I know many of you have been wondering where, not just Daisy and F15, but ALL of my art has gone. I assure you I'm still making art, it's just that I'm not allowed to post the art I make online.

I work as a graphic designer for Centinela Feed and Pet Supplies www.centinelafeed.com/, a small chain of pet stores throughout the Los Angeles and south bay area. I make the signage and ads for the stores, as well as writing articles and copy. It's full time work, and what's more, the office where I work is a forty minute drive from my apartment, WITHOUT traffic. That's where the bulk of my time and energy, artistic or otherwise, goes.

Those of you who live in the area can go check out the stores. They're chock full of my art, and the art of the lovely lady who gave me my job.

I'll have some finished pieces to post soon. And do not fear, Daisy will return.

Daisy returns!

Mostly because my last journal entry was old and bitchy.

I want to try to do more sketching and upload everything I sketch. I've been liking the look of my rough stuff more than my finished stuff lately.

Also, it might be time for me to update Photoshop and Illustrator. I use Illustrator at work, and I've gotten pretty decent at it, but I can't use it at home because the version on my computer is ancient.

But we're also trying to move into a new place. Enhh...expenseeeeees.

Tell me what to sketch! I may or may not do it, but you guys are a fountain of inspiration! :3

Because this is the week of my stuff getting broken into, someone hacked my hotmail account and sent out a bunch of spam messages. I apologise to anyone who got spammed. I have since changed my password and deleted my contact list.

I've been trying to discontinue my hotmail address, since hotmail has become glitchy and unfriendly over the past couple years. I hung onto it because it's my longest-running e-mail address, so there's a lot tied to it. But I'm slowly breaking or moving those ties. The paypal link on Daisy now goes to my ranchocurioso address, so it still works (thanks to everyone who's been sending donations! You guys are sweet!)

So don't e-mail that address any more. E-mail one of my ranchocurioso addresses (lindsay or daisy) or my gmail address (cozmictwinkie).

Frickity frick frick! XP

It's really time I updated this thing. Christmas? Good grief!

Someone broke into my car last night, and instead of taking something monetarily valuable like, oh say, the stereo, or the portable speakers I just bought that were sitting right in plain sight, they instead decided to raid my glove compartment (which contained a pair of scissors, some maps, the owner's manual and the registration and insurance card to my car, thanks assholes) and a bag of crap I'd cleaned out from my old car (I'm borrowing my sister's old car until I find a new one) which was mostly full of stuff I'd had stuck to my dashboard. Nothing really valuable there, either, except for my beloved Derf charm that :iconarondraws: made for me.

So really, it's just a fucking nuisance. I'm out $100 for the window repair, and my mom has to reorder the registration card. My car wasn't parked on the street, either. It was in the locked parking garage in my apartment complex. I FEEL SAFE!

I thought I could get away with just asking for them on Daisy, but since I've yet to get a single response, I'll make a post here too:

December is always hugely busy for me (as for others, I'm sure) and this year it's been made even more busy by a new (awesome) job. So I'm asking for guest strips! And this year, I'm taking guest strips for both Daisy AND Freshman 15!

Don't be discouraged by percieved artistic inability. As past submitters know, I very gleefully accept all manner of guest comic. You guys make awesome stuff. :3

They're still open, for anyone who was wondering. I'm in search of a second job at the moment, since the one part time job is just barely keeping me afloat, but in the meantime I thought I'd see if anyone wants to pay me to do what I love.


Digital:
$10 for a 1-character inked sketch, $5 each additional character.

$30 for a full color image, $10 each additional character.

Conbadges (cos I still do those):
$6 for an inked badge, $16 for a colored one. Add $3 for lamination.

Watercolor/Prismacolor Marker:
11x15": $40 for one character, $15 for each additional character.

10x10": $30 for one character, $10 for each additional character.

5.5x8.8": $20 flat rate, although you can't really fit more than one or two characters on there anyway.

I can do watercolor easier than I can do Prismacolors right now, since my pens are back at my house in Riverside, and I don't have a good way to transport them. But if you really want one, I can retrieve my pens, it'll just take longer. Incidentally, if anyone was able to find me a nice, portable storage bin to transport my pens in, I'd gladly make them a picture in return. I'd like it to have multiple compartments so it's easy to locate colors, and it needs to be able to hold over 200 pens.

Shipping is built into the price of the traditional pieces. I'll e-mail you a nice, big copy of any digital image you commission, but I'm not in a good situation right now to mail out prints. If you really want one, along with the original sketch of the image, the cost for printing and shipping is $5, but keep in mind it'll take longer.

Knitting! I can do so many more things than I could the last time I was offering knitting commissions! Armwarmers, legwarmers and kercheifs have been added, as well as the usual scarves, hats and purses. I'm also experimenting with neckwarmers (like a scarf, but shorter, closing with a button rather than tying around your neck.) Prices range from $10 to $50, obviously more yarn equals higher price, but I'm trying to keep prices as low as I'm comfortable with (so I don't scare anyone away, $50 really only refers to messenger bags, since they're a lot of work to make.)

So note me or e-mail me if you're interested! Thank you everyone!

Computer Woes

I love my laptop dearly, but oh does it frustrate me sometimes.

It no longer works without its power cord. Not for more than ten minutes or so, anyway. And it doesn't warn me its battery is low, then go to sleep like it should. It shuts itself down. But whatever. I'm not all that likely to use it someplace where I can't plug it in anyway.

Now the button for the trackpad is messed up. Sometimes I press it and it does nothing. Other times I press it once and it double clicks. Which means simply selecting something is difficult.

I'm praying for a cheap fix. I'm hoping one of the Apply Geniuses can just pop open the case and spray some canned air in there or something. I can't really afford a major repair right now.

Until then, I guess I'll just use the mini-mouse (heh) I have, making my laptop even less portable.

EDIT: I should clarify: I don't really care about the battery problem. I've investigated it thoroughly, and it turns out it's a regular problem with this specific computer. I can't do much to fix it save for buying a new battery. But it doesn't bother me enough to do that. What's really bugging me is the trackpad button. That's a little harder to ignore.
