I started working on my new comic series last week, I'm pretty excited about it! I put up some screen shots over on my Patreon page if you want to check 'em out here.The series is called "Devil Spy". It's a story about a human animal hybrid who finds a human (humans are believed to be extinct). There's some sci fi elements, but it's mostly a story of friendship. I hope you guys will love it! I'm about 3 pages into the prologue now, I estimate the prologue will be about ten pages long. I'm planning to put that all out at once and then the series will update weekly. 

I don't have another Split Screen book update just yet. I'm still waiting for that proof to come in the mail (hopefully today?). Almost everything is ready to go, the exception being I need to order the shirts and totes and get the books of course. I really want to start mailing out packages. I wish this whole process wasn't taking so long. :/

I've been doing a lot of thrift store shopping since Kelsey moved out. I have been finding a lot of awesome old Tupperware and stuff. I am super into vintage kitchen things from the 70's and 80's if you didn't know. I started a group on Facebook called "Portland Vintage Tupperware Party" where I post pics of things I find at stores so locals can go buy them if they want. So far I am the only person in town remotely interested in it, haha. But I've been trying to budget my spending since I need new art equipment; mostly a new tablet and new computer and they're super pricey so I need to save up. Hopefully I will make a little money at the conventions this year. It would be awesome if I could buy them by the end of the year so I could write them off on my taxes as business expenses, since I have to file because of the Kickstarter anyway. We'll see. 

My external hard drive stopped working a couple days ago, which is super disappointing. I bought it from Apple when the hard drive in my computer died last year and started regularly backing up my laptop. I brought it in to the store to test whether I needed a new cable or a new drive. Unfortunately it proved to be the latter. Balls. I went with a Seagate one since they're a more recognized brand (the previous one was G-Drive) and it has a two year warranty so I better get to filling that shit out, haha. That's another $89 no one wants to spend. I wonder if I can write that one off as a business expense...

Ash and I got back into walking again last week, but not really into the gym again yet. It's slow going and my legs are sore, it takes so little time to get out of shape again! I set up the guest bathroom (that used to be Kelsey's) as a fancy bath taking room complete with pirate and fish themed decor, haha. So that's good for soaking sore legs, right? Yarrrr! Speaking of which, Kelsey's cat Gabe who was here for about 2 weeks after K moved out has finally been moved to her new place. I feel like we really bonded over the pat 2 weeks. I will miss him, I know Sweet Spots misses him already (he was opening up all the bathroom cabinets last night looking for him). Too bad K didn't want to take Marbles...

In other news, I had to bake a cheesecake for a raffle to benefit the Out to Pasture farm sanctuary. The winner said it was the best vegan dessert he's ever had and that I should open a bakery. I probably would if I wasn't drawing comics, haha. Anyway, that's all for now! Let me know how your week went!

How's the book coming along since I last talked to you?

(By the way, I'm feeling really down right now.)

The book is mostly finished but I am still working out the technical details. Sorry you're feeling down. :(

Do you take requests, art trades, or point commissions by any chance?
Jaymzeecat Featured By Owner May 4, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
No, sorry! I occasionally do paid commissions, but I am working on finishing my book right now so I don't have any free time. :( Thanks for the interest!

That's alright. :)
