So for at least half of last year, I did not have a functional computer.
First world problems, I know, especially since I had been gifted an iPad a couple of years ago. I was dubious of it, using it mainly for Facebook (which my old computer tended not to run well), but losing the computer forced me into a crash course of learning to use the iPad for everything, especially the camera. Because I could not connect the iPad to my printer/scanner, that lost me both the ability to scan my art, and to get at my camera's SD card. It's been obnoxious, even if there are greater problems in the world. Don't get me started on politics.

Anyways, thanks to the graciousness of my in-laws, I am now writing this from my Christmas gift. It's a refurb, because that means Windows 7, and I lost my old pirated Photoshop copy so I'm just learning how to use the Gimp, but I could not be happier anyway! I've updated a few of my art uploads from last year because they were slightly crappy photos of the art rather than scans, and I'll be uploading stuff from this past year, because I finally can. 

In other details, our roommates moved out this fall, which has it's good and bad points, but part of the good is it means the opportunity to turn the computer room into a proper man cave. My version of this means it's essentially a small library but at one end I have my computer, and writing and some of the art supplies, and at the other end a big crafting table with all the messier art supplies (glue, foam, dremel tool, soldering iron, wire, saws, etc.). This last year I've been getting more heavily into cosplay, with the build of my own Mad Max costume, and a still in-progress Furiosa arm for my girlfriend. There may be more 3D art on this gallery in the future, although I'll always come back to drawing and painting because I always do.

With all the crap that's gone on this past year, my personal life has been surprisingly good, so I'm trying to focus on the positives without turning a blind eye to what's happening in the public sphere.
Stay safe everyone, may this year be better than the last!

I'm not an artist for a living, but I sell my artwork, prints, and commissions both online and in person, and I've done freelance graphic design and puppetry (puppet design and performance both). I have a graphic design degree and what I learned getting it has been worlds of useful, but the piece of paper itself never did me much good.
I draw a lot of fan art, when I should be working on my original characters and comics instead.

Super late, just wanted to say thank you since you seem to be wishing me Happy birthday every year! I'm horribly inconsistent on DA, but I do stalk your work...

Heh heh. Yeah... it's just a quirk of mine. I like to see how many birthday wishes I can pile up. :D

Hello, friend! I'm not going to beat this around the bush, so I'll just ask. Do you still RP Gargoyles?
