What happened to Kings Of Leon? Their first two albums were really sick… and their last three really suck. It actually pisses me off so badly. Their first two albums produce some of my favourite jams and is really raw. But their new junk has no soul…
Okay tomorrow will be the day that I start drawing the White Stripes addition to my wall-mural. As long as I wake up early enough and am able to get into the drawing spirit! I am very excited. Tomorrow feels like the right day. I won’t be able to finish it - which really sucks because when I start something I tend to want to finish it - but I will get a great start.
My favourite part of a drawing day, is the planning and preparing of the drawing day and everything that goes with it. It just gets me SO hyped to have this whole environment dedicated to something I love.
I need to move the mattress off my bed, so I can stand on the wood frame: I need my secret wooden chair, I need my portable, fold out table, my pencils…. oh man… I THINK I AM FRESH OUT OF PENCILS! Hmm, I will have to go to the store in the morning before I get started. I will also need lots of tea. Tea is the perfect drawing beverage. And then my many records and/or a great iTunes playlist.
I took me a little while to decide on who I wanted to do next. I was thinking Gord Downie - my next subject - and then I was thinking Matt Berninger, but I really wanted another female. So I decided to get the best of both worlds and use perfect combination between Jack White and Meg white.
I may document the whole thing again… but the last time didn’t turn out so well. I didn’t like the results. So maybe I’ll just write about my day afterwards.
I’m not even sure if my drawings are any good, and frankly I don’t really care. I just love the process of doing it and creating something that means something to me, and that’s really all the matters. They make me happy, and that’s why I do them.
And if someone else likes them too, then so be it!
I think I should set like 30 alarms… just in case.
I need to reserve more time in my day to writing - recreational writing - and drawing. I really need to just get into the routine of things. I might make myself some sort of schedule for this winter break, just until I get into the groove of doing it regularly. I think I liked Midnight In Paris WAY too much. It has, at the very least, inspired me to think about reading some more novels.
I’m not sure how I plan on writing if I don’t read anything. I’ve always been more interested in reading non-fiction than fiction, but who’s to say I can’t study them both?
I may want to think about centering my time around these things.
