Lantern's Light by GreyJedi
Lantern's Light
In Brightest Day, in Blackest Night
(something something) Green Lantern.

That's how the oath goes, right?

I took up knitting last February while and then, quite a few months ago, I got it into my head that DC's lantern symbols could make a super nifty blanket if they were all put together. I whipped up the pattern designs and then left them alone for a while. Actually knitting this took me from late January to early March.


GreyJedi's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
I am a human, a being composed of a lot of different kinds of cells which function as a whole. I have this annoying tendency of constantly respiring, and usually need to consume something of nutritional value multiple times a day. Once night falls, I frequently fall unconscious for long periods of time - which may or may not include somewhat hallucinatory brain activity.

Bio(logy) complete.

In case you can't tell, I'm a bit of a smart-ass on occasion. This is one of those occasions.
I feel like you all deserve a bit of an explanation as to what has happened with regards to why I seem to no longer submit drawings.

Here's the thing: I can't.

Submitting drawings and art is predicated on my actively creating it for submission. I'm not. I honestly have not completed a picture since May 2011. It's not that I don't want to draw, it's that I haven't had it in me to do so. It's like I've forgotten how.

It feels like the painting for ILackCreativity and his wife was a fluke.

I think this dry spell of art began in 2009, if anyone recalls that day that I submitted the entirety of my Miadhachain Legacy art from the DecemberTwentySixth account. That seems to be the beginning of this. Because that is around the time that my life went wonky and it hasn't seen fit to straighten out yet. Loads of stuff happened around then and life seems to have been one disrupting thing after another.

All in all, life has not been particularly conducive to finding the time/inspiration to draw. And then whenever I DO draw, the picture in progress always seems SO WRONG that I want to cry and wind up pretending I never made the attempt.

In short, it's not that I don't WANT to draw. It's that I've lost my nerve to. Something about it has me inherently scared and I haven't had the time to crack open what this block is so I can destroy it.

And that is why there have been no drawings in a painfully long time. Because apparently I have some sort of issues that I never used to.

...I miss drawing... I miss knowing that I was good at it...

ANYWAY. Maybe now that I'm heading into 3rd year university will let me do figure out how to get over this. We shall see. In the meantime, all you're probably going to see are snatches of writing and photographs.

Thank you for the fav! Your crafting (especially the clay snake and the green lantern blanket) are really cool.

Hi GreyJedi!
Happy Birthday :tighthug: Hope you've been having a great day :dance:
GreyJedi Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
:aww: Thanks, Corad!

It was definitely a good day. Probably not what most people would consider a "good" birthday, but I sure enjoyed myself! It's probably a little weird that I was thrilled that my birthday gave me a chance to finally clean my room. :XD:

Because I got distracted whilst re-investigating the link on this page to the KFC scented candles.

What have you done? :stare: 
GreyJedi Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
How is that my fault? I mean really. HOW?

Those are hilarious though. The strange things that kids don't realize they've inadvertently done... :lol:

Happy Birthday, GreyJedi! I hope you have a brilliant day, proceeded by Chinese for dinner. :party:
GreyJedi Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks, Bijoux! :D

And just for you, Bijoux, I made sure that we got Chinese food for dinner. I mean, I also wanted it, but y'know, I thought you'd like to know...

I sure hope Praxis doesn't visit this house.
GreyJedi Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
How did that ever pass home inspection?

And I can only imagine the utter destruction that would result if circumstances allowed for Praxis to find such that house...
