Just a few portraits. Can you guess who they are?

1. Harry Reid, I hate politics.
2. Kelli Loosli (duh)
3. If you don't know how to read, it's Tony Rider.

A few words about Tony Rider. Go check out his website, he is the author of The Artists Complete Guide To Figure Drawing, and he came to guest speak at BYU last Wednesday. Although his methods to drawing are slow and unimaginative, I really did appreciate getting insight into his thought process, how he comes to see art. That's kind of what I believe, each work of art is a window into the idealist mind of its artist. It's the closest you'll ever come to being able to swap eyes with someone else, and it's something that absolutely deserves the attention of it's viewers.

The Outside World

So, after being in my room for about two days straight just working on my animation and homeworks and stuff, I finally got my courage together to take a shower and go outside. This is what I saw:

Yeah, I had forgotten how nice it is to go outside. Something about the fresh air and slow, strolling pace seems to encourage the best out of me, and I always return home feeling refreshed and renewed. Fall has always been a magical season for me, where the earth seems to take a somber tone as it prepares for winter.

About me

  • I'm action007
  • My real name is James Jackson
  • From Orem, UT, United States
  • Some may say, he is just a man. But others will tell you... that he really is just a man. I live in Orem, and I drive to BYU everyday in hopes of becoming an animator, which is a dream that I've had since I was a small child.
