New Internet

So i recently got usable internet at my house, up until now I had been using a satellite provider which limited my usage per day and basically was horrible. The only time I could upload stuff online was at 3 am, but now I can do it whenever so I will hopefully be able to post things more regularly.
Life has been alright lately, work has been growing more and more frustrating, but I think that may be partially because of the slowness of the summer season, seems to put many of my coworkers in unpleasant moods, but I digress. I've been hoping to kind of work less, not alot but alittle bit less so basically less then 40+hrs a week, primarily because I feel that being away from the aggravation that is being caused by some of the issues at work will help me be happier in general, but also to get more work done, and because i feel some of the reason for my hand hurting so much is due to carrying plates (I think I should locate my wrist brace).
This one is from a while ago, but I haven't posted it up here, kind of a funny story which involves the moose one below, the moose one was a commission and in the emails, she sent saying she wanted a mouse in the image, so i sketched out the above, and she asked if i could add in a moose cause that was what she had asked for. kinda funny I suppose.

So normally I never enter into contests for bands or things like that, where they ask you as an artist to put tons of time into something that they might not like. I think its moderately disrespectful, I mean if I owned a venue and wanted a band to play at it I wouldnt ask interested parties to compose a song for it, I would listen what they already have done, I digress. I did this for a Murder by Death album art contest, but I guess they didnt like it. Not really sure what to do with it really.
So I was also geeked, due to the new internet, I was able to watch the first episode of the new Torchwood. I have high hopes, they already made several references to the BBC series which were great, but I appreciate that while it Im sure will be slightly different in execution(no pun intended to those who watched), it does seem like it will have some of the same flare, and wont be utterly destroyed like what they've done to Being Human.
Other than that life is fairly normal I suppose, the growing lack of people in Middleville is perplexing however, now its just me and Dwain, and i rarely see him due to his significant schedule. Ive been considering moving, but I dont know where Id really want to go...

I do also need to try to get some more art jobs, possibly with a publisher or something along those lines

You really, REALLY should move to Grand Rapids. We'd love to have you here.
