Haven't posted a journal for a while, seems like the time is about right.

So a job I had for the last couple of years came to an end but luckily a gig I'm very much excited about came along. So I'm still busy and embracing the world of freelance again. I might open commissions closer to the summer. I'm also preparing for a local artist alley (and I haven't done anything of this sort for a long while, and big crowds aren't easy for me so it's a bit of a leap there). So I'm working on things, good things I hope.

In other news, I've realised that colouring the comic traditionally had been a reckless decision - I draw comics on A3 sheets so that's more marker ink than I can afford. Besides with my old job ending I've realised how much colouring the same things in the same (very simple) way had been weighing down on me lately. It's weird but that's how that was, I haven't really experienced that misery with any other work I ever did (except maybe the end of my thesis but that's just how higher education is). So now that it's over I'm feel that I love digital as much as traditional again! :la: This makes colouring the comic digitally not a heavy decision, it's just being as varied as I like to be. :D I don't want to stall the story for too long again so I'll probably be tweaking old pages alongside working on new ones.

I think I'll still be making occasional traditional short comics, just not the long story that needs consistently coloured brick buildings and such. :P

This said, I realise me being so slow at figuring it all out probably makes a frustrating webcomic reading experience. I do feel bad about that, but I figure good things always take time, and Cop Story is 100% a labour of love and I have my share of health issues. I don't let it affect my paid work and I'm lucky to have supportive friends and family but Cop Story probably does take the toll when it comes to my brain (which is ironic because in other ways it also keeps me going).

I guess that's all the big changes! Gah, it feels weird writing a journal. I get this feeling that DeviantArt is changing, and I don't like these changes - not enough to make me drop everything and move to tumblr or something (this said, I am active on tumblr again) but enough to get less talkative. Or maybe it's just me getting older. Or both. HOW DO PEOPLE COMMUNICATE
