Would anyone be interested in a quick typography tutorial, to help better understand to use fonts?

Hey everyone! I hope you all are doing well so far in 2015, creating projects, and looking to improve. :)

I admit that things have been very slow and dry on my side as far as uploading on deviantArt. There have been a few commissions I've been working on, so the personal projects have been a bit slow. 

However, something else has been on my mind as of late, and it has to do with my working job. Recently, it is announced that my employer (Georgia Perimeter College) will be merge with my alma meter (Georgia State University). What does that mean for me? Nothing is too sure; however, there is already statement that some staff will be let go.

I'm staff (soft chuckle).

So I don't know exactly if I will lose my job after the merge, or if my pay changes. Right now, the situation is very unknown, but not feeling positive at the moment. I'm starting to feel like Elmer Fudd, and go out hunting for more work. lol 

So while changes are happening work wise, this has inspired me to result to drawing more. And hopefully not indulge into too much coffee. I need to change that too. 

I'll update when I can on this matter, or anything else. Until then, keep havin' fun in 2015! :)

Contro out.

Animation addict since age 6, and will never stop lovin' animation! Been sketching different things on my tumblr (link below) and pushing my drawing skills. I also enjoy critiquing art, if you're ever interested for critiques note me. Just be warned that I am hard to please, and I look to see how the project can be better, not to stroke your ego.

Hey Malcolm! It seems it has been a while - I'm doin' alright, watching some fun animation (shows/movies) and meeting up with some animators in Atlanta! :) 

How have you been? Still animating bro?

That's cool to hear. I'm doing well, been keeping busy. I've actually been doing some clean up work for an artist over in New York. But as of late, I've been focusing more on commissions as well as getting prepped for gastric bypass hopefully sometime this month. So yeah, it's been a quite a year.
