Woaaaahhhh... I'm alive!

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 1, 2014, 12:42 AM
Hey dudes and dudettes! It's been a long time, no?

So a little bit of an update journal, seeing as I've been pretty quiet and on a little bit of a hiatus from my computer.

1.) I got a puppy!

Holy hell, he's a wonderful little monster and is now nearly four months old. He is a Boston Terrier / French Bulldog mix and really the light of my life, I've never had the chance to bond with an animal quite like this before and it's really gotten me moving around much more. As a result I've lost nearly 30 pounds and I feel physically better then I have in a long time. My twitter has a lot of pictures of him if you're an uber nosey person like I am ( ). His name is "Belmont". Yes, that Belmont.

2.) I'm helping to run a convention!

I'm Artist Alley head at Senshicon a neat anime/game/comic convention here in Alaska. I'm also the resident graphic designer, flyer wizard, contest holder, banner maker and... well... lots of other things haha. Also working closely with our PR & Exhibitor Coordinator. It's going to be a good year I think, with so many new events going on this year. Alongside that, I'm trying to get ready to sell my own wares this year as well (with much needed help from family).

3.) Speaking of - Art Gallery Anyone?

So, one of the events we are holding this year is an art gallery. A free gallery, where artists from anywhere (in and out of Alaska) can submit artworks to have their stuff showcased on a big section of our Exhibitors hall. The art will be seen by 3,000 people over two days (September 27th and 28th) if any of you amazing folks would like to submit some work to this gallery then please, please email me at --> . And please know that this is under donation, so your prints will be donated to the convention for galleries in the future. Your name, website, and info will be posted at the bottom of the image on a note card for people to see as well. These will not be sold, or auctioned or used for profit as it's a no-pressure free gallery simply for fun.

4.) Kidney Stuff!

I've been in limbo for about a year now, hoping to get back on active list and I am so close I can taste it. I've been pressuring my coordinator to put me back on since I'm beyond all my infections and I'm doing -really- well right now, it's time to get that darn transplant. I'm really optimistic that I'll be close to getting it this year finally. There's a lot I want to do with my life, so I'm gonna just keep on pushing!


So did I leave anything out? I sure hope not. Busy busy busy bee I am, I hope to get back to drawing again soon... as soon as Belmont lets me, that is. =|

I'm so freakin' excited for you! Sounds like everything is looking up!
I'm really super excited to come up and have a booth anddd I'm working on a few fun possible prints for the art gallery!
Senshicon really sounds like it's going to be an awesome year! The heads of everything seem to have changed a lot since the last time I went in 2011. I'm really looking forward to it! <3

30 pounds!! OMG.. your BMI has got to be in or close to the range you were needing, huh? Belmont is like a child, so yes.. I can see him demanding a lot of attention from his Mama! Katie would agree, her little one should be quote a handful now. Wish i could see a pic, but I do understand Katie's outlook on that. Lots going on to keep you active and focused which is a great thing. It's been weeks since I checked in here on DA and look what I find! Gotta pay more attention, I do.

Much love and hugs....and BTW, a small package will be headed your way soon.

Yay!  I'm glad you're doing well!  I miss you!

Tissue printing technology could really kick into gear eh? Hope you manage to get back on the list soon!

Congrats on the puppy!

As an owner of three dogs and a cat, I can say I know how they steal your heart (...and time and make you move around) x3
But it's all good. I think they bring a lot into my life at least, and they keep me sane at times.
... they can also drive me up the walls with their occasional tricks! I think my highlight moment was when my youngest dog, as a puppy, woke me up by puking on the bed her own poops she had just eaten. GO DOG. This is exactly why I wanted you in my life. So I can wake up to clean shit you just ate off my bed.

Glad to hear you're active in art circles even if not online!

And fingers crossed for getting that darn transplant, it's about time!

Best of luck, let Belmont keep you active and bring you lots of love and laughs, I'll be lurking should you return online.

Now prompted to be active on Twitter again... wants puppy pictures. :ninja:

I'm glad to hear you've been doing so well, and your new puppy is so cute! XD

Good luck with the art, conventions, and most importantly that transplant. : )
RBL-M1A2Tanker Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Great to hear from ya, and hopefully the kidney thing gets done soon!

I admit I'm curious about the art gallery deal, but I'm confused about the prints part of that.  Do we need to provide you with a print, and what happens to them after that particular convention?
Utasart Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Mitch told me about the gallery at Senshi-con, but when I investigated the website it says to fill out a form that I couldn't find XD So hopefully my lazy rear will get around to emailing art to that address soon~

It's good to hear you're doing well with a new furry life addition and good luck with getting your transplant!! :D

Hey Neo!
Glad to hear you are doing better! Congrats on the convention position, and the new pup! He is adorable.
Also, it's such good news that your health is improving enough that you can get that transplant taken care of. Best of luck with a speedy and healthy recovery, when the time comes.
It'll be great to see more works from you, I've missed ya!
Brother-Tico Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Hey, good to hear you again! :D

And what a great news in number 1 and 2! Glad to hear you have a new member of the family (because pets are part of family,too) and good luck in the artist alley :)

As for number 4, I hope you get that transplant soon. And I pray for that.

And lastly, about number 3, is it only in the US or everyone around the world can participate in that art donation?
Natolii Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2014   Digital Artist
I'm glad to hear you are doing well :) Also your puppy is ADORABLE :heart:

Also: Glad to hear you're doing well, or at least better. I just wish I had art to contribute to your thing >_> Ahhh, if only...
Anoki-Doll Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
All of that sounds wonderful! Wish you the best for the rest of the year and beyond!

Your puppy is adorable! It's amazing how big of a difference in your life and mental/emotional health animals can make. When I got married in March and got back from the honeymoon I was so depressed when I was home alone on my days off. I hate my apartment too which didn't help, it's in a basement and we have no windows and it's killing me. I had a guinea pig still but it wasn't enough, in my parents house I had three shih tzus and a cat and the guinea pig, so it was a huge adjustment or me. We already planned on getting a kitten but weren't getting her until early June (have her now, yay!), and I had no idea how I was going to make myself happy. In less than a week from being home, an adorable (and very ill) stray walked into my parents' backyard and we took her in and got her healthy again. She had a uterus infection that would have killed her within a week if she hadn't gotten care immediately, so we needed each other. Now I have my two girl kitties and they got along almost immediately, the stray Maddi is like Mitzi's mom :) It's adorable. On another note, I really hope you can get your transplant soon! How long has it been that you're waiting now? Seems like it's been years to me. I'm so happy to hear your puppy has brightened up your life :)

I'm very happy to see you're doing better. Congrats on becoming apart of the Artist Alley! I really hope you get your transplant soon. *crosses fingers* Belmont is super adorable! Lady Gaga actually has the same puppy as you too! I hope things keep getting better for you.
Fluffy-Okami Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Belmont is a fantastic name, and having a pet is always a good thing!  They're good at helping lower stress levels which helps with all manner of health problems.  I wish you luck with the kidney thing, it sounds kinda scary to me.  Definitely wishing the best for you though :)
Heckfire Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'm glad to hear things are going better for you. Hopefully you'll be able to get the transplant and finally get everything back in order.
