Post Birthday UpdateThe other day was my birthday, and pretty busy one. I decided now would be a good time to update this blog, since I haven't updated here since last June. I'm not really much for posting about my life, and I really haven't had much to update. Since my last update, I've gotten a new job, teaching again, and it's taken up a lot my time and energy. Not a bad thing, but indicates I haven't had much to really update here. Really, if you wanted to learn more about me, you'd do better to follow my Tumblr accounts: Organized Chaos ("personal" and random content blog) and Random Marks (the art blog). Both are updated pretty frequently, and more so than my DA gallery and my Blogspot gallery (although I do update there for more detailed art posts).
I'll probably craft a generalized about me post and sticky it in a few days. If I do have big things happening related to my art and writing, I'l
Summer timeAbout time to update this journal. Summer's starting, which mostly means hot weather and swimming for me. (Hey, I'm an adult in the so-called "real world.")
I've been pretty quiet over here, not too many updates to the gallery. But there are a few things going on over at Club-Tutu, and I've gotten into some fandoms, so there's the chance for fan related stuff, and some original things.
Yep. That's it. Have a good summer, everyone!
AprilWow. High time I bumped that last journal off the front page. I really should make it a scheduled thing to update this once a month, but I tend to put things off because I tend not to have much to report. Anyway, here's what's been up.
First, yesterday was my birthday. I'm now 31, although I feel like I'm still something like 25 or something mentally. Didn't do too much, just a nice dinner with my family. Thanks so much for the birthday wishes.
Second, I've been doing rather well with a challenge for the year, which is to draw a monthly themed item everyday for all of 2012. Admittedly, I'll already sort of failed in that I've missed days, but I'm still going at it, working at drawing something no matter how quick and lousy each day. I was doing all right with posting for the first couple of months, but I really need to do some art dumps for the last few months. It's been a difficult challenge, but a learning experience. Last month's theme, plants, actually had the result of more observ
1. For each of the 20 first people answering this journal, I will put their avatar and the three deviations I like most from their gallery on the list!
2. If you answer, you have to do the same in your journal, putting the tagger on the first place. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone!
Jobs and Dragon*ConIt's been a long time since I last updated, huh? A bit of a drought.
Good news is I have new full time job, and I started it a few weeks ago. That's one worry I don't have to fret about so much any more. It's taking advantage of my editing background. A bit routine, but I like the challenge.
Another good thing is next week is Dragon*Con! Yes! I'll be meeting up with friends and hope to have some fun. Let me know if you're going. We may luck up and meet up. I don't have too much planned, only a few things set in stone. I will be at the Birds of Prey photoshoot on Friday, the DC photoshoot on Saturday, and walking around with my friends briefly as Leena in our Warehouse 13 group cosplay. There's definite interest in checking out some of the Eureka and Warehouse 13 panels. Otherwise, it's very open.
April Is Coming!Ah, just three more days until April starts. March wasn't the greatest, but feels better than February did. Still, glad to start a new month, and especially April. My birthday is coming up, stuff is going on in the area, and it's spring. It's all good.
Pokémon wise, I have beaten the third gym leader, Burg, and working on building up my current team. It took a little while to adjust my team around because I had a Pansear for a while, a fire type, which I never really used all that much in my core team, as well as a normal type in my Lilipup/Herdier. After thinking about it and how I actually wasn't using him, I decided to drop my Pansear and replace him with a Scraggy, a dark-fighting type, which helped to fill in the offensive gaps I had. Will they be the strongest team ever, even at most evolved state? Probably not. But I think I'll do well enough through the main game. And I tend to keep the pokémon I start with throughout the game for as long as I can. Only annoying thing
Of Pokemon and Sailor SenshiI cannot wait for Sunday. Some of you may have guessed from the couple of pieces I did for February that I'm a mild Pokémon fan. I used to be interested in the anime back when it was first airing, but I don't much care for or know anything about the series over the last few years. I was usually more interested in the game, anyway. Well, Sunday is when Black and White are released, and I'm toying with the idea of doing some sketches to keep track of how things go while I play the game. Probably won't be as clever or as entertaining as the ones done by other artists, like TamarinFrog, but I want to have some fun with it outside of playing the game. If I do, keep in mind that I'll be basing it on game play from Black, not White, and there are going to be story differences, especially how I'll be going to Black City instead of the White Forest. Maybe I'll get White sometime in the future after I get pretty far with Black so I can see what that part looks like, but that's a maybe.
February is Over!And rather glad of it. Personally, February was a rather eh month and I'm glad to move on to a new month, even if a calendar date really doesn't mean all that much. That said, I am glad with what I've accomplished this month artistically. I set myself a challenge of drawing a finished image everyday of the month, and while I did falter for three days, that is much better than my previous attempts to draw daily. So here are some thoughts about my daily February drawings.
I learned I actually can draw something everyday. No, really, that is a big deal to me. I am very bad about completing anything, and I tend to let my fear be my big artist's block. I avoid drawing, I make excuses not to draw. I spend way too much time online or watching TV. But, this month I didn't let my excuses get in the way and I actually drew something almost everyday. Sure, some of those days were crap, but they were drawn nonetheless.
I can be pretty persistent when I want to
Over the HumpJust thought I'd update to share my thoughts about how things are going. It's the 14th, the halfway point for the month, and I've been doing pretty good in keeping to my objective of a drawing a day. In a lot of ways, that pleases me. It's very rare for me to do this well on prior daily drawing challenges. Even for previous April drawings, I've missed days and couldn't keep up with it, often before the halfway point. This time, I'm actually making it. And a number of them are actually finished; not just inked, which is big, but colored with markers. I don't often get that far. And I have been fighting the urge to skip a day. I'm pretty sure it's only been out of sheer stubbornness that I've kept up with it. Go stubbornness!
Only a few disappointments. Namely, I've been slipping back into my tendency of doing portraits. I do like drawing portraits and heads, but they tend to be defaults and fall backs for me. They don't ask for much. Another thing is my failure to follow-through on reac

Having an Online Presence"All artists need to have an online presence," I said.
"Easy for you to say, Popular Artist™," they said.
"I had to work hard to get 'popular'," I said
"But it's SOOO hhaaaaAAARD," they said
"That's what I just said," I said.
After making my status posts about making an online presence, I figured I'd make a sort of guide. I made a very generic list of things you should do as an artist who wants to get their name out there or "get popular". A lot of people were like, "but I've done all of that". But chances are, you haven't. There's a lot that goes into this and it takes a long ass time. Don't think it's just gonna happen in a month.
So I made a guide based on my own experience and what worked for me (as an illustrator/artist. Some of these tips are more specific than others and some of these will not necessarily work for you. Everyone's different. Keep in mind this is mostly for illustrators/animators/story artists etc. This won't work fo
