Note: Apparently dA inserts this giant empty space in my journal if you get here from your message center. Just refresh and it'll load properly. Not sure what causes that. . .

Hello, everyone! Visiting my own page, I noticed that I haven't written a journal since December 3, holy crap. I figured I'd give an update, especially since I didn't tell everyone how my holidays were and didn't wish everyone else a happy holiday!

I'm sick, currently, but I'm hoping that today is the worst day and that tomorrow is the start of a downward slope toward recovery. I brought my laptop just in case I need to work from home tomorrow, though I don't want to. I've been working my ass off at the job because, as I mentioned before, the holidays are a very busy time for my line of business. However, my team has done really well and the holidays are almost over - I'm very excited for post-holiday and all the things we can do while, well, waiting for next holiday.

My actual holidays went well, too. I had a small Christmas celebration with my immediate family that was just swell. We had dinner (not too big but all of our favorite selections), watched game of thrones, and opened presents in between episodes. It was really great and we got to watch my parents watch the Red Wedding for the first time. . .

I'm very excited for some free time though and hope to pursue some new hobbies a little! I am putting on some weight so I intend to get a gym membership and start swimming again. It feels good to be in shape so I look forward to an overall increase in my happiness, health, an well-being. I also plan to get some personal art done this year and post it for all of you to see. I would probably post more art if I wasn't so shy with my sketches. I'm also pretty shy about showing my characters (the humanoid ones). But I'll have to get over this. . .

Speaking of art, you may recall that my last journal was a "Note me and get a card maybe if I can!" journal. I am very pleased to announce (which I'm sure all the recipients figure out by now), that I was able to send a card to EVERYONE. Even though I looked inactive, I worked my tail end off all month and I was able to create a card for every person. That is a total of 100 cards - and I was able to put a custom drawing in 20 of them (I posted the artwork for this already recently). I am very proud of myself for accomplishing that, but I'll definitely have to start earlier next time because I sure was tired staying up late to get those done. I also received mail from others and it was AWESOME! I hope to note the people soon that I haven't noted already.

Well, I guess that's about it for now! I'll try to post  a journal later. I'm pretty sure I originally had more to say but I wrote this once already and accidentally closed the tab before submitting it. Take care, everyone!

LOOK AT ALL THESE CARDS. The tall stack is US and the short stack is international. I hope everyone liked 'em!

features: art for me

There has been some wonderful art done for me and I can't ever say enough how appreciative I am when I receive not only beautiful art but also kind words said about me. Thank you everyone for your care, love, and support. I will feature the most recent art created for me in this section regardless of whether it was fan art, a trade, or an exchange. Please go visit these people, they are fabulous!

Hello! I lately did a pixel art "tutorial" and I found your artwork(s) really helpful as a reference, so I've used it there. You are mentioned in the picture as well as in the deviation description: Pixel art tutorial - shading / textures + examples
If you don't want to be here please tell me which pictures I need to remove :)
Have a good day!
