My Art History "online exhibition" is about a comic called Terry and the Pirates. I spent the last 24 hours coloring and finalizing research on comics for work. This morning my body shutdown while I slept through all my alarms and dreamed of searching for a comic in a setting similar to the book "Ender's Game". I'll let my subconscious slide on this one, it was a pretty cool dream.
Had to take a break from thumbnails to make a pechakucha presentation for class. I really like the set up, the faster the slides, the less likely I am to become tongue-tied. When I'm practicing on my lonesome. It might be a different matter when I do it in front of peers.
It did teach me how important documenting my work is. The first photos I had up here were taken with my old phone, and they were of pretty crap quality. Luckily I recently got a new phone that has a camera blessed by the Gods, and more pixels than people in the Big House on a gameday. I try to take pictures of everything I do in here, but somehow it never seems like enough.
Important lesson learned about thumbnailing today. I'll be going along at a steady pace and then I'll get stuck on some scene that I can't visualize. I used to spend time agonizing over it, and then getting upset about how much time I was spending agonizing over it. Now I just skip that bit and move on to some other part of the story. Then I save that tricky knotted bit to think about in my spare time. That way I have a steady work flow and spend less time sorting things out when I'm in my studio.
Maybe it's a weird sorting of priorities, but it feels like a roundabout way of strategic time management for my stuff. I get upset with myself if I spend too much time thinking when I'm in my studio.
I have an Art History exam on the horizon, so apologies if there isn't a lot of posting for a while. I have to spend three days memorizing dates and movements that I will probably forget in less than a week.
