...pity the colour wasn't all that accurate when I scanned it. I tried adjusting the colour in Photoshop but just couldn't get it there (I am not that great with Photoshop).

Acrylic on A7 360gsm paper.
