Wow. Nearly a whole year.

I am pretty ashamed of myself for not submitting anything during all that time! Whatever I happened to my New Years Resolution of submitting at least one piece a month, eh? (Personally, I like to hide behind the fact that I submitted a 14-page comic, so technically I'm covered for 14 months. Right? Right??)

Anyhoo, I worked quite hard and quite quickly on this cover submission for BAAU Down Volume 10! The theme of spunky anime girls wielding larger-than-life art tools lives on! This time, the modern wacom tablet/pen combo is replaced by more traditional mediums like colored pencils, erasers, and even crayons.
I hope that it gets selected to represent the anthology!


Seeing as I'm already writing a journal entry, I guess I'll take some time to reflect on how I filled my time this past year.
Let's see... Soon after the BAAU Down 9 story submission, I broke up with my longtime boyfriend and found new love!! New loves are always exciting--much to explore and discover about the new person and realize some things about yourself as well.
This experience allowed me to get into things like motorcycling, marathon training, navigating the new world of having a roommate, and watching lots and lots of movies.
Meanwhile, work at Namco Bandai was ramping up considerably! Granted there were fun and exciting conventions to attend, including E3 and some voice over sessions down in Burbank, which are always an absolute blast!
Hours at the office got longer as the days got shorter, and for a good while there, I was spending some nights a week sleeping under my desk during crunchtime. (I'm now more properly equipped with pillows, blankets, and even a fancy game controller-shaped eye mask.)
There was one morning after a night at the office that I got hit by a car while on my bicycle, but fortunately I walked away relatively unscathed.
I had a wonderful Xmas vacation visiting my twin up in Oregon followed by some days in Reno, skiing! I was happy to find myself dominating the slopes so easily after years away!
My last exciting trip was spent in Cambodia and then Vietnam for the amazing New Years holiday of Tet! Learning elementary Vietnamese for a few months really paid off and now Vietnam has a very special place in my heart.

As spring begins to creep up on the horizon, I find myself blessed with opportunities to draw, and I look forward to spending time nurturing this talent once again!

Here's to a (belated) new year!
