It's March so I thought I'd post another "I'm still alive" update. I just spent the weekend in Hokkaido (the northern-most island in Japan). It was pretty cool. Graduation is coming soon and I'll have some free time to write then hopefully. Stay tuned!
I'm still alive, I swear. Life in Japan has been pretty busy. I'll be sure to update you all in time. Heading to Hokkaido this weekend. I'll check in again afterwards.
New journal entry up and a clip from Blind Alley as means of an apology. I'm really sorry I've been gone for so long again! 
So I know I kept promising to post a picture for you guys. And I really did have a piece almost finished before I had to pack up and leave the states. But it turns out, my copy of photoshop cloud couldn't be carried on overseas. So it's sitting untouched in my desk drive. I'm terrible sorry for leaving you all hanging so long without apologizing too. 

So I am currently living in Japan. No, not Tokyo. I'm living in a rural area of Japan about three hours west of Osaka. Speaking of Osaka, just spent some of my winter vacation there. Never thought I'd actually get to visit so that was awesome. 

Anyway, I just wanted to post this up to apologize to all you guys. I am still working on my fanfics as a means of apology. But I can't promise anything. I may not be busy right now because school is on break- but breaks don't last forever. And my work does keep me pretty busy. As if my silence wasn't evidence enough. 

And because I kept promising and promising, here is a clip from Blind Alley as means of apology. I know it's not a comic or artwork, but some of you guys might enjoy it: 

'I don't care if I die,' he had said once. 'There are worse things.'
Ash picked up the knife with both hands. He stared at the blade hard, as if trying to comprehend what he had. He ran a thumb down the razored edge and drew blood. The sight almost made him laugh. Though it did make him grin ridiculously. They were so dumb! They had no idea the gift they had just given him!
Down, not across. Ash knew that much. When he had contemplated this in the past, the thought of blood had sickened him. He wanted it done quickly, painlessly. A bullet to the temple had seemed easier. But Ash lacked the convenience of a gun this time and blood had long since stopped bothering him. Now all Ash wanted was for it to be done.
If only that woman hadn't stopped him all those years ago. By saving his life, she had condemned so many more.
Ash sat on his feet and propped himself up by the door so he was sure that those White Ice bastards got a damn good view. Let them try and stop me.
He lined the blade up with the middle of his wrist and despite himself, closed his eyes. Do it quick, Ash. He told himself. Like ripping off a bandaid. The thought even made him smile.
Before he could apply the resolve he had been building, that voice cut through. It didn't sound in the air, but rather from somewhere inside. It came from down bone achingly deep and charged through his veins like a spark. The knife slipped from his twitching fingers and fell with a thud to the floor in front of him. Jarring as the sound was, Ash still reached for the fallen knife.
DON'T, came the voice again, the force of which literally stopped his hand in mid air. He struggled against it, but felt for all the world like he was pushing his hand against an invisible wall.
Ash drew back and gripped his throbbing head. “What... what is this?”
If you kill yourself, you'll kill me too, said the voice.
“Who are you?”
You forget me already, Ash? You put me here, after all.

こんにちわ. わたし の なまえ は シャノン です. 二十四さいです.

My name is Shannon aka. "Turtle" or "Ooshii Kurai" online.

I'm actually not an artist per say (although I had planned to be one at one time). I'm a college graduate- English Major, Creative Writing concentration. I plan to hopefully publish something in the future- preferably in the Young Adult (YA) section.

I'm currently working as an English Teacher overseas in Japan. It's made me fairly busy so I haven't been able to update any of my work lately.

I love comedy and making people laugh. So I use my art skills, or lack there of, to make comics.

I usually update on Fridays when I can.

わたし は 日本語 が すこし はなします.

Every night , someone thinks about you before they go to sleep,

At least fifteen people in this world love you.

The only reason someone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you

There are at least two people in this world that would die for you

You mean the world to someone.

Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.

When you make the biggest mistake ever,something good comes from it.

When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look.

Always remember the compliments you've received.

Forget the rude remarks.

So if you are a loving friend, send this to everyone on your list including the person that sent it to you.

Tonight at midnight your true love will realize they like you.

Something good will happen to you between 12 in the morning and four o'clock pm tomorrow, it could be anywere . Get ready for the biggest shock in your life

Do not break this chain. Send this to fifteen people in fifteen minutes !!

Make Someone else's day! Help get a smile on someone's face! Help someone out! <3 remember that your loved
