Hi guys! I know this account (as well as other artistic endeavors of mine) has been all crickets for some time now. Hopefully that will change, but in the mean time I thought the least I could do was bump a journal entry concerning a long gone April Fools event from my front page... with some exciting news!



My baby, my blood, sweat, tears, and artwork, is officially out on the market May 1st! This has been a few years of work for me, on and off, and it's finally seeing the light of day! While I can't take credit for the writing, if you enjoy my art (and I don't think I'm being too silly in making the assumption that your reading this means you do...) please check it out! According to my friends, it's already shipping on Amazon!

Guys, I appreciate your efforts, but giving me llama badges will NOT soothe the pain that is being Edward Cullen for a day.

Thanks very much,

ST.

ETA: Wait, my llama could have a CAPE? I guess that MIGHT make things a little better. u_u I will accept your animal offerings. Thank you for your kindness.

Antagonist is going well, knock on wood, updating in the on-time window! I stopped filling in for a girl at work and thus my hours are reduced by a whopping 10, but I got an art gig that will actually pay me monies which should be starting sometime next month! I suppose I should be productive with my extra 10 hours, so I'm making one of those fancy little to-do lists.

1)Antagonist pages, of course. WOULDN'T HURT TO BUILD A BUFFER ST. A buffer, what's that? YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT. AND DON'T JUST MAKE IT AND THEN USE IT ALL UP RIGHT AWAY.
2)Converting old Antaognist pages into correct format for self-publication
3)Antagonist 5th anniversary art
4)Good Omens/ Discworld art? Maybe?
5)Other projects
6)Ask me to draw something specifically and you might just get it if I am so tickled. Seriously. Don't believe me? Ask :iconthe-jean-genie:

So guys I'm still watching :iconthereal-oct:, are you? Final round! Are you excited?! I am excited!

Also something to be excited about: Antagonist updated!!!!!!!1 The long awaited return is mostly without fanfare, but at this point it's more of a getting back to it than it is making it some big event. Anyway. You guys should check it out!

Welp, I'm out of :iconthereal-oct:! I was hoping to prove to myself that forfeits were not the only way I could go forward, but alas, :iconqueengwenevere: was victorious. D=

You should all go root for her now! While I'm sad I lost, I'm glad I lost to Gwen- I don't think I could have asked for a better opponent to beat me. She did alright by STeam, and now its time to back her going into the semi-finals!

I am already feeling the vacuum in my life that AatR left behind, but I'm going to work hard to fill it. I really hope to get back into Antagonist quickly-- K was so much fun and so easy to write for this tournament, I have to figure out how to reroute that inspiration back into his original medium. Ku, unfortunately will have to be missed for a while, I guess. It was good to have her around though- she's a subtle presence but I think I got to know her better.

Also on the docket is finding a job that pays more than 9 bucks an hour and offers more than 16 hours a week. Preferably an art-related one. If you guys have any tips or connections- I certainly won't refuse them.
