I've been exercising the Pilates way for the last week because I have a photoshoot coming up this Saturday and I wanted to look my best... And I'm getting there!!
I lost 6lbs (129lb now, aiming for 115lb) in the last week from a combination of good diet and pilates!! I'm sooooo excited because I feel more confident and sexy that I KNOW I'll bring it to the shoot!
The Photoshoot this Saturday will be in Placentia, CA at 1pm with a theme I've been dying to do... A HALLOWEEN SHOOT! They'll have everything for me, from makeup and hair to sets of outfits as well as the a great photographer. All I have to do is model, and I get to bring my own outfit as well!!
I'm soooooo excited that I can't possibly express it enough in one journal entry!
As far as my career life goes, its still at a standstill... no job, no response from applications, and I'm beginning to loose confidence in my works. But fear not! I'm not giving up!! I want to move out! I want to become a famous and well-respected artist! I want to travel the world with the money I make!! I will become a Character Designer because I'm a greatly talented artist and strong gal!
I'm working on side pieces at the moment, and, as some friends have seen, I've had my art published in local newspapers to promote Mt. Sierra College, Thanx to my school. Here's a WIP of the piece I'm currently working on:
She will be colorful and bold because she is a Sky Pirate. The BG will be large and elaborate with airships and an amazing sky. A dynamic upshot(worms-eye) view to emphasize her power. It'll have a noticeable comedic feel in it as well.
I don't have any photos of the publications, but maybe soon, and I'll update accordingly... Hope everyone is doing great and so so sorry about the lack of responses back to comments, mail and such, I'll try to get to those as soon as possible.
