Hello!! I am an enthusiastic some-what energetic 20-something year old who is crazy about art and writing! I graduated with a BAS in Animation & Visual Effects! My passion lies in illustration, film and writing (mainly being a colorist!!)

My favorite color is purple and the combinations of turquoise & purple as well as red & purple.

Are You Sunburned Yet?

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 1, 2015, 6:17 PM
Time for a new journal given the last one was done over half a year ago and stuff's been happening.

My state is still in a major drought so it's been roasting, though it's mostly just been nicely sunny but we've had some scorchers and we need the rain. I'm currently still freelancing, namely working for Altabe Studio which I've been a part of for years doing various projects as well as doing nannying. Jobs in the art industry are tight and a fierce competition for, I'm not the only one in this boat. But I'm doing fine, just got to step up the art game if I am to land a concept artist or something or other position!

March was a bit of a hard month for me: at the end of February and for the first weeks of March I had to bring in my car for various problems. I also got my first flat tire but thankfully my insurance covers it (AAA is the best) and their emergency guy swapped it with the spare. I was able to bring it into my mechanic right away who simply plugged the hole so I didn't have to buy a whole new tire.

Mostly the biggest thing is that my 92 year old maternal grandma died the day before St. Patrick's Day. I was able to see her that weekend and she was fading fast, so weak but still awake, just sleeping a lot and having some pain so she went on morphine. We had the memorial a few weeks later. I wasn't close to her as much as I am with my paternal grandma but I still broke down at my job the day it happened. I'm fine now, it literally was just for the day she passed that I was all emotional about it.

On a happier note: I got to see Ant-Man with my dad! I had no idea what to expect for the movie as I know of Ant-Man (from the cartoons and animated movies) but I wasn't too familiar with this incarnation of him. It was a little long/slow going in the beginning but they had funny moments and smart remarks that had the audience laughing, including me. Especially during the fight scenes, they were just too funny and good. And I have worked on the next chapter of Kibou Hoshi for those of you who care about it. I just have to figure out how to tie up the chapter then I'll get it up ASAP. I want it over and done with! JUST HAVE TO ACTUALLY PLAN STUFF OUT AND PACE IT SO IT'S NOT TOO SHORT OR LONG.

So that's my report so you all know I'm still kicking. Also I'm totally psyched for Digimon Adventure Tri!!! I hope it doesn't let us fans down and actually develops the characters more/doesn't just focus on Tai and perhaps we'll FINALLY see fusions/DNA digivolves of other digidestined's digimon and perhaps even their mega forms as well (not just having Agumon and Gabumon, the others got the short end of the stick).




Also: I'm totally up for ideas of what to draw for drawing exercises. So requests are open, but don't expect me to draw something FOR YOU. Those are what commissions are for.

Which if anyone is interested in a commission, drawing/painting or plushie please let me know!

Though I'm totally ticked by dA's statement about art theft. Some people I know on here have decided to leave thanks to dA's blatantly ignorant and insensitive remarks on the matter. Just so stupid, I can't even. Sadly this means I eventually might scoot off, I just have to find an alternate site  and make new friends (which is always a good thing... not). I have way too much stuff on here and I've been on this site for over 10 years. So I'm torn. If anyone knows of good alternate art sites, please let me know.
---------

:glomp: Thank you~ (I read that as "persona Happy birthday" lol! WORD ASSOCIATION.)
I am thank you! Very relaxing! I was suppose to have my first job interview today but they canceled it because they hired someone else. OH WELL. I'm just enjoying my time! I got to have Japanese today too, this restaurant has this great green tea ice cream (and I don't even like actual green tea)! And my sister got me Big Hero 6 as well as a lap desk for my laptop (since I have actually burned my lap a couple of times LOL... yeah bad mac)
