For once, I finally have good things to write about. Personal situation finally tends towards good now, my mom is slowly getting much and much better and it's such a relief.
I'm also finally out of depressingly stressful jobs and two weeks into my first job in my field as a rigging artist in a 2D cutout animation project here in Montreal. I'm so happy to finally be working full-time on an artistic project! The overall mood and stress levels are so much better, I can finally take a breather. No more dealing with people's money and problems in the telecommunications field! At least for a year until my contract ends, but by then, who kno
Gosh, I am really starting to loathe these "Oops! I'm gone!" and "Surprise! I'm back!" that life loves to throw at me.
That super duper job I was supposed to have gotten back in October turned out to be absolutely nothing that I was told in the interview. Things got busy fast, I was doing a lot of positions at the same time (and all had nothing with what I was hired) and frustration was piling up as well as fatigue since, well, I was doing like 4-5 people's work. I still didn't have a home for myself as my actual roomate turned more and more asocial, restricting visits from my friends and family and just generaly making me fee
Finally! A few prayers have been heard, and I managed to get a job offer that is pretty sweet. Flexible and less packed with stress, my boss is totally a-ok with me managing my hours as I see fit, cutting here and there if I need to and drawing at work if it's a dead time. Wonderful! Plus, some of my task should include some graphical design and book editing, so it'll be creative without being drawing per se, which should help keep my creativity muscle in shape without driving me away from the computer once I get home, as I've seen some artist friends experience when their day job requires them to draw. I hope this change will prove as fruitf
Ok, gratuitous geek attack here : Zomg, am I the only one around here so hung up on Shingeki no Kyojin? It had been a while since I got so hooked on something. That blissfully wonderful anime is giving me shivers, and dang, I'm the kind of person that reaaaaaaally prefers manga over anime, so this is quite something for me! That soundtrack! These colors! These moves!
Might even be enough to spark a fanart project or two! :la:
So, after a three quarter century (I so never exaggerate!) I finally pay my respects to this dear gallery of mine.
Life has been eventful, as you could guess by the sudden silence. Too much to tell, but to give you an idea, here's a recent one: I managed to badly sprain my ankle the day of my parent's wedding anniversary, which was also the day my dear friend ~KiraMizuno (https://www.deviantart.com/kiramizuno) arrived for a two weeks visit after being gone back to France for, what, almost four years now?
She hauled my sorry bottom the the Otakuthon with her, taking care of me all the way with two of my other friends, and because of her I got to meet a few people I had been g
