Merry Christmas, Readers!

Christmas is only a couple days away but it sure doesn’t look like it outside.  My area got hit by a ton of rain with flash flood warnings.  As far as the forecast looks, there will also be no snow again.  I did get a drafting desk I can probably later use as a light table.  There’s just space issues right now so I can’t set it up.

Anyway, I’ll also give a quick update on how my art is coming along.

Encore is finished!

I also started work on something I’ve titled City Window.

Still a bit of work to go, though…


Lately I’ve also been working in Blender.  I made a logo:

and a still life:

The still life is a little special because the tea set was a high school project in arts class.  I made it hoping my friend Maya and I would be able to use it some day.  That day never came, though, since the majority of it never got glaze fired.  At least now we have our tea.

I graduated from college a couple weeks ago.  It’s weird having so much time on my hands, but I’m making the most of it.

I’m open for commissions if anyone’s interested…  *hint… *hint…

Again, Merry Christmas to everyone and I look forward to seeing some of you at Ohayocon or around!

Back!

I noticed that if I waited six more days, I would not have made a post on this blog in two years.  I decided to make a small switch with how I managed my site and this blog.  While my site (My Portfolio) would focus mainly on my art and projects, this blog would be about announcements, showing progress on work, and other things.
I’m going to take this opportunity to show a work in progress and compare it to my first art post.

I’m expecting the work on top to take a few more hours.  I’ve been working on my speed now that my craft is slowly getting out of the way.
I also still never made that michiyuki I bought the fabric for, but I still have the fabric and plan on making it.  I’m graduating from college (finally!) next week so I should have time.  While I look for a job I’m open for commission.
I’m also attending Ohayocon 14!  This will be my fourth time at Ohayocon in a row.  I’m doing better with each consecutive year, and I’m hoping this year is fairly successful.
All in all, I hope this is the start of something great!
