Fenris Designs 4.0 + Furry FiestaAfter much planning and trial and error, I'm pleased to report that Fenris Designs has undergone rebranding. I now have a new, completely overhauled website, and exciting new things are coming close behind. Apart from that, I've given Fen-Fen a new Facebook page and his own Tumblr, and soon, a new look. While he may take a little prodding, expect him to have a lot of mileage from them.

And for Twitter!
In other news...
For the first time ever, I shall be attending a convention. From February 20 to 22, I will be in Dallas for Texas Furry Fiesta. I'm excited because right now, my entire convention experience consists of a
Anyone want to buy a tablet?I got a new Cintiq today. While it was a bit of a pain setting it up, especially for a southpaw like myself, it was worth it, now sitting proudly before my monitor.
In short, I now have an large Intuous4 that needs selling.
Four years old, it's in perfect working condition. While it does have a couple of score marks on its surface, they don't affect the tablet's performance.
It comes with all its original packaging and accessories, including drivers and activation code, cable, pen, mouse, and interchangeable nibs.
If you're interested, note me and we can work out something.
UPDATE 8/12/2014: The Wacom is sold.
Twelve years and a name changeOLD! Hadn't celebrated this in awhile, but no complaints about the whole twelve years of deviantART. I'm actually thrilled that it was able to last so long, let alone retain its influence in the art community. I've been a member for over eight of those years. I got my start as an artist there, through high school, college, and now my current job search and freelance efforts. No regrets.
Why the name change? Admittedly, it's a marketing gimmick. I registered on dA as a sophomore in high school. Two years later my website went live and I've been using that to "sell" my art to the world. I figure now that I'm not a student anymore, things should look more like they were made with business in mind. Fenris is still here, and he still pretends to be a red wolf when no one's looking, but he's taking things a little more seriously now.
Also, completely overhauling the website at the moment, so it doesn't look like it was designed four ye
NEW SEASON OF FEN RANTS! Also, ActFur Season 4.Previously on ActFur On Air...
"You'll never get away with this! I'll never reveal the recipe to bacon salt!" "Oh mein freund, I haff vays of making you tok!" "...is that a penguin?"
"Overblown defamation of character!" "Sudden unrelated revelation!" *stomp stomp stomp SLAM!* "Stunned silence."
"Okay, no problem. Just look for strands of blue and yellow fur, and fix whatever they're attached to. That'll shut down the nuclear reactor."
"Kell Bengal? Is that really you? After all these years?!" "BEEP BOOP BEEP BOOP. I AM THE TIGER YOU SPEAK OF." "It IS you!"
"In all my years, I've never seen a staircase claim so many dragons." "Won't somebody think of the children?!" *SLAP*
[SCENE EDITED BY STANDARDS AND PRACTICES]
"The tests are back, and...Mushi is the father." "Gasp!"
And now, Season 4 of ActFur On Air.
Yes, it's back! And this season comes with a new website and two new resident segments! Tune in!
Job search timeSo, now that I've gone through that whole Master's Degree thing, the next step would be putting all that work to good use. I'm looking for work at the moment, preferably as along the lines of designing for an ad agency or a marketing firm. Illustration is also on the table, very much along the lines of the stuff in my gallery. Graphics, logos, layouts, comics, websites, not too incredibly picky at the moment.
If you or someone you know might need a helping hand, send a note or an email. If need be, feel free to show off my portfolio if it'll help.
Even if you don't need someone fulltime, I do take illustration commissions. Details available on my profile at Fur Affinity.
A Week's Worth of MilestonesSo, apart from the usual silence, there's been an unusually high amount of activity this week.
Birthday: I'm 24 now as of December 13th. Kinda a rainy day, so I celebrated with an okay movie.
Graduation: I attended a graduation ceremony this afternoon, receiving my MA in graphic design. That also explains where the heck I've been the past few months (though not the past couple years.) For my master's project, I basically wrote a 100-page book detailing a fictional advertising campaign. Once the library gets the thing printed, I'll most likely post a few samples.
My take on the ceremony itself? Well, pretty much the same as the last: wearing a silly-looking hat, pretending you're important, and motivational speakers that think they're even more important.
Twitter: Broke 1,000 tweets today by riffing on the aforementioned ceremony. Why's that important? Because
Fen's Computer Wars 4: Now with RaccoonsI've been kinda holding the news for a month and a half, just to be sure that there were no major issues. Thankfully there aren't, so yea, happy to say I retired the old computer and got a new one. When my old Celeron of five years decided it didn't want to interact with my printer anymore, I figured it was time to switch it out for a a slightly more competent Pavilion Elite. As I have yet to run into a major crap-up, I'd say this computer has well and truly met my low expectations.
Well, except for one particularly odd occurrence. Shortly after unboxing, it proceeded to seek out 97-pound weaklings and, well...
On an unrelated note, a family of raccoons decided the middle of September was a great time to move into my attic again and hold what I assume are rave parties at 3 in the morning. An exterminator managed to extract a four-month-old from inside the walls before it could die and stink up the house for prob
Actfur On Air, Season 3So, when I first heard the news, I was like, "Derp?"
Then I was like, "Omigawdomigawdomigawd!" Much flailing ensued.
Then I grabbed a Sharpie and some Bristol board, wrote down the news, and dashed into the streets while screaming it at the top of my lungs. Reception was weak at first, but it slowly built momentum, onlookers got excited, and soon we had a citywide, statewide, nationwide phenomenon. This got some of the greatest academic minds thinking, political leaders and captains of industry collaborated, and soon we had cured most of the world's ills. No disease, no war, no famine, no Justin Bieber. And all was bliss.
Then I woke up and found myself clinging to a telephone pole, covered in what I hope was orange marmalade. The crowd below me was casting understandably odd looks.
Nonetheless, the news is still incredible: Actfur On Air is back! And with this season comes a shiny new website, a new game, and your favorite old segments and silliness.

Lackadaisy - Card GameSome of you might remember me talking about the card game last year. My publisher only had a very small number of them in stock, but they're finally back. We made a lot more of them this time - and with new, custom dice too!
If interested, here's where to order.
Lackadaisy on Patreon
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!
DeviantArt, deviantART and Lots of Things TooWe're going to be DeviantArt, officially. But you can always call us deviantART. You'll get to be retro, and that's always... well, retro! This goes for DA and dA, too.
It was nice to see Moonbeam13 and starvingartist today in Toronto. We got some lunch. Then 'Beam was nice enough to drive me to the airport with Rob. Rob! Happy Birthday Moonbeam!
I'm in the sky eating a banana at the moment. I wonder what monkeys would make of me eating a banana at 30,000 feet. Let alone journaling on DA from here.
I was in Toronto visiting Autodesk, and the teams behind Sketchbook and Pixlr and other awesome apps they have. What wonderful people. I really enjoyed seeing what they're up to, it's all very exciting.
I've been hanging out on #devart on dAmn today, and I asked Pickley to pull together all the best scripts and projects out there that improve dAmn. This way DA can consider buying the code, interfaces, etc. and

Update from DD-Catalogue FounderDear All,
Thank you for 'watching' DD-Catalogue, and for all your support over the last 4 years. You may have noticed that the group has recently lost super group status. I'd like to apologise for the disruption this has caused to our Gallery and homepage. I'd also like to apologise for the lack of updates and features recently. I have neglected the group somewhat during my university study.
...but I'm planning a revamp to make it better than ever!
I would appreciate it if you could give me some feedback in the comments on some of the following:
What do you like most about DD-Catalogue?
What would you like to see from DD-Catalogue? (features/interviews/polls ??)
Would you donate a small amount towards Super Group status?
Would you like to be on the admin team?
Thanks for reading,
Add this Journal to your 'favourites' if we have your support in bringing DD-Catalogue back to life!
