So, hello again you darlings on the other end of the computer desktop! Im up and writing again, and as you can see, I even updated my gallery with one lousy flat color commission, lol. X,D But hopefully, in time we will have more pictures and honestly speaking, I even have one I have almost colored and finished with Seashore, but I wont say what it is until its completely done Ill just hint you that if you like my character Demian, it is very likely that youll like this picture. Hopefully itll turn out ok. :3 But Anyways, Im kinda writing from work now, as I actually got me a summer job from the same place my father works. Maybe some of you guys know about it, its this huge company that makes paper and paper machines or such called Metso. So, Im working in one of the gazillion offices of Metso and apparently, there isnt really that much to do. There are four of us summer workers , two of younger kind and then two of us older kind which basically means that the older people, me and Aua, are over 18 years of age and the younger ones are under 18 16 or 17 would be my guess. And as there are so many of us, there isnt really much to do here. Im trying to learn Excel incase someone has something Excel related work for me and on the side of that I have been organizing CDs, cards and photos into plastic pockets and files for about 4 days now. Im almost done with the organizing now, Ill only have to make some lists of contents and such. And in addition to that, there isnt much anything more to do at least for today, I guess. My father, who works here and organizes things for me to do, is on his regular trip to Portugal and promised o send me some material for tomorrow and said that if I have nothing to do, I could always surf the internet, even though when I got this lap top on the behalf of the company, the instructions said that Im not supposed to use it for any personal reasons. But as the other workers said that its fine to surf if your daily work is done, I decided to update for a bit. And thats about it for my daily how are yous. X3
The thing I really wanted to write about, was that I got a sweet comic gig! 83 My very first official comic commission
and Im beyond excited! I mean, this Finnish magazine called Anime-lehti
asked, if I could draw a colored, three page comic for their Julys issue and being very flattered of such request, I agreed to make it. :3 I still cant fit it in my head that theyre actually going to publish a comic Ive drawn. Theyre going to freakin publish it! *dances da Dashi dance* Im sorry to shout it out like this, but this is a chance Ive been looking forward to and Im not going to let it go! Maybe Ill be able to get some other comic gigs as well, who knows? One can always hope, eh? But first, Ill have to finish up the comic that was asked of me by Anime-lehti. I have clear idea what Im going to draw for it, and Ive already scripted the whole thing and made layouts so I think it can be done in time, even if Im having there 8-hour-long days at work. But since its pretty easy around here, (even if they pay you like, almost 1700 euros per month! O_O) I can always try to ink it every here and there, when Ive got the time. And of course, I have some time during the evenings as well even though they feel really short when you work from 8am to 4pm and add 1,5 bus trips to that amount. Im happy though, that I got this job! X3 Now I can afford to go to Animecon, buy a lot of stuff and maybe Ill even cosplay some! :3
And speaking about Animecon
of this year, held at Tampere in the end of July, Ill most likely be selling prints
and other paper products there like I did in Tracon in the beginning of this very year! :3 And because my comic is going to be published with the Julys issue of Anime-lehti right after the Animecon event, Ill be able to promote it a bit in there. Ive had these great visions of drawing a little advertising poster and stuff, but well see if I can scratch up some spare time for it. Hopefully there will be buyers, like there were in Tracon in February! I mean, you guys, who visited our stand and bought something or just stayed and chatted with us you were so amazing! Hope to see you in Animecon as well. And as for my cosplaying dilemma, Im not colsplaying any when Im selling and promoting my stuff, but I hope to get to cosplaying at some point! : O I mean, I dont have any costume right at the moment, but because I had this killer graduation party a week ago and Im having my payday this Friday, I have money to produce one. And I think I can get my sister or the professional sewer living next door to make me one. And I might just have hunch what Im going to cosplay. I had this idea Id coslplay Meowth from Team Rocket, but Im not really feeling like it anymore, since I know its most likely going to be hot in July and the costume is really thick. It was my first tryout of making a costume in one course I took of sewing. I made the tail, and the body suit, but its still missing the hood for years and all four paws. Im not going abandon the idea though, but Id like to wear something slightly lighter like Dio from Last Exile, I would be so happy to get to cosplay him! X3 Id have to buy a wig, but Im willing to sacrifice as much. Ill just have to discuss this ides with our neighbor who usually provides me with advice when it comes to buying fabrics and sewing and stuff like that.
But yeah, I think thats about it. Hopefully you had the energy to read all the way down here, even if my blabber wasnt that interesting I just felt like writing because I wanted you darlings to know that new art is on the way and I also wanted to know if there are some others who are coming to the Finnish Animecon 2008 this year? Id love to know! :3 Oh, and for those people who are waiting for me in the RPG forums
, Im so sorry I havent had the chance to log in! D : Im working all day and PHPBB forums are banned here I cant get t them from here during the week, but Ill try again Friday, mmkay? ^^ But feel free to contact me by Deviant arts note system or send me e-mail into my firstname.lastname@example.org! Im checking them daily from here, because I can get to them. Checking e-mail is even acceptable in here. X,D But yeah. Hopefully youre having a wonderful summer!
You keep me going!
Oh, and still, in addition to all that blabber, I would appreciate, if you guys visited my website as well! :3 Ive been updating it for 5,5 years now! ^^ I just wanted to put the link here, because it seems that some new people are discovering my gallery in DA.
