With how quiet it's been for me lately here on DeviantArt and everywhere else I hang around, I think it's time I owed some sort of explanation for what I've been doing all this time.

I've been looking for work.  And I'm not talking about little commissions or anything like that; I'm talking about being hired for a job at a company and having some sort of work to do that pays money, which can be used to cover bills.  Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any of that kind of work yet.  Most of my time is spent looking for places to apply to, sending out applications and hoping I get a reply while I live off of my savings.  Although I usually never hear anything back, I keep sending out applications regardless and hope for the best.

The other half of my time is spent working on Project Emerl, which is thankfully going better then my job search.  The art crew still consists of only me, but I've been chasing after a couple opportunities which could help develop the project some more and get things moving, while also working on some storyboards and getting things more fleshed out.

As for what's happened to all of the animations I used to make on here and YouTube, I stopped making them when it became apparent that I couldn't afford making them anymore.  I just don't have enough time or money to spare for all of the stuff I want to do, unlike when I was starting out in college a few years ago with much more free time, less of a need for money and much lower standards.  I hope to change that someday, but with how desperate I am to keep my schedule open for any paid work, I'll probably have to make some sacrifices elsewhere in order to do so.

I do apologize for all of this, especially to all of you who continue to follow my work and keep in touch with me even after all this time of silence.  I'll continue to look for ways to keep my schedule open for work, but also leave time during the week to work on silly stuff.  Even if that possibly means I can only work late at night and on weekends, and take a long time to chip away at a project.

Thanks for reading, and I hope this clears up a few things. :)

Hi there! My name is Nick, and I usually animate stuff. They usually consist of fan stuff, like for Sonic or even My Little Pony, but I also work on original stuff as well. I absolutely love making stuff for everyone to enjoy, no matter anyone's background.

Sometimes I draw stuff too. Usually designs for characters and things like that. I love working in different art styles, but I always seem to come right back to my own "style" of a cartoon-y loose feeling for everything. Not too much though; just enough to give the impression that it's a cartoon on the outside. :)

I sometimes make games as a hobby. Almost none of them ever get finished, but it's the thought and experience that counts! Right?

...am I Right?

You going to say something?

Hello?

Are you still reading this? Because I'm just gonna stop with typing stuff in this box if you're not going to read it.

FINE. BE THAT WAY.


GOSH.
