Business as Usual

Hey, did you notice there was a new issue of EMG-Zine up? The summary of this issue: In this month's issue, Ursula talks about the Uncanny Valley; Constanza interviews artist Jasmine Becket-Griffith, Missy walks us through a dragon in mixed media, and Nicole talks about ordinary art supply alternatives. We also have Moon-themed poetry, art and comics. Enjoy!

There is no feature this month. This makes me incredibly sad and guilty, but October was a hellish month for me. I've started to put out some nets for some features for the next couple of months, but I was not together enough to get or write anything for this month.

I made a few tweaks to all of my forums - I really like this latest version of phpBB. Nicely laid out, and MUCH less spam-friendly. The changes in security/registration that I made have worked like a charm. No more accidentally deleted artists! It's fabulous.

Art and Authoring

Here are the covers in progress for the first two parts of City of Lights. Still rough, but coming together:

A few more lines written on them. This is the slowest I've ever written a story... I think it's making me nervous...

Home and Health

Much laundry is done. House still a disaster, but coming together as I crawl out of dark places.


Going to work, now! I got a few hours off this morning, and I've already burned through them!! Tonight, more loads of water (we were LOW!), more stargate atlantis, and more artwork.


Wall decals. I may have to order some of these...

NOTE: If I owe you something, please nudge me!! I feel like I've dropped all my many balls, and I'm picking them up slowly, but I have a nagging suspicion that a few things have been forgotten. Erika, I will get those copies of the anthologies off to you this week!
