It’s been a rough time for the family lately. Not long after my last update, my grandpa, Bob, went into the hospital. Of course we were concerned for him, but he’s been to the hospital several times in the past few years, so everyone assumed he’d bounce back. After two weeks though, we noticed that, while sometimes he seemed to get better, he would decline again.

On June 27, we finally laid Grandpa Bob to rest beside my grandmother, who had died back in the mid-90s. He was my last grandparent, and at 98, he’d lived a full life. One of the few WWII veterans still left, he was afforded full honors during the ceremony.

Now my dad and I are spending more time together. After all, there was now a rather large void left in his life. My parents had invited Grandpa to live with them years ago, and my dad and his dad had done a lot together. So now, every Saturday, we have dinner together and watch “Svengoolie” together.

After everything, we’re now getting back into a routine again. It’s been rough, but life carries on. I’ve been working on my “Daedra Named Desire” fan-fic again, and will hopefully have new chapters to post soon. That is, if I can drag myself away from House Flipper 2! Apparently this game really has a hold on me; I haven’t even touched the latest expansion from FFXIV! I’m also still working on getting all my old artwork reposted to my site. And I’m gearing up to go to Otakon at the end of the month. So lots of updates coming in the near future.

Until then, please enjoy these pictures from our Hawaiin Shirt tribute to Grandpa.

I know there’s been a silence of update posts, but I have been working behind the scenes. I ran into some problems uploading my older artwork; apparently 2019 was when I was swapping computers. As such, my sketches were scattered across various folders and back-ups. Eventually, I had to just go through my Patreon and save all the sketches that I’d uploaded there. Thankfully, after working on it for two weeks straight, I’ve managed to get all of 2019’s artwork uploaded. Here’s hoping this is the last time that I have to go hunting through my far-too-many back-up folders to find all my artwork. At the very least, I am consolidating everything as I find it into one area.

I’ve desperately needed to do a reorganizing of my various computer folders for way too long. After all, I’ve been carrying over data and back-ups since almost 2003! Over 20 years worth of disorganization! Perhaps once I get everything uploaded to here I’ll focus on getting my computer folders back under control.

In the mean time, I’ve uploaded all artwork from 2019 through 2017. I’ll see you all in the coming weeks with even more archived artwork, until its all uploaded! At which point, I think the website will be fully functional and updated, and I can focus on building new things rather than preserving the old. Until then!

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.
