Whoops.

I've been pretty active on twitter and tumblr, though!
Hey everyone!

Sorry I've been so quiet. A LOT has been going on in life, and most of it has been Not Fun(tm). But, things are finally looking up, and I'll be more active here/there/everywhere soon. I currently have no cons scheduled, commissions are closed (and I have a backlog to finish), but the comic will is back on schedule. I'm hoping 2017 will see us back in the convention circuit, which means stalking con reg this summer. Fingers crossed that we can hit FC, Rainfurrest, BLFC, something on the east coast (not sure what), and if we're VERY lucky-- Confuzzled. Not sure. But we'll work on that. I miss it. I miss YOU guys.

This year is all about getting things in order now that Aaron and I both have jobs again- good jobs! -upgrading equipment, paying things off, repairing credit, etc. Maybe getting a car, since ours was repossessed this last summer (yeah it was a FUN year lemme tell ya). I'm also finally going to get the medical care that I've needed for a while, which will allow me to be at my desk without so much pain. That means MORE art and MORE writing. Yay!

Anyway, just know that I'm not dead. In fact, I'm posting really crappy sketches on my tumblr quite often, which you can see here: gabapple.tumblr.com/

I say crappy because I draw doodles while at work and take photos with my cell phone (that has had no service for months) in poor lighting. But there are occasionally fun things, so go watch me if you're of a tumblring sort!

THANK YOU for your patience and continued support. You're all the best! <3

I just made a huge post on my tumblr blog about commissions, since I owe people art AND an explanation. Please see here for more details: gabapple.tumblr.com/post/11942…

TL;DR - I'm no longer taking personal commissions. I will, however, finish what I owe. Please help me make a new and up-to-date list so that I can keep better track and get everyone taken care of.

Thank you <3
I have been missing for a few months. Not literally, but like, disappeared doing a million things and going through some stuff. But I'm doing my best to get back into the swing of things, so thanks for being patient while I'm figuring everything out. I owe a bunch of people emails and notes and commission updates and con posts and... aaaahhhh! I swear I am chipping away at it every day. 

UHM... will have a con schedule for 2014 up soon... 

And I do have a weasyl account, username 'gab' - www.weasyl.com/~gab

Missed you all re: FC. I really hope we get to go in 2015! Things have just been totally crazy. Layoffs and our house was broken into and we were ROBBED and then like I got sick and missed a bunch of work and fallouts with close friends/family and... ick.

ICK.

But I am still here. Alive and stubborn. Thanks to those who went looking for me when I was missing too long. It means the world. <3
There's not much time left before Confuzzled! I've opened up a limited number of clingy badges to complete and bring to the con, so if you're interested, head over here for details: www.furaffinity.net/journal/46…
Hey everyone!

Thanks for all of the notes and interest lately in the clingy badges etc for pickup at Confuzzled! I haven't announced slots yet because i need to make sure that I get my con work for CFZ done (you know, being the GoH and all) in time, and get caught up on my backlog of commissions, before I take on any more.

I HOPE to make an announcement for slots in a week or two... but really, it comes down to figuring out how much time I'm going to have. I don't wanna make anyone mad at me. :D

Thanks for your patience!!! <3

I've got an icon night lined up and some clingy badge spaces available - go here to find out more!

Hey everyone! I'm currently at Anime Vegas. If you're there, come drop by my table in the Artist Alley. It would be pretty awesome!

YEAH WOOO!

I'm almost sold out of Rainbow Dash buttons, too. So def come get them before they're gone.
Okay, so I'm back from my first selling-at-a-table con, and I'm happy to report that it was AWESOME. Thanks to everyone who stopped by to say hi and buy things - it was wonderful to meet all of you! I don't know that I've ever had so much fun at a con before. :)

The next one coming up is Anime Vegas in November, so let me know if you're coming... and then come say hi to me!
After months and months of saying I was going to get this done, my new portfolio website is FINALLY finished and online! Check it out! 8D

www.gabapple.com/ !!!

I'll probably be rewriting bits of the bio here and there, and changing out portfolio pieces as clients approve recent designs. But I like it SO much better than my old site... sooo much better. :)
Moving is expensive, and we're paying for both places at the moment, so money is tight! What I'm offering are a couple of character commissions, sketchy commissions, icons, and clingy badges! Please see here for details: www.furaffinity.net/journal/32…
Icon commission slots for this sunday!: www.furaffinity.net/journal/31…

I am finally home from FC! And it is really really late so I will make this brief.

OMG <3

I had so much fun catching up with old friends and meeting some of my online favorites for the first time and making all sorts of new friends! It was awesome. I got LOTS of drawing done and will be scanning/posting those soon. Probably tomorrow, since we got in at 4am and there's no way I'm going into work. Awesome. :D

Also hi to all of my new watchers!

...and yes, I am going to try to get a table for next year. For once. Ha ha ... hah.

In town for Anime Vegas right now... loving it! It was a lot of work to get the signs and stuff ready, but it has been SO FUN to see people wearing the shirts I designed and carrying around the con books with my cover... and wearing the badges I designed... and AND looking at the signs that I ordered! HAHAHAHAHAA. I am mad with power.

Also, I saw Gin and Vodka cosplayers! And I've given out a bunch of Detective Conan cards for those who recognized my bag. So fun!

If you're at Anime Vegas, make sure to come to closing ceremonies! I intend to be there. :)

...

Also, who's going to FurCon next year? I WILL BE THERE!
