I can't believe it's only been a year and a half since I last posted

It feels like 1000 years.
I update pretty regularly on http://blindsprings.tumblr.com if you want to follow me for more Tammy shenanigans!

Updates since last I posted:

1. I got hired to do character designs for an unreleased Zynga game!
2. I got hired by a startup studio in August 2012 and am art directing/just literally arting a new ipad/iphone/facebook bubble game!
3. I got hired to do character designs on Dragon Story!
4. I finished the Black Torch comic and we held a kickstarter for the project which got successfully funded and books have started being sent out!
5. I'm on page 9 of the Blindsprings, which is the comic that Tammy features in, and will be posting it starting on Halloween!!!

Everything is turning up roses it's super nice to finally be working in art and I really love what I am doing, but I'm continuing to better myself-- I've been working on backgrounds and layouts, better character designs and my work has started to get a lot tighter!!


If there are still people who follow me here who'd like me to update my LJ more frequently, pipe up! I spent a little while tonight looking at my past posts on here, and have to say that I really appreciate all of the support I had from increasingly amazing people! It's weird to think that I was a part of a really cool artists community here on LJ and I still prefer it to the frenetic energy of tumblr, even if I contribute to that a lot myself.

Anyway! Hullo to anyone out there still following me after a year and a half of no posts!!


I have twenty pages to ink and colour by friday.

/gotta do it
/totally not sleeping for four days


I'm only going to plunk the first page layout here, but! In less than a month I need to get this comic done and I finally have the storyline condensed enough that I think it makes sense and also it moves a lot quicker so that I can make good use of the 20 pages I originally proposed to do.



Redoing Ebony Black so it takes place (in part) in a modern setting so I have more diverse clothing styles and junk in my portfolio.

THIS IS NOT COMPLETE this is a colour mockup thinger ALSO CADENCE'S HEAD: ENORMOUS.

Some Scribbles

The WIP sketch of the cover page for the comic, a deadline which is coming up fast!

And also a sketch of Ember/Alicia from Blind Springs-- wanted to get her androgynous body down.


My resolution this year, art wise, is to have forethought in my drawings, as I tend to just sketch willy nilly; most images I post on here have just been artistic happenstances, I never sit down with a clear idea of what I am going to draw other than perhaps WHOM I am going to draw.
The other resolution I have is to have this comic published online by June, with several chapters complete before posting, as well as to have a kickass portfolio so I can get hired when my lease is up on this apartment.
