Sheesh, where does the time go?
I still haven't been able to really draw anything I've been meaning to draw because of school. So, sorry for that and sorry to the readers of my MLP web-comic (if any) for the lack of new pages. I knew this semester would be bad, but I thought I'd have something
to submit by now, but no such luck. I really hate this, not drawing what I want to focus on and the concepts just keep piling up. I want to start taking commissions soon, but it looks like I won't be able to until summer or when we finally get done with this stupid move. Well... at least the semester is almost half-over. Right now I'm making my next comic strip to submit to the school paper since I haven't done one in a while. I also found that my university is hosting an exhibit for comic strips and pages so I'm going to try to get a couple of submissions in there and I also found an opportunity for a concept artist position for an animated cartoon, so that seems worth applying for. It seems to be an independent project (there's not a lot of info. about the commissioner) and I'm not sure what the pay rate would be in this job, but it's related to what I've always wanted to do so why not go for it? They're opportunities, at least.
Since we're in March, that means my birthday's coming up in almost two weeks. I'm not really feeling much for it. Right now, it feels like it's going to be one of those "Another-year-and-I-accomplished-nothing...-" birthdays. I already know I'm not getting anything since the PS3 I got for Christmas counts for both my Christmas and Birthday presents. I'll be going on Spring Break starting the day before my birthday, so hopefully, I can get a break from school. I did find that by pure coincidence, a business I follow is opening commissions on my birthday. I've been wanting to commission them for something for a long time, so this may be a sign for me to try and get a slot (Not that I'm all that superstitious). Part of me wants to tell them that they're opening commissions on my birthday, but it's probably better I don't. I don't want to guilt them into just giving me a slot and they probably wouldn't believe me/care anyway. I would go into detail as to what this business is and what I want to commission for, but out of respect of their privacy, I can't really say much more. I might go into it a little more later.
Also, I've recently applied for volunteer work at the Gateway Furmeet in St. Louis gatewayfurmeet.org/
in April. I'll be working with security and basically make sure everybody follows the rules and stuff. I'm really excited for it. Maybe I can get some guidance from attending artists on how to get myself more out there and noticed. I had hoped that I would be able to do something art-related, but no dice. Oh well, maybe next year. It ought to be fun and I look forward to meeting the people I'll be working with along with the attending artists, fursuiters and guests.
With my family still bent on moving, my older-brother finally bought his own house and will be moving out soon with his girlfriend. I'm kinda glad he is, especially because he's not exactly what you would call "motivated (for anything in general)." He was kind of a jerk to me when we were little; bossy, complaining about me, ect. But we both have our place; Him, the big brother that bosses me around and me, the little brother who lives to make him miserable XD He wasn't all bad though, as we got older, we became a little closer as far as brothers go, though we still don't have a lot in common. It's going to be different not having him around as much, but it's not like I'll never see him again.
Didn't think I'd have much to update on, but here it is. This year is really going by fast, isn't it?
