Onward Into 2017

By on January 16th, 2017

…like a herd of geriatric turtles, as it happens. :) We were sidelined over the holidays by that horrible flu/chest infection thing that seemed to be sweeping the country, which put a damper on the holidays until well after New Years. Horrible stuff!

I’ve very slowly been getting back into the swing of things with work, much more slowly than I’d anticipated which has meant the schedule backing up a bit. No writing done at all, and very little personal artwork. The image below is one of the more recent ones that I’ve done.

I did chose two authors rather than one for the cover contest, as they were both interesting and diverse. I want to read each of them! Both authors have been contacted, and I hope to be able to start on covers as soon as possible.

Hardly any gaming has been done (between being sick and trying to catch up on work). Some Overwatch, which I love madly and am also frustrated by. I keep thinking about going back to FFXIV, as it’s the only MMO that I can see myself doing instances and raids in, but I’ve been lazy.

The cosplay projects sit half-completed, and my front room workroom is a disaster of scraps of fabric and leather, hot glue guns, rivets and lost pins (knock on wood, we haven’t stepped on any yet…but it’s going to happen).

So, I suppose that’s it for the first two weeks of the new year…just trying to kick myself into gear.

    That is beautiful art, Ravven! Though not a genre I read much, it would make me pick up the book. Amazing you!

    I really love this piece. <33

    And oh god, the pins. I am constantly dropping my cross stitch needles and losing them for weeks on end. I don't know how.. they're gold and we have blue floors. And we still haven't stepped on them!!

    I was trying to be really careful, and still they’re EVERYWHERE. So nervous about embedding one in my foot! :D
