News and Life
Greetings everyone!First of all, thank you for stopping by to check out my journal or page. It means a lot to me.
So I came up really close to having troubles again, but after everything, it all worked out in the end. I'm super proud of my work that I've done lately. Though it seems there have been more complications than not, I've been completely self-sufficient for the last 9 months!
My wife and I will be celebrating our 6th anniversary on Sep. 14th! That makes a 15 years of dedicated friendship and eight years of non-stop living together craziness. We're not doing anything too special this year, but this will be our first year as completely independent adults. No school. No family. Nothing but the two of us, our skills, and the internet. That's fairly big, at least I think so.
Anyway, things are looking up. I'm cranking out work like no one's business this week! It should continue. My goal is to have rent ready by Wednesday (I pay weekly rent on my motel room). Let's see if I can do it!
Hope you are all doing well. If things are tough for you right now, just remember to try and keep your head up.
Things can always get better if you let them.
Later!Regarding my art: (repeat)I'll be posting a few things on here that are pieces I've done just for me. Unfortunately, many of my clients really value the privacy of the art/writing they're buying form me, so I can't put any of that up. Which is fine in the end, because DA wouldn't accept most of it anyway. Haha! Anyway, I'll be posting up a couple things in the next day or so. I know they're not much but they show I've been practicing still and trying to keep up on thing. I hope you guys will like them.
Regarding my commissions: (repeat)
I really appreciate everyone who has been so very patient. I know some of my work has just fallen out at top speeds, but some of my clients have been waiting a while and I really owe them my gratitude. It has been a vicious cycle of trying to stay on top of everything financially, but we're finally getting there.
All new work I take will be completed immediately. All old work will be done as quickly as possible in-between working on the new work. This makes sure I have money continuously flowing in, but I don't get so caught up in earning more than the old work doesn't get done. It will probably take all of September for me to get fully caught up on the backlog, but I should be able to do it.
I had to get massively in debt with some of my new clients in order to save my wife and I from certain doom, but now that the moment has passed and I'm getting over being really sick again, I'm going to slowly start working through everything, only taking on things I know I can handle from now on.
I only need to make $360 a week in order to keep me and my wife fed, clothed, in a room, and to keep our things paid off. So, I'll be doing that much work a week and then catching up on my backlogged stuff.
Thank you to everyone who has given me their support!
The Whatever Universe
I'm slowly working on a massive webcomic and iterative media website project called "Whatever". The images to the side are from the project.
The first comic, "Evening's Awakening" now has its cover and first page up! We're putting out one page a month right now and one chapter to our e-novels as well. The project will also be featuring several many comics in the future that should be produced weekly to bi-weekly, but more updates on that later.

As always, thank you for all your support!

New commissions will only be taken once in a while to cover living expenses. New commissions will be prioritized and finished quickly so that I can return my attention to my backlogged commissions.
I feature randomly depending on my mood and inspiration that day. I think there are many more talented artists than I can count, but these are just some pieces or artists I've happened to stumble upon. Please, if you see something you like go and comment on and fave the piece and watch the artist. We are a community that grows stronger through unity and support.
