I seem to be changing rapidly in so short a time, figuring out life and myself... that's what my mommy calls, "Growing up!"

I create art for me, I create it because I feel there is nothing, literally nothing else I could do that wouldn't end up killing me in an excruciatingly painful way i.e. a "real" job. Whether people find that I'm amazingly great at "art" or not makes little difference to me really. I just want to learn and get better. It's one of the only things that challenge me, and that alone holds my heart. But that doesn't mean I don't get all giggly when people comment, critique, fav, or watch, because I really appreciate it!)

Oh, and I love cupcakes, buttons, and being pessimistic.

Hello,

It's been a super long time since I've update.  I just submitted a quick sketch the other day and a poem type things today.  I've just been busy with school and working on those projects.  Can't wait to graduate!... then again a part of me can definitely wait because there are soooo many things I need to prepare for after graduation and before graduation.  Anyway, I won't be graduating this year, so I have some time... I suppose.  I still have the hope that I will get the time and true motivation to just buckle down and start writing some of my own story, my own comic.  Nothing grand or big or clever, but more informal and just for me.  It is one of my dreams to pull this off in a very small, basic way.  Not trying to have the next great comic book/graphic novel of the century.  I just want another outlet that will also allow me to practice.  Technically, I don't classify myself as a comic artist or draftsmen or illustrator or anything related to drawing.  I am a fiber/materials artist.... I just never post much of that art work on here anyway which really is a shame.  It's something that my mind is so all over the place and I have many loves.  I never can just stick to one thing, which can be a blessing or something that will probably come back and bite me in the ass.  So we will see.  Obviously I love design too and started with fashion design/fashion illustration in mind.  If I were a stronger draftsmen, I would put more effort into pursuing that (the illustration side, I suppose)... but I guess I'm not as strong because I don't practice as much, blah blah.  Oh well, gotta keep trying.
