So with my newfound job, one of the things I’ve been doing in trying to stack up on all my favorite books I read while I was younger. These two books I loved to death, as they dealt with mysterious, unknown things. The Universe in a Nutshell helped me understand astronomical and cosmology concepts quite a bit, too. I’m glad to finally own these!
While I was back in ETSU, I followed a girl by the name of MellasFenixxes on deviantART. I loved her stuff and while I kept tabs on it, never thought about commissioning her till my first job started. Over the summer I was brave enough to ask her to commission a long-standing idea I had, some of the Disney girls dressed up in the outfits from Touhou. The first one we worked on was Esmeralda; this was the final result after I went back a few times to fix the background.

At my workplace, we have a whiteboard in the little kitchen area. Nobody really does anything on it except post a motivational flyer now and then. So I tried to add some funny doodles a few months in. I was inspired by a Dalek meme I had seen in school back in the beginning of the years, so I adapted it a bit as if they were working the job I was. 😛
Unfortunately, my coworkers didn’t appreciate it. It got erased a day later and nobody made a single comment on them. I never drew anything on their big whiteboard again.
Something from Motion Tools 2; I can swap out the sky and put in a different background. Yay?
In all honesty I love how it came out, though. One of my video projects I’m more proud of.
I had just started playing Borderlands 2 on Xbox. Me being the creative fellow that I was, I drummed this up after falling in love with a long-barreled pistol in the game. That particular instance it was called the “Longarm”, hence the name.
I actually had a trigger but it tore off very easily when cutting the hole out. Oops.
Well, the time for me to graduate ETSU is finally here. In another hour I’ll have a Bachelor’s in Digital Media! Sitting here in the hall is like waiting in a dropship to be deployed. A life-changing moment for me to say the least. Let’s see what’s in store for me in the future.
I was not getting a lot of hands-on experience cooking fish, but living on my own was putting preparing food more squarely on my shoulders. One afternoon I finally got an almost perfect mix of breaded, pan-fried tilapia. Flavored with paprika, pepper and salt, I absolutely loved this, considering the last time I attempted this as a disaster. As I’m moving out of my place next week after graduation day, this will probably be one of the last big meals I’m cooking here unless I can top this off with something else.
This was a pretty spiffy meal, working out great for a cold December morning back when I was home at ETSU. Cream of mushroom soup, fried red kidney beans, coffee and toast. With the stuff I’m eating while at school, this was a welcome change.
A couple days ago I had posted a sketch my friend Sachiho had given me. This is the colored version of it, Frankly came out pretty well, but I’m sure I can do it a lot better as time goes on. Still, I love how it came out.

While I was at school earlier this afternoon, my friend Sachiho Iba drew this sketch of Sheena for me! She knew I was a big Tales of Symphonia fan and wanted to do something nice for me. I absolutely love the sketch and will be giving this a go-over in Photoshop soon.
