My boss calls me and tells me I don't have to work tonight. I'd be more angry about her not calling me sooner if I didn't just get out of working a 12 hour over time shift I did not want.
Soooooooo long time no see...It's been awhile. I probably should have said something sooner but I'm kind of bad at talking about such things. So lets get down to the heart of the matter.
Back in October, of last year, there were some significant changes that happen in my life and in my job. Those changes made it considerably more difficult, but not impossible, to work on my web comic Imperial Entanglements. 2017 was a year of constant stress. There was enough things both big and small that went unresolved and un-dealt with that by the time October hit, it hit me hard. I don't deal with stress well and when I reach my breaking point I tend to go into full hermit mode. While in hermit mode I made almost no artwork for about 3 months and that made me honestly feel worst because I love creating.
Currently I am slowly working my way out of this funk. I'm making artwork again and I'm feeling a bit better.
I loved working on Imperial Entanglements. I loved making you guys laugh. I loved that
Two Week HiatusHaving very little free time and even less sleep over the past two months has negatively effected how I feel about Imperial Entanglements. I don't want to feel this way. I want to look forward working on the next page instead of dreading it. I don’t want to feel the the time spent working on the comic is preventing me from working on other projects. But right now that is how I feel.
I tried powering through and the end result was two week's worth of half finished comics. I am not OK with that. I think the best course of action at this point is to take a short break. I have a stack of comics and books I haven't had time to read. I haven't played SWTOR in MONTHS. I have so many ideas for pictures I want to draw and cosplay armor/weapons I want to craft.
I want to continue this comic, but right now I just need to spend some time doing something else so I can look forward to working on it again. My biggest regret is that I kind of feel like I'm letting you guys, my read
Sooo I'm currently in CairoI haven't slept in 30 hours but hey I'm in Egypt. And sleep deprivation has been my constant companion for the last 2 weeks so no big deal. Tomorrow I get to see pyramids
So I'm Going to EgyptI fly out early tomorrow and then will spend the next two weeks experiencing all the sights and sounds of an awesome country I have always wanted to visit! Needless to say for the next two weeks I'm not going to be around. I just wanted to let you guys know so you were not wondering where I was. I plan to make another journal about all my adventures when I get back. Until then, I hope you guys have a fun few weeks without me.

So I am on tumblrI have been posting on tumblr for awhile. I guess I don't really mention it much on this site because it's mostly the same stuff I post here. It seems a bit redundant to follow me both places. But recently someone has be posting a bunch of my star wars fan art on tumblr. They are giving me credit and linking back to my deviant art page so I'm not mad at all. I have no problem if they wish to keep doing that. So long as there is a link back to one of my galleries/blogs/website I will never get angry at someone pimping my stuff. That said, it's probably a good idea to let you guys know about my tumblr blogs.
impe-comic.tumblr.com This tumblr contains all my Star Wars related art, including my comic (Imperial Entanglements) and whatever other random star wars or swtor related things I feel like posting.

Day 2 of the regional Jackhammer Competition......taking place underneath my bedroom window got off to an early start today. Boy am I glad I work nights so I can be home during the day to enjoy it. Sure wouldn't want to miss all this fun by sleeping.
Good news everyone!Apparently saving your place of employment from burning down gets you a high five and a $15 subway card. Actually that's a lie, I didn't get a high five. I did a nice letter from both my plant boss and my security company boss (I have like 5 different bosses) and a subway gift card.
Which is cool but the best news is that my kitties survived the fire. We have two feral cats that my co-workers an I have collectively raised since they were kittens. I was a little worried about them, with all the fire and the increased traffic. Luckily they both showed up the next day to tolerate me petting them in exchange for food. As is their custom. So huzza for free sandwiches and feral cats.

Protecting yourself from Paypal chargebacksI decided I'd write something on this since it seems to be affecting a lot of my friends and artists I'm close to. I'll start with a few disclaimers.
I am not a finance expert. I have never filed a chargeback nor have I been in a chargeback dispute (fortunately). I have done some research out of both curiosity and out of desire to help out the community a bit. This is going to be quick(ish) and summarized. I'm also going to be changing some things to the way I sell as well (obviously).
This journal isn't about what to do in a chargeback dispute but rather, how to set up your sales so that you'll have the upper hand when having to deal with a dispute. I've included some useful links at the bottom for further information!

Some believe that Paypal does not help in disputes over digital goods but a policy

Printed Minky Reviewedit to add: yes the printed minky is washable! I didn't wash mine, but according to spoonflower "Wash separately in cool or warm water using a gentle machine cycle. Machine dry using a low temperature or permanent press setting and remove promptly to avoid wrinkles." Although please don't machine wash a plush, ahah. Just the fabric.
So I recently got the chance to play with printed minky! Here's a sort of review about it
Bought from: spoonflower.com
Price: $28/yrd. Very expensive, but for a very versatile product of this quality it's definitely justified.
Shipping: Only $6 to Canada, with tracking, took about a week and a half to arrive once shipped, no duties. A+
File prep: spoonflower has very simple requirements that are easy to follow. I scanned my pattern pieces, cleaned them up and colored them, then I copied them into a file that was set to spoonflower's specifications (150dpi, set to the width of minky. I added length as I needed it). To make sure my pieces
