First Journal of 2013

Thu Jan 24, 2013, 9:17 PM
No matter how much I stress and prepare, the end of the year always ends up kicking my ass and I need about three weeks to recover.

I've been MIA for a while due to several annoying bouts of illness, travelling and planning my wedding in April, but I've not been idle!  I've been working on Kickstarter art (I'm embarrassingly behind on that, but bound and determined to deliver each and every reward to each and every backer).  Ikkicon was good, and it taught me that anime cons are a lot different from comic cons but still fun!  I'm so out of the loop on which animes are popular right now.  Just started watching Black Butler and Soul Eater.  So far they do not make me want to rip my eyeballs out, but neither do they make me want to create fan art.  So there's that  =/

BUT I do have some new stuff coming out.  Ponies, Adventure Time and Pokemon are all on the list for pendants and pins.  I have some pony pendants for sale right now in my Etsy store right here - please check them out:…

Also: Pokemon X,Y, you guys.  Omg.  So excited.  Must get a Nintendo 3DSXL.  Just take all my money already, Nintendo.

I have the next 5 pages of Alice vs. ALICE penciled out and ready for ink and color.  However, I have several other pressing commitments that need tending to before we can get the gals out of the Disney park.  Sit tight, it's on its way, it just may be a month or so more before my schedule clears and I can devote an entire week to the process.  My wedding and my Kickstarter backers come first, and that's as it should be.

And I'm planning on having a table at several conventions this year: (I'm still waiting to hear back on some of these.)

No need to rush, take all the time you need. Soul Eater is a good anime/manga in my opinion. My friend is absolutely in love with Soul. Congradulations and have fun with your wedding planning. :D:D:D

Wishing you the best and ooo pony pendants owo must see! Ah Black butlers good but really its the manga that makes it. YOu could go old school like Sailor moon or Hetalia that is insanely popular. *shrugs* I am not sure on your preference so dunno what I can offer you. Hope you do well and hope you feel better soon ><
