Greetings!

Hello! Many apologies for my absence. I've had a hard time keeping up with everything so I just kind of.. stopped for a little bit. But I plan on catching up on here as best I can.

Question about Merch!

If I sold merchandise with a character like Aardy on it, how would you feel? I like the thought of doing pre-mades with my characters on them, since they’re pretty much the “mascots” of my art/image. But I don’t know how many people like the idea of having someone else’s fursona/personal OC on thei…

Attention Florida Furs (HELP!)

A few friends and I are desperately searching for a home for a cat, Greg. He's a 5-year-old manx who is neutered with (trimmed) claws. He prefers a home with no other cats, but if the owner is understanding and good with training, it should be fine. He should not be around any large dogs, however.…

Moving + Signal boost

Come Mid-late January, I’ll be moving out of my wife’s mom’s house and in with some roommates so I’ll be ~officially independent~ yaay! This move has been a long time coming, but the possibility of school (totally not happening any time soon) and a few other things have postponed it for a while. I…

Birthday, MFF, etc

So yeah I'm 24 now! My birthday was on the 1st of this month. I was actually sick on my birthday, so I didn't really do anything but lay around with my wife (which is a pretty nice way to spend a birthday anyway IMO). Then I was gone for a few days for my father-in-law's wedding! It was on a pirate…

Re: Last Journal

I just wanted to thank everyone who commented on my last journal! Your input and varying perspectives were really, REALLY appreciated and helped me a lot. Just wanted to make a separate journal stating this because though I've read them all, I really haven't been able to come up with adequate repli…

Opinions on DeviantArt/other art sites??

Everyone's been talking about Weasyl slowing down lately, and though I have no intentions of leaving this site right now, I wondered if anyone had opinions on any others? I used to love DeviantArt when I was first starting to post my artwork online, but I left and can't really remember why. Do many…

So, I'm not attending school this year

I wasn't able to gather sufficient funds and aid in time to make it to Sheridan this year, unfortunately. So, I'm stuck here again this year. Needless to say, I'll be applying next year with a lot more knowledge and time to prepare. I'll also be applying to more than just one school (dumb thing not…

Merch Sites!

I put these links in my profile section, but I thought I'd make a journal entry about them anyway. ~(UwU~) I now have pages up on Spoonflower, Storenvy, and Society6; I've had a couple people ask me about my Gastly pattern, so I put it up on Spoonflower to be bought as fabric or wrapping paper! I L…

Commissions OPEN + GoFundMe

So, college for me is coming up in August. I am extremely excited to attend, but finances are getting in the way and scaring me at this point. I am attending college out of the country (Sheridan in Canada) and I need to be able to prove that I can pay to get my student visa by June (just ONE month)…

I'm planning on opening for more commissions in a few days, BUT I have four pixel icons and I want to make a set, so I'm opening for two to be done fairly quickly. Examples include my current icon and these. $15 each. First com…

So, I'm married!

Long story short, my partner, Nettle and I have been planning on getting married for the past year or so. We've been in Lubbock, TX for the past week and decided that we'd take a day to drive over to New Mexico to get married (gay marriage is legal there, woo hoo!) So, we did that yesterday in ROSW…

Shipping Delays, Important!!

Something important came up a few days ago and I had to leave the state to accompany a friend who's dealing with a family emergency. It was extremely sudden, so I was not able to gather up and send out badges and charms before I left. At this point, we don't know when we'll be able to return home,…

A few of my pals who take commissions use Trello to keep track of their progress, so I decided to try it out! So, from now on you can check the status on your commission on my board: https://trello.com/b/2J6J7TK7/commissions

I spend a lot of the con in the AA, where I got to see and talk to a lot of folks (huge thanks to those who stopped by my table). I really enjoyed hanging out with my wonderful roomies and friends I haven't…

Hard Drive Died, Help!!

So for the past few months, I've been working really hard on preparing my portfolio for applying to school. So hard that I didn't really pay much mind to my computer's performance quickly declining, so I was extremely surprised when the hard drive crapped out last week! I'm not asking for computer…

Fresh Start

So, a lot of FA folks have revisiting since the downtime over there and I'm more than delighted to give this site another shot! Cleared out my gallery because I'm stupidly obsessive about consistency (and I like clean starts anyway). Big thanks to those who watched me previously and have stuck by d…
