Hi. It’s been two months since my last update. Sorry for being a dead kid. My life has been a total mess for the past couple of weeks, and school has literally taken all the energy that’s left of me. Last sem was incredibly tiring, mentally and emotionally. I felt so burned out that I decided to withdraw from all the things I enjoy doing (including drawing). There were days when I thought of deleting this blog. Stupid, I know. A lot of things have been going through my mind lately. I wasn’t really doing well in school, I skipped classes, missed Haute Auteur Exhibit, ditched my high school friends, deleted my twitter account, left all messages unanswered, skipped meals and whatnot. I felt so miserable that I barely found a reason to do anything at all.. Everything just felt so wrong. Ugh. Idk. I guess we all go through that phase every once in a while?
But anyway, I think I’m feeling much better now. Everything’s starting to fall back into place. I guess I just needed a break from all the stress. Junior year has finally come to a close and I’m finally taking a rest from plates and other school-related stuff. I won’t be having a long summer vacation though, because next month I’ll be starting my internship already. I seriously need to make the most out of my remaining free days.
In the meantime, here’s a Hayley drawing for y’all. Remember that WIP project I posted last year? I finally found the time to work on it again.

Ron Mueck is a London-based photo-realist artist. Born in Melbourne, Australia, to parents who were toy makers, he labored on children’s television shows for 15 years before working in special effects for such films as “Labyrinth,” a 1986 fantasy epic starring David Bowie. In the early 1990s Mueck was commissioned to make something highly realistic, and was wondering what material would do the trick. Latex was the usual, but he wanted something harder, more precise. Luckily, he saw a little architectural decor on the wall of a boutique and inquired as to the nice, pink stuff’s nature. Fiberglass resin was the answer, and Mueck has made it his bronze and marble ever since.
