2015 was a weird year.

It began with my family getting a third cat (a very ill feral kitten rescued from our garage...who is now a happy and healthy cat who likes to get head scratches from his humans), and ended with my computer dying. ...again. promising to be even weirder.

There are several things I've decided to do this year; and most of them are big and scary but exciting at the same time.

....this thing is a big project. Its an exciting project. Its something I've wanted to do for YEARS. And is something I have tried doing many times, without much success.

Those lovely handful of people who know me very well will probably know what this secret project is. ...the rest of you can make wild guesses in the comments. :P



The long story short is that 2015 was a very busy year, and I'm just a touch burnt out on doing conventions. ...and well my SECRET PROJECT OF SECRETS has been paitently waiting for me to be done with conventions, and commissions, and family health stuff, so I could have time to work on it in a more focussed manner.

So, instead of doing every single convention I get accepted to this year (like I did last year...) I'm only going to be doing 5 of them. far, I have no conventions that I will be selling at just yet, but I'll be sure to post about them later. :)

Well more finished artwork anyway.

Because of the large number of conventions I did last year, plus other fun happenings in my life, I didn't make a lot of art. ...or at least not a lot of finished stuff. I did fill a LOT of sketchbooks though.

This year I want to change that. I want to turn a lot of my loose sketches from last year into finished paintings. (to push myself in areas of: value, and composition, and color)

#4: Patreon???!!!
I have a lot of sketchbooks.

All filled cover to cover with art that few people have ever seen. ...that perhaps more people would like to see.

So here's an idea. A Patreon campaign, filled with pages from my sketchbooks, works in progress, and early releases of any new artwork I make. (...and pictures of my three adorable kitties)

The sketchbook pages would be exclusive to Patreon, as would the works in progress. The new artwork would be released for free on DeviantArt after a certain amount of time. (couple of days to a week) But the rest will be locked behind the paywall.

Would anyone be interested in this?

(I will be making a patreon someday. But if anyone wants to see my sketches maybe I could make a patreon sooner than later? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.)

....2016 is going to be weird, but exciting in all the best ways. There is a lot I want to do, and a lot more I've started doing that I can't wait to share with the world.

ps: my Etsy is always open, and if there's something you'd like as a print or a charm, let me know and I'll see what I can do to make that happen for you. ;) [Etsy]
