I'm the kid with the big plans, I just don't know them yet. But I'm a sophomore in college and hope to some day become more than a mystery (at least to myself). As for now? I believe life is a book, each day is a paragraph and each week a chapter. It's kind of a long book, but I'm just hoping mine is quite the page-turner.

Blahh by LittleWheat
Oh, oh, DA. It is good to be back!
It's been a while, hasn't it?

As some of you may know, my absence was due to me becoming a literal burly mountain woman. (If you're curious, here's a link that doesn't explain much of anything.) But to put it briefly, the internet and all technology was far far away and I am now a smidge cooler than I once was.

Anyways.

I'm back! I've been back. And I have just as little time for anything fun as always. And no, I still do not sleep. 
But, I have been doing some fun things!

For starters, I now work at a zip-lining company ('cuz Im an artist and what other job would I have?)
Secondly, I have finally become proactive in animation by doing, well, animation! 

And here's the other thing, I've sort of gotten into the habit of posting more to tumblr (sad, I know.) But that isn't to say that I won't continue posting here. I guess the only difference is that I'll post the sketches and random gif animations in-progress on tumblr and the finished stuff here. So pick yer poison, I guess. 

As always, I love to chat so don't hesitate to talk to me! Have a great day!

Cheers! Popcorn

Stick With It!

Art is hard.

In that regard, art is like a plant.You’d think art would be a particularly pretty flower only to reach out and discover that such beauty is only the product of art. The act of making art is a cactus. It’s prickly, defensive and sort of hurts when you touch it.

But here’s the thing. Come rain or those
perpetual seasons of inexplicable drought-a cactus sticks with it. As artists, we’re called to do the same through whatever tornadoes the vague and tumultuous persona of art might toss our way.

It’s up to you to let your dreams and aspirations grow. It takes care and time and a whole lot of commitment.
 
Art is hard.
It’s prickly and confusing. But even prickly things need constant care in order to grow. Frankly, art deserves that much.

So, fellow artists, please, stick with it.

Tiger Lily by LittleWheat
Tiger Lily
As a kid, Peter Pan was one of my favorite movies. I've been told that I used to walk up and down the stairs shouting out, in a rather impressive british accent given I was only three, "Peter! Peter! Where are you?" And while I don't remember this bit from my childhood, I believe it easily enough because I have always dreamed big. 

And right now, I feel the push and pull of all my dreams. We've all been where I am. In fact, this isn't the first time I've even been where I am. When the spring comes and you're overbooked. I have a television production, a short film, a typography book, a complex print-making project, a brochure, a research paper, a painting, a powerpoint- all due in the next one to five days. And I want to give my all to every single one. 

And I try to.

But on top of that is spring fever, and periods, and family, and friends and all of the other more personal art projects I want to do. I want to animate and improve in that area. I want to eat healthy and workout everyday. I am stressed and I am scared because every single task I have allauded myself is like a flower I have plucked from the ground. And first off- I am always saddened when people pluck a flower too soon. But here I am with a beautiful bouquet. And here I am watching flower after flower wither and die. And people mention how natural it is. 

"Surely you can't give your 100% all to every flower."

But how cruel is that? The world is so cruel, sometimes. But I don't think it's the world's fault. I think everyone wants the flowers to grow. After all, especially here, we're all artists. Not everyone is an artist- but I am. 

And as a rather wonderful professor told me, "Don't ever let anyone tell you that you aren't smart for being an artist. Artists are here to express ideas. And engineers, mathletes-everyone- they wouldn't be where they are without people like you (me) expressing these ideas in ways that no one else has or can."

And I suppose it is a big dream. But I want flowers to last instead of wither. 

Anyways, here's a Tiger Lily.

Because A) It's MARCO and B) I haven't posted in forever because I've been a bit blue. So I decided to make a sad song better and now it's red and I am alive and spring break is coming and there is hope. 

For instance, I hope you all are doing well! And I also hope you'll comment because I love talking to people even if they are ambiguous strangers separated from me by miles and screens. You're still people and I do love people. 

So go ahead and comment, it will make my day!
