How's it going everybody? It's been over 9 months since I last posted anything here.
To be frank, I haven't had any reasons to since most of my time's been devoted to getting myself out of muddy water and working on personal projects outside of this place. Let me put you up to speed!
I left my shitty retail job in December and got back into working as an in-house Graphic Designer for a marketing company.
While it's a huge step up from my previous situation, it's turning out to be another dead-end gig. I'm currently updating my portfolio and animation reel samples in hopes to pick up some freelance work. ( I'm pretty much open for anything relating to 2D Animation, visual development and character design tasks.) I'm also trying to get myself to learn Flash CS6, and so far progress has been pretty good. (I can do frame by frame animation, but I still have a lot to learn with symbols and rigging.)
I still live in Michigan, but I'm still determined to leave this crap hole as soon as I graduate from college, which should be next Fall if my schedule doesn't end up with anymore surprise changes.
My ongoing web comic, The Shufflers, just celebrated it's second year anniversary last month, and it's even published in book form! So if you're wondering why I haven't posted a lot of art, it's because most of my free time is spent working on this series.
Speaking of this project, I still post quite a bit of exclusive content through my Patreon ! All proceeds will go towards helping me pay off bills, saving up for better equipment and a better place to live. In return, patrons receive exclusive downloadable goods, personalized commissions, and early viewings on all my comics. Those who pledge also contribute to reaching major milestones such as private streaming of comics and illustrations I'm working on, and even getting comics to update twice or thrice a week!
So if you enjoyed my work in the past, and want to support me in my comicking and animating endeavors, this is a lovely option!
Again, I'm really sorry for not being so active on DA. If you like, you can follow my Tumblr instead at PanzerMause.tumblr.com.
I will re-blog occasional non-art stuff, but it focuses mainly on my work and plugging my friends' works as well.
