It has been way too long since I did a computer backup. I started burning important files to DVD last night. What prompted me to do this was a notice of low hard drive space. It turns out I had about 30MB left! Wow, haven't been that low in a long time. It's because of all these video projects; they eat up hard drive space like crazy. I'm hoping to finish off some of those video projects and make DVDs out of them so I can clean up my hard drive. If I get it clean enough, I might even format the hard drive. I used to do that occasionally and really like the feel of a clean computer. I haven't been able to do so in a long time because of all the huge files not backed up. I guess I should break down and get a backup external USB hard drive at some point.
While I was waiting for DVDs to burn, I decided to draw whatever the pencil led me to, on a customary 3" x 5" card. As usual, I came up with strange characters. I have a hard time making myself draw props and environments. I usually start off with random shapes or scribbles. My mind invariably pulls faces out of these abstractions, so that's what I end up with. Next time I'll try to draw something besides only characters. It'll be a stretch. My old drawings, while absolutely horrible, at least have more variety. I call this latest creation The Grey Ellipse.
