     "Happy New Year everyone! I'm back and the computer is fixed! Sorry about the delay but everything is in working order now and I will proceed to resume the regular posting schedule! So, for today, I just have a small update but this is due to the fact that much bigger things are on their way! The update is to the 'Voiceless Songs' Items section! Full color versions of all that lovely work there. Well, I hope you have all been well and that your New Year is starting off well! See you all Friday! Cheers!"

     "Hey everyone! So, between the arrival of the new school semester, the ending of the holidays and the repair of the main computer here, the schedule of things is a little off kilter. This means that, yes, there is a new page of 'Imagination' finally up for your viewing pleasure but Charlotte will not be posting as of yet. Don't worry, we're almost all sorted out! With that said, please check out my Classes section if you are in or around Ontario as I am starting teaching again! Classes start tomorrow but you can still sign up if you like. Well, I hope your week ends off well and you do enjoy your weekend! Take care and see you Monday. Cheers!"

All I have for you is a piece of Artwork so feel free to check that out. I apologize but I promise to have everything sorted out soon. At present, I have just been working on preparing too many things so I've focused on getting the simplest done first so that story will be up and running soon. I promise. Well, have yourself and excellent start to the week and I will see you again Wednesday! Cheers!"

So please check back Friday and I will let you know how things are going! Until then, best wishes for the week! Cheers!"

     "Hello everyone! Okay, so, I know I haven't been here to update and I deeply apologize for that. Thankfully (for me at least) this one wasn't my fault. My Internet has been down since the start of last week and it was just restored over the weekend so I was unable to get anything posted so, for that, I deeply apologize. All that aside, just to let you know I have not been slacking, I finally have up for your viewing the new story titled 'The Snowman's Pants'. It's pretty ridiculous but hopefully you'll get a kick out of it! As well, for your patience, I have posted a new piece of Artwork from our studio's headline series, 'Saigo Yume'! So check it out and say hello to Cody (bottom of this page)! Well, with all that said, I promise to be back on Wednesday no matter what! I will have for you then an update to the 'Voiceless Songs' section, Friday Charlotte will be having me post another new page of 'Imagination', and come next Monday, I'll have the first official page of 'The Snowman's Pants'. For now, there is just a character for you to check out. Well, I do hope you have all been well in my absence and I will be sure and see you Wednesday! Until then, take care. Cheers!"

You'll all hopefully get a chance to see some of that productivity in coming weeks. But, for right now, indulge in the new page of 'Thunder Struck'! Now, I want to take a brief moment to be a little opinionated and have a tad bit of a rant. I apologize for this digression but it's been something that has really been bothering me and I can't seem to shake it. As you have probably noticed, I teach art. Now, I am by no means the best artist out there but I pride myself on teaching the fundamentals then foster individual creativity. However, I have recently encountered a large number of art teachers (both via personal encounters and through students of mine) who have a rather disproportionately negative view of anime. Now, I know anime is not for everyone and that is totally cool by me. Everyone has their own personal preferences especially when it comes to art. It's only natural when it comes to such a subjective field. However, I've been told that if you draw anime, 'not to worry, you'll grow out of it'. This I believe stems from the notion that all anime is for children and all anime is simple and unskilled. This very uninformed misconception most likely stems from the work of a lot of studios who handle the import of anime. Much of the anime that airs on television (or has aired) was heavily edited to fit into the prominent Westernized notion that 'all cartoons are for children'. As well, for the most part, what they bring has not been cream of the crop. This isn't to say it's not good, but it'd be like judging all Western cartoons just by watching an episode or two of 'The Super Friends'. There are a broad variety of anime that is highly skilled, thought provoking and intensely complicated. There is a large portion of anime that is well beyond the comprehension or appropriateness of a child (which can lead me to another misconception: just because it's anime, doesn't mean its porn! But, I digress). So, I know it can be a bit much to ask but, try not to judge before you understand what your judging. However, some of the worst I have heard comes from art teachers who regard anime as a useless style and 'not really art'. This, coming from an art teacher makes me a little sick. I've even heard of one teacher who refers to anime, to his students mind you, as 'Jap-Crap'. This, I feel, is simply borderline racist. I may have missed the point here, but I always thought art teachers were supposed to foster creativity, broaden a students artistic horizons, and teach skills and techniques. Instead, I find a large number of these teachers presenting bias opinions and teaching students, instead, to discriminate, despise and disregard certain forms of art. And so I come back to my original statement. I'm all for people having their own preferences but don't let those overpower you to inspire hate. Teachers in such a position of power and influence shouldn't, in my opinion, be teaching discrimination and hate. Again, it was always my belief that art teachers were supposed to help expose students to a wide variety of art. I may be wrong I guess. So, all I can say then is thanks to all those teachers who don't let bias guide their work and who don't teach students to hate something they hate. I admire those who teach and who teach well. And thanks to you all for listening to my ranting. I don't ever expect everyone to like the same things (hence why I present so many different kinds of stories) but, if you must hate and express that hate, at least give a reason why and express that it's a personal reaction. And, if your teaching at the time, try to foster open-mindedness... it might just benefit your students a little more. Well, thanks again for listening. Sorry to go off on a tangent like this, just needed to get things off my chest and this seemed to be a really over-the-top kinda way of doing it. Thanks again and enjoy 'Thunder Struck'! See you back (hopefully) Wednesday for another 'Voiceless Songs' repost! Take care of yourself and enjoy your week. Cheers!"

For those of you who are wondering, the additional sections (such as Character Profiles and the like) will be going up after the Promo has been completed. Well, that just about it for me.

I hope your Fridays all go well and that your weekends starts out well! I have for you today a new page of 'Voiceless Songs', the repost of the chapter page for chapter two! As soon as this chapter is done, the new stuff will begin! So, I've started playing 'Digital Devil Saga' and am quite enjoying it. Think of it as sort of a post-apocalyptic 'Final Fantasy X'. I plan to pick up the second one when it arrives and, at some point, go back and play 'Nocturne'. Regardless, I recommend 'Digital Devil Saga'. Well, I've rambled long enough! Have an excellent weekend and see you Monday! Cheers!"

Today, I have a new page of 'Thunder Struck', which is nearing it's close. I had an awesome art class over the weekend, one of the best ever! Seem to have hurt my back pretty bad... hopefully I'll get it fixed soon. Played 'Digital Devil Saga', learned that devouring flesh is the way to go. Saw Paul (the third Studio head), always good times. And that just about sums it up. I plan to get new art up and start completing the new stories and pages I've been working on. So keep checking in for new stuff! Have a great start to your week and see you Wednesday for more 'Voiceless Songs'. Cheers!"

Here is the new page of 'Voiceless Songs' for you all! As I said, we'll soon be done with the reposts and moving into the new pages! On a side note, I highly recommend 'God of War' for the PS2. I'm quite impressed with it from the story to the graphics, from the game play to the artistic style of it all. So, with that said, I'm off to try and get some more work done! I'm thinking that once this section of 'Thunder Struck' is done, I might start posting a few other Promos so that you all can see just what it is that I have been working on. Either that or I might just continue posting the next section of 'Thunder Struck', or maybe another story altogether. Meh. I'll decide later. Cheers!"

     "Hello everyone! Good to be back after the weekend! I hope that everyone had a great weekend and that you have a good start to your week!
A new page of 'Thunder Struck' is up for you all so feel free and take a look. My weekend was pretty relaxing, not much doing of anything really. Got some drawing in and am having one of those flip-flops where I can't quite decide now what story to work on next for the site... So many ideas, so little time.
But, fear not, something new will be taking the place of 'Thunder Struck' as, although there is more to the 'Thunder Struck' story (mainly parts in which the protagonist is actually clothed) I think I'd like to take a break from it and work on something a little different for a change. Well, we'll see just what that is soon enough! Anyways, take care and I hope to see you back Wednesday! Cheers!"

     "Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was quite good! Lots of visiting with friends, finally got to check out 'Ghost in the Shell: Innocence'. Very nice. Other than that, a bit of 'Final Fantasy XI' and a bunch of drawing to round things out. Now, down to business. There are some new updates to the site. First, of course, is the new page of 'Thunder Struck'. I've taken some time to look over my progress in doing comics and I think that I'm getting better at it. I mean, I'm nothing stellar (my strength still lies in the singular drawing) but I'm getting better at drawing comic pages (and multiple, smaller, images on said page). I'm getting there. Anyways, next is a new link added to the bottom of the Library (now named the Comic Library to help sort out any confusion). This new link is a description and explanation of the Web Ratings issued to each comic. As you have no doubt noticed, each comic is given a rating much like TV shows. Well, if you're interested in finding out more about what these means then feel free to check out that link. Mind you, these are my interpretations of the ratings. My system doesn't necessarily represent everyone's. But it works on the same guidelines. Lastly, for those of you interested in taking classes with me, I have updated the Classes section to reflect my summer classes set. The classes have been redesigned so even if you have taken classes with me before, chances are you'll be getting something new. So, if you are in Ontario and are interested in taking art classes from me, feel free to check out the info provided. Well, I'm off to do a little more story work. Have yourself and awesome start to the week and I will see you all here Wednesday! Cheers!"

     "Hello everyone. First off, I just want to apologize. Things have been off to a bit of a slow start this week and, to this point, I haven't got any drawing done. The reason for this is a little complicated. Although I had an awesome weekend teaching and hanging out with friends, they all can attest to the fact that I wasn't overly active. Even though I was having an awesome time, I was having a steady burning ache at the pit of my stomach that grew steadily worse as the weekend progressed. I brushed this off and kept going. However, Monday morning I was still in tons of pain so I opted to go to the doctor, who promptly sent me to the Hospital. So, presently, I've been spending a good percentage of my week in and out of the Hospital and being given every number of tests to try and figure this out. I'll know more soon but, at present, they know that this was the source of my mysterious back pain a couple of weeks back. What this pain is and how I got it... I'll know more soon. Anyways, I mention this not to worry anybody (I'll be fine, I'm a medical anomaly remember?) but just to let you know that I will do my best to post when I can and draw when I can over the next little while. However, if I miss an update or don't have anything to post, you'll know why. Thanks everyone, I appreciate the understanding. Now, down to business! Here is the next repost of 'Voiceless Songs' so take a look! And, again, if you are interested in taking some of my classes, check out the Classes section for a posting of my summer timetable and see if you might be interested. Well, take care everyone and have a good remainder of the week and I will see you Friday if all goes well. Otherwise, I'll do my best to post over the weekend. Thanks! Cheers!"

     "Hello everyone. Happy Friday the 13th! I'm glad I'm able to make this post on time. I'm still not feeling too much better but the good news is, I'm not feeling much worse. I've had a bunch of tests scheduled, some I'm waiting on results, some I'm waiting for the actual test, and some have tested fine.
In other words, we're still not sure what's wrong. But no worries, it'll be figured out soon and I'll be fine. Anyways, the next repost of 'Voiceless Songs' is up! So feel free to check that out! I'm going to try and get back to work next week as the reposts of 'Voiceless Songs' are almost done as is 'Thunder Struck'. But, don't worry, I'll have stuff to post in its place in no time. And, yes, the Classes sections, again, has been updated with my summer class timetable so if you are interested in my newly-redesigned classes, check it out! Well, I'm off to rest a bit. Oh! And for those of you interested in the 'Final Fantasy VII: Compilation' (a series of sequels and prequels dealing with 'Final Fantasy VII'), then I just found out some good news! 'Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children' (the movie sequel) will be released September 14th with a simultaneous release in Japan and America. As well, it's been said that 'Dirge of Cerberus' (the Vincent-centered sequel to 'Advent Children') will be released 'sooner than we think' says Nomura.

Still feeling pretty awful, lots of pain still in my stomach that doesn't seem to be letting up. However, as long as I do as little as possible (driving, laughing and even too much walking irritate it) then I'm okay. As you may have noticed, this is not a good permanent solution. Ah well. I have some more tests coming up so hopefully they'll figure out what's going on and fix me. So! On to the better stuff. The new page of 'Thunder Struck' is up so please feel free to check that out! As well, as I have been mentioning, my redesigned summer classes are posted in my Classes section if you are interested in taking any.

     "Hello everyone! I do hope you all had a good weekend. I'm still just as sick as ever but I'll have at least some results by the end of the week telling me either what this is or what this isn't. So, all is going fine. No worries. Okay, so. Time to get down to business! As you all probably know already, 'Thunder Struck' wrapped up last week with the final page (the Cover Page) going up today along with an update to the Character Profile section. As well, by the end of the week, the final re-posts chapter two of 'Voiceless Songs' will be up and that will have wrapped up. The only problem being that I'm not well enough yet to have got any official hard work done on anything new. The next two chapters of 'Voiceless Songs' are all drawn and one is even scanned, but the color/site-prep process for it is both long and labour-intensive. Therefore, I won't be able to get it all up and running just yet. So, this illness has forced me to make a change to the site which, actually, I'm quite happy with and I hope that it will suit everyone just as well. The biggest demand on this site has been for 'Owl and Fish-man'. Everyone seems to enjoy it. I enjoy it. I like writing it, drawing it and posting it. And, on the plus side in my present case, it's also not hard to do. So, this is what I've decided. 'Owl and Fish-man' will now start a regular posting schedule starting next Monday. What this means is, I'll be posting a new page of 'Owl and Fish-man' every Tuesday and Thursday giving everyone two new pages of 'Owl and Fish-man' every week. Now, what about things like 'Voiceless Songs' and other such stories? Well, they are still going to get posted. How you ask? Well, when I'm feeling well enough to work on these, I will. But I won't post them immediately. I've had a lot of people commenting on how they get frustrated with my stories cause they want to read each chapter all at once. So, I've decided to lend a bit to all you folks who feel this way. What I'll be doing is (when I can manage it) I'll be posting full chapters at the end of each month of the other stories on the site. This works out for me in that I get more time and flexibility in working on these stories, and it work out for you all because you still get the regular stories plus weekly 'Owl and Fish-man'. So I hope this works out for everyone! Hopefully I'll be well soon and we'll see just how well this works out. Anyways, have a good week! Enjoy 'Thunder Struck' and I'll see you back here on Wednesday for more 'Voiceless Songs'! Cheers!"

So I hope this works out for everyone! Hopefully I'll be well soon and we'll see just how well this works out. So, there you have it! Enjoy 'Voiceless Songs' and I will see you on Friday. Cheers!"

     "Hello everyone! Hopefully you have all had a great week. Well, I got back a bunch of test results and they seem to check out okay so I'm down to my last few check-ups and procedures to find out what's wrong. So I'll know soon. However, all that aside, I did what I could yesterday and I prepared a little update for you all. Check out 'Owl and Fish-man' for an update to the Locations section in Extras. As well, I have re-posted the Character Profiles, Items and Weapons in high-definition just for you! What this really means is that I cleaned up the images by running an eraser over the originals and re-scanning them with my spiffy new scanner. They do look much nicer though and I figured it was due in honour of the new 'Owl and Fish-man' update schedule. I plan to do the same with the comics when I get some more energy so that'll be going up soon. As well, I have an update to my Fan Art section so check that out for some awesome gifts! And that's not all! Charlotte is even in again today to say hello so check it out below my post! Now, lastly, just so everyone is on the same page, here is the bulk of my Monday post about the future of the site: The biggest demand on this site has been for 'Owl and Fish-man'. Everyone seems to enjoy it. I enjoy it. I like writing it, drawing it and posting it. And, on the plus side in my present case, it's also not hard to do. So, this is what I've decided. 'Owl and Fish-man' will now start a regular posting schedule starting next Monday. What this means is, I'll be posting a new page of 'Owl and Fish-man' every Tuesday and Thursday giving everyone two new pages of 'Owl and Fish-man' every week. Now, what about things like 'Voiceless Songs' and other such stories? Well, they are still going to get posted. How you ask? Well, when I'm feeling well enough to work on these, I will. But I won't post them immediately. I've had a lot of people commenting on how they get frustrated with my stories cause they want to read each chapter all at once. So, I've decided to lend a bit to all you folks who feel this way. What I'll be doing is (when I can manage it) I'll be posting full chapters at the end of each month of the other stories on the site. This works out for me in that I get more time and flexibility in working on these stories, and it work out for you all because you still get the regular stories plus weekly 'Owl and Fish-man'. So I hope this works out for everyone! Hopefully I'll be well soon and we'll see just how well this works out. So, there you have it! Have an excellent weekend and I will see you Monday for new 'Owl and Fish-man'! Cheers!"

     "Hello everyone! Okay, I realize I made a mistake on Friday, saying that I would be back on Monday but, as the new schedule goes, I'll be posting Tuesdays and Thursdays. So here I am. Now, today I don't have a very big update... my illness has prevented me from getting as much work done as I intended. But it'll be ready soon. So, for today, you'll have to just settle for an update to 'Owl and Fish-man' in terms of the 'high-definition' pages. Like the Characters section, I went through, erased the original construction lines and re-scanned the images with my high-quality scanner. As well, I corrected some of the text and the like. So check that out and come back Thursday for some artwork and the like. I'll be putting up new 'Owl and Fish-man' come next Tuesday. Thanks for the patience. Take care and see you Thursday. Cheers!"

     "Hello everyone! Okay, so... the first week of the new update schedule and things went well enough. Now, thanks to being fairly immobilized, I've had plenty of time to work on 'Owl and Fish-man'. Drawing has become a slow process but planning is generally okay. I've planned a lot of 'Owl and Fish-man'... a lot. So lots of 'Owl and Fish-man' to be had! Today though, I have an update to my Artwork section! This is a bunch of stuff that I had done a little while ago and mustered up some scanning time to post it for you all! So check it out! Well, I'm pretty exhausted already so have yourselves a great end to the week, a great weekend, and I will see you back on Tuesday! Cheers!"

I had a busy weekend and am feeling rather awful today as I was yesterday... not well at all. Unfortunately, this means that there will be nothing new posted today. I'll do my best for something on Thursday so please check back then. Regardless, I will have something up soon... so just hang on. Thanks for your patience. It is appreciated.

As I am still unwell, the actual art process has been slowed more than I had anticipated. I do apologize once more. However, to show you that I am still on task and to at least give you a little something to look over, take a peek at the new Character Profiles.

     "Hello everyone! Although I was feeling quite a bit better at the start of the week, I can now say that I am back feeling quite awful and utterly exhausted. I love teaching. In fact, it is one of my favourite things. However, the sheer exhaustion that comes from the energy I am putting forth is entirely wearing me out. Luckily I have next week off. The week after as well before I am back teaching. So I have plenty of time to rest up and, hopefully, get cured, before I head back again. All that aside, I have for you a new page of 'Owl and Fish-man'. The inking is not of the highest calibre but, as I mentioned, I'm exhausted. So, have yourself a good end to the week and I'll do the same. Enjoy a good weekend while I will be undoubtedly sleeping and I shall see you back on Tuesday for another new page of 'Owl and Fish-man'! Cheers!"

     "Hello everyone! I hope you all had a good weekend! Mine was great. I feel awful sore and tired but I got to go out, see my friends and even had some time to get some art done. Speaking of, here is a new page of 'Owl and Fish-man'! I hope everyone is enjoying the new series as I am still having a ton of fun working at it! Now, I just want to give everyone a heads up concerning 'Voiceless Songs'. I'm quite eager to finish the story as I do quite enjoy it! However, I've reached a point in which I have to choose between finishing the story or continuing colouring it the way it is and probably never finish... You see, in order to get each of the pages done to the quality they are now, I'm usually looking at a good six hours start to finish. Time I just don't have and energy I really don't have. All this means though is that I may be relying on a slightly different colouring method soon. So I'll be letting you all know what I decide soon and you may be seeing a slight change in its style in coming days. But worry not! I will finish it! Well, I'm off to get a bit of rest in. Have a good week and I will see you Thursday! Cheers!"

     "Hello everyone. It would appear I am in for one of those complicated weeks. I just heard from my University concerning Academic Probation. Seems when I withdrew from my classes at Durham College to switch to Trent University the filing got messed up. So, now it's in their records that I failed the Durham classes, not withdrew from them. And to make things more complicated, I'm still in a ton of pain from my side... well, they contacted me this morning about the specialist appointment I have been waiting on. The soonest appointment they have is November 26th. So... yeah... Like I said, a complicated week. Nothing I can't handle just... unexpected is all.

     "Hello everyone! I'm back and almost on track! Unfortunately, there will not be a new page of 'Owl and Fish-man' this week... instead there will be a small post today and another on Thursday. However, this will allow for some fantastic new updates to 'Owl and Fish-man' next week on the 1st of November! So, although there will be no new page today, I do have a small update to my Artwork section! I'd been meaning to update this sooner but just never had the chance. Well, do have a good start to your week and I deeply apologize for the further delay... but check back Thursday for another small update and then again next week for the dynamic return of 'Owl and Fish-man'! Cheers!"

     "Hello everyone. Well, I'm going to say it straight. Monday, for the most part, sucked. Not my best day ever. (Mind you there was a certain someone who always makes my days brighter). However, as such, I'm still working to catch up and get my week back on track. What this means is... (and I am very sorry to say this) there will be no 'Owl and Fish-man' yet again this week. *sigh* I do have a way to make it up to you all though! I promise a special addition to make up for my ridiculously long absences and delays but making 'Owl and Fish-man' fully coloured! Again, I apologize for my drastic delays but I hope you will all forgive me and keep on coming back. Until next Tuesday, have an excellent week and take care! Cheers!"

     "Hello everyone! Okay, I am finally back! And with me, I have brought a new page of 'Owl and Fish-man' so check it out! I hope you all like the changes that are being made to 'Owl and Fish-man' so please, feel free to e-mail me and tell me what you think! Thank you all for the patience, I really appreciate it. I know my updating has been flakey at best this past while... but I promise more frequency now! Thank you all so much for sticking with me, it is greatly appreciated! It means a lot. On a side note, I have finally had my specialist appointment and am being sent for the final test to help determine what the pain in my side is. So, in the coming weeks, I will know a lot more about this pain and, with any luck, know what they can do to fix me up! So thank you all! Between the incredible e-mails I have gotten encouraging me to get better, and my vastly supportive friends, family and amazing girlfriend, I am well on my way to better health! So now I am back on track with school, with the site and with my health! Once again, thanks for sticking around! Well, with all that said, enjoy today's bright page and I'll see you again on Thursday for yet another edition of 'Owl and Fish-man'! Cheers!"

     "Hello everyone! All seems to be going well so far! Regular updates and a steady work load. Plus, I had my final test to determine what is wrong with my side! So, come the start of next week, I should know more about what is causing this pain. So, as I said, here is another new page of 'Owl and Fish-man'! I hope you are all enjoying this new 'storybook' style set up and the pages being in full color! Again, any feedback is greatly appreciated! Thanks again to all of you who stuck with me and are still coming back for more here at TIME FOR SLEEP! I'm doing better so, for the time being, there shouldn't be any more huge delays. So thanks again for all of your support! I've been getting in some play lately on 'Final Fantasy XI', 'Stella Deus' and am eagerly awaiting the release of 'Dragon Quest VIII' (especially since it comes with a demo for 'Final Fantasy XII')! My weekend was pretty busy but I got to spend a ton of time with my amazing girlfriend so, in short: Best. Weekend. Ever. Well, I'm off to get some readings done for class. Coming up on crunch time!
I hope you all have a great start to your week and I will see you again on Thursday! Cheers!"

     "Hello everyone. First of all, I want to apologize to everyone. I have some good news and some bad news. How's about we deal with the bad news first? As you all know, recently I have been having health issues. But thanks to my amazingly supportive family, friends, and dearest love, as well as all of my faithful and encouraging readers, I have been able to pull through things relatively well. However, in recent days, my health as well as some very difficult personal matters and a very personal loss have become more than I can presently handle. Unfortunately, what this means is that, for the time being, there will be no posting from me on this site. I do not plan to prolong this for longer than I have to. Expect to see me back here with new comics and in a much better standing come the start of the new year. So you all know, I am not leaving you, and I apologize for all of this but I need some time... I love you all and I will see you again on January 3rd 2006. The first Tuesday of 2006. Again, I am sorry and I hope you can all forgive my absence. I appreciate all of your kindness, support and understanding. As for the good news? I would not want to leave you all empty handed. You have all been so fantastic, so supportive and kind and patient... It means the world. So, for you all, I have updated the full remaining chapter of the 'Owl and Fish-man' special! I am sorry I cannot do more for you all now... and I hope you all like it. Please send me any comments and questions that you might have (though I can't promise a reply, I will promise that all your e-mails will be read and appreciated). Anyways, I appreciate everything so very much and it pains me to leave like this now... but for now, it is what I must do. I am sorry, and just know that I won't be gone forever. I will be back in the new year. Until then, take care of yourselves and I wish you all the best and all the world can give. Cheers!"
