Game of Thrones

Journal Entry: Sun Apr 27, 2014, 8:09 PM
So, I just finished reading the first book of the song of fire and ice saga, and wow... that book is brutal. I would highly recommend it, but I have to say that even though I'd been warned, I was still taken aback by the lengths that some characters were willing to go to. The magnitude of the deception, avarice and in some cases outright cruelty is shocking. Great honor and courage are also displayed, but just like in the real world, those attributes are not necessarily rewarded, even if they are respected.

Yes, it's just fiction, but great truths can be told through fiction, and I felt that the book accurately represented some of the spectrum of human loyalties, aspirations and fears. The book is exceptionally well written, but not a children's book by any stretch of the imagination.

In any case, clearly I liked it a lot, or I wouldn't be writing a journal about it.
I look forward to reading the next one, even though I expect the experience to be slightly painful, just as this one was. There are a million stories out there with petty conflicts, and meaningless victories and endings where everyone lives happily ever after. I prefer stories that hold more truth in them than that.

As a 23-year old Ph.D. student, there are many things in this world that I have yet to learn. I tend to take tasks very seriously, and the creation of art is important to me.

I began making fractal art back in 2006, shortly after I joined DA. Since that time, I have competed in a number of fractal contests and won several. My techniques vary significantly from some that you see among other fractal artists. I have remained on the outskirts of the community, which has in some ways stunted my growth as an artist, but simultaneously challenged me to develop my own techniques and gain a better understanding of the underlying mathematical principals that govern fractals. However, I have learned that it doesn't matter how much time you spend on techniques if you don't put your soul into the art you're making. It doesn't matter what median it is, without passion all you get is a hollow image, devoid of feeling.

While most of my art consists of fractals, I love to write, and I value my prose and poetry just as highly as my best fractals.

I am always eager to help people out, so if you have any questions about how I make my art, or if you would like me to make something for you, feel free to ask. B-)

Art

Art is the ultimate expression of the mind and soul. Within all of us lies the omnipresent potential to find peace, agony, joy and ire in all walks of life. How we choose to percieve situations is what defines us as individuals, and how we react is the ultimate test of our character.

The community on DeviantArt is truly incredible because of the amazing people who devote vast amounts of time energy to make it so. Always remember to be respectful towards others and their art, for a stray callous word against something of extreme individual importance can cause far more torment than intended.
