Well everyone, yesterday I had my birthday and I am officially in my 30s! Lots of good things have happened over the years and I am pretty proud on how far I have come. Some days I feel like I am way behind on things in life, but when I look back to all of the things I have done, I'm really happy how it has been turning out. 

Things I have done in the past decade:

Graduated from two different colleges
Made some great friends during those times
Found the love of my life
Adopted 2 cats
Traveled
Sold at numerous conventions and craft fairs
Published a comic with two friends
Bought a house
My work was in a few local galleries
Hosted two art exhibits
Organized craft fairs
Have my work being sold in a couple of different stores
Met some amazing people
Plus a bunch more little things that just get you through life. 

Here's to a great decade ahead of me! I feel like my 30s are going to rock. 

Thank you to everyone who has been supporting me and my art work for this past decade!

After months of my old drawing bugging the ever hell out of me, I decided to redo this illustration. The first time around, I just rushed through it, trying to get as many drawings done for a local convention to sell at. Which is why it's so sloppy and just awful! I also sketched it on the computer, which I am awful at. 

This time around, I took my time, I sketched it out in my book, had a reference photo of a side view portrait, and actually put some care into it. I'm reallllly happy how it finally turned out. 

So ya, no more rushing through drawings! Quality is better than quantity!

Will be for sale as prints at upcoming events in the Maritimes!

This is what not rushing to get pictures done looks like. Top is what I did in a rush back in October 2014. I wanted to produce so many new illustrations for Hal-Con, that I just did sloppy work. Sorry to anyone who bought a print of the top! Bottom pic is what I am currently working on. I will probably finish her after the weekend. Freelance work comes first! Or this would have been done tonight. Anyways, just wanted to do a comparison!
