Uh...something's up with the Journal widget here. Apologies for the repeat journal entry. I tried to edit my old one and it disappeared entirely.
I've recently left my job in the game industry so that I could focus more of my time and attention on Lackadaisy. Patreon is my weapon of choice in trying to see this to fruition.
If more Lackadaisy comic updates, illustrations, tutorials, mini-comics, books and other things interests you, please do check it out!
Notes on Character Design
I received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog. In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to
We are a group of artists that have noticed there's widespread confusion and misconceptions spreading about the limits and ethics of referencing, so we have decided to help the community by clearing up the idea of what referencing is! -- You can also watch a video about it, just click here!
What is referencing?
When we talk about “referencing,” we could also talk about “searching for information.” Imagine that you have to do an essay for school about plants, animals, planets, in other words, a subject you don’t know much about. What’s the first thing you do before you start writing? Search for information

Whatever. I'm gonna try to push my ass back to it. Back to the drawing, coloring, and posting stuff within the few *and hopefully, not as busy* weeks of break that I have.

Britt is my nickname. Demesne means domain. I see my art page as my domain. Since I was an avid Heretic / Hexen player, I liked the names of the various stages and locations. It also helped that I communicated with three people from Ravensoft via email and they answered my questions, one of them was where they found the names that they gave to the stages they created for their games. "From reading lots of books from different genres, especially fiction and horror. Various books written by Stephen King also help."

"Without even going out of the door, one can know the whole world."
"For fast-acting relief, try slowing down."
"Softening your attitude opens your heart."
"If the only prayer you ever say in your life is, 'Thank you', that would be enough."
"To look backward for a while is to refresh the eye, to restore it, and to render in the more fit for it's prime function of looking forward."
