This was originally an image of my fursona, Fletcher, and my best friend's fursona, Brueghel, hugging. Now it's mostly just me. The story behind this is a long one, spanning the course of several years. To put it as briefly as possible while still sort of doing it justice, the closest and best friend I've ever had in my entire life suddenly abandoned me with very little explanation, and refuses to speak to me beyond the very occasional "hello". It may seem stupid that I'm getting this upset about it, but we were always EXTREMELY close, and now it would be more than a bit of a stretch to call us friends... So, it's a bit hard to adjust to, to say the least... I'm sure I'll eventually get over this one way or another, but at the moment, I'm in a lot of pain.
Just a heads up, the LAST thing I need right now is people telling me that I'm somehow pathetic or worthless because other people have it worse. Just because others are hurting more, it doesn't mean I'm not in pain.
I realized there's barely any good stand-alone artwork about Sally in my gallery. Nor enough Pin-Ups. So I decided to rip off one of Senanca's calendar images. Problem solved.
Also found out that Sally's most perfect song ever is "Count me out" by Sheena Easton. It describes her attitude really good.
Thinking about using volunteering male characters from my webcomic for Pin-Up art too. Except it's hard to draw them that way without them losing their heterosexuality. Marvin is secretly bi, though. And a medium-muscle mechanic with much chest hair. Well, that settles it, I'm off to kidnap him now! Putting a porn magazine in a giant mouse cage trap, and when it snaps, I'll have the camera ready and explain to Marvin the only way out of this.
Being an author of a villain story really leaves traces on you.
ZodiaCon 2012 is just around the corner. If you want to come you'd better make up your mind fast, the reg deadline is nearing.
Just like last year, I was tasked with doing some promo art. Again, a life-size (0,5x2m) banner featuring this year's mascot, Vartan.
Will be available on-site as bookmarks, the banner will get sold for charity.
Edit: Vartan's been taken hostage as the Second-in-Command and field commander of Semper Fi. Note: Vartan's design changed a bit when he migrated to SF - he lost the tiger, he lost the huge belt, the crown and his horns went quite a lot less afro. Keeping old file here, for continuity's sake.
