News


And things are actually coming along well this go-round.

As it currently stands right now, I am on the road to getting employed with Bankers Life. A life insurance company that specializes in the over-65 crowd, and doesn't overly rely on TV and Radio ads. If things go well with the interviews, I should be on the fast track towards settling my own debts, and then some. We'll see how that turns out. But when 37 people are scheduled to attend a meeting, and only 4 (including myself) show up, that does make me look good despite not having a car (mass transit for the win!)

On the art side of things however, not everything is moving as fast as I'd like. Granted, this is my own fault, and no one elses, so you all can put those pitchforks away. However, as it currently stands, I will be at Furry Migration this coming weekend. How will you spot me? Well, nothing's set in stone just yet, but, one thing to look for will be my logo:

This will be up at the table I'm assigned. I'm still working on the prices, I'll be charging for the con, but rest assured, if FlyingFire has anything to say about it (and she does), I will be ready for this con. One possible thing to look for is my computer. Since I'm primarily a digital artist, I'm going to need something to work on (not project wise mind you, just, I need my tools!), and since I don't trust my tablet worth a damn, I'm gonna have to lug my tower to the con (fun times!), and hope that for the three days I'm working it, nothing happens to it.

If you see my at the con, do not hesitate to come up, shake my hand, take a picture, and take a business card. Don't have a commission in mind when you talk to me? Don't worry! The business cards have my contact info, and more importantly, I can always answer any questions you may have. Examples will be on hand, but please do not ask me to turn my screens around. I will most likely have to work to do, and I don't want to take un-necessary risks with any of my computer components (moving them is risky enough after all).

Will I be online during the con? Most likely. Odds are the convention center will likely have some sort of wifi set up for me to use, but don't expect me to be very talkative on Skype as I will likely be busy with people asking me a hundred questions.

And those of you wondering why I'm putting my tower at risk, it's actually pretty simple: further advertisement. As boyars6 can tell you, I am fully capable of building computers from scratch (well, from parts anyway), and bringing my own computer along to show this off will be another way I can make some money at the con. If you come there with this intention however, please for the love of all things, do not ask me to purchase the parts at the convention. I will be happy to set up a time and a place after the convention to further consult with you, and set up the order, and make all the arrangements. If this isn't possible, then just let me know, and I'll be as brief as I can so you can get the parts you want. The cost of building the computer itself will depend on what all you want me to do, but that will be up for discussion when the time comes.

Other than that, there's not much else to really report on, other than the fact that Athena is doing amazingly well. She's adjusted well to the move, but has a small issue around kids (she's scared of them), but she's otherwise being very friendly towards everyone.

Ok, if there's nothing else...

Tank out.

Thank you for fav'ing my live-action casting choice for Chris Redfield (RE, RE: CV)! Would you please leave a comment on it regarding what you think as well?

I've cast other characters from Resident Evil for my take on a new movie series, and you can find the choices here. And if you want more, you can add me to your watch list.
