Hello Friends! I am super excited to FINALLY show you what I have been working on for the past few months. For a long time I have wanted to look into other platforms of making my work available online (besides the former), but always pushed it aside, feeling like I would lose the "security of a KNOWN planform" for everyone to find me. Now, with the way things are moving in my life, I really do want complete control of how I am represented online.
With this new shop, I will be making ALL OF MY WORK AVAIBLE TO BUY, even discontinued prints!! At this point of my life with multiple health-scares (one after another), I am finally able to see my worth. It shouldn't have taken THAT much to open my eyes, but life has a funny way of putting things into perspective I guess.
Art has always been my whole life, and then there was seriously a point during late August-September of last year that scary enough that I almost didn't make it. I still have a hard time wrapping my mind around the gravity of the whole situation. Almost dying from a stroke -- to then fast forwarding to 7 months later and ALMOST have fully recovered, being able to use my right side & getting to be at home again with my family. I just really want to get back to the life I had of drawing everyday, waking up and going to bed next to my love, cooking, seeing friends and playing with my cat. Somedays I really think that, that whole entire month-experience was just a series of nightmares (not to mention that ACTUAL "ICU-Delirium" Nightmares I experienced when under heavy anesthesia) and want to just wish I could forget about ALL OF IT. But I am told regularly, that I shouldn't, because those experiences that helped me become the person I am today. So, maybe what I'm really trying to say is that, if my art makes people happy (aka my dumb scribbles that my goofy-ass makes), then I'll let THAT be my legacy and HOPEFULLY in the process, I'll try to get better at it for as long as I can :)
For the record, I'm going to make a list of things I want to TRY and get done by the end of this year:
- Re-Print my "Unseen & Unfinished V1" Artbook
- start making acrylic keychains, lanyards, pop-sockets, tumblers, etc.
- bring back Leggings, Skirts, & all other ALL-OVER-PRINT clothing
aaannnddd that's about all that I can think of! I'll probably update this list again, but just wanted to go to bed these ambitions at the forefront of my mind.
Hope you guys like this new format - and I'll be updating it daily until it is complete! <3
