I am still quite active here, but still trying to get better on posting up new artwork. I am thankful for all the faves and comments on my work. Also, on the job hunting front I have not found anything just yet. I have applied for many jobs just have not heard back.
Anyway, besides that stuff
and I just got a new cat. It is a small nine month old.
Still not working on artwork as much as I would like to. I have to really get in the habit of setting time aside to work on artwork.
Another thing I am not good at is finishing a project after starting it. I tend to get half way and kinda move on to something else.Helping Plug Friends:
Just passing some news in my own little way.
At the moment I am not doing commissions, but several of my friends and fellow deviants I watch are.
So here is a little list of some artists taking commissions:

I hope to get more linked up here just have not had the time.
If you read my journal and want to be added to/removed from this list just send me a note.
P.S. Also check out the comic Shadows of Oblivion
Get Shadows of Oblivion on ComiXology

link to find the other ways of picking up this cool comic.
Check out the Kickstarter by The product he's created is called the Nomad Art Sachel.
It's perfect for any artist, check it out and give him some well deserved support on this
Still no contest news to pass along.Artwork:
My project list shorten to reflect what I am currently working on.
I am getting into doing vectors more and more. I hope to keep learning new things and pushing myself. The current vector I am working on a Shelby Cobra and the rest of the classic cars for that project. Then later I plan on a DMC DeLorean. Although, a new project from my brother of his truck, a Chevy LUV, will slow down progress on the Cobra and other projects a little bit. Still working on the Chevy LUV. It has been a fun project so far. I hope to work on it more this week along with a few other projects.
I have been really bad at keeping with sketching regularly. It is a very on and off thing with me, but if I want to get better I have to make it a more common practice to draw more often. I also want to get into maybe trying some ink washes again. I am thinking a Punisher ink wash fanart would be fun. Been bad about getting to ink washing as well sorry, but still want to get into it. Hopefully, I can get moving forward. I have almost all the things needed to start doing ink washes again, so hopefully I can get to that soon.Story:
My story is moving along slowly still. I am working on Chapter Five. Focus on research again.
I hope to work on it sometime soon with my art projects getting more of my attention lately,
which they should since I am an artist first, and writer second.
I started reading William Gibson's second novel Count Zero. Still slowly reading the second book
in the Wheel of Time series, which is taking a long time to read between everything else I do.
Also, the book just has parts that seem to drag forever. Very slow reading at times for me.
Still adding books that I want to read at some point including books from C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien.
Also, I would like to get back to reading comics again since my setting deals with
people gaining super powers. I have read a few Spider-man and Punisher comics.
I am thinking of reading through my Gen 13 and Catwoman comics. Still have not done.
That is about it for now.Featured Artists:

All new features for the new year.
Thanks for taking the time to read my long journal.
