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.

FoxGirl06Thanx for the comment! =P I used to be terrified of coloring with computers because I was afraid it would look horrible. When I found out I had photoshop I was excited because ive seen many very good pictures thats have been edited with it. When I installed it I realized it was very easy to use! Im sure if you had it, it would make you more comfortable with coloring on the computer too! Once again thanx for the comment! =) (By the way I LOVE your art! ^^)
