Some of you may or may not know, that until recently, I was in college, doing Art and Design, and mainly concentrating on the likes of Illustration and Graphics Art.
That has now ended, and while I never really cared about the grade, it was good to learn about the insights into the art process and also a lot of the stuff to do with time management, especially in relation to self employment. 

While at my first Confuzzled, this year, it became apparant to me that this was really what I wanted to do. I wanted to be trading at conventions and stuff. And so I said to myself that the goal now, is to be trading at Confuzzled next year.

Now, on the outside, it looks like a fairly easy goal. I mean, I just have to trade right? I don't have to make X number of monies or anything like that... I just need to trade. 
But when you look at the fact, I have nothing really to trade, no prints, currently no commissions, then it looks to be a lot harder. 

But, that all starts now. College is over, and there is still a lot of time left. But, I need to use that time correctly. 

If I ditch it because I have no artwork to sell, then clearly my heart really isn't in it, and its likely I will drop the whole thing. Maybe thats a little harsh, I mean I guess it all depends on whether or not I get a table or if I get part time work or not... but if I end up just being my old lazy self, then, quite clearly I don't deserve it. 
So thats what I mean by 'It starts now.' 

For the next year, even if I pick up part time work, which kinda needs to happen for financial reasons, I want to be able to treat art more like a job. I need to really if I want to be trading next year. 

So, thats it. That is the goal. Of course there are a few minor goals along to the way... things like "I would like to have been commissioned 5 times by Christmas." But those are kinda stepping stones I guess. 

A number of things need to happen though. Firstly, I need to sort out my online presence, and maybe take down some older works and what not. 
Secondly, I want to finish those three free sketches that I was supposed to do last year, as long as people still want them? Although college was always busy, it really isn't an excuse. They should have been drawn.

But still, it is nice to have a renewed purpose, and also just as importantly, somewhat of a deadline. May 2016. 

Anyway, I hope those of you that still follow me will come with me on this trip over this next year. If you have any feedback ideas, suggestions or questions, feel free to comment below! 




Just sorting out my DA page and dusting off the cobwebs! :)

Busy with life pretty much. Got a decent job, living on my own finally, and also bought myself a car. Still a geek, though stopped with miniatures (lack of motivation and job taking up my time) but gotten into Magic the Gathering which has consumed my wallet for the most part :P. I was also wondering if you still have msn messenger account or something along those lines? Been trying to get you though that for a long time. Been wanting to talk again to the old crew :).

Yeah I prefer it more for the RPG side of things.

Its still go0d if you can get the right group.

Tho I canned WoW in December. Just found myself logging in to stand in Org all the time. Which is a bit of a waste of cash really lol.
