Thanks for your love and support, guys.  I am now officially at my 7,000 mark!  :D  And this is only the beginning......
Hey all.  2010 has finally approached.  Oddly enough, I don't really feel any different.  lol  All the same, I guess it IS time for a little change, eh?

Hey, maybe I'll even finally give this commission thing a try.....

:D

Vexed and Perplexed!

Well, it has come to my attention that I don't have a table for this year's New York Anime Festival.  Sucks, I know.  I was really preparing for this moment only to find that someone messed us up pretty bad.  Guess I'll have to get ready for the next one.  I actually wanted to put a lot out there this year.  I promise you one thing....my preparation will not go in vain!

That was damn cliche, I know.  Just wanted to thank you all for the pageviews.  Just been hella busy.  Just trying to get a lot done without burning myself out.  There's a lot of us who have a lot of talent who WISH that they could go pro, or work their dream job at their favorite company.  It's a tough road, but what would it be without it's challenges?  Alright, that's enough rambling out of me.  lol  Thanks again for your support.

Hi, all.  I know I haven't really responded to a whole lot of you that like my work, so I just wanna say thanks.  Each one of you took the time to check out my stuff, and love the hell out of them.  Especially the Sonic Fans...hey, I got other pieces there besides Sonic too, dammit.  lol  All the same, I'll never quit drawing, and I have only yet to be so much better.

Thanks Again.

Oh, and to GermanCityGirl germancitygirl.deviantart.com, I apologize for the ridiculously long wait, but your drawing will be coming to you soon.

Check her shit out.  It's hot!


Till then, keep sketchin!

:D

Wow....I gotta say, this year's Anime Festival @ NYC was a bit of a disappointment for me, but this little experience wasn't in vain.  I actually got to sell my artwork at a convention for the first time.  The Competition was fierce, but I didn't care.  It was still good all the while.  One of my pieces sold out a lot quicker than I thought it would....outstanding.
Good news.....I got a new hard drive
Bad news....I didn't format it the FIRST time I put everything IN there....
Yeah, I ended up losing most of my work!!!  Man, that sucks!!  I'm a little hurt, but I'll be ok.  I guess I'll have to redo most of them.  Who knows?  They'll end up TWICE as good.  Meh...we'll see.

Well, it's official...I have graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design.  It took a while, but I pulled through.  I wanna go for my Master's though, this time for animation.  But it was the best graduation day I ever had.  For now, I'm doing some job, and soul-searching...no telling what the future will bring.  But through the support of my family, my friends, and people like you, I know I'll make a difference doing what I do best......well, YOU know what that is.  :)

Thanks for Reading.
Yeah, it's true, I have an actual JOB now.....but, nothing in the field yet.  But hey, we all gotta start somewhere, right?  Anywho, I'm now working in this Bed and Bath place close to home.  Only a 5-minute walk too, maybe less, depending on how late I am. :P  I believe it's for $6.50 an hour.  Not too shabby, huh?  This other job, however, is gonna pay me $15 an hour for doing what I do best.....ART!!!  I get to paint a mural on a wall of a church.  I'm still seeing about getting more hours at the Bed and Bath however.  I wanted the money so I can help out my Mom who's basically my #1 hero for keeping a roof over my head and keeping me alive...well, that, an iPod, a laptop, and a PSP!!!  As for the REAL reason, can you say "student loans"?  All this until I get the job that I well deserve....and possibly beyond!!  So......this is the REAL world.....
Well, I gotta say thanks to all those who took the time to look at my work, for the faves, and for making a starvin' artist like myself and many others feel really welcome in a crazy place like this, man.  I've made some pretty cool friends here, a lot of them new ones from damn near all over the country, and that's what makes this site real cool.  Knowing that there're artists out there who're as great as I am...and better, just keeps the drive going, and I say this on behalf of all the artists here.  Everyone from graphic designers to traditional artists to illustrators to photographers, you name it, kid.  And to all those who are just startin' out, you get better at some point, so don't give up!  I guess that's all I gotta say for the moment.  Y'all take care, y'heard?
Well, this has been my first time having ANY of my stuff on the web.  I'm just another starving artist striving to get better at what I do...and nobody really knows who I am...yet.  Katkitoshi led me on to this site, so I figured, "If she can get props for her art (and she IS really good), why can't I?"  And here I am.  I gotta say it's nice to have a place to belong to.
