Slow down, 2015! April already? My ol' bones can't keep up!

Hoping you all had a great Easter! April's got a couple of notable dates I'll quickly mention.

First a big holla to my mate Ben aka TheBlueFruit, whose birthday is on the 16th! Make it a great one, buddy! We'll celebrate together soon! Maybe a film? And the biggest film coming out over here this month is Age of Ultroon. Can't wait to see it!

Last of all, on the 25th my country celebrates ANZAC Day, commemorating all who served and died in wartime. My country might not always be the most progressive, but at least we're still a free, unoppressed place. That's pretty cool. 2015 is the centenary of the Gallipoli landings, a pivotal (if not very successful) campaign of World War 1. So if any other Aussies or New Zealanders read this, remember to pay your respects on April 25th.

I've been a bit infrequent on here, as you may know. I'm looking at spreading out to other sites and perhaps getting one of my own going, which would be super neat! But I'm still alive, still in good health and in pretty damn good spirits  ;)

I've still got lots of stuff to share with you guys when I can. Patience please - as I said not long ago, life will always come first. And life (and the very near future) looks pretty good at the moment  :D

Please check out my wonderful Leily's page - BlossomPPG's her name here. As they said (sang) in the Jungle Book, "I wanna draw like you-ou-ou!"  Or something similar XD       Love ya, angel!

Be good everyone! and just quick - Josh, buddy, you out there?

I know I'm getting in a a bit late, but I felt I oughta say something.

Last week, pop-culture icon and sci-fi legend Leonard Nomoy passed away at 83. I first heard the news on the morning news program at about 7am the day after (time zones are funky) and I was a bit out-of-it 'cause my alarm had only just gone off. Needless to say, not the happiest of news to begin the day, but at the same time, I was glad he left such a profound legacy.

Those who know me know I'm a big Trek fan; have been since I was 10. However, thanks to my nation's weird broadcastting schedule I've never seen the original show broadcast here. My first ep I watched way back when was a Next Gen called "Brothers". So I had to get the classic series on DVD. But through those episodes, the extras on each disc, and various written works since that time, I learned how much impact Spock had on the franchise as well as how conflicted Mr. Nimoy was about being known for that role.

But he embraced it, I learned later. He returned to the franchise in the 2009 film. He referenced his best lines in the 3rd Transformers movie (NOT as bad as the 2nd) and, if memory serves me right, he even parodied his age in a Bruno Mars video clip. No matter if it was in the 1960's, the 21st century or anytime in between, he was immensely enjoyable to watch.

Leaonard's legacy will live on (and prosper) for a long time to come. Zach Quinto keeps the character alive, but there's nothing like the original. Would've loved to meet him in person but I'm glad he had a long, fulfilling, influential life. Thanks for inspiring so many people in so many ways.

Vale Leonard Nimoy.

10 years ago, a certain TV show thundered back into living rooms around the world. Now, after 3 new Doctors and a 50th anniversary special to name just a couple of things, Doctor Who is still going strong.

A massive Happy Chinese New Year for all those out there who celebrate it. This year is the year of the Goat! I could be horribly wrong, MONUMENTALLY wrong, but I THINK I was born in the year of the hare/rabbit. How 'bout you guys? What's your Chinese Zodiac?

Sorry things have been a bit quiiet since the end of the alphabet. It's been a busy time and thus tough to get pics up. That as well as trying to be spoiler-free. I've got a lot of pics that I simply can't put up yet. If I work hard on the next few stories, though, it'll be alright.   :)

And as I mentioned not long ago, life in 2015 will definitely take priority.

Couple of quick shout-outs before I wrap it up - BeeAre, hope you're feeling better since the start of February. My best wishes for a speedy rebound! Josh if you're out there, drop me a comment or note!

And my wonderful Leily, are you as excited as I am ?!  :3   <33

Please take care, everyone, and be wonderful to each other! Stick around; I'll have more fo you all soon!

On ya, guys!   :)

PS: Whoops, looks like I WAS monumentally wrong. I'm told I was really born in the year of the Snake  :/

Happy New Year, everyone! 2015 will be a great year. I just know it.

In 2015, I'd like to get back to doing what I believe I do best here - telling stories and bringing a menagerie of characters to life. I regret that I never got to finish Talisman, but I've got a couple of ways of summing up what happened. From there, I'll begin work on Antithesis which is a tale of conflict, courage, heartbreak and facing inner demons. I look forward to introducing everyone to Drax, the antagonist for the story. And then there's the question of whether the close bonds of the two main heroes of the piece will emerge intact. I intend to introduce new characters (and some old favourites) in order to steer my work in a more diverse direction. And although I won't be drawing as much once it gets going, and it'll certainly take time to write stuff anyway, I've still got plenty of leftover stuff to share!

Thanks to everyone who supported the Alphabet project! Took a while but we all survived it  ;)

You can find Drax from the next tale, or letter D. Also, check out my "cover image" of Antithesis, also in my gallery!  :)

2015 will be a year of progress. I intend to get into a new line of work soon, which I am very excited about, and I also plan to do some travelling, which I'm even MORE excited about! Naturally, since IRL stuff takes priority, it will no doubt take me away from DA at times. I'm sure you understand. I'll make sure to let you all know if I go anywhere or take breaks etc. I know I can count on your support!

Lastly, could I take a moment to wish my beloved girl Leily a wonderful, happy, belated birthday. 25! XXV! Vinte e cinco! Nijugo! Same as me! I know I wished it already but a bit extra is fine XD

Sorry your card will be a little late . . . forgive me?    2015 will be awesome for both of us, doncha know?   ;3

Hope everyone had a great New Year celebration. And I wish you all the very best with whatever resolutions you aim for this year.

Here's to a new year. A great year. For us all!
