Sleepy Icons - PWYW
So I’ve had a couple requests to open up icon commissions in the style of my current icon.
Larger preview here -> https://www.weasyl.com/submission/541810/
If you’d like one, I should have a day between finishing commissions and work to spend on a Pay What You Want stream for these. They take a couple hours to complete each, so the spaces for them will be limited (but distributed in a fair and random manner - assuming there’s more than a couple takers).
If you can’t make it to the stream, I may also open up a limited queue for them, but it all really comes down to fitting the time needed to finish them between finishing commissions (which have priority right now).
I’ll post details on a date for the PWYW stream soon.

Back to Art
With my big contract done for the next few months, I’m getting back to the more enjoyable craft of illustration. There’s still a sizable commission pile to get through and a lot of very patient clients who will be receiving their art very soon. If you’re one such person, and you’d like to change what you’ve already requested, now’s the time to let me know, otherwise I’ll be pushing through them and streaming the work when I can.
Once I’ve done at least a few of them, I’ll also be drawing up the next (and final online) page of DSV Nautica. I’m still considering whether to continue the paperback version of it. There’s been little interest in it relatively speaking. I suppose I could see about making it worth while through the myriad of new funding options that have come to light over the past couple years. If that sort of thing interests you, I need to know.
In other news, I took a tumble on the ski hill and separated my right shoulder. There’s a chance that I’ll need surgery and I’m not sure just how much that’s going to affect my ability to draw. As it is right now, I can still draw and I’m assuming that shoulder surgery might take me down for a couple days to a week. The bottom line being that I’m probably going to draw regardless of the pain.
A quick 16 bit animation I put together of my character for the little RPG themed sequences in the upcoming Gnar Days 2.

Someone requested a hand tutorial, so I rambled. I didn’t even get to everything I would like to, so here is a part!

A Formal Apology to Fur-Eh!
Over the past couple years I’ve been a part of the conception and realization of an amazing convention here in my hometown. It was something a few of us talked about for the better part of a decade that came to fruition through the hard work and dedication of a few locals that I was lucky enough to count myself amongst.
I speak in past terms because it is through my absence and empty promises over the past few year that has cost Fur-Eh! the print and video advertising it deserves. I have failed my peers in this regard and I am sorry. Apologies, however, won’t turn the clock back. Fur-Eh! deserves better.
As such, while I’m not sure if I ever fully held the title, I’m stepping down in my duties as Fur-Eh!'s advertising and print designer.
Excuses, valid or not, also do not change the fact that I’ve let down my peers. I’m sorry I couldn’t be, or deliver, all I promised. Fur-Eh! is a successful and cherished part of the local community and growing every year; already, there are qualified volunteers who are stepping up to do the job I could not and I wish them and the organizers of Fur-Eh! nothing but the best. Despite my shortcomings, thank you for allowing me the privilege of being a part of this adventure.
