Been a bit AWOL lately so its probably a good thing I'm not in the military.

I blame global warming, the economy, the colour purple..... as well as a few health issues.

Think I've worked out both the climate and the economy (it was complicated and required math), made peace with the colour purple and am now on the mend, so hopefully I'll be catching up on comments and posting some new stuff real soon.


Oh, and I'll be in artist alley for the Oz Comic Con Melbourne on the 5th-6th July.
If you are in the area, pop on by, say 'hi'.
Or 'hello'.
Or 'g'day' …which ever takes your fancy.

My BF will be selling her 8 page 'mini comic' I illustrated for her as well… she still has a few copies left, so if you are interested and can't make the con, send her a note.... you can find the details here.. lil-el-art.deviantart.com/art/…

:hug: Thanks for the kind words... doing much better these days.
As for fixing those other things, turns out my ideas weren't quite the solution... back to the drawing board I guess.. but then my favourite place to be IS the drawing board so thats not really a problem :D

Thanks Domi! :hug: Hope you have fully recovered yourself... and my new friend Purple thanks you for the kind words.
Maybe one day I'll make it up to Sydney for a con (a bit closer for you at any rate).

Thanks Dave, it would be awesome to come see you, if you were closer :) I love trips to Sydney!
My road to recovery will take a while. I'm trying hard to be patient, but patience has never been one of my better virtues..lol
I suppose I have to be thankful that they finally worked out what was wrong and we're working to fix it now...the alternative would be much worse ;)

Man I cried reading this. So much emotions. So much drama. And the plot twist topped with a cliffhanger. You're as much as a gifted writer as you are an artist. 

Welcome back though. Hope you got some goodies :D

Glad to hear your feeling better! Been praying for you, and thanks for solving those other problems!! What can you do about peace in the Middle East, and where I lost one of my flip flops, brand new pair! Arggghhh :)

Glad to be of service ;). Unfortunately I can't help you with that whole middle east mess, but I'm pretty sure you left your flip flops at your cousins the other week.

Glad you have reclaimed your health - missed seeing new "Loopies" popping up here on D.A..
 Regarding the climate and the economy; Ms. Mumford (your 3rd grade arithmetic teacher) is inconsolable.  Ever since she read your post, she's been curled up in the corner, mumbling "Doomed.  We're all DOOMED, I tell ya!". - - - I really thought she had stopped doing that after you moved on to fourth grade and she spent those two following years at that "Rest" academy.
Happy to have you back - enjoy the con!

Yea I was suspicious of your absent. And I am currently at war with global warming and the color green. The toll (opinion) on both sides have been great.
Trying to prevent them from taking over my planet is hard work. And we can meet at your designated randevu where we can plan the resistance against the
color purple to. If we don't do something, those fucks will rule our lives.

Also good to hear from you^^

I've missed you! Although I have had your book to keep me company on those cold chilly nights the past few months! I'm still looking to hang some of your art on my studio walls my friend, how do I get a hold of something? My walls are naked and are looking for some Loopy clothing!

Loopydave Featured By Owner Edited Jun 26, 2014  Professional
Nice to know I'm missed... usually I only hear that from people who are throwing things at me ;).
If you are interested in something for your naked walls, I've found a place here that does large photo prints.. if there's something in my gallery you like, let me know and I'll get you a quote. Post is pretty steep from here, but if you want more than one, I can put them in the one tube and save cost there.
Cheers man!

I was wondering where you'd gone, I was secretly hoping you were working on something huge like a comic/graphic novel/world domination or something, still good to know you are back and I hope to see your next project :)

Thanks Unclespikey! Had plans for world domination, but after doing the logistics decided it was just WAY too much work... I can barely keep my studio in order, let alone the whole globe.

I did lose it for a couple of days, but then found it stuck under the cushions of the couch... along with $1.25 in coins, two rubber bands and a paper clip.
