firstly let me just ask to those who I owe a trade to just drop me a YOU OWE ME STUFF comment ;)


ok, so what have I been up to? seems like my last entry was last year april too, been absent for a year-ish

I've been dealing a lot with personal issues, especially within art, and such but I'm trying to make it back, I know I've said it before in previous journals here, but hopefully this time it sticks.

I got a new german shepherd puppy last year, and let me tell you what a journey that's been, and the hardest part was keeping quiet about it all, he has taken up much of my time, and energy, not to mention that he had a go, at my tablet which put me out of commission

but then earlier this year, my best friends sister asked if I'd be able to help her design some logo's and artwork for her company, that is selling clothing, and its kind of set me up for doing commissions I've never sold art, its always been something of a personal matter to me I've always wanted to keep my art as a personal thing, something that I can relax to, I've never been able to deal with the indecisive nature of people who aren't quite happy with what you've created, but I decided, well, why not, lets make money from art, and so I sold my first commission to a lady a few days ago, and then another, just yesterday, and today, I was requested another, I feel lucky that people seem to like what I'm doing, and that I've made enough money from the designs I sold to be printed on T-shirts to replace my tablet again, which I'm now working towards getting an ipad pro so I can work with more freedom and on the go.

I've also got back into writing, I always used to think 100 pages was an achievement to reach, but I have written more than 600 pages in under 6 months, and the worst part of it is its utter crap that I'll never allow anyone to read, but it keeps my hands busy at night, or in the darker moments when I don't know what to do anymore, writing has been a good councilor at helping me through some weird issues.

I am really active on isntagram, follow me if you have an account my handle is inyoni for the art account and overberg_wolves for the crazy dog lady account :D

anyway, thats all for now,
a somewhat more personal journal than I normally ever post
:)

hey (:
I deleted most of my dusk stuff, mostly because I didn't like how my story was turning out, felt like parts were missing, SO I decided I wanted to start fresh, and try turn it into a motion book for deviantart :)
