Figured I'd give you all a little bit of an update.

Recently I've had computer problems which prevented me from doing...anything. Seriously. It ran so slow, it wasn't functional. Then my friend :iconschefus: helped me out. Turns out it was just dusty as hell! Now that's solved, I'm prioritizing!

For one, I have me diligently uploading videos to the Hotwired gaming channel! I have uploaded for the next 5 weeks, and plan to have at least 13 weeks uploaded. This way I don't have to worry so much about editing videos, and not stress about getting videos up in time. Each weekend I will attempt to edit and upload more videos for the 14th week, etc. However, since I already have things scheduled, I won't have to sweat myself about doing it EVERY weekend.

Moving on to the Animation Requests! I have not worked on them much in weeks. It wasn't just because of the computer issues. I had gotten a temp job that has been pretty much draining me. I'd get up early, drive about an hour (including traffic), work from 8:30-5 doing mundane filing and paper work, drive about an hour and a half back (traffic is worse), and by the time I get home I am pretty much drained. Not tired, but drained. Meaning that I don't have the motivation or the drive to do ANYTHING but sit. Hell, I didn't even want to play Super Mario World. I am still at this temp job until they don't have any more work for me. However, since I have basically lessened my work load by uploading videos for the next few weeks, I think I may feel a little less overwhelmed. I will be trying to finish these requests soon. I am also trying to figure out how to make these into high quality icons, so that if you all so desire you can use them. I also hope to get animation commissions from all of this some day!

Next, I owe people a lot of voice work. Again, that is attributed to the whole temp job thing, but the reason is a bit more of a time problem. See, my family goes to bed EARLY (like 6PM, 7PM) because most of them get up at 1 AM or 3 AM to go to work. So the only times I can really record vocal work is during the day, which I work. Weekends have become free, though (if I am not spending time with my lovely girlfriend). So now that the computer is fixed, I will be working on missed voice work.

I am also going through some deep thoughts. I wish to be an animator and make my own shows and run my own animation company. Yet, my style is mostly Anime. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE anime and I would like to stick to this style once I do have my own company, but I have learned that I cannot do much else BUT anime. Also, no one will take you seriously if you only know one style, especially anime (for some reason people see it as a lazy art style. Never figured that out...). So I have been trying to break free of anime and relearn art. Learning other styles, techniques, etc. Ultimately, I want to be a cartoonist and make silly and serious cartoons, and I would like my style to be anime since I personally find it beautiful. Yet, I need to break free of it for now in order for me to grow.

I have been on the fence about going to Art school...I heard CalArts is awesome, but people also tell me that what Art schools can teach me, I can learn for free online. Which is great and all, but I seem to benefit from a teacher ACTUALLY being there to show me what to do. If I screw something up, they can show me step by step in person what I did wrong, instead of just looking at pictures online. I mean physically take my pencil, erase what I did, and physically show me. That way I can do it myself correctly. Looking at pictures doesn't help me. So I am not sure...plus, I also know most of the basics for animation (2D at least). I also wonder, if I don't go to art school, would people with the degrees have a better shot at jobs than I do?

Anyway, that's all from me right now. Need to go to sleep and work tomorrow...UGH!

If I forgot something, I'll just update this.

Hey Son. I haven't seen too much of your work but I remember Aeons ago your TOSZSkits had my in stitches so while bored and randomly browsing today I actually decided to look at some of you other stuff (your artwork and other animations and such) I must say I am impressed and just giving one of those "Wow your stuff is good!" kind of boosts. It might not mean much but can't fault a guy for trying right?
