A new story arc has started on Never Ever After www.nevereverafter.com/2013/03…

This one is by young Baldie, not myself, but he's done a damn good job and you should all read it :D

You should also all "like" us on the book of faces so that you get regular updates on the comic and our exciting lives! Click here: www.facebook.com/nevereverafte…

Hello hello.

I've upgraded back to premium and I'm going to change my username. I have no idea what to change it to though.

I just realised I've had my dA account for 9 whole years. Wow I feel old. This page needs some TLC :)

EDIT: Well, I did it. Man, the top of my page looks weird now!

Hello all :)

How's life?

I've been pretty busy. Got a new job!
I now work in the bakery of a Wholefoods Market, which has it's ups and downs, but I get paid to make cake so it's really not too bad!
Working a steady 40 hours a week has taken some getting used to, not to mention the getting up at 4.30am...

Not had a lot of time for arty stuff, but I've been sketching a bit and working on the next story arc for Never Ever After www.nevereverafter.com
Hopefully will have more to post once I get into a rhythm with comic stuff!

Hey everyone, how're you all doing?

I've not been on dA much lately.
I've not had an awful lot of time to draw at all, and when I have it's all unfinished.
Maybe I'll get some more done soon though!
I seem to come back every couple of months then vanish again ^^;

Since my last journal I got another job in a bar, hated it and went back to my old job... so I'm still working at weddings and stuff.
I'm doing a baking night class at the moment too though, and trying to get into a full time cake production course, so we'll see how that goes!

I'm also running the Race for Life in Glasgow tomorrow morning to raise money for Cancer Research :)

Chris and I are still doing the web comic over at Never Ever After www.nevereverafter.com

I started reading A Song of Ice and Fire in February and finished it so far this week, addictive! Now I have to wait for the next book to come out in July, noooooooo!

Hi guys :)

Long time no speak as per usual.
How's everyone been?

I have actually done some drawings and what not lately, but I've not really been putting anything up.
I've got about 15 images in my 'for finishing' folder on my desktop.
Think I'll put some sketches up today.

The last three or four months have mostly been spent working and playing Fallout 3... and playing my uke!

Interesting news: I worked at Billy Boyds wedding, which was fun. Lovely people.

The fateful list of things I intend to do in the coming year:
- GET A BETTER JOB (this one is very important)
- Get better at drawing, particularly inking.
- Exercise more. (started running again!)
- Learn Greek. (I'm aiming for well enough to be able to read The Iliad and The Odyssey in Greek, which will probably take me up to about 2020)

There's many more, but those are the main ones.
I'm trying to design my own website just now which is part of the whole job thing...

Well, better get to it!

How's everyone doing? :)
I feel like I've not been speaking you you all much lately.
I've been at work quite a lot. Long long shifts.

Looking for a new flat at the moment which is exciting! Would be able to paint the walls and everything :D

Character Tag thingy.

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 13, 2010, 2:04 AM
I woke up at 5am and couldn't get back to sleep so here I am!
I got tagged a little while ago by :iconjenkristo: to do one of these facts-about-you things, but I'm rubbish at thinking of things about myself to write, and I've seen a few folk doing them about characters instead, so I'm going to give that a go :)
Jinn and Avel are more interesting that I am anyway haha.


Jinn:
1. He's fairly tiny for a boy, he's only 5'6" and he only weighs about 105lbs.
2. He was pretty much mute for a hefty chunk of his life and sometimes finds it hard to keep from having internal conversations with himself rather than speaking out loud.
3. Not many things irritate him more than being spoken to like he's stupid. Although he does ask for it sometimes, 'cause he's silly.
4. He's not very good at staying sober, after a while his thoughts get too loud for him and he needs to shut them up.
5. He struggles to sleep alone, but will sleep like a baby if someone will snuggle him.
6. His handwriting is only barely legible.
7. If he could get away with it he would sleep in a tree. He'd be happier if he could live in the woods, off the land. If he was actually in any way capable of surviving.
8. He would take a bullet for a certain lovely little lady :aww:
9. He doesn't know his own birthday, and he's not entirely sure how old he is.


Avel:
1. He can be quite fickle with a lot of things, but gets attached to certain people that he finds interesting and will check in on them whether they know it or not for years and years.
2. He likes watching trashy reality tv when he can't sleep in the day. His current favourite is Four Weddings.
3. He's got a serious soft-spot for red heads.
4. He has a mancrush on Jimi Hendrix. He was heartbroken when he died.
5. He's a closet Mike And The Mechanics fan. www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAMLa5… He tries hard not to sing along, but he just can't help being lame :lol:
6. One of the first people he killed after being turned was his own father, before he got used to actually having some power behind him. It was really a long time coming either way, but he still has somewhat mixed feelings about. Lesson: don't bottle shit up!
7. He's got a bit of a problem with masochism. He likes to push the limits of his mortality - or lack thereof.
8. If he doesn't know someones name then he gives them a nickname, even if it's just to refer to them in his own head. It often sticks even after he learns their real name.
9. Born on the 27th of June 1941. He's getting old.

That'll about do I reckon!

First and most importantly, much love to :iconlittlepapersparrow: for buying me a sub in exchange for postage for her Judas. Even though she'd already made me this amazing picture of Avel!

She's awesome, and you should all tell her so :D

Well, I've been pretty inactive on dA, as per usual ^^;
I don't seem to ever finish things. I've got a big collection of mostly done stuff. I should probably either finish them or put them up as is for some kind of crit at least!

Since my last journal I've been mostly working.
Doing the comic with True-Believer available here: www.nevereverafter.com/
Umm... not much exciting to be honest.
I went to see RX Bandits on the 1st of June and a few of the tour crew crashed at my mates flat. Ended up there til the wee wee hours and hung out with them, including Matt Embree. And I molested his beard. Dream come true? I do think so!
That's about the most exciting thing to happen lately... or ever. haha. :heart:

Ever since my subscription ran out it's been really glitchy apart from the pages that are about getting a subscription.
Seriously??
Why?
It's very annoying.

Is this happening to anyone else, or are they actually trying to bully me into renewing my subscription?

Hi everyone,
If anyone will read this... haha.
How's life?

Not a whole lot exciting to report at my end really!
Started a new job in Glasgow, but it's just a lackey position at the Oran Mor. Lots of weddings and things, not a bad job really.
Just going to be working and saving money for a year so I can afford to do my masters next year!

In more creative news, for anyone who hasn't read it yet, my flatmate True-Believer have got a comic up and running, it's updated on Tuesdays, but we might start updating it twice a week if we can make the pages fast enough!
Read it here: www.nevereverafter.com/2010/03…

I'm doing science and I'm still alive!

I'm not really, but that song's been stuck in my head all day!

Anyway.

I finally got my dissertation all handed in and stuff. Woo!

Just reveling in not having an awful lot to do at the moment. Playing my PS3 (when I can wrestle it away from truebeliever ), doodling, catching up on some tv, and making some squishy things :)

My dA subscription ran out, and I'm poor so I'm not going to get another one just now. It's weird without it, I've had one for years!

That's all with me just now really. How's everyone doing?

Busy, Christmas, Getting old!

Once again I'm barely ever on dA.
Should be more active after the new year though, once my dissertation is gone and I don't have to think about it!
Been doing pretty much nothing but working and reading/writing for that!

Lots to look forward to this week though;
- Staff night out with my awesome work mates tomorrow!
- AVATAR AT THE IMAX on Friday night (I'm so excited!!)
- My birthday on Sunday. I'm going to be 23... NOOOOOO!
- Going home for the festive period on Monday so I actually get to see all my family and my friends back home

:)Got our Christmas tree up in the flat and I bought and wrapped all my presents today so I'm feeling very festive.
Especially after walking through town with all the pretty lights on and everything :D

Check out the angel on our tree :giggle: twitpic.com/to2cb

Hello deviantART!
Long time, no speak.
Sorry I've been neglecting you all terribly.
I've only been popping on from time to time lately, but I've had a lot going on!

Mostly working and moving.

Was a year since my Dad died on Wednesday, so that sucked... and I've been getting killer migraines, but there's a lot of good things too!

That's me officially moved up to Glasgow, in an awesome big flat with my boyfriend and True-Believer.
Now I just need a job up here!

Got a couple of drawings in production, and a lot of doodles that probably won't come to anything...
Working all weekend, but maybe I'll have time to finish them during next week :)

Up finally came out in the UK last Friday, and even though I already saw it in the summer in the US, I'm still totally in love with it.
Seen it thrice and I want to go back!
If only Pixar would give me a job. I would adore to be a part of something that wonderful :heart:
I'm probably really annoying everyone I know by ranting and raving about it constantly!

Going to see Portugal. The Man at the Captains Rest in a couple of weeks.
If you haven't listened to them before then I highly recommend that you do! www.myspace.com/portugaltheman
Guaranteed to destroy a bad mood!

Anyway, I should sleep soon, got a silly commute to work in the morning.

Back to reality with a bang now though as I need to find a flat in Glasgow by the end of the month. ARGH!
Already viewed a load and got another like 7 viewings on Tuesday.... scratch that, I was just called and informed than one has been taken. make that 6 viewings.

Anyone want to keep me as a pet? I'm housetrained!

But first!
I'm going to the Leeds Festival again this weekend! :D
Andfucking RADIOHEAD are one of the headliners! :excited:

Can't wait!

Won't have internet access while I'm there. Might update Twitter via text a few times, just 'cause I'm sad like that.
Either way, I'll be back next Monday, nice and smelly :D

So I finished my last shift at work before my holiday tonight.
Spending all of tomorrow packing and getting ready, then flying to New York at 9am on Thursday!

I'm very excited, and also very VERY nervous.
I HATE flying.
I have a proper phobia. So really not looking forward to that.
I don't think I'll actually be relaxed between now and when my feet touch solid ground on the other side of the atlantic.

Can't wait to actually be there though :)

Staying with my Aunt and Uncle for the most part, but my boyfriend and I are going to be in New York City on our own for a few days.

Got lots planned, including seeing RX Bandits, AC/DC and Portugal. The Man live! And spending a week at the beach :D

I probably won't log into deviantArt much, if at all when I'm over there, I'd just be overwhelmed by my inbox (I cleared it last night and tonight I already had 79 deviations and 16 messages!) but I'll probably update my twitter, just because it's so easy and I like to keep in touch!

Hope you all have an enjoyable two weeks or so and I'll be back on the 17th of August!
:heart:

(when I get back I'll actually have time to draw again!!:D)
