June 16th, 2011: Illustration Friday

   So. I went to orientation at school. And it stunk. Most likely I am NOT going to art school this Fall. Again. So yesterday was pretty horrible. I suppose that the Bible verse I last posted was even more relevant to me than I suspected. I hate it when that happens! So I'm down in the dumps. A lot. But I know it will be ok. I just have to re-plan, and that isn't much fun.
     Ok, so, it's been awhile, and I kinda forgot about it, but it's Illustration Friday time once again! This week the word is swept. I thought about doing something all pretty and whimsical and romantic... but I'm in a bad mood, and so I thought "heck with it!" and drew a little spider being swept away firing a machine gun of some sort! TAKE THAT YOU FORCES AGAINST ART SCHOOL!!! I mean, I'm not bitter or anything. Honest! I'm not! Who knows what God intends. But, it did feel good to draw such a pathetically spitefully little spider who's returning the favor.

Heh, the little bloke reminds me of Danny in Hot Fuzz (not that I really recommend it the movie..... although I do have some fond memories of watching it over seas), when he says, "Ever fired your gun the air and yelled, 'AHHHH?" Ahem. Anyways.
      Well well, what quote do I use for such a mournful time?

"To give, and not to count the cost
to fight, and not to heed the wounds,
to toil, and not to seek for rest,
to labor, and not to ask for any reward,
save that of knowing that we do thy will"
-St. Ignatius of  Loyola

There we go. Some comforting, slightly painful,  yet fighting spirit. 


  1. Not to be the first commenter on my own post, but I think Spider here may make another appearance someday. I rather like him! He and Mouse could be friends! Mouse comforts you, dries your tears, is steady and sure, etc. Spider is totally bouncing off the wall, is ADHD, bipolar, hormonal, and completely bonkers. But he has a good heart.

  2. Hmmmm, sounds like you're going through a tough time. I hope that all sorts out for you. I found your drawing very amusing.

  3. Thanks, I'm sure something will turn up! And yeah, it was fun to do. ;)
