It's even colder and rainier than I expected, so that will take some getting used to on the off chance that I decide to move there. However, there are some nice views and hiking trails thanks to all the mountains, and downtown Seattle's got some great seafood shops at a location called Pike Place. I managed to cook up a nice bouillabaisse for my friend before leaving as a thanks for providing me a place to sleep for my stay in Seattle.

Sorry that it’s taken me so long to talk about my trip. I’ve been recovering from a cold and, more importantly, coming to terms with the fact that I’m probably going to be stuck with my part-time job for the time being. The two-week trip I took to Seattle was a mixed bag. I sent out well over a dozen letters and portfolios to various video game companies asking for tours of their studios, and the few that even responded to my emails and phone calls declined my requests. Worse still, in the process of job searching, I realized that I might not have what it takes to become a video game illustrator. While I don’t need to learn how to program a game from the ground up like I initially feared, what I do need to know almost justifies going back to college. In the end, I’m not sure that video games are a good fit for me.

Still, visiting Seattle wasn’t a complete waste. Through the Seattle Games Cooperative, I learned about, a social networking site designed to help organize offline get-togethers, and managed to meet some artists through said site. I got some useful advice on how to create and organize a portfolio for video game companies. Some of this advice, such as sketching from real life, learning how to do character sheets, and starting a tumblr account, might be useful for pursuing other careers. In addition, I was able to use to find a writing group in St. Louis that might be able to provide feedback on Thirdborn’s writing.

But that was a week ago. Now I’m back in St. Louis, taking care of my parents’ home while they’re visiting Poland. I’ve been rethinking my plans for the year and the direction Thirdborn will take, but I’m not going to give up just yet. Maybe sharing my work with fellow writers and attending Anime St. Louis will give me the motivation I need.

Last but not least, my journal memes are still open:
  • Mood: Isolated
  • Playing: Mansions of Madness, Bejeweled Blitz, Air Patriots
  • Eating: Lasagna, Chicken Noodle Soup

4 x 4 inches, 300 DPI. Can be head only or bust shot.

Your commission can be of your characters or my characters. Fanart is free, but I'll only do a maximum of 4 per month. You can also do an art trade in lieu of paying for a commission.

Please provide some images for reference. If you want, you can also make requests regarding the character's pose and/or actions. Please keep your requests around a PG-13 level (so nothing overly violent, sexual, or fetishistic). 

Expect commissions to take about a week to complete. Send me a note with your email so I can send you a full-resolution PNG copy of the image when I'm done.
