My Bio

Okay, first you thing you should know about me is that writing is a first and foremost favorite thing to do. Heck, I was writing before I could even write.

Instead, I usually used pictures I drew myself to tell the stories I wanted to tell.

Used to to do that often, in fact, to the point I did little else years and years ago. But, while my skills improved for awhile, that eventually kind of fizzled, and I couldn't get those art skills to improve any more. Frustrated, and knowing that my current level of artwork wasn't going to be of use as anything more than a mere on-the-side hobby that was extremely limited, I all but gave it up.

Thankfully, I have rediscovered this almost lost skill, and have gotten it to progress forward again. It's still not where I'd like it (the art you other users produce usually trample mine) but it's growing and is now at levels I'm growing fairly proud of, even if there's plenty more still to learn.

My hope by choosing to make use of this account on deviantART is to hopefully learn new tricks and progress that skill even further than where it stands now, and eventually put that skill to use on various serious art-related projects. Maybe a graphic novel-type thing...we'll see.

I would've done this sooner, but I've been swamped at work the past few days, was in a fender-bender Monday morning (only superficial damage thankfully), and I'll spare repeating to you some of the headlines going around the news channels as of late. Sufficeth to say, I haven't had that much free time this week. :roll: But rest assured, what free time I have had has been largely spent working on my usual array of projects, just haven't had anything ready for posting yet. I do have plans for some of what I want to shoot for and accomplish throughout this new year, though. Still working out some of the whats and hows, so I won't get into the details right now, but expect it to mostly involve the usual array of projects I've been working on as of late: Changelings, Project: Strangers, Foster Griffon, and of course, Super Pup. I know on that last one that I say that every year, but that doesn't mean one can't hope this is actually the year where I make good on that for a

Last journal I mentioned myself and several family members being ill with COVID-19 or what was highly likely to be COVID. (Link) Mostly to reassure those who kindly showed their support, I'm reporting back now to convey that all affected have since recovered from said COVID and have thus far shown no lingering side-effects from the experience. I myself, having also met the required quarantining restrictions that come from such an infection, have recently been able to return to working my usual job and have done so without issue. So all has become well here. :) That said, having actually experienced the disease, I can assure others who are still more skeptical about it that COVID is definitely not something to underestimate. You hear most people liken it to the common flu, and as it does bear some similar symptoms to the flu, I can see where that argument comes from, BUT I would still sooner compare it to being like bronchitis instead, which isn't something quite so simple to shrug

*sing-song* For my thirty-first birthday, 2020 gave to me... COVID-19! ...or at least, pretty darn reasonably sure it's COVID--haven't been formally tested, but the blasted disease has been confirmed to be going around to rest of my immediate family, and as I like my family and interact with them closely enough that I had already been self-quarantining as a precaution once word got out that they definitely had it, and all of my symptoms match up with it to a T...probably don't even need that test now. :roll: Anyway, before anybody gets too alarmed, me and the rest of my family have been dealing with it fine, and--hopefully not jinxing it by saying this--the worst of it seems to already be over. But yeah, it's been an interesting past couple of weeks for me. Hopefully all of you have been having a better time than I have. Be smart and social distance, wear the face masks when out in public, etc. :)
