Interests
Aye, I'm back. I plan on making a few changes and adding some new artwork here very soon. To summarize the events of the last 6 months:

1. Job market is dry in my area, making finding any kind of work very difficult. So, it's time to rebuff my portfolio. The occasional odd-job fixing computers helped to cover the barest minimum, but even that has run thin.

2. My computer died a glorious, electrified death. The power supply fried every... single... component... in its death throes. So, now I'm starting from scratch. 5 years of work--poof! Aside from what I've got posted on here, there's nothing left.

3. My new computer kicks major ass, and it can run anything I throw at it with great speed and efficiency. Athlon64, 1GB of RAM, and a GeForce 6800. :) Now I've got the muscle to put some good stuff together, just as soon as I can rebuild my once vast library of tools and resources.

4. Hurricanes battered Florida, but we were lucky enough to have survived with very little damage, and we weren't long without power.

5. I got a Wacom Graphire 4x5 tablet and a Konica-Minolta DiMage Z1 digital camera for my birthday. Combined with my new PC, I have some great tools to bring together some interesting artwork. I'm pretty excited about it.

Let's get started!

Umm, I may be wrong, but by any chance have you cosplayed Nathan Drake for "CosplayDeviants" ? They mention a "Firebrand" and that "Explorer" is his debut photoshoot. Just curious :3

Thanks. :) I'll be certain to convey the message. She's really sick right now. Docs ordered 48 hours of bed rest and prescribed antibiotics and Tylenol-3 for her. Strep throat, a severe sinus infection, and a bilateral ear infection. :(

Oh wow, I hope she's better soon . A sinus infection alone is bad news, much moreso with all those other complications .
Take care =)
