Jesus H. Christ on a bicycle, where to begin... For starters, I have officially graduated from MIAD! Technically I still have to take one last class during the summer, but aside from that I have completed college! Which means that since the last update where I said things were winding down turned out to be a big fat lie... So uh, sorry about that!

ALSO, I’m in the process of moving out of my apartment, so that has also eaten up a crap ton of my time. Hopefully, and the key word is hopefully, I’ll be back up and running after next week, but I plan on keeping you guys posted either way! So once again, thank you so much for your guy’s patience! It really means a lot to me! And thats pretty much it in regards to my life right now...

OH, and about the art trades and commissions; I will get those either done or at the very least started by next week. Saying that though, commissions are hereby closed until I can get my current work load done. I know that was probably assumed due to the lack of activity, but I figured it’d be best to make it official.
SO YEAH! I'm not dead! Senior year is finally wrapping up for me! I still have a LOT of things to take care of, like final assignments and getting ready to move, BUT I should be back to my regular schedule soon enough! ALSO, MAJOR THANK YOU to all you guys for your continued patience and support! It sincerely means the world to me, and I don't know where I'd be without you guys!

In brief, things are FINALLY slowing down, and more art will come sooner than later! :D

... I'm still working on them, it's just taking me a hell of a lot longer than I anticipated! Senior thesis work has a way of eating up your time. Anywho, I apologize for the delays! D:

Yes indeed! I am finally getting off my rump and I am working on a reboot of my comic series, The Skull! Each page will be posted weekly on here, tapas, twitter, imgur, and maybe even instagram. BUT if you want early access to the next page, then feel free to support the Pateron account for the series!


The comic itself will be used as my thesis for my senior year at MIAD (Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design), but I do plan on continuing the comic after that! The money itself, if I actually make any, will be used for printing expenses, creating the thesis space itself, as well as other expenses! So uh, yeah! That's pretty much it!

Remember that whole debacle about Tumblr less than a month ago that pretty much nuked several people's accounts? Turns out mine was one of the casualties, which pretty much sucks. It especially sucks since I have used that account since 2012, meaning a little more than six year's worth of stuff is pretty much dead and gone. It also sucks because I sincerely didn't realize my account was basically dead up until a few hours ago, so now I feel like a dunce for not realizing it sooner. In short, R.I.P my Tumblr account, 2012-2018.

HOWEVER, all is not lost since there are a plethora of other places where I can post my stuff, such as here, and my Twitter and Instagram! So if you wanna keep track of my social media stuff and see me post things from time to time, I highly recommend following me on those platforms!



I was planning on using Tumblr to host a certain comic project I'm working on, but now I'm not so sure if that's a good idea or not. So if you guys have any ideas on alternatives, I am more than open to idea.

So uh, I've finished my fall semester of my senior year of college. After that, I spent a week doing nothing but recharging my metaphorical batteries, and the week after that celebrating X-mas and spending time with my family. I have something fairly major in the works, but I don't wanna say anything yet just so I don't jinx it. Let's just say it will be a way for me to get a little extra help with my thesis project. Overall, I am still alive and kicking, and I thank you guys for your patience!

Welp, I think I'm finally over my artistic slump finally. I've already got two weeks of senior fall semester under my belt, and I've been doing a heck of a lot of planning on future projects. Now this doesn't mean I've come back 100% though, since my attention will be strictly concentrating on school. I also have two commission orders left to complete, so until I get those finished commissions are still closed. Also, as a warning, even though I will be publishing stuff here on dA, I might be plugging the old twitter/facebook/tumblr accounts on pretty much anything I post from here on out, just for the sake of getting a bit more exposure on those sites. I also have a lot of projects planned that I certainly think you guys will enjoy, so here's hoping the execution of those will be satisfactory! In brief, I am back!

Life just handed me a bunch of crap that I'm having trouble dealing with. And that's on top of all of the other stuff I already have on my plate. I don't know when I'll be back, but it probably won't be until the end of summer. If you've commissioned me and don't want to wait that long, feel free to let me know, and I'll be more than happy to send a refund your way. Good luck to you guys.
I want to thank everyone for all the birthday messages sent my way! You guys are sincerely the best! I would also like to give a major thanks to Void-Wolf for the core membership, as well as my two buds s0s2 and TheArgoNinja for the pictures they made me! I had an absolutely lovely birthday and all of you made it that much more enjoyable! :D

So my good friend, TaiOshiro needs a bit of help acquiring some funds, and she's offering $10 bust commissions for it. More precise info can be found here Asking For Help (Update2 - Emergency Commissions)

If you guys can help her out, even just by spreading the word about this, that would be greatly appreciated! She makes awesome artwork to boot!
So my friend, TentaclePervert is now accepting sketch commissions so she can get a bit more income flowing her way. For more info about prices and all that, feel free to read her journal entry about it! Sketch Commissions OPEN: Help me save up for Con!
So two of my really good friends are in a hell of a rough spot right now, and they need all the help they can get. www.youcaring.com/jennifercren… This pretty much explains what exactly is going on with their situation, and any amount of money donated to them would be greatly appreciated!
Welp, 2017 is dead and gone, and now it's 2018. My new years resolution is to eat three pickled eggs at some point. Still, hope you guys have a good new year! :D

Figured its been awhile since I've given an update on my life, so here's the main thing... School is keeping me pretty dang busy, and in fact my first junior semester is wrapping up on the 15th of December. So until then, I'm still gonna be pretty busy with assignments and projects and all that. I have a fairly large back log of stuff that I owe people, so until I can get those finished and sent to people, commissions are closed until further notice, just so that my pile of work doesn't add up. Also, I really wanna thank you guys for being so patient with me! I really wanna get some more work out and completed, but school definitely has to come first whether I like it or not. Either way, I'm still kicking. All is good, albeit a bit more hectic than I am used to! ^^;
