Birthday on January 31! Also, Tumblr

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 16, 2013, 8:01 PM
H'lo everyone! In 15 days (I think? It's on the 31st) I will be 22. :) I'll be holding an ALL DAY BIRTHDAY BASH at my tumblr, which you should totally follow if you wanna talk to me in real-time!

On that note, sorry I haven't been posting much lately. I'm sitting on a slew of paid art that needs finishing, and when I'm not working on that, I'm... probably playing Disgaea or somesuch. Eep.

ANYWAY, hit me up at tumblr and say h'lo! I'm super talky there and you can always drop things in my ask.

Wow, it's been awhile since I drew me an ID! On top of switchin' around my gallery widgets -- and believe me, there are a lot to reorganize -- I'm wondering what to do 'bout that...

Also! My shoutbox's back! I encourage you to shout at me via my shoutbox, because shouting is fun. Also, I haven't had it up for a year and it's starting to look like a portal to summer of 2011.

That's all for now, folks! Catch me at tumblargh if you'd like to see what I'm up to these days~

Hello new watchers! Casual reminder that it's SIX THOUSAND TIMES EASIER to catch up with me o'er at my art/personal tumblargh than it is over here! My ask box is always open and I have replies enabled for people who've been watching me for more than two weeks.

tl;dr i'm internet lonely talk to my blog new people :(

Hello, new watcherfolk!

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 28, 2012, 9:03 PM

Hello, everyone! Thanks for hopping aboard. I'm guessing y'all found your way here through that Fionna and Cake piece that got so much attention.

Firstly, I'd like to direct you to my tumblr, where I'm infinitely more active and more art stoof is posted. I don't put up any WIPs, sketches, etc on dA so as not to clog up your poor inboxes.

Second, why don'tcha come on down and introduce yourself? I'd sure like to get to know y'all. If you're at a loss for things to say, answer one (or all!) of these simple questions~

- Which country are you from?
- How old are you?
- What's your favourite TV show/movie/cartoon/manga/etc?
- Do you have any pets?
- What is your main drawing implement?

Thanks for playing! Looking forward to greeting. :3c

C'mon, bro, I've got tiger blood!

Welcome, New Watchers!

Tue Jun 5, 2012, 3:40 PM

I've racked up quite a few of you in the past month! Welcome!

I'm just popping by to let you know that you can see more by me (WIPs, exercises, other stuff I don't see fit to submit here) at my Tumblargh! I'm super sociable and stuff over there, so feel free to drop things in my ask or fanmail boxes if you wan't a conversation. I don't bite!

Fake Fanart Game v.2

Your Title - version 2.0


Let's play the Fake Fanart Game, everybody!

For those of you who were around for September 2011's round, here's what happens: You make up an imaginary game/film/fic/etc series, and I draw 'fanart' of it for fun! I don't get around to every suggestion, but I will try to take as many as I can~

This year, I'm going to switch up what sort of 'fanart' y'all will see. Curious? No? C'mon, it'll be fun~!

So, to summarize: Comment with a title, a medium, and a short line of dialogue if you want to play. Let's be a little silly this March!


Big Sappy Birthday Journal

Basically, I adore y'all.

I'm not gonna draw this out since you've got better things to do than listen to me, but I just wanna say this past year's been mega rad, with no small thanks to you peeps! Seriously, y'all are the best. I'm still playing the catchup game re: my art, but since I've had you folk at my back, I've been less disheartened about the whole 'late bloomer' thing. I don't aspire for greatness, only respectability, and it's absolutely wunnerful to know I've got a little respect already. :>

I've made some grrrreat friends since January 2011! I'd thank y'all individually, but I'm afraid I'll miss someone and hurt their feelings. Meep. You guys know who you are! I'm always ready an' willing to meet new peeps, so if you haven't hit me up yet, do. I've got more free time than you can begin to process.

I'm tacklin' the 365 project again this year in hopes of scaling another rung of the big ol' catchup ladder. I can't promise much, but I hope you'll stay for the ride anyway! Your friendship and support means the world to me. <3 There are a number of things I wanna try this year, so uh, look forward? Maybe? I'unno, just come down here and give me a hug!



Long story short: I had a great year, and I'm lookin' forward to many great years ahead. Y'all are free to be my BFF. Just hit me up on

Upcoming Birfday Ho Snap

Thu Jan 19, 2012, 10:27 PM

So, my birthday's on the 31st.

Ho my gosh.

I'll write a big, fat, sappy birthday journal on the day of. Until then, uh, wow! Upcoming birthday! I'm tryna be less depressing about my late bloomer status, so you won't hear much griping from me (although believe me, I'm weepin' on the inside). 

Anyway! How many of you guys would attend a pre-birthday (Jan 30th) tinychat with me? I think it'd be mad rad since I can't have a real-life party this year due to financial constraints! We could hang out for a few hours (or the whole day, I'll be completely unoccupied!) and  stuff. There are so many of you I want to get to knowwwww ; A;

So yes! Birthdays, chats, and all that jazz! Comment with your birthdays and I'll make a note to draw you birthday presents when the time rolls around!

Where the heck did Thursday go?

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 30, 2011, 11:09 PM

argh, sorry guys! i hate to have neglected you during the holidays, but i'd been tackling a metric crapton of personal drama that really put me out of the holiday mood. :< i've still been drawing, just not so well it's worth posting on the internet!

things are getting better and i hope to have something pretty to show you for 365 Sketches Project 2, day 1! i'm so glad to have made it this far. soon i'll be all better and everything can be rad again.

wait up for me, guys! i'm coming home! <3

ohmiGOSH it's been one year

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 2, 2011, 5:45 AM





seriously pals in this past year i've made a crapton more new friends than i thought i would. i heart each and every one of you and i wish more of you would talk to me! i don't bite and i love meeting new people, so please, don't hesitate to poke me on messenger or attend my tinychats. <3

i'll avoid becoming too sentimental (we'll save that for my birfday pff) but i just wanna let y'all know you've played an instrumental part in helping me start moving past my 'late bloomer shame'. most of you oughta know by now that i've got some huge hangups about making the transition from casual artist to full-blown hobbyist in my early twenties. the love you guys've been sending my way is oftentimes overwhelming! you've shown much kindness, insight and wisdom re: this insecurity et i doubt i'd have lasted this long into the 365 sketches project without you cheering me on.

i'd thank people individually, but i'm afraid i'll forget someone and hurt their feelings! you all know who you are. again, i'm always looking to meet new peeps and if you wanna be my palsie, just hit me up! random notes, comments, ims make my life. i won't claim to be the bestest friend a pal or gal could have, but i do try! <3

anyway, it's 6am and i guess i should wrap things up. it's been grand and i look forward to many more years with you lot! bye bye!

Voice Q and A! Come one, come all!

'Sup guys. Awhile back, my bromie GangstaBoogie suggested that I should do a voice Q & A. I'unno how many of you are curious as to how I sound, but humour me why don'tcha~

All you gotta do is pop a question in the comments, and I'll respond by way of a voice clip. Ask me anything you like -- but if the question's too outlandish, you'll get an equally outlandish reply in return. ;D

Ask away~!

* I haven't forgotten your requests. As you can see by the submission slowdown, I've just been kinda blurghy art-wise. Meep.

Y'all might have noticed I've gone a little quiet. Mama Nature slipped my uterus a memo and ever since I've been artistically uninspired. Since I can't be arsed to draw any of my own crud, I guess it's time for another

The first 5 people to comment get a doodle request! One character per person, please. These doodles won't be awful pretty (this is me we're talking about here!) but if you wanna help a sistah out, leave a comment.

More Meme Fun!

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 23, 2011, 1:02 AM
The rules:
1. You must post 10 different questions, but they must be your own questions, don't copy anyone else's questions.
2. You must then tag 10 people who must answer your questions, then ask 10 different questions.
3. They can be random questions but mustn't be anything rude or invasive.

1. Do you have any "lazy clothes?"
My jogging pants and old loose shirts from my teenage tomboy days. I throw these on if I'm off to run an errand or somesuch.

2. Favorite Disney prince?
Naveen. I'm weak for his sense of humour. <3

3. What's the one pairing you ship that, in retrospect, is actually really weird?
I have a few weird pairings, actually, but I used to ship Balthier/Al-Cid of FF12 like burning. They're rivals and they never exchange words once, but for whatever reason...

4. What would you rather be a survivor of: zombie apocalypse, or vampire take-over?
I'd rather survive the vampire take-over. There's a chance them vampires would prefer to use us humans as food banks instead of outright slaughtering us all, right? Anyway, I'd rather die of blood loss by vampire feeding than having my limbs torn off and my brain devoured.

5. If you could live any video-game for a day, what would you pick?
Pokemon Blue, the first video game that stole my heart. <3

6. Did you ever make a Mary-Sue/Gary-Stu?
I got into fandom when I was in sixth grade. I think that answer speaks for itself. |||orz

7. Favorite vegetable?
Are potatoes a vegetable? If so, then yeah. Potatoes. So versatile!

8. What's that song that you can't stand but you sing along anyway because of the melody?
Rebecca Black's Friday. I can't help it! It's a terrible song lyrically, but oh my god why is its chorus so catchy.

9. What's your big hot-button? Like, what can someone be totally stupid about and it would set you into a burning rage of "ACTUALLY...!"
I'm usually chill enough to leave people to their ignorance, but I can't stand high school/college students who disdain their less academically accomplished peers. I won't hesitate to remind anyone who does that you don't need a diploma to make a positive impact on the world!

10. What was your first slash ship?
Haruka/Michiru! Of course, I'd only seen the English dub (this was in the 90s, you guys) so I thought they were cousins and felt bad for shipping 'cest. LOL.

Okay, my questions for y'all.
1. Are you part of a fandom you're frankly embarrassed to be involved in?
2. How do you feel about babies?
3. How has your taste in ships evolved over time?
4. Do you have any uncommon phobias?
5. What was your favourite cartoon growing up?
6. Do you eat three regular meals?
7. Favourite article of clothing?
8. What's your favourite food to make?
9. One thing that's guaranteed to pick you up after a bad day?
10. One ship you hate but everyone else seems to love?

And I tag EVERYONE WHO'S EVER COMMENTED ON MY BS. I don't want to re-tag the same 10 people, y'know? Just comment here if you do it!

I've been tagged! 10 Useless Facts About Thursday

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 29, 2011, 2:02 PM
Rules :
01 - You must post these rules
02 - Each tagged person must post 10 things about themselves on their journal
03 - You have to choose and tag 10 people and post their icons on the same journal
04 - Go to their pages and tell them you tagged them
05 - No tag backs
06 - No crap in the tagging section about "you are tagged if you read this". You legitimately have to tag 10 peoples

1) I am arachnophobic like you can't believe. I'll cry if a spider gets the jump on me. If I spot a reasonably large one in my room, I'll start calling for help, and if nobody comes to my rescue I'll begrudge everyone within shouting range for the rest of the day. LOL.

2) I prefer women to men and am presently enamoured. <3

3) I get carsick pretty easily, but I don't get planesick, trainsick, bussick, or seasick. Strange!

4) I like the movie version of Grease far more than I ought to. These days it's totally camp, but I can't resist the music. So... catchy...!

5) I hit puberty early and stopped growing around 16. It used to bother me, but now that I'm all grown up I'm quite content with my height. Short is huggable, am I right? :>

6) I love genderbends! I love genderbends so much. My favourite episode of Futurama is -- surprise surprise -- the one where everyone gets genderbent.

7) I gain weight super duper easily. Last year, I let myself go around Christmas and ended up working my arse off in the spring because of it. But what can I say? Christmastime comes with all sorts of tasty things!

8) When I was 6, I fell down a ladder chute... and onto the person standing at its base. I walked away with minimal injuries, but the woman who caught me got the scare of her life.

9) I haven't had a bubble bath in over six years, because the bathooms at my current residence are icky and impossible to relax in.

10) If left alone, I can sleep upwards of fourteen hours.

EDIT 07-12-11:
Thanks for playing along, guys! I got far more responses than I anticipated, haha. I'm afraid I may not doodle every single one, but the ones my muse does resonate with will get their well-deserved scribbles. You guys are great sports! Glad to have you around. <3


I'm so bogged down with health/work-related things this month it's threatening to nuke my art drive. I figure y'all can help with that by indulging me in a little prompt game!

It's simple. Make up a title, genre, and one quote from a pretend film/book/videogame and drop it in the comments. I'll draw 'fanart' of these imaginary series for my 365 Sketches project. Sound like a plan? :> If this goes well I'll do it again the next time I run out of steam~

Just use this handy-dandy little form and we'll get rolling ASAP.

Medium: [film, novel, game, etc.]

Have fun, guys! I know I will. :>
