First of all - a name change! For many reasons, one of which was to link my DA to my tumblr
more easily. But also because 'kanja' is an honorific for a skilled weapons master in my made up dark elf language and I always felt kind strange having it as a username. Literally no one else in the world would see it as an oddity, but it bothered me anyway.
I'm doing lots of sketch scribbles at the moment, and am enjoying challenging myself and finding (ever-more simple) new ways to colour sketches. Through mostly sheer coincidence, I've been taking suggestions of things to sketch, but as I've been enjoying it a lot, I'd like to more broadly invite people to make suggestions of things for me to draw. Either in a comment here or elsewhere, or in my tumblr ask box
if you prefer, you are welcome to make suggestions! I'm open to trying lots of different things, but would prefer suggestions of things I vaguely have an interest in. No OCs please, but otherwise go crazy. As may be obvious from my gallery, I'm having a Mortal Kombat obsession at the minute, so anything related to that is fine, but I like many other things too, so feel free to ask and I may or may not give drawing it a shot
I'm going to make a poll too, because I'm not even sure if anyone reads journals anymore (guilty party over here :/ )
In other news...
Just got back from an rail trip to Slovenia and Venice via Munich and Paris

Ska fans who like it political and 80s sounding, please go check out The Selecter's Celebrate the Bullet
. It's not very well known but is beautifully dour and needs to be played at full volume aye especiallyinthesedarkdays.
any dear MK people reading this, if you have a lot of time to waste, you might like my crazed side blog
full of texts from Sub-Zero.
This is definitely not a list of recent things any more so I'm just gonna stop.
o one more thing. I was hiding this because I'm weird like that, but I actually made a redbubble store
so that a family member could have access to a print they liked. I put one or two other things up there and now someone in the world is walking round with my HK-47 on a tshirt which is kinda weird to think of but I thought I'd casually let you deviant people know in case you wanna join in the crazy. If for some reason you want them - you can go get some random prints of my art on some random stuff (and I mean random like - Gallifrey on a mug and nothing else because I still havent had time to re-scan the large version of that ancient painting, or a punk on a cushion, or Morgoth and Sauron on a pencil case. I told you it was random.)
