So i've been working on the album cover for Hotel St. George's new record, Indian School. This will be their fifth release in two and a half years-- and the fourth I've done the cover for.
I'm also almost done with my part of the Fever Sleeves video for Vampyroteuthis that I started over a year ago. I say "my part" even though I've created everything for it-- because Tony (singer of F.S.) is going to be editing it, and hopefully making it look like his lips are moving in sync with the lyrics.
Work has been getting better- I got a new iMac and photoshop is on the horizon-- and also school is in session so the professors have other people to pick on. It's not perfect by any means but it's a LOT better than it was.
There have been concerts galore going on in San Diego. I have been to a lot. Maybe someday I'll post pictures here, like I used to. I think everyone is on Facebook or Tumblr instead of here, but I'll never be able to fully leave live journal. Famous last words?
I am sick of being broke, quite frankly. I might try to find a new job, I mean I have half heartedly tried, but there doesn't seem to be anything in San Diego. I did actually get some dough for doing the Fever Sleeves video, which is amazing, as most bands do not pay for doing stuff for them. It's not that I do it for the money but I sure wouldn't mind a little bit of compensation here and there. If I could make a living off of that I would surely go that route.
I have been considering submitting to Threadless but I don't deal well with rejection when I draw something. Stupid, right? Well, I can't help it. I remember the few times bands have rejected my artwork and I am not happy about it happening but I guess that's part of life. I guess the analogy is not every song they write is worth keeping. I don't FEEL like I have a huge ego, maybe I do, maybe I need to not be so precious about that stuff.
