Okay, okay, that sounds like such a downer title, and it's not really? Maybe a bit.

I've been saying forever "Oh, I should be more active; I'm gonna do it, just you wait", and nothing happens.

Well, actually, real life happens. Day job, con prep, my inability to finish anything, the Ask Lars tumblr...it's like I have time for everything else but here.

I really want to try, but it's just getting so difficult. I feel like my art gets more notice on tumblr due to the tag/reblog system, to be honest. I'm lucky if any groups want to include my art on the occasion that I post it. I really only have myself to blame since I hardly ever touch this page anymore.

So, what can I do? Do I just leave this to collect dust, only to update it when I need to submit convention portfolios? Or do I dust this account off, and work hard at getting something out of it? I mean, obviously that would be the best course of action, but I wonder if there's a point on a site where popularity has always been the only thing that mattered.

Then again, I feel like I can communicate better with people on here, and that's why it's worth trying again. I won't go into details, but I do have the time to devote to updating this page again for the time being. Actually, I'll be doing more commenting than posting since I don't want to post sketches all the time ^^; Unless that's what you guys want...

I'm pretty much thinking out loud, at this point. I think the best thing for me to do is to try this again, because if it ultimately doesn't work out, I can at least say "Well, I tried and it didn't do much, so I guess I'll move on!". :) It would certainly be better than sitting around wondering "what if..."! I know my art style isn't the prettiest, and I'm far from the best artist when it comes to my fandoms, but at this point I just want to entertain the people who have been here and continue to stick around. Anyone who wants to join in are welcome to.

For those of you who have still managed to stick around, thanks for being so patient with me. I know I'm the most frustrating person to follow since I'm incredibly flaky. Let's see if I can make this work this time.
When it comes to prints, do you prefer group shots or solo pin-ups?

...I spent so much mental energy getting this done that I am not going to be bothered with coming up with a title (Shadi, you're so lazy).

Anyway, I've been looking at photos of various Visual Kei men these days, and the fabulous is seriously rubbing off on me. Also, I've been drawing a lot of flowers lately. I think it's because I really can't wait for winter to go away!

I'm happy. I'm married and have a 19-month old daughter that I take care of while I work from home. It's great!
