Menifee Sunrise
Here's a nice photo I took one morning here this past September as I stepped out the front door one weekend. What a sight to greet the morning with huh? :D I just had to photograph this sky view and share it. Enjoy!!! :D

Caprica Mk 1 Colonial Fighter by dinobatfan
Caprica Mk 1 Colonial Fighter
Here's a photo of one of my newest commissioned projects. This is an all resin kit of a non-screen Pre-Battlestar Galactica series Mk 1 Caprica Colonial Fighter. The kit is a very well cast kit from Spacecraft Creation Models and is a very fun, pretty easy kit to build. There is some seam cleanup that needs done, and some flash around the canopy and landing gear that needs to be carefully removed, but nothing difficult, or painful to handle. The kit has taken me some time to build, but only due to life interuptions and nothing due to the kit itself. Enjoy the progress! :D

 Hello to everyone out there in the grand DA community! It's been quite awhile since I submitted any art or journal entries and it's time to get back on track here and up to date. I've had a very good Thanksgiving Day here with my family and do hope everyone here had a great Thanksgiving too. I haven't submitted any art or photos lately due I've been working on building some commissioned models, a little bit of my own modelwork, taking care of my family, and most especially I've been back working again full time.

 For those who've been following my work and journals here know that I've been looking for full time employment for the past several years and most especially over the last year or so since I graduated from college with my Bachelors Degree in Business Management. To say the job market has been nuts lately is an understatement. After 20+ years of honorable work in the military, plus a Bachelor's Degree and tons of varied, great experience you'd have thought I'd find employment pretty quickly and easily. Such has been far from the case.

 Anyway, I finally secured fulltime employment at last this past September. I am currently working as a commercial lawn irrigation systems specialist for the Riverside National Cemetery. Suffice to say, working at a cemetery is not where I figured I find work at. It wasn't even in my range of consideration, to be honest. But, it is good to work there, and unlike the Halloween or Hollywood portrayals, it feels much more like working in a park or woodlands area, rather than a cemetery. Of course, it is impossible to ever forget that I'm working in a cemetery, but due to the lack of upright markers (they're horizontal plates laid in the ground) it just doesn't FEEL like one is working in a cemetery. 

 They pay may not be as much as I would prefer, but is at least steady work, I am getting full benefits, and the location is close to home, with great hours. I don't know if this is a forever job for me, but it IS a good for right now job, and at least I am brining in a regular paycheck again.

 The job career field sure IS a crazy thing to be sure!

Anyhow, I'm still here and still looking to contribute here. I was hoping to get some photos of my latest work up tonight, but the day has slipped away from me, and I have to call it a night to get some sleep and go to work tomorrow. I'll be sure to post a few things tomorrow night.

I see I've passed 10,000 pageviews now. That's amazing!!!! :D Thank you so much to everyone who has looked at and shown an interest in my work! I know I've taken a substantial leave of absence lately, but I do have much in the works yet, and tons to create and build, so please do keep checking back from time to time, I do have much to share yet.

Take care everyone, and to all, as always...Happy Creating!!!! :D

Hi everyone! 
 
 I hope everyone is enjoying my latest photos of the doll house project I been working on the last few months. This is a piece I've been working on in addition to my ongoing search for my next place of full time employment, my goings on as a dad and husband, my Air National Guard training studies, and a couple of other commissioned model pieces I'm working on.

 I'm a little pooped folks. ;)  It's great to be doing all this varied stuff, and to be ABLE to do all this stuff, but it does put some wear and tear on the body. :) Over all I do feel good though, and it is always a source of pride, happiness, and relief to complete a model or other project.

 I'm sorry, I haven't been around the DA community much lately, but hopefully, from this journal, and the latest pics, all of you can understand a bit better why I haven't been around here much.

As much as I love DA and all the people here, I had to take time and actually build.

After the next couple of commissioned works I have in the pipeline for completion, hopefully I'll able to work a bit more on some of my own projects that are in various stages of completion.
 
My main priority though is securing my next place of full time employment, whatever that may be. It's a weird market out there right now, and my efforts to gain employment are taking far longer than I could have ever anticipated. Just a lot of competition, and somehow, I just haven't been able to market myself completely right yet. I'm putting in a lot of time and effort on those fronts too. Luckily, I have had a number of interviews, but now I just need some job offers. I'm working on it and won't give up of course.
It just gets tiring, frustrating, and discouraging is all. However, the jobs ARE out there, and I do have a lot of people working to guide me, advise me, and give me leads to pursue.

It'll all come together, but it's just taking longer than I'd like.

Please due stay tuned in folks, I have a lot more to come yet, project, art, and model wise.

Take care and happy creating to all!!!

Dave :D
