Stay tuned for a StupidFox Art Contest coming up later this month with Stupid Foxy Prizes ! Participants will be able to submit through DeviantArt and Tumblr!
Please excuse the comic hiatus! I am slowly working on new comics between actual work-related things. It takes me longer to work on comics than the sketches and single-images I've been posting lately since they require more focus from me. Basically, it's easy to sneak-sketch while I'm on my lunch break (or slacking off at work ) but difficult to concentrate on working on comics when I'm worrying someone is looking over my shoulder. I've made mistakes before because of this, such as saving over files and merging layers I wasn't supposed to touch, uggghh.
IN OTHER NEWS, StupidFox will be visiting the East Coast at Connecticon in Connecticut, July 7 - 10 ! For more info, check out: connecticon.org/ !

You can schedule your deviations now? That's so convenient and something I will probably forget to use!
I can change the size of thumbnails in my journal? Okay, that is actually pretty fun and innovative!
DeviantArt "Undiscovered" section? Love it so far because then I can find new artists and I don't have to look at naked women all over the front page all the time, making the site NSFW.
But when will DeviantArt stop being laggy and have issues whenever I try to upload something? I know it's not my internet connection because I've tried on three different computers at different locations. Also, submitting a deviation feels like I'm filling out a form and it leeches the fun out of it. I understand everything needs to be categorized and there are copyright issues, but maybe I'm just really really really really lazy and I'm finding it tedious and yes okay I'm complaining a lot.
Also, I'm very sorry, I know I promised a contest. I still have a theme picked out. I'm trying to work on it, but I don't have time to organize one at the moment. If I try to organize a contest right now, I'm going to end up messing up everyone's entries and that's not fun for anyone.
RANDOM FEATURES, ENJOY
And if you like the art, be sure to check out other works from the same artist!
Watch, I'm probably going to forget to update my journal again for another three months or something yaaaay

I understand that I haven't been uploading much to DA and I haven't updated my Journal since... nearly Three Months ago eesh . This is due to several reasons:
DA has been laggy for me and has been giving me errors when I try to upload things. I don't know if it's the site that is having issues or if it's just me...?
I'm more active and update more on StupidFox's Facebook Page (about 1-2 times a week) at: www.facebook.com/StupidFoxFan
I'm working full-time (plus work-related commission) so I haven't had much time to work on any large projects or personal projects. I'll get some time to do quick sketches, but that's about it and then I usually work on comics during the weekend.
I only really use DeviantArt now as a place to store my work and sketch/spam-dumps I've thought about getting Tumblr or Blog or something but at the same time, I don't have much time to draw anyway ... But I do try to keep active on Facebook since it feels more interactive and it's more convenient for me to upload things (as opposed to dealing with DA glitches and lag and feeling like I have to fill out a form whenever I upload something).
IN OTHER NEWS,
I promised someone I would get a StupidFox Contest going again this year, so I'm hoping to have that happen soon. A theme has already been planned out but I don't have time to organize the event yet.
Wait, no, actually, I want food. All that holiday food. The Thanksgiving dinners, the Christmas dinners, the New Years Celebration dinners, etc. But I always end up just eating all the sweets and never much of the actual food (I'm so healthy, guys ). Pie, cake, apple cider, cookies... Yesssss.
What foods are you looking forward to eating during this Holiday season?
In other news, a friend of mine () drew this lovely, girly, image of StupidFox in a Magical Girl outfit based on Card Captor Sakura... and I'm pretty sure she was sleep deprived while drawing it
I know I haven't been around much and it's also because I am terrible at updating my journal on DeviantArt and I'm getting notes asking if I'm dead ... WELL, I am sorry to disappoint, but I am not dead yet and I'm still around, working, eating, living, all that standard people stuff.
SO HERE, HAVE A RANDOM COMIC FOR NOW, which happened while Dexter and I were on our trip in Paris LAST YEAR that I haven't actually drawn until now (I am so late for everything ) :
And something about Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Pumpkin Pie, Fall, Halloween, Turkeys, etc etc in case I forget again and don't update this journal until NEXT YEAR.
Stop by my table (D1) in the Artist Alley at:
ANIME EXPO, Los Angeles
Dates: July 4 - 7
I may be doing sketch commissions and will have pins, books, big plushies (limited stock), and plush keychains for sale!
And in other news, to the American peoples:
In short: Yes, I will still be attending London MCM Expo in May. And (I think) I have a table in LA Anime Expo's Artist Alley in June.
I say "I think" for Anime Expo because they took me off wait list and I paid for the table, but I'm not sure if that means it's a 100% thing ; ( I still have no idea what I'm doing, can you tell? ) I guess we'll see when the seating assignments come out in June.
I'm going to be on a short vacation from May 27 to June 5, so I'll be sure to upload a new comic or something before I leave Then again I sort of disappear from DeviantArt a lot, so it won't make much of a difference
In other news, I forgot what else I was going to say.
Enjoy your weekend and partyyyyy
If anyone still has finals/testing to deal with, goodluck and go defeat those tests! (And then party)

I did sign up for AKON in Texas (also to meet up with an old friend who lives there), but that cut into the MCM schedule. Since I signed up for MCM first, I couldn't work around AKON.
Earlier this year, I also signed up for Artist Alley in AX (Anime Expo, Los Angeles) which is 30 minutes away from where I live... But they put me on waitlist so I'm guessing that is not going to go through ; I mean, I'm still on the waitlist, but I know chances are slim.
Yeah, I'm not really good with things like this I'm the kind of person who is really indecisive until nearly the last minute. Then again, having a job and not knowing what your work schedule will be like (or if they will allow the vacation days) is sort of a hold-back as well.
So I'm sorry in advance for being terrible at organizing things like this and again, not showing up to any conventions within my own country

ASKtheARTIST: Bi-Annual Artist Mixer Panel
FULL INFO: fav.me/d5v9wmr
WHAT THE GLOB IS IT?
Unlike our prior interviews, this will not be a "direct interview" per-say. Instead, this will be a live panel, which means that the artists won't be taking any questions directly from fans in this one. Instead, we will be giving the artists about 10-15 topics that relate to the most common questions we typically get during AtA interviews, and they will be freely discussing these topics with one another as you, the viewers, get to watch the fun of the mixer live time.
WHEN THE BLAH IS IT?
The mixer is currently scheduled for February 23rd @ 12pm PST (Los Angeles Time).</b>
If you are not sure about the time zone differences, Google "current time Los Angeles" to get an estimate (note: those of you lovelies down under will likely have it on the following day, February 24th), OR simply check out the countdown on our page:
WHERE THE PLACE IS IT?
Unlike our prior interviews, ATA won't be hosting this through the deviantART chatrooms, but will instead host it in LIVE time through our Facebook page.
--> RIGHT HERE: www.facebook.com/pages/AskTheA…
The following artists have currently RSVPed to the event*:
( *See full list at thefluffyshrimp.deviantart.com… )
[ The above information was stolen from thefluffyshrimp and slightly edited for my amusement. I might attend but I am unsure of my schedule yet. If you are following any of the above artists', you should definitely go and check it out! ]
First of all,I would like to thank everyone for the Birthday Wishes back in December I tried answering all or most of your Birthday/Holiday wishes, and I am really sorry if I missed your comment! If you did not get a response from me or if you had a question, please feel free to send me a note anytime and I'll get back to you
Second, I know I went missing for about two months but I'm hoping that things will start slowing down again so I can work on comics and other art-related things. I have a bunch of tm Comics lined up since... 4 months ago... and I'm hoping to actually work on them soon (Along with StupidFox, of course). But mainly during these past two months, I've been doing a lot of sketching and going back on working with old mediums.
Warning: This is a Beginning of a Rant
Recently, I've realized that I do not have as much time to work on art as I did one year ago. And I look back to previous projects that I had done several years ago and I remember being able to stay in one place for 6 hours straight working on one project. Of course, that was when I was in school and I had a lot of free hours. However, now I work 8-10 hours a day doing office work that is not as much art-related. (To clarify, it is not that I dislike my office job, but I would prefer not having to work and just sit at home and draw whatever I want ) But of course, this also means I may not be updating as "regularly" on DeviantArt, since I won't have as much to show.
People have asked me why I don't pursue drawing as a career so that I can be doing something I enjoy, but I never saw myself in a "professional" position with being an artist. Even though I only have about 2-3 hours a day to draw, it is something I look forward to after a long day of work. Personally, I prefer that rather than looking at drawing as a part of a job or a chore. I enjoy drawing for drawing, I like seeing other people's work to learn from them bit by bit, and I enjoy telling stories and so I draw them out as comics (because I am terrible at writing, if you couldn't tell already, haha). What I don't like is only having that 2-3 hour time gap to draw, but what can I do ?
To people who are still reading this, I hope you all keep doing what you love whether it is just as a hobby or as your job. And, (while we're on the topic), to artists struggling to decide whether they should continue drawing or not because they "don't have a large audience on DeviantArt" or that they're not "good enough"... ask yourself if you are drawing because you enjoy it or because you just expect a lot of public attention. I know that in my position it's "easy for me to say", but I still remember when I thought 10 faves was a lot and meant a lot to me, and now the numbers are just meaningless statistics. In any case, remember that your greatest audience will always be your friends, family, and most importantly, yourself. Make time for your hobbies, don't turn your hobby into some kind of competition (unless it calls for it), and don't stop doing what you really enjoy

StupidFox is Hibernating! The comic will return next year! (As in January, 2013, not an entire year ) However, the StupidFox Store will remain open, and I will continue to upload other works.
[May update for a little contest later this month ]
I am ready to eats lots and devour a turkey. Actually, I'm not much of a fan of turkey. I go for all the deserts first I always look forward to the seasonal foods during the end of the year. But one thing I will always dislike is having to wake up to a cold room and foggy, sleepy weather.
Does everyone already have the holidays planned out? Or looking forward to eating something in particular? Or anticipating on Christmas presents already ?
StupidFox will be at London Comic Con, MCM Expo from October 26-28!
StupidFox MiniPlush keychains will first be available at the MCM Expo
MiniPlush keychains will be available in the online-store starting November 1st, 2012
For more information on MCM Expo, please visit www.londonexpo.com

In other news, I apparently messed up my hands a few days ago and I'm not able to draw. Or, at least draw "correctly" I hope my hand will heal up by the time I get to the convention so I can draw some sketch cards
Meanwhile, our family dog, Ginkgo, is staying with me for two weeks while my parents are on vacation. He's super sad that mommy is gone (and forgot to bring his toys), so I gave him an old/broken StupidFox Plush. he enjoys carrying it around and chewing on it (surprisingly very durable so far considering he has destroyed every other dog-toy we've given him), but he mostly likes to use it as a pillow.
PS. For those of you with a StupidFox Plush, I do not suggest letting your pets play with it because it's not a real dog-toy We watch him very closely when he plays with it and make sure he doesn't actually try to eat it.
