I keep wanting to draw stuff, but when I sit down to try I don't have the energy for it. Words have come so much easier of late - I hope that changes soon. I may try drawing traditionally for a while to get back in the swing of it, but... this has just been one heck of a summer.
I posted about my grandfather's death a while ago, and thank you to everyone who offered kind words for my family. Looking back at my last journal entry before that happened - I feel bad for not sticking to my novel writing, but I do plan to pick it up again soon. Maybe I'll write the sad parts while my heart is in the right place. Who knows, maybe writing some of my characters through grief will help me with my own.
As it is... I had to go to another funeral last week. A friend of mine was killed in a car accident on the 14th of this month. We were out of town when it happened - on the way home, actually, when we found out. I mainly knew him from working with him in karate for years, but... Our dojo and our karate brotherhood are all in shock and mourning for him right now, but I'm sure no one is hurting worse than his grandparents - they raised him like a son, and his grandfather especially is taking his death very hard.
I'm still looking to the future right now - honestly, I'm really looking forward to going back to school. My room-mate this year seems like a nice girl, and I'm excited to meet her. I also still have more ideas for things to write and draw and work on, and for the most part things ahead are shaping up well.
I hope the stormy weather goes away soon. A little sunshine would do a lot of good right now.Other News and Updates:
Hoping to get some concept art and mini comic stuff done before school gets back. Also looking into cons to cosplay at. Hoping for a good year!Commissions:
I've updated my commission info here.
Basically, I just wanted to streamline the process of ordering one and I think this does the trick better than what I had before (and will hopefully make pricing a piece of art easier, too.) After having some critique I also updated the blog's theme to make finding things easier.
All five slots are still open, and prices now start at just $5!100 Themes Challenge:
