Hi folks!  Hope you're all having a good start to 2017...I know I am!  Last I checked, anyway.

So, it's been a while since I last updated, but I want to take a few minutes and catch up with all y'all as far as plans for this coming year.

I Am Quite Active, Despite My Absence
As you've probably noticed from my sporadic art posts, I've been putting a lot of time in trying to improve my digital art skills.  I've been really happy with how things are going the last few months, and have been trying to string together a few projects to write and illustrate for the comic year.  I have a Gathion-related comic that I'm going to start in on soon, as well as writing ideas for other short comics to give myself some practice on that front.  I'm very excited about this first's a 4-5 pager, so it's no huge burden like I usually dump on myself with Gathion.  Hopefully this will hone my efficiency with comic layout so I can do additional comics, but I'll be happy just to see this one through to completion. :)

Opening Commissions, Trades and Collabs
- I will be posting a Price List on January 5, once I finish getting everything lined up.  All the details about commissioning will be available through that. (Link will be here once that's done)
- Trades will also be opening, though in an effort to make sure I don't overload myself and not have time for my own stuff, I may only take one or two at a time, if there's any interest.
- I would love to collab with other artists!  I've done a couple now with :iconmad-but-happy: and :iconthreadsofnate: (formerly NaterRang), and am up for any aspect of the collab.  It can be for fun, or for a commissionable project...I'm fine either way. :) Feel free to note me if interested!

The Artist Challenge
I gave myself a challenge to draw a character of a different nationality every week of the year in 2017.  I admittedly announced the challenge believing I was going to be devoid of anything else to do, but the last couple months I've been fortunate to conjure up a lot of stuff to keep myself productive.  The Artist Challenge, while compelling, doesn't seem to have generated much interest, and would certainly take away time from doing the comics and commissions/trades/collabs I'm aiming to do.  That said, I've decided to shelve the Artist Challenge for another time.  I will instead dedicate the time I would've spent on that to preparing comics, starting with the one mentioned above. :D My apologies to anyone who may have been looking forward to the challenge...I promise to consider it again down the road!

Other Stuff?
I'm hoping to become active again here on DA, once I get around some of the frustrations I've had with the site's functionality.
I would love to try streaming!  I've made a few bumbling attempts in the past, and now have a second monitor, though tests have show it to be kinda choppy, so I'm not sure about that yet.  I guess we'll see.
I am on Discord!  I do have Skype as well, but it works kinda weird on my computer, and I don't fully trust it.  If you're interested, feel free to note me and I can add you. :)

Any questions?  Things you want to see?  Please feel free to comment below, or note me!  Thanks guys, hope to see more of ya this year!!!

Been largely inactive as of late, keeping to myself.  Been strongly considering rebooting here and elsewhere sometime in the next few months though.

here's a petition to bring your favorite characters, like sally acorn and the freedom fighter in the IDW comic series. would you like to put your support on petition, to bring back the freedom fighters into the IDW comic series, by any chance?…
