About to be undertaking some pretty major (and hopefully positive!) changes in my life so I figured I'd make a journal since my account's so incredibly boring still.
For the last year I've been working at a job that, while I did enjoy the work and the people, was incredibly exhausting and left me next to no time to do anything besides work and sleep. And 12 straight hours of hard work kicks your ass, as I'm sure anyone knows. By the time I got home and walked the dog, I would just crash every night... and be up in the morning to repeat again. I just had literally zero energy to do artwork, and even on days I got off I'd just end up sleeping all day. But I'm going to be leaving this job soon (within the month, probably) and I'm really excited about starting somewhere new. My ideal plan is to be able to work somewhere part-time and spend the rest of my time getting back to what I love - my artwork.
So the plan is to supplement my income with commissions. I've gone through and updated my Commission Information with updated pricing, info, and examples, so do feel free to take a look if you're considering buying something in the future! I'm happy to answer any questions you might have. There's a few people I know have been waiting a while I will be contacting first (I have two trades that are mostly done I need to finish beforehand as well) but I absolutely plan to take some work on this spring.
I also bit the bullet today and invested in a new piece of hardware I'm very excited about that should hopefully be here soon and make my process a lot easier... will keep you updated! It was a painful decision but I think it will really boost my productivity.
Thanks as always for the continued support. Hopefully we see lots of positive changes this spring!
