aka the year everything I drew had to be kept a secret

I think 2016 has possibly been one of the best years of my life! I was never really confident in myself as an artist before but this year I started doing professional work and it’s been an incredible experience!
My first gig was to do a bit of freelance character design work for Warner Bros on their recently announced BABYMETAL show. Right as that started, more opportunities suddenly came up by coincidence! While I was working with WB, I had to take two tests, one for Studio Trinket (Battle Chef Brigade) and the other for Marvel (Marvel’s Spider-man). And I was also about to leave for Hawaii for Kawaii kon so I had to prepare for that too…. wow April was an intense month…. But anyways haha I got through it and passed for Studio Trinket and did some freelance character work with them! Battle Chef Brigade is such a beautiful and fun game you guys have to check it out!
For Marvel, I actually didn’t get the job at first and that really hit me hard. But later my friend at Cartoon Network offered me to be a freelance storyboard revisionist on The Powerpuff Girls and my confidence was lifted! I was planning on staying there for a while but after a few weeks I received an email from Marvel saying that an extra position opened up and they were offering it to me. I remember screaming and running out to the living room to tell my roommates haha! I started in the beginning of June and it’s been amazing working with such a talented and friendly crew and I’m just so thankful for this opportunity to learn from them.

I’ve got a great job, the best friends and coworkers, a comfortable apartment, cute cats, and a supportive family! Life has finally been good lately! Goodbye 2016 and hello 2017!!

if it was up to me, cooking would be its own skill tree and you would have to unlock tiered recipes, there would be cooking-related spells and benifits to being a fighter cook, a thief cook, or a mage cook or all three, benifits from having alchemy experience and perks in alchemy that are enhanced by being a good cook. and there would be whole cooking related quests and adventures and you could become a famous chef and bring joy and delicious things to a cold and barren war torn land. what is better than a battle chef? nothing
