UPDATE as of 01/30/08:
My LJ is now ONLY Friends Only, save a few public posts I may do once in a while. I do this for privacy reasons.

Comment if you'd like, but there's no guarantee that I'll add you.

ALSO, if you are here for my fanart, please feel free to friend woogling, my new fanart-specific LJ :)

Wow I really don't understand why my cat is causing problems all of a sudden!!

He had to be confined to my room for the past week (since last Tuesday) because he got neutered and couldn't be around the other cats. He wasn't that happy about it but the roommates were at least taking him out to play a bit while I was at work, and I make sure spend time with him when I'm home.

Bad things started when he peed on my bed last Friday and also Saturday. I put on new sheets and everything both times. I thought he did it because I was out most of Friday night (only to come home to cat pee on my bed, which I had to change at 2:30 AM). and I stayed the night at Miranda's on Saturday (of course I left him food and water and cleaned his litter box though).

Today he was allowed to go out of my room and play with the other cats. However, roommate just texted me to say she caught him taking a dump on my bed. Aughhh!!!

So I just don't get why he is behaving so badly now! I clean his litter box daily and he knows how to use it too. I thought being able to go outside my room would make him behave better! But maybe I just have to close my room off from him and move his food and litter box out of there, if he seems to think of my room as a litter box. I have no idea how to get him to stop :/

Oops I guess LJ is sucking and everyone's started moving over to dreamwidth. I kept meaning to cross-post from dreamwidth to LJ but then I sort of forgot about that.
My dreamwidth is here though:


I'm mostly over at tumblr nowadays anyway but here's other places I'll be hanging out too in case you happened to miss them (though I doubt it considering the few people who read this LJ now, haha)!/taconaco (private, you'll have to send a request to read)

And I've been logging onto Skype occasionally these days (taconaco) if you ever want to chat! That is all~

I quite like how this drawing turned out (it was so I could have a Christmas avatar on tumblr but I decided to draw the whole thing out):

Couldn't help but laugh a bit while working on it. And I'm not sorry at all for doing it B)

I know I don't really post art here much but I am kind of pleased with this work in progress right now:
Hahaha it's another silly Sherlock AU (not started by me) where Sherlock's some sort of bird prince and John is a moth night watchman that lost one of his arms in a war. Either way, gay gay gay.
I busted out some bristol paper, and used my new wonderful Zebra brush pens to ink it. Also using a palette (from, maybe someday I'll try to make my own...) for coloring. I must say, think it looks pretty good so far! Obviously still rough though. And I'm trying to experiment with the lighting, no idea if I will be successful in the end :P.
Also, WINGS ARE HARD. Something I need to practice for sure.

In other news, my iPhone has died overnight a couple times in the past week after being pretty fully charged before I went to bed....kind of not good since that is my alarm to wake up in the morning. At least I've woken up on time! But yeah. I might need to go and turn off some sort of setting that might be draining the battery overnight :\

Ahhh today is like my Thursday. Just today and tomorrow to get through and then 4 day weekend for Thanksgiving! Woohoo!

Oh hai. Posting from my iPhone. Yes I've joined the smart phone world. If I'm not careful I'll never want to leave my bed...cuz when I wake up I can check the Internet on my phone!! Agh! I'll turn into one of the people in WALL-E.

So...favorite apps? I haven't gotten a not free one yet lol

Ahh so glad it's Friday. Took a sick day this week already, but so ready for the weekend.

Also still been keeping up with the exercise, which is great! Just lifted a 25lb package at work without a problem :)

Eh, guess that's all. No idea how long this thing will last for at half battery but don't wanna push it.

Does anyone else feel like there has been a mass LJ Exodus? I'm certain it's because of twitter and tumblr, places where it's expected to do lots of short updates. I used to use my LJ for this, but now nobody seems to do that. LJ consists of more long, thought-out posts. But now most of my LJ friends who I've had for years never seem to post anymore (and I can't believe I've had this thing for like...8 years. CRAZY). SADNESS.

...AND ON A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT NOTE, A TV show list for the year.

Series to start watching:
-Being Human (the UK version)
-Breaking Bad

To continue watching:
-Dexter (HAVE NOT SEEN SEASON 5 YET D: Was waiting on roommates to see season 3 and 4 but they haven't watched it in so long. I may just have to go on without them)
-Misfits Season 2 (just finished season 1 last night *_*. WANT TO DRAW ARTS FOR IT)
-more Skins? (finished season 2. WILL MISS THE OLD CAST. But...lesbians in the next seasons. TEMPTING)
-White Collar (only saw a few episodes of season 1)
-...A Very Potter Sequel (ok not a tv show but I still need to see it after seeing AVPM)

And then all the stuff that will have new episodes to look forward to asjdklfjaksdf (Psych, BBC Sherlock, 30 Rock, Community, etc)

Yay I had some actual work to do today (photo restoration)! now I have no more and am just bumming around for the last half hour til I get to go home. At least I got over my hangup and just logged onto tumblr again so I had a BIT more entertainment today.

Some reminders to myself:

-try working on your damn personal comic projects again>:T. Think about putting your silly self doodle comics in one collective place!

-make a new sketch blog on wordpress. Think of a better name for it (ugh so bad at names). And actually post stuff on it!

-update your portfolio website. That thing needs a new layout like crazy.

Basically: DRAW, BITCH, DRAW. And website stuff too.

...that is really it. BORINGBORINGBORING. Posted a couple drawings last night on tumblr though if you want to see:

Oh hey. Here's drawings done since the last time I did drawings. I drew stuff on and off the past week. OMG SO MANY SAPPY DUMB GIRLFRIEND THINGS I'M SORRYYYY. Also lots of cats with big eyes.

*EDIT* here is a couple I just did, expanded from some thumbnails I did at work:


Also, man. I sometimes really really wish I had gone to grad school for a different art degree. I guess it still isn't too late, but yeah. so bad at motivating myself to do art. Would really love to have gone to learn more.

LA LA LA HAPPY DOCTOR WHO DAY BTW!! (the anniversary of the first episode airing)

Aaaand back to drawing I guess!

I'm bad and didn't draw Friday OR Saturday :( :(. That's what I get for getting drunk on Friday night and being too out of it to draw, and then girlfriend hang-outs on Saturday.

Anyway, here's more drawings! Some Stupid Stuff That Happened In My Day comics, started on the doodle requests from this post: aaand more Gay Hitman VENGEANCE stuff.


WELP, more will be drawn tonight, so stay tuned for another post later this week!

(not OFFICIALLY signed up yet but whatev ;x)
See? Told you I was gonna try and draw a little every day. I figured I shouldn't do a DAILY post on LJ. But here is stuff from the last few days. Maybe I'll not f-lock my drawing posts this month, for once. Nothing to be ashamed of here (other than the fact that they're all pretty rough).

And nowwwww doodles doodles doodles. Here are some sketches/unfinished things from the last 3 days. Gay Hitman VENGEANCE, some drawings of me, yeahh.

SO RUSTY WITH POSES, GOODNESS :(. confidence/wary of my skills, still. Omg and the inconsistencies askfjasdklfjaslk. This is why I'm working on this character I CAN be more consistent when I draw them :P. Will do some fix-ups/computer inking for sure.

Also gonna be posting on my tumblr, too. Probably will do those actually daily.

IN OTHER NEWS. I exercised today. OH LAWDY. Sooo tired now.

Oh man!! Last night, x3_chan and I video-chatted on skype. BUT, instead of showing our webcams, WE SHOWED EACH OTHER OUR DESKTOPS WHILE WE DREW STUFF IN PHOTOSHOP. It was pretty freakin' sweet. Thank goodness for Camtwist (the program I use for ustreaming drawings and movies from my comp), and technology.

Sorry to make this a short post once more, but I just wanted to say that bidding has officially begun on the help_chile auctions! Here is my thread:
I've gotten one bid so far, wooo *v*. Just read the rules, and bid if you can afford to donate to a good cause :). It ends next Wednesday! I'll probably bring it up again once again before the end of it all as a reminder

OH YES! And I am going to a panel with the cast of Dexter tomorrow night with usagiko! EEEE MICHAEL C. HALL :D

No work today, but so many little things to do...walk the dogs, laundry, finish my homework for character design class, mail things off, work on commissions >_>. Mehh.

But for now? Reading more delightful Katie Forsythe fics while I enjoy my tea and muffin. Mmmm (I am very surprised I don't have a real tea-drinking icon. WTF ME. I DRINK SO MUCH TEA).

I have finally made a separate LJ to post my fanart!

woogling woogling woogling woogling woogling

It will consist of both finished drawings, as well as doodles (and THERE WILL BE SLASH and mature stuff)! Oh yeah, and it's going to be a lot of Star Trek right now but I'll just use it for whatever fanart I draw from here on out.

P.S. This is my brain these days:

Yeahhh. Totally stayed up til 3 last night drawing some stuff >_>....

WELP, got some puppy-sitting, some hanging out, and some drawing to do today. In a huge drawing mood because I have like this MOTIVATION TO IMPROVE and learned some new techniques yesterday. I don't want to let that feeling die right now. RAH RAH GO GO >:O

Just finished what was probably my first real swimming workout in a year or more.

Put on my two bathing suits and short shorts (for drag/water resistance), got my gear out (resistance paddles for my hands, kick-board, pull buoy, and flippers), and hopped on in. Rotated different exercises (just using arms, just using legs, regular swimming, just a little bit of sprinting)

I only swam for half an hour (nothing compared to the crazy workouts I used to do on swim team 3-5 days a week for 2 hours)...but wow. That felt SO EFFING GOOD.

I am really a swimmer, not a runner. I've been swimming all my life. My body is BUILT for it. Even today I still have ridiculous arms and thighs leftover from it, and broad shoulders. I really was never good at any other sport, but being in the water today just felt so natural, like I hadn't taken a break from it. Guess all the muscle memory is still there!

This is definitely something I need to continue with. I'd much MUCH rather swim than run any day, especially in the 80-degree weather these days. No way am I running in that. I really, really want my legs and arms to be more toned. Hopefully this will help, because damn, I was in some of the best shape of my life while on swim team. And I ate much more crappily back then too >:o

Phewww. Shower, dinner, True Blood, Hung, and somewhere in there...working on book illustrations again (even though I just want to keep reading CityLights ;_;..)

Yesterday I mostly just...drew stuff. A good day off. And Shawn and I watched Veronica Mars, which is great so far and I cannot wait to keep seeing more of it :). KRISTEN BELL IS ALSO REALLY ADORABLE HURRRFF.
Before that, I watched House Bunny. I thought it was really good for a cute-stupid-funny movie! I would actually totally buy it if it wasn't already available on Netflix streaming. Now I don't have to pay for it.

IN OTHER NEWS...another stupid comic thing. I JUST KEEP CHURNING THEM OUT WTF:
Aaand they get a little more lame every time
(I'm drawing new!Kirk lately because TOS Kirk's hair was giving me greif. BUT THEN I KEEP ON MAKING IT TOO SPIKEY. AND TOO ORANGE. BAH)

And some sticker heads I drew on extra sticker paper when I was still awake at 1:45 last night for no good reason:

I am so excited for tomorrow! erethesunrises is coming over! We are gonna geek out in general but among our activities, I am in the process of getting the Sixth ST movie (The Undiscovered Country, which I have never seen..apparently it's supposed to be on the higher end of the movie spectrum) WITH RIFF TRACKS! AHHH IT IS GONNA BE GOOD. Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett and are gonna blab throughout it and it'll be wonderful and hilarious. I thank Evan so very much for letting me know about the existence of Riff Tracks.

Anywayyy....that should do it for now. Cleaning my room and errands and things to do.
