Man, it's been so long, everyone! How have you all been?
Anywho, I really wanted to address a few things in this journal, so please bear with me for a moment.
  • To all the new watchers, hello there and thank you so much for thinking my art is worth keeping up with!
    • I try to thank everyone one by one, but there were A LOT of messages to filter through. I'm gonna keep working on it, but here's a thank you as of right now.
  • To all of the people who have been patiently keeping up with me over all these years of me being basically absent, thank you so much for sticking with me even though I haven't been around as much as I was like 5+ years ago. Let's catch up some time!
  • Real nice news for some people: I had been working a second job as a contractor for quite awhile, but found out the jobs is over, so I can finally come back to working on art and commissions.
  • I actually have not been on here except to log on about once or twice every couple of months to upload bulk art of what I'm able to work on in my free time and use the scheduler to schedule them to go up.
    • When I reply to notes/comments has been the only time I've actually been here for about the last 3 years or so.
  • To those of you who were wanting to commission me, thank you for being patient and dealing with my sporadic responses as I only really was able to get on here when uploading masses of art to my st.ash and then scheduling them to go up at later dates. I will try to respond in a quicker, more orderly fashion. I will get a new list up and running with previous commissions added to the new ones I plan on taking as well as an updated journal to showcase my new prices and ToS I've been working to establish.
    • However, to those of you who assumed that I should put my life on hold for you and spammed and harassed me through my notes and email being extremely rude as I tried to square my life away, I honestly don't want to work with you. I'm going to put people who were kind, patient, and understanding at the forefront of who I'm going to work with when commissions reopen.
  • To those few I had art trades and kiribans with, trust me--I have not forgotten. I have a few I have sketched/inked and will hopefully get those going as well now that I can dedicate more time to art.
I don't know what else to say other than "Hi, guys!" and that I'm looking forward to trying to be here more and interact with you all more. I really miss the heyday of 2012 when I was here every day, I submitted so much art and got to work on so much art, and even streamed multiple times a week. I'm sad those golden days are gone, but I want to be a better artist and better person here.

If there's anything else at all you'd like to talk to me or ask me about, please, please, PLEASE reply to this journal or comment on my main wall on my page. I have WAY too many notes to go through as is. Like, an obscene amount. I'm so sorry again that I haven't been able to reply to all of them/keep up with comments and replies. I'ma try to be better, but please be understanding <3 <3 <3

Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART


Omg. Hi. I will continue to work through comments/replies/faves/watches soon. Sorry note senders--it will be a bit before I get to y'all. It will also be a bit before I schedule a bunch of art to go up again; sorry for letting my scheduler lapse. Just wanted to mass say "Hi," before having to back out for a bit again. Gotta bunch of rad art coming up, so hope you hang around to see 'em when they finally show up! <:
I know I thanked y'all individually already, but just wanted to say it again--thank you so much to everyone who took the time to wish me a happy birthday last Friday! Means a lot, especially since I just hit the big 3-0 on my end. I bought another pinball table as a present to myself after everything that happened during my birthday week (if you follow me on Twitter, you probably saw the stuff going down lmao)

Also, sorry for the delay in responses; I accidentally put dA in Eclipse mode again and kept getting lost and being like "What the hel-- Where am I-- What is this?!" till I could get it back to legacy orz
If you play, let's be friends on Pokemon Go!

Attempting to force myself to draw everyday for Inktober this year, so that I'll finally be more active and then can knock out current commissions to star the new ones I have so many messages about <3 Also, someday soon, I will dedicate some time to announcing some stuff here orz. Thank you for your patience and sticking around with me, guys.
Hey guys! Sorry I haven't been around much (all of my art is on an upload schedule so I don't have to worry about it atm) but I'm going to try to be back more often again! (work permitting)
Just wanted to give a heads up that a couple journals are coming your way (one celebrating... anniversaries? Maybe even a contest?!) and that I will try to get back with everyone who's commented/watched/noted me in the past couple months *internally screams at the amount of notifications/notes*
