Big Change + Looking for Prints

Wed Jul 23, 2014, 8:21 PM

Big Changes

Well. It's been a while. Normally I have no good reason for my long journal silences other than I have nothing of note to say, but this time I have a few good reasons.

Butt Jokes

First, back in March, I was hospitalized. My butt tried to kill me. Not even kidding.
Go figure my first hospitalization would come from a perirectal abscess which, if you don't know, is an abscess that is deep up in your butt, surrounding your rectum, and causes so much pain in your ass (literally) that everything sucks and you want to die. Also, because it's your ass that hurts, you're too embarrassed to go to the doctor so you put it off until the infection starts to enter your bloodstream and you get massively sick before biting the bullet and going to the doctor and having tons of people you don't know get up close and personal with your butt. Four days of hospital food and a surgery later, I was released into a world that was regrettably too polite to make all the wide open butt jokes.

So I spent about a month recovering from that fiasco, then I got a new job and I moved towns.

New Job, New Town

Cha. BIG change in my life. I left behind my job as a senior designer at Walla Walla Community College after almost seven years and moved back to a very familiar town, Pullman, to work at my alma mater, Washington State University. I'll admit, I already miss the culture of WWCC and the small college feel, but I think it's just fear of change. WSU is very large, VERY large, compared to what I'm used to, and I'm not used to only being involved in a small part of it's world. At WWCC I had my hands solidly into every single part of the school and I knew what was happening. Here, there's just way too much to keep track of. Granted, I'm only in my second week, and to be honest I'm also really excited about the work I'll be doing and the people I'll be working with. I'm also really excited that I'll be overseeing student designers and being that first person to guide their professional careers. Plus, WINDOWS. I'm out of the dark, dreary basement and I have an entire wall of windows in our office. Sure, my cubicle can't see the outside directly, but omg natural light. Plus, hockey. JESSIE CAN PLAY HOCKEY DURING THE WEEK AGAIN!

So, now that I'm slowly getting unpacked and settled and my job is starting to make sense and life feels like it's under control again, I'll be getting more active around dA. You may see me in the chats and forums but I'll probably forget about my journal again for months. It happens.

Looking for Inspirational Prints

In the process of moving I found an entire box full of nice, matching black frames. I have an art room in my new place and I was thinking maybe I should use these frames to put up prints of pieces I find inspirational.

Can you think of any design, comic, manga, or other artwork that has prints available that I might be interested in? I'd prefer stuff that would inspire me to actually work on my graphic novel (hahahahahahaha), but I can't expect y'all to know what that is. So, throw stuff my direction!


Here's some of my more recent Favs. I haven't had the time to go looking for new artists or undiscovered good stuff, so it'll probably all be from established, popular artists because that's what's shown up in my watch feed and daily deviations. Deal with it.

What are you all up to?

I realize I haven't caught up with hardly any of my dA people lately. What are you all up to? How's life? Are you still there? Shoot me a comment or note and let me know what's up with your lives! :dummy:

Yo. I'm Jessie, better known to my peers as Nutty. I'm a Graphic Designer for a local college where I produce everything from flyers, posters, brochures and marketing materials to original artwork for plays and productions.

However I work as a designer so that I can do what I was born to do: Play hockey. Nine months out of the year I'm traveling virtually every weekend to play for any and all teams that need a goalie. Some call me a whore, but I prefer the term "freelance goalie".

When it comes to my personal art I tend to dabble in everything I can get my hands on. Sculpture is my favorite though I don't currently have a studio to work in. I also enjoy digital painting and illustration, vector, and drawing. I do have a tendency to start monster projects but then get distracted by new monster projects.

Commission/Request Policy

I do accept commissions/requests... sometimes. Depending on my work and hockey travel schedule, I may accept small commissions and requests.

I do not have a set price for them, but I do ask that you donate either points or real money via PayPal according to how much you think I deserve. Think I did a great job? Donate what you can. Think I did so-so? Donate accordingly. Want to be a complete douche and insult my work? Leave a llama. I just won't be held responsible for broken or missing limbs. :paranoid:

Really, all I'm asking for is your respect. I have dozens of other projects and things like sleep I'm setting aside for your request. If you can respect that, then I can respect your personal financial status and/or opinions of my work.
