HEAVY SIGH

Back in Miami for two months.

In need of a display to do some decent painting without my imac. Any body have some cheap (but good) ones for sale?

I'm kinda lax with my commission related paperwork. Which I suppose is why I've been ripped off a few times?

Hey ya'll what's goin' on...

That year went kinda quick right?

New stuff in the pipeline. There's probably some old stuff I haven't had a chance to  submit yet, I'll try to do that this week.

It's finally happened, I've become one of those artists that are too busy to produce personal work on a regular basis. A bittersweet epiphany.

Thanks for looking, reading, fav'ing, and watching.

Mattahan.com may or may not come soon.

The Truest Lie

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 14, 2008, 7:34 PM
I was hating on this piece since I made it. I just felt it was missing something (bears probably). I made it shortly before releasing 3 Days Later, for the included tutorial, around October.

But now that It's out there and people like it, I guess it's not so bad.

I taught a class at a local high school a couple weeks ago. It was cool, I'd never really done anything like that before. I'd like to do it again, around January, after exams.

Umm... that's it.

How Do You Stay Motivated?

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 26, 2008, 5:52 PM
The drive to work on my book was omnipresent when I was back home. Now I'm in the states and the laziness has a stranglehold on me. I'm still interested in making the book, so it's not lack of motivation. And the work itself is interesting. But since I came back I have found it more difficult to get started.

When you have a large project to work on, how do you stay motivated?

Maybe I'm still just tired from the traveling.

Contests/Commissions/Books/Jamaica?

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 14, 2008, 7:54 PM
I haven't entered a great many contests in my lifetime. I don't really know why, I guess the thought never occurred to me. I recently won a contest and lets just say my phone bill isn't that huge of a problem anymore.

Still a problem though. So does anyone know where I can find some contests to enter?


I'm wide open for commissions. Evelyn only cost it's commissioner ~$250.

I'm working on a comic, author/artist Frank Miller style. I'm not much of a writer though so if anyone has any creative writing tips, please share.

Artbook is done, just need to upload it to lulu. I've got a 14.4kbs connection here so that might be a while.

Despite the slow internet, I think I'd like to stay here in Jamaica. It took a little getting used to (no running water, red dirt), but I prefer it here. Weather, Girl(s), Food etc. No one here likes my taste in music though.

This is the Nas album I've been waiting for. I'll just pretend tracks 4 & 5 aren't on it and call it a classic. And here I thought he fell off, silly me.

I made some long distance calls here in Jamaica, My phone bill is $1600.

Please commission me.

Journal Entry: Wed May 28, 2008, 3:43 PM
It's that time of year again, I'll be in Jamaica until mid-August. I leave on the 8th (or the 15th). I would love to do some commissions before then, hint hint (COMMISSION ME!).

Also, a BUUF related release before I go...

Was once 18, now I'm one year older with reason.

Commission me as a gift, peep my wishlist, or just give me some money.

I guess you could buy me a sub too, I'd be cool with that. Ironic that my previous sub ended on my birthday.

Ghostface is 39 now.

Damn, DA has a lot of ads

I miss NY already.

My book is coming along nicely.

Got some commissions going, so that's cool. I'm still open if anyone's interested.

Sorry if I bummed you guys out with my last journal. Thanks for the support though. You guys are pretty cool.

I'm watching arrested development 24/7 on hulu. Never have I been more amused.

I need some new clothes.

My iMac is huge! After using the Macbook exclusively for 6 weeks, I'm lost in it's 24 inch, wide-viewing-angle-having, color-correct goodness. I finally saw Thieves in the Night as it actually is.

um...

I do like Miami's clouds though.

Wassup with the Turkish spam DA?

I guess i'll be there. Saturday probably.

I look like the guy in Wide Remote. Or if you're feeling brave you can look at this photo: mattahan.googlepages.com/Photo…

I don't have a booth or anything but you might see me around.

So I'm working on my artbook. I'm aiming for 64 pages, full color. It will include a tutorial and more commentary than I've ever provided on my various pieces. That's right, real insight on my process instead of ellipses, random trivia, or (seemingly) arbitrary rap lyrics!

Don't actually have anything to say here. Maybe I shouldn't have updated my journal with this. Hmm...

I might just stay up here.
