Argh! It's been a while. So sorry about that. As soon as I opened commissions, life got busier, but I'm on track again and can't wait to get up to speed with the rest of these commissions over the holidays. Thank you so much for your patience. :heart:

Hello! Hey, you fancy getting a little something special for Christmas, or just fancy treating yourself?

Well commissions are open again. I'll be taking 5 slots. I'll only be doing digital commissions at the current time. Each one will be £50 with extra characters and backgrounds costing an additional £20 each. Examples of previous commissions below.   
If you are interested in a commission please send me a note titled:"Commission" and please include reference of the character/s you would like me to draw. Paypal only.

Thank you!

:heart:

So when I said I'd update soon, over four months ago, I didn't realise I'd take that long. Oops! It's been very busy and productive setting up my new life in Brighton and things are settling down a bit now, so, I was going to open up commissions again.

I'll put up a journal when I update my drawing list with rates. I'm freelance now so I'm going to have to boost the prices up to help make ends meet here. 

I'll let you all know soon. And I promise soon this time.

:heart:
I'm back... kind of. Only popping my head in for a little bit at a time. Been so busy learning new things and now I'm off applying them in the real world. Very exciting and scary. 

Miss this place though! Hopefully I'll get a bit more me time soon to draw and share and generally be a bit more active here. ^__^

London was great in the end, but also had a brilliant time in Sussex, Kent and Sheffield too. Pretty knackered from the whole thing but its a good kind of tired. Like I deserve it.

Will update again soon.

:heart:
...but I love London town. :music: 

It's currently gorgeous here in Old Blighty. London itself is rather lovely in the sun, though commuting could take a long walk off a short pier for all I care. I love you underground, but you is so hot and stuffy and full of smells... Sun and busy-ness have addled my brain and have to keep on top of so many things (finances, travel,finding free accommodation in London for a start), but the storyboarding course is well under way and has been amazing so far. We have Frank Gladstone teaching us, and having someone with that much experience involved with our development is bloomin' marvellous. Really having a great time. I've travelled a good bit of the county attending conferences too. Attended the Children's media conference in Sheffield (which is also rather lovely. You're Peace Garden is great!) and then had to catch up with work back home in Cardiff over the weekend, so pretty exhausted.

Hopefully I can recover over the week and have some free time to get to the museums I've been itching to see. David Bowie exhibition at the V&A? Pompeii at the British Museum? Yes please.

As I'm not earning any money while I'm here I'm going to open commissions soon. I'm not sure when, there is a lot to do, but maybe within the next week. Being unemployed in London is an expensive business. Hope to switch that for a different career soon. XD

Catch you later! I miss updating and actually talking to people here!

:heart:
Needed to knock off that last journal and update here. It's been a while and quite quiet around here. This last week I have had to be very busy organising my plans and projects as this time last monday the company I worked for went under and everyone was let go, so I've been working hard to secure future work and oppertunities within the industry. Got some conventions planned and I'll be in London for a month on a storyboarding course to get up to scratch, so not going to be very active here while couch surfing Londinium and working my ass off. XD

But saying that, Moth and the Flame will be finished this week and a good friend of mine has been working on something rather exciting that I'll talk about at a later date. My optimism levels are alarmingly high. It's like I'm only stressed when things are normal, but when something bad and is supposed to feel like a crisis comes along, everything's great and will be fine... I think I'm broken, but I'm not complaining. Things are good. Really good. :)

I've finished all my commissions so at a time like this it'd be a good oppertunity to open more. I will do at a later date, but as I'm going to be on the road for a bit I think the earliest I can open them again is August. 

Hope everyone is having a good June. I was at the Harry Potter Studios yesterday so even more of a reason for me to be happy. Go! You must go! Its sooo amazing!

Much love

Jen :heart:

I have to keep this short cos I'm as sick as a dog right now and very stressed about a weekend that it packed with stuff I shouldn't be sick for. I'll be at MCM comic expo in London tomorrow, just passing through and then have a wedding on sunday, So on top of being ill I won't have time to make more Moff and Flickerlee pages this weekend.

But here is an interview and facebook feature with a new bit of art. Yay!

Wow, I havn't written a journal for yonks. How are you? Again sorry if I'm super slow answering notes and messages. I don't really get to use the comp for anything but work and comics at the mo so I'm not as active here as I used to be, but I try. This is a belated pimp journal to help nearest and dearest.

My friend whenpigsfly8992 needs some help making a bit of extra dosh to help pay for her tuition. It's pretty important she pays it off soon and she's taking commissions right now so please help her and get an adorable drawing off her at the same time! Amazing!!
Commission Pricing Sheet 5-17-13 [CLOSED!] by whenpigsfly8992 whenpigsfly8992.deviantart.com…

Also SuirenShinju is holding a competition right now where you could win some great prizes including a drawing from me. I've got one last commission to do and won't be opening them again for a while, so this is a perfect oppertunity to enter if you'd like to get a little drawing off me, whenpigsfly8992, elusiveCONQUEROR and some other great contributors :)
Details here: Revival of the Undertaking Life Contest :CLOSED:Prizes
Prize contributors will also have a say in judging since they're contributing something out of the goodness of their hearts and I feel they should have a say in who they choose to award their talents with. I also ask that if you want to judge/submit a prize that you not enter the contest for the sake of remaining objective. And since a bunch of users' entry will depend on the prizes, here's what we've got in the pool so far:
1st Place
:iconsuirenshinju: A year's premium membership, 300 dA points; 3 full fledged drawings; a one-shot story (if interested)
:iconstressedjenny: 1 Drawing
:iconwhenpigsfly8992: 300 dA points; Half body drawing with some shading
:iconelusiveconqueror: 1 full drawing
:iconcelesoran: 1 fully colored drawing with person* and background
:iconkiwigirl1: 1 Full Sketch
2nd Place
:iconsuirenshinju: 2 fully completed drawings
:iconwhenpigsfly8992: Portrait sketch
:iconcelesoran: 1 waist up colored drawing no back

And while I have my pimp on, imma pimp the Lingo show too cos I especially want to show off Leib's song which I story boarded and illustrated. I did that for most of the songs on the Lingo Show but I love Leib's the most. And I never really share stuff from my day job, so have a little treat. Sorry if the link doesn't work for some of you :( The Lingo Show is a pre-school show to help kids learn new words from around the world. It's pretty cute and fun and had a brilliant team working behind it at the studio I work for. I was mainly involved with the prop and background design and as a storyboard artist. Good times. Fingers crossed for season three!

Just wanted to stop by and thank all of you so much for the birthday wishes and messages and gifts. They really brightened my day and I really needed it. It's not too pleasant being stuck in work on a sunny day, especially when it is one's birthday. I want an adventure. Now the weather is starting to get good I have a whole bunch of plans for the weekends, but must get Moff and Flickerlee finished too (on top of everything else) :) Hopefully good things will come from it.

I've been really rubbish on dA recently and it's taken me so long to get back to peoples notes and comment on art and stuff. I'm so so sorry and I'm trying to put aside the time to thank you and comment as much as I can. :shakefist: Real life! Just be assured I keep an eye out on all your lovely art and writing and it always makes me so happy and excited. I just wish I was better at finding the time to reply straight away.

Here are some of my lovely giftie arts! They make me so happy!! I'll try and thank everyone as soon as I can properly!!

People please, could I kindly ask that if you want to re-blog my Moth and Flame comic on other sites like Facebook and Imgur, PLEASE don't post it with the April Fools page. That page isn't Moth and the Flame 17. It's called "Got Ya!". Without the explanation of what that page is it will create a lot of confusion to new readers and they won't know the story isn't over. I would really have appreciated if posters came to me first to ask permission, just so I could have got this point across.

I really love that you want to share my work, but please respect the flow of the story. I updated and re-submitted the April fools page with a new title and explanation 12 hours after I first posted it and wrote a journal entry about the joke to clear up any confusion, and blogging that page as part of the story is creating a bit of a mess on other websites, without that context.

I'll have Page 17 up by the end of the weekend :)

Thank you

Jen

First I just want to clear up that this Moff and Flickerlee page was an April Fools. Got Ya! by StressedJenny
Changing the title, updating it and writing about how it was a April fools slipped past some people XD So just wanted to let you know there are more pages to come. I can't wait to tell you the rest of their story but I've been hindered by real life, again XD

I've been working overtime and from home in a mad rush to get my workload off my back before my holiday to Berlin tomorrow. I'm failing to stay awake. I've never been so tired and I know walking around Berlin isn't the Best remedy for fatigue, but I'm sure the excitement is going to spur me on! If anyone can recommend any places to visit I'd love to hear about them. I've always wanted to explore more of Germany only having passed though it once on my way to Venice. and that was absolutely years ago when I was still a nipper, so it's going to be great to finally get over there. I've forgotten all my GCSE German so thats going to be interesting.

I'm really looking forward to it! :)

Hope you all had a great Easter weekend and I'll be back soon with more comics. :heart:

Hello! I'm back. You may have already come to that conclusion when I posted page 13 of Moff and Flame on friday and subsequently stabbed a majority of you in the feels and bathed in your tears and sobs of "NUUUUUUUUUUU!!" and "WHHY!!?" and (my favourite) "YOU F**K!".
For that I hollowly apologise, because, like the nature of the comic, the pain was unavoidable, but there is still more to come. I'm still in the process of torturing myself, my characters and most of you. There were a few comments where people assumed this was the last page in the story and I just want to assure you it's not, don't worry, I'll let you know with a big THE END at the end of it. Sorry in advance, but thank you all for for your comments and your emotions and numerous icons of crying. They make this worthwhile.  

I had a lovely time in the Pyrenees last week! I've been so busy since I've been back though, but the good type of busy. Hopefully if all goes well I'll have another page to you by this evening. But now I'm in need of a muscle relaxing bath (hiking around Bristol yesterday gone done my hip in) and a tidy up.

Oh dear, things didn't go according to plan today. I was supposed to get one more page done before my holiday, but I had some emergency stuff to do in work as I'm away next week, so sacrificed my day off and a page of Moff and Flickerlee. Hope it pays off. Pitching an exciting new project at the moment and it's certainly cheered me up after a very unhappy week. But now it is time for holidays and snowball fights and hiking and Skiing!
I've had quite a busy evening of packing and sorting out insurance and double checking my bag is the right dimensions for carry on luggage. Why is travel so stressful sometimes? Both excited and scared about the Skiing, never done it before. I think I'm gonna become a human snowball at some point. Hehe! I think I'm most excited about the walking and the scenery of the Pyrenees! I always always wanted to see it and now it's finally happening!! Hooray! :la:

Anyway. I'll be gone for a while but there should be a new page by next weekend. Hope you all have a lovely week!

I'm very excited. :iconbubblegumrobot: :iconlookhappy: and I will be off the the Pyrenees this weekend (mountains! yay!!) for a well needed adventure and rest. Looking forward to the hiking and the skiiing. I've always wanted to go to the Pyrenees so this is going to be very special with friends. ^__^

I hope to get one more page of Moff and Flickerlee to you on friday before I go. It's getting pretty heavy now and I really appreciate all your encouragement and tears. It makes it all worth while... :iconlazycryplz:

Also I squeed quite a lot to see what :iconalaxanderbind: animated...

That I'm not answering messages or notes at the moment. I'm being rather antisocial online as I'm cracking on trying to get a heavy workload of comics and commissions completed. Real life getting on my case an all that jazz XD

Thanks for understanding.

Well it's still January, but I'm well into one comic at least and that's more than I could have hoped for this year. I hope I can be this productive all year *fingers crossed*. I just really wanted to thank you all for your comments and support for the Moff and Flickerlee comic so far. I always love reading your feedback, and the emotional investment in it is the drive I need to keep going with this comic and other stories I have planned. I hope I can juggle them all! A massive thank you too, to jcroxas for the DD! That was really kind! Thank you all :heart:
Eeehehe, had to post these too... So cute!

Also, while I'm here I just wanted to post this animation from mon amigo :iconbubblegumrobot:. It was so fun to see this unfold. All of us in the house provided voice acting, Mikey (Wolf) also did the sound and Luke (Ostrich) made it all move beautifully. Just wanted to share his hard work with you after watching the whole process happen. ^__^

I just want to reassure that commissions are still being worked on. Progress is slower than usual because of multiple jobs to do through the week, including comics and web design. Its been a busy new year already, with Lots on the go right now. I'm sorry to everyone who is still waiting for theirs, but I want to do the best job I can on them and don't want to rush. But I havn't forgotten you. :heart:
