Journal
Open letter to a parting friend
Dear friend,
Or I should say 'brother,' probably. Yes, you know who you are. Even though only about four years have gone by since we met in the most awkward of circumstances, it's funny how we've both reached an age in which friendships seem to last a lifetime instead of the untranscending kinds of camaraderie one used to have in highschool. Well, at least that's the case for me, since I know you keep your childhood friends close. Regardless of that, it does feel like we've known each other for so much longer than just four years. And in those four years you've made me so, so mad. So, so many times. You've made me laugh like a walrus, curse like a demon and worry like a mother. Yep, friendship with you has been quite a rollercoaster. Strangely enough too, since you're such a collected and hermetic guy. Maybe I've done all the feeling for both of us, maybe you just aren't versed enough in the rocky roads that sometimes wait ahead of us. What is unquestioned, though, is that it's been a

Sleepy Head
Morning all, it's 2017, time to wake up :floating:

Original download is my working resolution, 5120x2880 (that's double the QHD screen of 2560x1440) should fit all widescreen monitors, although I'll do other sizes on request (not that I get requests here anymore... dead page is dead...).

Curiosity
"I wonder who's under there..."

A little Titania fanart that I actually finished for once... I hate drawing mecha, Rhino was a pain in my arse.

Also, that background is an outrageous cheat. Ignore it for me, would you? :floating:

Deeper snow
While we were walking that day, some nutter decided he'd jump bodily into snow that deep while not wearing full cold gear. He knows who he is.

Now, guidelines are kind of rough, we'll see what comes up:

1: No smut. Not now, maybe later though if this takes off ;) (Wink) 

2: I can't do many voices or accents beyond my own, please be gentle.

3: Nothing is true, everything is permitted. Well, sort of, see number 1.

Apart from that? Go for it. Fiction, song lyrics, even random words, give me something fun to read!

Let me know in the comments, or even Note me suggestions if you want it to be a surprise to other people out there.

If you're reading this, you're bored. That, or uncomfortably interested in who I am...

Long story short, ask me, I like telling people stories, and my own is quite a good one (if you're into comic tragedies and occasional deviations into Monty Python).

I'm no angel, but I keep the wings, just in case :floating:

Sup bro!? It's been a while since I've seen you online, how are things holding up on your end? I'm asking because the last journal you posted was in 2014, so some time has passed... I hope everything is well; I hope to chat with you later too! I've been dabbling in some literature with support from Tybius who I met through PSN; we'll talk more later if your still on! :highfive:

Heya! Yeah, I'm an honest-to-RNGesus lurker these days. There's been a lot going on and my computer time is so limited that it's all I can do to just view everyone's uploads, writing out my own journal or finishing off any of my sketches is currently a fleeting dream to my over-worked self.

Good to see you're still alive and kicking, though, and that people haven't forgotten me. Heck, if I have time, I may even post up these unfinished bits I've got just floating around my drives. Also, went on holidays, have photos of awesome nature, as usual. But that's all just stuff that I have for now. Work is hell, 12 hour days on average, family, friends... Real life is difficult once you're 30.

No, something bad. Not something I can talk about in a public forum, because it involves a family member, but basically I'm completely out of time for things like drawing and creating just about anything.

I haven't done anything like drawing for months now, not even my practice work to keep my eye in, I'm hopelessly out of form. Not to mention all my energy is just being drained to the point of insomnia, health problems and the desire to just run away and never come back. As you can imagine, that wouldn't help anything, so I'm kind of stuck.

If I can come back from this, then you'll find me here again, drawing up a storm thanks to all the bottled-up creativity I'm suppressing, but I can't allow myself to waste time on me when there's so much that needs to be done for someone else.

It's not all bad news though, I'm actually going to be getting some time for just me, something to look forward to is always worth the time it takes to get there. In short; I've booked a different sort of holiday for next February than I would usually book. Instead of going to Africa to visit relatives, or to somewhere else in the world where I could do the same, I'm going to chase the Aurora Borealis in the north of Sweden (a place called Abisko) for five days. End of February I'll be out there ticking things off my proverbial Bucket List, like 'standing on ice that can support my weight without cracking' (I'm going ice fishing), and 'take a walk in snow deep enough to be inconvenient' (living in England I've never had snow deep enough to actually need me to change shoes, so out there I'll be going snow-shoe trekking) and finally... [drum roll please] staying a night in the Ice Hotel!

So... a mixed bag of things. Right now I'm terrible and may not be able to do anything or be anywhere but IRL helping out, but I have something awesome to look forward to, and things can always get better.

Catch you around! :floating:

I'd love to tell you I was fantastic over the last two years, but the best I can muster is 'I survived them' :floating:

Great to see you back!

TaurusJ Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2015
Oh man... Surviving is pretty much the very term I'd use for the last few years.

But as you used to say, after every low comes a high... or rather, a place not quite as low and disappointing as before and that's where I'm headed right now. Turns out, being a teacher is a metric shitton of work but at least it's enjoyable work so there's that.

It's great to be back ^^

Hey, and 'ugh'... Life is treating me badly, this is the fourth night this week where I've arrived home after 8pm from a 9-5:30 day job.

But I can't complain, I'm getting paid for it at least. Not much, but paid.

How about you my young friend?

Damn, that sounds unpleasant :( Long shifts, or just too much going?

I'm sorry that's happening though. *hugs*

I can relate though. I moved halfway across the country and started a new job about six months ago. The hours are good, but the traffic between home and work is awful. Leave at 7AM, Get home about 6-6:30PM. It gets old quickly.

Otherwise life's been alright. Still getting used to the new place, missing the old one a little. But you can't stay in the same place forever either, and the new job was definitely worth the change.

Heh, I wish I could change jobs, move somewhere else, the problem is I have zero funding. (Pity-party rant ahead, you don't have to read it)

It's only this year that they started paying me a liveable wage (I'm still living with my grandparent, have no car, no savings) so my ability to go anywhere is entirely zilch without help. Ten years I've worked for these guys, eleven as of next month, and up until August this year I didn't get paid enough to put any money away as savings, not enough to move out of the house, not enough to put a down-payment on a car... For a skilled labour job as a full-time Prepress operator for a printing firm (as in, I have to be as good a designer as one that's college trained, a colour tech, be able to run diagnostics on software over the phone and trouble-shoot the ins-and-outs of all the specific problems a mechanical plate processor gets on a weekly basis). There's a special place for the only company in a twenty mile radius in my field of expertise that will outright claim near bankruptcy for ten years so that they don't have to give their workers a wage rise, nor pay them overtime and then take the other pay-outs like 'death in service' pay down to a third of its previous... Hell, the only reason I could go on holidays, as you may have seen from my gallery, is because I actually have family out in Africa.

ANYWAY! Rant over! I'm finally able to do what I want, sort of. The pay rise is welcome, the return of overtime pay too, and I'm putting money away for down-payments on things like a vehicle and holidays again. I just wish it didn't come with added responsibility that kept me at work for three or four hours after normal working shifts. That's the rough bit.
