Oh boy ohboy ohboyohboy

Well, I haven't updated this thing in a while. Figured I'd hop back on here, despite how much different things around here are compared to when I joined 10 years back. 10 years?! Jeeeeez.

Yeah, I feel like posting updates and showing any activity is akin to pissing in an ocean of piss, but I also need to up my activity by a lot. I'm considering a username change, but since I've been looking back at my old work it's pretty sentimental for me. I've fallen into the trap of dropping animu-style because it was beaten out of me throughout my academic career, but I was also told that it's fine to pick up that type of stylized work once I have a firm grasp of the basics of drawing. Hundreds of hours later I feel like I have that, but even my non-cartoonish work looks like manga to most people. My gut reaction is to take offense to it, but since I'm 22 now it comes off more like an observation than someone passing judgment. I'm still trying to figure out what my own personal style is, but I also do all sorts of illustration and design at this point that I can "wear many hats," as every job description/requirement would like me to have, lol.
I've been thinking about Star Labyrinth, and my emotional attachments to characters like Samal. I think it deserves a reboot, but I would have to remix the story from the ground up. Looking back at some of my older work and concepts, my ideas were pretty consistent and also not as crazy or immature as I thought they were! We'll see.

So I finally have my BFA from Pratt, and I moved from NYC to the island very recently to live with my boyfriend and our two collective cats. The past year has been a little nuts! My band has covered a lot of ground and we've played at a ton of venues across NY (we even played a gig up in Saratoga Springs recently!). We've released our EP, Devil May Care, and I designed a line of merchandise. I also continue to create show posters and social media graphics. We did have some issues with a lineup change, but we feel pretty comfortable performing as a threesome at this point. I've taken over on lead guitar and I sing backup and lead vocals.
The year has also been marred with crippling financial problems caused by a shit job and some poor choices. I ended up starving myself for food and energy, wound up in the hospital for seizures and came out with an epilepsy diagnosis. Which was okay I guess, since I suspected I had it for most of my life anyway after having so many partial seizures. It's being controlled with medication (and knowledge of the stress/lack of sleep and food triggers), which has also helped my depression a lot. 
Despite the struggle with attempting to find work, I've been in high-ish spirits. I'm at a point where I can't afford to feel down in the dumps, really.

I ALSO HAVE A CUTE KITTY. Found her in the stairwell of my apartment all alone, took her to the vet, and spent the past almost-a-year growing her. She's getting a little fat but I'm gonna work on reducing her food intake and playing with the laser pointer a little more. Her name is Winnie. :D
