~Hi, here's some random stuff about me and my art~
I started trying to do art in 8th grade, 5 years ago now, as a self-taught artist until 10th grade when I joined art classes in my school and where I began to thrive better with guidance. I have switched in the more recent years from anime and cartoon to a much more realistic style and I also have expanded my interests into stuff such as building stuff such as jewelry and sculptures and photography. I spend most of my time working on stuff for my art classes, which I don't usually post on here, but I do enjoy posting stuff on here as well. I also have been playing drums since 5th grade and have a forever love for cats. I hope you enjoy looking at my stuff!

Hey, sorry for not being super active on here recently but some big life updates have been happening over the course of about a 2 month period. 

1st. I am ready to apply to college which I will then know the results of for my top pick by December 15th which feels way too soon. Sort of feels weird since I still don't know if I can afford it and all since taxes were weird the year they are requiring me to send in but I have hope! I also feel weird since I just don't understand college stuff perfectly since no one really close to me in my family ever went and although two friends have been really helpful, they aren't comfortable talking about their entire financial situation (which I get but it does keep some things still confusing for me to learn about).
2nd. I have a job! I'm just part-time at Bath and Body Works for Seasonal Employment but considering the first job tends to be one of the hardest jobs to get I'm happy that after 3 months of searching I finally got one! I have worked there for two days so far and it's been good in all, some customers have been weird to approach since it's my job to at least check on you once when you visit yet some gets angry when you go up to them (like if you're uncomfortable I get it but being mean is a little much).
3rd. Weird update but where I live there is finally snow!! I was hopeful for a few more weeks of autumn since it's my second favorite season but winter is my favorite and I just feel happier at this time of year (which is the opposite of most people with Seasonal Depression and everything but I avoid the sun all the time so I don't get affected too much).
4th. I got a car! Not really exciting for me yet since I only have a permit but since my dad got a new one the old one that needs new tires desperately and a fix in the engine area for around $100 is now mine! (I may have mentioned it before in another journal but I am still happy that even if it doesn't get used by me right now I have a car I can either sell eventually for money for college or whatever OR I can use it as my first car and have a different amount of freedom. 
5th. I plan to upload more on here. Not really an update about the recent past but more about the recent future. I have been drawing a lot recently in the last 2 months but I have been lazy and have just taken photos on my phone for Instagram (little self-promotion---> www.instagram.com/jodi_shephar… ) and haven't bothered to send it to my laptop's email for me to upload here but I force myself to be less lazy and upload some more sketches an pieces for people on here.

Hey! I know it's been a while since I've more sat down and did a journal or real update on here so I felt like it would be good to do now. I hope everyone else is doing well!

The last bit of time has been weird for sure for me. I have officially stopped being a high school student, during this gap year I'm doing commissions for people around where I live, which has pushed me out of my comfort zone and I have enjoyed it, and some senior portraits so I feel very grateful for these things but not having a more constant schedule and not earning enough to live on my own only from art I have gotten really down at times too. Like I am doing what I love before even going to college where I can form even more connections and I'm proud that I have been doing some great projects as well that are going into my portfolio for college but then there is a nagging feeling like I don't have a big enough audience or enough interest to have it as my only career and not seeing other people every day with the same passion is weird and isolating. Some days I am really happy and smiling for the most part and then suddenly I am laying on the floor feeling worthless and like I'm not doing enough with my life to be successful and it won't go away for a while. I did feel a lot better after visiting my high school though and seeing my art teachers and just feeling at home really helped boost my attitude. Maybe once I really start to figure out college stuff and doing a bunch of paperwork I'll feel better or something. 

Other than that I am applying to some jobs now trying to earn more money for college (dream job outside of art is making coffee) and figuring out financial aid stuff because I'll be the first one in my family going off to college and I have no idea what anything means. I recently got new glasses (which doesn't change much for you guys since I don't show my face on here) but my vision has also improved a bit which hasn't happened ever. Also on an art note, I have been working a lot slower recently for the past few months on bigger projects and have done a few more smaller ones for on here because I have been trying to increase my amount of color pieces and since I have now doubled my pieces made in color I am finally allowing myself to use the mediums I am more comfortable with. 

A slightly bigger announcement if you haven't seen my status or looked too hard on my descriptions is that I have an Instagram! Pretty much just for art pieces and photography but I plan to post there more regularly than on there since I feel like it will help more business stuff as here is more for friends and the community. Here is my Instagram: instagram.com/jodi_shephard/

Sorry if this was very unorganized but I am listening to music right now and keep getting distracted.

Hey, I'm still alive! I swear I've been doing art but I keep forgetting to put it on my laptop to put on here, check out my Instagram if you want to make sure you don't miss any pieces I do! www.instagram.com/jodi_shephar…
I think I just got (as in 15 minutes ago) a pinched nerve when I stretched my neck wrong. It hurts a lot which is ironic since I made plans today with myself to work on a bunch of projects and now a few of the more intensive things I have to put on hold. If you have any advice it would be appreciated!
It's late but Happy New Year!! Dedicated to trying to focus on my friends this year to make sure they feel valued and working hard in a job and eventually college!
I got a laptop that can withstand programs similar to photoshop (although I am planning on using free stuff) so I can maybe try out some digital drawing.
Sorted some of my gallery into a 2018 folder if you interested in looking at all the drawing related stuff I did this year
