sorry i've been MIA for so long, you guys! i don't mean to be so neglectful- and i couldn't for the life of me ever take your love for granted. i'm constantly surprised by how much attention my dA gets.

but anyway, school's started and i've been moving into my new apartment (yay!) and working on commissions- so, in short, it's been busy. but you know what? the next time i can get to a scanner, my first order of business is going to be to upload a new page for Junk of the Heart.

because i need to follow through with the things i commit to.

EDIT: alright, that was quick, but i have to close commissions for now! hopefully, i'll be able to take mroe soon!

since Etsy fell through for me recently, i decided to get my hands dirty and go back to what i used to do- taking commissions! these are going to be simpler than what i've done in the past, more focused.

i'll ask just a few things of you, if you'd like to order a drawing from me.
(if i've missed anything crucial, please let me know in a comment or email!)

-please know what you want before sending me a request.
-please be able to pay.
-email me at bvaughn@udallas.edu with your detailed order! NOT here on dA!
-remember: i typically draw in pencil and pen, traditional materials.
-all pieces will be completed on 8x12, acid-free sketchbook paper.
-i'd prefer to be paid through paypal.
-i will begin your drawing as soon as it's paid for.
-oh, and try to be patient with me! i'll be swamped with sorting through orders and completing and packaging them. more complicated pieces WILL take a longer amount of time to complete and ship!
speaking of shipping/packaging: as a standard, i always slip your order into a transparent slip to protect it from water damage. i also place a piece of cardboard in the envelope, in order to protect the paper from folding or bending.
-the cost of insuring and shipping is not included in these prices! we can discuss the details of that when information is being exchanged through email. it can be paid at a later date.

-one character bust in pencil- $12

go together by burdge

WELP. i'm prepared for the craziness that is about to flood into my email... i will close commissions when i believe i've taken as many orders as i can handle. this means i'll be open for A LIMITED TIME.

and if i can complete them all in good time, perhaps i'll open up commissions again this summer! thanks for your time! <3

i discovered (through the brilliant alicexz) a new website to sell my drawings! of course, they won't be the original hard copies, but now you can purchase prints that aren't available here! c:

i'll be adding more soon, i think. any suggestions for pieces you'd like to see at my shop?

have a look and let me know!---> society6.com/Burdge

there's something really fantastic about the fact that people still come to my page on here,
still favorite my work,
still comment on drawings i've posted,
(not to mention, drawings i posted years ago)
and are just generally the sweetest fans a girl like me couldn't even begin to hope for.

i really wish i had the time to answer you all...
it sounds so insincere- but thank you.

very soon, i'll post more Blosper.
partly because i feel so guilty for dropping the ball on that comic, and because i miss drawing them.

welp. i know it's been a while, and my inactivity isn't on purpose. i swear.
school has steadily gotten more and more stressful for me, so i hope you'll excuse me.
as usual, my art classes like to eat up my time. so i've just been posting a lot of
sketches and silliness on my blog over on tumblr.

i'm sorry, guys. this summer, i'm gonna show dA a ton of love to make up for my absence lately. <3

today has been the best day.

why:
i went to my Independent Research: Drawing class, which i signed up for late. so i didn't know quite what to expect, having not been to class yet. the only thing my professor told me to bring to class was a drawing i'd worked on or completed lately...

do you realize how vague that is? my mind went into overdrive. should i bring a large one that was more conceptual? should i grab a still-life? a comic? i was losing it. but then my dad, who is good friend with my professor, having been a grad student under his teaching, tells me to show my professor what i LIKE to do.

thus, i take the Hunger Games drawing i've been coloring, and a completed Blaire design.
i was so embarrassed when i showed him my cartoons, that i started rambling about how i'd like to go into animation, and he stops me. he asks me what materials i need to do that. i kinda freeze, cause i wasn't anticipating that at all. but then i spit out that i hadn't thought about anything specific yet. you see, my university has no digital art program. AT ALL.

i got my Mac, he gave me some mylar to cut and showed me a light table, told me to look up more about animation cels online, and to get to work on experimenting. he specializes in printmaking, but i could care less that he didn't have a background in animation...

because i'm finally going to be animating.

let me type that again.

ANIMATION. I'LL BE ANIMATING. TRADITIONALLY. THIS SEMESTER.

I HAVEN'T BEEN THIS EXCITED ABOUT SOMETHING SINCE- SINCE LIKE-
SINCE THE DAY I FOUND OUT I WAS GOING TO ROME.

i'm spread pretty thin right now, still trying to gather up my thoughts about this past semester and taking care of all the baggage that comes along with being home. i started sorting through the messages i have, and they avalanched. it wasn't pretty.

so i apologize for the inactivity. i won't abandon dA, don't worry.
i'm just... unmotivated, i guess. chalk it up to rome-sickness.
i'll get up a Junk of the Heart up really soon. c:

in the meantime, i'll still post sketches and scraps on my blog. i never stop drawing, so it's a good place for me to dump nonsense that doesn't belong in my galleries here.

kay so, i'll begin with thanking you guys, like always, for all the messages and support you send me. :heart:
i desperately wish i could answer you all, and i try every now and then. but i haven't had internet all weekend, and i barely get it during the week, which might be characteristic of all my free time...

Junk of the Heart news!
i couldn't be more grateful for all the interested and excited messages i've received from you all about the comic! i still get so overwhelmed when i see what a warm reception Blaire and Prosper have gotten in the first place. so thank you for that!

but i have some unfortunate news. to my watchers who are waiting for the comic, you'll have to wait just a teensy bit more. i just don't have the resources here on campus to get the pages online. i scoured the place, and it just wont work until December, when i arrive back home in the States.

the good part though, is that i'll still be drawing and inking the pages in ANY of my spare time! so when i finally can update, it will be very consistent, i can guarantee you that.

soooo, i'm updating my Etsy at the moment.

the next time i post new drawings up for sale will be when i'm in Rome, and it will be A LOT slower. the updates AS WELL as getting them sent out. i don't even know how i'll find time to package and ship them... but i'll keep it going, i promise. c:


in other news,
do you guys think i should make an entirely different dA account for the Blosper comic?
or figure out my own webpage for it?

the latter will probably take more time, and i was planning for the first page to come out in September... what do you think?

i've been very productive this weekend. yesterday, i went to Borders (BLOWOUT SALE OMG) and bought a load of Neil Gaiman books and Batman comics. THE KILLING JOKE OMG ALAN MOORE FTW. today, i helped paint and caulk my porch, i managed to sketch and color for a bit, discovered what the hell Homestuck is, and painted my nails.

overall, i feel good.

to continue being productive, i decided to warn you guys in advance that i will be updating my Etsy Shop tomorrow. and i'll be posting A LOT. i'm leaving for Rome on the 23rd and wont be able to update again for a little, so i'm really gonna try to get all the major stuff sold.

for those that aren't in the USA, i'll be putting up art on the 7th in the afternoon CST- Central Time.
(wow, i was just checking world time zones, it's like, the very early hours of the morning in Europe right now. which means... it's already the 7th for you guys. whut. 8|)

BY THE WAY,
i've been out of town this past week and just got back home to my supplies and scanner, so i apologize to the people who have been waiting on their orders on Etsy, or even waiting for me to update my shop. i'll be shipping the completed orders out tomorrow, as well as updating my shop with new pieces.

edit: Updating again! for those that wanted a heads-up. c:


for the past... man, i don't even know at this point, i'll guess a few hours have gone by since i've sat down to work.

anyway, for these past few hours, i've been sorting through my folders of the drawings i'm selling. and i don't mean on the computer, i'm talking piles around me, sitting on the floor, sorting originals one by one into SOLD, ON ETSY, or NOT ONLINE YET folders... but i did it online as well, alongside the hard copies' process.

i'm actually getting a little sentimental about some recent ones that i'm selling...

LE BIG SIGH

long story short; i'm updating my Etsy shop as we speak. putting on new and old alike. cause let's be honest, summer's ending soon. and i don't have nearly enough money raised for my semester in Rome.
TIME TO GET CRACKIN'.

my shop: www.etsy.com/shop/bvaughn91?re…

PS. i forgot to say... some of the art i'm posting in my shop is completely new. i haven't posted them anywhere else on the internet. c:

HERE'S THE PLAN.

i post the drawings i've decided to sell on Etsy.com.

they will be original, hard copies.

i'm starting with my oldest, and perhaps scrappiest, and working my way to the present.

there are hundreds. 8C

anyone is allowed to purchase, no matter where it will be shipped to.
(i'm having some confusion about the shipping prices, but that'll be figured out soon.) all sorted!

all the rest of the information is posted on Etsy.

here's my profile: www.etsy.com/shop/bvaughn91?re…

i'm only just now posting them, so it may be a while before i
can really fill my shop.
