Hey everyone,

Long time no update. Since graduation, I've been applying non-stop to any storyboard positions I could find. Big studios, little studios; domestic and abroad. Eventually, I snagged a storyboard test with Powerhouse Animation for an in-house position. I made it into the interview process but alas, I didn't get the in-house gig; however, they still wanted to keep me around as a freelancer and contracted me in mid-September. 

It was a surreal feeling wrapping my head around the fact I was doing art professionally, I hit a lot of snags in the first sequence I did and felt real anxious about it. Eventually, it subsided and I learned from my mistakes. I think the biggest struggle was adapting to the style but it's clear to me that I need to do more life drawing and focus on faces. It's really true that despite all training that prepares for the job, the real experience is a whole different ball game and you're often caught off guard. But it's okay to be vulnerable, as long as you're willing to adapt to the changes.

On the comic side, tumblr is imploding for most people but I'm still gonna be there to manage my comic and other sources. The change is dramatic, but change isn't? I also posted the comic on Tapastic and it's just as a big of a hit as it was on Tumblr so I'm not worried about the shortage of readers. Just need to get on with posting new pages for people to read which I hope to post a new "episode" or (two if I'm real ambitious) by the comic's anniversary (Jan. 16). I'm already in the works of the second chapter while drawing layouts for the first chapter. SLOW and STEADY; Slowly but surely, it's getting done.

I got another comic idea cooking in my head that I want to start soon too but yeah, that's pretty much it and I'll say more when the time comes.
  • Watching: Craig of the Creek (go watch it, it's darling)
  • Playing: Lots of Otome games
