After experimenting with the custom folders a lot, I was able to get my TF2 contracts working. The new stuff is pretty fun, and should keep me busy until the campaign ends in February. I also reached a milestone in time played and L'Etranger kills. Sweet!


In TF2 the new contracts aren't working for everyone yet, there's a ton of salt in the forums, and THANK GABEN the Righteous Bison does what it used to do! Looks like things haven't changed after all - it's good to be back~


So I had the house to myself most of the day. Other than the feeling that I had forgotten a chore, it was nice. I mostly just got house stuff done, but I could do it in my own time, quietly. I think that's what I want when I start to live on my own.


If the supposed leaks for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition are true...I may just be getting it.


Thanks to that Audible promotion, I got a code for $50 off any Amazon book! I'm probably gonna go with the hardcover Splatoon artbook, but is there anything similar you'd think I'd like? I don't really want the Hyrule Historia, cool as it looks.


I'm mega bummed-out right now, but I'm trying to see some kind of silver lining in what's to come, lest I become a bummer, too. Or maybe I'm just WAAAAAAAAAAAAY too tired. I think I'll go to bed.


That was fast! Someone translated a lot of the text in Shin Megami Tensei: Synchronicity Prologue. Some of it they weren't able to edit, but at least the important stuff is there! Link to instructions in the comments. Morning Bump!


And Post #3! I drew the Velvet Room from Persona 5 as part of a commission. The whole thing won't be seen in the final, but I thought it would help to have the whole room viewable. Version with Igor below, and a version below that with P5 SPOILERS!


Post #2! My copy of that Trails in the Sky fanzine came in. I won't be allowed to show my entry until November, though. Still, it's awesome to see my art next to that of other artists!


Triple post time! First up, the usual home trouble. Despite getting a 2nd part-time job, my Stepfather is REALLY pushing me into getting an overnight shipping job. I want to say no, but I don't think I'm "allowed" to. Maybe he'll forget once I'm @ Staples


In more-positive news, I just finished a series of commissions for a D&D-styled tabletop campaign. Each race is drawn in a real-world art style. It was interesting to experiment with! The rest are below in the comments.


So, it turns out I didn't get that part-time Motion Designer job at the TV station. I'm sadly not surprised, but it still sucks. For once I really felt like I had a shot at something big I'd like. I guess I'll focus on the upcoming printing job for now...


For some reason I have Rhythm Heaven's Glee Club song stuck in my head. Here's the Hatsune Miku version, so that you too may suffer its catchy wrath!


I held a Switch (well the Joycon grip at least) for the first time thanks to a demo at Walmart. While I'm not crazy-phantasmagorically-blown-away, everything was so nice and clean and sharp. A little smaller than I imagined, but not bad otherwise.


Playing Viewtiful Joe: Double Trouble has been fun so far! Some of the touch controls are a little finnicky, but I'm getting the hang of them. I know it's considered "gimmicky", but I miss the games that take advantage of DS/3DS features like this.


In other good news, the last of my 4 for $10 games came in today! I've had the other 3 for a few days now, but Viewtiful Joe took a little longer. I'll try it out now!


On the official Sonic stream they announced the SEGA Shop at http://www.shop.sega.com. It'll go live on Tuesday. They'll be selling all kinds of clothes, toys, etc for different SEGA series. Cool! I'm hoping they'll do Jet Set Radio eventually.


So, I did that thing where I was interviewed and they gave me the job then and there. I just have to do the background check online and I'm set! Not the biggest pay I've ever had, but I'll learn some things and it helps with money stuff. So yep!


Welp, I'm going out for the interview now. Thanks for your help before, everyone!


So my 2nd interview at Staples is tomorrow. What should I expect? Also, what's upselling like? I'm probably the only person who hasn't worked retail before, and I worry that I'll have trouble doing that for the job if I get it.

A somewhat-starving artist guy who likes games. Will probably make a pun if you give him long enough.
