I really need to become more active on this site.  It's been too long since I last posted anything.

anyway, I recently finished a twelve-week internship at the Ripley's Believe it or Not! in Times Square, New York.  It was a lot of fun, and I was really sad when it ended, but then something wonderful happened.  They offered me a job.  and I took it.  So now, I have a fun job, which pays decently, in a location that I look forward to visiting every day, and where I get to do something that I love.  and on the other days, I still have my job at the Home Depot, which I hate.  The downside to all of this is that I have found less and less time to practice drawing.  I had actually drawn the four main animatronics from FNAF on my tablet, but I haven't gotten around to posting them.  I still owe drawings to at least three people, but I haven't found the time or the motivation to do them.  if anyone has any advice on how to get my creative spark back, I would greatly appreciate it.

I am now about ten weeks into a twelve-week internship at the Ripley's Believe It or Not! in Times Square.  I could not be happier than when I am working there every Tuesday.  Unfortunately, every other day of the week, I'm still at the beckon call of my other job.  The very definition of irony is making Associate of the Month in a job that you hate.  That job has pretty much sucked all the creativity out of me, which hurts because my dad got me a tablet for the holidays and I've been practicing drawing with it on and off, though my only real results so far have been some crappy renditions of the four main animatronics from Five Nights at Freddy's.  I've been procrastinating on at least three gift drawings for the better part of a year now, and I just can't muster up the drive to start on them.

Recently started watching Transformers RID 2015, and I am very pleased with the direction it looks to be going in.  We have a full team of autobots, a tangible decepticon threat, and a legitimate excuse for being on Earth again, all without the direct involvement of Optimus Prime or Megatron.  Much as I like the start of the series, there is a direction the franchise could go in that I don't think we've seen before.  I want to see a transformers series that takes place after the war is over, where we see them in the process of rebuilding, and where decepticons are not inherently evil and autobots are not inherently good, sort of like the case that we see in various incarnations of the X-men.

On a downer note, we recently found out that my grandfather is suffering from several health problems, including diabetic neuropathy, a minor cerebellar stroke, and apparently something has gone wrong between his first two thoracic vertebrae and if he doesn't have surgery, he may end up paralyzed.  What we need to do is find a nursing home for him and my grandmother that's close enough to our place that we can visit them more easily, rather than having to drive to the neighboring state every weekend.

If anybody wants to talk, or has a drawing request, feel free to leave a comment.  I could use the conversation.

Newbie Artist Training Grounds IV Day 15 Final by Xeno-the-Hedgehog
Newbie Artist Training Grounds IV Day 15 Final
Draw any/all of the previous themes.  Okay, so I redid yesterday's theme, and I think it turned out a lot better this time.  I'm just sad that this is the last day of NATG IV.  I was really getting back into the swing of drawing again, and now I probably won't until the next one.

Newbie Artist Training Grounds IV Day 14
Draw a pony celebrating/triumphant pony.  This...I have no idea why it turned out like this.  I had a much different image in my head.  Oh well, maybe tomorrow's will look better.

Newbie Artist Training Grounds IV Day 13 by Xeno-the-Hedgehog
Newbie Artist Training Grounds IV Day 13
Draw a pony traveling/family.  I'm sorry this one is so late.  It has been an exhausting week at work.  Anyway, as soon as I saw the theme for the thirteenth, I immediately thought of a certain phone service ad that I had been seeing online a little while back.  I couldn't find the ad when I tried searching for it, so I decided to wing it.  I don't know why, but never have I laughed so hard at one of my own drawings.

I enjoy all fields of art and science.

I have a soft spot for cats.

I like to work with my hands.

I cannot bring myself to kill an animal, regardless of species.

I have a paralyzing phobia of wasps. A couple of years back, I came home to a house full of them.

I believe that violent cartoons and video games do not result in bad children. Careless, ignorant parents result in bad children.

My dad is a Star Trek fan.

I collect Transformers, Godzilla Movies, Yu-Gi-Oh! cards, My Little Pony figurines, and ALIEN memorabilia, among other things.

My favorite books include Life of Pi by Yann Martel, and the one-volume printing of Bone by Jeff Smith.

My favorite artists and authors include H.R.Giger, Clive Barker, Tim Burton, Don Hertzfeldt, Al Hirschfeld, and Rod Serling, to name a few.

I'm a huge fan of the Silent Hill franchise.

I don't understand why New Jersey is the butt of so many jokes. I've lived here for over ten years, and I don't see anything wrong with it.

I graduated from the college where my parents first met.

Whenever my dad hates one of my sculptures, I know that my professor will love it.

I have an account on Steam

I don't do drugs, I get the same effect from standing up too quickly.

I'm the only member of my household that has never learned to play a musical instrument or read musical notes, but I do have an ear for music.

I have an autistic spectrum disorder.

Growing up, I was teased because I was always the shortest member of any group I hung out with. My height was in the first percentile for children my age, and my growth rate was almost nonexistent, so my parents put me on growth hormone supplement from when I was ten until just before I started college. I am now the tallest living member of my family.

If you bothered to read this entire list, thank you.
