Thanks for the feedback everyone! I've been thinking long and hard about everything and I think I have a handle on what I'm gonna do.

I opened up some commissions on my main dA page for solo character illustrations. They'll be done at a print-ready size of 8.5x11in and can basically be whatever you want, as long as it's not NSFW. I'm still super new to doing some of this stuff through dA, so if you have any questions shoot me a message and maybe we can figure it out together!

Space Girl!
I've hit a decent spot in my development where I think I actually know where I'm taking the project. So rather than hide everything until it's done, I'll take you along for the ride! I'm gonna try uploading more sketches, works in progress, and talking about the concepts at play and the inspirations behind them. I really love building projects and piecing things together, so it'll be fun to try and show that aspect of things.

Suburban Soup!
Might end up being developed as a comic series! I'm working out some of the finer details, but I'm figuring out the best way to translate the episodes I've written out into a comic form. I've never done a story-based comic before so this is also some new territory for me. You might not see anything for a little bit, but any sketches and test strips leading up to anything I'll be sure to post!

Vagabond Balloon!
This'll probably be left on hiatus for now, but I'm looking into collecting some of the older strips into a .pdf book sometime.

Bravest Warriors!
No official word on season 3 yet, but it sounds like we might be seeing something soon. As soon as there's a date I'll let you know and post some of my favorite backgrounds from the episodes.

Other Stuff?
I don't know! There's a bunch of stuff going on over on my end but I don't know what I'm doing. I'm a mess of a human being.
But you can always follow my mess on Twitter

Thanks guys!
