My body is ill and clearlyhates me. And I have a meeting at 10:30. Joy.
Anonymous said: Hey Jamie! My anxious nature made (and love of dragons) made me send you this question. When are you planning on finishing the Giratina piece (really looking forward to that)? Also, do you have any plans on drawing another legendary on the new format?
Hello there, Anon! I figure I might as well do a small life update whilst I’m here, haha. The answer is yes! Giratina is still sizzling away in the background, its just been a very hectic year for me. I got made redundant in February by the company i worked with and had to go freelance for them (basically to save them money…which is nice of them) And it kinda fell apart there, they didn’t have to provide me with anything, so I had to look for my own stuff to do, hence the sheer amount of pokemon commissions that keep popping up XD
And along with this, I’ve been sourcing out to other companies and i am finally getting myself some decent work from other corporate companies, which is great!
Giratinas been an annoying one because I’m keen to push myself for it, but I’ve just not got the hours to do it at the moment. All the time i currently have goes into corporate work first, as it pays the most with the least amount of effort, then commissions, as id feel bad doing personal work before someone’s piece that has been paid for, then finally enjoyment work. And sadly, those bits at the moment are more leaning towards sell-able stuff. So posters, t-shirts, that sort of thing. Anything to bring a little extra money where possible.
The idea is that I want Giratina to be the first in a series of pokedex posters. I plan on setting up a little bit of a brand to go with it, but yeah, it means finishing the damned painting, then formatting the poster, writing the pokedex and creating additional artwork for it too. so there’s lots to do!
After that? I’m not so sure on legendaries. I need to retouch the weather trio at some point, but after that i might tackle Arceus to go with the Giratina piece. Non legendaries wise, I’d like to finish Delphox, and various others :)
Thanks for the message anon! :D

Nope! I don’t think Redbubble has the capacity to make books, so I wouldn’t have put it on there. I’m working on a set of posters, but otherwise, everything I’m selling is up there :)
Damn you, it looks like so much fun :(
genuine question, how does it play on a regular 3DS? Is it too small? I’m curious!
plus you know…if anyone has a spare code, well I wouldn’t say no.
EDIT - A rather generous tumblr user was kind enough to gift me a code, so thank you so much to flufflyneko for being so generous :D
Tally ho !!

Is it a cat or a weasel? The world may never know
garbage. it’s literally garbage.
an overweight lizard with yellow head feelers.
That if I’m still watching bugs bunny and other cartoons, laughing my ass off in bed at age 24…it’s probably not going to change.
I’m cool with that.
