I hate saying New Year’s Resolutions because I tend to get all paranoid about them if I don’t succeed.  I’m weird like that.  So, for now I am making a list of my goals that I would like to accomplish, not only in the new year but in general.  They are in no particular order.

1) Go to Japan
2) Travel More
3) Attend a comic book convention ( SDCC/NYCC/SPX, etc)
4) Attend  convention and actually have a booth set up
5)  Animate more in flash
6) Update my comic more and devote more time to it
7) Update the comic layout
8 ) Get my portfolio site up
9) Apply for more graphics/animation jobs
10) Work on moving out of GA
11) Stop doubting myself and my artistic ability
12) More freelance work ( devoting more time to freelance work)
13) save more money
14) spend more time with friends
15)Re do my bathroom

I wanted to thank everyone who has visited the site since it has been up.  We made it past 500 page hits and I think that is freaking awesome!  Thank you all for your support and I hope we are around for 500 more hits.    I really do hope you guys are enjoying the strips so far.  I haven’t gotten very many comments so I’m unsure.  You should really leave a comment!  🙂

Hello everyone and welcome to the newcomers on the site.

I know a lot of people tend to shy away from the social networks like twitter and face book and that is usually where I post my updates to the site.  Well, I felt it was unfair to to the people who didn’t want to delve into social networking so I have made a mailing list.   Feel free to join!  You will be alerted when [Casually Kayla] has been updated!

Enter your name and email address below:

First off, I want to thank everyone who has given me support and have become a fan of my comic.  That really means a lot to me!  You guys are super awesomes!

I did, also, want to keep you guys updated on some things I am working on for the future.    So, I thought I would make this post.  Maybe I won’t delete it this time.
***The first thing I wanted to let you all know about is Holiday cards.  With Christmas/Chanukah/Kwanzaa/ winter festivals fast approaching, I think that instead of going to the store to buy Holiday cards and then ranting about why I’m so broke, I could make my own custom Casually Kayla Christmas cards.  Nothing too snazzy, maybe just a little post card to wish everyone Happy Holidays and all that.  Just an idea I had.

***I wanted to give the viewers a little treat when I reached enough hits on my website or happen to get a certain number of fans.  That means, a special piece of artwork posted on the site for when I reach some high numbers.  My first goal is to reach 500 pages views and/or get 20 fans.  When that happens, I will do a special piece of artwork.  A Kiriban, if you will.   So lets see how long it takes to reach that first milestone.

***I want to open Commissions soon, but I’m not sure if it will be just yet.  I want to make sure that everything at work has died down, as far as meetings, new procedures etc, etc.   So Keep an eye out for the Commission status on the side bar to see when I am open for business. A price list will also be posted on the site.  I will also post it in a blog, twitter, and whatever else is attached.

***Keep an eye out on the changing styles.  I want to experiment with different styles for this comic as I’m not really sure I am happy with the line-less style.  So you might see some comics that are black and white, or have hard black lines, etc.  I am just trying out different things and thought I might warn anyone who might get freaked out easily.

I think that is it as far as updates and things that should be coming soon.  I just wanted to give everyone a heads up and maybe dip my toe in the water to see what everyone thought about it.   This all is definitely some exciting news!! So keep your eyes peeled.

It’s official, I have been given the clearance to go tour Aflac Japan.  This just happens to correspond with the trip I wanted to take to Japan anyways.

I have always wanted to go, but I have always felt really selfish,  wanting to take a trip that took up so much money.  Money that could be used on other things, like fixing up our home or other things, you know.  But it has always been my dream to go.  I finally realized that I need to take some time to do things for myself and go because it might never happen.  Also, one only lives once, so do what you want before you die, right?  So I have set up a chipin widget:

Which, this is more for myself than anything to keep an eye on how much I have in savings to go.  I couldn’t find a chart to keep track of this — and everyone knows how much I love charts.  So this was the next best thing.  So, for awhile this will be on the side bar so I can keep an eye on myself and keep myself focused on my goals.
