I saw I hadn't updated my journal in over a year so here's a quick one. I've updated my fic "Casting, Go to Two" and I'm working on subsequent chapters right now. I've also finally named the AU that this story (and all my stories) will take place in. I'm calling it "Hollywood Mobians." For now it's composed of only CGT2, but I have another story that I'll be sharing soon that eventually crosses over with CGT2. If you want a peak at it you can go to my Toyhouse link below and read early. The only detail I'll share now is that my OC Grace McCray is the main character of the story. I've already got 4 chapters in the can but I'll be dropping them bi-weekly for now as I continue to write more. I'll be posting my new commission prices soon too. They've gone up, but I think it's fair to the client as well as my time and effort. I'm streaming a bit more these days. You can find me at Feel free to follow me. My schedule for the moment is pretty much when I have time

For about a month now, I've been kicking around the idea of writing a fanfic where I go completely off the reservation and give a story to my version of Sally. This will serve as a sort of loose canon for which my version of her exists. The basic idea is that this is an alternate universe in which Sally is an actress who got her start on The Adventures of Sonic TV series. (This will essentially be an amalgamation of what I personally liked and pull from in the Archie comics and the SatAM show.) The whole thing is purely for my own self indulgence and fun, so don't expect an "in canon" Sonic read. That said, I'm a writer and I put a good bit of effort into this story. It pulls from many elements in my life and the main character is very reflective of my self. (Cause he's my sona.) So if you're into it, give it a read! I'll be doing more artwork in the future relating to the story as it comes together. There's a link to the first chapter below! Enjoy! -Matt

I've decided I need to unplug from a number of things for a bit and this site is one of them. Outside of dealing with some toxicity, I'm stretched a little too thin in other aspects of my life right now. I still owe a number of trades, I'm behind on commissions, and my day job has been increasing in demand while also draining me. I'm not deleting this page (not yet anyway.) I just don't have the energy to make posts on multiple sites right now. If I owe you any artwork, I'll contact you and figure that out. Thank you. -Matt

Hello, do you take requests?

Sorry, paid work only.

you are awesome.

Thanks for the watch :)
Thank you for the beautiful art! I love how you draw Sally! Are commissions open by chance? 
They are closed/paused, my commission queue is full right now.
Please have patience and stay tuned for when I free up some slots :)
