New Year, New Journal Entry
uh hey!! so I guess it's time for the usual new year's update??
um... was super busy this year, especially on the tail end of it all... Between a spring/summer graphics gig at my school and building my portfolio to submit for my major, it was pretty hectic (but productive)!!  I got into the program, so now I'm officially a Drawing and Painting major!! cool stuff
Umm what else.... been kinda sick the past few days, though I'm doin better!  May as well get the gunk over with at the beginning of the year before I go back, heh.  
This year I want to kick it into high gear!!  I'm still gonna have to be balancing work (once I get a job lol) and school, but I want to make bigger and better stuff!  More illustrative work and more personal traditional art, but also I wanna really start hashing out one or two of my story ideas!  Despite not being a fan of doing full blown narrative stuff I have a couple concepts I'd love to see as a comic... still on the fence about

The year ahead
Happy New Year! I hope everybody was adequately prepared for the onslaught of Back to the Future and Neon Genesis Evangelion quips!
Just as I did last year, I thought I'd briefly share my art plans for the year ahead. And well, it's pretty much the same as last year actually. I'll be focusing on two projects, the same two.
I'll be continuing my contribution to Scoundrels. Due to a schedule change, my second issue is currently running right now. There's a new page from me added every Monday and Friday until late January.
The other is my personal comic project that I mentioned last January, which I think was the last time that I spoke about it! Mind you, it was an entirely different comic back then! I ended up shelving the original idea early on in the year. I really loved the concept and the preliminary work I had done, but it became apparent that things just weren't going to be practical. Maybe I'll return

old year/new year
This year has been a pretty big one for me. I was living with Kellys parents, working a shitty retail job where I wanted to die, and then I drove across the freakin’ continent with my girlfriend, 3 rats, and landed a not-shitty art job that I enjoy going to. That’s so filled with opposites from where I was it’s ridiculous! How does that even happen?!
Things have been so great, but it’s still been a pretty difficult year. We lost my best rat-ular friend Lily in early October. We lost Kellys best rat-ular friend Emmy earlier in February. We also danced the poverty line for a few weeks when we first moved out to California, and I’ve put all of my personal projects on hold as I strive to get as far off that line as possible.
But we’ve also been to DisneyWorld and DisneyLand in the same year. The point is that nothing is ever easy. You need to keep moving forward, past everything awful, or you’ll be stuck in the same old shit for a long time with no

deviantart for grownups???
haha I'm referring to behance
no idea how popular it is around these parts but here's mine!
it's not my favorite site in the world (it's got a very professional vibe, which strikes me as good for designers mostly, but it's definitely lacking a little personality...) but it's a good placeholder until I get around to making my own website.
anyway, that's nowhere near everything I've been up to in the past two years, but it's the best selection and an accurate reflection of what my art is moving towards, I think.
I guess this is my official farewell from deviantart. I've been checking my messages quasi-regularly, but I think it's time I turn off my google chrome app. it seems like most people have up and left (and who can blame them?). I have no desire to delete this account or anything; I think it's important to remember where I started. I've totally come across some of my teachers' old deviantart accounts and I think that's hilarious. everyone

It's been a long time since I've written a journal. But I thought it would be worth it to share some really big news!

My team and I have started a Patreon for StarHammer!

What's StarHammer you ask?

Let me explain!

TL;DW: StarHammer is an all-ages comic by Vondell Swain, Clay Lindvall and myself that blends superheroes, science-fiction, and alternate history to create new characters and stories for today's audiences. 

The comic will be launching on Hiveworks this fall! But backers will have early access to pages!

You can follow us on twitter and tumblr too and find out more!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this!

We hope you can join us for the ride

There's not much to say about me. I was born and raised in the city of Toledo, Ohio. I've lived in a lighthouse, Yellowstone National Park, which I'm still not sure if I'm allowed to go back to or not, and the Grand Tetons. But I've lived here for the most part.

I have a very odd and corny sense of humor. So I hope you enjoy that sorta thing.

Right now I'm working on a comic that can best be described as the result of a mind that's absorbed way too much pop culture over the past two decades. I hope you enjoy it and seeing the process as I try to get to the finished product.

I'm also trying to put the wheels on an all-ages superhero comic called StarHammer. So if you love the kind of stories that don't talk down to kids while also being a lot of fun, you might be into that. But you don't have to be. I'm not your dad. Not after the divorce.

But that's me in a massive nutshell.

Current Residence: Sarasota, Florida
Favourite genre of music: All. Don't hate any genre just have some with music that hasn't interested me yet.
Operating System: Chrome OS
Favourite cartoon character: Daffy Duck
Personal Quote: I can assure you this isn't what it looks like. Or maybe it is.
