Brain Melting

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 1, 2011, 3:18 PM

DeviantART Updates

Recently I've had a large influx of people contacting me for commission information and it has caused delays in response as I try to juggle it with my life away from the computer. So I've posted a quick guide for those who are interested in commissioning me.

Since I am really really terrible at CSS I currently only have the guide but will also be putting up a list of examples and prices for those items that actually have a set price. Although I can figure out CSS I'm really inexperienced and it takes me a large amount of time and brain power to make it all work so it may take me a little while to get the 2nd page up.

Life Update

I've been meaning to update for awhile but the last 2 months have been a series of illness and injuries that could be a result of massive burn out from doing 3 cons in a row at the end of October/beginning of November.

Quick list is, came back from Anime-USA (the last con of the 3) with no voice after my small sniffle turned into a massive cough the Friday of the con. My voice came back by the next Saturday probably from the massive amounts of sleep I got but the cough took another 2 weeks to completely clear up. Almost as soon as that cleared up something bit me during the night leading to my right hand bouncing between slightly itchy and swollen to stabbing pain whenever I moved it which took another week and a half to clear up. Went a week completely fine before waking up to a bit of a tooth ache, which the next day ended up being the gums around my wisdom tooth getting badly infected, enough I thought I was also having migraines on top of it. Keeping the area clean and treating with anbesol did the trick and 3 days of taking my pain fueled aggression out on Assasin's Creed I was back to work just in time for Christmas.

Work Update

Was at Magfest this year in the Marketplace and had a really good time. My experience of the Marketplace itself as well as the con was I enjoyed how uniquely the show is being run, sometimes it lead to some headaches but overall it seemed to be a sucess.

Currently working on items for Katsucon as well as a few commissions. I will be in the new Marketplace which has had a major shift in rules this year. As usually I plan to adapt as well as possible and hope the staff are willing to allow a little leeway in the form of warnings if someone has been found breaking a rule due to the new changes in rules/policy.

Sounds like you've been through a lot:hug: Hopefully you're through the worst of it and are on a nice swing of complete recovery

I'm thinking most of the things that happened are a result of being really badly burned out, the fall was really rough and nonstop, not even counting the 3 cons.

Now that I'm recovered enough to the point where I actually want to do work I'm hopeful there won't be a repeat anytime soon.

Thanks for the hugs! They're always helpful. :huggle: :3

I guess I'm lucky on my burn out. Worst I've suffered is just raccoon eyes (and as a raccoon fanatic, it's not something I'd complain about) and maybe a bit stressed and edgey (but I've actually kept that well under control...bets have been made for years on when I'll snap and I haven't yet :dummy: ).

Yeah...gotta keep it in check and get used to handling it is the best advice I can offer from my experience^^; It doesn't make handling it easier or help cushion the results but you can at least train yourself to get more accustomed to it so that next year when those 3 come all together again that "the damage" can be cushioned more (and you know your limits well as getting better at your craft by then) so that it won't hit you as bad.
