HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!
That's right! I turned 23 on October 1st! I love Birthdays! For one whole day it really is all about me! I had an awesome day filled with Birthday Wishes from Family, Friends, and of course all you, my friends on DeviantArt!
A lot has happened since I posted my last status update. For one, I began seeing a Life Coach! That's right, I'm seeing a life coach! My parents thought it would be good for me and I ahve to agree I am pretty excited about it. I had my first meeting with him on my Birthday, and he is a great guy! Together, I hope to achieve my personal and career goals, build a better social life, and finally get rid of my anxiety issues!
Speaking of Career, EXCITING NEWS! I finally found an artist willing to draw my Empress Comic! Now, since all the details haven't been hashed out quite yet I'm not going to tell you who it is. All I can say is that he is a friend of mine on DA, his art style is good, and after having looked over the script says he would love to do it! Naturally, he won't do it for free. I plan on raising the funds through Kickstarter so I can pay him and we can make a WebComic! But first things first, We're working on some character concepts for the Kickstarter to give people an idea of what the comic is like. Its all coming together!
But perhaps my most exciting news of all is that I HAVE A NEW JOB!! I unfortunately got laid off from Costco a 2 months ago, and after much trial and Error I have managed to land an Artist Assistant position at Gannett Ad and Design right her in Des Moines! It's a job that is right up my alley with my majors, has a laid back friend-helping environment, and the people are just awesome! One of my new fellow Artists Assistances is even a comic book artist right here on Deviant Art! A Mister Devin Parker aka mysterycycle . He's a really awesome guy and we have lots of conversations about comic books and superheroes! I've gone through training all this week and I can say that I'm ready to tackle my new job!
So that's what's been going on in my life. I would again like to thank everybody for the Birthday Wishes! I would especially like to thank DaErkka for this awesome Birthday drawing of my newest villain, White Glove , and I would like to thank Zigwolf for offering me to give me a birthday drawing once he is done with his big move! I think I'll have him do one of my newest heroes(hint hint).
Thank you all and Happy Birthday to me!!
