This is for the valentines day event.  "Make a journal sharing 5 deviations about a topic you love!"

Have some robots and an android that I have in my favourites.


  • Drinking: Tea
My 'puter's either dead or dying, so the comic might be going on hiatus.  Just a heads up.
  • Drinking: Tea
How'd I get 89 visitors yesterday?

And how do I do that again?

:?
  • Drinking: Tea
Okay.  I've got some good news and bad news. 

The bad news is that I've got a wordpress white screen of death.  The comic is inaccessible, even as an admin (I seriously can't even get to the back end).

The good news is that I get to figure out how to fix it. :meow:

EDIT: Okay, I fixed it. 
  • Drinking: Tea
Two things:

1. I've moved my place of residence three times in the past year.  My head is just starting to come back together.  If the comic goes on hiatus, that's why.  Just an FYI.

2. I'll be posting some old stuff I meant to upload here over the last few years but never got around to in the next few days or so.  And after that, some new stuff.
  • Drinking: Tea
I'm still alive.  October through last week was a big mess.

The comic's still updating and none of the updates were missed, though, so that's good.

Comic: particlesofagreysky.com/
  • Drinking: Tea
The comic's updating again:

particlesofagreysky.com
  • Drinking: Tea
I'm still alive.

I'll do a real update later.  I don't know when, though.
  • Drinking: Tea
I'm still alive and stuff.

It's just that my life is a complete train wreck right now, so I can't get anything done.

Just so you know.

Later.

Hiatus

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 5, 2015, 8:01 PM
I've been on semi-hiatus right now due to a lot of RL crap and health issues.  And now my computer's royally fucked up and I have to go on a real hiatus.

It'll be like the semi-hiatus, but with less art and stuff.  So yeah.

Hopefully, this will be over soon.

So, um...  Bye for now.

ETA: I'll still be popping in to look at stuff and that.  I'm not going to leave completely.  I've really just got to take a break from everything and fix stuff.

Things happening

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 28, 2015, 6:12 PM
Still working on the comic, still trying to find a balance with it and the rest of my art/life.

There's not really anything to report right now beyond that, and that hardly qualifies as news.

That is all.  Carry on.

The new header is really weird.  Everything's backwards.

I don't have anything else to add.  I just needed to say that.

My deviantART Story

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 7, 2014, 8:52 PM
I don't really have a dA story, but dA has been integral in my growth as an artist, more or less.  It's really gave me a community to promote my art and network and that, though other people have already written essays on dA about this, so I don't want to write an essay here.

But I got this account in 2007, then quit art in '08 because of terrible things in real life.  Then I came back in '09 determined to improve and start making comics. 

Here are a few pictures that display my growth as an artist, oh ja.  (Five just wasn't enough, sorry.)

I picked three for each year. 

To summarize:
2009: I started actually trying to develop my craft.
2010: I left behind my childish beginnings and began to grow.  I started to find my voice and style.  This was also when I started exploring my synesthesia.
2011: Took an art class, which resulted in taking a level in bad-ass.
2012: Kept going forward, experimenting and that.  I was really dissatisfied with my work for most of this year, though I like a lot of it now.
2013: More experiments, more boundary pushing.  This was the year that I discovered my love for weird tentacle-armed women with big eyes.
2014: This year I've been working really hard to get better, and so far it's been good, more or less.

Also, I've recently started a comic about Space Aliens.  It will be up on the web later this year, unless I break my hand or something.

(Sorry if this seems vain, I just really needed to do this.)

Comics

Journal Entry: Thu May 22, 2014, 3:33 AM
So I started drawing my comic.  ...The one about space aliens, not the one about robots or the one about hackers.

Comics are hard work.  And right now they're eating up a lot of my time and energy.  Hopefully this will get better in the future, but for now, it's a bit taxing.  So if I seem dead here, that's why.  Just so you know.

That is all.  Please carry on.

Meme questions

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 19, 2014, 12:54 AM
I was tagged over a month ago with this meme, so now I'll do it.  I won't actually be doing the meme, just answering the questions.  So yeah.

Tagged by :icontevarro:

    1.    If you have gained the power of necromancy, who would you bring back from the Netherworld and what would be the first thing you would do with your newfound undead slave? 

I would resurrect an army and take over the world.  As my minions were killed, I would resurrect more and the world would be mine.  And them eventually, the galaxy.

:evillaugh:

(I'd add universe to that, but come on, no one could every live long enough to conquer the universe.)

    2.    If you encountered a boggart in the Harry Potter universe, what do you think will it turn into? 

:shrug: I don't know.  Something terrible that could never be described because looking at it would induce Lovecraftian madness.

    3.    Have you ever laughed so hard that you nearly died because of it? If yes, do elaborate! If no, then just share the most hilarious joke/experience/whatever you have encountered.

No. 

Here's a joke: Two blondes were walking through the woods and found some tracks.  One said they were deer tracks.  The other said they were turtle tracks.  While they were arguing, they got hit by a train.

    4.    A wild escalator is chewing on your stray shoelace and it will soon chew on you! Will you trade a soul before the escalator claims yours? If yes, who?

Couldn't I just cut the shoelace or take off my shoe or something?  In any case, if I had to choose a soul to feed to the escalator to save myself, I'd choose an ex-boyfriend's soul.  The escalator knows which one.

    5.    You are stuck on an elevator with your biggest crush. The rescue team should get you two out in a couple of hours. What would you do to pass the time?

I'm very shy, so nothing will happen beyond awkwardness. 

    6.    If you could pick a fictional character from your own story, or any story should you not have such characters, who would you choose to be your champion against a legion of demons bent on obliterating you from the face of the earth?

Cilla, maybe, because she has super powers, but I don't know who else. 

    7.    What was the most vivid dream/nightmare you ever had?

I can't remember one that I feel comfortable sharing.  If I remember one, I'll edit this to add it.

    8.    What is your opinion on a peanut butter and chocolate sandwich?

I've never had one.

    9.    If you could be Willy Wonka for a day, what would be the first confectionery treat you would dare unleash to the world?

I don't know.  :shrug:

    10. If you could choose a literary genre for your life story, what would it be and why?

Surrealism because reasons.

Zombie t-shirts

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 18, 2013, 1:06 PM
So here's my zombie:
Zombie by godlessmachine

Recently, it's been brought to my attention that some people would like to have a shirt with him on it, so...

He's on t-shirts now:
At Society6
and
Redbubble as well.

No pressure, just letting you know that there are shirts if you want them.

(And if there's anything else I have that you'd like on a shirt, say something and I'll see what I can do.)
