I finally got DSL at home!!! So now maybe I can get back to doing a little socializing around these parts. (^o^) For those who haven't been keeping up with my doings, outside of dA, it might interest you to know that I've been furiously writing Western Noir novels. I've published the first drafts of said novels on my website at KaiStarr.com, and now also have two of the "Desperado" series novels for sale in print edition! Check those out on the bookstore page. I hope to get back to making more art, soon, and to start myself off, I've just added a new sketch of the star of my "Desperado" series, Joshua Love, in which he shows off his fast-dr

Hrm... Well, I'm not getting anywhere with art, lately. I seem to be in music mode! I'm certainly writing and playing a lot of it, which is good. I went for far too long without my music! Anyway, my latest deviation is a song for my girlfriend. I'll see what I can do about getting some more art finished, pretty soon. I've just not been able to swing the lever back over to drawing mode, but I will, eventually. (^-^)

Guh... I know; I know... I'm slow as freakin' frozen molasses. But really, when your life is as full of utter chaos as mine is, it gets kinda hard to find relatively stress-free time and enough working brain and steady hands to do good artwork. I'm not trying to make excuses, though. I just want everyone to know I AM still making some kind of effort, for what it's worth. I'm still writing, since I can do that even when I'm insane, apparently. I've done quite a lot of that, since my last update here and on the comics site, including more script for the story and a whooooooole buncha songs for same. I've also been attempting to get all the mus

hey funky munkey, you still around this place?
Heya! I'm kinda sorta still around. Right now, though, I am stuck with a 26k internet connection, so it's really hard for me to make it to all the sites I used to frequent! I'm hoping to get broadband, sometime in the next few months. Then I can be Mr. Social, again. :P I do miss looking at everyone's art and talking to folks!
hehe well, at least you are still around. Glad to see that. Any new work you post, I will be keeping an eye open as I do like your style
I do have a new piece, if I can manage to get it uploaded! :P

Hello :) Long time no chat! How is life? How goes the music?
Hiya! Life is kinda...meh. Music is on hold, until I can get a place set up for recording again. Got to get that done, soon, though! I want to do another album for RPM Challenge, this year! How are thing with you?
Aww, sorry to hear life is being meh :( :hug:. Are you not doing music-for-fun while you wait for a chance to record? What's RPM Challenge?

My life is hectic. I'm working too hard, studying to hard, sleeping too little, and missing my ex-boyfriend. But apart from that, it's good :) I'm playing much music, drawing too little, and I got to see Natalie Klien play 'cello on Wednesday, which was awesome!
