It's mostly giant monsters in traditional media, but I do try to mix things up with various vehicle concepts, and I will try to add more black smithing stuff soon.

Livin' Large is my own crazy "kaijuverse" where giant monsters and humans fight for survival in a dog eat dog world.

Good art gets my attention, but a great attitude holds it...
Talent is abundant in one form or another here. It's how the person manages it that truly makes them stand out.
So I got a new car Tuesday, and so far it feels great!

Just in case any of you didn't see my last journal, about a month ago I made a rookie mistake and got in a car accident.  Thankfully there was only damage to my car and my pride. My 2003 Civc Hybrid (that I called Golfball from the hail damage) was on its last leg, so it wouldn't have made sense to repair...

I wanted to wait till the summer to start shopping, but my parents insisted I get a car sooner. So my dad and I went to a car show to see what's available, do some research, and do some test drives over my spring break.

It was a hard choice, but I decided on a....  Subaru Impreza 5 door

And so far I love it!  It feels very solid with handling and acceleration, even with the all wheel drive the gas mileage is just 1-2 mpg less than the other fwd only cars I was looking at, and it comes with some pretty neat safety features like the ability to stop itself in certain conditions to prevent a collision if it senses the driver hasn't applied the brakes.

Of course I need to teach myself what the fancy safety features can and can't do and definitely not get over dependent on them.

I'd like to eventually add some lightweight aftermarket wheels in black as well as plastidip the chrome trim black to so the outside secondary color contrasts with the white body and compliments the mostly black interior.

Journal History

Jake Pace
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United States
Purpose of DA account- stress relief, improve skills, meet new people, make friends, learn new ideas, share ideas, apply new ideas to my future career (whatever it may be), and have fun!

I will admit, I'm here on DA mainly for self improvement. I am not that interested in selling or buying art stuff any time soon. I just found drawing to be a good constructive outlet from the hardships of life stuff. I ended up sticking with DA because many of the people here seem pretty nice.

Place of residence: Knoxville, Tennessee
College: University of Tennessee
Major: Environmental Studies. Originally Mechanical Engineering.
Possible career: Still very open to change!! Was looking in the automotive, aviation, energy, or robotic industries. But I really don't know. Just something hands on I guess.

Taken 2007 Zamboanga, Philippines
Visiting family
That is me in the picture, but I didn't catch that. One of the locals with us did while we were out scuba diving. We ate very well that day.
