Ok, so it's summer again, which means that it's time to to reappear on deviantart, or at least try to. My last journal is ancient, and life has moved on a lot since then!
I have just finished my exams which is why I have time to be on here again. I often feel that after I've done exams my desire to do something productive and creative goes through the roof. Don't get me wrong, I love what I'm studying, and some of the best scientists are incredibly creative people, but cramming equations and information into my head since March is potentially one of the most boring things I force myself to do on a yearly basis. I'm someone who thrives on learning new things, and in terms of that, this is certainly the most stagnant time of year.
I've spent a lot of time on deviantart watching other people's art, and finding styles that I like. I'm doing an internship for pretty much all of the summer, but I am definitely going to use what time I have to try and do some creative things. I've actually treated myself to a rather expensive post exam treat - some Letraset promarkers
. Anybody who has had a look at my gallery will see that I'm chronically afraid of colour, so I've decided that now is the time to fix that, and learn something new. I don't want this money to go to waste!
EDIT: This is of course dependent on my exam induced RSI calming the **** down.
Besides, I've got an idea in my head for combining my (limited) artistic output with my love of my subject, so we shall see how it goes.
Hope everybody is enjoying their summers!
