Well, its late, I should be asleep. But, instead, let's check the fuck in!
-Let's start simply: the family. On March 1st, Josie came into our lives. She had a bit of a rough start and, the day after we brought her home from the hospital, we had to take her right back! For several terrifying hours, I was afraid I was going to loose my new born daughter. Fortunately, everything worked out and Josie, now 6 months old, is doing great!
-No changes in pets at the moment. Worf is doing well but is starting to get old. Hopefully he's got another couple years in him.
-I got a vasectomy! That was an experience. Honestly, the worst part about the surgery itself was getting the local anesthetic. That felt like getting kicked in the balls HARD. But once it kicked in (and they had to do it on each side) it was totally fine. We spent the whole time joking around. I was on some good pain killers for the weekend and had to take it easy. For a couple weeks afterwards, I was sore and had some minor complications (NSFL warning: I had to express puss and blood from my stitches twice a day). But I'm all better now and in about two months we can check to see if I'm sterile. In the mean time, we have to use condoms again. I had forgotten how much it made sex smell like balloons.
-I had a blast at RTX! I am so glad I went. I got to meet a ton of RT peeps, like Jon, Miles, Josh, Marcus and Jeremy. It was funny meeting Jon as I introduced myself and at first he was very "Meeting a fan" mode but once it clicked who I was, he gave me a great big hug (Jon is my primary contact at RT when I do my freelance work). I really wanted to meet Burnie and Lindsay too (they are kind of my two favorite people who work at RT) but I didn't get the chance. Its too bad but there will be other opportunities. Like, literally next weekend, I'll be at Rose City Comic Con and I believe Lindsay and the rest of Team RWBY will be there, so I'll try to say Hi. If you were at RTX and I didn't see you, I am sorry. It was at times a bit overwhelming and I had to retreat to my hotel room more than once. The room was GIANT and way too big for just me. It had a sitting area for God's sake.
-I can't talk about it yet but I did a BIG project for RT. I think more information will come out soon but I can't talk about it more than that for now. If you were at Jon's Design panel at RTX, he mentioned it.
-My commissions are currently closed but I am planning to open them up soon. I will be increasing the prices from what they were before. I haven't 100% finalized it but they may go up in some cases double what they were before, perhaps more. I just need to figure out how much time I tend to spend on a commission and what is needed of me. With two kids now, my time has become really valuable.
-I'm going to be looking for other ways to expand my freelance work. Unless RT decides to make me full time, I need to get more clients coming in. I'd love to get back more into character design or storyboarding at some point too.
i think that's all for now. Its nearly one and I should try to get some sleep. I'll probably post another update in a couple months so check me out on Twitter @rogerbrunke for more regular updates! Peace my dudes!
