*(XXX is "30" in roman numerals, ya pervs)
Well, I'm 30 years old today (well, in 2 hours technically), I figure this would be a great time to give you some updates about what's going on in my life, various projects, etc..
Even though I haven't been that active here on DA, I can tell you that I am definitely putting out a lot of work! Right now I am fortunate enough to be able to work full time on my own projects, both commercial and experimental/fun. It is a lot of work, but I LOVE it. I am excited to get up every day and work on my obsessions.
Web comic launch - ANGEL FOOD
I have been working on a web comic for the past year or so, and I've finally launched it! It's called Angel Food and you can find it at angelfoodcomic.com. I really want to make sure I was committed to it before launching it, so I created a 78-page buffer before I even posted the first page. Now, I'm finally ready to release it! It updates every Sunday. What else can I say about it? Go read it!
APPS AND BITS
4 years ago, I started a business making mobile apps and games. Well, it is actually starting to become pretty successful! We have been able to hire on some freelance artists and even employ a part-time programmer.
Our most popular apps are part of the CreateShake App Suite. Our Wedding Cake and Wedding Dress apps are the most popular, but the Manga Girl character designer is also pretty popular (and with an upcoming update, it should be even more popular!). And we are always working on putting out new apps. You can learn a little bit more at the createshake.com. The name of my business is Sky Orchard Studios, and it is run by me and my partner Kai.
ARTIST SEARCHSpeaking of putting out new CreateShake apps, I need some help! I have been putting so much work into many of the other parts of the app and business, I easily become overworked and I'm not able to put out as many apps as quickly as I'd like. This is just one of the issues you have to deal with when you have a growing business, so I need some help from other artists! These are paid positions of course, so if you are freelance artist looking for work, please apply here.

YES I'm gonna do Rainbow Dash and Apple Jack to finish the collection, likely in the next month or so. So hold yer horses. And even though I'm talking to Bronies, I don't mean that as an innuendo.
P.S. the top fairy image is an unfinished, unreleased image of mine, so look forward to that.
