Hi, my name is Patty and I love art. I was known as "keirajo" over on Fur Affinity, but I have chosen to leave that site permanently as of April 30, 2015. About my username..."Keira-Jo" was an Echidna female I created for a Sonic the Hedgehog fan club back in 1996. When the fan club disbanded I used her in fan-fiction I wrote. She's been a big part of my life for a very long time, so I often use her name or image as my avatar when I am online anywhere.

So, summer has been summer and has been HOT. Again I'm going another year of regretting not getting an air conditioner and saying to myself "I'll get one next year"--which I've done for like nearly ten years now. wry laugh At the start of summer I always think........well, I survived last summer, I can survive again--and regret not having air conditioning all summer long. XD

I still doodle in my sketchbook............and I really need to scan some of those things. But electronics and heat don't work well together, so I keep putting it off. But............I do want to do a really nice, traditional, full-on effort for a birthday drawing (I will probably take a photo, because I'm gonna use glitter and stuff). Because, birthday is coming up and really fast--Friday, in fact. HOLY COW, I'll be 44 by the end of the week...........I'm so freakin' old. XD

I don't have much plans for my b-day itself............I have a mammogram scheduled that day. Yay? And I will probably buy an ice cream cake, as I usually do. Even though I should be eating better. BUT IT'S MY BIRTHDAY, DARN IT!!! Over the weekend (Sunday-Tuesday) my sister is taking me to the St. Louis Zoo as a birthday gift. It's a zoo I haven't seen yet and is supposed to be really nice. I'd just kind of hinted that I wanted to go to the zoo for my birthday............and I was assuming a day trip to Brookfield Zoo (Chicago), which we've been to several times.

I'm still very happy writing Transformers fan-fiction and posting at Archive of Our Own. I get lots of kudos (faves) on what I post, occasional comments..............I kind of laugh wryly that it's more faves than I get on my artwork on any site I've been on. Which, I think proves, that writing is my true talent. I've always known that, but now I kind of have proof, really. It's been, honestly, really nice to write again--and to be able to share my writing with more than a handful of friends/pen-pals.

But, darn it, I wish I could draw I could draw covers for my stories. sigh

There's just not enough time or talent for all the things I love............. headdesk

How has summer been for you all? Hanging in there, despite the heat? Any vacations planned? :)

          Those can be difficult to deal with in the aftermath--good luck!

    So I went ahead and got me a nice set of grayscale markers because darn those expensive color pencils xD

    I'll be working on a lot of ATCS--mainly little sets with pokemon and their evolutions. Do you want a set for 'mons (or ocs) for your birfday? :D
