I havn't had a lot of time to draw recently because of generally just going out and doing things ( so yeh, i'm still pretty busy every now and again )and whatever spare hours i get from time to time i spend lazing about or playing Mass Effect and just end up getting a bunch of dialogue with like, 5 minutes of actual shooting action. Bleh. For some reason I still feel compelled to play that game. Perhaps cause I was really investing my mind recently into a space story with Asakati in it.
It's going okay. I need alot of revision to do with the suit and everything, but I havn't thought too much about his papearence, and been mapping out the story in my head.I want to actually sit down and write it, but I want to also finish my actual website finally. Sometime. Someday.
I drew that yesterday. I sometimes forget how soothing and tranquilizing TegakiE can be. And it actually makes for a good medium for doing short comic/etc. in. I'm really close to doing a really really short one on there. It's so crisp.
Other than that it's been work and hanging out with the family. I got myself a really bitchin planner though and some of the best writing pens ever. So, I'm going to be sooooo organized this year. I think I did pretty good last year. I did quite a lot and acutally started moving on with what needs to be done. So this year I'm going to keep myself productive and move on even further. So, thats what I'm going to go do. Be productive. After my site is up, I'll probably be able to start drawing properly again.
Peace and love n whatev <3

Happy New Year everyone.
Was actually supposed to finish this for Christmas (obviously) but between work/christmas shopping and going out for dinner with the fam, I had nearly 2 hours every week to work on it durring the month of December. I'm happy with it though, and may turn it into a card next year if I still like it.
I think Antonio enjoys getting into the spirit of things.
This new year... well I have a lot of things I want to do. I'm doing my citizenship test on the 6th of this month. I'm sure I will pass... and after that we just have to get some shit together to show some people and they can be like " aiight, you coo, stay wit us yo."
This will mean that I have no worries anymore. I'll have my job, and not have to study for some strange test and tom will stop pestering me about these things.
I've grown alot this year. I don't sit around moping like an asshat anymore, crying about things past and acting like I'm lost. Because I'm not. I've got everything I've ever wanted and then some. The only thing I've yet to acheive is my everlasting goal of improvement in my work. Which...is on it's way. So here's some other stuff I've yet to post, that I've sketched over the days.
I did this one while sitting in bed waiting for Tom, then worked on it some more over the days after I started it. I'm pretty happy with this, Tom and his mother really like this one I think. He wants me to paint this one as well, but I'm not sure if I'll get along to doing that...maybe.
I also started this picture of Asakati, but never really got around to getting serious about it, though mind you I wasn't really planning to in the beggining anyway.
After a bit I have decided that I do actually want to do a space sotry with Asakati in it, because I love drawing him in space suits and things. He looks good in them. So, I will do that, and it's going to be a really bad ass story, I promise.
And now that I have nothing to worry about this year except working when I have to ( which isn't a problem, because I love my job. It's the most awesome thing ever and gives me the giggles forever), I can spend a good deal of time developing stories and getting shit done for real. I know I say this like, everytime, but it was always a case of, oh I dont have a job, let me get one, oh i have to study let me do that, but oh my stories, let me work on that but oh, my studies, but oh i need a job.
No more running around in circles.
This is why I'm so hyped for this year.
Well I best be off. Gotta do the getting ready stuff, Tom and I are off to a pantamime this afternoon. I hope it will be good, other wise, im going to be annoyed :c.
Keep it snazzy.
