I've already announced it just about everywhere, but in case you missed it - Drugs & Wires is kickstarting it's 1st volume!
(along with some exclusive digital extras and physical merch)
We got funded within 24 hours and can't wait to announce more stretchgoals next week!

Time to once again dust off my DA account, dump some art and update this thing before sneaking back into the shadows :p (shadows being Twitter, Tumblr and every other social media)

So, this year I've taken the plunge and quit my safe full-time job as a 3D artist to try freelance once more. Some of you might remember me doing DA commissions here many moons ago when I barely knew what I was doing :p. Well, after many years of studying and then working I'm finally open for freelance and commission work once again. I might do a classic character commission announcement post in the near future when I'm done with my current workload, but in the meantime, for any projects and enquiries, feel free to contact me at cryoclaire .art@ gmail.com :)

This also means that I might be doing more Drugs & Wires related things this year! Speaking of D&W, here's my upcoming convention appearances:
-MCM Birmingham, 18-19th March
-TCAF, Toronto,  13-14th May
(That's right, first time in Canada! Very exciting. Still sorting the travel stuff though, but fingers crossed.)
-MCM London 26-29th May

Also applied to Thought Bubble and ELCAF, but have yet to hear back.

So yeah, drop by if you're there! I'm not sure whether I can manage getting Issue 3 in time for MCM Birmingham, but it'll definitely be around for May events!

Finally, some places where you can find D&W and me personally:

I really don't update here really often, do I? Anyway, for those of you who don't follow my twitter or tumblr, quite a few
things have been happening over the past few months. 

-MCM London Comic Con (23-25th Oct) is now less than two weeks away. As always, I'll be in the Comic Village, selling stuff and drawing! We're also launching issue 1 of Drugs & Wires webcomic in print. Theres' also gonna be some new postcards and badges and possibly prints!

-Thought Bubble Festival in Leeds (14-15th Nov) I'm also gonna be at TB for the first time ever. Super excited to check it out! I've got a half-table at the TB Marquee, so I might not be able to bring all of my usual stock, but the new book's definitely gonna be there.

-D&W Merch Store is finally up and running. I'm gonna add more designs as time goes on.

-And finally, the next chapter of Drugs & Wires is launching next Monday! Thanks for all of you who waited. I really can't wait to get it out there.

Once again I'm behind on updating DA on the news :) But yes, i'll be at MCM Comic Con again next week! (that's 22-24th May, by the way)
 There will be a couple of new prints and postcards, as well as my collection of old Drugs & Wires strips and the last copies of Dreamspace book.
Come visit, say hi and get showered in my new Drugs & Wires webcomic flyers.

Just realised I never actually made an official journal announcement about this. Some of you might have seen my activity announcements (still no idea how this works or if people see those), but if not, the reason my gallery's been so quiet lately is this webcomic I'm working on:
Drugs and Wires Webcomic Launch by cryo-draws

If you like your protagonists depressing, your fictional universe - bleak and dystopian, and you cyberpunk stuck in the 90's, this might be your jam.
 You can read it here - www.drugsandwires.fail/ or on Tapastic.

It's everything I've been slowly developing for the past couple of years mixed in with the writing skill of my awesome collaborator, Io Black.
At the moment it updates every Sunday, but I'll be posting announcements on my tumblr along with random doodles and livestreams (yeah, those are a thing now!)

Sup! MCM went really well for us last week, Dreamspace sold a lot better than I expected and the remaining copies are ready for online sale.
You can get it in my online store.
You can also get 38mm buttons with it, and the first 20 people to order get a free postcard, though there's only a few slots left :P

Hey sup! For all of you attending London MCM Comic Con next week, I will be selling things at the Comic Village again, so come find me :) (I'll post a map here if/when I get it...)
I will be selling my 80-page print version of Dreamspace:

more pictures here
It's got some new art and the writing's been revamped with the help of my collaborator Io Black. I'll make it available online soon, but do come and have a look if you're at MCM.
UPD: Heres the map!

For those few of you who have been following my online weird visual novel thing, DS 3.03 is finally out after months of drawing :)
You can check it out here
I will eventually continue Dan's post-implant adventures in a more conventional webcomic, but I can't tell when I'll be able to start on it just yet. We'll see?

...Everything about the new season of LoK makes me happy. Took two seasons to get good, but i'm glad I didn't quit. The episodes finally feel like the original Avatar again! <3

I must fanart.

hey guys! This weekend will be my first time exhibiting at MCM (or, anywhere)
I'm going under my real life name, Mary Safro, at CN2. Here's a map:


I'll have some A4 prints, postcards, and Drugs & Wires book (a collection of all the comic strips I've drawn so far)
Come say hi if you're going! : D

I admit, I am pretty nervous. Hope I've got enough stuff to interest people. But hopefully it all goes well!

Thought I'd share a bunch of links where you can find my stuff.
Tumblr -The main thing. Everything goes there
Twitter -Pretty much just crossposts from tumblr. Twitter's weird, man.
Facebook -Art page.
Dreamspace webcomic -Updates every million years or so. I'll link to part 3 once its done, feel free to check out the first two if you haven't :)
Redbubble -Prints, though only a few of them so far.

Haven't updated this journal since the first one came out. Now might be a good time.
Dreamspace 2.02 is online

work in progress and more things on my tumblr


I guess I can say I kind of have a webcomic now, despite its questionable format and everything.

:) In other news I booked a table at London MCM Expo this May! It's my first time doing anything like that, so hopefully things will work out.

Dreamspace is now a thing
Beware of the glitchy seizure-inducing gifs, drugs and "cyberspace".
Instructions: Keep clicking until you go blind.


Oh and there are some snippets of it here, for fellow tumblr dwellers.

EDIT:changed the link since Neocities isn't working at the moment.

Typically, every time I go through my gallery I end up deleting some of my cringey artwork from a couple years ago (as well as some newer monstrosities..). Which is why I prefer not to browse my gallery and live in blissful ignorance >_>
...Except that with DA's new More/More like this feature I am constantly subjected to my old stuff, and it always chooses the least flattering, least relevant stuff I don't even remember anymore.
I've had a few cleansing sprees already and I'm contemplating some more if DA keeps on showing it off. D: DAMN YOU DEVIANTARTTTT

29th March marks my 10th Deviantart anniversary. (counting my older account, of course..and no I'm not linking to that D: )
I was 13 when I uploaded my first picture! I don't even remember what it was. I think it was a godawful drawing of Noodle from Gorillaz, or maybe some shitty pixel animation.
Then came the teenage-angst-drawings, some stupid generic cynical goth stuff, stupid anime stuff (NARUTO YOU GUYZ), stupid "original" stuff, stupid "i want to be in the industry" stuff...aaand 10 years later I'm still here, drawing bullshit, having the most inconsistent gallery ever and achieving absolutely nothing! 8D

In any case, thanks everyone for sticking around. I don't thank people on their pages as often as I used to (and many hate that anyway), but It's really appreciated and I usually check profiles of people that watched me anyway, being a creep and all.

But yeah, see you guys in another 10 years or something, as I don't think I'll be updating this journal any time soon :V

Damn, I'm pretty sure I was supposed to say something deep and meaningful.

few months ago I posted a link to my "fandom tumblr", except that soon afterwards I've realised that it's really not my cup of tea and deleted it out of embarrassment :D
Luckily, tumblr's really easy with names, so my new one uses the same name again.
new sketchblog
my general tumblr cyberpunk/other's art/horror/industrial music and whatever else I like, it's been around for a while and up to now i used it for drawings too.
