This is a sticky and will be the first entry until August. Please scroll down for updates
Well, I did it! I set up a Go Fund Me campaign to help me get to Chicago. I know, I know! Another crowd funding request circulating tumblr? Geeze! I’m also well aware that most of you are in a difficult financial situation too but I implore you to please PLEASE check the link out! You get cool goodies for donating! Yay!
Most of the information explaining the whole ordeal is over at the site, but I do want to take the time to explain just how important this is for me right here right now. I’m sick, nothing terminal don’t worry, but it is chronic and gets in the way of everything. It has stopped me from fulfilling my dream of going to grad school in Boston and pursuing art adventures in printmaking. A friend informed me about this residency and out of curiosity I applied and entered my old portfolio. I was honestly shocked that I was one of the lucky people who was accepted for the residency! I am so excited that I get to practice my printmaking skills again and just be productive. This could be the turning of a new leaf to just get me going again. I’ve been so miserable and depressed these past few years, and I want to take advantage that I still can physically make art. Because someday my autoimmune illnesses will more than likely leave me completely useless and invalid. You have no idea how much this means to me on a personal level as well as an artistic merit! But I need help. My husband has a dead end job that barely pays, I pay hundreds a month on medication, insurance, and doctor appointments. Working a regular job is difficult for me at the moment because of my illnesses. I want to work, but I can’t do it on a demanding schedule. THIS is my opportunity to work. THIS is my opportunity to prove to others but mostly myself that I can do it. I can still do something for now.
Please click the link. Please donate. If you can’t I would be so grateful if you could reblog and share this with others. Thank you all so much!

My friend has been having a rough time so I offered to draw her a quick lil’ somethin’-somethin’.
She won’t admit it outwardly but she may kinda sorta have a slight appreciation for a certain ship.
While I’m not much of a shipper I love the quirky relationships Nick is developing in the show!
I really need to catch up.
See, Gene? This is why the fire department didn’t want you.
Just a quick dumb doodle of some of my guys playing with sparklers because why not.
I've been playing Skyrim and made my half-orc gal, Thala, as my playable character. If you fight vampires at close range you run the risk of contracting "Sanguinare Vampiris" which, if left untreated, turns your character into a vampire. I was just wondering how that would work with an already big set of lower incisors.
Some gift art for my fab friend whose celebrating her birthday today! Yay!
A silly little comic based on a post about my friend hating her current wardrobe, wanting to get rid of it, and going back to goth and punk because it is what she’s most comfy in.
I then did this thing because the words “clothes” and “punk” or “goth” equal Bob. Shopping spree!
