Your random homicides are beginning to get me slightly peeved  
At some point, I suppose I should stop holding it in and make a big ol' post on my thoughts about current things, especially stuff like government. Buuuut I'm having trouble getting around to it, considering it would mostly consist of rage and despair, and I don't much like talking about that in spaces like this. I seem to be of the (perhaps rather unhelpful) mind that if I stick my fingers in my ears and go LA LA LA it'll go away. 8| But yeah. Maybe I will rant on that later.

I'm also rather ehhh at the moment because the job that I had been interviewing for and thought I had a good chance at suddenly went poof. This always seems to happen to me...and I'd be lying if I said that this time I wasn't really disappointed. There's opportunities in the future, but y'know, it'd be really nice if that opportunity came through now for once. -_-

But I still have my friends, and family, and my health, and for all those things I'm grateful.

So, I've got a whole buncha new things both with LP, All Hearts and waking-up drawings to share...







Finished off the rest of the Wonderland characters for All Hearts:

All Hearts - Queen of Hearts, White Rabbit, Cheshire Cat and Doorknob )

A bunch more waking-up drawings!

Under-covers drawings 253-261 )

Drawing: All Hearts, Secret Santa gift, and now reindeer story expression sheets

Writing: Tags and plottings, and reindeer story script...so yes, I've started in on that more.

..."And I will be a GOD of this new blog!"  
First off: new Lunargyros page! ...Well, not quite, actually it's just a cover for chapter two. But part of it was me messing around in Painter Effects. It's a fun program and can do all kinds of cool things that PS can't, but it doesn't seem to like dealing with large files like I'm used to working with. D: I'll need to play around with it more.

Ohhhh! I SO FINALLY FINISHED that KH AMV that I'd been wanting to make forever and ever and wasn't able to because I didn't have the correct file formats! With huge thanks to [livejournal.com profile] voodoobob, who deserves a thousand years' worth of cookies, I was able to get those files and finish it! *CELEBRATION* You can see the finished AMV here.

My new job started on Monday (technically Friday kinda, but that was more just intro and seeing how things worked). It's working out fine so far, as well as a reception job can, anyway. I just wish it didn't go until 6:00, since then I don't get home until around dinnertime and since after-dinner is usually "wind down" time for me in terms of art stuff -I like to go internetting or draw on fannish things during then- it's a little tough trying to fit in all the other drawing stuff I need to do. I've been slacking on stuff like revising those pages so that I can send them away and gift arts...but I must remind myself that the faster I send arts away and see if publisher-persons like them, the faster I get a job I like! I just wish I had the same energy when I get home as when I start out the day...

So I barely got any comic reivision work done between lawling my face off at KHFFR, aaaand I FINALLY FINISHED DEATH NOTE OMG. YESSS. Read the last four chapters!

And now, since I have at last finished, here are my thoughts on yaoi Death Note:

WARNING! Lots of ending spoilers inside! )

Urk, that was long! But with that kind of story, I guess I can't help but be talkative. XD NOW HURRY UP AND FINISH THE REST SO I CAN TALK WITH SOMEONE ABOUT IT, [livejournal.com profile] ghettopeach and [livejournal.com profile] sir_snarksalot!

Drawing: Revised more of LG! Also worked a bit more on the doujin yesterday.

Writing: Haven't had the chance to write much yet, but maybe a sporking's on the horizon?

Hired?!?!?!one  
First off: the last page of chapter one for Lunargyros was posted on Tuesday! Cover image next week, weee! I need to do some other stuff for it, like LJ icons. Too much to draaaaw...

Also...I have a job tomorrow! That went kinda weirdly.

Went into the temp agency place today to basically meet with the client I was supposed to do reception work for. Building contractors in Agoura Hills? And while she was very nice, she kinda...scared me off of the job unintentionally. :D;; It sounded like a lot more responsibility than I wanted in a job I didn't really care about. And basically, I was honest and said I would leave the reception position for a job that guarantees no money, no benefits and no real security in the slightest CAUSE THAT'S SMART comics, if it came up. And they wanted someone willing to be a bit more permanent. Okay!

The moral of this story: don't be honest to anyone in business! Especially the people interviewing you! ♥

But! I got an email from a church friend of my family who said they had a receptionist position at the travel agency where he works. So I called and he was all, "You want a job?" and I went "Y SHOR" and he went "Can you start tomorrow?" and I went "Uh...OKAY" and, um, there you have it. At least I don't have to frecking interview for this one since he knows me already.

It'll be less monies for this job than the one I bombed. :/ Buuut, I do get benefits right off the start, and that to me is a bigger plus than just a higher paycheck. HOORAY FOR INSURANCE. Also, since this dude has known me since I was little and knows that drawing is my passion, I feel a little less worried that he'll go pink slip on me if he sees me drawing during slow hours. So, uhhh...here's hoping I can actually comic a bit at this new job? :D;

And hey, I also applied for a PA position at Nickelodeon, so if I'm lucky maybe that'll go somewhere, too.

And now I'm going to go actually frickin' register for Anime LA already and then do something that I want to work on...

Drawing: Finished some LG pages and doujin pages, almost done with two giftarts, and pencilled the revised LG page, but there's still so much more to do...
