Hello everyone!


Well, it’s been a long time coming, but Chapter 5 of Various Happenings is finally out!


The response has been better than I could have hoped and I’m so happy that everyone is so pleased with the results and excited about it. People seem almost as excited as I am!


If you want to know more, go ahead and click the banner at the top of the page, or the link just above to go check it out for yourself!


Now, that that’s done, I can get on with all these Halloween commissions! I’m pleased to inform you all that I have successfully reached my goal of 100+ orders! Now all there is to do is… well… do them all! Yay… XD


But we’ll get there! Going to rock and roll over the next several weeks and get shit done!


Starting Wednesday, we’re going to be streaming almost exclusively Spooky Fun ‘21 streams, so if you don’t know about that, have a look! That’s going to be through November 5thbut if you want your work by Halloween, you should probably get it in before the 25th of October!


That’s what I’m up to, basically! Nothing to do but do it! I'll see you all next week! <3

 Hey everyone!

Wow! So I’m putting the finishing touches on Various Happenings “Chapter 5: Weaving In New Threads”. It’s been a long time and I’ve done a lot of things, tried a lot of things, failed at a lot of things, and had a lot of trial and error, but it’s finally coming together! I hope you all enjoy what I’ve got to show you!


We’ll be having a stream tomorrow at 12PM EDT and I’ll be hanging out, maybe doing doodles, showing off old VH art and answering questions, and then at 4PM EDT, I’ll be updating the site and it’ll be available to view, finally!


It’s been a long time. I’ve been working on this for almost 10 months, and it’s been only a day or two shy of year since the last Various Happenings update. A lot of things have happened in the meantime and a lot of changes to my plans and how things are going to go have happened. So, I hope you all like this direction and I hope to hear some feedback and comments from the lot of you on the finished chapter!


You can all join me on my Discord… that’s where we’ll be hanging out for the stream, and my stream is over at Jottor. Links are below (Jottor doesn’t have a chat built in, so we just use the Discord.)


Even if you don’t join us for the stream, I hope that you’ll check in tomorrow and see what I’ve worked on, it would mean a lot to me. Thank you everyone for your patience, and I’ll see you then!

Hey there, peeps!


Well the Spooky Season is officially upon us, and I’ve got a lot of work to do, lemme tell you!


First and foremost, this week we’re launching Chapter 5 of Various Happenings!


I’ve been working hard on this for almost 10 months now after my break at the end of last year and while it’s come with pitfalls and switchbacks and a lot of other problems and dead ends, I do feel like I’ve learned something from the whole experience. It’s too late to apply that to this chapter, but I’ll definitely have finger chops for things going forward.


This Friday I’ll be running a stream from 12AM to most likely 8PM EDT for the launch of Chapter 5 and a sort of showing off assorted VH artworks and doodling characters and answering questions. Kind of a Launch Party/AMA. It’ll be fun, I hope, and I hope it’ll be ready, to be honest!


There's no chat on Jottor.tv, but you can join us over at the Fox Saliant Studios Discord and hang out while we reminisce and talk about the past and future of Various Happenings, plus other things I might have up my sleeve! :3


There are a few more things to be done, but I’m going to try my best to get everything put together before the big day, even if I have to work long hours on it.


Starting next week, we’re going to be streaming almost exclusively Spooky Fun ‘21 streams, so if you don’t know about that, have a look! That’s going to be through November 5thbut if you want your work by Halloween, you should probably get it in before the 25th of October!


That’s it! Short and sweet because I still have a LOT of work to do, so I’ll see you on Friday, everyone!

Hey peeps!


Sorry for missing the stream on Friday. Got sick and I spent most of the day in bed, but I feel more or less recovered now! It’s taken a lot longer for my roomie to get over it, but she’s taking good care of herself (and she took a covid test and it came back negative, so it was probably just a sinus bug.)


I will be doing another Spooky Fun stream on Friday to make up for the one I missed last week, but this week is going to be dominated by working on Various Happenings! I’ve only got this week and next week until Friday to get everything done! This is the home stretch, but it’s going to be out on the 8th no matter what! Still, I feel like it’ll come out great and I hope you’re all looking forward to it as much as I am!


The response to the Spooky Fun stuff has been great, and I can’t wait to work on that some more. After October 8th, I’ll be taking a few days to relax, and then blitzing them hard all the way up to Halloween, so I hope you all join me for those streams!


We're at 75% of our goal and still climbing! <3


You can check out my yearly Halloween sale if you like and pitch me an idea via note or e-mail if you like!


Remember! The sale runs until November 5th, so be sure to check it out if you’re interested in some spooky (or spoopy) sketches!


We've got this! Thank you everyone for your support!


I’ll see you next week!


~Spooky

Hey everyone!


Sorry for the late update again! Still working on getting all the invoices out which is kinda stressful, but that's done for today at least! Have some uploads to do, still, but that's alright!


As you all know, I’ve got my yearly Halloween sale going on! We're half-way to our goal on orders, which is pretty awesome! Now I just have to fulfill all of them! XD


I’ll be working on those on Fridays throughout September and October, with the number of streams picking up in October as we approach the day of spoops!


The sale runs until November 5th, so be sure to check it out if you’re interested in some spooky (or spoopy) sketches!


I've got everyone who's sent me stuff so far! Hopefully I'll be able to catch up before the next wave of invoices needs to be prepared!


This week I’m going to be spending the majority of my time working on Various Happenings Ch. 5! There's a lot still to do, but I feel on track!


Back to it!


Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you next week!

Hey peeps!


Sorry for the late update today! Was busy getting all the invoices out and I’ve been kind of low energy today, so I’ve been napping a lot. But here we are!


If you haven’t seen, I’ve got my yearly Halloween sale going on! My goal is once again 100 orders this year and we’re a third of the way there on the first weekend! Pretty sweet! I’ll be working on those on Fridays throughout September and October, with the number of streams picking up in October as we approach the day of spoops!


The sale runs until November 5th, so be sure to check it out if you’re interested in some spooky (or spoopy) sketches!

I’ve sent out the first batch of invoices already for everyone who’s verified their e-mail for me. If you’re not on the list, then either I haven’t verified what e-mail I should invoice you at, or we haven’t come to an agreement about the content of the commission. Either way, no worries! You still have like seven weeks to get everything in!


Starting next week I’m going to be spending the majority of my time working on Various Happenings Ch. 5. I’m super excited so I hope you all will like it as much as I do! It’ll take a bit of work, but I’m right there, I can taste it!


A lot to do, not a lot to say! Sorry again for the lateness!


Hope you’re all enjoying on the summer winding down. We’re finally starting to get some cool days and I hope that continues!


Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you next week!

Hey peeps!


Well, it seems that my old commission log is done, which means it’s time to take new ones! I’m going to be going down my on-call list to ask people about jobs they wanted me to do, leaning towards the sketch stuff (for now) that I can complete pretty quickly without worrying too much about it.


Aside from that, I’ve got two things I’m focusing on over the next couple of months.


The first is getting Chapter 5 of Various Happenings out the door by the 8th of October. I’m sure you’ve seen me in the streams working on it, and that will continue as I try to wrap up the unfinished asset work and get everything in an acceptable state for release by that date! It’s been a long time, but I can feel it coming to a close and I hope what I’ve learned will help me produce much faster in the future.


As for the second thing… well, it’s that time of year again!


Yes! After three years, Spooky Sketches return with Spooky Fun ‘21!


I’ll be running my (hopefully) yearly Halloween sale and offering pin-up sketches for $21.00 USD per character.


You can check more info out over at any of my galleries! I’ll be working on them as the months go on, with streams ramping up in October so stay-tuned for that!


No news on the dental stuff yet, I’ve been having a hard time getting in touch with anyone. But that’s alright, I’m following a lead this Friday and going on a day trip to see if I can ask for a consultation in person. If not, I’ve got a few other alternative avenues I can take.


In addition, now that it’s up on the schedule and that, I can finally announce that I’m going to be a godparent! My roommates Dicydico and Tigre are going to be having a little tatertots (it’s been going for a couple of months so far) and while things are still very much in flux, we’ve started to figure out the medical bills and such, so this will be a good way to bolster our funds so that I can contribute to that!


Things are bound to be a bit crazy in the future, but honestly I feel more driven than I have in a long time! So there’s that at least!


Anyway! Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you all next week!

Hey, peeps!


Okay! So, last week of August slash first week of September. Time to get in gear! I’m a little behind what I thought I would be, but not by much! Just need one more stream to finish up Shaze’s work and I should have my commission list cleared out completely!


At that point, I have an on-call list that I’m going to be poking in on. I’ll be vetting things from that list and taking them on one at a time as I see fit over the next few months.


In the meantime it’s almost the Spookiest of months, and it’s been some time since I had a Halloween sale, so I might just have some details for y’all next week, providing I get a chance to get up some examples.


I still have Various Happenings Ch. 5 set for October 8th. Once I get done with these commissions, and get the rules set up for my Halloween sale, I’m going to be going all in on it over the next month. Hopefully I’ll be able to pace everything well enough and it’ll all come together nicely. I doubt there won’t be some stumbling along the way, but we’ll see what happens!


As far as commissions overall, I’m probably going to start leaning back towards sketch commissions since they’re more in the moment and faster. I like doing pin-ups and the really complicated pieces like comics or huge multi-character epics just take a lot of time to do when you have to do like two dozen of them. Alternatively, I can just not take as many commissions, which is something I’m probably going to do in the future since I got halfway through my last batch and kind of burnt out my enthusiasm really bad.


But, that’s my issue to get over and I’m just about there.


Man, I wish someone wrote a manual to all this crap so I could just do things properly and not have to stumble through everything all the time.


Medical stuff is also in the works (both mine and my roommates’) so there are going to be some financial pressures pretty soon, but that’s going to be in part what a lot of the Halloween stuff and future regular commission work will be going towards. We still don’t know, just yet, but hopefully sometime this week we’ll have a better idea of things!


That’s all to report for now! Stay tuned, everyone! I hope things are cooling down where you are (or if you’re down under, warming up a bit!) Take care~!

Hi everyone!


Not much to talk about, going to do a final push to finish up my commissions this week as we figure out the financial situation we’re in on the upcoming expenses.


I’ve decided hell or high water, Chapter 5 of Various Happenings is going to be out by October 8th, just a day shy of a full year of hiatus. From then on, I’ll be back to setting deadlines for it and HOPEFULLY, things will be a bit better. I’ve had some people offer to act as editors and brought on some proof readers and such to help me out so we’ll see where that goes. Now that I know what is needed, hopefully it’ll start coming out a lot faster.


Things will hopefully get back to a more regular production schedule from that point onward.


Not much else to say! Things are moving forward but there’s still a lot of details I don’t know just yet, so I’ll let y’all know when I know!
