6 years, that's a lot of time to cover!

In 2009 I graduated with my BFA. I worked doing other things for awhile, still creating, but more as a hobby and not as frequently. In 2011 I learned how to sew and made my first cosplay. In 2012 I went to a convention in a costume for the first time. In 2013 I was officially hooked and made 2 new outfits for the same convention. In 2014 I did a show called Delaware Fun-A-Day where you made a piece of art every day for a month that culminated in a group show at the end. I had learned how to crochet amigurumi that year, so between those and sewing projects I really pushed myself to create using felt and fabric. In 2015 I did the same show, but couldn't really do sewing because I didn't have the space at the time. I turned to illustration, kind of my artistic go-to, but feeling nervous about putting it out there for a very well attended show. It was well received: I was asked for prints and invited to attend the artist alley of a small up-and-coming convention. Everything has just kind of steamrolled from there. Now, with 2015 coming to a close, I made the big leap of making this my real job. I'm taking some classes to flesh out my artistic experience (I'm sorely lacking when it comes to Photoshop and Illustrator), and working on new ideas that I finally have time for! I'm looking forward to posting more often, so please keep an eye out for new work!
New semester, new work, busy busy.

I'm working on an illustration assignment and took some photos for reference and really fell in love with the one I submitted as "You and Me". The light was just right and I warmed it up a bit, but that was it.

I'm working on some outside of class projects too: a drawing for some work friends of their comic book/adventure character Doc Clock, I'm getting my little garlic guy (who I've decided to name Bebo) printed as a sticker.. and some other little projects.

So I hope things are going well for you, too!

It was supposed to rain today. And it didn't.

A woman bought me my coffee just because.

I did an exceptionally good job in figure drawing.

And the undergrad art show is coming up...


So life seemed a little magical today.

It was beautiful out. It felt like spring. The sun was warm, the wind was cool. The trees are shaking the cold off, their bright and buttery little buds just poking through, as if to see if the world is ready yet. "Are you ready for spring?" So much to do, so much excitement. Today was too perfect to hold on to though, I suppose. It's already over.
