Two weeks ago, I wrote a journal saying it'd take me like a week to clear out my gallery of old shit. It only took me twice (three times, maybe?) as long.

To make up for all that, I'll post some of the piles of unfinished work I've done over these last two years to my scraps. Because they aren't trash, and I like the ego-stroking that posting unfinished work gives me.

I used to call myself a professional, but that's only because people paid me to tell you why you should hire the local sprinkler repair guy.

This picture is like seven years old now.

Hope this isn't creepy or anything, but I love your writing style and you're one of my favorite writers on dA. :3 First piece I read was Manic Pixie Dream Girl, and then I read everything with Komura in it because she's just fabulous. You've got great characters.

So.. Yeah. ^^ Love your writing

It's not creepy in the least, and thank you for the compliments - and better yet, thank you for the detailed compliments. Knowing specifics for what's done well and what needs work is seriously the best.

If you don't mind me asking, how'd you find MPDG in the first place?

I was searching for any kind of art on a Manic Pixie Dream Girl archetype, and your piece caught my eye and I started reading. What I liked most was the simplicity, the real dialogue and subtle humor. There's so little art that I can find on the Manic Pixie Dream.

Oh, cool :>

I tend to not use DA to search for art anymore. I mean, if I find a good artist, stick to them, but I'm not going out of my way to search, since it gets a little hit-or-miss.

(I was wondering if you've read FPCK, since Komura's name shows up in the preview for every piece she's in except that one.)
