Going to SoCal

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 17, 2018, 12:49 PM




Hey, guys!

Recently, I came back from southern California to visit my older sister for my niece's graduation. Well, I'll be going back to live with them and the rest of their family this summer as an effort to become more independent and self reliant, since I don't feel like I'm being challenged enough at home. I'll be looking more actively for a job over there, learn how to drive, balance my money better, all of it. My older sister is much harder than my mom (in a good way), which I honestly fully welcome, hence why I'll be going over there. It'll certainly be a nice change of pace from the normal routine and environment.

My younger sister, scribblywobbly, will be loaning me her laptop, so I'll still be able to access my account when I need to as well as work on commissions. The rest of the time, I'll be working on bettering myself. Not just my independence but my self confidence as well. I'll be leaving this Thursday at the buttcrack of dawn, so that'll be fun. :XD:

Until then, Happy Father's Day!

Commissions Open + New Business Email

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 11, 2018, 7:53 PM




Hey, guys!

I just got back from a short trip to Southern California to visit family a couple nights ago, and I'm feeling really out of it at the moment, but I'm gonna open up commissions again and just kinda keep it casual. I'm also trying to figure something out for a YCH auction I want to try for FurAffinity, but until I get that pinned down I'm gonna need to open up commission for some supplemental income. As always, available slots and info are on my Trello page:
trello.com/b/9dThbm1o/commissi…

Along with that, I also now have a new business email: earthgweearts@gmail.com. That's where I'm gonna be carrying out correspondence from now on and it's also my new Paypal email. So, yay! No more asking for or searching for people's emails! Honestly, I don't know why I hadn't done this sooner. Just goes to show how stubborn I am with how I do business. So, if you want a commission or have any questions that's where you can reach me. 

I think more than anything, I'm just getting tired of doing artwork for money. That's really why I've had this battle with myself and my ability to work willingly and happily. It's not as fun as it used to be, but I still have no job, so I'm facing this dilemma of needing income and not wanting my art to be my job. But until I actually do get a job I'm gonna have to keep using my art as a means for income. Eventually, I want to have enough income where I can just do the artwork I want and use my Ko-fi account for people to support me that way if they'd like to. The kind of artwork I want to do for myself is without question the most fun to do and it's made better when others like it too. But for now I'm gonna keep sticking it out until I'm more financially independent.

Thank you guys for all the birthday messages! I had a nice day out with my sister and niece, watched a movie and went out to dinner at a good pasta restaurant. 

I also had an urge to draw an old character I have found some new nostalgic love for, so you'll see that in just a bit. After that, I'm back at commissions.
As an aside, I finished another short comic dub for Dub Matters:

Hope you guys like!
I have begun work on commissions, but I'm also still adjusting to my new living situation. On top of that, I'm having to get used to drawing on my sister's much smaller laptop with a huge ass tablet. But I'll get there. I feel more focused on getting things done than I have for a long time. It's just a matter of keeping that focus up and consistent.
Well, I didn't think I'd be compelled to ask, but I'm wondering if any Pokemon fans out there have a Rockruff with the ability Own Tempo to trade. I completely missed out on the event from the end of last year.
I've been forgetting to let people know, but I finally got all my commissions on this batch done. After four months with procrastination. I'll be opening them up again on Monday with less slots this time and a more streamlined way of doing it. In the meantime, I'll be working on a resume or two and submitting job applications.

I'll be starting up streams on my Picarto channel again after such a long time. So, I have a few time suggestions, all of which fall under MST (Mountain Standard Time) in Arizona. What would be the most convenient for you guys?
