-weep- Just had a look at my school schedule and my con inventory and it looks like I’m about to go on a massive FF7 diet. I need new art for con season and there’s only a small break between finals and A-kon. I’ve got a half-colored pic for myself and promised prize art of Chaos and a tonberry, but after that things will be pretty quiet here. I'll be reblogging old comics and posting ancient/forgotten watercolors to my tumblr (don't abuse that link, I don't usually mention it here!).
...of course, if I fail biology, I might graduate later. The midterm hasn't come back yet, but I don't feel confident at all. I'll be angry about the time and money, but not ashamed if I fail. When you're an adult you know better than to judge yourself by bullshit standards. Those of you still in high school, you are right, most of what they're teaching you is useless, and you will never need it after school is over! On the other hand, I would be ashamed if I failed one of my design or publishing classes. Even when it's hard, you've got to pour yourself entirely into your dreams or you don't deserve them.
Back to A-kon! As we get closer to the date, I'll post a few teaser photos. Maybe I haven't drawn many new (non-FF7) things, but I have been stitching and sewing. This will be a great year to pick up one-of-a-kind squishy things and decorative accessories. I'm in the process of revamping my prints, so you'll find a lot of old designs are gone and a few new ones have appeared. This could be your last chance to get a few old designs! I was surprised to see people want watercolors back this year. I don't have a dedicated watercoloring space anymore (ha! I used to do it on a cardboard box on the floor!) but I will do my best to set time aside for new paintings. NO PROMISES (okay I have some sketches ready).
