Summer Status Update
Greetings everyone! I figured it's time I did another update on what's going on at my end and what you can expect in foreseeable future.
Topics accompanied by relevant imagery!
I'm going to have a month worth of summer holidays in late July and early August, and that's when a lot of the stuff below might happen. (Not the stuff in the images, the other topics!)
MiSha Shower Photoshoot, remaining two pictures
I still intend to finish this series, and the remaining two pictures are pretty much decided, but still at the sketch phase. Thanks to everyone who voted in the poll in my previous journal entry a while back. I hope to finish the last two pictures during the summer, with the end of my summer holidays being a sort of deadline.

The Fate of the Ballpoint Pen Doodles
Sadly, it's looking increasingly like after my summer holidays, I won't be able to do ballpoint pen doodles at work anymore. This time it's actually a simple 'yes' or 'no' result, and not that doodling away at work would get harder. I might be transferring to a more crowded work area, which lacks all the things I've needed for doodling so far. Privacy and flexible work pace to name the two important bits. A huge shame, but to be honest, this was supposed to happen like a year ago already. Everything since then has been extra anyways, pretty much. Here's hoping I can transfer some of the creative energy to doodling at home instead. And I still have almost two months worth doodling potential at work. Let's see if I can get a few more ballpoint works done in that time!
MiSha sketches as of late
Those of you following my scrapbook submissions will have noticed a bunch of monotone shaded MiSha doodles appearing in my gallery in recent days. I suddenly had the urge to doodle away at some summer-themed and/or lightly clothed art featuring MiSha, mostly in non-nude situations. Originally I was thinking that maybe I could do a bunch of these, color them in higher resolution down the road and maybe put together a small MiSha artbook or something, but to be honest, considering the pace I color artworks these days, I doubt I'd ever get something like that done in reasonable timeframe. But maybe I'll get to color one or two of those at random anyways. Still, I might submit more of these doodles. I'm having tons of fun just designing these.
Summer Raffle event?
I'm thinking about holding an event in near future (June/July) that will be a raffle type thing. Basically, there will be lots of prizes, with art request or two as the jackpot, originals of ballpoint pen doodles, as well as smaller prizes like prints and points as well. There will be lots of ways to enter, and you can do multiple of those for extra tickets. Perhaps a new 'task' for each day of the event, to keep people engaged. Will you be participating?
