It's 2014!

Disclaimer: Yes, I am aware that some of the content of my page is not suitable to all people. No, I'm not going to take it down, since I like it how it is. Also, since my resources will be at times limited, I will tend to update randomly.

Happy new year!

Well, it's the new year, and there's a lot going on for me. Having graduated from college last May, I'm now currently looking for work around my area. Of course it is going to be hard, but I have hope that I'll soon be able to truly call myself a working man. Even then, however, I still plan on maintaining my dA, adding new deviations and such as I see fit. I might even open up some commissions if I need to.

As for journals, I know this is the first time I updated this in a year (due to using Twitter more often), but I hope to use it more often since there's a lot I wish to do and talk about this year. Besides the job, I also plan on getting a life of my own. As such, I'm planning on keeping everyone updated on how it all goes. (Also, I should create my own journal skin soon; this one's pretty old enough as is.) oh hey look a new journal skin

A world for (some of) my characters

Finally, I've gotten into world construction (via Mark Rosenfelder/Zompist's conworlding books, no less!) so that I can give my OCs Shannon, Gelatria, and Kiki and Izar (and one other character I've yet to develop) a place to be. Considering that I already gave those OCs birthplaces and -dates that don't actually exist on Earth, I might as well expand upon the world they live in. That's not to say that I won't leave my Earthly OCs hanging; I'll still draw them inflating and such! I just think that world building is a neat outlet for my creativity, and I am quite fascinated by stories about other worlds (especially in video games and the like). If people are interested enough, I'll write up a complete corpus of the world I create someday.

I'd like to thank the following people for making this journal skin possible: ginkgografix, miontre and SimplySilent for providing some great tutorials and resources, thespook for providing some useful code snippets to work from (as you did for ginkgografix), AskGooroo for showing me the basic workflow of the CSS needed, Chris Coyier from CSS Tricks for posting an article that helped me get the mood-list to stick to the right, the devs behind ColorZilla for creating the Ultimate CSS Gradient Generator (which I used to make the background), and Juan Pablo del Peral of Huerta Tipográfica for creating the fonts Alegreya and Alegreya Sans, which this journal uses. I would also like to thank my watchers as well as fellow inflation artists for inspiring me to keep drawing! You guys really deserve as much credit as the others!
