Added 1 new A* page:Okay because it's super-late again and I don't want to take the time it would take to blog about something I have to look up, I'll jabber about myself again! Have I mentioned that for the past x months I've been drawing A* while wearing earplugs? I don't think I have! I started doing that well I think what finally drove me to it was persistent window-open recorder lessons undertaken by someone in the apartment building across the way. There's also that dog in that third-floor apartment across the other way that barks all day (and sometimes night) long through the window its absentee owner obligingly leaves open. And kids at recess at the school across the street, people stomping through the hallway, helicopters buzzing overhead especially in summer, etc etc, hello modern life! So anyway I was having trouble sitting down and drawing one day and I figured it couldn't hurt to block some of those things out so in went the ear plugs and then it seemed to me the drawing went a little better than it had been going, so I stuck to it! Some days I think gosh this will be dull with the sensory deprivation and all but once I get going I really seem to get focused in on the drawing, so, I think it helps. (And I *used* to listen to music while drawing, and back then the outside noises didn't bother me so much, but then I decided the music was distracting. ; )
