Hi everyone! Sorry for the unannounced absence. The holidays hit with a vengeance and right after that is my first convention of the year and after that a few family birthdays and WHEW rl kept me busy enough. Since I knew it wouldn't be a great time for finished pieces, I decided to take some time for a fun little meme I found on Tumblr. I redesigned several old characters-- sketches mostly, according to themes for each day. Some turned out well. Some were meh. Others kind of pissed off my character muses and I'm not sure they'll ever talk to me again. Ah well.

I have some exciting news to announce! There's a new anime convention to the Kansas City area, SausomeCon and I'll have a table this year as Ninja Monkey Studios. Hoping to see friends and some new faces there. The guest line up looks great so far. Speaking of a great (incredible) guest line up, Ninja Monkey Studios will also be at Project: Comic Con in St. Louis this year. We'll be one of the featured artists since they're focusing on female artists of the industry. Thank you to the panelists for choosing us! The guest list is thrilling and intimidating!

Other than having a couple of comic projects to keep me busy this year, I'll take on commissions as I can, but I don't suspect I'll really be able to delve in to them until later this year unless I get bored. I'm considering updating and re-opening my online store and possibly find another way to make income while I'm working on publishing so I get at least a little positive cashflow. When I figure out the ins and outs of that, I'll post more.

There are so many changes to DeviantArt to keep up with. I still haven't made any customized skins or played around much with my widgets which were introduced years ago 6_9 I need a manager. Hopefully, I'll have more activity over here, but if you miss more frequent updates from me, please check out my Tumblr or the Ninja Monkey Studios FB page. Thanks, guys!

Hey, man, don't sweat it. I really appreciate you taking the time to come say happy birthday! I hope you're having a great day. I'm doing gardening on May Day. I'm so predictably domestic, I just might vomit XD
