a winter in France - long due blogpostI spent the past few days organizing the six rolls of films I brought with me from my stay as an au pair in France earlier this year. It took me a long time, but I have finally put them all together in one post along with thoughts and writings and explanations, and most of all a lot of feelings.a winter in France - long due blogpost4 years ago in Personal More Like This
END OF NOVEMBER 2010 - MIDDLE OF APRIL 2011
"When something begins, you generally have no idea how it's going to end."
- Meredith Grey
I remember one day when I had just arrived, I went into town together with my host mum
and had to wait for her while she had an appointment. I went into a café, had a coffee,
wrote into my notebook and tried to grasp that new, entirely french world around me.
I thought I could be doing that more often if I ever felt like I didn't know what to do because
my thoughts were chasing after me. The atmosphere in cafés is just so different from

Heads up, colorists!
First off, I've got your messages about deviantArt's policy violations team taking down your colored work citing permission issues. Unfortunately, I do not have any jurisdiction over the actions or policies of the PVA team, so I cannot do a whole lot on my end to change any existing policies they may be enforcing. However, I have sent an inquiry to the deviantArt admins requesting any advice or avenues we as a club can follow to ensure our own collaborative efforts fall within deviantArt's policies. I'll keep you all posted with any information they can provide.

(If you want to price your art cheaply, frame it as a 'sale' off the 'original price'. The reception will generally be much better than simply pricing your work cheaply from the get-go. [See also: the infamous JC Penny fiasco])
If you're selling your art for peanuts and STILL have a hard time making sales, the harsh reality comes down to you possibly needing to do one or both of the following:
-Take some time to improve your craft/skillsets. You do not need post secondary school for this (in fact, there are plenty of BFA owners who appear to h
