Hey everyone!

It's almost that time again. A New Year! And with it, a few announcements.

From now on I'll be posting NF updates on the New Feelings Tumblr and peripherally at slongo.us (still under construction). Both sites are still very primitive but they're coming along.

Why the change? I guess I just wanted to make these posts a little more communal and visible. Looking back at the early NFs I noticed an attempt, from my side, to be openly inviting, and it annoys me that this feeling got lost along the way. Shouldn't that be the whole point of something like this?

On a similar note, I've created a NF facebook page. So, if you're into that kind of thing, friend me or "like it", or whatever. I figure there's nothing explicitly "sellable" here anyway, so might as well make it a party, right? Friends before ends? Fails before sales? Or sumthing like that.
It's another easy way to follow along. 

And lastly, I thought it'd be nice to share some of my favorites entries from the past two years. Celebratory highlights, w/ tiny insight as to why. Makin' way for a new month in Jan 2011.

Hope to see you there!

Hey -

Here's some facts! It's a new, beautiful month and I was thinking about drawing some straightforward NF's. I'm sure, as a reader, this last month has been fairly dismal, but I've enjoyed messing around. I have the feeling though, that if I really wanna do this right I'll have to take a break first, too much of that doodle energy lingering in my mind - maybe like, January?

Don't worry, I'll make sure to make next month...I dunno, super enjoyable? But until then, I'll be posting stuff that interests me over on my Tumblr. I've actually been thinking about switching over there entirely lately...but we'll see.

Also, I'm working on a few longer stories that I'm feeling pretty good about. Check out this unfinished background fragment. Pretty cool, right? :)

Feeling inspired. Gonna finish some work tonight.

The ghost Kells comes from this video. What one Youtube commenter describes as "The 'REAL' Panty Droppa". For some reason I felt like this had to be distinguished from my own handwriting.
