Hey I forgot about Artslam. Where is it? Did I miss the sign up? Are my slam buddies still around?

Back on trackI'm all caught up with DA now!
I've gone through everyone's art, caught up on webcomics, and got around to uploading some of my stuff from the past year.
I think I'm ready to be an artist again.
I'm working on a really big piece right now for a gallery. One of the problems with big stuff is frames. Frames seem to come in two styles - really tacky and cheap, or terribly expensive. Recently I've just been going to pawn shops and buying someone's framed jigsaw puzzle, or crappy old poster, and throwing the content away and keeping the frame. But then you never know what size you're going to get. Last year I managed to find some Disney stand-up frame in a toy store for cheap, and I just threw away the stand and scratched off the Disney logo... Why can't there be less expensive ones?
Anyway, thanks for sticking around. If you know any good webcomics I might try reading, let me know. It's become a nightly routine before bed. . .
Am I an artist?I'm coming back. . .
I went on to DA after a year, there are over 1,000 things to look through.
Am I even an artist anymore? I started wondering about that, took up a pencil again, it's not all lost!
I think I will start uploading things here again.
Thanks for sticking with me.

1. How many stories do you have? Have you been working on them long, do you find yourself dropping older ones to work on newer ones?
I like to kill off stories and just work on one, because I tend to get overwhelmed and I really don't have a lot of free time. But I have a list of backburner things in mind... I also hate dropping things, I feel really guilty about them. So I tend not to put energy into things that I think might get dropped. But, like my Two Moons comic, there are some stories I tend to muse over from time to time and consider going back to.
2. Do you think there's such a thing as too many OCs?
That's like saying is there a such thing as being too creative.. Uhh no? I mean it's the brain going "what if!? what if?!" That's always a good thing. Being curious about other mentalities, looking at things from new perspectives, thinking about people who represent something
One month until Artslam!I know it's a month away, but I'm so ready for Artslam!
Who else is up for a whole summer of doing art?
All fun and no pressure, you just have to draw every day!
Great for bouncing around character and world-building ideas!
And an excellent way to get advice on art! Or to get that kick in the butt to actually finish something!
WebcomicsI just read a really, really good webcomic. . . Can't wait for more:
The storytelling is just art unto itself. . .
And it's creepy.... I don't want to turn off the lights!
Another friend just started a webcomic. October
The art is amazing.
In other news, I had an interesting day yesterday.
Maybe the most interesting thing was that I just happened to be taking a walk outside when suddenly the lunar eclipse started. I had no idea this was going to be happening, and it just happened to be at a time when I could see it. I went to the park to watch. I just happened to have a flashlight on me so I was able to get some moth pictures. This reminded me of one of the lessons I teach at school. "What do you carry around just in case?" Some students don't understand "just in case" so I always say, "I have an umbrella just in case it ra
Amidst ArtslamArtslam this year has been really great so far! Two more months to go!
A year ago, at the end of Artslam, I manages to draw this:
It took forever and I felt so awkward at every stage of the process.
This year I did this:
It took so much less time, and every time I felt a little less confident, someone would give me some great advice and I'd figure things out!
Does anyone else want to join the slam for July???

Artslam is coming!Artslam - the only thing that gets me off my ass and makes me do art, instead of just thinking about doing art.
Who wants to join me for one, two, or three months of art?
This year I want to work on backgrounds and my sense of color. I'm starting to realize that these things sorta go hand in hand. I can't just say - green! and make the shadows in a picture green, it has to fit in with what else is happening in the picture.

SeashellsI'm going to be posting a lot of pictures of seashells. It was a rainy day and the shells had been sitting around in their basket for too long. I took them all out and painted them. I was going for flowery patterns since it's spring and people are in to that kind of thing in the spring.
If anyone wants me to paint you a seashell, or a dozen, I think I'd charge a dollar for a black one and two dollars for a gold one, and then shipping. They're really fun to make!
Seashells are nifty. Each one is different. You can even find differences on two sides of a clam. Each pattern, whorl, color, is made by nature, with extreme precision. I love wandering on the beach finding shells.

[Design Resell and Trade Center]Decided to set up a small resell and trade center for anyone who owns a design from me! If you're interested in trading or reselling a design made by me you can fill out a form below and post it here for others to see.
As a reminder:
-you may only resell a design if you paid money for it. If you received the design as a gift or through a no-money trade, you can only trade and not resell.
-You can only resell a design for the original price you paid for or less. I will NOT be responsible for things like add-ons and extras, and YOU are responsible for getting permission from artists if you decide to add extras onto the original price.
-You can mix up your trades/resells, ex: you can ask for a mixture of art and money if the money part of the trade does not exceed the original price.
-If trading for things like art and design vouchers, the vouchers cannot exceed the original price of the design.
-art and design trades will be a decision made by both parties to be agreed upon. Both p

Lackadaisy - Card GameSome of you might remember me talking about the card game last year. My publisher only had a very small number of them in stock, but they're finally back. We made a lot more of them this time - and with new, custom dice too!
If interested, here's where to order.
Lackadaisy on Patreon

LK isn't a pedophile.SOMETHING TO NOTE: at the time of when i started writing this, the journal in question was up and on the website, but as of now it has just recently been taken down. the premise of the journal was basically calling someone out (LK) to be a pedophile. they used very poor evidence that didn't at all seem to be fact checked and the whole entire thing was just pulled out of the fucker's ass that wrote this. this entire situation is a perfect example of mob mentality and what i like to call the "Spoctor affect". if you're unfamiliar with that drama then that'll make no sense to you, but basically it means people just see some screenshots and believe them 1000% without any further personal investigation and a whole shitstorm develops because morons took shit out of context and they were too fucking stupid to actually put some thought into it before just going along with the mob. onto my defenses of LK though...
so yet again, another dumb fuck has tried to call out so
