T.V Shows

Alright, everyone knows that television is literally trash these days. Most shows are lazy reality shows or constant copies of things that were done often in the past. And it doesn’t help that my tastes aren’t really commonly broadcasted or even considered. (But I guess my opinion doesn’t really matter when I watch t.v. like 4 hours per month.)

When it comes to the shows I enjoy I have very specific standards. First off I’m a child at heart so the shows that I would prefer to watch would be animated. It doesn’t have to be cartoony or anime, just anything that’s art and it is animated. It must have a continuous plot or at least tell a decent story per episode, some kind of continuity. And the characters must be likable. I cannot watch a show with terrible, boring or annoying characters. The only show I’ve seen do all these is:

   Steven Universe

la-et-st-steven-universe-20131104-001Steven Universe is a cartoon show that airs on Cartoon Network which was created by Rebecca Sugar and I have to say, it’s pretty amazing. The characters are great and very three-dimensional, especially for a cartoon. The setting that Rebecca Sugar was able to create is very believable and interesting. Everything and everyone has a complex backstory that’s gradually explored throughout the series. I recommend this show to anyone who watches cartoons and is interested in a great story-line.

 

There have been too many times I have seen crappy and unoriginal shows that run regularly almost every day. Nickelodeon runs practically Spongebob and only Spongebob all day. Cartoon Network has probably only three good animated shows left on it. And I don’t even want to venture into teen sitcom hell which is Disney Channel. (Although I appreciate Gravity Falls and Star vs. The Forces of Evil that still runs on Disney Channel.) Okay.. I believe I’m done ranting about children shows for now.

Intro

Hello! My name is Ackella Mattis and a student at Cardinal Spellman High School. I must say it feels rather odd writing this blog entry. I’ve never taken part in any social media throughout my entire life. I have never used Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, etc. you get the point. I’m not a very social person either so this feels really weird.

Although there is something that doesn’t feel weird to me and that’s drawing.

 

Landscape

Here’s some summer beach art for you guys who are stuck in the winter cold. Personally I don’t mind the cold but I’ve seen some people go crazy hating winter.

 

To make this whole blog project feel more natural for me (and a little less painful for the readers), I’ll try to incorporate my art and my ideas into this.

Hopefully I can turn this project into a worthwhile experience.

But that’s enough rambling about my art (for now), it’s time to ramble more about myself. I guess besides the non-talkative part of me I’d say I’m a hard-working student, I make sure I always keep my grades straight A’s. I hope I don’t sound like I’m bragging..

Jeez.. this entry is a bit of a mess isn’t it? Hopefully the next one isn’t so abstract and all over the place. So uh.. here’s a self-portrait that I drew a while ago, a picture tells a thousand words right? I’m just going to slink back into the shadows.. Until next time guys, Good bye!
