Wow um. I haven't been on here in over a year.

Here's what's been going on with me:

-I'm working as a private Japanese tutor, and as an ACT Prep tutor with a company called StudyPoint. I also do freelance translation occasionally.

-I am still living in my parents' house, because part-time tutoring gigs don't even pay for groceries, let alone gas or rent.

-I volunteer once a week at a place called WordPlay in Northside, which offers homework and academic help to local students, free of charge. I also run the bookbinding guild there.

-My grandmother died at the beginning of January, after a short struggle with lymphoma. I just got back a few days ago from a month's stay in Sweden, where I attended the funeral and helped to go through her effects.

-I have not made any major comics or art pieces since I graduated in 2012 (I'm not counting that video piece I did for FotoFocus, because I started working on that while still in school). I've done a few drawings here and there, one painting commission (that I traded for a custom-made cape), and more than a handful of hand-bound books.

-I am still a coordinator with The Denton Affair. In fact, after this Saturday, I will be the most senior coordinator in terms of time spent in the position. Our current theater liaison is leaving, and our art director stepped down in December. The new art director is extremely capable and I think the new liaison will do fine, but it's weird to think that I'm suddenly the veteran out of the three.

The art I DO make is posted on my tumblr. It's sort of time-consuming to post art here. I've been thinking about revamping this blog to do fountain pen reviews (because I suddenly have enough pens to do review of them [I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM]) but that, too, is somewhat time-consuming, so we'll see.
