How was your year? 

Mine, it was kinda busy, doing more with my artistic life, trying harder to better myself, and vary up myself with painting. The only negative was not getting Zenyaku #2 out in time for Brisbane's Supanova in November. But hopefully I'll be launching two books at the Gold Coast Supanova in April. I'm also willing to take my stuff down to Sydney this year too. 
And music wise, I'm still up in the air about it. I do miss playing with other people and being on stage, but 
I've been taking the comic/art lifestyle more seriously. I've got so much stuff that I want to do, being in a band can be a complete distraction. Plus trying to balance three lives at once nearly drove me insane once before. 

And on another note, a little list of my favourite things of 2014...
Fave comics/manga's of the year: Clive Barker's Next Testament, GANTZ, Terraformas, Sonic Boom #1
Fave indie comics of the year: Megaskank Mansion by Kurt Sibling, Awkwood by Jase Harper, Turbo Supermax #3 by Ryan Vella
Fave albums of the year: BABYMETAL - S.T. (Nothing else, every other new release I brought was either average or just suxed) 
Fave movies of the year: Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, Lucy (Still meaning to see Interstellar) 
Fave show/animation of the year: Kill La Kill, Regular Show 

Well, here's hoping for 2015, the year of the sheep...

Just like what WarAngel said: Thanks for the faves!

If you enjoy my comic art then you should check out my latest comic Shadows of Oblivion #3.

If you’re interested you can find it here:

If not, that’s cool too, I really appreciate the faves and the support!

I actually interested in Shadows Of Oblivion, but you only have #3 available. Do you plan to re-print the first 2 issues anytime soon? 
Shono Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2015  Professional General Artist
I'm sold out of the special editions of issue #1 and 2.

The Regular versions are available here: ShadowsofOblivion.indyplanet.c…

If you are planning to buy the limited covers of issue #3 and want to include issue 0, 1, and 2, let me know and I'll add it to the online store so you can order them all at once.

I should ask, where exactly do you live, fellow countryman? 
pbulman Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2015  Professional
Adelaide. Second most boring city of Australia to live in, which is why I draw a lot!
shaunC Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2015   General Artist
Ah, the city of churches...
