Time flies when you're drawing hot demons I guess--I drew this last February to commemorate the third anniversary of my webcomic's launch.

That's Lemme Laviolette, the arguably main character of Job Satisfaction. They work as the assistant of a freelance demon summoner, so like, typical slice of life comic. They're nonbinary and use they/them pronouns.

You can read the comic HERE -->…
It's pretty good if I do say so my(completely unbiased)self.
Pride 2017
Somethin I whipped up for pride a couple of years ago, the two nonbinary leads of my webcomic having a summer relax.

I... exist! Usually on Tumblr, but what the heck, DA, you never done me wrong (far as I remember). I miss comments. So I'm making the perennial attempt to be more active here again, and maybe this time it'll take.
How the heck is everyone? You're still there, right?

I'm doing a webcomic now (since almost a year ago, actually). I don't plan to flood my gallery with every page, but you can read it on Tumblr here:… (And hopefully on its own actual site in the future.)
It's a slice-of-life modern fantasy(/horror/occult?) thing about hot demons and not being normal. Just hit twenty pages! (I kind of moved across the country and experienced a computer death over the last year, so uh, updates were slow.)

Ok, I absolutely ADORE your eyeball plants, my goodness gracious. I went to your Etsy store and just looked through the 'Sold' section to check them out, and they are GORGEOUS! Do you plan on making any more of them, or you finished for the moment? If so, I would be most interested in adopting such a remarkable oddity into the family of shapes and eyes over here.

((And really...beautiful job. I love how they all look--Euphemia, Audrey, Abigail, Camilla, Annalise and Oliver. (And all the rest, naturally~) They are beautifully crafted and have such eccentric, mysterious appearances with so much personality. It's marvelous.))

Oh wow, incidentally I was checking DA for the first time in several millenia!
Finally got back to you on Etsy, but in case others are wondering: I am (slowly) making new plants and (rarely) restocking, but not currently open for custom work. 
And thank you so much! I love making them, it just takes an age.

I saw--and responded! :D You are so, so welcome; your delicate design for these plants is beautiful, ans I just had to tell ya!
((Also, no worries, I totally understand.))
