Hey everyone~ Good to meet you/see you again! Once again I apologize for how little I use DA, and I know I have so many messages that I take forever to get around to.

*dusts off DA journal*

Hey Everyone! It's been a while, so I thought I should at least have the decency of giving you a bit of an update. Things with me are going well, and my lack of activity on my DA page is mainly due to trying to complete comic projects as well as trying to find  paying work where I can. 2012 has so far been a good, but also a challenging year for me. I've had a full time job between the months of January to May, and have been trying to snatch up some freelance work on the side.

I have picked up the pencil once again for some more In the Air pages and hope hope HOPE to get updating again soon!! Once I have any news I'll let you know :) I am never sure when I'll be able to update artwork onto my DA page because drawing comic pages always seem to take top priority over colour illustrations, but I want to challenge myself to update over the summer months. :)

Hey Everyone! How are you all since the last time I wrote an actual journal entry? I hope that things have been well!! I guess I can start going on about what I've been up to for the past... 5 months? Haha! Well, in a nutshell...

First off, I'm back to work! We have beautiful new Cintiq tablets at Trapeze this year that we're using to do our work. Because of this, our scenes are so much quicker to finish!! No more scanner eating the paper and photoshop quitting when it's on it's last scanned image and you haven't saved!! Unfortunately, the cintiqs are so much fun to draw on I feel more like doodling my own stuff than working on backgrounds most days. I'm getting better though, I swear!!

On the side, I'm taking some life drawing classes. :) They're pretty small, and it's pretty casual *come when you want, pay after each class type thing*, but it's been a lot of fun so far, and I'm learning a lot. Or, at least, I hope I am! Haha! We'll see how my drawings improve, I guess.

Okay, I know I talk about work too much, so let's see what's going on in my personal life. Let's see, my sister came home after a year of being in New Zealand, and currently she's staying with my other sister Carolyn and me. :) It's a little cramped and we do fight from time to time, but all in all, everything's working out in that regard. My mom's Aunt and Uncle were over last week too, which was fun. We had Thanksgiving early so that we could celebrate it with them. I believe it's either today or tomorrow that they'll be heading back over to Montreal, and from there they'll go back to the Netherlands. :)

Also, last weekend, my sister Carolyn and I went to see the Riverdance performance they have going on at the theatre here. Man, was it ever awesome!! It had a good blend of dance, music, narration, and singing. And could those people ever dance!! Especially the main male lead (whom I lovingly nicknamed "Spike" because of his hair). His feet moved so fast, you could hear all the taps but only catch half of what he was doing. The Russian dancers were awesome, too - they had some amazing flips, jumps, and lifts going on. :) I was clapping along to the beat by the end of it, tapping my feet, and bobbing my head. I must've looked like such a child! Haha!!

Let's see, what else am I up to? Ah yes. Halloween is fast approaching and my friend Nelly came up with the idea of putting on an Alice in Wonderland theme. I was voted Alice (my friends reasoned it had to be me 'cause they needed a skinny Alice O__o), so I went out and bought some nice blue material and a dress pattern so that I can get started soon. I'm not the greatest at sewing, but Carolyn will be around in case I need pointers!! Wish me luck!!

Yesh, and sorry that I don't update DA much anymore. :( Lately I'm not doing any really cool finished pieces that I can post up here. More so just scribbles, studies, and my comic. I have a blogspot site that I update far more often, since I feel comfortable putting up sketches and studies there :)

ary-doodle.blogspot.com

I haven't done much advertising for this blogspot, so I don't think many people know about it besides other friends that have blogspots! If you're interested in seeing what I'm up to, please take a look around there!!

That's all for now!! Talk to you again in another 5 months!! :giggle: Just kidding!!
  • Listening to: Ghislaine and Renee talking and laughing
  • Reading: Dominion Tank Police
  • Drinking: Coffee
...is probably what you're thinking!! Last journal was dated Jan 27..! I really should keep on top of things!

Anyways, how is everyone doing? I hope that life is treating you all well. :) Things here are pretty good, nothing to complain about. Since January... Let's see. I finished working on Angora Napkin long ago now. The episodes are complete, but there's still no premier date. The station it's going to air on is Teletoon Detour, so if you have that, keep an eye out for it!! Here's the pilot preview:

www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPCPGB…

and here's the blogspot to keep up with updates:

angoranapkin.blogspot.com/

Okay, moving on. What else have I been up to? Mostly work I guess. I am seriously turning into a workaholic!! O__o;; I had some other freelance projects keeping me busy. On top of that I've been trying to get work done on my personal comic project In the Air (being updated on Wirepop.com) Things have slowed on that though and I'm forced to go on hiatus for a little while! At the end of this month, I'll be going back to steady work on Razzberry Jazzberry Jam season 2, so I'll start getting steady income again, which will make bill time sooo much more bearable!! :D

Well, that's it for now, aside from the fact that I've finally gotten my wisdoms taken out yesterday!! I was totally nervous, but aparantly the nurse said I hid it well. xD Now that things are done, I realize that it's really not that bad at all. Thanks to all my friends for the support in preparing for the operation!! I'm a little achy now, but it's bearable. :) The best thing is that it's overwith and with proper care, it can only get better from here! That and now I'm off the liquid diet part of it!! :boogie:

Anyways, blah blah blah! I'll end this entry here!! ;)
Love you all!!

It has been a while since I rambled on this thing. There's a little news that I have to share though. To start, my contract with Trapeze and Razzberry Jazzberry Jam has come to an end. The show is now airing on TV during the early early morning hours. It's playing on a local channel too, so for those of you who don't get CBC, you can see the show's preview by following this link:
ca.youtube.com/watch?v=VwKEfew…
Now, on to what's going on now that I'm finished. Well, I'm sitting at home a lot. xD Despite that, I'm still moving at a snail's pace in regards to my comic (In the Air, available to read at wirepop.com) A couple weeks ago I got an invite from Troy Little to help paint backgrounds for his animated pilot series Angora Napkin. There is also a graphic novel of Angora Napkin that has just been released last week, so please look out for it!!
Animaritime is also coming up (official site: www.animaritime.org/)My sister :icondeviousdybbuk: and I are going to share a table in Artist's Alley. If you're in the area and attending the convention, check it out! This is my 3rd year going, and it's a lot of fun. Last year I was able to meet OEL Mangaka Svetlana Chmakova there (creator of Dramacon and Nightschool, among others) and it was really awesome!! There hasn't been an announcement to whether she'll attend this year or not, but she's very busy lately with so many projects on the go, so we have to just keep our fingers crossed!
Well, that's all the news with me! Stay tuned for the next installment! (yeah, something like that xD~!)

Sorry for the world's lamest spam journal! @___________@;;
  • Listening to: People at my work talking
Hey everyone! How are you doing? Things with me are fine. Autumn is in full swing, the leaves on all the trees are coloured with bright oranges, reds, and yellows. I love this time of year!! Too bad it doesn't last long enough. Oh well. :3

Thanksgiving has come and gone, as we here in Canada had our celebration yesterday. I don't think I told you guys here yet, but I've been vegetarian the past 2 and a half months (pretty well since I moved out of my parent's home). So, needless to say, Thanksgiving was a bit dull. My sister Carolyn and I made some miso gravy though, which was pretty good. The rest of the weekend was spent playing Mario Party 8! I borrowed it from Phil (from my work) and now I'm excited to get my own copy!! It's so cute and fun - my favourite board is the one where you invest in the hotels and stuff. I'm hopelessly addicted to it now >3<~!

In other news, my contract with Trapeze Animation has been renewed until December 5th~! I would have been finished Oct 25th if not for the extension, so I'm very grateful!! Once that's up, I'm planning on chilling for a bit and working on my comic, and then watch out Sabel!! I'm visiting you in Texas!! >w<!! For anyone who's interested in what I'm doing at this studio, I'm working on background illustrations for a preschool cartoon called Razzberry Jazzberry Jam. You can watch the preview here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwKEfe…

Today is also the day of the Canadian elections!! I'm so scared, it seems that I don't like any of the candidates. U__U;; Another sad thing is that since the American election is going on as well, we Canadians are more interested in that election than our own!! Ours is all boring, the Americans have some interesting characters in the running this time. Both elections make me nervous of the future of North America, though, haha!

Well, that's all for now, my files finished downloading so I should get back to work!! Take care all of you~!

Also, I'm moved out now!! :D

:End of Edit:

Hey everyone! How are you doing? Did you miss me? *crickets chirp*

...

Erm, well, moving on...

How is everyone? Things are going fine here, though they're busy. Things are in full swing at work and we're already nearing crunch time for our second episode. I'm still loving being a background artist and there's no end to the things I'm learning about drawing. There's still so much that I don't know and it makes me very happy to always have constant feedback and input. As for deviations... bear with me. My scanner's actually on the fritz so even if I had something to post here it'd have to wait.

In other news, as some of you have already heard, I'm moving into town with my sister this Saturday!! It's exciting and nerve wracking, as this is going to be my first time not living with me parents. More exciting than nerve wracking though, haha!

Another big thing that is taking place is that in about a week and a half, my sister ( SidderGackt ) will be going to Australia!! She's staying there about a month, and then heads over to New Zealand to stay for a year on a working Visa. I'm going to miss her a lot, but she's going to have so much fun and see and do so much cool stuff!!

That's about all that's new with me. I have a few other places I'm lurking on the web:

ary-doodle.blogspot.com/

Check 'em out if you have some time (and if you want to as well, haha)

Heyz everyone! How are you all doing? I'm sorry - once again it took me forever to update my journal!! D: !! Anyways, here I am. ^^ Glad to see you!

Well, in case everyone is wondering what's going on with me, I'll begin my rambling here x3. Urm, a month ago I went to a local Anime Con, Animaritimes. I was lucky and got a table in Artist's Alley (all thanks to the help of my sister Carolyn - love chu, Carolyn). My table did better than I thought it would (considering I had the gut feeling that I wouldn't sell anything, but I have negative thoughts like that a lot about my work) and I met lots of cool people!! :D Speaking of which, I met Svetlana Chmakova, author/artist of OEL manga DramaCon!! She was SOOOO nice, even to me who was so nervous I most likely ended up looking foolish <---big fan of DramaCon, thanks to Sabellies who sent me that TokyoPop preview book x3.

Hm... well, in more recent news, I started my new contract with Trapeze animation. I'm on my second week, and so far the job is flippin' AWEZOME!! :boogie: As of now, I'm a background artist, but once we get computers in and see how people's colouring skills, some of the group will become the "colourists". We'll just have to wait and see where things go when that time comes. Right now we're mainly sketching, trying to match the style, and setting up scenes according to the storyboards we've got. Things are slow, but will probably be picking up soon. x3

As for drawing and art stuff, In The Air is onto chapter two on Wirepop.com. ^__^ There are also two character profiles up there too. Other than my comic, I've been doodling here and there, mostly focusing on working on environment/background drawings. O0O~! I maaaaay post some doodles up here sometime soon, but I dunno if any are good enough to show off xD If I do, they'll probably be scrapped quick.

Well, that's all for now. I've gotta go wash the dishes and clean the cat's litter box (everyone: "eww, don't tell us THAT!!") haha! Take care everyone, I love ya lots *blowz kissez*

Heyz everyone!

Just updating up here to let everyone know that...
my manga has been accepted on wirepop.com!! :D
Please take a look if you are interested!

The title is "In The Air", and it updates every Sunday.
If you can't find it, browse creators, and if you type in my name (Brenda Hickey) you should find it.

To all those who read, thank you so much.
Your support is very precious and important to me.

The second half of this journal is for the features.
I'm keeping them up here since I only have 4 people featured so far, and the max is 10.

-------------------------------------------------------

Stolen from crypticFallon journal :3
Thank you for featuring me on your page ;o;~!
you're too kind to me!

The first ten people who reply to this journal will have their art featured here. I'll pick two or three (or more if I can't decide) pieces, and put them in this journal. The catch? You have to post this in your own journal, and feature the first ten people who respond to you.

Hey All!

How's the first day of February going for everyone?
Mine is going well, since the sun is out and everything outside looks warmer than before!
We've just gotten out of an ice storm where I live. It wasn't severe, but in some areas of the island power has been out for, I think, 5 days. I was only out one, so I really got off easy. (though I still go nuts not being able to at least check my email, and I eat like a pig when there's no power!)

Well, despite the inconvenience, ice storms are beautiful! Pretty, but eerie. When you actually do go out, it's totally silent outside - not even one bird singing. Just the sound of ice shards falling to the ground.

Anyways, I'm doing a "tag-thing" from Sabellies today!
(after YEARS of her having hers posted up, I'm finally doing it... I'm really lazy) Well, it's about 5 things, and I finally think I know what I'm going to write, so I'm doing it now. Let's get on with it!


The rules:
1. post these rules
2. each person tagged must post 8 random facts about themselves
3. tags should write a journal of these facts
4. at the end post 8 more bloggers are tagged and named
5. go to their page and leave a comment telling them they're tagged

1. First - I STILL sleep with stuffed animals. I have a Kyon-cat (Fruits Basket), a penguin, and Mario in there with me, and I always hug Kyon. The others must feel rejected....

2. Let's see... This may be gross to some people, but I eat soy sauce on mashed potatos. You may be gagging over this, but try having them most every night for supper. You get bored quick and go through all kinds of stages with them (for instance, the ketchup, plum sauce, butter, steak sauce... it goes on and on)

3. I love strawberry anything - lipgloss, flavoured snacks, etc etc. But I can't handle eating an actual strawberry. O_o;

4. I love to sing while I draw. xD

5. I'm soooo fickle. I'll start 1031264562 things, and won't be able to finish half of them.

6. Hm... what else... I have 4 sisters and 3 brothers, and surprisingly enough, I get along with them all.

7. This is random. When I was a kid I believed that if I wished hard enough I'd get a magical necklace that could transform me into form(every christmas I asked my parents if they could get it from Santa, since he was supposedly magical) I think my sisters talked me into believing that one. Boy was I a gullible kid. I also believed my sister when she told me that angels helped God write the little books you use to follow along in church. ~_~;;

8. And last but not least... Well, maybe in this case least. My whole body is covered in warts!!! No, just kidding. Well, I wish that someday I can learn a classic dance like the tango or the waltz. So far all i do is swing my arms around and shift my weight from foot to foot. MUCH need for improvement! :giggle:

Anyways, those're my 8 facts. Thank you, Sabellies for letting me steal 'em *tackles and huggeths you* Love you very much Sabellies, and don't you forget it!!

Take care everyone! :D :D :D
And thanks for stoppin' by!!

Yesh, for lack of titles, here I present my random type-faces!!

...

moving on....

How is everyone doing? Here everything is fine.
December really started with a bang, as I woke up yesterday to find a snowstorm outside. O0O~!
It was a really bad one that apparantly blew down a bunch of telephone poles.
Needless to say, we had no power all day until 8:00 in the evening!
So I was trapped in the house with my siblings all day playing Nintendo DS Pokemon Pearl... >3<~
And trying to keep warm. I walked around under a blanket all day. I hate the cold. I am a really louzy Canadian citizen.

Well, in other news, I'll be taking a break from work for a while it seems. My contract is finally up! Which is really nice 'cause since school has ended in May, I've done nothing but work ('cept for that little break in between the animation studio and the first aid illustrations.) Turns out I'm really a lazy person after all. U__U;

Well, other than that, nothing to report! I hope everyone is doing well!!
I loves you all!
Kisses and hugs!!

oh, and happy holidays as well~! :hug:
