What I REALLY want to try & do is get more "design" based work under my belt before Memphis. Illustration gigs would be nice however. I am seriously low on logo design, print layouts, all the stuff I trained for 4 years+ I honestly feel like I wasted a Degree some days, plus having a diverse portfolio is always better than being yet another dude that does fan art.

The thing I miss the most about design jobs? Solving problems. Design is about making something work, not just looking nice. No other job had me thinking or using my brain as much, & the fear I may have lost that part of my brain over time kills me.

While me & @itsajahli are hard at work GENERATING cash for me to move to Memphis, Im still considering spending more to update my portfolio. For example, Im currently subscribed to the latest Indesign so I can self teach/work on print based projects. I may pick up a few others like Illustrator, Flash etc. Thing is, I have NOTHING to do. I have no Brief. I have ALWAYS done better when working with or for others. While @lunarblazecrew is still a thing Im leading, sad truth is its way easier to be told what to do than figuring it out yourself so the idea of me spending even MORE money thats going to be hard to replace when Im looking for a job in a new country is scary as fuck.

Not as scary as me trying to get a job with the degree I have & skills that are as woefully out of date as mine. Im 31 years old, when I move thats pretty much going to wipe out everything I have & give me a blank slate. I NEED to get my shit together. So yeah, Im worried, but mainly I just want to be able to get my life & my career back on track. But flying solo I just see the blank canvas, that white island, the void before creation, & I have no idea where to begin. Which is sad as fuck for a 31 year old "professional" to admit. *shrug* Apologies for the spam, just needed to share. Im not being negative, just trying to organise myself & get a bead on fixing my career.

So I finally got my shit together & set up my more “Personal” Patreon. This is where people can view my pinup art, concept design for my Fantasy Project (codenamed Wormwood) & of course, my porn. Because you know what, I rather enjoy making it, its been a while since I produced it on a regular basis, & Im honestly looking forward to sharing my new ideas with you all in a new setting. 

You can follow & subscribe to my personal feed right here: www.patreon.com/devillo

Plus getting some return on my time investment would be nice too! Please remember if NSFW art is NOT your thing you can support both me & my Fiance Ajahli over on our Family Friendly Patreon, right here: www.patreon.com/lunarblazestud…

So heres the design for Gabby, a character I've been playing around with for a while. Taken from the Wormwood project, shes an Elf Mage who's father was an Ambassador who was given the worst job someone like him could ever imagine, official envoy to the Goblin Kingdoms. While working amongst the anarchic creatures was a living hell for the Diplomat, his young Daughter flourished in the commercial, brightly coloured & noisy environment & soon grew into an equally colourful, brash & dangerous if playful creature. I have a few plans for this lady in the future, as well as the rest of the Wormwood universe so be sure to keep your eyes open.

We’ve spent the past couple weeks at Lunar Blaze Studios putting everything together and it’s finally ready! Patreon is like a tip jar for creators, and donating a certain amount gets you access to Patrons only creations we will make available a week or so in advance (right now it’s only Videos and Illustrations but there might be more depending!) Tiers may also offer more depending on how much we make per month. We set this up so that we can work towards living together and also becoming artists/creators full time, so every little bit counts!

If you like our work and you want to contribute to our future funds and have exclusive access to some behind the scenes stuff, feel free to donate! The lowest tier gets you access to the Patrons only feed where we will share development work, sketches, and other stuff too! If you can’t afford to donate, please signal boost if you can!

Hey kids, so ever since the site launched I have been looking into setting up my own Patreon account. For a while I was trying to figure out just what exactly I could do for you guys as well as regular illustrations, since I've been flirting around with videos as you have seen. Thing is, I have a real problem when it comes to focus. While myself & my Future-Wife Meg are hard at work on setting up our own studio for our collab work including the webcomic Grim Reaper School, my own work is a lot less easy to lump together. 


Many folks know that I spent several years doing fandom based illustrations for client, mainly gaming stuff like Warcraft, Halo etc. Another big chunk of my portfolio came from Adult art, Furry Porn, & yet again Warcraft based smut. Then of course on top of that you have the live streaming I have been trying to do on a regular basis which bounces from both the adult & more safe for work stuff that I do. Then add the attempt to do the occasional LP & you can see where I'm getting a little bit stuck in WHAT to make my Patreon appeal about. 


While I know there are some people who have multiple Patreons for different projects, I honestly don't know if I can create enough content each week for 3-4 different feeds, & I doubt all my regular art fans would want to have Azerothian Smut & Furry's banging away with my TGWTG/Doctor Who paintings. So yeah, I'm just trying to find a workable compromise where I can share the wide variety of things I do with the people who enjoy them, & get paid because having your Future-Wife in another country is a huuuuuge drain on my already craptastic budget. 


Suggestions, advice or any kind of ideas very much appreciated kids,

Shia/Drunkfu here. I'd just like to note that your little tiny tumblr bio blurp you have on your header is like a mirror image of my background and it amused me.
