It's been 5 years since I joined deviantart with this account, as of august 30th! I remember it was `jasonvelocity who convinced me to join back when I was just getting interested in digital art. It was definitely one of the factors in my pursuing communication arts as a career, and my own style has evolved partially because of influences I've discovered on this site. I've also met a ton of friends here. All in all, it was a good move and I don't regret a thing
Also I am surprised to find I'm almost at 400k pageviews O_O I won't offer a kiriban this time because I never end up having time to do them, but I wonder if the ding will coincide with my anniversary.
Still looking for somewhere to go once I leave college.. if I continue to improve I might (miiiight) be good enough to work for WotC, but I doubt they'd hire me right now. Still I think I could probably find work at a younger company. Trying to remain optimistic about it I can't really find a good way to work Thorns into my resume. Is it actual work or is it just the stuff of a hobby? I don't know.
Also, once I'm more freed up, I'm doing serious thinking about pursuing Madland in a formal way. My style has changed a lot since starting the comic, so I'd probably have to start over again, which I wouldn't mind too much. I'm still "mad" about the story (har har chuckles) maybe more so than any I've ever written, probably because I would get to draw a lot of kids fighting each other, monsters and dinosaurs, etc.
anyway that's all the news from the home front. back to work!
