Literature
Halloween at the Black Phoenix
“A ghost in your…earrings?” I do my best to sound skeptical, but honestly it’s not the weirdest thing I’ve heard today. It comes with the job, really.
The old woman nods. “I think they’re made of human bones!” I give her my best fake smile and hold out my hand. “Alright, let’s see them.” She removes her earrings and places them on my desk. I don’t sense anything from them. I lift them up to the light. Yep...Made in China. I place them on a little scale. Way too light to be bone. Obviously. Just another crazy woman who thinks her plastic dollar store clip-on earrings are haunted. Funnily enough, I’ve actually had people with the exact same issue come in before. Work here long enough and you eventually meet every lunatic in the city.
I hand the earrings back to her. “Sorry to tell you this, ma’am, but these earrings are completely ghost-free. You’ll have to look elsewhere for whatever

Literature
Alone: Kia the Exorcist
Noon, and nothing interesting has happened yet. It’s like that a lot of days.
My name is Kia Awara, and I am the owner (and sole employee) of K Exorcists. As the name implies, I exorcise ghosts for a living. Most of the time I’ll get called out to a house only to find out that the owner just got spooked by some creaky furniture, but every so often it’s a genuine haunting. That’s when I get to do my thing.
Unlike most exorcists, I’m not descended from any special bloodline. None of my ancestors were spirit mediums or shrine maidens or anything like that (though my great-grandfather was a professional rodeo clown, which is completely unrelated to anything but still amusing to me), I just happened to be born with strong spiritual power and decided to turn it into a career. It’s an interesting job, to be sure…long periods of boredom punctuated by occasional bouts of pure terror.
Today, like most days, the boredom is winning. I’ve been in my &

Literature
The Black Phoenix
I can’t really explain how I ended up there, other than blaming it on the beer.
I’d been laid off from my job earlier that day. I hadn’t done anything to deserve it, but I couldn’t blame the boss. Ever since she showed up - Aki Nōne, self-proclaimed “princess of crime” – life in this city had been hard for everyone. Even legitimate businesses found themselves paying exorbitant sums, for fear of her “enforcers” making the entire staff disappear. So when my boss announced that the company had suffered record losses and had to lay off half the staff, I couldn’t blame them. I could only blame by own bad luck that my name had been pulled out of the hat.
But knowing all this didn’t make me feel any better about losing my job, and I’d spent the past few hours drowning my sorrows. When I finally stumbled out of the bar, it was nearly 3:00 AM.
I weaved my way drunkenly through back alleys and deserted streets, obliviou

Flower Garden 2/3: Shiki's Sorrow
I won’t cry.
I’ve made that promise to myself. Until this is all over, I will not allow my feelings to surface. No matter how long it takes. I will see this through to the end. I must. I am the only one who can.
I swirl my glass of whiskey and watch the ice cubes move. I feel my age more and more acutely every day now. In the deep amber of my whiskey, I see my reflection. For a moment, I see myself as others must still see me – an attractive woman in her late twenties, face framed by long golden hair, teal eyes gleaming with intelligence, a small golden piercing in dark red lips. Then the image fades, replaced with the me I’m used to seeing in the mirror – a yellowed, grinning skull, scraps of rotted flesh hanging in random tatters from the cracked bones, a sickly yellow light pouring from the empty eye sockets.
I shut my eyes tightly and gulp down the entire glass, slamming it back down on the table. Unprompted, the bartender walks over and refills it. I

Art trades: I am almost always up for an art trade.

Commission/Request Policy:
Feel free to make a request, though I can't promise I'll do it, especially if it's especially complex.

As for commissions, commission rates are based on the complexity of the drawing.

What I won't draw: Basically, I won't draw anything that makes me personally uncomfortable or would get me in legal trouble. I reserve the right to refuse any commission.
Interests
(also posted this in my status update)

Since I'm finally recovering from being quite sick, and the semester is winding down (about to graduate!), I'm back to art.

Character Ask for Dr. Cutter: Sketched. Tried the lineart tonight but it didn't work out too well...her eyes are extremely specific and take a while to get right. I'll try again tomorrow.
Art trade with :iconblueeyes-blackfur: : sketched.
Flower Garden 2/3, Page 57: I decided to scrap the sketch I had and start over with a more complex design. Should be soonish.
Alone 3: Planning to resume this over Christmas.
Doctor Cutter (the comic): Plan to start this after Christmas. (So I'd better get the hang of her eyes! :P)

Other character concepts: Still working on sketching out designs for Frost. Think I've got it down.

Other: A little fanart to celebrate graduation. 
  • Watching: Gun x Sword
  • Playing: Skyrim Special Edition with many many mods

Preparing for graduation has been a bit hectic. New art "soon".
Slight delay while I finish the four essays and the one massive math test I have. New art after that.
I just spent over an hour trying to make Doctor Cutter's eyes look right.
Why am I doing this.

Now that I'm feeling better, my plans are to do the art trade for :iconblueeyes-blackfur:, then the next Flower Garden 2/3.

Heh, thanks. It's a photo of my old dog, Turnip. :P

I'm a huge dog lover, so it made sense to me to use one of my dogs as my icon. :)
