I found out today that I had received another Daily Deviation. Needless to say, I am absolutely stunned. Thank you so much homunculus888 and Thiefoworld!
Thanks to everyone who has supported me over the years, you're all amazing!
Reason for my recent inactivityHi Everyone! So as you may have noticed, I haven't been posting any new art for awhile. I thought it was about time I let everyone know what's going on with me these days.
Earlier this year, I was hired at a game company that makes an educational online math game for kids called Prodigy. Since then, I've been super busy and haven't had much time for personal art. On top of that, the company is now slowly transitioning me into a lead position, which means I'll soon be even more busy than before.
I really want to get to a point where I can carve out at least a couple hours every day for personal art because I miss posting on wonderful art communities like this. But at least in the short term, I'm going to be remaining inactive.
Sorry about that. I hope you're all doing well.
Intro Cut Scene Thing That I DidHi everyone, long time no update! Here's something I created for the company I'm currently working with.
This is an intro cut scene for the educational online math game, Prodigy. I was responsible for creating the illustrations and overlay images.
My New JobHi everyone,
I want to apologize for my recent inactivity. I'm currently working as a game artist at a studio here in Ontario. It's a great job, but very time consuming, so I'm not left with much spare time at the end of the day. I do want to try and post things at least once in awhile, but we'll see how things go.
As always, a huge THANK YOU to everyone that's supported me thus far. You guys rock!

I'm Back!Hello everyone!
After a very long hiatus, I have finally decided to return to dA. It has been extremely encouraging to see that people are still dropping by my page and leaving comments/favourites on a daily basis.
A lot has happened since I last posted, the most relevant of which is that I have teamed up with children's book writer, Jonathan S. Skye, and am now currently working as a full-time illustrator on a series of novels called "Flurry the Bear".
So far, we have released three books from the series, with a fourth one already on the way! The books are available for purchase on Amazon.com:
Flurry the Bear is a novel series for children ages 9-12 and older, and follows the story of a teddy bear named Flurry who embarks on many epic adventures. Besides being in charge of cover illustrations, I am also in charge of creating promotional artwork as well as

ALL Next Gen Fun Facts!This is fan made!
All Next Gen Fun Facts! :iconwoootplz: Everything from my previous fun facts journals as well as some new ones are in here I probably won't make any more new Fun Facts journals. Instead, I'll just add them in here and let you know if there are any updates (if they are worth mentioning of course) I'll probably add more to the younger characters later since I'm still developing them. HOLY FRICK THIS JOURNAL IS LONG!
If this journal in particular is too long, you can look at these kinda shorter ones that narrow the characters down by category

The 30 Day Character Development Challenge~![Stole off someone's facebook]
1.) Describe your character's relationship with their mother or their father, or both. Was it good? Bad? Were they spoiled rotten, ignored? Do they still get along now, or no?
2.) What are your characters most prominent physical features?
3.) Name one scar your character has, and tell us where it came from. If they don't have any, is there a reason?
4.) How vain is your character? Do they find themselves attractive?
5.) What's your character's ranking on the KINSEY SCALE?
6.) Describe your character's happiest memory.
7.) Is there one event or happening your character would like to erase from their past? Why?
8.) Day of Favorites! What's your character's favorite ice cream flavor? Color? Song? Flower?
