Stupid app...

This ArtRage app keeps blinking out on me. Everytime I'm drawing it cuts off and I lose all my efforts. I think I need to file complaint, I didn't pay to put up with this crap. I already have enough to deal with right now (see last post)...

Still I was able to pull off another simple pic, of my bird again. He's just so cute, and this one came out little better than the first. Now if only this app will behave...

A quick doodle

Another one of them sleepless nights, another bouts with the infamous d-mode. It just doesn't get easier with time, eh?
A quick and dirty doodle on my ArtRage of my new pet bird, Mango. He's a conure, got green cheeks and red belly and character as colorful as the feathers. Now this isn't all that great, but think about it, I'm doing this on an iPod and u know how big the screen is.
Someday I hope to get one of them overhyped iPad, and then the real fun will begin...

So what happened?

Like the title of this post says, so my answer, in short so I don't bore myself to death, the past few years has been pretty blah. First in Oct 2010 my mom gets diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma in the colon. It required chemotherapy, which we all know isn't pretty. Thankfully there was no need for surgery, but the treatment took four months, and seeing her dealing with it during the time and the aftermath was hard. And since I'm the only kid living at home with the parents(in part because I'm still jobless) I got the heavy load of running all the chores around the house(course I'm used to it but it's been doubled). And if that wasn't enough I had to put up with all her occasional emotional rollercoasters and I can't even complain about it cause I know why. So her chemotherapy went well and the cancer is obliterated from her system, recovery is another story. Then two months before the end of last year she gets shingles, and if u are wondering what that is, well chances are your grandparents probably had it so u can ask them about it cause words here is just hopelessly inadequate to describe it...
And well this year just when I thought the storm is calming I get the second half of the one-two punch: my dad is diagnosed with gastric cancer. And in his case he needs a chemotherapy and surgery. My only response to this is one long siiiiiiiiiiiiiiggggggggggghhhhhhh..........

Its quite depressing yeah. I feel pretty stressed to the bone. All that is really helping me to relax is this IPod wi it's endless capabilities and not to mention this dreamy pic adorning the wallpaper of this device(if u don't know who it is well here's a hint: you can see him in the latest acclaimed flick SHAME):

I'm pretty nuts. But if I wasn't I wouldn't be here now would I?

Back in action!

Wow, after like almost three years of idleness, I'm back. So much has happened since my last post here, I could write a novel about it. I'll talk about that later in time, but first, I'm making my first ever post via IPod, it's a lot of fun. I'm even experimenting with the new ArtRage for mobile. Gonna get used to this nifty new toy and blogging about it, among other things. For now Just a couple of quick sketch with the app:
