2020 Projects

So the thing I want to work on this year that I hope will lead to an increase in upload frequency is project focus. This will be tricky, considering how often I try to wedge in a new hobby. I got a new sewing machine last week, and two days ago my mom showed me how to use it. I'm going to make my f…

Patreon Up and Removal explanation (if applicable)

First up, I have my patreon page up at https://www.patreon.com/jechoes90. It's nothing too elaborate, and I don't have much patron-only content yet, but I wanted to let you guys know that I do have my page up. I hope you can become a member. Also, I have removed all the fanart of disney characters.…

A bit lost on business matters...

Sooo… I've chosen a new upload strategy, which is to upload all of my high school art and work on new stuff in the mean time. I have 20 well-endowed pin-up models in the works, along with a bunch of inflated human characters, the guild of bested carnies, and a Don Bluthanized Lemony Snicket. As for…

Itenerary: Need to finish old projects

So, since discovering Cold Turkey blocker... my dedication hasn't picked up all that much. Definitely need to figure some things out. BUT. Here's a list of the things I need to finish up before starting anything new. That's my main problem, starting new things withoug finishing the stuff I've alrea…

Gonna upload scraps more often now

So, I've been pretty insecure about my infrequent upload count lately. I'm thinking that I'd be much more at ease if I uploaded a few scraps every couple of days, both story synopses and visual sketches. I feel like I ought to assure my subscribers that I am working, it just takes a while for me to…

Closing Networking Season: A Rocky and Rigorous Journey

I'm about to close networking season, not out of stress, but I'm only two points away from completing my itinerary. Over the past couple of months, I joined several telegram chat groups and discord servers, met many people (including a few overseas, which is huge), and learned a lot more about myse…

Should I have expected this?

Once I completed my drawing season, I wrote an itenerary for what would constitute the duration of my networking season. Obviously, quite a bit of that had to do with my getting more involved in the fandom, particularly concerning meat space meetups. Now, I haven't sought out friendships with my ow…

Our Human Masks Reboot / Compromise

I'm going to reboot our human masks. I'm going to write it according to the outlining technique soon to be presented in my upcoming story (which probably won't get done until the fall, when I start writing season). Now, bad news first. I won't be able to write in anyone's character. It's nothing pe…

Objectives for next month; also important disclosure

For those of you who actually bother to read these journals (I won't lie; I usually don't read anyone else's journal entries myself), I'm making excellent progress on that picture I'm drawing for my brother. It's not furry-specific, so I won't be posting it here; I'll be posting it to my deviantart…

Farewell, and Grab 'Em While They're Still Up

On July 1st, I will remove all of my submissions and discontinue my account. I have nothing personal against any individual I've interacted with, but the sexual nature of the furry fandom is truly starting to bother me. I apologize to anyone who might be expecting more of "Our Human Masks," but aft…

Renouncement: Back to work

Thank you all for your support and reassurance. I am now feeling back up to work and hope to start posting pictures regularly. Prices will go up on June 1st, when I shall add "Inflation" to my commission types (I'll still be posting costuming art, but I intend to expand my repertoire). Anyone who c…

Announcement: I need a sabbatical.

Let me get to the bottom line. I need a break from posting furry art and literature. This is not because any of you have offended me, but the fact is I have little social exposure outside of thanking my subscribers and commissioners. More importantly, I find sitting in front of a screen, trying to…

Last Night's Nightmare

Last night's nightmare. I don't often have memorable nightmares. Night terrors and sleep paralysis are the things that usually disturb my sleep, but I thought this might be of artistic interest. There's a book at the library I used to work at meant to show kids the purposes of different kinds of te…

Attention All Subscribers So Far

I realized recently that I may have posted this entry, https://www.weasyl.com/journal/114119/important-story-announcement, at an inopportune moment, when most people were probably away on Christmas break. Basically, I'm giving you the opportunity to have your fursona/oc featured in chapters 3-5 of…

Update on Stories

So I thought I'd relax with the family this week, but given the boredom and lethargy that tends to produce, I'm heading back home down the road (literally, I live about six or seven miles from my parents' house) to get to work on my story. Unless it directly affects my work, I won't be posting much…

Important Story Announcement

I'll post this announcement again after I post Our Human Masks, chapter 2, since few people are likely to read it so close to Christmas. Attention all subscribers so far; I intend to represent my early experience with the furry fandom in Chapters 3 - 5. Because my experience has been entirely onlin…

I need some advice

In January, I plan to open commissions. I think I may simply do free slots rather than themed even though all you've seen of my contemporary art are furs yanking off their human disguises. So that might be a bit of a gamble. Still, it'll give me something to practice. What I wanted to know is this:…
