So I guess now would be a good time to admit that to keep myself going in this world I recently got a full time job over at Lowes. Working in the paint department?

Not exactly my ideal first job but I gotta pay the bills and my adobe programs somehow. MEANTIME, I also did the Sailor Moon Redraw Challenge recently.iu_125482_3993712.jpg

Heres a link to the actual artwork

So while I'm doing my thing I'm probably going to continue experimenting more, start working more dilligently on expanding what I do for my portfolio, then who knows where the road will go from there. All in all the only thing I can do now is just live for today and appreciate the little moments in life.

Okay so here's some news.

Recently I've decided to take a step back from sites like Facebook, Instagram, and even Twitter in hopes that it will help me get my own shit together. While I don't plan on quitting sites like newgrounds I've slowly been coming to the realization that I need to figure out some sort of structure and I suppose that social media has been more of a distraction from that more than anything else.

SO THERE'S THAT. However I guess with out social media I wouldn't have found out about things like the Six Fan-Art Challenge so I ended up having some fun with that. Good times.

Also I suppose that I've also been kind of learning how to appreciate myself in the present moment. I guess part of that has to do with healing from a lot of past traumas that happened but, all said and done it did kind of help me figure some things out, but I guess the more relevant thing here is that one of the reasons why I realized to why I make art (Even Fan-Art) to that extent is because I'm really just here trying to figure out the meaning of my own existence. Which I suppose is kind of pompus in it's own right but maybe that's why I'm really drawn to drawing certain characters that I find myself relating to in a certain sense.

Oh and Easter has been all right. Given that I've been mostly spending time with family anyways during quarantine that's sort of to be expected.

ANYHOW, right now between getting my own life together and figuring out how to keep building up my web presence outside of social media is going to be one of the things that I'm going to work on. I could consider opening a Patreon but I feel like I haven't built up enough of a following to really do that just yet so we'll see what happens from here on out going into the end of the year.

Stay safe all you lovely people.

Hoping all is well for everyone, it's been kind of a rough month on my end managing a post-college life, but I'm managing nonetheless.

Meantime, been kind of trekking along drawing some more stuff. I'm considering on showing some character concepts that I've been working on for some time now in the near future and doing some stuff that isn't just all fan art and the occasional memes like you see up here.

Best wishes for all you lot.

So here's a belated post for the new year. And the overall 2020s. I'm just doing what I can to make more art and I have some plans on being more active on the BBS community boards and actually commit myself to being part of this site more often.

And who knows, I'll probably start doing animation stuff again! Been meaning to do that but I guess it hasn't dawned on me that I have more freedom, putting aside temporary part time work and coming home to draw.

Oh so hey.

I've been recently doing some stuff with my artwork and while making some adjustments to my own schedule since now I'm moving up into doing real world stuff and figuring out the wonderful world of being an adult, which is a good thing I suppose since now I have some time to upload a few things here that I haven't gotten around to. (Which is why you'll be seeing me post some random things every now and then on here.) This comes after some healing from dealing with Burnout from just being a student.

I also am going to get my Senior Capstone film from Pratt uploaded onto here soon, its not really anything special and I'm just posting it as is since I feel like I could have pushed it further but I feel like for the records sake it could be worth uploading here at the very least.

With that said, expect to see more stuff from me every now and then from now going into the rest of the year. Meantime why not check my Instagram or Twitter out to see some of my happenings?
