Well. I am well aware that the topic itself was "Diary", and I have toyed with several ideas in connection with it, but in the end I am just posting a recent page of my everyday Art Journal (presently a Moleskine). It was created on the way to my in-laws in the car, just for fun and to kill the time. Kinda
zombie woman or what.
I have gotten emails on 3 new comments of this blog but for the life of me I do not understand where they are or where they have disappeared in the blog (i.e. why aren't they showing up as usual, among the comments below). I do not moderate comments, etc. It might just be a short-term blogger melt down, however, I wanted to let you know that it was not me, I swear.
It is annoying and hasn't happened so far.
UPDATE (a day later): the blog still does not show the new comments. I apologize - but no clue what to do.
UPDATE 2: it seems to me blogger en bloc is experiencing this problem (not just me). A whole lot of blogs have the same problem. I reported it (there is a whole section now as well as a separate form for this concrete issue). We'll see.
UPDATE 3: it is about noon, July 7, and it seems to me blogger at last recovered.***

In Context (pencil drawing and collage with digital background)
I am not very happy with the result: the statement is weak and pretty commonplace-y. I have had a relatively large pencil drawing (the person in the roots) for months and been waiting for the Real Thought to finish the trunk. Well, I just lost my patience and finished it a couple of hours ago. The digital background helped it a bit, and who knows, it might end up as a totally different image in the future...
Wanted to make a photorealistic colorado beetle (it is coming some time)
with colored pencils (halfly done), but meanwhile I got entangled with
this and felt like finishing it. All together approx. 15-18 8-10 hours. I am
falling in love with painting in Photoshop, I guess. Never thought it
would happen, until I discovered some really cool techniques. (As it happens, the whole adventure started with a certain tut.)
Under the drawing there are fragments of the three books which have formed me all my life; without them I would not be what I am now. As a matter of fact, I would not be at all. But it is a long story. The quoted texts are from A kitömött hattyú by Péter Esterházy, Shakespeare Our Contemporary by Jan Kott and Iskola a határon by Géza Ottlik.
