Here is a place where pillowings and lintlings come to rest, recover, and eventually go out and find new homes for themselves. For whatever reasons their old homes didn't quite work out, but that doesn't mean they're giving up. They're eager to meet you and can't wait to explore your home!
If you would like to purchase one of the adopts here with your cc, please comment below.
A mod will then comment back to confirm and collect the pillowing or lintlings things (extra art if it has any) for you and send you both on your way by note.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT TOOLS DO YOU USE TO WORK?
Canson Montval or Bristol paper 300gsm, 0.3 mechanical pencil + graffiti 0.3 mm B, pencils 2B and 6B, and kneaded rubber.
Disposable ink pens 0.05, 0.1 and 0.8. French curve set, 40cm ruler. Light table. Crow quill nibs. Acrylic black ink.
The brushes I use to ink, the one format I do like is a round liner (Fine Liner Sable 2/0 302). There are many formats but particularly I like that one because it is perfect for contouring, outlining and for doing fine details, it keeps the trace steady and straight, and many people like to use it for signatures.
But I think the tools should be tested and chosen individually by each person. If you don't work well with nibs then try pens. If you don't like mechanical pencils then use regular pencils. Don't try to get the same tools that your favorite artist uses, thinking you're going to be able to make it just like them because those tools work for them. It's t

I haven't done a journal in ages and I just updated the look of my profile page and it called for a new one of ....these. So! Let me update you.
I have been very busy, and artwork is coming along slowly, as everyone who actively watches me knows. Sorry about that! I promise I'll be better. <3
I also want to give a special thank you to everyone that showed support of me with the recent hullabaloo... I was really overwhelmed and touched. So thank you so much~! It really helped me get through it. c:
Also for anyone that has not noticed some time in the undecided future, I will be starting my own online manga! I'll be posting the pages here in my gallery. It'll be called Lemuria. I have set up a special sub-gallery just for it now, though it only boasts two im
A quick update on my absenceHello DAers!
My long absence due to multiple projects (and teaching, and graduate school) is probably a month away from coming to an end. I apologies for those who sent me IMs and didn't hear back, sometimes for months. If there is a rush it's almost always better to contact me through my website contact form, as I'll see that right away.
Also, I should have lots of fun skeletals to show off in the coming months (and years) thanks in part to the work I put in over the last 9 months. I look forward to chatting with you all again in a few weeks!
Features of October 2018And here we have October's edition of the feature journals! Come look through some spoopy entries and give them some love
