Ooh I feel so bad for going so long without an update . . .
I’m still alive. Really. Between working and school, I just haven’t found myself able to do much as far as comics go lately. Bear in mind I haven’t forgotten about Starcrossed, it’s just been on hiatus. I can’t say exactly when it will resume, but I’m trying my best to get back to it as quickly as I can. Right now I’m using my spare time to do some writing on it and some much needed character development. While working on chapter 2 I noticed how much I needed to go back and flesh some things out. So hopefully the time I spent writing will be well spent.
As for real life I am currently employed as an early education substitute teacher. I’ve been taking care of kids ages 1-5 lately. It’s cool and all, but not something I want to do for a living. I was a bit embarrassed because I went into a job taking care of one year olds without knowing how to change diapers. Luckily they were patient with me and taught me how. The skill has shown to be quite . . . handy when dealing with infants and toddlers. Bleh.
My birthday was last Tuesday (April 14). I am now 25 years old. It’s kind of a weird feeling in a way. I got some Nintendo DS games, some plants to add to my herb garden, money, and a delicious meal. It was the first time I’ve had Middle Eastern food but I have to say I quite like it.
Also another reason for lack of pages for a while is my laptop crapped out on me, consequently taking Photoshop with it. It’s ok though. It was technically a rental laptop that I needed in a bind. Plus I really hated using Vista. The only thing that sucks is that it couldn’t wait until my semester was over. I’m currently looking for a new harddrive to get my old Mac up and running until I can afford a new laptop. Right now I’m on my esteemed colleague, Rumor’s, computer which has GIMP (a sort of Photoshop freeware) which I haven’t had much chance to mess with yet.
Also I added a new pic to the fanart section! It’s actually part of an art trade between me and my friend from Deviantart, P-Sanchez. We’ve both been watching each other’s work for a couple of years now on DA and have done quite a few art trades in the past. His work is awesome and has gotten better over time. Do stop by and check his work. I love his Vincent the Third comic.
Once I get my half of the trade done, I’ll post a link here.
