I don't really like blogs. There's something kind of dull and narcissistic about the whole thing to me. A journal I can understand. It's something you keep away from this dreadful and all consuming internet culture, privy to only a few lucky losers. And journals have pages. Pretty, papery, crisp little pages (I go a little crazy over paper...) that you can crinkle and tear and spill things on, etc.
Still, if I'm serious about this whole illustration deal (and about getting a good grade for this class), blogging is "essential". I'll probably warm up to it as soon as I get going... and I will also try to be less, um, negative in my posts.
In the meantime, I need a better title. Hah! Another reason why physical journals are better: they require no craptastic titles.
