This is a preview of the WIP I’m working on. What’s slowing me up is that I keep changing the background design. I had it real simple and didn’t like it. So, when I get the template set, I’ll be able to make the other two pieces quickly. Then I’ll be selling all three designs on society6 and redbubble. I hope you guys will like it.
Quick note from my personal art blog. xoxo

Mary Blair was the concept artist and color supervisor for many of Walt Disney’s most prominent animated films. She worked in a very stylized and graphic way, often using bright colors. In addition to her animation work, she also illustrated dozens of children’s books and designed many of the attractions for Walt Disney World including the It’s a Small World ride and the Contemporary resort.
Adore those mermaids.
Drawing things out makes me feel a little better
Sorry for the long rant ^^;
Some people don’t feel artists deserve compensation seeing as it’s not as “essential” as, say, doctors or plumbers….Of course, then there are those who think that artists don’t even deserve recognition, let alone payment, so they take away artist sources and comments, thinking that artists live off of the euphoria of drawing alone (and of course if we complain about it, we’re being selfish bitches or spoiled brats).
Yes, recognition is amazing, but we also don’t want to work for free (unless it’s something you just REALLY want to do of course and isn’t looking to buy food with recognition coupons). There are plenty of great companies and people who hire artists, and these hired paid artists get plenty of recognition.
Please note: I don’t mean to say you shouldn’t ever draw for anyone for free evar ever, but you deserve to be paid. Your art has value, and more importantly, your artistic skills have value and people should not expect it for free.
This also is pretty good/funny: Should I work for free? a flow cart
here’s a dump of unfinished things b/c my talent is starting things and then not finishing them. also i have like 666 oc’s
Okay, I had to do a big move last week to a new place if anyone remembers. Trying to get up in running. Might take another week, not sure. I have to actually order furniture. My new apartment is much larger then all of the ones I’ve had before. I realized I didn’t have that much stuff when I packed the studio size u-haul. Weird feeling.
Nothing else to say, I guess. I do have a redbubble and society6 accounts, just no art up yet. I’ve been having to deal with the bank and my paypal and whatnot to do so. My first idea for my shop is to do some mermaid stuff for spring/summer. If there is anything you guys would like to buy from me like a particular print I’ve made or just have a design for a shirt, leave me notes.
