Updates Fantastic

So here’s what’s been going on with me.

I’ve been unemployed for about 3-1/2 months now, which means I’m starting to lose some of the hard edge that years in the retail trenches gave me. I’m also reading “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance,” which is a trip I can highly recommend already.

Most of my free time is being spent working on a side project with a friend; the advance from which is keeping my head above the financial red line. The rest of my free time is going towards the noble pursuit of digital painting, and also the ironing of my own personal style as preparation for my art career.

Lastly, and this requires a little explanation, I’m going back to school.

One of the perks of being a ward of the Employment Security Department is a thing called Worker Re-training which works with a few local community colleges. While I am unemployed, this program will cover all fees, tuition, and supply costs associated with one quarter’s worth of classes. This means I get to go to school for free.

Naturally, it’s not as simple as that. There are forms and orientation classes and qualifying periods and evaluations, but I’m through all of that and a mere three weeks from joining the scholastic ranks once again.

Things I will be learning: web design, Illustrator, and Maya.

This means you can expect some changes (again) to the site, but it also means that I’ll be infinitely more marketable as the kind of artist that companies can’t wait to snatch up and hurl big swollen bags of money at.

Laters.
