My first graduate year is over and now it's on to summer.
There are still a couple of requests I want to complete before I move on with what I want to draw.
- 6 characters, 2 of which have been done, for a friend who wants me to do a potential webcomic.
- A surprise picture that includes all four physics OC's. I don't want to spoil it yet, because I think the request was hilarious!
- I do have a few sketches here and there strewn about my notebooks that I might make a sketch dump.
However, my summer is not all clean cut to allow me for an efficient drawing season for said summer. I am doing summer research which is taking up the bulk of my time from 9 to 3. In addition a chunk of that time will be used to study for the qualification exams. And this time will be even greater when I get to the weekend. That's the work plan for the summer and I intend to take it very seriously.
My free time that I have left will be spent reading Harry Potter, gaming, and drawing when I can.
The research, if you're curious, is about particle phenomenon with a proton-proton collision. And the majority of my research is going into the simulations surrounding it. I've learned how to work the basics of the command line on Terminal, and now I'm going into how to operate and handle the simulation software. I will be going outside of Ames for a short while in early July to go and build part of the new detector for this nuclear physics group. It's going to be great!
This is going to be a building and exhausting summer, but it will be worth it.
Stay safe and have a good summer!
