I live!!!


Hi guys!
So, I'm alive. Mostly.

I apologize that this isn't an arty update. I'd give you my life in a nutshell but that nutshell would explode violently...
...what does that even mean?

Anyway, Grandpa is still in the hospital. It got worse before it got better but he seems lucid now and we're... cautiously optimistic. Regardless of his improvements, though, it's going to be a LONG, long road to recovery...
So the holidays are going to be a bit different for us all this year. :/

Add into that a sprinkle of hard drugs and prison into the family mix and you may have a pretty good idea of why I've been absent. (PS it's not me doing the drugs or the prison. O_o I should hope that part would be obvious.)

If it were all my own personal issues I'd be alot more candid with you all but I feel, in the interest of the privacy of my family and friends, that I should censor myself somewhat. I know, I know, this is a weird and foreign concept for us all.

But, onto the good news! PrettyBoy and I found a place to room for now and we really, really love it! Our little space is pretty awesome. It's full of books, color, robots and free street furniture! It's almost a shame that we have to move out at the end of the year for our 3month house-sitting gig but that's just another adventure! Then you all get to listen to me agonize over finding a permanent home (but that's 6 months down the line.)

Anyway. Tonight I make my first visit ever to a prison facility. I'm not thrilled, to say the least, but add it to the list of weirdo things in my life.
Since I've got some time to kill today I'm going to work on some comics. (I AM, I AM!!!!)

And I have some fun ideas in store for you all, too, to reward you for your patience and to spice up the holidays. Let's just say they may include the words "sale" and "gift exchange."
You like?

Okay, I promise I'll be back on the radar soon.
In the meantime, stare at my swollen, horrible, sickly face in the Lunatic Odyssey videos. :p

Oh, PSS, my hair is copper now. :)

AND SO LONG AUUUGH *eyes shaver...*

EDIT: OH OH OH!!! One more PSSSSS thing! PrettyBoy and I just celebrated our 1yr anniversary a week or two ago. :) Joy!

Weird. You drove through the tiny little town I grew up in on your way to Dodge City.

Another saying copper looks great on you! Make sure to download the pamplet for "what to wear" as I almost wore a color that wasn't allowed for my first prison visit. Don't want that to happen to you!

Love your hair in the copper tones. Makes your face brighter and almost looking more yay? lol sorry I am a dork.

Cass said...

Glad to hear you're still alive and kicking - congrats on the anniversary :)

syd said...

loving the copper hair. your face is amazing, i would give anything to do your makeup.

megan said...

i love the hair! i like how long it's getting, too. but it's probably weird for you after having short hair and junk. i can almost picture you with a chin length a-line cut. almost. hm.

Mark said...

Dare I say it...the copper looks....adorable! In a sexy-sweet kinda way of course.

Nic said...

Wow, a big yay for the copper, eh? Glad you all approve. :)
Awwww I missed you guys sooooo much! <3

I had a really, really, really hard day today. Trying to keep my chin up.

Also, Syd, I don't usually even wear make-up! The once or twice someone has gotten their hands on my face I always feel caked up like a clown. :/ I guess it's just foreign to me. I've always been intrigued if I could pull of a nice make-up look but thus far I've been freaked out by my experiences with it...

Megan, I have had this cut! It looks alright on me. I don't think long hair flatters my face/features but of all the longer cuts that's one of the nicest.

Mark, Aren't I ALWAYS sexy-sweet? ;P

Yes! A very big yey for copper! It's good to know you haven't forgotten about us! ;) I'm sorry to hear that things are tough for you, but for every misfortune there is an equal fortune waiting to happen, life is kinda fair like that. It's from an old japanese proverb I think, but I like to think of it like that :) Just like rain storm never lasts for ever, happiness is just a wind blow away! You'll do great, I know it! :)

+1 to how cute the copper looks on you - brightens your whole face right up. And whenever things get bad, remember: this, too, shall pass.

Copper hair on you=most adorable thing ever!
Do not cut it, I beg of you! It's SO CUTE.
Anyway, I hope your family stuff clear up soon. And not just because I want more comics, I swear. :)
Good luck with life!

Mike Phillips said...

hey nic, been awhile since we talked because i deleted my deviantart account.

anyway!

i love the new hair! copper is epic on you. as for your family, i definitely understand how that goes. i've got family doin drugs, in prison, prostituting... you name it. as for your grandfather's health i'll keep him in my thoughts :)sending you E-hugs! good luck with everything

GamerGirl said...

And yet another big yes! to the copper hair color. It really brightens your face and the slightly longer length and messy hairstyle is adorable on you! Like a mischievous little pixie!

I read your comment about make-up making you feel all caked up. I had that too, but I switched to a certain brand of powder type foundation (yeah, the one advertised on those tv informercials) and I don't have that problem anymore. Might be worth a shot.

So glad to see you back; can't wait for the new comics. But hey real life happens and you gotta take care of it. I'll just add you and your family to my "special thoughts" list. And congrats on the one year anniversary!

Lord Crios said...

It's lovely -nodnod-

Also I'm sorry about family issues.. Dx
They suck.
But I'm glad your okay.

AND YAY FOR ANNIVERSARIES~

I just want to say thank you for being the wonderful confident self assured woman you are. I'm a similar build to you but quite a bit taller and I find it really hard to think of myself as beautiful. But how you see yourself as perfect and gorgeous makes me feel like I can try to see myself that way! I can easily think of other woman who are similar to me and even much larger as being beautiful just not myself... Your confidence and ability to see yourself as perfect just the way you are is so amazing to me! Thank you for being just the way you are :)

Kenshi said...

So glad to see you're doing alright for the most part Nic! I have to agree with everyone else here and say that you look stunning with the copper hair.
