Journal Entry: Tue Sep 1, 2015, 10:23 AM

I've just had some big news, regarding my US visa application - it turns out that I've actually been able to go ahead with the application since July, but due to lack of communication I didn't find out until today, which means I could've had my medical and visa interview done last month. Despite that, I've now completed my visa application, and while I wait for them to give me a date and time for my interview I'll be booking my medical.

The ball is well and truly rolling now - I'll be sure to update you all once I know more. :thumbsup:

UPDATE 02/09: I've booked the medical, the not so good news is that I have to travel to London for it, but the good news is that it's as soon as next week.

Trades? Commissions? Note me. :)

Hey man! Just wanna know, do you usually start making the Snow Sam comics around November or December? :meow: 
BluebottleFlyer Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I upload them at the end of November, and I used to sketch them out in October/November, but this year I've been getting them ready since June.
