What Remains

So I have a lot on my plate right now.  I've actually started writing several post but I haven't had time to finish them.  So I haven't been posting them (they're there though). Be on the lookout for a comic, an artist talk review, a critique reaction, a museum visit, some goal assessment, and something random to suddenly show up as having been posted within the last week.  For now though:


Oh... and the current plan for my thesis project looks like this:

I think it's more comic like now. Which I think should make it easier to assess flow.

A Difference of Two

I have been struggling to complete my application to the Graduate School of Education perhaps because I my heart is not really in it.  I can not say how true that is, but there are surely seeds of doubt which have just begun to sprout.  I have expressed my intent to pursue Education to many and it is usually met with such approbation that I hardly consider the deviation from my more deeply seated goals.  In the case of my intention being met with reproach it is usually with such aggression that I have no choice but to defend my stance.  However, recently my intention has met with neither approval or repulsion but with the sincerest curiosity as to why I would want to do that. Having not found an answer which resonates with me a half of what drives my other intentions the seeds began to sprout.

Becoming a teacher was never a dream of mine. Though it was always something which I believed I would both do and greatly enjoy; It was never my dream.  I dreamed of becoming great in my field, to be a teacher of peoples, to be a teacher by deed.

Am I giving up? Am I being sidetracked? Am I underestimating my desire to teach?

I am not sure where I wish to be in a year.  I am sure I would like to have some time off between the attainment of one degree and the pursuit of the next. Could the trepidation merely be from my desire of a break? I honestly would love to be a travelling teacher.  I want the qualification. I want a chance to do college over. I don't expect to efface my undergrad record, but it would be nice to have a stunning two years to place atop it, something less riddled with the mistakes of a love plagued solipsist turned Buddhist. I know that is one of the major reasons I wish for a new degree: to feel that I have turned this whole mess of five years into something more tangible than insight. But if I could be convinced that with solely the experience of these past five years it is time to set out for something more great, then why should I delay?

Seven Eyed Hitsuji

Chapter 5 Line 6

Watch out for this one...
Also!  Today I got told about http://www.googleartproject.com/. It's has virtual tours of several major world museums. Certain paintings also have REALLY HI-DEF photos.  You can zoom in far enough to count the bristles on Van Gogh's brushes!  Glorious.
And that's not even full zoom.

Comic: Rats On A Hill

Yeah! I kept a promise!
This comic took far more effort than they're giving me credit for.

I have this thing about self reference. It seems to be my preferred way to start off a series of comics. Anyway, I was having trouble coming up with ideas so this is what you get. Most of my ideas were too long for now, and I'm not sure what kind of continuing story I feel like drawing right now. I may poll for opinions later.
