Mostly drawing Manga and anime characters. I have a collection of art markers, colored pencils, and now I even have a bonafide Wacom Graphics tablet that I can barely use (Pen control on it feels awkward to me).

I've been drawing actively since September 2014, and am actively trying to improve my craft. I hope someday to be able to tell stories with my art, and maybe create a webcomic.

I'm also a musician, playing guitar and bass.

Well, this election's finally over. So we've got that going for us, which is nice.

I can't say I'm thrilled that Trump won or Hillary lost, they're both two sides of the same coin. I'm just heartbroken that these were the two choices that we were left with. I felt sick to my stomach filling out my ballot yesterday. I will not mention for whom as I cannot consider myself a supporter of either. Regardless, I'm remaining cautiously optimistic for the next four years.

What we'll need to do, and I mean everyone in this country will need to do is to become more politically active with the smaller scale side of politics. If one side is pushing a bill you don't want, write letters to your members of congress or your senators. Meet up and take part in demonstrations and rallies. This is on the state political level as well. Too much sitting on our ass and not being involved got us where we are. Complacency is the real killer. We're as much responsible for fixing our country as the people we chose to elect; We need to hold their feet to the fire as they do it.

And we need ensure that nobody is marginalized or trampled underfoot while they do so. 'Don't Tread on Me' does not mean 'Don't step on me, step on that other guy'. It's a warning against abuse of power. We're watching and we'll stop you if need be.

To my friends who feel marginalized this morning, and there are a number of them; Don't give up on this country. I'm not going to. We've got work to do. To borrow from our President-Elect's parlance, we need to make America great again. We don't need it great in his vision, we need true greatness. That won't come unless we get involved and take part in protecting the rights of everyone in this country.

Rest up and be ready. This is going to be a long four years.

The Demon's Sorrow
A drawing of Mikazuki Augus in pencil and alcohol marker. I always took this character as someone who would keep his emotions private. He wouldn't show them if anyone else was there. This is how I figure he looks in private when he can let his guard down, especially after the past few episodes. I think this may be the most emotional drawing I've ever put together, and probably in my top five for favorites.

Sailor Mika Sketch
Someone on the Gundam subreddit posted a drawing of Mika dressed up like a maid and I got inspired. Very rough at the moment but I'll work it out some more in the next few days.
