I love art. Really. Always have, it's what calms me down.
Recently, I've been trying my hand at scratchboard, an unusual medium which requires you to switch your brain around, and scratch away the areas of light, rather than layering on the areas of dark. The scratchboard is a sheet of metal (alluminum or brass) coated in india ink (an unpleasant black substance that likes to coat your skin).
Anyways, I submitted this piece of myself playboating to my art teacher, who submitted it to an exhibit, who submitted it to it's judges, who decided it was good enough to give it an award of excellence...so the whole submissive process ended up making me feel pretty good.
