Hey guys, I know I haven't been super active on here, in terms of uploading, and I wanted to let you all know what's up. Shortly after I graduated this May I found out that I couldn't afford to move on to college.
Scholarships covered some of the cost, but, unfortunately, not enough. The only option left was to either have my parents take out a 7K loan or take the loan myself. Granted, that's not a terribly large loan, but over the course of four years that will turn into around 40K with interest. Plus my parents are still refinancing the house, and at that time I was jobless. Then after a few weeks of thought, I decided to have my enrollment deferred for another year, and that I would work this year to earn money and pay my way through college without taking on debt. I mean especially as an art/animation major, student debt is not something I can afford to have. So for the past two and a half months I've been working as an associate at Wal-Mart, usually working around 30 hours or more a week, (sometimes less). I've had no real social life since then and now my friends are all off to college, and its been very difficult to stay behind by myself. It was just so crushing not being able to go this year after working my butt off in high school. I worked so hard, I was an honors student and in the top 10% of my class not to mention all of the extracurricular activities I was in.  So right now it's been a bit of an uphill battle for me, and I know it will get better I'm just very impatient.

Good news? I placed 2nd nationally in Editorial Cartooning in the NFPW's High School Media Contest, so that's pretty cool!

I see you've added me to your DeviantWatch.

I appreciate it, though it's been a while since I've worked on any Sonic-related material. I consider it from time to time - but time is always the issue. :nod:

I hope you find plenty of material to keep you inspired and busy here, Imaginatik. (By the by, I find your current Webcam amusing, and  a great show of speedy footwork in the sport.)
