Long time no update and truth be told, I don't know how much longer I'm going to keep coming back to DA at all. The site isn't really what it used to be, so this may be the year I finally give up on it and switch over to using Twitter and tumblr exclusively to post any art I do (especially now that I've cracked my art block and am cranking out work steadily again).

Thanks, all, and take care!
...I have got to update this damn thing more often.
Okay, so...quick update. I'm currently in full on work mode, pushing hard to get through as much art as possible before Izumicon, which starts the 1st of November this year in Oklahoma City. As usual, I'll be in Artist Alley, selling prints, badges and doing commissions. My fiance and I also finally got a button maker recently, so we'll have buttons to sell this year, as well!
As of right now, I'm working on three new pieces for the convention. All of them are intended to be over-sized 11x17" prints (though I'll make them available as regular 8.5x11" prints as well). I've got one of S
A fair amount's happened since my last journal entry. Let's see how quickly I can sum it all up...
We finally had to put our oldest guinea pig, Sander, to sleep back in mid-May. After he spent nine months and several vet visits battling a re-occurring lesion on his side and growing weaker the longer the fight was drawn out, I made the decision to let him go. He was seven and a half years old. Then, a month later, we brought two little guinea pig girls into our home to keep our remaining older pig company. We named them Makani and Nalukea, and they are now sharing the big ten square foot C&C cage with old Chiridee. The youngsters ar
In a few days, it is going to be a relatively normal day...for most. But not for you. For on that day...it will be a good day to revel in the moment that you were cast down upon this Earth, summoned and placed here by the mighty Odin to share your talents and your creativity with all. Let thee rejoice and enjoy this time, and know you are wished a Happy Birthday! May many more follow!
Also, Odin sends cake, blessed by King Kong and delivered by Godzilla!
A few days from today, the history books show an entry. An entry of mystery, and portent, as the great powers came down upon the Earth, and, in accordance with the wishes of the mighty King Kong, granted the world a boon. That boon was you. And lo, let it be said to all that you are to be wished a Happy Birthday upon that day, with the most excellent and amazing of cakes to partake in!
History records that, just days from now, a tremendous upheaval took place as the ground cracked and broke apart, tornadoes spun counter to their nature, and even Godzilla bowed as you appeared upon the Earth to grace us with your art. And so it is wished upon you to have a Happy Birthday on that day....and a most excellent cake.
