So for the last 6-0 days I have not been able to do a journal update. And complaining to DA to get it fixed has accomplished nothing. I know several of my friends here on DA are having the save issue as well. So till this matter is resolved, I have to do do this through my gallary. Sorry. blame DA.
So here is the BIG UPDATE....Ready?.... Sitting down?.....Brace yourself......Quess who made front cover in international publicated Circle Magazine???????? ME!!!! Yup. My art will be on the cover of the Samhain/Halloween issue. There was some issues in the process but this weekend while I was away I found out and I SO FRIGGIN HAPPY!!! Totally cool stuff.
I think I can now say that if I were to die tomorrow, I would die content. I never do my art for money, even though I sure can use it. And I am not really doing it for fame. Well not like some people who think its all about fame. For me, my art is all about doing art to make people happy in some way. And yeah, it is nice that I now have a mark on the world; something to just say "Hey, I am/was here."
Anyway, aside from that, been spending my weekends in the country at Dryads Rest. More work happening there but sadly the LARP village has not been built yet. As much as I wish it was. In two weekends I will be going back there for a work party and camping out at the hobbit house thats there. Then I will be going back on Labor Day weekend for a huge gathering, not work. There is predicted a huge gathering that weekend. While camping at the hobbit house I plan to hold a second Lammas ritual; decorate with corn dollies and corn bundles and all. Maybe get in some tribal drumming, which I have not done since I moved to Seattle 4 years ago.
Upcoming is more pagan art and praying to get more fantasy art done as well.
