Thank you for all the birthday wishes!

Thank you for all the birthday wishes!

I am officially 35 DUN DUN DUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNN.  On my way to hagdom, which I kind of look forward to. My mother says I was born an old woman, so I'm just acquiring a shape to match my soul hahahaha.

Submitting backlog, fanart, so on.

Submitting backlog, fanart, so on.

Hello all yous guys. It's a new freakin' year and boy are my arms tired. I have a shitton of art I've been hoarding in need of uploading. In order to avoid a deluge I'll schedule it. Everything is posted on my Patreon if you want to join:   https://www.patreon.com/hibbary Secondly, for those who are new or who missed the other journals, I have a fanart account here: ~we-were-in-love (https://www.deviantart.com/we-were-in-love)  A lot of it is just scratches and scribbles. I'm thinking that the VERY BEST ones I'm going to crosspost here. There's a handful worthy of being in my main gallery. So if you find the same art in either place, I'm not stealing from myself. It's me. As for

-Crossposted from FA, so if you're there and don't feel like reading the same thing twice.... :P I'm soooo bad at posting up journals these days. Kinda disappeared off the face of the planet. So here's an update. Site work has slowed down a good deal, for which I am grateful. I always have a low-energy period in spurts throughout fall and then during most of winter followed by a wild burst of output when it finally warms up in spring. I'm PRETTY sure I'm solar-powered. The bad news is that my income has more or less ground to a halt. Which like, rice and beans for the hibbary this winter; but the GOOD news is that I can finally focus on pa

Jeebus this year just whizzed right by. Moved again. Finally settled. Getting ready for Furpocalypse, for which I am one of the GOHs. If you're in the Northeast somewhere, stop in by! :P Thanks for all the birthday wishes! I'm on DA for the first time in a few weeks after moving and getting a new HD in my aging computer. Seems like most folk have moved to Tumblr :P

Lawd, have I been hoarding art

Lawd, have I been hoarding art

Nothing spectacular but a whole lot of little things. So I'm dusting off the ol gallery. Get ready for a tidal wave.

Someone made me a sculpture and it's amazing!

Someone made me a sculpture and it's amazing!

I received it a few days ago but I've been busy with work, babysitting my Patreon, and being frazzled in between :D   It's so awesome. I love the eyes especially. And the jaw shape. It's going to live up on my computer tower with my cat and butt dragon. The artist is ~HereThereBeSculpture (https://www.deviantart.com/heretherebesculpture)  She lives near my old hometown. She wanted to make a sculpture version of  and I thought, how cool is that! She shipped me the original and I'm astounded that it arrived unbroken. That is some primo packing. She'd be great for MLP commissions I think.

Hey everyone! It's gonna be a fun, happy day. I've had a great week making art for my Patreon. If you wanna get me a birthday gift, consider signing up!   https://www.patreon.com/hibbary?ty=h

Would you guys like to see me make more art?

Would you guys like to see me make more art?

If so, you can help by becoming my patron at Patreon:  https://www.patreon.com/hibbary?ty=h As I started living an adult life and needing more dollars I had to put the vast majority of my creative energy and work hours into my day job. With Patreon it gives me a little wiggle room in order to make practice art, fun art, paintings, and so on. The more people pledge, the more art I'll be able to make. Though my Patrons get early access, that art will be posted here for those people who are unable to donate. So please consider pledging so I can get the ball rolling on regular artwork again.

WOW this place is dead!!!!

WOW this place is dead!!!!

I guess Tumblr is the new DeviantART. I still can't get into that place. On the upside there are far fewer trolls here than ever. It just isn't worth it anymore, I suppose. I'm going to have some freetime for once in the summer and I wonder what all y'all (whoever is left) would like to see? Tutorials? More textures? Lemme know.

So my friend  asked me to give her a shoutout for a contest going on: http://427418.tbits.me/ Now, my scruples dictate that I ask you to vote whichever one you think is best but I mean, c'mon, she has a ship AND an octopus made of hair on her head.
