New art journal!!  Thanks to my teacher discount at Michaels (there are financial perks yet!) I got a pretty nice one.  I was trying to badly for the first entry of the new year to be all yellow and optimistic and shit, but fuck it.  My current mood is pensive and the whole point of an art journal is to capture your state at that moment.

Text: Look at me, he said to her.  His arms and legs jerked.  Look at me.  You got your wish.  I have learned how to love.  And it’s a terrible thing.  I’m broken.  My heart is broken.  Help me.

Probably one of the most powerful books I’ve ever read.  It’s a children’s book.  Why, oh why, don’t people realize the universality of this genre?

I’m trying to finish this for my dad’s Christmas present (since he bought me the VERY NICE and SO LOVELY set of polychromos pencils) until I remembered the only person in the family that is obsessed with horses is… me.  Also, I can’t get the eyes right for the life of me, so I’m thinking about leaving them as is and just telling people he’s possessed and not to judge because maybe God just hasn’t saved his soul yet.
