Not Dead Yet

So now that I'm allowing myself a little R&R for the holiday I thought I'd see if I could reacquaint myself with the internet.
I can't believe there are only 2 weeks left to this semester; this means the inevitable stress surge about to take hold... ugh. But of course stress and deadlines are the speediest motivators out there and so I know it will all get done, but at what cost to my sanity? I can imagine myself already drinking it up the night reviews are done, aaaah... Just gotta suck it up for now!
Uh, so, anyway. Finally feeling like I'm finding some sort of defined path with my artwork. It's been a long while since I last posted... Combining my loves of various genres spanning the art spectrum and combining them into something I hope is uniquely me. Margot equated it to French cuisine with peanut butter. Ouch. Yet again, you could always put peanut butter on a baguette, right? Not all 5 star chefs began cooking brilliantly the first time they picked up a whisk.
Alright, gotta work on compositions for 4 paintings, hopefully they'll be sorted out by dinnertime and then I can continue my art book--typing, printing, et cetera. For now I will leave you with a 90% finished painting on the subject of Postpartum Depression, uncropped in its original cell-phone quality glory.

Ballin' painting.

That video is super depressing, also because of the Portishead.

Thanks bro, your's was incredible as well but of course I've told you that multiple times already.

Yeah that video is rather depressing... It really is a sad story, but it definitely needs the notoriety.
