Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United States
I'm a part-time artist, electrical engineering graduate student, slide rule collector, railfan, watcher of mecha anime, avid reader, and geek-of-all-trades.

Primary Characters: Tankaa Kumawani (anthro pliosaur), and Ori Hadar (anthro D&D-type blue dragon).

I do not take requests. People who I'm on good terms with tend to get a bit of giftart, though. I'm currently too backlogged to do trades.

I usually do not RP. I've had too many bad (or simply lousy) experiences with it.

Current Residence: Northeast Ohio, USA
deviantWEAR sizing preference: L-XL
Favourite genre of music: Electropop/Synthpop
Operating System: MacOS 10.9/Windows 7
MP3 player of choice: iPod Touch
Wallpaper of choice: "The Night Hawks"
The word came down from Beaverton, only two co-ops will be retained, and none in the Applications department.  There's an across the board budget cut due to general weaknesses in the industry.  We must not waste money.  We must believe.  The implications for me are pretty obvious, I only have about eighty hours left on the time clock before I pack everything up.

Does this bother me?  Strangely enough, no.  There will be other jobs, I'll do a better job, and this post will be but a footnote.  It was a good lesson in how lax I've let myself become.  At least it didn't trigger gear acquisition syndrome (although an upcoming project will.)

Eight hours this semester.  I'll be taking the second Power Systems course, along with Linear Systems.

It's somewhat of a slump period.  I'm gradually chipping away at Esopus' commission, although being creative is a massive strain.

I'm working on initial planning and parts acquisition for a class AB "desk amp" built using miniature battery pentodes.  I'm pretty sure about the components themselves, but hooking it all together and figuring out values for passives will be the challenge.  I'll probably end up building some small loudspeakers too, but it should be able to get along with anything with 8Ω impedance that can handle a half-watt.

I see that you are drawing some good looking trains!I draw trains too, and I'm thinking about making an art trade.What do you think?

I'm tempted, and it would give me a reason to start experimenting with Illustrator more.  (I'm a little busy trying to get clothing references for my primaries together at the moment, plus a few other errands [properly boxing up my electronics part trays].)  Just drop me a note.

I sent you a note, but if you replied already I haven't got it yet... just tell me if you got it, alright?

I got the note.  Let me make sure that I sent out my reply, I didn't have much luck with sketching yesterday, I'll see if I can get something together today.
