So, it has been a LOOOOONG time since I have updated or posted anything.  I am not much of a blogger, but I should keep up so I can remember things.  However, since it has been less than a year since my last post, I don't feel SO horrible.

What's been up in my world as of this past almost year?  Lots of things actually!

1) I made a page on facebook and you can check it out here: http://www.facebook.com/RyavenDesignCo  I try to post on there for updates and stuff too, but eh.....I'll make an effort :)

2) I have also joined a group called "Batman's Asylum".  It is a DC/Batman cosplay group located in the Pittsburgh area.  Our goal is to travel around to conventions and other events to promote different organizations as well as ourselves: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Batmans-Asylum/206466832720676

3) I am SUPER EXCITED to be involved with my friends here in Monessen.  I'm helping with a film called Captain Happy Sun.  It's basically a kid's show on acid (think of combining Wondershowsen with The Mighty Boosh) http://www.facebook.com/pages/Captain-Happy-Sun-Film-Page/139705156092020.  I wish all of them the best in getting things finished and am so glad to be a part of this :)

4) I HAVE GRADUATED TWICE IN 4 MONTHS!!!!  I graduated from the Tom Savini Special Makeup Effects program on January 31 with an Associate in Specialized Business degree.  I also graduated this past Tuesday (May 24th) from the Dorian Cleavenger Fantasy Art Program with a diploma :).  So yeah, two degrees and a diploma under my belt, how's that?

Now to find a job....

Quite personally, I would love it if I could find a job in Illustration, doing the makeup effects for independent productions like the one i am working on now, or....my really big desire, to work for and eventually own a toy company.  I really want to work on making figurines and articulated figures, like ball jointed dolls.

Gotta go and work on that stuff :D. 

I'll update when more fun stuff happens!
