I've moved accounts! Come devwatch me at

:icongabapple: -- woo!

This account will stay here as an archive. I'll occasionally check messages and stuff here, too, but all new art will be posted on the new account. Thanks so much for watching!
Hey everyone!

I've decided that on August 28th, 2010, I will switch to using :icongabapple: as my primary DA account. I'll make a more official announcement (with a drawing to commemorate) on the day, but you're more than welcome to watch me over there before then if you like. I'm hoping to get it all prettied up for the release date. ...which happens to be my birthday! Weird. :)

Anyway, thanks for everything, guys. I love love love the llamas and comments and favs and watches and shouts! It seriously makes my day every time.

So I dunno; what do you guys think? Is it annoying when people move accounts?

I love all of the art here on this one, and the comments and all of my watchers and everything, but I am really tired of being called "Gab Furry" -- it's Gab /FURY/ as in RAAAAAEEEGGGG. But maybe it doesn't matter all that much in the end, especially since I do draw quite a bit of the animals/anthro stuff. Hmmm!

Do you guys have any input? The name I would switch to is :icongabapple: - which happens to be what I go under in all of my new things, including my portfolio.

If I did switch, it'd be in the next month or so since my paid time is running out here... so it'd be good timing!

Dude, I'm loving the llamas. :) Thanks, guys! I feel so warm and fuzzy now.
I went to my first anime convention this last weekend (actually, I'm still there even though it's over) -- www.animefannatiku.com/ ! It was really fun and chill. Didn't meet Jimmy Kudo's voice actor (I guess he was out of the country), but I DID meet the fine people at :iconika-boushi:! I got a little Jimmy drawing done and it is so cute. *_*

So for my cons, this means I've been to

1 furry convention (furcon)
1 gaming expo (penny arcade)
1 writing conference (wfyr)
1 anime convention (fannatiku)

Happy times. 8) I wanna work on my anime drawing skills (among other things, of course!), in hopes that it will help me spread the love of Detective Conan/Case Closed!


I wonder what my next con will be?! :D

I'm digging this formspring thing, but hoping I can get some more questions. Feel free to ask anything -- I might just answer it. Bonus points for art/process questions. I'm hoping this will help me write material for the new Monster Ink Studios site. :)

Thanks, guys!

Streaming live (finally) at www.ustream.tv/channel/art-des… !

There's still one slot left, too! :)
I am opening up 10 icon slots at $15 each. They can be holiday themed, winter, or just whatever as long as they're rated PG13 and under. I prefer to do animal/furry but am happy to try most anything - just ask. :)

Assuming I get the 10 slots filled by midnight tonight (with payment accounted for), I will draw/color all of these icons tomorrow live on ustream starting at 12pm MST. Barring technical difficulties, they'll be finished by the evening!

Interested in a slot? Check my FA page www.furaffinity.net/user/gab/ for availability and either comment here or there. Once I've confirmed that you can have one, email payment and then references/descriptions and we're good!


*To those of you who are still waiting on other owed art: some of you will get a progress email tonight, some won't... either way, I'll be resuming normal commission work on Thursday. :) I'm also going to try to have a new progress chart site available by the end of the year to make it easier to see where we're at.

*Also, because I need the money for bills, the payment must be made via paypal immediately. Sorry for any inconveniences!

Oh yeah! And the icons will be drawn at 400x400, then scaled to whatever size you need it for... ie, 100x100 for lj, etc.
So Tu Publishing is a small, independent multicultural SFF press for children and YA books that needs your donations so it can become a reality! It's rad because Stacy Whitman is in charge and she is *awesome* - plus I think it will be based here in Utah! All good stuff.

Anyway, read more about it and consider tossing a couple of dollars their way by going to this link: www.kickstarter.com/projects/1… their kickstarter campaign is almost over and they are getting close! I really want to see this happen. :)

So, what do you say?
First, thanks for the input on the scraps. I'll start dropping stuff in there as I scan/draw it!

Secondly, the halloween pic I did is now available as a print. Thanks to those who requested it. Go here to buy: www.deviantart.com/print/89315…

You guys rock!
Do you guys upload to scraps? Do people even look at scraps? I've got tons of sketches and unfinished drawings and things, but I feel kind of like uploading to scraps is a waste. I may be totally mistaken, though. What do you think about them?
I finished one of my sketchbooks earlier this month and realized that I hadn't scanned/uploaded any of it. So this afternoon was spent doing just that. Here are all 120 of them posted at my lj: gab.livejournal.com/754119.htm…

Warning, they're not bandwidth friendly... and a lot of them are REALLY ugly! :)
Due to vet bills and so on, I'm taking on two commission slots to be completed on/by October first. For further details and to jump on the chance, please head over to my FA and sign up -- www.furaffinity.net/journal/95…

You may have to have an account to comment. Thank you!


All slots are filled - thank you!
Thanks for all of the support, guys. And a special thanks to :iconmarupa: for renewing my DA subscription. :) It looks like he's offering commissions currently, too, so you guys should go check him out.

New art soon, I promise. Gotta find my scanner... it's somewhere in the garage. Moving was such a pain!
Hey guys -

It's been a long time and updates have been far and few between. Although moving and changing job statuses have been a rough transition, I've started to secretly draw again. There's a large backlog of sketches and things that need to be posted (probably not here, but to my box or lj), but also some finished pieces that I'm working on... commissions and personal projects both.

I keep getting comments/favs on the Gaston picture, so I think I need to do a reprise or two to show my appreciation for the continued support! You guys are great. If it weren't for your helpful comments and enthusiasm, I probably wouldn't be working on things to post at all. :)

Anyway, I need to get back to work for the time being... Gotta come up with the cash to be a DA subscriber again some how! See you soon with art art art!
