The Death of my hard drive

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 23, 2014, 4:55 PM
So last week I had the unfortunate event of losing my external drive. This drive held all my old artwork since 2004, along with a years worth of work I do in Second Life. This all had to happen with less than 2 weeks before the Fantasy Faire.

Thankfully I did have a good portion of my work uploaded into Second Life already. But, the sting of that amount of work hits hard. :/ Especially the loss of many things that were nostalgic to me.

A lot of my current uploads were also lost in the crash. Which also saddens me. :( But at the same time I'm taking a step back and looking at it as a moment to take a fresh new start and see where things go from there.

My Fiance tried everything to recover the drive, with a recovery program. But by the next morning the drive was making sounds that were not normal. We could take it to a hard drive recovery place, but looking at the costs it could cost upwards of up to 1500 dollars, and we just don't have that type of money. Especially with our wedding coming up.

So I just have to sweep this disaster under the rug and keep going.

I've been using Poser since 2004, wow 10 years now that I look at it. It's usually a program frowned upon by a majority of artists. I can understand why, but to me it's a medium. There are a lot of amazing talented artists who use the program, and I hope some day I can achieve a small fraction of their talent.

I do traditional art in the private, but it's general just sketches in a sketch book.

I don't get to produce as much art as I used to as a lot of my time is taken up as a developer in Second Life. But I try to produce as much as I can when I have the want. :)

I was wondering! Does this person look familiar to you?{[link]} His name is Andrew De Leon, and he happens to be America's favorite countertenor! But who else would look like Marilyn Manson and sound like Jackie Evancho at the same time!? No one but him! I just find his voice more than beautiful! You have got to check out his album as soon as it comes out! It's called Black Lights! I can sense the day is getting closer by the moment!
