Long time no update but I figure, maybe just using deviantART once in a while to shill my things isn't a bad idea? In case you haven't found out, I'm the co-mod of a fandom zine for Ririka SOS, a series near and dear to my heart. Here's the general idea behind the zine, which is meant to celebrate 25 years of the show:
Unlike most zines which concentrate on the visual illustrative aspect, we aim to create a zine where ALL media is welcome. Besides illustrations, this includes, but not limited to: writing, cosplay, comics, essays, etc. We want to be able to create a comprehensive product showing off the small but dedicated Ririka SOS fandom - and we believe that showcasing all the different talents from each person or group is a fantastic way to celebrate the series' silver jubilee! If there is a medium you work in that may not be conventional for the traditional zine format, do not hesitate to reach out to us!
We were on a great schedule to release this by July 7th, the date of the show's debut, but uh a LOT of things happened besides the pandemic and thus, we couldn't release on that day. But we still want to celebrate it and better late than never. We had a robust interest check and right now we are looking for contributors! We want writers, artists, cosplayers to do anything and everything they ever wanted to do, if they're fans of the show/manga/everything!
So firstly, here are the links you can check us out at:

Sooooo yeah. That's about it. Apps close on August 22th, enough time to get 'em in. If you have any questions, feel free to let me know but otherwise, how's everyone doing in the apocalypse?
Trying out how to keep up with things on here work now by using Eclipse instead of the old switching option, since Eclipse will be permanent soon...and wow, incredible how some things can be way easier to do (I can upload images on here without a weird workaround, being an un-paying member of DA), and yet, most of it is borked XD I do like how the buttons work.
Anyway, I'm doing a livestream this Saturday on Twitch! I've mentioned most everywhere it'll either be an inking and/or coloring stream, but it really depends how I feel by then, haha. I'll be streaming at 3PM Central Standard TIME (CST) in the US, and I'll run...idk whenever how long I'll run.
You can go and follow me so you can be notified of when I go live!
Hope y'all are taking care during these times!
