My Christmas

I love love LOVE decorating for Christmas. Really sad I don't have my own house,
but I did the most I could in my apartment's living room this year.
When I get a house, you can bet that I will WRECK it every holiday season.

Then Santa came a li'l early (it's me, I'm Santa; only 3 of those presidents under there were for me orz)
Tree 3 by Kurumi-Lover

The old sushi restaurant I used to work at even called me up and asked me to come out and set up and decorate their tree for Christmas as well! Here's what I ended up whipping up:

Funimation Holiday Party

I celebrated my 3rd Funimation Holiday this year, and this one was a lot more fun than the last two.
I was also gambling most of the time at the roulette tables, so that might also be why.
It was a masquerade themed party, but my stupid self obviously missed the memo.
Subtitlers by Kurumi-LoverSubtitler 2 by Kurumi-Lover
(you'll probably realize here that the beard I decided to grow is really making me look less half-Asian than I already did 1: Thanks, white half!)

The party also had karaoke, and I was the first person to sing due to peer pressure from my fellow subtitlers.
What did I sing? Cha-la Head Cha-la. What else would it be? Our company brought it over, after all!
I won 2nd place because it turned out to be a karaoke contest, but since the winner was an executive, he gave me the prize, my very own karaoke machine. Whoo! Also, pretty honored anyone would think I sing well????

I also finally rearranged my office both at work and at home, and will have a journal about my home office at some point in the future as well as it's now a mancave as well, WHOO!

I'm glad that I'm finally making my comeback to this site and am both talking to people again irl as well as online again.
You can bet you'll be hearing more dumb stuff from me as the days come.

I hope you guys had fun looking through dumb pictures, and hopefully we can spend another year together, talking at each other via the interwebs.

Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART


To my commissioners and people keeping up with my art in general--thank you so much for being patient with me! I wasn't able to update on it, but I got swept into overtime at work and haven't been able to draw at all for a bit, only stopping by every once in a while here. I should be back either this week or next with art. I'm very sorry!
ALSO: I totally didn't realize that I forgot to schedule art to go up past where it ended (all that was scheduled last year since all that art's been done since like 2016/early 2017 lol) so I'll have to get back on that. Sorry for the abrupt lack in "weekly" art, but it should be (hopefully) returning this Wednesday on if I can remember to schedule it all orz
"Hey, Jon, where you been?"
Well, a couple weeks ago, I hardcore injured a finger on my left hand where I jammed said finger and had the nail halfway ripped off, and was trying to recover from that when a (it's a long story, don't ask) magnet from my fridge went between the nail and skin of my pointer finger on my right hand, and so I've basically been effed since then, but I'll be back soon lol. Pretending I was Shion Sonozaki made it all more bearable though. SATOSHI PAT MY HEAD
Apologies for the short disappearance since late last week; I injured one of my fingers on Saturday in an epic tale of failure, and haven't really been able to draw or anything since due to pain. Of course, I still have my scheduler going with art uploads, so there will be still "regular" uploads of old art/finished commissions, but I should be back to making new art either tonight or tomorrow. <:

Hello. You take commissions at this time? I can't find out if you're open or closed.
