I generally save this folder for the best art I find, including pieces I like from friends. There's a lot of great artists out there who definitely deserve to be recognized. Keep up the good work, everyone!

May as well start with the good news.

Good News:</u>

After being out of school for over three months, I have been accepted to Illinois State University as a candidate for their Conservation Biology Master of Science program!! I also got a teaching assistantship that provides a 100% tuition waiver and a $1200 / month stipend!! I will be starting there in Spring Term 2016, around January 11.

Bad News:</u>

Aside from all the preparation I now have to make to start school in January and find a new place to live, I just got the news today at a dentist appointment that I will need my wisdom teeth out. They're pushing in on my molars, and if I don't get it taken care of before I go back to school, it's gonna be a lot worse off than it is now. From what my parents have told me, it is going to be The Week From Hell. Granted, I'll be fine while I'm under, but the inevitability of the IV going in and coming out will leave me a nervous wreck, as I am ABSOLUTELY TERRIFIED of hypodermic needles, of any kind, purposed for use on Homo sapiens. Both my parents suffered nausea from the aftermath of anesthesia, and both had to go back for clearing up infections, and there is no way avoiding that possibility for me. My only hope, quite literally, is that a thirty-years' difference in technology and medicine can help alleviate some of the discomfort.


All in all, I could really use some serious prayers right now. That I can get everything straightened out for grad school alright, that I can find a way to tackle the stress with going in for surgery, and that I have as little trouble as Godly possible after the surgery.

This inconvenience also means further setbacks on my already long list of drawings. More time curled up in the fetal position on the couch sobbing while stuffing my face with ice cream will sadly mean less time for art. And I have a lot of drawings I want to get done before grad school starts since my free time will virtually drop to 0.

** Note on prizes: davidfenton1 and Grawey211, I have not forgotten about the rest of your prizes, but because of the new situation, it very well could take longer to get them done than expected. My greatest apologies for the delays! I won't mind if you send me reminders every now and then!


So there you have it. Don't know when my next journal will be, save for the fact it will be after The Week From Hell and any accompanying complications are completely over.



I appreciate all the support, you guys!

I'm signing a lease for an apartment in Normal that will start once I move down on the weekend immediately following New Year's. Still in the process of researching different professor's projects to decide on a research adviser for my thesis at Illinois State.

As it turns out, we are having difficulty finding a good, local oral surgeon on our plan, and so it looks like we'll be shooting more for spring break for scheduling a surgery. It's not life-threatening, and I still haven't been feeling any pain, so we figured it would be better to not rush into things.

On the other hand, my dad is actually the one having surgery right now. He was admitted to the hospital at the beginning of last week initially for a colon infection, but it turns out the infection was actually started because of cancerous growth in the colon resulting in a small tear in the colon wall. The infection has since been cleared up, but now the cancer needs to be taken care of. Right now the plan is to set up a bypass to keep the bad section of the colon clear while allowing him to resume a normal diet, that way he can start chemo for the cancer on the colon and some small spots of colon cancer on the liver straightaway. 

Thanks again for your continued prayers and support.

Hello! I'm not sure if you remember me but we talked awhile back and I faved your comic.
EagleFlyte Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes I think I do! How are you?
Azarius-Flashfang Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2015
Meh, got through with a bad week but I like to think next week will go well especially since Thanksgiving break is around the corner. There was one bright side though, a friend of mine asked me if I did requests wanting me to draw one of his characters. This news pleases me because it means that people like my work enough to ask for it. I figure by taking requests I can work my way up to eventually asking for commissions. I've posted some pieces recently if you're interested. Say how's the art stuff with you these days?

Just trying to get as much done off my art list as I can before grad school completely takes over my life XD

Do you do art trades?
EagleFlyte Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
No, not currently. I already have a ton of drawings on my to-do list that still need to be done.

If I decide to open trade in the foreseeable future I'll let you know!
SpeedStingerDash Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
