Personal Quote: You have to really see what you intend to draw before you draw it.

Sometimes small things are big things

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 21, 2014, 5:26 PM


Like when you are well enough to drive to the art supply store, via the freeway, in early rush hour traffic. When you need a new package of 0.3mm-2H leads for a favorite mechanical pencil: and the manager who restocked them this morning is a friend you haven't seen in a year, because of your health issues. When you also need to get a new rubber cement pickup; and your friend gets excited when you tell her that your old one was borrowed, after you told the person who borrowed it that the pickup took the residual adhesive from those protective seals off of DVD and Blu-Ray cases. When you finally remember to ask how to go about cleaning that one third finished acrylic painting on canvas (and mending the really small tear in it), because your Fourth Edition copy of "The Artist's Handbook" predates acrylic paint archival technique; your friend calls over the one person on shift who can explain in detail how to clean and mend the canvas so you can finish the painting, and all you have to buy is a bottle of PVA glue because you already have the rest of the supplies on hand. SCORE!!!

Getting home safely, after picking up dinner on the way, was an added bonus.

Time to rest, the next two days are full of doctor appointments.

One of my favorite artists here on dA, :iconfrancis001:, has been off-line for awhile and just updated his journal:
An Update on Francis Tsai...
Journals / Personal

As some of you know, I was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) back in 2010. This is a fatal degenerative nerve disease with no known cause or cure. It affects people in different ways but typically ends in total paralysis and death due to respiratory failure, unless you undergo some invasive body modification procedures to help prevent that. Being an illustrator/concept artist, naturally it took my arms and hands first. I haven't held a pencil since early 2011. Bummer, but I discovered I could use an iPhone with my toes. I figured out how to use the Brushes app and made a handful of paintings. My toes have since lost the dexterity for that, so I've started using eye-gaze controlled technology to type and hopefully paint.

To help generate some income while I wait for science to get its stuff together, my awesome sister Marice has put together an online shop featuring some of my artwork. Please consider picking up some cool Tsai swag and sharing this post!

The store is located at:
