Summer Project and Stuff...

Firstly, I would like to apologise for the lack of posting lately,the reason is that i have been really busy , trying to find a new home, packing and planning my trip around Europe for a whole month.

Night Trains or Home for a month

T-Shirt Tie Dye or Creative Time

Yes, I will be going on my trip starting next week, and arriving back on the 22nd of August.
In this trip, I will visit a few countries in Europe- Belgium, Holland, Germany, Italy, France and Spain.
Exploring the most beautiful sights that the old continent has to offer in its metropolis. To add more adventure to the trip, I will be interrailing for the whole time, meaning everything will be done by train, regional, intercity, fast and night trains, you name it. Although, public transports can be quite tedious, I hope this trip will appear different, and be a good experience. Also, I will be camping throughout the cities around Europe, Amsterdam, Venezia or even Rome. This will help my trip to become unique where no 5 stars hotels or cheap hostels are going to be at sight.
In the end of this trip, I hope I will be inspired by the different tastes of the different countries, astonished with the views, had a marvelous experience and more importantly had fun.

This prologue of the post situates and points to the actual subject of the post, despite will be going abroad, my summer project won't suffer, I will be taking with me, my old and important friend sketchbook. Thus, the drawings will be towards this sound-scape project. When arriving from the trip I still have another 3 weeks, to finalize it, so I will use my trip as a pre-production, the gathering of ideas and sketches.


This Summer Project is a wide project because almost everything is possible, with only a soundscape given, we are asked to create a outcome, in any form we wish, concept art, 3d models or even an animation. Being listening my soundtrack, n.11, for the past few days I have almost a clear idea what I want to do, and I guess it will imply some sort of animation exploring an eerie environment, the idea of the isolate and creepy , is presented throughout my soundtrack and it is its strongest characteristic. However, more posts will arrive shortly, with a more profound insight into the soundtrack, and some further research, to get me set for the drawing room :)...

To finalise, and touching in the drawing subject, it has not been erased at all from my everyday life, for my own good and to gain knowledge, I undertook a challenge of drawing a little everyday so I wont lose practice and be able to quickly put ideas into paper.

Creativity at all costs :)

Keep tuned...

Likewise, Rubes - I experienced a pang of envy when I read about your adventure to come; don't quote me, but inter-railing may indeed be 'summer project' enough - so don't get stressed about stuff, just eat the elephant slice-by-slice... :-) Looking forward to seeing those drawings (and my tie-dye t-shirt!) :-)

Oh - just some advice - you describe yourself as a 'simple young artist' - unfortunately, 'simple' has rather negative connotations, so I suggest you find an alternate way to express your wide-eyedness...
