I'm Alive!

Oh Blogger, I have been lazy haven't I?

I'm sorry, but I am happy to report that my Buddhist project is well on its way! I've found a temple very near to where I live, a place called the Quan Am monastery. I think that will be my main place of research. I found plenty of other places to visit, but its rather hard to find some of them. One of the temples is located in a rather shadey part of town, and although I had to trouble finding it, I don't feel comfortable going there alone. But that what boyfriends are for!

This Sunday I plan on going to Quan Am for their 10am Buddhist service, then I shall hand around and see if I can get anyone to talk to be and to do some more drawing. I have found that its been kinda hard to get people to talk to me, since I don't think many of the people at Quan Am speak English. But we'll see how it goes.

Now, as promised, I shall post some stuff from my Hindu project from last semester. I'll start with some sketchbook work, and then some of the paper I was making and them a few pieces of my paper.

So there we Go. Either later tonight, or perhaps tomorrow I will upload some stiff I have been working on so far and tell the world how my first Critique went. Until The, Blessings from the Kitty Goddess!

An interesting setting for Buddha.

So this semester, my very last semester that is, i'm gonna focus on doing some major illustrated journalism with the Buddhist temples around Memphis, TN. I'm very excited! Some of the stuff that will be poster here over the next few months will be centered around this adventure. Though i do hope to contunue using this here blog to promote myself after I Graduate.

So ......I started out by browsing some Buddhist are real quick on google pictures and found quite few nice peices. Here are some of my favorets.
Okay, well i should probably sleep. Perhaps tomarrow I will go ahead and post some of my Hindu Art.
