Hey all! It's been a busy couple of weeks as I try to get my life in order; to that effect, several things are happening: - I'm heading back across the country again to live with my partner (and her parents, but w/e it's a roof over my head), and help out with her business to earn a bit of income. - I've reserved my spot at Comic Con Africa; going to be selling art prints, comics, stickers, bookmarks, all that good stuff (follow my Twitter and Instagram for previews and WIPs) - I've begun psychiatric therapy; my depression is still very much a part of my life, and I'd rather it wasn't, so I'm getting professional help to sort that out. I'

Hey everyone. I know things have been a little slower this past week; I'm currently pet-sitting my friend's dogs for a few days. More Blood, Flesh and Soul pages are on the way, the storyboards are in place, thank you for your patience. However, the main reason for this journal entry is a new endeavor that I'm starting on, namely NSFW art. I've been contemplating dipping my toe into more scandalous water for a while now, and given my current financial status I need to start pursuing all possible means of promoting myself. I've already started uploading some stuff on my new twitter account ( 18+ only!) and

Hey everyone. As the title says, it's been a while since I uploaded anything here. I kind of fell off Deviant Art as I was looking for other outlets to present myself, and then I moved to a new town, kept studying, kept looking for a job, and for a while I even had a steady income. It wasn't much, I certainly wasn't living large, but I was stable for about a year and a half. Then my company downsized due to lack of contracts, and I was part of the 50% that got kicked out. It was not a good time for me. I tried to put on a brave face, for myself and my partner, but I was running out of money, our lease was coming to an end, and nothing was c

Love your MK komic !

Hope you'll finish it !!
Hey Marcus can I ask you something about your ahool character?
will you continue your MK comic ?
I have seriously been considering it lately.

I just started a new job (a proper 8-5 with a real salary) and I'm about to move into a new apartment, so I haven't had much time to work in earnest on anything official. But I have been thinking that if I get a spare moment, the MK comic would be the thing to keep me fresh and active on the drawing scene.

So, pencil in a soft "yes" for an answer.
Thank you so much for faving my Drakenguard and Fairy Tail Cross-over - 1 it means a lot to me. :floating::floating::floating:
