Gully Foyle is my Name and Terra is my Nation
Here’s something in the way of a confidence boost. I just finished this book cover for “The Stars My Destination” by Alfred Bester and for once, I’m actually proud of something I did. SHOCKER! That might have something to do with the fact that I’ve have the idea for this illustration in my head for 2 years ever since I finished “The Stars My Destination” and never had the time (ok I’ve had tons of free time. I mean the confidence) to actually just whip it out. Also MCAD is having me show at the annual portfolio day tomorrow so what the hell. It’s a good excuse to make some new work.
Speaking of new work, I’m STILL LOOKING FOR A FUCKING JOB! It’s almost been 6 months since graduation, meaning my student loans are about to go into repayment. I’m not even being picky anymore, I’m seriously at the end of my rope and just need a regular pay check. Outside of that, as far as updates go I am now living with my wonderful girlfriend Jacquie and have been for about 2 months now. She’s in the midst of finals and stressing the fuck out. She needs a break. I guess it’ll be Friday when I post this so my oldest friend Danielle will be graduating today which is exciting cause it means she’ll be moving back to Minneapolis in a few months.
Oh, and one more thing, me and my friends at the Twin Cities Avengers want you to come to Dyke March on June 26th at 7PM that congregates on the steps of the Walker Art Center. It’s a fun and fabulous demonstration against the over commercialized aspects of PRIDE. This years theme is “Consent is Sexy” teaching us all that we should ask before we grab some tail. Hope to see you there. (By the way you don't need to be a Dyke to march. Everyone's invited)
