Willem 127 by Jaymzeecat
Willem 127
Here is your super overdue Willem update! I hope it looks okay. I am still getting used to working on this gigantic screen, haha. Also, I hope the posters aren't too distracting. I didn't have the desire or energy to draw some, haha.

Hey guys, I have a Willem update for you today! I am hoping to be getting back on track soon, in the meantime I'm just going to put up pages once they're done rather than wait for specific update days. I am planning in the future once my production goes up again that I can have a better schedule, but for now this will have to be the way it is. I'm going to start working on the next page of Devil Spy tomorrow and with any luck I can work on my Ocarina of Time fan comic a bit next week.

Here's the boring health update:  I think I told you guys last week that I was having chest pains and nausea. The nausea went away for a while so I just chalked that up to one of those dumb things that happens sometimes without explanation or whatever. My doctor told me if the nausea resurfaced, I should try lowering the does of one of my medications. The chest pain is still sticking around unfortunately. I woke up Monday or Tuesday morning because it hurt so bad and when I tried to move, my upper back was in even more pain than my chest. So I went to the hospital, had another EKG and an X-Ray and some labs. The EKG showed the same thing which the doctor referred to as a "right bundle strain" so now at least I know the name of it. He told me not to worry about it, but how can I not? So, the good news is I'm not dying (I guess) but I have no explanation for my symptoms. The ER doctor and my PC doctor both said they think it's muscle strain. I fail to see how I did that in my sleep or why I am continuing to have chest pain every day, but whatever I guess. My nausea has returned so I lowered my medication. And I've been going to the gym again for the past two weeks, hopefully that will magically cure me, haha.
 
I saw some movies this week: I rented Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. It was okay. I feel like they really missed an opportunity not having Joseph Gordon Levitt play Dwight though. Like, if they couldn't get Clive Owen back... and they already had Joseph Gordon Levitt... he would have been a much more convincing younger Clive Owen than Josh Brolin. In the first movie, Dwight seemed fast on his feet and street smart, which played really well against Marv who's pretty much just a grunt. But Josh Brolin played the part like Dwight was just another Marv. I didn't even realize until three quarters of the way through the movie that he was supposed to be the same character from the first movie. Also, I wasn't expecting to see Lady Gaga in the movie and that made me cackle and roll around. I went to the theater to see Interstellar and Big Hero 6. Interstellar was emotional and interesting. I would recommend it. I don't want to say too much about it and give anything away. If you like Christopher Nolan movies you will probably like it. Big Hero 6 was fantastic. If you like superhero stuff, definitely go see it. The characters and city design warm the Japanese part of my heart. I really want to do some fan art for the movie soon. The only other thing I did this week was play my Sims game a little. It was about as exciting as it sounds, haha. 

Also, I just got my Link Amiibo in the mail and he's pretty bad ass. I am going to try to get some decent pics of him later. :)

That's all for now, let me know how your week was!

New Workspace by Jaymzeecat
New Workspace
So, I feel really awful that it's been two weeks with no new updates. I have been having some health issues, nothing truly serious but enough to make working on my comics slow and difficult. But I finally got a much needed new computer. I was able to pay for most of it with Patreon support, my Kickstarter for Split Screen, and commissions you were all willing to help me out with! Thanks SO MUCH for your generosity! I am in the middle of working on the next Willem update and I've included some images of my new workspace(s). It's been interesting working on such a large screen (compared to my laptop). I am learning how to not overshoot my lines! Haha. I am hoping to get the page up by the end of the week and start working on a new update for Devil Spy. Thanks for hanging in there, and thanks so much for the support! :)

Hey guys, I just wanted to drop some lines and let you know what's going on with updates. I got a new computer a couple of days ago and I'm in the process of getting it set up so I can work primarily at my desk (since it's a desktop computer). Getting my files to the iMac from my Macbook is proving to be more difficult than I anticipated. I knew when I started that I had the option of adding everything from my Macbook to the new computer using it's Time Machine backup, which is really easy to do. My reservation with doing that is that my Macbook has always had some stupid quirks that I didn't want to get passed onto the iMac. For instance, for as long as I've had this Macbook, the autocorrect spelling feature has never worked. Even after I replaced the hard drive. Anytime I have a typing error, I just get a red underline even though the autocorrect feature is checked. It's not a huge deal or anything, but it would be a nice feature that should work. So I was going to go the route of Migration Assistant instead and just pick and choose files to share with the new machine wirelessly. It was a good idea in theory, haha. I was unable to get Migration Assistant to work because it says my Macbook needs to update to the latest OS, which is odd because both the new computer and my old one have Mavericks. So I tried to update the Macbook to Yosemite anyway, but it refuses to upgrade because it says I have 2 updates that are incompatible (it's showing it has something to do with like iPhoto and iMovie or something like that) and gives no explanation how to fix it. >_< So Migration Assistant was out of the question. I ended up getting my files from the Time Machine backup, and as predicted, the autocorrect feature on the iMac now does not work. Now I'm wondering if I'd be better off restoring the thing back to the factory settings and starting over, but then how do I get the files onto the new computer? Sigh. If any of you have knowledge of these issues, let me know. I have tried Google and not come up with any solutions. So, updates on on hold until I can get this stuff figured out.

In the meantime I'm working on some Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds traditional fan art. I finished the game a few days ago and found it very enjoyable. I'm not great at video games, which is probably why I replay a lot of old games that I don't find too challenging. When the games are too hard, I just get frustrated and don't want to continue playing them. I thought ALBW was just the right amount of challenge for me. There were a few parts that I got frustrated with but for the most part, the game was pretty easy. I got my ass handed to me by Yuma at the end of the game because I didn't realize there were armor and sword upgrades I was supposed to get so I spent a lot of the later part of the game grinding and looking for Master Ore and shit. Then it was pretty easy. I think my favorite part was the Treacherous Tower where you can battle fifty floors of enemies and earn prizes. I liked all the character designs in the game. Those Lion centaur guys that breathe fire are a bunch of assholes though. 

I went to my doctor yesterday as I haven't been feeling well for the past month and it has really slowed down my comic production. I have been nauseas for several weeks but I have had long stints of nausea in the past so I wasn't too concerned about that. The more pressing issue (no pun) was that I had been experiencing chest pressure and my heart just generally being a shit head. Flip-flopping around and beating fast, making me winded at even the slightest activity like walking up the stairs. I sat down one night to eat a piece of toast or something and my heart just started beating like crazy and I was like 'I know I'm not that excited about this toast.' And it's making me tired... not like I'm about to fall asleep... more like I will be in the middle of something and just suddenly run out of steam and have to stop and relax. Anyway, the doctor had me get an EKG done which came back abnormal. We don't really know at this stage what's wrong, so I have a bunch of testing/X-Rays and things I have to do. I'm not going to worry about it too much yet. It could be something super simple like anemia, I wont know until I get the results of my labs. So, comics will likely be sporadic for a while. It really just depends on how much work my body is willing to let me do. I will keep you guys posted.

All New Cat Factor by Jaymzeecat
All New Cat Factor
I just finished reading Volume 1 of "All New X-Factor". I might've read it sooner if I had known there'd be cats, haha. This is the my first attempt at drawing Gambit and Quicksilver so I hope it's okay. 

This is a 'just for fun' drawing I did while I am not feeling well. It was pretty good coloring practice, it seemed like it took a long time to complete, haha. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it. :) I should have comic updates for you in a week-ish.
