I am an entirely self taught artist. First started drawing around two thousand four, I think, because I never honestly kept track of it. Got discouraged a lot, gave up on it a few times, but then just really said "I'm going to do this", and through meeting other artists, getting critique and suggestion, and critically examining and observing how other artists went about doing their own works, I've begun to figure it out.
Drawing for me continues to be a challenge because most of the time I lack motivation to even want to do it at times. My new job with the FAA also takes up a lot of time too and its not like I can draw at work around mundanes anyway. Also, anytime I put pencil to paper I have this mindset that I want to create something that's able to be appreciated online, rather than just sketches I just see for myself, so most of my practices are incorporated into or found out from doing full drawings.
I am a SoCal resident and I don't anticipate leaving anytime soon, even though this state is abysmal and so rediculous with its outright bullshit laws and way of thinking that at times I think I would be better off somewhere else, most of everything that I've known and grown attached to is here, so here I am. If you're close around the Lancaster area, maybe we can meet.
I make a strong commitment to make it to FurtherConfusion and Califur every single year. Antheria is a smaller convention that I also try to attend as well. Other furcons out of state, less of a chance, but, providing this new job works out and becomes a permanent full time affair, may become possible.
I check back here often hoping to get comments by those that see my work, rather than just glancing at something and moving on. Artists thrive on comment from their peers and fans alike, so if you see something and feel strongly about it, let them know that! Seeing views count up on the submissions is nice, but we can't look into your head and read your emotions you know?
Hey all, short journal.
I'm going to be attending Further Confusion this year in San Jose. I'll be staying there at the Hilton with all its weird typewriters on the walls of the hotel rooms, and this is done intentionally. I'll be arriving on the afternoon of Thursday, and departing early Tuesday morning.
There's this meme thing on my account at FurAffinity detailing stuff.
How can I be found if you too are around? I'm going to be wearing or carrying around a SwissGear backpack full of my various stuff I'll need during the con, and pinning a lot of my big bling badges of my Centaurpede form to myself. Its kind of hard to miss this pieces of wearable art! I'll also be wandering slowly around the Dealers Room during the con chatting and hanging out with a bunch of my artist friends and trying to score as many commissions as I can.
So, hope to see you there.
