Late Updaters Anonymous

Hello, my name is Ajani...
*Deep breath*

...and I'm a late updater.

I can tell you that I've been really busy, and it's hard to manage things while getting adjusted to a foreign country, along with a million other excuses.
But the fact is that It's been more than a month since I've updated, and I'm behind on so many things.

I hope I can really be on the ball with things from now on, but I can't make that promise really. I am having a lot of issues here, and my environs are not as suited as I would like them to be for updating this blog.

In any case, it's not all for naught, and I do and will continue to update. I just don't want to disappoint people and say that I'll update every week to have some crazy event happen that prevents me from doing so.

The bottom line is, that I am here, I am updating. Don't give up hope, there is a bright future for this blog, I just have to work out a lot of kinks in my own life and get myself back into things the way they were before.

Alright, so enough of that...without further ado, I present the sketches.

If you weren't aware, part of the reason I'm so busy is because I teach middle school English here in Japan. The above picture was a sketch of the "Sports Day" practice session that they had in september.

One of my favorite sketches thus far. Guy is definitely getting his 40 winks.

I briefly (and I stress briefly) was going to a studio here and had an opportunity to make a few dozen prints of one of my sketches. It's not the best in my opinion, but it was a good experience. I like printmaking, but I just don't have time to do anything with it now.

Great work...thoughtful and swiftly executed, which makes them all the more impressive! I came across your site when googling paper making in NYC.
