it's been a long year and sorry I've been away. This is going to be a long journal expressing some changes and what's going on in my future as well as currently. How is everyone? I missed y'all.
Seeing a lot beautiful art out of you guys, unfortunately too much for me to go through individually and fave everything. I love all your art, and I will continue to encourage everyone to keep going.
So what's new? I guess I'm officially a professional artist and all that with my degree from San Francisco State University. Woot Woot! So along with that, I have to start setting some new ground rules and I hate to do this so suddenly but it has to be done. I for a while have been despairing about returning to this website because I reached a point where I can no longer do trades and exchanges and gifts for free. The area that I live in is a metropolis in a since, and is the home of the ever rising google and as wonderful as it to have a great economic success for our area....it causes problems. One of the biggest issues of this area, even with more job opportunities, is everything costs f***ing alot. I mean ridiculously so, even housing is a major problem. I live almost two hours from my job by public transportation of which just promoted me (yay me). So not only do I have a lot less time to do work, but a lot less money too. Not that I'm trying to burden any of you with that problem, but at some point something has to give and the making of art for free is what has to give. So no trades, no gifts, no points, no requests. All of that has to end.
Now that doesn't mean I won't stop making art. Honestly, I'm probably going to make more since I need to figure art s*** out. I have paintings and drawings, and I work as a photographer. I'm a real jack of trades right now. What is my passion? *Everything. LOL!!! But honestly I think I'm going to do fanart an comics for a while.
I'm also going to do paid only work. I will start prices low, after I start getting my stuff together. (I moved again and it's annoying thus far but whatever, I think it got worked out? Honestly, I'm not sure it is but f*** if I'm going to let someone push me out of something I paid for.) So expect a managery of paintings, and a loot of fanart, and maybe some photography.
PS. if you have any questions or want to chat, pm me. I'll check my inbox and messages once a week now.
