Howdy, everyone! HOPE YOU'RE HAVING A GOOD HOLIDAY N ALL THAT GOOD STUFF.
Life has been real crazy as per the usual, but more-so because of things I'll mention as this update blog continues.
Since the family has been really wanting to spend some time this holiday season, and due to preparing for traveling abroad along with freelance work, I've only gotten through about 1/2 of my commissions. But I'm gonna try to knock a couple more out before I head across the ocean. They won't all be done before the end of December, but definitely in January cuz I'm really looking to clear my responsibilities out as soon as I'm across the sea and full-speed ahead in my studies and work.
MY WEBCOMIC, HONKYTONK-HUSTLERS
... Returns January 13th! Stay tuned amigos!
So as you'll probably see soon, I've been doing a lot of freelance work for some underground hip-hop artists these days, and I'm really aiming to kind of make that a permanent freelance goal of mine! I've been doing some album covers and merchandise work lately! Among one of the biggest projects is an actual official music video I'm making and animating for a really talented jrap/american rap artist and I'm super hype about it. Thanks to the holidays being a bit crazy, I probably won't finish it until some time in January. But you'll see it for sure once his EP comes out, so though it's a secret just who it is for now, keep your eyes peeled.
LIFE IN GENERAL
Happy holidays and stuff! Wow, I'm moving to Hong Kong China in 1 week! Crazy stuff, but it's gonna be super freaking amazing I'm sure. Unless it totally isn't, and I die. I'm gonna be busy as FUCK but that's why I'm trying to get stuff all good and done and out of the way before I peace out. Also, I was in Japan twice these past few months! I wrote some blogs about those trips on my tumblr. Check it out if you're interested. I went to go see my favorite band perform both times and it was hype af. www.demondicecal.tumblr.com
Seriously, I can't believe all the travel I've been doing these past few months. People ask me all the time how I can afford it, and to be honest, it's because I work 2 jobs, 3 if you count the freelance I'm constantly taking on. I don't really have any free time, so it's always worth it when I'm on trips or vacations. Those are the only times I get to totally not worry about the world or life's craziness and whatever.
Between my comic, school, and trying to get my name going around the underground music community through projects and freelance, I really don't have time for other projects. But once I get a little bit of room, I've got a zine idea I really wanna try, something I haven't seen done before but really wanna get people interested in. More on that later, when I'm not busy af. I also wanna try to make more music videos! I was aiming for 3-4 a year, each just within season. I'd of course be using my favorite music and just doing it for fun. But I think I'd like to start an animation circle someday. Ya know, pull together a few other talented artists and work as a unit. Like PPP, creators of FAKE TYPE.'s music videos! (I got to meet those guys this year, too. Total inspirations to me and my work.) It could be really fun, I think??
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL MY BITCHES AND HO HO HOS
HAVE A GOOD ONE WITH YOURS!!!!
