This is quite a bit late, and I'm sure you've all figured out that I've already moved, but....

Well, I've finished moving...er, about two weeks ago, and I've been trying to settle in since, then. The move was pretty easy, it was just a long drive and then we had to get everything into the apartment. It wasn't until we started to set up the internet that the headaches began. It was just days of frustration, but it finally got fixed a week after we moved in. But I am here, in one piece and alive. Which is important.

I'm still jobless, so I'm busy looking for a job. I would consider doing commissions, but I'm not sure I have enough of an audience for it to be worth while. However, if you do want to pay me to draw for you, I'm open to it, especially since I have really nothing coming in at this point in terms of money. The job search has kept me from doing a lot of work on my projects.

But, I've still managed to find time for art and even some outlines (somehow). I haven't posted much on dA, but I have posted some things on twitter via the twitpic thing. So you can look there and see. I'm probably more likely to post little things through twitter that I don't want to post on dA because they're not really what I consider a "full piece". Or they're for some other big piece. Please do look on my twitter if you're interested. =)

Another thing (which is mostly for [personal profile] karenai), I'm doing the translation for the movie comic of Fade to Black. I've so far gotten up to page 32, although I skipped page 15 because I want to go back to it, since it's got a lot more text and usually by the time I get to translating, it's late and I'm tired. XD But I'm still trying to find time in between all the things I need to do to translate it. =)

But for now, I'm off to bed.

I get really annoyed when I post some art and it gets no response and then I get all depressed. I'm not annoyed by the lack of response, since really it's telling me that I'm doing things wrong or not appealing to an audience. Or it was a flop. What I get annoyed by is the resulting depression, or more like down-heartedness. The reason being, it usually ends up translating into self-berating and self-criticism along the "You're just not good enough" line. Which may be true. But still, I don't need myself to discourage myself from continuing on with what I like to do. I hate how my thinking is always torn between figuring out how to reach the widest audience possible and just doing what I really want with my ideas without giving a damn. It doesn't help at all that there's a lot of things I need to work on, like composition and the like. Or maybe, I really should just give up. >_> Note that I won't because I'm obstinate.

But by far, the biggest reason why I hate feeling like this is because it makes me feel like a petulant spoilt brat.

Also, random Kubo tweet from about 4 hours ago: そういえば晩メシのあと実家に電話したら、親に「時々ツイッター見てるよ」って言われた。ひいっ…!
(Speaking of which, when I called home after dinner, I was told by my parents "Sometimes we look at your twitter". Yikes!)

The terror of artists everywhere, the 'rents reading their blogs/twitter, etc and knowing what kind of things their kids have been up to. XD
