Look at how clean my art table is! Holy crap!!
I enjoy creating things. I mean, I graduated from an art school, so I better enjoy it.
Anyway, I basically spent the entire day cleaning today. I spent a good chunk of that going through my art table and cleaning things up. I literally was dusting every single nook and cranny of the damn thing... so I'm pretty proud of what I have now. I went through everything that I had out and put away all my school artwork unless I wanted to keep it out here.
I came across my intro to photography notebook and I was going through it, and ended up finding a lot of my black and white developed photos.. I always enjoyed that part of photography. Even though my black and white ones didn't turn out as nice as the color ones, I felt so much more of a connection with all my b&w ones because I had put my sweat and time into actually developing it by hand. I never learned how to develop color film, so all my black and white photographs are very special to me.
I found two photos that really struck me, still. I'm not sure why, but I felt a sense of pride when I looked at them and wanted to frame them and put them on my wall immediately.. but suddenly I thought, "These are the originals! What if I fuck up something in the process of framing it...?" so.. I ended up scanning them. Hopefully I won't just leave it sitting around on my HDD, and actually print out copies and put them on my wall.
I don't know why these two struck me, but they did. They're not fantastic or masterpieces.. in fact the berry one is super under exposed... but I actually kind of like that about it. It's really texture-y and has a lot of weight to it. Honestly the berry one is the one that I like the most, but there was also something about the other one that struck me as well. I remember when I took these photos, and I never really imagined that they would come out like this.
Anyway enough about artsy-fartsy stuff. I hope to have these babies printed out and framed, and on my wall soon
On to what I was really going to post about. I... on a whim decided to continue the Arashi dream saga. This was actually requested by soothing_sight, so I thought I might as well since I've never really gotten a request before

Again, this took way. Longer. Than it should have. And now I'm going to sleep before I collapse
