Hello everyone!

It has been a long long time!! So I think a status update is needed for all who still stop by.

1. The SS/HG fan book:
          I still plan to pull it together. I hope before the release of Deathly Hallows PT2.  Work has informed me that one of my projects will be put on hold come June so maybe then.

2. New SS/HG art:
          I think it is obvious that my time with ss/hg fan art is coming to an end. I haven't done all that I wanted to do but my passion for it has ended. There will be a few new ss/hg art pics in the fan book so that's something to look forward to.

3. Request or commissions:
           Sorry I am unable to do request and commissions. They and I put too much pressure on me! lol

4. Deviantart
         I think I only check here once a month so I apologize for not answering notes and messages in a timely matter. I feel awful about it. I do read all the comments and love them all so thank you.

I think that is all anyone really wants to know so there you have it.


Also please check out a new music video featuring my SS/HG art created by :iconmiranell: www.viddler.com/explore/Mirane…


Hoping you hear from me again soon

****UPDATE*****

So, the book is still coming along. I got side tracked with some freelance work. That being said, I will have the book hopefully in my hands before the end of the month.  

Sorry to torture you all! I am kicking my but to have it done in the next week because I will be attending the Harry Potter exhibit in Boston at the Museum of Science on October 25th! Anyone else going? It would be cool to meet some people there!


*******************************************

I am in the middle of putting together a SS/HG fan art book of all my favorite pieces that I have done plus five or six new pieces not yet published on DA and never will be, maybe.  

Would anyone else be interested in a copy?

The cost will be that of publishing and shipping.

I will not be making any profit from it. This is a fan for fan art book. As we all know JKR and WB own the HP universe and characters.  

Also I am at the point of putting the book together were suggestions are welcomed. So please feel free to state what you would like to see. example: some of my racer pieces, or tutorial, or sketches, etc, etc...

Oh, and the book will not be ready until August!

Thanks

Just wanted to see if it would be worth it to do again and get a estimate on how many I would need to print.

I am truly surprised that I am missed, so thank you!

I see some are wondering what happened to some of my pics.

I took them down because I was tried of looking at them or I just felt they sucked, so they went bye bye. Sorry. I also took down all my pics at shillusions.com. I was getting one to many stupid and immature comments at that site and since I really can't reply to the poster like here on DA, I took down my work.

I am still busy with school and will be for another year. STILL working on that thesis.

I started a job in my field, FINALLY!! It's at an animation studio in NYC. So I commute from PA to NY. I leave home at 7am and get home at 9pm, when I am lucky.

It's been hard finding time to sit down and drawn some SS/HG goodness. I feel so guilty when I'm not working on my thesis. I'll post something new soon so keep watching!

Thanks
Sorry for not updating like I use too. I have been busy with all the ugliness of RL. 2006 started shitty and ended shitty and 2007 is on the same path.

My poor beloved Sherlock had to be put to rest on Saturday :( Boots and I are trying to deal with his passing. He would have been 15 years old on February 14th.

Though RL has kept me from updating I also haven't been inspired in the SS/HG realm. It seems that most of my fav authors are trapped in the ugliness of RL also and some of my favorite stories haven't been updated in months. Though I do recommend everyone go read "His Draught of Delicate Poison" by Subversa. I have read it about ten times and will read it another ten.

owl.tauri.org/stories.php?psid…

I am wondering what it would take to get Subversa to write a sequel. I know all about the Christmas one but I NEED MORE!!!  

Another huge turn off is the merry-go-round I have been reading on some yahoo group. All I have to say is that the members who post all must be on the same cycle because every post reads like it is that time of the month. I left once, but came back.

Well I am sure some may not like me any more so I shall go back to my lurking and waiting for my RL to get better. Hopefully some inspiration will find me and an update will follow.

Thanks – Usagistu
Sorry no more cards left :(
My last semester of Graduate School starts today...

So what does that mean... Less updates

I will be lurking and popping in and out

******************************
RANT

Ok, I wanted to scream at the world yesterday when I was getting notes and emails about links not working. I won't go into a long explanation. This is why I lurk and this is why I'll go back to it. (After the contest)


***********************************************
Posters and Postcards

The second poster will only be offered to the winners of the :iconseverus-hermione: contest. Sorry

BUT!! On a brighter side I have decided to make postcard prints. There will be two different sets and each will have four different pictures. I have already decided on the eight that will be printed. Postcards will be $8.00 a set and $2.00 shipping anywhere.

********************************************
Recommendation

:icongiga-leo: Makes very witty comics called Bad Chi based on what ever is happening in his life at the moment. If you have the time and enjoy sarcasm then you'll love BAD CHI, so go and visit him!!

Also, there are tons of SS/HG fics that I read and just never get around to making a pic for, so I'll be posting a rec here for those looking for something.

This month's rec is….

  Augury and Ardor by SnapeySnax

Summary: Hermione is abducted by Voldemort and his Death Eaters in order to fulfill a prophecy

Can be read here: ashwinder.sycophanthex.com/vie…

I am very late in telling everyone about PotterShare!! This is a great community on DA for HP artist and fans to chat! Stop bye and say hello, get sorted and make friends.

Here's the link: chat.deviantart.com/chat/Potte…

I have made a new SS/HG pic that will be turned into a poster and offered up. I'll be posting the pic before the end of the week… hopefully… maybe Monday.

I decided to create the new poster for the :iconseverus-hermione: contest. Some who may want to enter have the first poster, so to get them into the contest they have an op to win the new one.

Of course I'll let the winners have their choice of either to be fare.

This new piece I think will please many, as the couple will be touching and that's all I am giving away!! lol

:iconseverus-hermione: is having a new contest and the winner gets one of my SS/HG posters! Details here severus-hermione.deviantart.co…

WOW! What a nice surprise! Thanks so much too :iconohmgueil: for catching it!

Sorry I haven't updated in a while. I have been very ill and have been in the hospital all this week. :( It seems the reason why I have been getting so ill is because I had a gallbladder-stone the size of a golf ball in my gallbladder, which caused it to only be working at 11%, so it had to go.

I only wanted to post this because my friend :icongiga-leo: told me, while I was in the hospital, I had reached 100K and I just wanted to thank everyone. My recovery time is still a week and I am just sleeping and on pain meds (that give me nightmares). So once I am better I'll post a lovely new pic as a thanks to everyone.

THANKS AGAIN EVERYONE FOR LIKING MY WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My friend :iconshuuki: just bought the Kizuna: Kizuna Kodaka Signature Editon (2005)

She informs me that in the special features you can see the creator, Kazuma Kodaka doing a signing at a japanese book store in NY and guess what...

Yours truly is there too!!!! Well my hand and voice as she signs my Kizuna Doujinshi. Hahahahaha… I am forever on a yaoi DVD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So if you have this DVD you can hear my child like voice as I gush all over one of my fave manga artist.

Didn't I say I was nerdy!?
Sorry no more posters :(
