Quest, challenges and such.

Finally updating after a long hiatus. Not from creating art that is but basically updating my instagram and tumblr far more often. Also dealing with life drama and such, especially with last month here in Orlando with the shooting.

Such horror happening close by has cemented my view of the uncertainty of life and that I cant settle for the 9-5 grind which is becoming old fashioned and for me very stifling and unhealthy. It is far more infuriating when you have to deal with needs less drama, egos and basically controlling nutters. I shall see what this month will round out as far as my personal progress, times for taing it easy and relaxing are over. I got art to create and stories to share. including a few scans of fairly recent drawings and such. kmrussellart.tumblr.com is where more frequent...much more frequent updates can be seen.

Hairy March

So much for my plans to update at least once a month but I have been busy since my last update with life and art or just life in general since art is a part of life. I have started a new job and it is pretty nice compared to many other gigs I have had. Interesting crew of folks who are all wonderfully interesting in a way I enjoy.  See how things go there as far as work and personal life in general.

This has been a progressive year so far since I have been coming to terms and dealing with a few matters, figuring shit out and becoming more comfortable with aspects of myself despite the fuckery I have tolerated for far too long. It seems people respond to me in positive ways more often than not, apparently I am doing what my mom before she passed said I should do which was to go out into world and shine. Any how on to some scans from my recently finished sketchbook as I am still pursuing my art and story work in a hermetic ecstasy.

Farewell 2015...Whats good 2016

I can sum up 2015 as another tough but eye opening year. Learned a few things and experienced some interesting highs and lows. The highs involved making progress on building my life up, such as getting my own spot and handling my bills on a tight budget. The lows are from family and money, saw the ugly side of how people are towards each other over petty shit and power trips.

Yet I have experienced those odd twinkles of when things just seem to work out. One was getting a free much needed keyboard from a person on craigslist finding out I'm an artist and liking my art and taste. Something that's tough to find is people who really do appreciate and encourage creativity outside of a school setting. I have dealt with a lot of bullshit over my goal of being a creative this past year. So I learned to say fuck it, I do what I have to do to get by but I make sure to get my drawing and sketching time in. Because this fucking life is far too uncertain to let little narrow minded fuck wits brow beat you with their shaolin temple level of fuck wittery. Any how on to some scans to round up last year and start the new. Happy New Year people.

Autumn learning

Well September has ben an interesting month if for learning and getting re-aquainted with that old core of learning from my early days I touched in my last ranty post. Still in O-town and ma have a few things line up for October, otherwise I have my own progress to attend to.  Here are some scans of sketches and such, finished stuff to follow soon.
