Well... Hello there. Been a while, hasn't it?
Yes, I'm doing a quick update apologising for my complete lack of presence these past few months. Can't say much apart from doing a degree away from the computer which I normally do art on (which is now on it's last legs) wasn't helping the process. Not to mention I'm in my third year now, which is when stuff gets really big and I needed to focus my efforts on that. I know you all understand. That having been said, I've still got a couple months to go, so it's not going to be a return just yet, this is just more of a "so now you know" deal.
I am sorry it happened like this, but as I focused more and more on my work, I focused less and less on art. That doesn't mean I don't still enjoy it or still want to do it, just that is became less of a priority and less convenient. I know I've missed, like, 2 whole Toku shows, and maybe when I come back I'll try make up for lost times, but I'll try get back on the horse come summer time.
On another note, thank you to all of the people who point out when my artwork is being used without my consent. It really does warm my heart to see that you all care enough to let me know so I can put a stop to it, and you have all of the gratitude I can give. Recently however, I noticed a guy using them for some pretty cool shirts. Those "Keep Calm And..." shirts that, being British myself, I've come to know and love (and be surrounded by 24/7...). I asked him to take them down because they were using my art and he was such a gentleman about the whole thing, that I decided to go into a kind of 50/50 deal with.
So, for shirts with my artwork actually endorsed by me, please check out: www.facebook.com/RussJericho
for his page, and russjericho23.spreadshirt.co.u…
for the shirts themselves. He's also a big PR fan, and a digital artist doing some awesome Zeo work. Please spread this around and tell people to use this site, because I've seen countless people selling my designs and quite frankly I can't take them all down by myself, so the least I can do is try direct some traffic to someone who actually was very good about it, and is decent enough to respect the source artist.
That's really it for now. Expect some updates in the coming months and maybe some trickle of artwork that I just haven't uploaded yet. Again, sorry, but life does it's thing, and we've all just gotta roll with it.
Thanks everyone, happy 2014, and see you all again soon!
