So I’ve set my patreon to *hiatus*, maybe permanently. I don’t know yet. At first I was really enthusiastic about it, but as time went on, and I couldn’t gain any traction, I began to really doubt I could make it work. I can’t even find the motivation to do anything for it anymore. Maybe I’ll reactivate it once I’m in a better headspace.
Thanks for sticking with me here for as long as you have, I really appreciate it.
If you’re still interested in showing me your support, please consider commissioning me, or buying a print or other merch from my shops using the links below:

Mighty Con Dupage has come and gone. I really thought that there would have been a better turn out with the weather being as hot as it was, I think people opted to stay home where it was cool. While I didn’t do great, it wasn’t terrible. I had great neighbors on both sides, I got to chat with young artists, and a few friends I haven’t seen since last year (or maybe the year before). I’ll most likely do it again next time it rolls around.
Lately I feel like the internet has become a black hole, while people may like your work they wont necessarily give it a like or comment leaving you to wonder if anyone likes your work at all. And with every site and it’s algorithm, getting your work to your followers is next to impossible. So getting out to these small local shows is so refreshing.
I’m still working on my Chibi Self Portrait, I really like how it’s turning out, I’m thinking of using it to rebrand my website.
First & Second Draft:
Second Draft Edited in Photoshop:
And the finished line work on watercolor paper:
Hoping to have it finished today, I have a portrait commission to start.
I’m also thinking of offering this type of portrait as a commission with an option to put it on merchandise for the client. I can’t remember if Zazzle lets you make private product pages, I know you can’t at Society6. Would anyone be interested in something like this?
Ok, gotta get back to work, I hope everyone has a great week.
Welcome to my new blog – I finally made the jump to WordPress from the rickety old google/blogspot. In a month or so I’ll be deleting my blogspot blog. I really do wish that WordPress was compatible with Wix so I could just use a widget there to display my posts. I’m sure I can find a work-around.
I need to get back into the habit of posting, this micro-blogging trend is to A.D.D. for me.
I have a show on Saturday, and I have some new sketches I’m working on for hopefully new work for that show, and products at my society6 shop.
