Woah, awesome stuff you have here, Menasha! It's cool that you get to draw what you love in art class, back when I had such a class I never had an opportunity like this... You sure made a beautiful expression in the first panel, very emotional!

As for your lady friend, maybe she didn't realise what you meant to draw; at first when I scrolled down I thought it was one of those fancy artistic nude painting. But then again I'm retarded when it comes to stuff like noticing the depth behind a painting >_<


I was quite happy with this oppertunity so I jumped right onto it with something I've never done before but was interested in trying. Our project was just to draw something personal.

Alot of my classmates liked how I made a comic hah.

Ill be doing more comics for sure there fun to figure out!

Maybe she didnt understand but that one actaully wasnt all that deep... she just had me thinking of sex alot so i thought I would do something related to that.

*Just copied and pasted this from my sketchbook on another site... I havnt been here for awhile but I havnt forgoten! I'm actaully not sure if I should be posting this here or not...

A friend of mine named Kendra, who I've mentioned a few times in my sketchbook, is to put it bluntly being sexually harassed at her work and it may be excolateing into sexual assault. This man looks to be in late 50's.

She worked at the Tuscany club in the summer at a day camp, and now she works at the front desk, mostly night shifts. She's alone nightshifts along side the janitor from what I understand. Last week she told me this man -the janitor- had asked her questions about her sex life, religion, and her believes in god. This started to get me worried and I told her parents last night -I regret not doing this sooner, stupidly I didn't even think of it as a problem right away... the moment I realized how wrong it was I immediately went. I honestly can't believe my self not realizing this problem sooner-

The fact that I went to her parents stressed her out and she was very angry at me. This morning she called me and wanted to talk. She was very emotional explaining to me how if would be very very selfish and wrong of her if she was the reason I decided not to go search further education, and the matters.

Eventually after discussing the conversation I had with her parents more indetail she told me that man had brought her down stairs in the club the other night. Told her that he really liked her, -this one is hazy, she was a little paniky but I think Kendra said he had kissed her- but I know for sure Kendra told me he had grabed her ass. This had all happened after he had asked her to kick out some people from the gym and everyone was gone, maybe nothing worse happened due to a party occurring upstairs.

Bottom line is she does not know how to stand up for her self in this situation. I truly want her to learn how to handle these things the best way she can, but maybe I think it's in her best interest if this is dealt with right away, even though I would not being giving her time to take initiative. Clinical depression runs in her family and she is diagnosed with it. She had an extremely abusive child hood due to bullying -she told me this and her parents told me about this in much more detail last night- Thus she was diagnosed with post dramatic stress disorder, and was unable to take public schooling for a long time. From what I understand she was raped by her first boyfriend when she was 13 as well. Her mother didn't believe her, which she claimed made her afraid of telling her parents in fear they would not believe her. I'm the only one she's told all these things too, and I am very glad she did, bad things could happen soon if this is not dealt with right away...

I want her to learn to be strong and know what to do in these situations... but honestly she's to afraid to deal with this situation on her own, let along talk to her parents. So tomorrow I'm telling her parents about this as soon as possible, which is funny since I did the same thing last night. A little funnier maybe since this is the first lie I knew I could justify. She told me looking into my eye's very deeply not to tell ANYONE, and I said I wouldn't of course. Bullshit though! It's to risky to take the time it would to convince her to deal with this with her involvement. I feel something very bad could happen to her sooner then later

She really, really enjoys this job though... I hope in every sense this works out. Maybe I could be all super epic like and after this guy is all fired by my pew pew lazers eveywhere I'm revered as a hero and finally instead of shredding my resume and cover letter every week by Kendra her self it seems since administration thinks it as recyclable paper and Kendra does the shredding of paper... I'm hired and get to work with Kendra... Maybe I'm stupid but it's kind of why I've wanted to work there this whole time. Other then the fact that it's very quite there at night so I would be basically be getting paid $12/h while drawing most the time... Dream collage job much? Honestly... I may be naive idk! But if I could work at Tuscany club like with Kendra for 4 years, while going to ACAD... what more education would I need? Dang I basically get to draw for 4-5 hours a night while being paid =S Talk about epic fantasy!

<3 <3 <3 <3 <3

Ehh... just felt like I wanted to make a little bit of fun out of this whole bad situation =S

I have a job interview with VHQ on Monday so I have a job either way it looks like *shrug*

Been drawing roughly 3-5 hours a day resently, I'm getting alot better at just getting down and working. Still have some work to do on that though.

There life studies of a still life skull I perchased, some copies of Andrew Loomis figure drawing book, and some drawings of Master Cheif and a Spartan from some references.

For most part the Spartan II's were copied by eye, just made a few adjustments in places I felt could be better in the reference. Sadly I didnt take either of these all the way haha! I plan to do a realyl finished drawing of master cheif on some good paper this weekend.

I'm not sure what to say.

She is fortunate to have a friend like you to talk you. I can at least understand and it seems it would be really difficult to trust anyone in a situation such as this. If you are having trouble trusting the people closest to you, then in a way, you'll have trouble trusting yourself.

And that seems like the perfect job for me. It feels the best to work on a quiet night.

Menasha ... what happened ?

If I was in your situation I'd rather have my friend mad at me and safe than not say anything and risk her getting hurt further.

Anyway ... you're a good friend for worrying about her so much and trying to help her out.

I hope things work out for the best.

Laz

Junpei got ahold of me on MSN and so here I am as odd as that sounds o.o

I shouldnt of posted this since I had mostly lost the motivation to post on this site. Maybe you will see me pokeing around when somethign new is anounced by the man but ntil then not sure *shrug*

Anyways ill write a small follow up. I think the night I posted this I had a long talk with my grandfather on the subject. He was alot of help, he's extremly  smart and experienced =)

Anyways, to sum it all up things turned out fine. It looks like ill have the job in December as well o.o
