I’m making a little blog post to update on my life & where my art’s headed, because I’ve been so busy I haven’t really had time to do that in a long while.
The year is not over yet, but my life is pretty much booked up to the end of January so it may as well be. I think that’s why they say time goes faster the older you get, because you have more things going on left and right, you don’t really have time to just sit and think or really “do nothing” at all (and scrolling Tumblr counts as ‘doing nothing’.. I miss doing that!). So before you know it, the year is gone!!
All that being said, I know the more the year’s went on I’ve been less and less active, but I have been really taking the time to work on some personal projects I hope everyone will like…
This year my apparel has really taken off in a way I was not expecting… I first made a shirt prototype for myself and when I posted a photo I was surprised to see others were interested. Since then, summer cons have really blown up for me, and I’ve been working on own brand, Ocean In Space. The exact launch date is not known yet but I’m aiming for mid-November.
In turn of this, my shirts will be available at their first retail location in Toronto next month (info to come!) and I am a fashion guest at G-Anime in January.
As for commissions… ;; I know, since June, I’ve literally been pushing them back month by month by month. But I promised them and they are coming!! December-January should be the time I am able to do them. I will try my absolute absolute best for it.
Of course I’ve been posting a lot about it but, I also have a Cintiq Companion now, which has, in only 24 hours, changed my life. I really needed an upgrade and I’m so glad I’m able to take my work to such a professional level now.
All in all, I don’t know where I want to go from here yet… I know I want to continue making work to make people smile.
And I want to thank everybody from the bottom of my heart, seriously - I’ve been on the internet for about 13 years now, legit.
I started from the bottom. And by no means and I saying I’m at the top, but I am successful, and I’m able to make a living off of doing what I love. And I’ve always been humble about it, because it’s just always been this way. I’ve always been drawing, and creating, and working towards a goal. So I wanted to thank everybody. Every person whose sent me a little message, or liked my stuff, or people who have followed and haven’t said a word. I’m priveledged. I’m really happy I have so many people who I can share my work with and get that message I’m trying to send out. So thanks for always watching, commenting, and reading. I don’t reply to everything and sometimes it seems like I don’t see things, but I see everything! And I am so so grateful. Thank you for helping me become who I am today and for helping me get where I am today. I hope I can continue to improve and make great art for everyone!
Thank you again
