But there's been art! Lots of figure skating art! Yeah!
If you're not into Yuri on Ice, though... sorry. Can't help ya.
And I'm not really sorry.
The main point of this post is to remind anybody who still watches me here on dA that I have a tumblr account where I am far more active. It's right here, also as KrisCynical.
I'm going to be uploading the old InuKag artwork that dA axed all those years ago due to their asinine "epilogues don't count" witch hunt policy very soon. So if you're not into Yuri on Ice -- which is what my blog is primarily about along with some politics -- there will be some Inuyasha thrown in there as well. All of my artwork is tagged with "art post" and all Inuyasha posts are tagged with, of course, "Inuyasha". If you only want to see the Inu stuff you can blacklist "yoi" because that's what I tag every Yuri on Ice post with without fail.
Updates-wise, after seven long years I finally managed to beat my depression this past fall. I no longer consider myself depressed, and the two major factors behind that are 1) finally getting my own studio space and 2) Yuri on Ice. My studio did most of the job, Yuri on Ice just finished pulling me the rest of the way out of that hole.
My grandmother's old bedroom across the hallway from mine is now my studio, and I love it to bits. It's my sanctuary. The walls are teal with a dual toned purple accent wall, and those walls are covered in the Aladdin fine art that I've accumulated for years but had nowhere to safely display. I also have a display cabinet with all of my favorite Aladdin sculptures, glass, and jewelry. The finishing touch is a 40" TV with every gaming system I own hooked into it at once via an 8 port switch box so I can relive my retro gaming childhood any time I please (although lately all of my free time has been consumed by Breath of the Wild dear God that game is absolute perfection that I have been waiting for since I was 14 and first popped Ocarina of Time into my 64 in 1998).
Having a place to escape to where I can work without anybody else bothering me has been wonderful for my mental and emotional well-being, and my productivity has skyrocketed back to near what it was right after I graduated from Ringling ten years ago (yes, it has actually been THAT long... I am getting old). I spend the majority of my day in here and I love it.
Also as one last note: I will be at A-Kon this year as always. This year we're moving to the Ft. Worth Convention Center and as far as I know we're actually going to be in the same room as the dealers, which I think is awesome. Now that I'm no longer depressed I'm planning on having several new prints this year so if you're going to be there, please drop by and say hello!
So... yeah. I think that's about it.
