For this blog at least.
Wowza. I don’t think I would have imaged the path this last year led me when I started this blog last year, personally and artistically. I was in a major slump, both mentally and physically sick, and barely drawing at all. If I got out of bed at all, the last thing I wanted to do was touch a paint brush.
A year, 6 jobs, and a move later… I’m now working towards the goal of grad school, applying to galleries, and spending most of my free time drawing/painting/sewing. I’m even making a life sustaining wage!!
A good portion of that is thanks to you lot. Knowing that my art is appreciated is a huge help during my down times. There’s a handful of you that’ve followed me from the very beginning, who still regularly like, reblog, or comment on my new works. There’s the newer followers that are just as active on me feed and dig through my archive… and all of it fills me with warm fuzzies because people I don’t even know appreciate the work I’m putting out there. I’d like to think most of you would be awesome friends, or at least fun people to grab a beer with if we were ever in the same area.
So thanks everyone, for the support and sticking with me this past year.
Lets hope this next year has less low points, but higher high points.
