Haven't updated in what feels like forever, but honestly nothing's changed.

Still haven't heard back about the Media Director job. They still haven't hired anyone, so I'm not sure what the hold up is. I'm pretty much a part of the church's media team however and have been helping them out for the past few weeks filling in whatever positions they need me for. That should be a huge advantage for me if they ever decide to do an interview. I pretty much know how the services are run now. I just hope they make a decision (in my favor or not) soon. I'm tired of waiting around. I seriously feel like I'm in some sort of strange limbo where nothing's happening in my life. If I don't hear something by the end of next week I'll get in touch with them. 

As far as art goes, I've done nothing. Every time I think about sketching or doodling, I'll find something else to do. I know exactly why I do it. I'm afraid my attempts are going to be utter crap and I'll get super disappointed. I know the only cure is to fight through it, but it's tough sometimes. 

I'm considering taking a shot at streaming once I get back into a groove (or to possibly find my groove). I have a feeling having an audience will motivate me to get some work done. It would take a little time for me to get comfortable with it and to possibly work the kinks out, but I think it'll be fun. 

Hopefully something will have happened by the next time I update.

Been doing art on my own for a few years now. I recently obtained an AAS in Visual Communications. I have plans to go back to school in the fall to work on a BA in either Studio Art or Graphic Design. Until then I'm just going to go with the flow.

Here you will find mostly fanart of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic as well as sculptures. I may do other stuff from time to time, but ponies will be the main focus as of right now.

If you need to get in touch with me regarding commissions or other questions, the fastest way is through email.


Current Residence: Alabama
Favourite genre of music: Rock, Jazz, Blues
Operating System: OSX Snow Leopard
MP3 player of choice: iPod/iPhone
Favourite cartoon character: Again, too many to pick just one.
Personal Quote: "Life's too short to dwell on the small things."

Will ALWAYS be safe for work.

Do you take requests?

I'm sorry, but I don't. I barely have enough time to do my own personal stuff let alone requests or even commissions.

It's something I'm trying to fix though.

Thank you sooooo much for posting that video on your tumblr. I think you just catapulted me a few months further along in learning to draw.
