First things first;

And in other news and happenings, SUPANOVA Brisbane 2015 was a complete disaster. I didn't sell a damn thing. I didn't feel too bad, every other artist in the alley did poorly as well. It was shit for all of us.

So I've made the decision to not appear at any of the pop culture festivals this year. I got too distracted with doing them and I was trying to rush out artwork which I threw away. I was not satisfied with them. So this year I'll be concentrating on new material. The goal is to get Zenyaku chapter 3 out & one-off Cronulla Security written by Troy Mingramm by next year. And make some new fan prints in the process. However this time I'll be making them traditionally. I'll be honest. I hate computer colouring. It pisses me off. It even pisses me more off when I look at the computer artworks on here and I can't reach that how hard I try. However I feel more confident with acrylic paintings so I'll be doing it the old fashioned way instead. I'll still go to the expo's but as a typical customer to see the fellow associates of course. Comic-wise I'll still use the computer for grey-scalling and lettering but just for that purpose.

That's the new year resolution. Discipline myself harder and spend less time on screens. (Especially facebook, I'm fed up with that place and all the shit my friends post up) Try to get into the habit of doing something artistic everyday.

On the plus side, I got me a nice easel for Christmas! I'll be doing up some bigger paintings.

At the moment I'll be doing warm-ups, then do some small comedic comic stories meant for the phatsville crew, have a crack submitting for Oi! Oi! Oi! magazine (I'll be doing a FAERIES story for that) then alternate between Zenyaku #3 and Cronulla Security. I'll be treating Cronulla Security more professionally, with making up character designs, studies and such (With Zenyaku I just went and did it without any production sketches or practice, but the whole thing so far I've learned a a fair bit out of it, it's been pure trial and error).

Personal news, had the family come over to my house this time to celebrate xmas. Mainly gouging ourselves with food, drinking alcohol, hanging in the pool. Took my nephew to see the new Star Wars movie. I thought it was gonna suck, but it was surprisingly good. But still, I felt like I was watching an updated rewritten version of the 1st Star Wars movie. The ultimate fan-service movie? I think so. But I still accept the franchise's apology.…

I'm hanging for The Hateful Eight.

How was your Christmas/New Year's break?
