Hey everyone. Long time no talk. It's been 12 months since my last post here. A lot has happened, and very little has happened as well. Let me sum up.

October 2015: Started my job at the Disneyland Resort. Star Tours! Dream job attained!
November 2015: Job going well, but money issues are still weighing heavy.
December 2015: Learn that half of my financial support is disappearing. Looking at the prospect of having to leave California.
January 2016: Last month of full financial options. Give my apartment complex notice to vacate.
February 2016: Have to leave Long Beach and my dream job of working at Disney. Not a happy camper. Life goes on, though.
March 2016: Back in Utah at my parent's place. Attempting to reboot life again, but things still aren't going too well on the job front.
April 2016: More of the same. Only been interviewed at one company in the last two years: Had three rounds of interviews at a local advertising company, but after meeting with the CEO on the third round, silence. Never heard from them again.
May 2016: Decide to stop the job hunt and try going back to school. Start in the Culinary Arts program at Utah Valley.
June 2016: Survive the ServSafe® Food Protection Manager Certification exam. Ready to cook!
July 2016: Finish up prep classes before the start of cooking classes.
August 2016: Start the first cooking class, Baking and Pastry I.
September 2016: Informed by the university that my financial aid is gone. With no financial aid, school is over sooner than I hoped. Would have to come up with $10,000 out-of-pocket to finish. Not a good prospect, but, again, life must go on.
October 2016: Finish my Baking and Pastry class. Did pretty well considering. Have to drop my second block classes and stop my Culinary Arts journey.

And that brings us back to today. Almost one year to the day.

I'm back at the point in life where I'm not sure what to do again. I need to find work, but that's been a tough prospect. I'm not sure if I want to get back into the art side of things. I've had little luck there too. I dunno. Where life goes from here, I'm not sure. I'm on God's good humor now.

Like the title says, there's nothing new going on around here. Long Beach Comic Con came and went and, while it was a fun time, the end result was rather red. (as in "in the..." The con cost me over $1000 and I made less than $100...) I've come to a crossroad here and I'm not quite sure what to do. I've got an idea, but it's hard to make a choice.

I start a new job this week. For the first time in quite a while, it's not a "creative" job. It's a part-time position as an Attractions Host at the Disneyland Resort. I have to be honest. I've done something creative for my job now for almost 25 years. Quarter of a century. And I'm to not sure if there's much left that I can contribute to the creative world right now. I've been searching for a new job for almost 3 years now. In that time, I've been interviewed for positions twice. That's right. Twice. I tend to think that I'm pretty good at what I do. I'm just not sure what the world is looking for anymore. Little of anyone seems to want my skills. I know there's very little demand for my art. I got that confirmation from the con. It was really an experiment to see if there was anyone that really was interested. And I got my not-so-surprising answer there. I've had art-related things available for sale for years and haven't really sold much of anything. I think with how my creative world is going, it's time to move on to something new.

I'm coming up on my 40th birthday in a few months. The prospect of starting over in a new line of work isn't something that I'm *really* looking forward to, but it's where I find life at the moment. I can't really afford to live with my current situation. The new job will barely bring in enough to pay my rent. Having to start from the bottom and work my way back up to self-sustainability is going to be a long and painful road. I hope it won't take too long.

That said, this may very well be the last thing I post here on deviantART for a while, if ever again. Moving on is always hard. But sometimes you just have to realize when it's time. And, unfortunately, I think it's time.

To the handful of folks watching me here, have fun on your artistic ride. May you find yourself on a safe journey full of art goodness. 

We'll see you all on the other side.

News! For the first time, I'll be in the Artist Alley at the Long Beach Comic Con on September 12th and 13th. I've been meaning to do this and LBCC was a good opportunity since my move from Utah to Long Beach. It's going to be a good reason for me to kick myself in the butt and to get moving on artstuffs. I've got Foxtails, Inc. starting back up again (first new page has been drawn!) and I'm working on some pieces that should be ready for the con.

One thing that I am hoping for is some help getting prep work for the con set up. I've got a GoFundMe campaign going to help pay for some of the pre-con stuff, like marketing materials, booth banners and printing and stuff. I can get part of it ready myself, but if anyone can help chip in, that would greatly help the process. And if you can toss in $10.00 or more, I'll send you a print after the show! Any help is greatly appreciated!

You can get to the GoFundMe campaign by going to:
www.gofundme.com/tekitsuneAtLB…

Not sure what the booth number will be yet, but as soon as I know, I'll let the world know. For those that will be there, I'll see you there!

So, yesterday I turned my drawing table back into a regular flat desk. 

With all the fun health stuff I've dealt with over the last few month, I think it's time to sit back and look at the direction that my artstuff is going. I readily admit that there hasn't ever been much of a following for the art I've done over the years. I've tried a bunch of different things and nothing has ever stuck. I've tried to publicize what I do, but that never seems to get anything going. The Patreon I had going for Foxtails, Inc. was a certifiable flop (but then, I really couldn't expect anything else, knowing my track record.) I had a whole one patron, and I'm glad there was at least one person that was willing to show some support, but the cost outweighed the benefit. I've tried to get general thoughts from the world, even friends, and I've never really gotten any criticism, constructive or otherwise. Oh, people will give generic thoughts on a specific piece, but never too much that has any meat to it. Most times it feels like I'm creating in a vacuum. I just don't know. 

I wonder if I just don't have the drive to do this kind of stuff any more. I hear friends and acquaintances saying the same thing, so you just have to wonder. I guess when you put yourself out there, you're looking for SOME kind of validation, so it's hard when there isn't much that comes back.

Now that I have the aftermath of all the medical stuff, and more specifically, the bills, I really don't know where anything in life is going. 

I love art and drawing, but, for me, is it worth it anymore? Heck, even my design work seems to be going that direction. I dunno. Reflection time?

So, as I try to get back into things, I've got a new store opened on TeePublic.com. I've only got a few things there right now:

  • Happy, Go Lucky Captain Marvel
  • Ryoko Kombat (the new, revised edition)
  • Codename Rocket

I'll be adding more as time goes on, but right now, for the first 72 hours, all of those are $14.00 each! Go and grab one today!

So, life threw me for a bit of a loop here two weeks ago. Just to let the world know, artstuffs are going to be on hiatus for a while. Here's why:

It may seem like I had fallen off the face of the earth, and it wasn’t too far off from the truth. It’s taken me two weeks to finally get to a point where I could actually concentrate and sit up long enough to type something to talk about what’s happened in the last few weeks here.

For the short answer, two weeks ago I ended up in the Emergency Room at the local hospital and had been in the ICU for a week.

Now for the long answer. Three weeks ago, I had a nasty pain in my right leg. It felt like a pulled muscle or tendon. It was nasty to walk on. I had my doctor take a look at it while I was seeing him for my quarterly diabetes check. He didn’t see anything out of the ordinary, but said that if it was still bothering my in a week, to come back in. That was Tuesday, September 9th.

The pain never went away, so the following week, I was planning to see the doctor again… but life beat me to it.

It’s Monday, September 15th, around 7:45am. I’ve just dropped off my mom at work and made my way over to my office. I got out of the car and started walking toward the front of the office. About halfway there, I got extremely dizzy and short of breath, to the point where I couldn’t walk any more. I stopped, put my backpack and things on the pavement and sat down, laying on my back.

Fortunately for me, the wife of a doctor that is in the area saw me on the ground  in the parking lot and she called her husband who rushed over and called 911.

Minutes later a police car showed up and then the ambulance arrived. I remember getting into the ambulance and driving off, but after that, the next thing I remembered was waking up in the ICU.

I’m told that when they got me to the ER, the paramedics had ended up doing CPR on me for over 90 minutes. In that time, I had been in full cardiac arrest at least twice. A group of brilliant doctors had been in the ER when I came in so I have 4 doctors all working on me.

It was found that I had a blood clot in my right leg that had broken off and gone through my heart and into my lungs. It was a really bad situation.

According to their past experience, normally someone with what had happened to me would have died (and I kinda did, twice) but somehow those brilliant doctors and the ER staff performed a miracle. Most things didn’t work and they had to try what they consider a last resort. They ended up using a drug on me that the doctors said they had only seen work one other time in all the years that they had been practicing doctors.

Somehow I survived.

The week that followed was a week pain and suffering in the hospital’s ICU. I started to hear the stories about what happened and I’m still not EXACTLY sure what all happened between the ambulance and the ICU.

A blood clot, the same thing that took my brother Jeff from us, nearly took me from this world. But like I said, somehow I survived.

Now, I have a long road back to “normal.” I’ve been home for almost a week now. It’s hard to do things still. Walking is a chore. Breathing can be hard. Eating is still proving to be difficult after the ordeal. It will probably be months before things get close to back to normal. I can’t really go back to work for a while. And when I’m finally able to, I’ve been ordered by the doctors to limit that to like a hour or two at a time.

What that means is that I’ll be out of it for a while. I’m trying as best I can to keep up on things, but it’s proving to be hard as all this recovery goes on. So if I don’t respond to things, at least people know a bit of the why.

Hope the rest of the world is doing better than here. Just glad to still be alive (despite the pain of this recovery time…)

So, a milestone happened here today. The Foxtails, Inc. Patreon went live. I'm not exactly sure if I'm ready for this, but I figured, if I don't, this is never going to work. I tend to be better at keeping up on things when there's a "client" involved, so for all the patrons, that's my way of trying to kick myself in the butt and make sure I keep this going.

There are a bunch of things that are in the hopper for the patron levels, so that's going to be some fun as well. Fortunately, part of that is already done. Just need to work on the other parts now.  And I just need to keep the comic happening.

For the first time in a few years, I'm actually going to make it to Comic-Con in San Diego. I wasn't planning on going, like has happened for the last few years, but things changed rather last minute-ish and plans changed. 

For a bit of background, my younger brother Jeff passed away back in 2000, on July 25th. He had a blood clot that got to his heart. He was only 17 years old at the time and was a rather active person, so it was a very sudden thing. In the years that followed, my parent's usually tried to get out of the house and go somewhere away on "Jeff's Day" so they could put all that out of their minds. That's typically been the week of Comic-Con, so we'd take the crew out to Anaheim and spend a few days at Disneyland. (My family LOOOOVES Disneyland, if you haven't noticed over the years.) I'd come with and I would usually spent a day or two down in San Diego.

The last few years, my mom had decided to just work her way through Jeff's Day and try to keep herself busy at work so she could keep the days low key and distracted with the busy work, which meant that my trip to WonderCon was my convention trip for the year. Well, this year, she decided that she didn't want to be around for the 25th. So, we have a Disneyland trip planned for the weekend and I get to go back to SDCC for a day.

I'll be flying into San Diego on Thursday morning and will spend most of the day at the convention. It will be good to get back to SDCC, since it's been a few years. I'm not sure if I'll be ready for the crazy insanity that I'm sure it's become since my LAST trip out there in 2010, but I'm going to try to hit more panels like I've been doing at WonderCon. And I'm going to see if I can get some folks to give me some thoughts on my comic coloring portfolio. Not sure if that's going to work with the truncated time that I'll be there (my flight arrives at 9:30am and I have a train back to Anaheim at 4:00pm...), but we'll see what happens.

Next year, I'm hoping to be doing more stuff that I may look at a booth at either WonderCon of SDCC.  We'll see.

I need a break, no matter what happens.  Been crazy around here as of late.  For all that will be there, I'll see you in San Diego on Thursday!

An SDCC trip is looking like it's 90% there. Not sure if anything will come of it. As far as dA, nothing really here right now. Still trying to determine if doing art-related stuff is worth my time. Seems that the answer is no. We'll see if anything changes after SDCC, but I'm not putting too much stock in the concept at this point.

I hate this sad excuse of a law.

I was just accused of a crime. In the United States of America, when you’re accused of a crime, you have the right to face your accuser. But, we’re dealing with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998.  A law that is designed to stifle any type of creativity, despite the silly arguments to the contrary. A law where you’re guilty until found innocent: a direct contradiction to the process of the legal system in the United States for over 200 years. A law where you have no right to know who accused you until you’ve been sued.

And I hate that websites like Redbubble have the audacity to even think that they’re protected by this sad excuse of a law.

Sites like Redbubble are littered by thousands, if not millions, of pieces of art and I dare say that a huge percentage of them are direct and BLATANT copyright violations. These violations (that somehow are ok under this same DMCA that just removed a completely OBVIOUS parody) make Redbubble PILES of money. Redbubble, every time it sells an item with, say a piece of fan art on it, is making money as a facilitator of a crime. They know that the pieces they produce are copyright infringements and they produce and sell them anyhow, making money from the copyright infringing works. A CRIME. Yet they conveniently hide behind U.S. Code Title 17, Chapter 5, Section 512(1)(a):

(a) Transitory Digital Network Communications.— A service provider shall not be liable for monetary relief, or, except as provided in subsection (j), for injunctive or other equitable relief, for infringement of copyright by reason of the provider’s transmitting, routing, or providing connections for, material through a system or network controlled or operated by or for the service provider, or by reason of the intermediate and transient storage of that material in the course of such transmitting, routing, or providing connections, if—

(1) the transmission of the material was initiated by or at the direction of a person other than the service provider;

(2) the transmission, routing, provision of connections, or storage is carried out through an automatic technical process without selection of the material by the service provider;

(3) the service provider does not select the recipients of the material except as an automatic response to the request of another person;

(4) no copy of the material made by the service provider in the course of such intermediate or transient storage is maintained on the system or network in a manner ordinarily accessible to anyone other than anticipated recipients, and no such copy is maintained on the system or network in a manner ordinarily accessible to such anticipated recipients for a longer period than is reasonably necessary for the transmission, routing, or provision of connections; and

(5) the material is transmitted through the system or network without modification of its content.


I’m sure their rational is “Oh, we’re a ‘service provider’ and we’re not responsible for the stuff people post.”

I call total BS on that one. If you were just a place where people posted things, I could understand it. But if you’re MAKING MONEY on the things people post, you, as a retailer selling copyright infringing materials, are just as guilty if you want to play that game. You can’t hide being Section 512. You’re not a “service provider.” You’re an accomplice. To a crime.

The DMCA is abused. Constantly. And there’s nothing the little guy can do about it. Except give up.

- - - - - 

As a result, anything that I don't have complete ownership of, or that I don't have permission from the owner, has been removed from my account. I've been getting notices from people for violations of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act repeatedly over the years for things that are clearly NOT violations of anything, but it's not worth trying to fight a faceless opponent. I've grown tired of dealing with things that I've worked very hard on being removed from websites because anonymous people claim that there's something infringing on their rights. Instead of dealing with that, I decided that it's easiest to just remove anything that I can't claim complete ownership of. And little of anyone is paying attention to the stuff I DO completely own, so I don't know if it's worth keeping this up. If I had legions of fans, I could find a reason to go on with all the art side of things. At this point, I think I'm just going to stick to graphic design. No real fans there either, but at least I make money there. (Not good money, but it IS money.)

I sincerely apologize for having to remove things, but with threats of legal action, it's easier to just deal with, without leaving things that could be a threat down the road.

So, WonderCon for 2014 has finally come to a close. Got back to the grind yesterday after a long, tiring, but good convention. It was good to see and hear all the great ideas and tips for things, great to hear some of my favorite creators talk about things and to learn more about some new folks. Some excellent artwork was also procured.  (Including a limited edition print of the cover to Aspen Comics' Bubblegun #2 by the ever excellent J. Scott Campbell --> :iconj-scott-campbell:.) Overall, it was a great weekend. I don't think I did as much networking as I did last year, but that is what it is.

Hopefully I can get things moving forward in the world of artstuffs too.  I did do something last night that I hadn't done for a while.  I sat down and actually did some sketching for some ideas on a re-imaging of the part of Beyond Neverwonder that I've already posted to the site. And miraculously, it looked pretty decent.  I guess it happens some times. I just hope I can keep myself going. It's soooooo easy to be lazy, especially after tiring days at your "day job."

At some point, I'd love to find someone that is looking for a colorist too so that I can get my hands dirty on some sequential stuff. I've got lots of cover-ish type stuff and pin up-ish things, but having an actual story to do again (The last time I did sequential coloring was Elfquest in 2001... 13 years!), that would be excellent! I know little to no one will be looking here, but if anyone knows about anyone that's looking for a colorist that would like my style, I'm open to any suggestions.  I even work cheap! (My other artistic friends tell me that I put the "free" in freelance.) Just a thought there too.  Yeah.

I'm at the airport, waiting to board my plane.  Next stop: WonderCon! Can't wait to see all the folks there this year!

See you all on the other side of the flight!
Happy April Fool's Day all.  Just getting that out of the way.  :)

Finally starting to work back into artstuffs. It's been a rough road through 2013 and into 2014, but I'm hoping that things start working a bit better artistically. Here's some of what's been going on...

To get me going again, I finally got my colors on the wonderful Robyn Hood art by :icondanoliveira: done. I started on that back in November and then the holiday funk took over and I never got back to it until last week. It was good to get something done. Wasn't any new drawing art, but it's a start. It's hard when you're a slacker, so I have to find ways to force myself to do things. Work in progress.

I tweaked the print layouts for my first volume of Beyond Neverwonder and placed a short order with Ka-Blam! I have to say that I miss Comixpress. Their quality was wonderful for short run color stuff.  I'm hoping that the Ka-Blam! prints are just as good. I'll be cool to see that in print again.

I got my bedroom redesigned so that art would be easier to do. My art table wasn't in a good place and was covered in computer equipment before, so now it's more in the open and will hopefully be easier to use.

I also found a few great drawing books by the excellent :icontombancroft:, "Creating Characters with Personality" and "Character Mentor," that will hopefully help with some practice. Also picked up "Making Faces" by 8fish.  I'm bad at practicing drawing, so that's definitely a work in progress.

And finally, WonderCon Anaheim is coming up here in a few weeks.  Can't WAIT to get out there and see all the wonderful stuff and hear words of wisdom and insanity from the comics elite.

It's been a long time since I've done anything artistic. Things kind of got into a funk. Not sure I'm back out of the funk (or even sure it's worth it to keep trying to do some of all these artistic things) but I'm trying to get going again.  It's hard to want to do anything when there's little benefit on the back end, so I'm just playing it by ear at this point.  Does any of this mean anything?  Who knows.  We'll see.  For now, I'm just dabbling.

So, I just got my latest coloring piece online.  It's a great Fantastic Four piece for the latest Battle Artist color battle.  It was a bit more difficult than the last few pieces.  Coloring fire is a pain!  But I think it turned out pretty well.

With that though, we have the interruptions.  This will probably be my last "scheduled" coloring piece for a while.  School is eating up a lot of time.  I have class right after work Monday through Thursday for 2 hours.  Then there's all the homework and stuff that goes along with that.  "So use the weekend!" you may say. I'm helping to finish my sister's basement ahead of the impending birth of her twins.  So construction work on Saturday.  Tuesday nights, and all day on Sunday is church-related work... which leaves little time for extra-curricular activities.  Fortunately classes are only until the middle of August, so it's only 3 months or so, but it sucks that time is gone for more coloring projects.  Hopefully I can squeeze some things in form time to time while classes are on, but if things got kinda quiet around here, at least now you know why.

Elitism is a dangerous thing. Having been an artist for well over 20 years, I've found that, in the end, it's just a part of the business. Unfortunately, one of the latest places I've run into this sad State of Elitism has been here while looking around at some of the colorist groups here on dA. I'm amazed by groups that allow what is typically regarded as sub-par work but will reject something that is way more than worthy of being included based on their own rules of what should be submitted.  I find that kind of hypocrisy truly entertaining.  For me personally, I don't put too much stock in groups being run by so-called "experts" that think they know what they're doing.  I mean, in the end it doesn't do anything to me.  I've been lucky enough to have been paid by one of the larger independent publishers for my coloring work.  Very few people in the world can say that they've been published, so I'm not too put out by groups that ignore decent work.  What's sad is that this is kind of like high school.  (Fortunately I got to skip that, so I'm good that way too.)  It's like the kids that create a little elitist click, then professing that anyone can join, but then when you try to contribute to the group, they ignore you.  It's sad that people have to do things like this to validate their own existence.

As I go through all these groups, I'm slowly adding groups and then eliminating the elitist ones that I run across. My words to people that start groups like this:  Keep this kind of elitism out of the public.  Keep your little clicks to yourself.  The real artists don't want to see it.

That's my rant for the day.  :)

Hey everyone!  

I have to say that I'm really loving doing the colorist thing. I have to say that it's a lot more enjoyable and much more fulfilling than me trying to force drawing (especially when it's hard for me to get into the mind to practice drawing things). Before the stuff I've just finished, it's been WAY too long since the last time I seriously did colorstuffs, so it's an interesting change of pace.  So far, I'm really happy with the Power Girl tekitsune.deviantart.com/art/P… and the Avenging Spider-Man tekitsune.deviantart.com/art/A… pieces.  I'm just amazed how much things have changed since I first colored the Elfquest stuff back in 1992.  Good stuff!  

Right now, I'm working on a Batman/Supergirl piece fav.me/d5za3p3 with pencils by :iconmarcioabreu7: and inks by :iconjo-ink:. It's going really well.  Base colors are in and I'm working on highlights and shadow work now.

I'm hoping that I can either get into doing covers for someone or get back into some sequential stuff again someday (hopefully soon!).  Good times!

So, I got a tumblr site set up for me to post my coloring stuff. It's at comicolorist.com. Just the few new things there right now (the Power Girl piece and the Avenging Super-Man #1 cover), but I'm sure there will be more. Hopefully soon. Be sure to go and visit! www.comicolorist.com/
