My Awards

People are crazy enough to give me awards. ^_^ This will be updated regularly as I receive new awards banners [I need a way to keep it organized...*dies*]

.:Total: 161

Ehm.. I've stopped keeping track mostly, so there's probably more than that... ^_^;;

Fashion-always one foot on the ground

...hi

I'm not dead. Just been without Internet for the most part for a good 2 weeks or so. Bleh. UPS is majorly lame [they were supposed to deliver my DSL equipment a looooong time ago].

Ballroom was good. First class today. The new shoes with higher heels have improved my dancing immensely, ironically enough. Also first day of classes today. Crazy, but pretty damn great. I'm excited muchly about my Astro, Japanese, and Hindu Mythology. The rest, not so much. But meh.

I'm looking for another job currently. i feel like I should keep very busy this semester, so you'll probably see less of me prowling around online. I might icon every once in a while, but I really need to focus on my marketing job [for which I actually get paid, sorry guys]. So this is a goodbye [for now] until my semester really gets settled in so I can kick back and not study.

Kobato-it burns! it buuuuurns!

19 CLAMP Icons

Since I have to get on with making graphic things for my *cough* "real" job, I'll just post these for now and hope for the best. Half this post is stuff made from bases at clamp_visual and the other half is me playing around with black and white manga scans. It was fun, indeed. The second half was very much inspired by an icon batch from freak_icons

TRC [x01]
Clover [x02]
Legal Drug [x01]
Chobits [x03]
Kobato [x12]

20 Fashion Icons

A fairly small offering considering me, but it's all I've got now. The ones toward the bottom are prettier because they were made with my demo of PSCS3 [which is amazing, by the way] and that in itself qualifies them to be better. mostly I just wanted to play with Curves and since manga images don't lend themselves to that purpose as readily... we have real life.

Collision Swirl Brushes

A few brushes that I've had forever, but never got to posting. Made with help from a commercial font called Nars from Misprinted Type, which is a lovely font foundry with rather nice freebies, if you like the rough grungy look.

It is named "Collision" because it represents the collision of inspiration and action to me. Enjoy!

Hi.

It certainly has been a while. I guess I got caught up in ballroom, classes, and work. And then came that month-long trip to China that was both lovely and painful in its no-internet-accessing ways.

Anyhow, due in part to cinieme and her nagging [<3] and in part to placing third in the "you haven't updated in forever" thingie in the LJ Animanga Awards, I'll try my best to make a decent icon post. [Thanks to everyone who voted for me, by the way; it was a rather pleasant surprise ^_^] No promises. The batches will probably be smaller than usual.

I'm not tired of iconning. I mentally icon things a lot, actually. It just takes me so long to make icons [perfectionist], and though I sometimes like them at first, I inevitably tire of nearly everything I make after I stare at it long enough. Many such creations are never posted. I also constantly feel the need to revise my style because my attention span is apparently nonexistent, which makes churning out batches even slower, as I like to provide much variation even within a batch.

Also, my computer, Photoshop in particular, is slow as hell. I should have opted for more RAM when I could have. {On that note, anyone know a reliable way of cracking PS CS3? I hear it is much faster...} I've been using the faster desktop since I'm at home this summer, so that should make things happier. And I'm getting a 500GB external hard drive asap, which should also make things happier. [The lappy has a measly 70GB of disk space, barely more than my iPod!]

So this was a very long and rambly post just to say that I'm not dead. And to expect something from me soon.

eSheep?!



eSheep is just about the most awesome thing ever. I urge everyone to try it. It's a really small download and it gives hours of adorable entertainment. I've had mine fall flaming from the sky into a conveniently-placed bathtub as well as be abducted by aliens. There are also more normal things like eating flowers, rolling around, and falling asleep [awww...] Apparently, sheepy also falls in love, but that has yet to happen with my eSheep.

My friend Anita got me hooked on this and it's so cute. It just runs around your desktop as you do other things and, like I said before, it's just plain amusing. Yay! eSheep!
