except its probably in poor taste to keep talking about how much i dont like it, especially since as time goes on it will probably get less and less bad until im apathetic about the whole matter and maybe have a friend, and then i will graduate.
anyways, i made a hat last night, of my own design, and i think its rad.
i might make a few more for the etsy, and you can already custom order them on the myspace.
but self promotion aside, i have a new hat, and it makes me things feel a little less sucky.
i love you so much. you are my favorite day of the year, no question about it. i enjoy you more than my birthday and christmas combined. and this year, i got THREE of you!!!
but rather than giving the typical detailed play by play analysis of the warped tour that readers of my old blog have become accustomed to, ive decided to just lay out the highlights of this years triple dose of warped, and some of them have *gasp* PICTURES!!!!
so, lets get this party started, eh?
(note to self: stop being such a tard)
1. seeing motion city soundtrack for the sixth and seventh times, making them win by three in the bands that ive seen the most times contest.
2. seeing the academy is... for the first and second (but missing the potential third) times, crossing them off the list of bands i really like but havent seen yet.
3. seeing the higher for the third time, adding them to my collections of bands that i dont really like but keep ending up seeing. see also, as i lay dying.
but in an effort to do as many productive and creative things before school starts, i decided to utilize the adorable 2 x 3 inch lino blocks i bought at the blick in pasedena. and boy did i miss school.
see, i dont have any bench hooks of printing frames, so i had to both carve and print without any kind of support. which wasnt that bad, just alot more difficult, and i had to be alot more careful not to cut my hand open. i also had to clean up my mess cause i couldnt just leave it for that one guy to clean up and then yell at me the next day, but that was also fine due to the large sheets of newsprint i took out of the trash in life drawing last semester.
but other than that, it was great. being a printmaker without a studio often sucks, but lino aceos are totally doable. in the end, i was left with a very small mess and some very small burtonesque stylized faux bois prints
