I’m setting some goals for the next year and half in terms of my story and personal artwork.

Spring!(ish)

Blog

May 12, 2018

Warm weather is finally here, and birds are flocking to my backyard.

I appreciate the warmer weather, because I feel better … but where is the rain? I love the rainy season, and we’ve had nothing but dry, dreary weather.

Finally finished!

Blog

April 23, 2018

My vector piece is finally completed. It’s been a long few weeks, but I think it looks pretty good. I’ve put it in folder of files to be printed closer to the June event.

After I get my art site up and running in August, I’ll have a lot of posts to share ūüôā

Slow Working Vector

Blog

April 09, 2018

I have put (an estimated) 30 hours into my vector piece so far … It’s so close, and still yet so far from being ready to print.

Everything is finally melting!

I don’t usually get excited about the change of seasons, but I guess being a homeowner, my perspective has shifted. I’m much more aware of the melting snow (less sidewalk maintenance), and the sun coming through the curtains earlier in the morning.

It’s taking me too long to finish this piece. I’ve put entirely too much time in it, but I don’t care. I want it to be right.

Facing a Fear

February 28, 2018

My younger brother started the RRC Portfolio Prep class for DMD last week. Tonight, I’m sitting at the campus waiting for him to finish up.

I Don’t Do “Slow”

Blog

January 18, 2018

One of things that I’ve always hated about learning a new art technique (or a new instrument, or a new coding language, etc., ad naseum …); is that the advice received right from the beginning is, “start with the basics.”

Thank you for absolutely nothing.

Art Anxiety

Blog

January 11, 2018

My art, my writing, and my crafts are for me. The things that I create have always been for my eyes only. I’m a very private person, and I’m okay with keeping my creativity to myself.

The surest way to prevent me from completing a project is to walk into my work space, spy on what I’m slaving over, and offer me your honest opinion.

Because in all honesty … I don’t want to hear it.

I am so revved up and ready to work on my FanExpo artwork!¬†I’ve completed inking for two pieces, and have started digital workups.

Growing up, I didn’t have any patience for nonsense (and I largely still don’t). I never believed in Santa Clause or the Tooth Fairy, and I told my parents they were either insane or liars if they expected me to waste my time on such melarkey.¬†

I’m a shameless introvert. I’m happy to bide my time at home with paints, yarn, writing, Netflix, and my brother and sister (and maybe even spend time with my boyfriend).¬†Interacting with others does not provide me with “social energy” or a “recreational pick-me-up.”

Christmas is my kryptonite.

November Art Meet

Blog

November 25, 2017

The time between my monthly meet-ups with my college friends feel so far between. Thirty days is comparable to an eternity when the season changes & the temperature drops, a holiday happens wherein more than fifty people ring your doorbell, stores change their displays, neighbours change their decorations, and co-workers take turns away for holidays.

Harder Than I Thought

Blog

November 17, 2017

November is turning out to be a rather troubling month.

I tend to keep my list of objectives fairly short to prevent myself from getting overwhelmed, and in order to prioritize my focus on items of significance. Quality over quantity.

I’ve come to the conclusion that playing it safe is boring.

My Facebook memories have been reminding me that approximately the same time last year (and in subsequent years), I was also awake at 3:00 am. Uncomfortable. Unable to relax. And unhappy about it.

I love the fall. The air is crisp and cool, birds don’t wake me up at 6:00 am, everything is colourful and Halloween costumes and decorations are being promoted everywhere.¬†
