Hi all. How have you been keeping? Good? Good!

Just thought I should post a note here because over the last couple of months I've had a few people asking about commissions and I have to keep telling them that I'm not currently accepting jobs, when I should really have it written on this page so they don't have to go to the trouble of emailing me. Forgive my laziness, internet!

So yez, since I've currently got a full-time art job keeping me very much busy, not only has my webcomic gone on temporary hiatus, but I shall also not be open for commissions for the foreseeable future. If anything should happen that would cause me to have some free time all of a sudden, I will update here so browsers visiting my page will be the first to know!

Thanks all, stay good.

  • Listening to: my wife singing the Phantom of the Opera songs
  • Reading: H.P. Lovecraft
  • Watching: Pushing Daisies, Frasier
  • Playing: all day long
  • Eating: for the nutrients


025 - Pikachu by Astalakio
025 - Pikachu
Friggin' Pikachu, man. I knew it was going to be a pain in the ass because it's the series mascot, and here's why: firstly, there's obviously a bit of pressure to get it right, since it's arguably the most important pokemon ever designed. Secondly, because of how widespread its image is, everyone knows exactly what it looks like, so if you draw even slightly off-model, it ends up looking like a weird, bootlegged version of a Pikachu. I mean, that didn't stop me from going off-model, but you get my point.

All I'm saying is, I always evolve my Pikachus. Raichu is much kinder to me.
023 - Ekans by Astalakio
023 - Ekans
I don't like that thing snakes do when they make their head all floaty-like.

Actually I don't like that thing snakes do where they continue to be snakes.

I hope you like the daily poke though!
021 - Spearow by Astalakio
021 - Spearow
He scream

Spearow was always my choice over pidgey, personally. It's kind of bedraggled looking but both it and Fearow have a bit more personality I think.

In other news, anyone else getting sick of that normal colour background??
