Cliche new year's motivation journal ahead that you should totally read...


my goal is to really take this whole art thing seriously. I don't want to live with my parents forever and I sure as hell don't want to be stuck in retail purgatory for the rest of my life. To change that, I need to take more initiative with the arts and where I share them. I absolutely wanna make some small changes for the better. I know we've all run in circles about how bad 2016 was, but in all honesty.. it was really bad on a personal level for me. I did very little to push myself forward in many ways, and I hope that a year reset can motivate me to do better.

A lot of people's resolutions consist of social media and wanting to use it less, but in all honesty I think it would do me some good to use it more. I forget that art communities can be such a positive driving force for me in regards to inspiration and feedback about what I create.

In all honesty I actually owe you all an apology. I'm nearing 1000 watchers for the first time, and I've hardly been here to thank everyone for being along my wild ride. So.. I'm both sorry.. but I'm also really thankful for every one of you for being here. Seriously. Thank you.

It might be too big of a push, but I want to draw every single day this year. I refuse to let myself break the chain. It's so easy to get out of a loop, and once you're out of that loop, it's even harder to get back in. As long as I don't break the chain, I can keep pushing myself to do what I love and what I want to be

I can honest to god thank an episode of the Game Grumps for that one. LISTEN I KNOW THE EPISODE IS TITLED GASSY TODDLERS BUT THEY TALK ABOUT MOTIVATING SHIT OKAY????? LISTEN UP

so hey.... expect just a little more of me being around, in more ways than one <3 I just was able to place my order for my first shirt run, I'm planning a patreon, my etsy is doing well.. and I REALLY REALLY WANNA SELL AT MORE CONVENTIONS. I applied to Sakura-Con, but I wasn't accepted (speaking of which if anyone has any advice for cons that are less than two days away from Montana, I'd love to know?? I want to get myself out there but it takes LOTS of planning because of where I live)

uh.. this has gone on long enough.. big thanks to who took the time to read this, really. thank you. I look forward to your support

a) Just checked out your gallery - skills, girl! I very much dig your strong lines and bold colours - you've got real talent for artistry. And the icing on the cake is that you can lay down those sweet lines of yours in both digital and traditional form! Yowza! :dummy:

b) As for people getting too friendly, I say take from it what you want, on your own terms. It may be a bit spooky and awkward sometimes, but the plus side is that you get the ego-massage from people looking at your art - I personally wouldn't give out my address for gifts, but if people really like you enough to send you something, they can use Paypal to spend the money on commissioning you, or just donate.

seriously, this means the world to me! One of the biggest things I'm super insecure about art-wise is style and if I have one at all... so any time anyone mentions a style, I get super giddy. Thank you! for real!

also that's not a bad idea I totally should set up paypal donations. I'm a broke dropout working two jobs hhh ;u;

a) No problem! I know what it's like to be busy. Life comes first, right? :)

b) Again, no problem. You've really got some serious skills; please, never be worried about having style, 'cause you've got it in bucketloads. There's a lot to be learned from you, and it's a privilege to have experienced your work - in fact, if I wasn't so rotund and jolly and generally easy-going, I might well be putting you on my ARTISTIC RIVALS LIST. :noes:

(*grins* Just kidding! If I listed every single watch-worthy artist, it's possible that I'd run out of paper, and take to wearing a tin-foil hat to keep the art vibes from escaping.) :dummy:

c) Wow, two jobs, eh? That's seriously hardcore. And, something juicy to put in your memoirs!

What you might benefit from is setting up a Patreon account - it seems to be popular with a lot of artists on DeviantART. It means cranking out artwork on a semi-regular basis, but if you can do that, there's money to be made.

another late reply.. but I wanted to reply because I've been on and off considering a Patreon?? And I just remembered this comment and how you mentioned it - I think that's gonna be my goal for 2017! Thank you for reminding me about it, it's been at the back of my brain for a while :)

(also seriously! thank you for the lovins! ;u; )
