Summer is now underway - I hope you've all been well.
A big Hello
to my new followers! It's been a while since I've been on, and I only got halfway through my comments the last time...but this time I shall fix that: I'll be uploading art this week and going through all my comments.
For those who may be at all curious...Regarding art
: I have a pretty full sketchbook (of studies, character art, etc.); I've been in the process of making some very sentimental drawings as gifts for people; I have a series of paintings prepared (landscape, portraits, anatomy). I have also started writing again, and I have concept art corresponding with that.Regarding languages
: It's been 5 months of (very casual) French study, and I'm extremely happy with my progress (even if I still do have a very long way to go...I'm sorry if I cannot yet write back very well!). Starting next week I'm going to be scheduling more intensive French translating and writing. Once I gain better skill at writing on my own, I'm going to pursue French by using French to learn German
(something called "language laddering"). This is suppose to make you "think" in the target language. By 2018 I plan to be conversationally fluent in both languages. (After that, Spanish, Greek, Latin, Arabic, Hebrew...and more. >_>)Regarding other
: While I've been very busy with official work, I've been attempting to create more enriching rituals ("enrituals"?
). For example, I've been making a habit of meditating in the morning (30 minutes), and following up with chapters from classic literature while listening to classical music and drinking a cup of coffee. Except for when I wake up late...which is too often this month. O precious Sleep, how I do love thee.
Anyway, that's all for now. I look forward to seeing your work and catching up, hopefully! I'm off to go...sleep. Take care ~
