Hi there!  If you've come across my old LJ account and wish to continue following my work, I'm active on these websites:

Deviant Art

Also, I occasionally open for commissions, and you can find my rates here.

I check LJ a couple times a week, but it's been half a year since actually writing anything! Although I read everyones' entries I'm stuck yet again thinking "I should comment but don't want to without having something EARTH-SHATTERINGLY IMPORTANT TO CONTRIBUTE". What the what that's no good

My tumblr's been a more consistent place to post art: http://soaps.tumblr.com/ I dislike not getting to reply to others' comments, but having a blog with a clean slate is kind of nice. Also, I enjoy not needing to resize my art every time I upload, since tumblr does it automatically. But I'll definitely keep my LJ, come September I'll have been on here for 10 years. GOOD GOD

2011 AGENDA:
July 28-31: Otakon in Baltimore
August 1-4: New Jersey to see old buds for four days
October 13-16: Possibly New York Comic Con, if affordable?

It's kinda cool because it's been four years of freelancing full-time, and not until this year had I saved up a big enough safety net to travel. But now I can! NYCC is a toughie because of the local hotel prices, but AJ and I are determined to go get rejected by a dozen comic companies at their portfolio reviews. If one of us got hired by someone...it could mean being able to buy a house and living a financially modest adult life!

Since I'm joining Savannah at Otakon to promote her comic, I thought it'd be nice to draw those characters on some art cards for the occasion. TADAAA~ ACEO's are great because you can be so quick and experimental. Wondering if I should invest more time in making prints though?

It's stuff-dump time~~~~

Watercolor PracticeCollapse )

What I learned was:

1. Iris and Dahlia have a hairstyle that I cannot possibly draw
2. My bulky inks don't mix with detailed watercolors! Either ink heavy and paint simply, or ink light and paint with detail.
3. I should probably learn to actually paint flowers before including them in everything

Misc Digital Fanarts: Phoenix Wright, FF7, Jill ValentineCollapse )

Creepy-ass dream-sketchesCollapse )

And I end this with an dream that scared me into being nicer to my sister when I was 12 or so.

I've drawn a lot this summer and it's fun. I'm wondering if doing that fall-spring museum job again with Cat would re-kill my sketch-drive, buuut I could use the extra Christmas money.

That puppy of mine has me sleep-deprived. ...OKAY REBECCA CRY MORE

Over the past few months friends have been drawing a lot of SM, which made my own nostalgia build and build until I cranked this out. NOW I CAN MOVE ON WITH MY LIFE

Also Amya, one of the comics I draw for, is being printed! If you would like to show your support, it can be ordered here for $6.50 CAD which converts to like $6.27 USD. I Think. But they look so fancy and I'm really looking forward to getting my copy:

Every month, it's been fun to get scripts in and see how each of the comic writers' stories are unfolding. In Amya, there's going to be a lot of really shadowy and moody pages! In Anathema, Jinny's been deadpan for such a long time but her personality can finally come out again; she's been fun to draw. <3 Lastly for this month is a Scifi short I'm finishing for two awesome people. It's a really cool little story with a suspicious space-dame and everything.
