Seems that May has already come around, which means this year is already a quarter of the way through. My that time does fly away so now is a good time to review how things been going so far in the year.
Commissions - The ball was rolling since 2012 and hasn't quite stopped yet here. Noticeable artists like Seonidas [link]
put out a lot of pieces to showcase the singular and transforming nature of my many characters. Kudos to him. Another individual was MMGPeve [link]
who did a whole host of copic pieces too. Some other noteworthy occurrences on this front was hard work of Viroveteruscy [link]
in presenting our special Valentine event. Plus the return of art Lunardiaries [link]
with Jodi. Still to more art to bear with this time Fred Perry [link]
doing some art for my characters. As things roll on I'll be gathering up arts and looking for new artists for Elaine's anniversary in two months.
Story-wise - Things been a lot slower on this side then I would have liked at the moment. So far only gotten two Behind the Writing Desk done along with two other tales. One of them being the birthday present to Strangerataru [link]
where I took a dive into the surreal. The bigger impact was the release of the fairly sizable origin tale of Jodi/Wild Kitty. I am quite pleased with the reception received for her and hope to do more with as the time allows.
On the other front, the tales some people might be more concern about are slowly unfolding. Paragraphs here, some outline design over there. The work is slow, an expansive tale such as the Kingdoms-Rebirth needs a particular leeway in material to carry itself forward to avoid any larger breaks. Elaine too has some trouble she needs to solve in time for her Anniversary. Also the state of Bedlam might be reveal in some troublesome case issues. Jackie and the rest of the Hollow Hunters seem to be shaking up some hornet nest too.
Character-wise - The new year saw the slightly informal introduction of two more characters into the staple of my menagerie. Tish and Amber both design originating from Cearenbow have joined the fold of the Paranormal Control story-verse. Furthermore we've also teased at numerous adoptable who will see expanded roles soon enough. Not to mention who can forget the impact Jodi and Wild Kitty to the scene a month ago?
But at the moment I am in the process of refining two more character concepts. Arts and stories already in the works, they're amusing types for me to indulge a bit. Something to go with the coming summer heat hopefully. Hope they're not too hot or swinging for folks.
So that's just a basic roundup of how things are so far in the year. Also brought to my attention that I surpassed 200K views so kudos to all of you for coming around to enjoy my collected arts and the occasional tale.
