Yeah, that's kind of lame on my part. But to be honest, not a whole lot has happened in that time except work. Still working at that local print shop doing signs, prints, and wraps. It's not bad, but it can get a little soul crushing at times. I really miss sitting down for hours on end and drawing stuff for myself. It's hard to do that with a full-time job. Especially one where I'm doing graphic work. When I get home in the afternoons after staring at Illustrator and Photoshop all day, sitting at my computer and working on art is one of the last things I feel like doing and that can get a little depressing at times.

I'm trying to get back into it though. I've been getting that itch again, but my drawing skills are super rusty and I have no idea what kind of art I want to make. I believe I'll figure it out soon enough.

Anyway that's where I've been for the past half-year. I wouldn't get any hopes up for any type of regular artwork or updates. But know that I haven't gone anywhere and am trying to get back into drawing.

Been doing art on my own for a few years now. I recently obtained an AAS in Visual Communications.

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.

Hey, just letting you know I'm still trying to perfect it.

My eldest brother, a musician/writer/etc., thinks Daughter of the Moon has, "The sickest progressions he's ever heard." 

Hope you get some time to do some music again, because my playlist could use more of your style. (And my fingers could use more amazing/fun songs to learn!) :)

Let me know if the link doesn't work. :P
