Hey guys! Decided to finally make an update here to let you all know I'm still here and to give some updates.
Firstly sorry I've been MIA for so long....there has just been a lot of things that have kept me away from my art and social media for a bit. There has been a lot of tension and drama at my job for several long months and it has left me feeling mentally drained (I am looking for something new but its a slow process). Had a hard time getting inspired to work on my art for awhile. On top of all that my sciatica relapsed again so that was another thing bringing me down.
But now for some happier news! Another thing that's kept me busy for the last few months is wedding planning. I got engaged back in January on new years and we are getting married this labor day weekend! Less than one month away now and I'm rushing to get things done. So things might be a bit slow for one more month on here just until I get past the wedding then Ill be diving back into art full-time again.
Ive been getting in shape and getting stronger which has helped my back and left me feeling more optimistic for the future and dedicated to getting back to my art. I've slowly been working through a great figure drawing book and will be starting online art classes in October after the wedding is all behind me to help to continually improve my skill.
I've got a lot of projects planned to jump into this year and more individual art pieces that I cant wait to tackle.
- Bride of the Wolf God Issue One
This is a graphic novel that my soon to be husband is currently writing and I will be illustrating. Hoping to have the first issue of it out sometime early next year.
-One secret project that I hope to be announcing in the next few months
-Starting on my own first story...this will be slow going for awhile because I have other projects I want to tackle first but something I am eager to get started on as well.
-Many new illustrations that have been bouncing around in my head
Now onto Conventions.... I decided to take a break from a lot of the summer ones this year since I knew I would have a lot on my plate with the wedding and I am glad I did because I needed some personal time to recharge. I also will not be attending SacAnime Summer because its on the very weekend that we are getting married up in Washington. But I will be at SacCon at the end of October and possible a small little con known as Creative Women Mini-Con that takes place at a local comic book shop here in Sacramento. I have applied for it but am still waiting to find out if I got in, so I will be sure to update you when I find out.
I also plan to return to SacAnime in January so stay tuned for updates on that as well.
Also one last exciting bit of news!! I get a new shiny to make beautifus new art on for all of you!! My very own Wacom Cintiq Companion!!! Now I can draw right on the screen I'm looking at and take it with me on the go wherever I want.......!!!!
Anywho...Hope you are all doing well and more stuff to come soon...just please be patient with me...stuff is coming I promise!!
