dad and i made ribeyes, rare with seasoned salt and sauteed mushrooms in garlic salt and butter with an artichoke and caesar salad. *drool!* i am soooooooooo stuffed, but its a good kinda stuffed =)

we didnt go on the boat today, but we went to the pool and hung out with our new rafts and just talked a bit. talked a bit about art and business as we usually do. dad gave me the best bit of advice i think ive had in awhile, and id like to share it paraphrased of course:

"learn how to say 'i dont know'. if you say 'i know i know i know' then people figure you know everything and are too hot to trot to ask for help, so they dont want to have anything to do with you, but if you say 'i dont know' then people will stand in line to help you out, which in the end teaches you a lot more than you could have ever learned on your own."

and that, my friends, is something i really need to do. really put it into perspective.

with that in mind, i think im going to try to contact some storyboard artists so i can ask them questions about the business and start developing my "relationship portfolio" to get some connections to help me along in my education. i think that it will really do me some good.

art wise, i think i abandoned that one wolf drawing, but doodled a wolf dragon instead. ok, so it looks a little like wolfmage, but theres only so many ways you can keep a winged wolf/dragon simple without it looking like SOMEONE so i hope he doesnt mind. *if it bugs anyone ill take it down.* now i just gotta figure out if i wanna upload it onto yerf or VCL. i dont like the VCL much anymore, but im not sure if its really yerf worthy since it lacks a background or even shading. the cat dragon on the otherhand is just a pencil doodle but it has some background.
ugh. im overanalyzing again. i think thats what TV does to me, not to mention i havent been able to talk to tavis much. cell reception is horrid here for some odd reason and its made our convos rather bitter since we can hardly hear each other and its frustrating *sigh* that sucks balls.

ok, i think im going to get a little more drawing done before dad asks me to help clean up again. were leaving early in the AM tomorrow and i should be back by afternoon time =) *wag wag wag* just hope i dont have not going to be fully awake.
