Cleaning up my folders.  I haven't deleted anything, you just have to switch to browse "All."  

Also moved all my clubs into their own journal page.  There was just too many at this point.

Don't forget to check out the many shops where I sell prints and merchandise of my work, as well as Etsy for my handmade crafts.  And you can follow me on Facebook, WeHeartIt, and Pintrest.  I regularly do free to enter give aways.  You can find it all on my website: Thedustyphoenix.com

Not too much new to say, but I was tired of looking at my old journal.  New buttons are up on Etsy.  Still have more I have to photo so I can post it.  Been putting a lot of new prints up on Zazzle.  Trying to get some coloring done, but my tablet doesn't want to cooperate lately.  I might have to sacrifice a sheep to it pretty soon or something.  Pretty sure it's evil and awakening.  New giveaway up on Facebook.  November is Doctor Who themed.  Still trying to decide what to do for December's.  And I joined some new clubs and re-organized my lists since it's getting so long.

Sorry I just don't update my journal much, but if you're watching me you know that doesn't mean I haven't been making stuff.

The big thing I've been working on lately is a bunch of fan art chibis.  They're fun but they make me feel like I'm being lazy about my art.  But the whole chibi thing started with a purpose that's slowly coming to life.  I have recently invested in a button making system.  That's right I am now the proud owner of a 1.25" button making machine.  This thing was no small investment and after getting it I was initially suffering from buyers remorse, sticker shock, and intimidation.  But my button machine and I have now come to terms and I've punched out my first (and second) (and third) batch of buttons.  I'm hoping to start offering these buttons on Etsy soon.

You may also have noticed I've been using the chibis on lots of shrinky dink type stuff.  I've got phone charms and earrings so far and I'm on the verge of a batch of key chains.  I'd also like to put together some necklaces in the future and maybe some charm bracelets.  Sadly my toaster oven decided to randomly die (The thing had barely been used for anything ever and had no right to up and die on me >.< ).  But I just lucked into buying a new one for a really really good price.

I've also made a batch of printed magnets from these chibis.  They're not fantastic quality (I didn't expect them to be) so I may not offer them on Etsy, but I'll probably be making more in the future for my grand plan.  I'm also contemplating Iron on transfers for making little tote-bags and such.

The long term goal of all this is that in addition to selling on Etsy I'd like to open my very first Artist Alley booth at Kumoricon 2013.  If that does well I'd like it to become a regular thing and if it really does well after a couple years possibly travel to other nearby cons like Sakuracon.  But we shall see.

In the mean time I'm also continuing to work at non-anime related crafts and painting of ornaments and the like to sell on Etsy and hoping to finally get to do a booth at a local craft bazaar or two this holiday season.  I've been wanting to do this for a very very long time but the last few years I either didn't feel like I had enough merchandise ready, or there were more important matters to attend to at the time.




I do get a bit tired of chibis and plaster figurines though, so I'm slowly trying to start sneaking other art back into the line-up.  I've got 4 large scale drawings I've recently gotten scanned and am painstakingly getting cleaned up.  I've a few more I've started and lots of ideas for more.  I have a few new comics in mind, though sadly they're not fan comics which have been some of my most popular stuff on devart.  And some other stuff that always seems to be sitting on the back burner.


Now for a problem I'm hoping someone out there might want to help me with.  

Today my tablet decided to die.  It's my second tablet, I bought it used, and I think it lived a hard working and honorable life.  I'm sad to see it go.  I've already done a bit of research and I'm fairly decided on my next tablet purchase, but funds are low.  So I've signed up for an account on a donation site.  Anyone can go to the site and donate any amount over 50 cents (they do take a small percent from each donation).  I don't expect any major donations any time soon, but I figure it can't hurt to ask for a little help if anyone is willing.  My tablet is a major part of everything art that I do.  My digital work is done at least 80% by tablet.  And even my photography and crafts often feel the touch of my tablet when it comes to posting photos online, both for sales and display.  So if anyone has a couple spare dollars to toss my way my tin can is sitting here in front me waiting gratefully.

And last but not least, if you wish I'd update journals a bit more often, well, it probably won't happen.  But you can keep up with me through the internet addictions that are:

My Art Facebook-->  www.facebook.com/pages/Thedust…
My Art Twitter-->  twitter.com/Thedustyphoenix
My Art Tumblr-->  www.tumblr.com/blog/thedustyph…

Honestly, I don't update them terribly often either, Facebook being the most visited.  The Tumbler is pretty new and I haven't quite gotten it going yet.

You may have noticed I finally did a huge art dump after not uploading in forever.  I haven't had as much time as I'd have like for drawing lately, but I've been crafting like crazy.  So there's a load of new merchandise for sale in my Etsy shop and I'm still prepping merchandise shots to load here as well.  I also did a major overhaul on my website and at long last I was able to get my domain name which I'm super excited about.  I am now Thedustyphoenix.com.  I've got my Facebook page all set up where you're welcome to come browse my galleries, leave a note, and follow me for updates, and I've revived and re-decorated my Twitter where you can also get updates when I post new merchandise, ect.  

I'm almost ready for Kumoricon, just have some detail work left on my costume and some patch work on my mask.  I didn't have the time or money for anything new so I'm reviving my Luna costume, which is my favorite anyway.  Same head as before with a brand new body suit and paws that are a nice upgrade from before.

I cleaned up my clubs again.  Dropped a few and joined several more new ones.

Just a short journal to update some clubs and such.  Have I disappeared again?  Nah, not really.  I haven't had much time for drawing and coloring lately but I've been making a lot of craft stuff.  I just haven't put in the effort to photograph it yet.  Trying to photograph stuff is kind of an event for me because I have to set everything up from scratch and I don't have the best lighting system so that takes a lot of tweaking of desk lamps and natural light lamps and actual sunlight when I can swing it.  So I'm not dead, just not connected yet.  O.o

Introducing my new Facebook page!  It's a fan page built so I can post short quick updates of new things I've made, events I've attended (like Kumoricon), and what I'm up to with my art/business.  I've been working on it for a couple months now getting old stuff loaded before I officially announced it so people wouldn't get spammed and it'd have a nice running gallery all ready to explore.

It's also open for people to have discussions and it's hooked up to my Zazzle shop.  So hit the merch tab and you can see my most recent Zazzle products.  Please, gimmie a look and maybe a like.  ^_-

A bunch of the older stuff in my Etsy shop is still reduced price so go take a look.

I deleted all of my folders.  They'll come back, but they've been bothering me for along time now.  So I deleted them and I plan to re-organize and downsize the new ones I'll be making.  I haven't deleted any work and I don't plan too, but you'll probably have to flip over to browse to see everything from now on.  I'll just keep the stuff I like more and the newer stuff in my featured and folders.

Added alot of new stuff to Etsy.  It's mostly hand painted wood and plaster items.  I'm hoping that by Christmas time next year I'll have a big enough inventory to open my own booth in a few local Christmas Bazaars.  So expect to see random Christmas stuff throughout the year.  Everything I make I'll go ahead and post for sale on Etsy, if it sells great, and if it doesn't I'll just disable Etsy while I drag things to bazaars then put back anything that didn't sell there.

Got a good number of new photos on Zazzle too.  Mostly Christmas pictures (I've been lacking in seasonal stuff there so I took alot of pictures this year so I'd have stuff for next year) and some of the nicer looking craft photos I've taken.

I made a new batch of business cards because I didn't like my old ones anymore.  I made standard business card size and some more mini ones which I plan to start spamming around town under windshield wipers and such when the weathers good enough.  

I also decided it's about time to change the look of my website thedustyphoenix.tripod.com again.  I've already got a style in mind but I want to tie it together with a sort of logo and make new banners for etsy, zazzle, and a new icon for here to tie it all together.  So I'm hoping maybe by mid February things'll start looking a little different.

A bunch of the older stuff in my Etsy shop is still reduced price so go take a look.

Good Things:  There's a sale going down in my Etsy shop.  I marked down almost all of my old products and a couple of my new ones.  It's time to move the old stuff out and make some room in my room.  I've got the original prices marked at the bottoms of the sale item descriptions so you can see the deal you're getting.  ^_^


Not so good:  I'm getting really annoyed with Zazzle (The site where I sell most of my prints)  I've been making a bit of money there but it seems like the last couple times the site updated they made it LESS user friendly.  They get these new products in (coasters, ornaments, skins for phones and netbooks) which are awesome.  But then they go and take away the sorting options for my images which makes a long tedious process of making items about 5x or so worse.  I can't even move old items to the top of my images anymore but now I have to dig through 27+ pages every time just to get the same image onto a different product.  It's really annoying.  I'll still be posting new things, its fine when they're new because they're top of the list.  But I don't know if I'll be bothering to put my already existing images onto the cool new products because it just becomes a frustrating pain in the ass.

Good Thing:  Happy Thanksgiving!  And everyone be careful on Black Friday.  It can be fun, but sometimes people go crazy.  My favorite Black Friday memory was at Fred Meyer I watched Woman B steal socks out of Woman A's hand basket while Woman A was still shopping for them.  There were plenty of socks to go around but I guess woman A's were better somehow XD.

Working on some craft projects and setting up for Halloween.  It's so nice to be creating things again, it feels like its been forever.

Joining a bunch of new clubs to get myself noticed again.  Traffic tends to disappear when you disappear first.  I really wanna push the advertising hard and get my shop going.  Etsy's been stagnant for awhile and I expect it to be slower to pick up, but I've been having some good luck with Zazzle I'm happy to say.

I cleaned up my gallery a bit.  Everything is still there but I've taken about 5 pages of things out of my featured section.  So if you're looking around you might want to hit browse or check the folders.

Still looking for a copy of one of my drawings that was taken down.  Check my last journal for info: thedustyphoenix.deviantart.com…

Apparently someone reported one of my deviations as porn and Deviantart decided to delete it under their newish rule about fictional characters that are underage not being shown in sexual situations.  It was a Sailor Moon fanart I did as a request for someone.  And though I didn't state it in the description (something I'll have to be more careful to do from now on) I didn't draw her with the intent that she was underage.  In my mind Usagi was in her early 20s at the time my drawing took place.  

Anyway I'm not terribly mad they took it down (A bit annoyed definitely), my bigger problem is that since my old laptop died and then my backup hard drive died as well I no longer have a copy of this picture.  So if any of my old watchers out there might have saved the image and actually still have a copy I'd appreciate it if you could do me the favor of uploading it somewhere like photobucket or tinypic.com and send me a link so I can have a copy too.  Even if it's a smaller low resolution copy I'd really be grateful.

The picture was titled Honeymoon-Request.  It was a picture of Usagi and Demando from Sailor Moon being intimate in a purple room with a canopy bed and tall windows along the wall.  In the bottom left corner was a nightstand with a vase of roses and the silver crystal with Chibi Usa and Crystal Tokyo inside being blasted away.  For a better idea of the pic here's a detail shot I had in my scraps: fav.me/d222qwp

My Etsy shop is back open!  I'm pretty excited about that.  I delayed it for along time after being ill because it had become such a hassle during that time and I haven't had much time for new stuff lately.  But I've been missing it and thinking of it more and more.  Today I bought something on Etsy and randomly decided it was a good day to re-open.  I've got about a dozen things listed so far and I'll get more and more stuff up over the next few days, but I want to space it out and I'm also checking all the merchandise first to make sure it's still in good condition.   So far so good.  ^_^



Other stuff:
I've got a bunch of lineart done, but no coloring yet.
I finished my Kumoricon mascot entry and I'll post her soon as the rules allow it.
Hoping to do at least a few more crafts before summer's out but we'll see.
Lots of new stuff up on Zazzle.
Lots of new Photography.
Have an inkling to self publish a coloring book sometime next year or so.

You might remember that I was having major laptop issues.  Well, that's because it turns out my laptop had seen its days.  Last time I brought it in I got a call from the Geek Squad guys basically saying my laptop sucked and they were tired of trying to fix it for me ^_- and since it was still under warranty (for about 2 more months) I got credit towards a new replacement laptop.

All this after spending over 2.5 hours at the Geek Squad counter while a creepily friendly geek guy tried to fix my old one himself while still dashing off to help over 10 other customers.  Even though if he fixed the software it still would've had to go in for a hole I managed to put in the screen a couple days before.

And then it took another hour and a half of going back and forth between counters and the sales floor to get my new one.  One employee I tried to ask for help grabbed my paper work grabbed a box and told me to go check out.  I hadn't even got to see the laptop he expected me to go get -_-0 .  But I finally got some help and decided to upgrade to something a little nicer and more powerful with a bigger screen and stronger graphics card.

So the biggest problem left is that my external hard drive where I backed up most of my files (because external hard drives are supposed to be such a safe way to do that hence their existence) decided to randomly die on me.  I think all my files are intact in there, but I can't get to them.  I do have a few things I double backed up on SD cards, but only the smaller or really new stuff.  And it took forever to locate my Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator but they are now finally installed.

Now the biggest hang up is just a matter of time and the fact that I've somehow managed to lose my stylus for my tablet.  Tried mouse coloring, I used to only do mouse coloring, but I've been spoiled for too long and just can't get back into the flow of that.  I also haven't been able to re-install my printer/scanner.  



But I live and slowly slowly slowly I'm getting back to work.  I still have Etsy set to vacation mode until I have the time to maintain it again.  I haven't built anything new in so terribly long.  But Zazzle is up and running and I have been sporadically filling in the holes there.  There's some new stuff and alot more selection of the old stuff.  I've actually been making some cash there too, it's finally picking up.  Not a ton, but it's helped me pay the odd bill here and there so I figure it's finally becoming worth it.  ^_^

Updating the whole clubs thing is on my 2 do list, but it's kinda low priority for now.

**update**

Starting to work on re-joining and getting caught up with clubs.  I'd only re-joined one since clubs went to the group system.  I'm also not going to re-join a couple that just don't seem to do anything anymore.  I also updated the list of features and hopefully got caught up on comment replies.

My laptop died and had to be taken in for service.  Died of the same thing it died of just a couple months ago andwas supposedly serviced for.  Luckily my warrently on that is still good until June or I would've been totally screwed.  Unluckily it was guessed that to fix it they're going to have to wipe it clean and replace the motherboard.  So I'm losingeverything that I had on it.  Most of my files were backed up on an external drive, but now for some reason the external drive isn't working either.  So I think (and hope) that all the info is still in there just trapped unless I pay someone to extract it for me which I can't afford right now.  I lost a few other things like the high quality files for my Irish Royalty pic and the Kumori-girl mascot entry I've already retracedthe linestoo twice and had finished most of the coloring on.  But at least no devastating losses.

I also took my camera in, again for the same things I've taken it in several times for and they have yet to fix.  That warrenty expires in May so I'll keep taki9ng it in over and over until I'm satisfied.  

Because of my internetlessness I've put my Etsy shop into vacation mose and won't turn it back on until I've got a stable internet access again.  Zazzle however is up and running.

I'm feeling much better.  I still get tired alot faster then I used too and I trip over nothing way too easy.  But otherwise I've gotten most of my motor control and strength back and I don't feel sick anymore.  I sill have a little trouble typing and I had to re-learn my tablet, but finally I can color again.

If you want more details about what I'm talking about check my last journal entry.

I'm just starting to work on art projects again, but I'm also trying to put my life back together after losing 2-3 months of being sick.  So it's a slow process.  I also found a bunch of old art, some I want to replace smaller files with larger ones, others re-upload, and others load into scraps.  

I'm also trying to go through my messages here finally.  Old deviation I'm watching too, I had about 5,000 when I came back, got it down to 300, and now it's back a little over 1,000.  I don't look at everything, but I do like to skim through them and take a closer look at the ones that catch my eye.

While I was just starting to get better I could sort of work a mouse and not much else.  Plus my laptop was in for repairs for 2 weeks and I could only use my sisters when she wasn't (and my laptop has to go back in eventually because they screwed up a few things that weren't broken when I sent it in.) So I used the time to re-organize my Zazzle shop, something I've wanted to do for a very long time.  

As I was doing it I surprised myself at just how little content I had there.  Alot of images, but most images only had 1 or 2 pieces of merchandise.  So if the links from here made before December 2009 no longer work I'm sorry.  Make a comment on it and I'll try to fix it, but I may be moving a few more things so I don't want to look for broken links myself yet.  I'm also going through very slowly and filling up each of the folders with more merchandise and at the same time adding new things.  I've got a crap load of new images, not all of which are here on deviantart.

As far as clubs go I've notices that alot of them have switched over to groups.  I plan to officially rejoin any I'm already a member of and maybe a few new ones.  And I know for some of them that means re-submitting art or something, so it's on my to do list but it's low priority right now.
