Watchers

Hi everybody, long time no write.

Phew, been a long while since I updated people on what's happened to me here so let's see:

2016
-job hunting, sister moved in with me, some freelance work, and lots and lots of crying due to financial stress, not the best mindset to be in to making art so I've only done a few pieces and lots of doodles shared privately with friends.
-Near end of 2016: I got a job! My sister got a job as a storyboard revisionist so she left her old position at this small studio called Soapbox Films and I took over that 1 man art position.

2017
I got a job! It's been great in that I'm getting some consistent income coming in again. I'm not rolling in the dough but I'm not drowning in financial misery. It also means that even when my roommate moved out to pursue her career, I can actually afford to pay a higher rent rate and I now have the apartment to myself and my sister. (definitely makes having friends/family over less awkward inducing).

Biggest claim to fame atm: If anybody's heard of 'The Muppets take the Hollywood Bowl' event that happened in the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles at Sept 8-10, I got to do the title artwork for their opening and the giant stain glass lineart for the finale.
 
Working at a full time gig has it's ups and downs, the biggest hurdle has been that I've been doing some 3 hours' worth of commuting daily and while its a time buster, I've been using all that time to work on my Necromancer script. I couldn't make it work back in 2016 because there were too many plot holes for me to feasibly draw out all the pages that I would be satisfied in putting in all the drawing hours.

The only hiccup to this whole ordeal is that my laptop died on me TvT;;; 

But at the very least, I can borrow sister's computer to draw out my layouts and I'm hoping before the month is over I'm going to upload the first couple of pages.

Dunno what else to say but if you guys have questions or where or how I'm gonna upload stuff, don't hesitate to leave a comment and I'll try to be more active here again in DA.

Hi there!

A friend of mine showed me one of your comics, and that led me here, and my finger to the watch button.

Your artwork is fantastic!!!

Have a lovely day!
