I'm sorry for being so inactive on DA. For some reason the last couple years I prefer posting WIPs on Instagram, and more recent digital works on Redbubble. I'll get at least some of the new ones up on DA too so everyone can enjoy them. <3 Haha, famous last words. >___<
So far I'm doing well, just busy as usual. Dealing with some extended family upheaval, and it doesn't bode well for long term. That has partially drained me energy and inspiration wise, but its gradually getting better. I'm better at accepting that this is the new normal, and still working on moving on. Conflict shows where the weaknesses are, and how to get stronger for the long haul.
Gallery wise, I've taken a few original country landscape paintings to be sold. The gallery owner gave her input of the kinds of works she would like to see in future, and also some additional "artist homework" to do. Writing for art stuff has been difficult for me. Especially Art Bios and Artist Statements. Why can't I say it's just something that "makes me happy" and done with it? >_< BLAH!!!!! Anyway, I'm going to do a watercolor demo at the gallery on the 27th for an open house, and the small town that advertises area artists wants to advertise me too. Weeee~~~
Redbubble wise, So far I've made 2 sales, which is pretty amazing considering me and online sales success has been pretty much zero. Granted, it's the same image...so I'm taking the hint to make more dog's in space.
Got any favorite breeds of dogs you'd like to see? Let me know!
It's the kind of April fools joke, where it's actually 100% true: I am going to be a guest artist at Animeiowa 2019.
I never really dreamed about being a guest at a convention, but I guess there's a first time for everything! I wish I was a little more famous tho for the honor, but hey, I'll roll with it.
I'm still trying to figure out the issues of what kind of panels I can host. So far I have it narrowed down to "How to draw faster", "Art Jam", and an Artist Shenanigans panel with two of my favorite art buddies
. If you guys have any suggestions on the kinds of panels you'd like to see from me, please let me know.
Soooo yeah! If you're going to AI this year, You'll see me around.
Hope all of you are staying well, and are creating many beautiful pictures of your own!
