I turned twenty years old today, and like most birthdays, I don't feel older, or wiser, or more mature. I feel like me, and that's how I hope all my birthdays feel like in the future. But I do want to note how happy I am to spend another year with people I care deeply about and them likewise, how much I can reflect on how I've grown over the past year, and what new goals I can set to better myself. I feel ready to start this new chapter in my life and I want to thank everyone who has ever been involved in it and wanted nothing but push me further in a positive direction. Moreover, I am excited to see what this year will bring — and, for onc

Livestream!

Livestream!

So I've taken on a new platform to working: Livestreaming! Basically, it allows anyone to watch as I paint. I actually really enjoy a more public platform; it gives me a chance to hear feedback as I work. For whoever's interested, my Livestream URL is http://www.livestream.com/thethirteenthour. (Oh, and for the record, I'm Livestreaming as I'm writing this. :))

Buuuuut other than school, I've been out of work and I'd like to occupy myself this winter break by doing something, so uh, what if I made personalized paper dolls? I think they might be a nice, cheap option for holiday gifts or something.

Tag, quality  deviant, you’re it! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!
