Hey all! Hope everybody's doing okay.
If you have ever wondered why I haven't been all that active with posting new works these past few years on deviantART, the answer is simple: Japanese took over my life.
A few years ago, I found a method for learning it that makes sense and is very effective, so I've been sticking with it all this time.
Every single day I'm doing at least something in Japanese, whether it be reading manga, playing video games, watching videos online, or listening to podcasts. Even as I'm writing this, I'm listening to an アルミ缶の上にあるラジオ podcast talking about Hajime no Ippo.
Thanks to this method, I'm now able to read Japanese novels and understand about 80 to 90% of them. I still got a long way to go with my Japanese journey, but I'm happy to say I'm no longer in the rut that I was stuck in for so many years.
That being said, I do have a couple of comic projects that I will be working on this summer. I'll try to post regular progress updates on those at my tumblr account for those interested in getting a "behind the scenes" look at how I go about drawing comics.
Also, I have opened up a Storenvy store recently. I just have comics/doujinshi and prints for sale at the moment, but I will also be adding paintings, buttons, bookmarks, etc. in the coming weeks. Feel free to take a look!
NOTE: Stupid DA for not letting me type Japanese beyond six characters in the listening to/watching/etc. fields above. So I just romanized it all. Actually, lemme just type it out here:
Doesn't that look much better?
