Where in the World are My Visitors From?

It's been ages since I last updated this journal, over a year in fact. I haven't shared as much of my work this year as I had liked but I'm fully at work on my projects. I'd still like to get a Garwara series overview guide published but I have a need to add more and to refine things. This can be time consuming. For the longest time, most of the series thirty-year history, most of the story involved either the Garwara (CM) vs. Kogasuma or inner Garwara (CM) conflicts. I have been, as of late, interested in creating a third faction within this universe, a more shadowy group that would add an new dynamic to the overall series. With this third faction I have begun some character designs but as of now the group is incomplete. When more is ready I'll share them.

I'm also working on some slight updates to my long running characters as well as designing vehicles within this universe. Those too will be share once complete. I just have to make sure everything balances out. The vehicle designs are something I'm a little rusty on but fun nevertheless.

This past year I had a few pieces commissioned from :iconfooray:, my characters JC Fox, Gen. Fuji, Tetisu, and Valerie Fox:

Fooray does amazing work, highly recommended. Also, please check out, he and :iconthechamba: do a cool show ChipperChapChat,

My friend :iconmikehegaman: drew this piece last year of my character Jack Yakama. Awesome!

This past spring I was fortunate enough to visit several European nations for about two weeks. I visited Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Russia, Estonia, Germany, and France.

It is great to visit all these countries, they are all beautiful. It's always great to talk to people from all over the world and to even visit some of their countries is a blast.

Greetings! The vast majority of my work is for my "Garwara CM" series, a ninja/ martial arts realm I created in 1986. The series is about the conflicts between members of the Garwara (Commando Massacres), Kogasuma, Agasuma, and other major clans. Please explore further for more details involving storylines and the characters. All presented materials of existing characters of the Garwara CM universe may not be reproduced, printed, or transmitted without the express written consent of the Copyright (and where appropriate Trademark) holder Jesse Nightingale.
