Hey everyone. It's been FOREVER since I've updated here and I apologize. I've been a very busy boy.. err, man..boy. A busy manboy. I just turned 21! But yeah, I've been busy throwing a ton of stuff together for school, updating azuzephre.net, and working on a kind of secret project that's kind of a big deal. I'm not sure when I'll be allowed to talk about it, but within the next year, I'll making an exciting announcement.

First, juicy gossip. I'm single once again, and for the first time since the dawn of puberty, I have no desire whatsoever to seek out someone new to date. It's not even because the breakup still hurts, either, because I'm not even sure if it hurts anymore. While having somebody to cuddle with is sort of nice, the entire situation is always terribly draining. I'm not saying that I'll never date again, but I'm not going to stress myself out looking for someone that might end up working out if I try really hard. For now anyway, I'm doing great by myself. Onto other news, I quit my job at the coffee shop after working there for two years. The shop at azuzephre.net is what feeds me now, and it's kind of a scary thing because the flow of orders is rather inconsistent. I'm learning how to budget and plan ahead though. Unfortunately, however, part of this journal will be devoted to promotion of the shop. I don't want to annoy anyone, but I need to eat and pay my bills. Hahaha. So let's get that part out of the way. Brace yourself for the biggest most obnoxious link in the world.

img.photobucket.com/albums/v17…"  border="0" alt="Click here to enter shop" />


The last time I updated my journal, the shop at azuzephre.net wasn't even open, but it is now, stocked full of ComicPrints, ButtonPinPacks and Totebags! The comic prints are a lot bigger than they were when they were sold in the old version of the shop, which is nice because the last ones were a bit tiny. They're still only $3.00 each, too. The button pins come in packs of seven for seven dollars. That's a dollar each, less than half what places like Hot Topic charge for their pins, and psshhh. These are hella cuter too. Totebags are back with a better design. Each one comes with three FREE random button pins, too. STEAL. Hahaha. Anyway, take a look if you can. Payment is processed through PayPal, orders are shipped daily Monday through Saturday, and tracking numbers are provided along with the confirmation email.

<333

As far as new projects go, I'm crazy busy with my secret project, and I can't post any of the stuff involved with that yet. But since I work at home now, I have a lot more time to work and I'm learning how to get more done in a day. I'll try to post some assignments from school, and I have a ton of unposted PonComics that I might intermittently upload as well.

Does anybody know of any huge comic conventions coming up? I had a lot of fun meeting people at FanimeCon in San Jose and at AX her in Los Angeles, but I want to do more, especially if it means I'll have to travel. Hahaha. Someone at AX suggested a convention in London, but I forgot what it was called. Let me know, and let's get coffee together because I love you all. <333

It's 3:04am and I can't think of anything else important to type about. So on that note, I think I'll play some FFXII like the hardcore nerd that I am and then get some sleep.

Oh yeah! If you're a cool kid, you should follow me on Twitter! My sn there is also azuzephre.

You should go to anime boston or comic con in new york o3o <3<3<3 I think if you got a table and tried to sell stuff you'd make a pretty penny.

I think you're really cool, it's good to hear you're doing well after all the other depressing things that were in your older journals.

sorry to hear about your breakup, but glad to hear you enjoy single life. it's important to be content being by yourself.
it's great to hear also about your new independent job. hope everything goes well. wish i could buy your stuff, but when i'm not trying to save money, i'm actually short on cash (it's usually the latter, if i'm honest).
good to hear from you again. best of luck with your projects.

Grats Jeff, you're finnaly popular enough to live off of your popularity, now all there is to do is to get onto Oprah for your cute comics. - Oh I heard you hung out with Austin awhile ago? - Grats on being content with being single as well.

Pretty much the same; work, school, and socalizing. Only I haven't had much time for art in the meantime and thus my drawing skills are failing horribly as of late. To counterbalance that I started drawing at work when I was bored, but Wal*Mart doesn't leave much time for anything more serious than doodling.

I know of a con coming up here in Texas, it's a ways to travel, but then, I suppose, so is London so that's no big deal really. I think it's called Animefest or something like that. I won't be attending, but I here it's a lot like Akon, and therefore definitely worth trying to check out. I'm a big fan of your work, and I'm sure all the people here around Dallas and Fort Worth that attend the cons would LOVE to see the creator honor us with his presence.
