For those who even remember me, let alone give a rip - I had an "incident" with a feline a few weeks ago that has left my two index fingers in a semi-useful state. The good news is I do get to keep the fingers, the bad news is things are ALOT harder to do, like turning a doorknob, reaching in my pocket, or signing my name. I know I've been inactive so long probably nobody cares, but I'm afraid drawing is RIGHT OUT.... For a while until I heal.

With he dawn of 2013, I think it's high time for a profile update!

My fingers have healed quite well, but it's taken them years.  The cat did some somewhat permanent damage, as the fingers can tire out quickly.  Nevertheless, I can still churn out an occasional drawing!!  (Happy dance)

Still railroading.  Still voice acting.  Still loving it all!

Last year, I bought myself my very own place!  A nice little waterfront two-bedroom condo in a big California city. 
I still can't believe First National Title saw fit to give me a home loan!  o_O
Year one of mortgage payments down - 29 more to go.  Wish me luck.

SmilinJuanValdezI know you can do it. :)

Well as far as games or animes... ??? I *think* I know many of both, but I'm sure there's a million and one titles I haven't heard of.

How may I improve on my work? I would really appreciate your input.

calahnai am going to try to set my own gallery. plus i have come to the solution that i really need to buckle down on my comics. if i want to get published i need not be distracted by fanart.
I did change my mind slightly so far tho.
I'm going to create a new name here. my old gallery was too sucky. i want a fresh start.
but! i'm still going to check my profile and such on this name. can still talk to me.
when i put my new name up i'll post the link.
