Happy New Year!
I feel an odd sense of relief now that 2018 is now behind us. It was a tumultuous year in general. I had no luck on the job front, and I had difficulty financially. Then there was the stark realization I spent too much time optimizing my website and the store, and not enough time creating. I get the feeling it was punishing me for having fun during Christmas in 2017.
Here is to 2019! I am a little nervous but the odd numbered years have been treating me better than the even numbered ones as of late. I have a lot of plans provided I do not mess them up.
My Big Update
My main project today was a long time coming. When I graduated from college in December 2013 my mom got me a sweet graduation present. I got a heavy metal and tempered glass studio table! I was saying for a long time I wanted a light table. With some ingenuity I should be able to make it work as a lightbox.
So, I plan on spending 2019 drafting SWMaC 2, practicing more with traditional media, and working on the animation studies again. I wanted to work on markers and watercolor again, however I didn’t have a dedicated clean and flat surface.
I like that it is in front of a window for natural lighting. Right now I am saving up for a webcam and mount for live drawing! There is $25 to go. I am going to upgrade my RAM after the rent and bills dust settles. My friends will likely take me to Micro Center. From there I can dedicate some remainder to this.
2019 Year Goals
I’m not quite sure how to quantify my goals. My Evolving Pre-order stuff (my illustration lineup) will be completely turned over by this time in 2020. I am going to try making a backlog, because I know me, of comic material It will probably be a weekly or twice a week update schedule. I also want to get through a couple requests or potential commissions, and maybe get some others. I’m not concerned about a follower count, but I would like a few more really interactive ones.
Looking forward to a new roaring 20s! Hopefully no economic crash at the end of it… Bring on the electro-jazz!
