It's been a while since I wrote a journal entry (not sure if anyone reads them either?) But I thought I'd go ahead and let you all know what's been going on and coming up.
First off, our very own Rust LARP (steampunk/fantasy genre) is about to have it's third Event this weekend. Everyone seems to really like it! It's been a lot of fun working out the kinks and details with all the players. It's just going to get better! dressing in costume, battling with foam swards and Nerf guns, and telling great stories...it's just awesome!
Secondly, the commissions keep coming and I'm swamped but happy! Thanks to everyone for being so patient. More commissions coming soon. Had to put a halt on Cyburg due to the commission workload, getting Rust underway, and the peak season coming up at the Blick warehouse but I will NOT abandon a life's pursuit! Crash and Burn WILL LIVE!!
As far as personal stuff, I won't bore anyone with all the dramatic details (I'm not really that type) but after a REALLY bad year I'm coming to terms with where I am. Some VERY close friends drifted away after some terrible events happened that shook us to our cores but I found the strength to build my world back up from the ashes and pain. I'm moving on stronger than ever but bearing more deep scars. I think my anger had something to with it...both the drifting away and the healing. I've had several tough times in my life but my sorrow has always turned to rage and that has somehow kept me in this world more than once. Healthy? Maybe not...but it works. So does the humor that comes out of some of the commissions. I'm starting to feel like Crash again.
Anyway, I'm stronger and ready to get to work! If you're interested, listen to the song "The Day Is My Enemy" by The Prodigy and you'll actually hear what's going on in my head...pure determination to be the best I can be!
Thanks to everyone who visits my gallery and favorites any of my artwork. It really means a lot to me that you guys still like the stuff that I do. Without that support I think I'd simply lose it completely. Thanks so very much!!
