Journal Entry: Thu Feb 16, 2017, 8:35 AM






Well, I was going to write a new journal about the death of my nearly 7-year-old laptop, Pickles, but I recently got news that my ball python, Ozy (usually known simply and lovingly as Snake), passed away late last year :(  I have been worried about him a lot over the past year, since I had to move away to the UK again and leave him behind in Canada with my in-laws, so in a way it wasn't exactly a shock, but I still feel rather terrible about him - he was pretty young for a snake still, only 6, and he had the sweetest, chillest, most placid demeanour I could have ever asked for.  I'll miss you, Snake.  Fission Mailed :(

In non-pet-related news, yes, my laptop was nearly seven years old, and after its optical drive and a number of its keys on its keyboard all broke, its fan crapped out and it started repeatedly overheating, its plug developed a worrisome sparking habit, and finally it started crashing and failing to reboot for no apparent reason, Pickles has finally been retired.  It's been a stressful month trying to work out the bugs, but there was just no saving it, and I've had to resort to getting a new laptop on a budget - it's nice enough, although not as top-of-the-line as Pickles was in his day, but at least I can keep working and I backed up most everything beforehand.  I DID intend to open for some freelance commissions this month, but problems with my laptop resulted in me really not having the time anymore.  Sorry guys!

God, what else is new?  Same old, same old.  Husband's still working on his PhD thesis which is coming along well.  Harborne is extremely nice to live in, so much nicer than Bearwood, and our room mates are great, and nerdy enough that we all get together for Magic games every other night or so.  We miss our friends back in Canada, but we still manage to Skype once in a while and get a few more sessions in for our ancient D&D campaign that we're desperately trying to keep going despite it all.  I'm still plugging along on Endless Realms work, but it seems the development team is going into a bit of a review phase and so I might have a bit less to do coming up - I'll try to give people a head's up if I think I'll be opening for commissions!

Anyway, I think that's all for now.  Sigh.

I'm 33 years old, happily married, with a B.Sc in animal biology. I'm an illustrator who prefers work with animal and/or fantasy elements - I use primarily digital media but also some traditional, and focus on realistic and semi-realistic paintings as well as a few varieties of lineart-based art. I largely worked freelance, but now am the lead artist for Endless Realms, a D&D-like pen and paper RPG currently in development.

As for hobbies, I am a huge music enthusiast. I am a classically trained pianist and aspiring teacher, although recent and not-so-recent life events have caused me to fall tragically out of practice. I love listening to music and almost always enjoy finding new and unusual instruments, songs, genres and artists - I collect music not just of my own tastes, but also work that I find noteworthy, unique or extraordinarily different, and I'd like to think I have at least one or two examples of any major musical genre represented in my collection.

I also love food - trying new things and appreciating the foods I like is a simple undeniable pleasure for me. I never really cooked much when I was young, but have since really grown to enjoy it. Like my musical tastes, I potentially like just about anything - it all depends on how it's done.

I'm also pretty clearly a nerd. Besides generally enjoying things like science and philosophy (and being a huge music nerd, as previously mentioned), I love good science fiction, fantasy, and character/world-building, and enthusiastically but infrequently get the chance to practice archery and poi. I also enjoy a number of games, from video games to tabletop to cards to PnP RPGs, but I grew up primarily with video games - favourites include the old X-Wing/TIE Fighter series, RPGs like Suikoden, ChronoTrigger and Super Mario RPG, stealth games like Metal Gear Solid, and music games like DDR, Guitar Hero, Osu and Audiosurf.

I also theoretically enjoy writing, although I have much more of a love/hate relationship with it. While I've never quite gotten the hang of creating good narrative flow, I do enjoy world building and have created an extensive universe called The Tripartitus.

I'm glad I've found you on dA! I think I've seen advertises of your hoodies and so on, but never really knew who is the artist. Coincidence that I found you? Maybe, but nonetheless I'm happy I can see more of your artworks <3
Keep it up, cheers!

Heh, since you seem to enjoy them, what do you think I should do for my next hoodie design? ;)

I really like minimalistic style, but I guess it's not your thing. What about Micro / CloseUp drawings, maybe an eye, paw, or something not that hackneyed, like dragons scales? Leaving it for your imagination. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think there's lack of those kinds of artworks. But still, you should do what you feel the best - so far you're doing great, and I'm just a random watcher :)
Have a nice day, Jen :) and thank you for the reply. I find it uncommon for huge artists to answer their fans, I feel kinda surprised, of course in good meaning of that word :)

Yeah, I rather like some minimalist stuff, too!  Just not my forte I'm afraid ;P

Macros are always fun, although I'm not sure if my art director will agree!  Could ask, though :)

And yeah, I always try to respond :b  Just seems polite, really :3  

Thanks a lot!  Cheers :D
