There are some aspects of this piece that bother me. But I'm still going to post it. I haven't made anything original lately. I picked up Lost again and it sparked my inspiration to make icons again. Its somewhat ridiculous, I've made more icons in last week than in the past year. But I'm glad and they're turning out really nice. I've also made a few mini movie icons which I was never successful in before. Colorblind has slowed down, but I still have my outline and I know where I'm going. I just have to sit down and write the damn thing.

Elevator Love LettersCollapse )

And a pimp: Pandora.
Its a great website, part of the Music Genome Project. You enter in a band/artist you like and they generate a "radio station" with similar music.

Another of my favorites, I loved this series of photographs so much I just had to do something with them. You can see the original ones (+ more) Here, Though You Have To Join The Community

You Need To Consider What You Think You Are Worth, Is That All You Deserve?Collapse )
This piece is about nervousness and anxiety; deep breaths it will all be okay.

So, this is the first piece I'll post. Its one of my favorite right now. Its titled "Vying" and features lyrics from the Ani Difranco song "Fuck You".

The Difference Between What You Want, What You Need, And What You're Going To GetCollapse )

The piece is about finally realizing when its time to give up on someone. The perspective is slightly regretful, slightly angry, mostly bitter. Its the calm (and long time coming) acceptance of defeat.

Well, this is Dire Oui. Which, if you don't know, means "Say Yes" in French. Say Yes is the title of one of my favorite Elliott Smith songs. I suppose I chose French because I'm excited about my trip to France in a month.

I've created this community for myself. Hopefully my friends won't discover this and if they do hopefully they won't tell me so I can live in blissful ignorance. I plan to upload my original designs as opposed to my fandom icons and such, which I'll continue to post in my normal journal. I'll probably upload music, other art, writing and pieces of Coloblind as well. I'm basically going for my own little collage journal I guess.

If you stumble across this community you're welcome to join, though no one else will be granted posting rights. Everything is going to be public unless LJ decides to give me crap about copy right issues and such, in which case I'll then go FO. Doubt it though (guess I shouldn't be too careless though, strikethrough anyone?).

So, if you're watching, welcome to Dire Oui. This is the madness of my mind.
