---- Busy September and October------- Alot had happened ---I apologize for the lack of updates since this month has been a really busy month for me which I'll go into details as we go along Sept 1, my dad came home for vacation for 42 days. Sept 12, my buddy and I went out to have fun, more like a bonding moment before I start working on my new job. Sept 14 I went to Divisoria (shopping and bargain district) and bought clothes for the first time preparing for office work outfits. Sept 16, my 1st day of work, I was assigned to work from home for a week since renovation in the office is still on going... Sept 18, decided to ask my buddy to dine out and celebrate his birthday early before the storm gets really bad. So, we went out, tried this new Ice Cream stand then head off to Dominos Pizza to celebrate it started raining that time but we didnt mind the weather, whats important for me is to go out and have a great time. Sept 19, the Storm got crazy and its my buddy'a birthday, power went out a few times and I'm still working from home which is really a good option to stay home than go to the office and get stranded hahaha. Sept 20, since his birthday was postponed due to the weather, he invited me to his place to celebrate along with his college classmates. Still raining that day but it was worth it. Sept 22, still work from home, Sept 23, I my first day in office, my shift is 11am till 7pm but I leave home by 8:30am or 9am... arrive home by 9pm or 10pm... (I'll discuss my job in a while) Sept 26, my sister arrived home for vacation so we're a complete family again, YEY!
I started getting use to my job as October came, I tried to draw every saturdays and sundays last month but I got sick and get really drained over the week ends and its just now that I'm slowly adjusting with Office work and Commission work
---- Not so New but New Job ------- Coz I went back to my old job back in 2012 ---so, I went back to my old job back in 2012, but with a new job title, before I was "Web publisher / producer" and now a "Web artist"which is neat coz I dont have to do those technical stuff online but just produce graphics for story covers and graphics for sponsored clients. I know most of them but of course 2 years has passed and alot of things happened, new faces in the office and new floor layout. My 1st day in the office was really heart warming, every one kept greeting me "Welcome back!" and some would say "I guess you have realized how much you missed us" and some jokes at the office... I feel a bit shy in the office and intimidated when I made some mistakes or if I feel like someone is not comfortable with me in taking their request I'll just do my best and know that I;ve done my job at the end of the day. I also have a cool boss, well I use to work with him when the company is starting out and now he's our Art Director. I'm doing my best to adjust and study my schedule in doing commissions and work, the best time or me to work on drawings is on week ends, starting friday evening. I can manage to draw some drawings during the weekdays when i get home if I still have energy. I usually sleep around 11 or 12mn and wake up by 8am. It takes me 1hr and 30 min or 2 hours of travel from home to office. Depending if the traffic is heavy then it would take me 3 hours to get home... The job isnt that super tiring on regular days but what tires me most is the travel going home. Beating the traffic, try to find a bus that is not full and I dont have to stand inside the bus for the entire trip.
---- New Artworks and New Style ------- Anime style is not applicable in my job ---
For those who've been following me on Facebook, you'll notice that most of my post are from Rappler.com
page, and yes, that's where I work
So, you'll see some of my drawings there, its different from what you guys are used to see here in DA but I really think that Anime style is not a good style for the company thus I have to do different art styles according to story / article and mood. Although it may be exceptional on the right story but not by default heheh
---- Still Not sure about posting stuff on DA------- Since the banning ---
I still have some artworks that I havent uploaded yet, simply that I'm still afraid of being banned. Even if they're chibi drawings heheh
I just hope I have a notification on resolving things if I've violated anything rather than a surprised banned. I do have Pixiv and other site but I feel kind'a lazy uploading things the same thing on different site heheh... oh well might as well update them this friday.
---- EVERNOTE Commissions------- thank God for this app ---
After being busy for a long time, I never forget those commissions that I havent finished yet, but my trouble are commission details. Thank GOD for EverNote App hahaha I can finally take note and remind myself everywhere I go unless I have internet connection to sync my laptop and phone. I probably wont accept heavy commissions at the moment until I'm done with the current list. Unless if its dissidianized or something really simple and solo then I might accept it. But my priority are those in my current list
If you guys know a good app that reminds you things lemme know but now Evernote seems to be ok
Hope everyone is okey and doing well... btw... whats up with this new DA Layout? I'm not a fan of it hahaha
Hope I can get my groove back and maintain a balanced schedule for office work and commission work, till next week ends
