Man, it's been a long time since updating this journal! It's actually been a little over a year, I think (shame on me). Oh well. I looked at my pageviews and noticed with glee that the 33,333 mark is approaching soon, and I wanted to do something special for the person who catches it! it's been a long time since I've done a Kiriban, but I've always enjoyed the practice. So, whoever catched the 33,333 mark, send me a screenshot and you get a line drawing of your choice (please no porn)! I miss being an active member of the DA community, and I'm hoping that I can start to interact with more people here. :D

In other news, I have a tumblr, if anyone has seen the link to it on my page at labillustration.tumblr.com. I usually update it a bit more frequently with sketches and such, so if you have a tumblr, please check it out! I also have a silly little webcomic about my bad gameplay experiences with The Legend of Zelda: the Windwaker, called U-Tried Force (get it?) at youtriedforce.tumblr.com, so check that out too, if you get the chance. It's not very good, but I have fun with it!

Also, I'll be tabling Otakon for my 10th year in attendance (not 10th year tabling)! I'll post a map once we find out our seat assignments, so if anyone is coming to Ota, stop by and gimme some love! I'm preparing a ton of work, and my Sailor Moon badges will be there too! Soo busy @_@

I will also be posting the background work I've been doing for FX's Archer and Unsupervised for the past (almost) 2 years, because I realize I haven't shared any of that yet. For work that now takes up most of my days, I feel I should share it with the rest of the world! So that's coming soon.

I think that's about it! Happy hunting, and thanks to everyone who's been faving my arts and watching me! I think some things have frontpaged recently, and I'm super grateful for that. So please, keep watching, and I'll try to update more frequently :D Thanks, everyone!

Hi all~! Life has been pretty crazy lately, but a fun time nonetheless! Been trying to do more personal work, but I can't seem to be able to finish any of it! Soon, I guess, but first is preparation for Otakon 2012! I haven't yet gotten my seat assignment, but let me know if any of you guys will be there, and make sure to stop by! I'll be posting some of my arts very soon, so keep on the watch for it!

That's...pretty much all I've got to say :D

It's been a while, and soo much has happened since I last updated! I disappeared for a long time because in September, I got an email out of nowhere from Floyd County Productions, the studio that makes the show 'Archer' on FX, stating that they found my portfolio online, and offered me a position working full-time as a background illustrator! Two weeks later, I got the job, uprooted my life from Savannah GA, and moved to ATL working on a new show called Unsupervised, premiering on Jan 19th alongside the new season of Archer! Working there is such a blast and it was seriously one of the most surprising and wonderful things that has come along in my life! So yeah, the hours can be long and by the time I get home, I'm usually bumming it out and playing video games; I'll try to be more active on here but it's very difficult. I'm sure I owe a fair amount of illos to people, and they will come! I'm still kind of settling in even though it has been 4 months now ><

Anyway, Merry Christmas to all! I miss you, DA, and I hope everyone has had their Christmas cheer and wonderful family tiems :D

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Hi everyone! I've been going to Otakon faithfully since 2003, and this year I HAVE A TABLE! Please stop by and come visit! This is the first time I've ever had a table before, and I have no idea what to expect. I'm going to be in the K 7-9 section with my friends, and I'll be selling my original art, and some new fanart as well. Little badges, buttons, bookmarks, and stickers from Naruto, DGrayMan, Pokemon, Bleach, Mario, Zelda, Ookami, etc. (whatever I can get my hands on, basically). I'll also be doing commissions, and commissions are still open for Otakon, because I have to raise money as well! Please come stop by and give some love! If anyone is an artist table seasoned veteran, please I ask for your artists table tips and tricks to generate more sales and attention!

See you there! Whoooo!!!

Well! Because of the response from the DD evui.deviantart.com/art/Creatu…, I am approaching the 25,000 mark! (after like, what, 3 years? Yeaaaah.) To commemorate this awesome point, I wanted to run a kiriban contest; whoever catches and screen-shots the 25,000 pageview gets a free request of their choice! Happy hunting! (it'll prolly be a while, so keep checking back) Thank you all for your awesome comments, faves, and watches! I love you guys! :D

I was seriously just thinking not ever a week ago about fav.me/dglkaf, and how it was most likely the only DD I would ever get. But today, I look in my message inbox and wonder how in the world I got 167 favorites for evui.deviantart.com/art/Creatu…! Needless to say, I am stunned and excited to have another DD! Thank you everyone who stops by to see this, and biggest thanks to :iconlokinst: and :iconatramina: for this wonderful opportunity!

Hello everyone!!

I'M GOING TO TOKYO, JAPAN! It's an off-campus study abroad trip through SCAD and it's an amazing opportunity that I just could not pass up. It's my last chance to do this as a second-year graduate student, so I am incredibly excited that I even got accepted to this program with such a limited amount of accepted applicants.

However, all this excitement is offset by the fact that I need to produce a sum of money for the security deposit by the 20th! Money, all of which I currently do not have. I just found out I was accepted today, so that doesn't quite allot me the amount of time to steadily and comfortably build up the funds I need in order to secure my spot. However, going to Japan is one of my all-time dreams, and I will do anything in my power to travel to this amazing county.

THEREFORE! I am opening commissions for everyone! There will be a good amount of slots, because it is difficult to balance between school, but like I said, I need the funds and am desperate. So please, even if it's a simple sketch, every little bit helps, and will go to the Tokyo Trip Deposit Fund!

Prices are as follows:

Sketches: (example:
-(character) Portrait: $10 example: 3.bp.blogspot.com/_RkfyYoqKmPA…
-Full body: $15 example: fav.me/d2r4qz6
-Multiple characters: Starting at $13, $4 per additional characters example: 4.bp.blogspot.com/_RkfyYoqKmPA…
-Realistic portrait: $15
-Full scene: $35-$50 depending on complexity, amount of characters, etc.
-Additional $5 for a rendered sketch (meaning with shading, full range of values, contrast)
-Inked work is an additional $10 after total price

Colored work (done in Photoshop)
-Character Portrait: $35
-Full body character: $45 fav.me/d1mvwtu
-Multiple characters: +$13 for each character
-Full scenes: $50-$100 depending on complexity, amount of characters, etc.
-Realistic portrait - $50

If there is any category that I have forgotten to add to the list, please comment or message me to inquire about the pricing. Please do this if you have any questions for me as well!

I am accepting PayPal primarily. If you are unable to pay with this method, we may be able to negotiate the method.

I will not draw furries or any pornographic content. Maybe. I'm willing to stretch. But I'd rather not.
LOL, it's my birthday. That's awesome. I haven't been such an active member on this here anymore, and I'm not sure why. It's a stupid move on my part because there are so many great minds that converge together in one place, and so many different views are shared amongst one another...it's a good place to learn and grow. From now on, I'm going to start making an effort towards reaching out to my fellow artists and producing more for myself. This community receives a lot of criticism, but overall it's an excellent place for us artists to really reach out.

Here's to 23 years of life and seven years on DA!

Love you all,
