Welcome

Congratulations, you are now here - you have arrived somehow at my page. Welcome to my little corner of the internet, and perhaps now you are wondering what next to do. Allow me to offer some suggestions:

:bulletblack: If you are a stalker, please consider shooting me a friend request via Facebook, it will enhance the effect if you are named Candy or maybe Coco. Immediately flood me with lewd, robotic messages - sell me something, sweetheart.

:bulletblack: Subscribe to my Livestream Channel. Mock my nasal voice; listen carefully for the crumbling sound of my fragile ego.

:bulletblack: Watch me here on DeviantArt. Make sure to watch my journals where occasionally I deign to share opinions on the net; have a violent disagreement with me and then Unwatch me.

:bulletblack: Realize that you're about to read all of these. Smash your face into the nearest solid object and die in order to prevent this from happening.

:bulletblack: Go contribute to the Recommended Reading List, make sure to suggest at least thirty books; make sure that everybody knows how outstandingly refined your tastes are.

:bulletblack: Decide that you're completely fed up with my bullshit and unsubscribe to everything but my Sketchblog, where I post exclusively art.

:bulletblack: Develop immediate withdrawal symptoms and subscribe to my vitriolic stream of consciousness via. Twitter.

:bulletred: Alternatively, if none of these seems to be working out, you can always dial the Mental Health Hotline for professional assistance.

My premium membership expires at the end of the first week in February. I really do make use of the premium features. I'll be getting one for myself either way, but I appreciate any help. This website is how my art gets from a dank, lonely folder on my computer to your inbox. Thanks!

Or, if you prefer to donate real cash to the same effect:

First of all, thanks for all the birthday wishes. I don’t usually celebrate my birthday, so it was both overwhelming and flattering to receive so much attention for simply having made it through another year. It’s been an adventure; I moved from a small, rural New England town to a bustling desert metropolis halfway across the country.

I’m going on hiatus,

Specifically, I’m trying to break away from the pressure to commodify my work. It's become increasingly apparent that I need a mental reset and, quite frankly, I'm surprised that I've lasted this long without doing anything outright crazy. Money has been a constant stressor;  it's most of the reason why I've been maniacally darting back-and-forth between projects. I've never had enough financial security to relax, - and listen, I'm not being melodramatic here - I've been flying below the poverty line for years; upcoming food (to prevent me starving) and rent (to prevent me being homeless) have hitherto been a very real concern for me.

I’m finally able to find clients, but it’s difficult for me to handle them. I’m hopelessly recalcitrant. I’ve tried (with some success) to master my ego; I’ve grown up a bit. I’m more reserved and sophisticated with my opinions than I used to be, but the underlying problems still exist. I’m childish; I want to work on things that I really like. It’s just that simple.

I’ve gotten myself a part time job somewhere nearby. I’m going to work and save and slowly chip away at personal projects until something sticks; without the stress of impending starvation looming over my back.

I want to work in game design, and I’m tired of toeing the poverty line; so I’m going to work toward that. I’ve made this incredibly vague Patreon account for those of you who'd like to support my nebulous ambitions.
