Passion and Work and Adulthood

TWIDI will celebrate its 10th birthday in March. A few months after, it'll be callupish's 16th birthday. That's how long these two passion projects have been with me. Currently, both of them are on the backburner. There's a thought loitering in my head for the past two years. The thought of how my relationship with art has changed since it became a career.

Upcoming Events

NONE FOR 2020

I finally got a copy of @reimenayee's Seance Tea Party and eventually I'll be able to actually read it.

Listen one of the reasons I advocate for lengthy schedules for artists is because publishers don't build in paid time-off for their freelancers and authors and stacked back-to-back projects can lead to injuries like the ones currently in my neck and shoulder

Comics is all fun and games until you have to study head angles and abstract them into your style -- then it's like, wth why is drawing so technical and difficult

so i was interviewed, and @buttermilkart got featured on @VulcanPost today πŸ₯² what a day. thanks to everyone who has supported and encouraged me so far - you the best πŸ₯ΊπŸ’– stay tuned for more!
