1/8/19 A New Year, Same Old Goals
Happy new year my lovelies! I honestly miss being able to post art and journal entries more often and really try to engage with you guys more, but it seems I am just working all the time these days; forever in a cycle of making just enough money to pay the bills. I guess that's life! I was able to look back on 2018 and I realized that I hadn't made any new art. I mostly just did studies, sketches, and inktober. I haven't done any detailed, large scale illustrations, so I want to change that for 2019. I work five days a week now; three at Panera, and two doing private art lessons which only leaves me two days a week for personal art (and commissions). That's really rough! I always feel this crushing sense of 'there's not enough time in the day.'

The only way I can achieve my personal art goals and get commissions done is to actually schedule in time for specific projects, including my 'Shadows of Etherea' comic. Life is a juggle it seems. I can't sacrifice my barista and teaching jobs because I need that income, so it's going to be a hard road to becoming a fulltime artist... it always has been, but that's still my long-term goal. I will do my best to finish more of my fantasy illustrations and fanarts, get at least a chapter of Etherea done, and hopefully by 2020 have enough work to publish my first art book. Time to bust out the calendar and schedule away!
