Soooo this is what I've been up to

Sat Dec 20, 2014, 11:23 PM



Hello guys, like my new logo?? /)>///v///<(\ Haha! I actually desperately need to update my journal layout with new buttons and stuff.... x o x My Instagram isn't even on there orz |||||


Just a little update on the Christmas Letters project, we raised $158 to give to Sick Kids Foundation. I am soooooo pleased. ;////; I will definitely be doing this again next year.

(A note: I requested USD from all bidders but submitted the donation money in CAD (Canadian). After the conversion I was left with $25 CAD which I put towards shipping out the letters and drawings. It's something I should've mentioned in the beginning and apologize for it. 
m(_ _)m)

Further more!! As usual I mentioned this on my Tumblr like over a month ago, buttttt I have been working on a very special project over these past couple of months!! I feel really bad actually, because as you might (??) know Ichi and I bought a house a couple of months ago. And I was getting all geared up to start a whole bunch of new personal projects... and I was telling eeeveryone that.... TT 7 TT

But within the first week I moved in to the new house, I was hired for contract work with a local game company Sakura River to do character illustrations for their newest visual novel. Yup, I'm working on a real visual novel! *0*;;;;;;;;
Over the past couple of months I've been super busy with that. But my contract actually finally ends Wednesday! It was quite an experience. It was my first real job as an illustrator, and I learned a lot. I'm super excited to see the game when it's all finished, and will let everyone know when it's available! (It'll be on Steam, btw!)

A couple previews of the images:
 



So with 2015 approaching, I have a lot of goals I want to tackle!! */////* In the new year I would really love to start making clothes, accessories, and new original prints.
I have a sweater I've been working on for a little while I'm going to release in January, btw u ////////////u

OH YEAH, and more Youtube vids! For sure!! <3

I cannot wait /)///////(\ Thank you everyone for sticking around.. I can't wait to show everyone my true original colours. :heart:

Happy holidays and happy new year! 

xoxo Ocean

I've actually never done one of these before!! o 0o Kinda cool.
A lot of things that happened in my life I can really see through the development (or lack there of) in my art.
In recent years, I really wanted 2013 to be my year of growth, but I felt like I lost that whole year. x _x

2014 was great for that. I think what helped me a lot this year is that I met a lot of reaaaally amazing people. I was opened up to so many different kinds of art, and that's really helping me broaden my horizon and making me want to be more of an individual.

Screen printing, zines, freelancing, programmers, app-developers, crafts... there's so many ways I can output my work! I really want to just try them all. ; w ;
I have a sweater coming in the new year...... I can't wait to show everyone! >//v//<

See you all soon. o v o And have a happy holiday/new year !!!

Been awhile since a sketch dump!! Lots of traditional, too! I post most of my traditional art on my Instagram.

I've drawn so much over the past year, did a lot of experimentation, which I think is apparent in this dump. 
Let me know what you think.

Enjoy :'D

Christmas Letters Charity Project

Mon Dec 8, 2014, 1:40 PM




Hi everyone~~!! I'm doing my Christmas Letters Project again this year.
Last year, I had everyone comment on my journal and I randomly picked a dozen or so who would receive a free letter & ink drawings from me. This year I'm making it a little different.

Because Christmas time is nearing, I want to give back to my community. So instead I'll be putting up five pieces for auction, with 100% of the proceeds going to charity.

Furthermore, every bidder will receive a hand-written letter and card from me, whether you win or lose the bid. (Given that that's something you want)

The auction will end December 14th.

Auction will be open HERE in the comment section:

Christmas Letters Charity Project Auction Pieces by oceantann


About the charity

The charity I've chosen to fund is Sick Kids Foundation, a hospital in Toronto where I spent as a kid when I had pacemaker operations.

A couple years ago I did a charity project and some people got to accusing me that I was going to run off with the money or something. Fully understandable! So I will be making the receipt I get from Sick Kids fully available to anyone who expresses those concerns.

Thank you everyone for reading!

I really LOVE your art! Um, I feel pretty guilty about asking this, but I am super new, and I just figured out the concept of "points", and I have been asking around and people said that they got their first points by asking someone who looked nice, and, well, you look nice, so I guess I am sort of asking if you could let me have some...Horo Guilty jeesh, now I feel terrible. Maybe it would be best if you just deleted this, I would totally understand. (in background: *idiot, idiot, idiot, idiot, idiot, idiot*)
