I hope everyone has had a good holiday season. Even if you haven't... I hope you've at least had enough to eat and stayed warm (if you're in the northern hemisphere). I was totally blessed by JammerLea
's parents and they gave me a dickblick giftcard. I've loaded up on Copic Sketch markers!! It's seriously made my Christmas that much more awesome. I do also have a renewed drive to talk less about "doing" art and actually just do it!
I think I always resolve every year to get better in art, but I do have a kind of real drive and desire to TRY now. We have a one day convention coming up in May and we have TWO tables to fill of our art... so I hope that'll be some motivation. lol
I realized, too, that I want to be a better cheerleader and better at communicating with other artists. I don't outright ever attack artists, but I don't go out of my way to praise artists, like I should. I mean, there could be artists out there who like me struggle to feel like their art is good. I struggle with that a lot, so it would be good of me to push to be more positive for others!!
My birthday is in January (late Jan) so I'm hoping I'll get a replacement Wacom tablet. (nothing too fancy, but something that works!)
Short THANK YOU list!!
There's a lot of people that I'd like to thank for helping me out this past year. Like I'm currently in a rough spot, but it's through the kindness of others that I can live my life. I'm seriously grateful to people like JammerLea
who is nothing short of a saint and who has been there for me sometimes more than family has. She's a true sister and best friend. Milkbatty
whose words have really helped me in dark times this past year and who knows these struggles well. Shadsie
who has a way with words that is unlike anyone else and a creative force that I've admired. I regret that I'm so bad at communication that I don't always comment on the really interesting things you do and write about. mallettepagan0
who is always kind and thoughtful. I'd like to be more like that in this coming year. Jessami
who has their own struggles but has always been kind and supportive. I appreciate that so much! yesse-the-hedgehog
who has so much more talent than she credits herself with. She's always been a kind and tough person in the best way.
Forgive me if we're friends and I didn't mention you.
And to anyone else: I hope we can grow as artists in 2018!!
