Welcome, everyone! I'm glad you stopped by. Please, feel free to flip through the pages.

Despite not having "blogged" (can you call this blogging?) for a while, there's not much to say. I work full time now and that generally takes up my day. I try to sneak in some television watching in there somewhere.
If you haven't noticed, I've uploaded some stuff. Art and whatnot. Check it out if you're so inclined.
Cosplays are plugging along. The commission is coming along nicely, if very slowly. I'm taking my time on this one, for sure. My personal group cosplay has recently turned into a singular cosplay. I'm not totally surprised about this....The two who were a part of this group are in financial straights...but I'm a bit disappointed, I suppose. It would have been fun.
I watched this movie recently, Tai Chi Zero. I like kung fu movies and this one was a lot of fun. It was original and funny with a pretty solid story line. One review called it the hyperactive love child of Scott Pilgrim and kung fu and that's the most apt way I can describe it. I look forward to finding the sequel.
I heard the other day that there is a dinosaur exhibit close by where you can ride a giant animatronic T-rex. It sounds amazing.
And that's it for me. Hope you're all well.
Amazingly, I got my comic up. I can't tell you how surprised I am.
Only the title and two pages up right now. I'll post the rest tomorrow. I hope you'll check it out.
EDIT: The whole thing is up now.
For the last month and a half, I've been working double shifts at work. On the flip side of that, I get three day weekends, which is awesome. This situation will end soon though and I'll have normal shifts again, which I have mixed feelings about.
Random: At work, I listen to the radio all day. There's a particular set of commercials for a particular school and the woman who voices (? (I don't know what you'd call it professionally)) the commercial sounds uncannily like the anime voice actress who is probably best known for playing male roles. Do you know who I'm talking about? I always listen real hard to those commercials to see if I can figure it out but it's hard. I doubt that would be a credit I could find on IMDB....
Otherwise, I picked up a second cosplay commission and that's been fun, in the brief snatches of time that I have to work on it. It started as a full-package deal (costume, accessories, and wig) and then somehow grew to include three wigs and props. I'm not complaining.
I finished one of my comics and was going to upload it last week but I couldn't crop the pictures for some reason or other so I'll have to do some finagling with it. Which will have to wait until I'm not working. Also, the actual uploading may or may not happen. TheO has a history of not recognizing that I've uploaded something. It's weird.
Anyway, now that that comic is done, I've started looking over the first comic I was working on and...well....I really shouldn't get so distracted. I have all these notes and, although I know what they mean, I don't know what I was going to do with them. Bah. Maybe I'll just work on another trope writing....
For this comic I've been working on, I've been using a fine tipped sharpie in my outlining. But I kind of don't like it. It bleeds a bit. Does anyone have suggestions for something else to use? I mean besides a computer. I'm rather technology stupid, for someone my age.
