i hope you dont mind me not actually uploading anything?
i sort of want to take a small break after finishing my last project. im exhausted after late nights, lots of money spending (400 pounds worth of printing, yo) and just generally being tired and wanting to relax.
im actually scared of going on tumblr because it seems whenever i break away from it for more than two days people tend to start leaving me and i feel really bad about that :(
but im only human, and ive been very stressed. im getting stress spots allover me which isnt good. on thursday i have my assessment where i should be given my mark and told whether ive passed or not. i hope i have, it was quite hard as i didnt have all the work from the previous terms as i transferred halfway through. i joined the course with only half an idea of what was going on and i had to build friends from scratch again. but theyre very lovely people and i really think theyre cool.
anyway, forgive me for not doing anything for a while. i really just need a little little break or i think ill die or something
And i made a book

lookitsesmeee asked: Is illustration a hard subject?
its a bit of both?
its hard in the sense that its very stressful when its close to deadline and sometimes inspiration can come at the most awkwardest times. you pretty much have to be working 24/7. theres no real break in it? if you arent drawing youre preparing to and if you arent preparing to then youre thinking about ideas and if you arent thinking about ideas then youre drawing. aslong as you enjoy drawing/animating/making then youre fine but it can be very stressful for those who arent that keen.
but i also enjoy it, along with all stress and headaches. at the end it feels very satisfying having completed something and the rush of ideas is great (the crappy part about the rush of ideas is having to choose one though).
because theres so much work involved you also see your skill increase rapidly, which is also very nice!
