Nothing went planned today! I was supposed to do cool stuff today but instead I was sick and had to stay in bed until I was well again so I couldn’t paint the work bench or visit my friend Debbie! >< After I came out of bed I had a honey sandwich and some snacks but I became upset thinking bad thoughts again obviously because my medication wasn’t working I felt like hell. Then I wanted my mum who, at that time, was out busy doing something but luckly my brother Alex came round after I had my tea to have a chat with me and my dad which cheered me up as I haven’t seen him for a long while and it made up for my bad day. When he left I did some sculpturing for my Sealion episodes which was ok I guess. I had turkey escalopes and beans for dinner but I’m still upset with what’s going on as I’m still thinking of those horrible thoughts about bad or horrid people from TV shows or movies that completely distract me from the good stuff that happens to me. Why did I have to have Chrones Disease and Autism at the same time?! Anyway I hope tomorrow will be better to you my fans and I will try to be happy if I can. Bye for now.
Today I got up and had breakfast then when I was at the point where I tried doing some sculpturing using dad’s help in drilling holes into the wooden blocks to add the wire and mold over it but I decided against it all as it meant getting dad to help me each time I make a model. >< So from now on I’m just gonna do modeling when I’m animating and nothing more and also the medias of art will include things that don’t require anyone elses help as that’d be difficult. Anyway I had a little rest for a few hours after I had my lunch with snacks and when I woke up I decided to paint a dinosaur when it was finished I wasn’t as pleased with it as I thought I’d be because of trying the new chalk brush I thought it would work out better but it’s a learning process after all. I also put my stuff for sculpturing like wires and wooden blocks into my dad’s garage and will not touch them unless I want to use them again but I’ll give it 10 years. I had chicken dippers for tea and relaxed in my room watching my favorite TV shows that I love. I guess my bad thoughts are still the same but I just gotta keep myself occupied that’s all. So that’s everything now I gotta crack on with my preperations for my part at Feel the Force Day in September. ^^
Today me and my mum went shopping to M&S and Hobbycraft where I bought a cutting board and two tubes of paint. While we did this my dad was finishing my wardrobe by adding poles to them so I can hang up my shirts and coats as it didn’t come with them. I painted the background for my new animations for “Sealion & Friends” to test with and stuck it on the window next to the working bench but unfortunately mum said I couldn’t paint the bench today because of the weather so that was a bummer... I also painted the igloo for the scene that I plan to make as well. After that I went to town to pick up a chicken wrap with BBQ sauce, (delicious!) came home from the pouring rain and drank some coffee to keep me awake while watching Friends before mum and dad came back from their meal out. While dad was finishing the wardrobe me and mum watched The Agony & the Ecstasy which was about the famous artist Michelangelo apparently he had autism like me which was why he was so driven. Then when dad called me saying I can put my clothes in my new wardrobe that he finished I did that and it looks great now, it looks like there’s more room where I live now! Me and mum finished watching The Agony & the Ecstasy and I loved it as it influenced me as an artist. By the way what got me really happy today was that mum booked a table for me at the Feel the Force Day Convention so I can display my art and animations there! when that’s done we’re going to go to other Feel the Force Day conventions like the ones in London to get my name out there and I’m really excited about learning and how I can probably get interviewed with my career and all. ^^ Well that’s all for today let’s hope it goes well for tomorrow too. Bye for now.
I slept better today but despite that I was still was upset with my bad thoughts but when I went to my friend Helen’s today she gave me and mum the most wonderful idea of setting up a table for displaying my artwork at some disability conventions or festivals like Feel the Force Day so people can see the things I paint there. Good job we went to Helen’s! So now what mum’s going to do is book a table at the Feel the Force day convention I look forward to all the places to display my artworks! After we came home dad put together my wardrobe and I had a little rest in mum’s bed while she and dad had a meeting with someone then mum got me up at 4:00pm and I had my squid for dinner which my mum hated as it meant taking the guts out and frying it. I had the squid with mash potato and beans then after that I put my things including my books, awards and accessories on the shelves and now it looks good. What mum and dad have to do now is buy a few poles for hanging my coats and shirts there, as the wardrobe didn’t come with them, and it’ll be completed! I love how that’s coming to be. I did suffer from my bad thoughts again today thanks to my stupid autism(!) and maybe the miserable weather didn’t help either but I’m a bit happier now at least. So now I’m thinking of painting something again which you guys will probably see some time. Bye for now.
So I got up with a bad start waking up thinking bad thoughts even though I should be a happy lady for day, I then went to my theripist who I talked to about my bad start and played with her lovely cats. My dad then picked me up from my theripist’s house and we went straight to the guy who bought my old computer chair for over £200 after that we went to IKEA in Nottingham to have lunch (I had meatballs), then we got a refund for the mirror and parts of my new wardrobe that weren’t in good condition for £145. For pudding I had 4 squares of milkybar and finally me and my dad went to Wollaton Hall to see the deer park and gift shop where we had a great time talking about expensive equipment for my art and animation projects. Dad suggested to go on sites where you can personalize greeting cards to get myself out there, he also said that making an intro video for my Youtube channel isn’t worth it because you gotta give what your audience want (thank goodness I checked with him!). We walked all the way around the deer park then found the car park afterwards and I listened to my music all the way back home and when we got back I had snacks for dinner while watching Once Upon a Time with my mum while she was ironing. I think today went really well as me and my dad will do this hopefully once a month together and build that bound between us. So now that’s over I think I need an early night as I’m feeling tired and a tad agitated. Zzzz....
Today I got up at 6:00am to do some speedpainting of a smilodon in watercolour which will shortly be uploaded to my sites for everyone to see while everyone else was sleeping then I checked my updates on Newgrounds, Facebook, Youtube (now 554 subs there), Deviantart, Tumblr & Twitter I then got up and breakfasted and everything at 9:30am. After getting ready and everthing I went back to bed until mum told me to get up around 1:30pm then I had lobster soup and now I plan to have squid for my dinner tonight as I shopped with my mum to get it at Tescos the other day. I’m hoping to be in the mood to paint something good again (possibly fan art or landscapes) but that remains to be seen as I need to hunt for some new fans to follow me or subscribe. I think watching other people paint great stuff helps a lot to keep me interested so I’ll keep that in mind for future then I can show you guys what my skills prove after that. I’ve asked my dad about getting myself out there as an artist and animator but working from home by linking him to sites in an email that include personalising greeting cards, magazine advertising and things like that. I mean I can’t ask Simon my friend to set up my business (like he promised) as he is too busy with everything in his life which mum has to tell dad about as he doesn’t get it yet. I mean it’s like a crane game where you only get things by chance whether you get the toy or not. I also plan to talk to dad about getting some expensive art and animation equipment that is nessesary for my work now that I’ve saved up my money for those things.. So that’s all for now I’ll be doing my updates now. Talk later.
So today me and my mum went to the shop in town to buy a box to store my clay characters from my animations in so I can make my watercolour timelapses without them being in the way. I've drunk some coffee to keep me awake which seemed to work but because I ate the wrong stuff for lunch without anything healthy to keep it under control I had a bit of a chrones attack so I took some pain killers that worked (thank goodness...) as I don't want a repeat of another stressed mind like yesterday I took an anti-depresense to stop being agitated because of my medication not working for my autism because of it going through me with the chrones attack happening. Then I had an email from the University of Lincoln about one of my grades which is Module Grade & Feedback and the mark is 56/100! Woppee!! XD So now I have to wait until either 8th July or the 7th August for the rest of the grades to be reviewed. *shaking with fear*. Now my mum has gone out somewhere that I have no idea where which is typical as I need to tell her the big news of my recent grade but I did tell my dad while he was having a bath and he seems please as I expected. ^^ I hope me and mum can move her stuff of the conservantry work bench as soon as she comes back from whatever she's doing because I'm getting a tad impatient with it. It's good my dad's back from his holiday as I've missed him very much. So that's about it now I'm going to plan my next timelapse. Talk to you later guys!
So yesterday my dad gave me a GPS stand-like thing for when I do my claymation using my Kindle Fire, which has the app Lapse It on it, so I can film my latest animations with it because at the moment I'm uploading my old stuff to my sites that are good enough for people to watch. So now I need to move mum's stuff off the work bench in the conservantry that is going to be my set for filming that mum's going to help me move on Saturday hopefully and once I've done that and the weather's cooled down I can start filming! ^^ What I'm doing today is making banana bread and then go to buy a box with my mum to store my characters from the Sealion episodes I've created a while ago that I'll be filming again so I can still do my timelapses on my art desk in the mornings of the weekend from 6:00am - 9:30am because those plasticine characters are on my art desk and in the way at the moment. So that's the plan for me and I hope you guys like it because I do. XD Talk later!
Hello everyone! guess what? I won the fourth place trophy for my animation "Dinner Time"! XD I can't believe that happened! I'm so please with myself I mean I know it's not first place or even third place but it's still a trophy at the end of the day so I'm happy nonetheless. ^^ I'll keep this up guys and maybe, just maybe, I might win at a higher level. Thanks very much for your support guys. Until next time then!
Hey everyone! I decided to get my dad to help me find my old animations I did since I was still at school and he found them for me! So what I've done now is edit them by adding voices, sound effects and music to them and now I can upload them to my sites! I was so upset thinking I might of lost them because of not realising how important they are to me as I wanted before to get rid of them as I didn't care for them but I know now that they are just as important as my newer animations. So if you guys like claymation and cartoons please come check them out here, DeviantArt or on my Youtube! ^^ Talk to you guys later!
