Fursuit, eye contact, silly poses 

I got this lovely costume while at Anthrocon this year!! It's a premade partial fursuit (head, paws, and tail) made by Melissa Mendelson. Check out her work here, she does fantastic stuff: melissamendelsonart.com/

I've been wanting one of these for a long while, I'm ecstatic to have it! The details are so amazing :D

The photos were taken by my lovely friend Sean Tanuki, as well.

Aaaaaa I'm so excited 8D

Thanks very much to everyone who donated on the Patreon! It's much appreciated. I'm still sorting out other options for payments, but it's still much appreciated :3

It does look like the S3 usage is ticking up, though, so I'm going to be keeping an eye on that moving forward.

The uptick in DigitalOcean costs was from transferring the server over to a new account—my own mistake! I didn't remove the previous droplet for the rest of the month.

Hey! Super happy to be part of this community :)

Does this count as social media? If so, this is a first time for me.

Thought I'd start by sharing something - at least for me - inspirational. Looking forward to get to know y'all!

Anthrocon 2019 

The furries are piling in :D

Oh hello, this is a new icon! Looks like we'll have to come up with another shape for this one. Perhaps a star or hexagon?

Also, I know it's a new month! I'll send y'all an update on what the expenses have looked like this month when I'm back from Anthrocon—around the 8th :D

My first ever solo game project—

aeriform.itch.io/dispatch

Been working on a Pride-related logo for the queer employee resource group I'm a part of at my company. These are intended to go on t-shirts, stickers, and other things to help people feel included at the office and at Pride events!

Notes: wow I came in real close to not meeting the deadline I set, next time I do this I'm absolutely giving myself extra time
