First things first...I finally got my grubby little hands on this masterpiece.
Expedition was a gift from my very generous sister, but I spent a little of my own money on this print

I greatly admire. I have a frame ready and everything. As you can see, it's pretty big. I want to hang it in the house proper, because it would just get lost in my bedroom. I hope my roommates don't mind.
I've decided that if I ever make money off of my art, I will only spend it on more art. Well, that is, after I've paid for the supplies to feed my art "habit." Hobbies are not cheap.
Speaking of hobbies, I bought some N-scale people and Quonset huts for use in future dioramas. I was impressed with the level of detail they managed to pack into these tiny plastic people.
I am modifying them to look like specific people from my Ilion story. Not an easy task, that's for sure. Here's one next to a handmade figure of the same person at the scale I usually work with. My camera cannot capture this kind of detail, so the pics are blurry.
It'll be a very busy quarter, but I graduate in June. Hopefully I'll have more time for art in my gap year before grad school, but for now, expect more sporadic posts of dioramas and drawings. I may be busy, but I can't stop the itch. Gotta keep making art wherever I can squeeze it in.
