First of all MERRY XMAS DARN IT!!
Secondly, thanks for birthday wishes! I had a nice one. Oh man, 25. That sounds big. Well, it's not really, but I thought of it sorta different way back in those days. I thought I would be all important and shit, living in a world capital, driving a sports car and having a dapper British lifetime partner. Idiot, am I.
If only it was that simple. Alas, I live in Russia, it takes quite a lot to get out of here. And rule number one is NEVER PROCRASTINATE! There's still a long way to go, just now I'm going to tread carefully. Maybe this is how I reach the destination.
Geez, I'm so falling apart. Hardly ever log in. Requests and contributions pending, two comics. Always on the computer. Final year in college. I have one semester remaining until I'm absolutely free to go wherever I want, and I feel the last is going to be the hardest. My graduation project is a huge 3x3 ft painting that is only a part of what else I'll have to do. The good thing about it is that I actually like the subject. I'm painting a portrait of Wilson. I had to, however, convince the teachers that it's all based on Lovecraft's Alchemist, but it's not a lie, really. Don't Starve is based on Lovecraft's writing, and Wilson is somewhat like Antoine. Both live in a remote, isolated place, both are in search of... ugh, whatever they can find, both eventually become alchemists. Seems legit, everyone is fine with that, girls like him a lot.
Really, why shouldn't they?
And like DS and Gorillaz wasn't enough, lately I've joined the already enormous fandom of Team Fortress 2. Ah. So many fandoms, so little time!
Do I hear the word "crossover"?
Random news: I shot my finger from a staple gun. By pure accident. The sear spring fell out and as I attempted to push it back in, -- it's always happening in these cases -- I forgot to remove the clip and the spring stood back in suddenly and abruptly. The trigger went off. Lots of blood, excruciating pain, I fear I shot through the nerve. The victim finger feels kind of numb although it's nearly healed. I'll see what happens next.
IRONY! I'd love to do more of it, but everything has its cost. You'll see the rest of the story, in outline. Literally, because I'll have to reduce my efforts on shading. Please be understanding: I do a lot of stuff, and manage time to fit in the deadlines.
More Gorillaz on the way.
Hopefully see you anytime soon, stay devious
