Today was a bit slower with the updates, though that was more due to going through photos of my now deceased pets. I’ve uploaded a bunch of ‘shorts’ to Youtube, as well as added more blog posts from Facebook. The last being Daisy’s final days with us. Hopefully next week I’ll make more progress, but for now, I’m going to go take care of my mental health. I think I’ve earned it.
Its been an interesting a productive day today. I managed to get chapters 1 through 10 of MAQ #041 uploaded to the comics page. Going through the old pages definitely opened up a lot of emotions. When I started that comic, I was HEAVILY influenced by the shojo anime and manga of the time period. Looking back through it, I’m almost embarrassed by how goofy the comic could be at times. Chapter 10 is entirely 100% fan service that has not aged well. Even so, I learned so much while making the comic. Even if it is never finished, it was important to me for over 10 years as I kept working on it.
Next week I’ll get the rest of the chapters. At some point, I’m going to sit down and write out where I wanted the rest of the story to go in order to give it a little closure.
Pretty significant update today: I’ve gotten quite a bit of the artwork re-uploaded! At least up 2020. Slowly, the gallery there is coming together how I want it. Now that I know how I want it organized it’ll go faster. Considering that I’ve set aside 5 hours a week purely to work on the website, it’ll all get uploaded soon! I really want to have Maq#041 to be uploaded, so I may work on that next week. I know there are a lot of old readers who’ve asked about it.
And that’s it for January! I think we’ve made some good progress here. Lets hope that I can keep it up during February!
Well, it took several hours of tinkering, because WordPress is about as stable and well put together as wet tissue paper, but I can now update with my mobile device. This will allow me a little more versatility when managing this place.
I’ve also started my new project of transferring Facebook memories I wish to keep onto this site. I’ve got reminders to check every day that I can, and I’ve set aside some time every week to work on this site. My hope is to get all of Maq #041 uploaded and readable by the end of the month.
Keep checking back! We’re going to be updating way more often nowadays!!
Yes, I know! Somehow, after all this time, I’m still here. With the recent issues with various social media sites (ie just about ALL OF THEM), I felt it wasn’t a bad idea to start working on my personal site again. While not the best for mobile use nor the most elegant of sites, it’s mine and isn’t at risk of getting wiped out because some random billionaire gets bored and thinks its funny to destroy the social media site I’ve been using for years to showcase my art,writing, and personal thoughts.
So what’s new? Not too much. I’ve been very, VERY slowly adding a few new blog posts with pictures from my Facebook memories, since I don’t really use Facebook much anymore. However, there’s decades of information there I’d rather not lose, so my hope, for the new year, is to log in every day if 2024 and transfer over whatever images, memories, or blog posts I feel are important to preserve. With luck, if I can keep up with it, I’ll be able to completely close down my Facebook and never use it again. Its gotten so bad lately that I’m actually missing Live Journal and MySpace.
As far as site content, I’m sure long-time visitors of my work have noticed a stunning lack of any artwork. This year, I think I’ve doodled maybe five pieces, and finished NONE. Artwork just isn’t happening anymore, and I’ve made my peace with it. Maybe someday I’ll draw again, but until then, I’m content to just write. As far as writing goes, my series are still going! A Daedra Named Desire is on short-term hiatus while I plan out the final act, and I’ve got a new romantic comedy about the biblical apocalypse gone wrong. Be on the lookout for the first draft getting posted real soon!
After a bit of tinkering, I finally got around to fleshing out the F.A.Q. section. Many of those pages I haven’t had since 2012, so they needed some updating. However, there’s at least something up. As for content updates, I finally got around to posting the first chapter of Space Marine to AO3! I’ve been meaning to do this for a long time, but I was always hesitant since I wanted to do edits. However, I told myself its better to put something out there and get opinions on it, then edit it, than keep telling myself I’m going to edit it and never putting it out there. My hope is to slowly build a readership for my original work, so that if it ever goes to print, I’ll at least have something! So if you’re interested in reading a romantic-comedy featuring aliens and a post-apocalypse Earth, please give it a look!
My next step is to start updating the art section, since it’s been stagnating lately. Look forward to it!
Thank you so much for sticking with me through the long silence. I lost my password for WordPress, and apparently it was sending the recovery email into the abyss, because none of the e-mails that I have been using for almost 20+ years received anything. I believe it’s all been fixed, and I once again have access (hint: if this ever happens to you, go through your C-Panel and find the WordPress Toolkit).
Now that I have control again, expect more updates. Due to the collapse of Twitter and me deciding to finally leave Deviant Art, I’m going to focus on posting all of my old artwork here, along with my now defunct comic. I’ve also updated many of my writing projects with new content, so if you’re not following me on Ao3, you’ll find links to my work here.
There’s not much new right now, but keep checking back! I’ll be updating more frequently now!
It’s been a long six months, but things are finally settling down with work and life in general, and some exciting things are coming to fruition.
First up, it’s confirmed: I’m selling at Otakon this August! I had signed up for last year, but after they were forced to cancel, our registration was rolled over to this year. I’m fully vaccinated, and I’ll still wear a mask and scrub down with hand sanitizer, but I’m excited to attend. It’s been ages since I sold at a convention, and I’m going to have all new stock, but my chibi stickers will be making a big return. My hope is to get my online store up and operational before than.
I’ve continued updating my Skyrim fanfic, though updates have slowed to once a month due to my work schedule. Still, I’m winding down part two, and hope to wrap up the entire story in the third part. I’m already working on the first part and cleaning it up. My plan is to have each part printed, if only to have a copy for myself. I may open it up pre-orders at some point, but that’s up in the air.
Lastly, I’ve recently opened my commissions. Save for Con-crunch time, I’m going to leave them open for the foreseeable future. If at any point, you’re interested in having me do some work for you, head over to the Commission section and fill out the form.
Been quite an interesting few months. I returned to work, quit my job because they refused to book me (I’m paid by commission), found another job, then left that job because they were so poor in their protections that two of the other therapists came down with Covid. It’s been a tumultuous time, and it still hasn’t settled yet, but I decided to start focusing on alternative means of income. Mainly, working on getting this website completed and setting up my commissions. My plan is to open up my commissions within the next few days, in time for the holidays. So if you’ve been waiting to get some artwork from me, you can head over to that section and take a look at my prices.
I took the opportunity to update my image galleries. They should be working now, with a light box feature! Those of you on mobile devices may need to expand the images a little, but I’m still playing with all the features.
This time of year is always busy, but I’m hoping that being currently unemployed will give me plenty of time to work on my various projects. In the mean time, please stay safe and wear your masks when in public!
Things are slowly progressing with the website. I’m slowly getting all the images ready for uploading so I can have my archive of artwork back up. I’ve been fairly productive since I opened up a Patreon, so I have a ton of new work to show off! With luck, the full website will be up and running by the end of the month.
Keep checking back!
