There and Back again

Mon Apr 7, 2014, 5:44 AM by Sheego:iconsheego:
To whom it may concern- The month of February 2014 is a month I will not soon forget for it was by far the worst month I could've experienced with various bad things happening that I had to comply with,and just overall accept theses things as part of something you just do not have a hold of,the universe takes care of its children like a stern parent,and us,the human race, like small children will not always understand her ways,sometime she might reward us,other times she takes things away, for higher purpose,coincidence,or just bad luck,we will never know.
There are a majority of things I will not get into,but rather just this one,and that being my laptop being stolen out of my car along with my external HDD,my Wacom tablet,and about 6 years worth of drawings,sketches,and stories. It was shock,frustration,and a lot of cursing and swearing,hoping with such fervor that the person would die a painful death. You realize as a person what your tipping point(s) are,and me,being a fairly simple person that doesn't need a lot can,and has reached a level of such anger that I haven't felt since my "angsty" teenage years,but what do you expect when someone takes something from you that makes you express yourself in creative ways? I would see myself just being really quiet and just first express the anger by simply playing "Bioshock: Infinite" again,you'd be surprised how well shooters can help you quell your rage,nothing like shooting up baddies in a city in the sky,that also has some sickly sense of freedom,and at the same time a sense of entrapment. All the while I was still trying to remain optimistic with what had happened to me. Yes,the laptop was gone,but at least the majority of my biggest drawings were posted online,so in a way they weren't really gone. I wasn't really making "money" with this particular set of drawings,but they do hold a form of sentimental value. In many ways during the month of March I have tried to look for higher meaning behind that "zone of negative energy" that was all around me during the month of February,and I basically concluded with "Stepping forward in life",at least when it pertained to the drawings. Maybe this was in some strange way the universe's way of saying "If you aren't going to do anything with your talent I might as well give you a wake up call". Which is funny because as April dawned I've had nothing but good things happen in the form of big projects,big concept ideas,and much support from friends and family. This was just one of those setbacks in life that happens to the best of us. In the end my laptop was stolen,but not my talent,my creative way of thinking. If the universe was indeed testing me how I would react to this misfortune,if I would break down,and just said "fuck it,I don't want to do this anymore",or if I would come out stronger and reach a higher level of clarity and push forward. I chose the latter,I choose to be an artist,for that is who I am,and that is who I will be until I die. I win...

Thanks for the Llama, maybe you'd wanna collaborate on some "dark art" as I read in your journal :) It's my area ;)
Sheego Jan 11, 2014  Student General Artist
Hey no problem,Sally ann :). Sure,we could collaborate and figure out how to make our styles mesh into this one great piece of work ^^.
Thank you for taking the time to read my journal hahaha. Your sweet :). And I saw your work yeah,I see that the dark art is your specialty :D ;).

haha yeah Vernon I like your style a lot and I think we could come up with something great :) I really like the idea of "Groovy Dark Inspiring" art it makes me think of a "modern hippy movement"
Sheego Jan 11, 2014  Student General Artist
Thank you so much,yes,that is exactly what I was thinking,great minds right? Where have you been all my life? No really. You live out in Arizona,a place I seriously want to not only visit,but if I had the money would live out there,in the open desert,everything being so much mystical there,try some ayahuasca and become one with the universe,also the fact that you are a modern hippy just makes my day now,it really does. You have some wicked art,but again,the dark trippy stuff that one could expand on with some great music from "TooL".
