Hello guys! After getting back home from the holidays I've been working hard to bring some much needed updates to just about everything! So, here's a post to let you know what all has changed!



Zen Nexus:

Homepage

  • Social Icons Relocated and Updated - This was a small quality of life change but I find it looks and functions much better than having them in the banner.

Mobile Site - [Edit 1/10/2020]

  • Quick Action Bar Added - Now you can quickly access my Email, Patreon, Twitter, Telegram (art channel), and Chat from any page using the menu located in the bottom, right hand corner.
