An Introduction of Sorts

So this is the first entry on my illustration blog.
I've been meaning to get up a blog for ages, but I've kept putting it off for various reasons, most of them superficial (couldn't think of a good name, just generally bad at updating, etc). I'm not quite sure what I'm going to post here (besides the obvious), but my general thoughts on the matter are that blogs should be used for writing and documenting in a more informal manner than a website. I tried writing this entry in a more formal tone, but it failed miserably, so I'm not even going to try: I just come off sounding awkward and fake, and that's the last thing that I want. I'm a big fan of using your personality to shape who you are and what you represent, being honest and above all really believing in what you say, whether its through visual mediums or just the written word. Some people are going to disagree with me on this viewpoint, but that's fine.
At the moment my blog is looking kind of ugly and nondescript, but I hope to rectify that soon - cookie cutter layouts drive me insane. I'm planning to get up a portfolio website sometime in the near future, but there's a good chance that I won't get around to it until the semester is over. So for now, this blog will have to do.
Alright, that's enough of me babbling for one night. Entry is now closed.
