I'm a fantasy/comic artist/illustrator currently working freelance out of central New York state. When I'm not drawing, I tend to watch a lot of sci-fi/fantasy-related shows and movies, listen to folk music, and read lots of comics, among other geeky things.

Giving Thanks and art things

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 24, 2015, 3:47 PM
So! I took an unintentional break from pretty much all of my social media, so here's me trying to catch up on messages here. I've gotten through MOST of the comments, but not the notes, and - goodness - not my deviantWatch. Hoping to do that soon, but damn. Why there so many good artists on here?

Here's a bit of what's been going on, art-wise:

Catching up on commissions bit by bit. I wrote out an actual schedule now, so that is helping a LOT. Next up is the cover for the lovely (and luckily, my friend) :iconwhimsysmile:'s second book - "Free Falling: The Zoey Jane Files." The first book leaves her characters off in VERY interesting, dramatic places, so I hope you guys will take a look when its out! Here's the cover for the first one again, with a link to SmashWords where its for sale in ereader format.

Commish - Zoey Jane, Into Darkness by rachelillustrates

Its a spy romance book series with two very interesting, spiritual main characters and many fun supporting characters too, not to mention the excitement and drama of spy work itself! Please take a look if you're interested!

Also working on gifts, as it is the season, including one for my wife's birthday tomorrow :heart: That one factors into "Tock the Gnome" rachelillustrates.deviantart.c… but its kinda personal, so I don't know if I'll get to share it here.... On that note, though, I have been brainstorming a lot for the project's Patreon… , trying to make things interesting and post more there even though I won't be devoting any more time (than usual) to page creation until I'm caught up on my paid work.

If you have any suggestions on that note, please let me know! Below are a couple promos for previous updates there, in case you're curious.

Patreon Update preview 1 by rachelillustrates
Patreon Update preview 2 by rachelillustrates

Back to commissions - up next after the next Zoey Jane piece will be an engagement portrait for some friends of mine, with some Harley and Joker flavor! And after that, I'm not sure. I'll try to make note of the upcoming ones as I go, and I will surely message the appropriate waiting (patiently, saintly) parties.

That's all for now. I hope anyone who's celebrating Thanksgiving this week will have a joyous feast and hearts full of gratitude! And on that note, 5 things I'm grateful for, right now:

:bulletwhite: That I enjoy the Holiday season, finally.
:bulletwhite: That I am able now to take responsibility for my art work.
:bulletwhite: That art exists at all!
:bulletwhite: That I have food and shelter and family to share times like this with.
:bulletwhite: For all of YOU, who've stuck with me so long!

Keep being wonderful, everyone. Thank you love power

Gratitude is the correct response to kindness or Grace and can never be misplaced... It could however be pie (given in thanks) too! x

I'm Eurydice Badger. Well met, Sage.

Do you work eclectically or do you follow a tradition?

READ ON OR DIE TONIGHT AT 10:35 P.M 9 years ago a person named Jerry got dared to sleep in a house that was believed haunted. The next day his friends waited for him outside the house...... They had to go inside and search for him. They went through every room exept the attic. He wasn't supposed to sleep there. He was supposed to sleep in the living room they went to the attic
. They saw Jerry's corpse and they just left because they were scared. But that night they all died because of their friend. He killed them for making him sleep in that house if you don't send this to 11 comments you will die tonight by Jerry. Example 1: A man named Stewart read this and didn't believe it. He shut off his computer and went through his day. That night while he was in bed he heard something outside of his door. He got up to look. And now he's dead. Example 2: a girl named Haley read this in the morning and she got scared but she didn't send it. She wanted to now if it was true. She went to school (She was only 13 years old) and that night she died. If you don't post this on 11 comments Jerry will 'visit' you his isn't fake. Apperently if you copy and past this to ten comments in the next ten minuets you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either get kissed or asked out, if you brake this chain you will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minuets someone will say I love you or I'm sorry
(im sorry) I know its fake but I am paranoid) You should ignore this because I think its fake.

P.S. You could probably ignore this but I'm putting this here because I'm a very very paranoid person.

I'm so sorry for doing this, I'm just too paranoid.
