Exactly one week ago my boyfriends father died. It wasn't a horrible gruesome thing. He died quietly surrounded by family. Moments before he went all of his kids were around his bed. They looked like dark haired angels to me. I missed work the day after to stay in town with Ramen's family. Ramen missed 2 days of work to help settle things and to be with him mom. He was back to work on Friday. Things aren't completely settled but his mom is starting to move this Thursday. She's thinking of moving into a small home my parents I mean- Westmore Investments Group- renovated.
Because death is an unexpected sad event, it's quite possible that Ramen won't be joining me on my trip to Chicago with my family. Though we planned things expecting him to be there. The trip is also celebrating my 21st birthday. I'll be with my parents so I cant get in too much trouble. Though I'm not the type of person to get so messed up that I can't function. Even if Ramen can't go I'll only be missing him for 3 days. No one's going to blame him for being with his family at a time like this.
Ramen's trying to ban me from doing digital art. He wants me to do some traditional. And I do too. I recently re-watched the movie The Belladonna of Sadness. I want to do a watercolor nude of myself inspired by that film. I'm sure this isn't the traditional art Ramen had in mind…But whats the point if I'm not doing what I want? If you're making art thats boring you there's no point. Then it's work. Then it's no fun.
I'm still doing digital because I feel like it's more productive. Looking back at the year just before I started working digitally I only could make about 20 drawings a year. Digitally I can do the same work in less time. I can make lots and lots of drawings per year. So I feel more accomplished. Also, scanned traditional art looks kinda crappy compared to all the digital art. There's just a lot of visual noise. Its hard to explain XD.
Anyways, Ramens at work so I'm gonna take some reference photos~
