I mean my username is a mixture of a cocktail pun and a joke on the fact that white folks can't pronounce my Hawaiian birthname. Coming up with unique usernames is hard. I feel like it's not something that other people can choose for you. It's gotta be something that you wanna be called, sort of a nickname for yourself, by yourself.

Puns, favorite colors, animals, seasons, foods, and etc. can be good starting places. Fiddle around on a piece of paper. Write a bunch of nonsense names. Say them all out loud. Either go with the one that sounds stupidest or best. Show some friends what you've come up with.

If you want an old tossout, one of my drag name ideas before settling on Evan Essence was Blaze Greenman, going for that durr hurr 4/20 joke. Another dumb one was Dick Richardson. Aren't we all glad I listened to my friend's suggestion instead?

When all else fails, random name and object generators are your friends, really.

Yeah they can get my approval when they actually get actualized, lol, not while they're still being little buggers.

My Paypal is hooked up to my debit card, if that's any help to you. You can choose to keep things in a Paypal account or to transfer them to your debit card for a small fee.

I have found the true meaning of terror.

It's when a wasp decides to land on your glasses and crawl around your face and the inside of your jacket hood.

Guess who's not going back outside today?

I used to literally puke if I ate broccoli, but it's fine now.

I still can't even eat cooked onions because my body will freak out thinking it's some kind of poison. Not good for people with acid reflux either, from what I understand. Too much sulfur or sulfate or whatever. Something to do with the element of sulfur. No bueno.

I used to abhor certain music genres on principle (you know, one of those "I hate pop and rap because I like 'real' music" stupid elitists), but now I try to appreciate everything as is. I may say "except country"--but as soon as I hear that Carrie Underwood song start I am literally screaming "AND I DUG MY KEY INTO THE SIDE OF HIS PRETTY LITTLE SOUPED UP FOUR WHEEL DRIVE, CARVED MY NAME INTOOO HIS LEATHER SEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAATS", and actions speak louder than words.

I will, however, forever stand by the statement that Taylor Swift becoming famous was a mistake.

Head still looking a little big, but I like the variety, at least. Might steal that idea later for sketch ideas.

Most of my stuff was like random dancing and stuff so I focused a lot more on cleaner animation but yeah I grew up on the days of stick figures on crack, just before asdf. There was an entire website dedicated to stick figure games that I seem to remember, and boy were they all fantastic.

Small children just make my anxiety skyrocket, and then they're incredibly known for saying and doing things that frankly don't make sense to anyone but them, which makes a mess for those of us who have the ability to use logical thinking.

I don't know about that, especially with the some on here that are from like, late elementary and early middle school.

And this is why I hate small children. :push: Ungrateful little buggers.

Yeah a lot of merch vendors upcharge the everloving crap out of their stuff. I saw one selling these little dragon models for like forty, ffity bucks even, and I saw a gas station on the way to the con selling the exact same stuff for four to eight bucks. If it looks like medium quality and it's over forty bucks, it's probably a rip-off. If you can't determine quality, probably don't buy it if it's over twenty. But that's just my advice.

I'm pretty glad that my first few cons were small local ones. I will say, though, that it probably isn't a super duper smart move to like, try to talk to the artists at the artists' alley of the con about working with you unless you have money like, on the spot and ready for them to get started working with you. Otherwise, it comes off like you're asking for free stuff, and that's a big no-no. I don't know that anyone would, but some cons have rules against "haggling vendors" for any reason, and like, they could legit call security and have you kicked out of the entire con (with the potential of no refund) if they're that kinda person, so just be aware of that.

Head's a bit large on the top right figure on the second page, but it looks like you progressed and got around to getting the "proportions" down. I'm liking the new variety. And here we see Suuper drawing dudes!

(Yeah, I've tried quite a few times to get them down in group shots with up to twelve or even sixteen characters per page, but I don't have one solid collection of them from any one era of my art. I've tried character sheets, too--they're strewn through my old clipboard case. They're quite a few years old, though.)

Great work on all the new stuff. Those BnHA ones definitely look like the kind of prints that vendors sell at conventions. Such good quality...

I'm glad that the work's been steady for you. Just don't forget to take a little time for yourself! (I say, with a sleep schedule that wakes me up in the wee hours of the morning and puts me to bed in the late afternoon).
