Except last year, I pretty much try to get a birthday piece done every year. It varies in content, but it generally is characters of mine being kind or silly. This year I went for the former, and had my OC Jennifer, along with my blog mascot Yorina grab a seat with a self-portrait of yours truly. I rarely have myself depicted in artworks, so it was a little charming, to be honest.
As usual, I did the coloring and the background, and opted to use the station background from Rafferty’s Mobius as the backdrop. On top of my that, my Type-10 Obsidian Anvil is pretty prominent on the pad. It seems more mashed up with genres, but you can always count on me crunching genres like this together.

So when I went to the KnoxAsia festival with my cousin’s fiance, we grabbed food; after all, that was one of the best things you could ask for while at a festival. She had some butter chicken with naan, and I had stir-fry fried rice with chicken, and some zucchini strips. We had to wait quite awhile for our food (about an hour), but when we sat down to eat in the lawn, it was an interesting experience for sure.
So I picked up this monstrosity when I went to Starbucks for a job interview earlier today. I don’t know what I was quite expecting taste-wise, but it certainly was very sweet and sugary, and tasted a lot like cotton candy. Definitely not like a mocha or cappuccino. I think I did get this because I missed out on that Unicorn shake the previous years.
Final verdict? Not bad. This is stuff for an easygoing road trip or hanging out with friends. Don’t get this if you’re in the mood to focus and want something stiff/regular.
So when I visited my cousin who graduated from UT earlier today, we all went out to go eat at Bombay Palace. I actually forgot that I’ve not been here in a few years; I do clearly remember visiting here when I graduated from ETSU myself in 2013. I guess it’s a hotspot for graduation families to visit.
Aside from whatever was in the buffet, I had a side of fried chicken pakora. This was real tasty and I think came out better than Sahib’s in Johnson City. I pretty much equate the taste to pholourie batter on fried chicken. On top of that, there’s a tamarind sweet sauce they give you, which is almost like honey mustard in taste; that complemented it real well.
Give it a shot when you get the chance.
This was a nice piece I got to do for u/thorbeck15, with him and his girlfriend in their living room for Valentines. They absolutely loved it and it was fun to work on as well! Before I started on this, I had no idea what Spot-it was; sue homeschool life for me.
So if you guys don’t know already, I’ve been working on a comic series based on stuff from the r/AntiMLM subreddit since May now. It’s been an on and off project for me and have a backlog, but it’s been a wonderful project to work on, especially since its the first time any of my projects have actually been recognized and followed.
Recently I approached Kennis the Menace, a Youtuber that covers some subreddits, asking her to give some coverage to the comics I did. She agreed and went ahead to make a video on it; the results are pretty interesting! Big thank you to her. Give it a look below, along with following her on social media linked below.
I was recently commissioned by Playstation-bunduru to draw a dog in a Jamaican rasta hat. We talked some details and this was the final result; he was really happy with it to say the least. I felt awesome as well, as this was the first time I had done an art commission for 2019.
