It appears that I've been doing something wrong. I hope you're use to that by now ;)
The last two emails were missing two videos. It looked pretty stupid to me so I'm sure it looked even weirder for you that I was referencing something that wasn't there... so I'm trying it again. This is just the two videos that didn't make it into the last couple emails... fingers crossed it works.
I hope you like them, they should provide a few laughs :)

Here is an illustration that Julia and I collaborated on for her brother's wedding card. It's always fun to do something handmade like this. I made another time lapse video of the work-in-progress. Some of it was cut out as I haven't decided if I want to buy the software to record my PC screen yet. I've started using Screencast-o-Matic and the free version only allows you to record in 15 minute clips, which it then renders automatically, forcing you to stop working until it is done. We were pressed for time, to say the least, lol, so we missed recording some action but I think you'll like this video as I talked over it, as opposed to playing music.
Get ready to enjoy the sweet melodic tone of my voice as it puts you to sleep... Those that know my monotone voice should survive the five minutes without being lulled to sleep ;) I did TRY to add some inflection... not sure if it came across though!
Congrats to the Two Winners of my First Print Giveaway, Dan S. and Tyson G.!!!
Thanks for entering the contest and following my art!!! It's nice to give back to people who have showed support along the way. Dan reminded me that I did a good amount of work on the Earth, Moon, Space print at Foxwoods, my old workplace. I was commuting two-plus hours everyday to college, in class 6 hours everyday Monday thru Friday, and working 30-plus hours a week at the casino.
I don't miss that!
All of my classmates were worried to leave school and I couldn't wait to get it over with, lol! It felt like I was in a fantasy world when I was there... I'm glad to be back in the real world now, despite the growing pains I felt the first year and a half out of school.
After Dan jogged my memory, I flashbacked to myself standing at the podium scratching lines into a metal plate in between parking cars at the casino. Then I would bring it back to school in the morning, give it a bath in acid and do it all over again that night! Thanks for the reminder Dan! :) All that hard work is starting to pay off.
Tyson, thank you for your encouragement and I hope to see some of your drawings soon!
