AWU 2018 Commission List & Updates!

WELCOME CREATIVES, DREAMERS, AND THE LIKE!

This last weekend I attended Anthro Weekend Utah as firstly the Dealers' Director and a dealer myself! It was great weekend and I had such a wonderful time meeting people. In addition to my own table, I also ran a panel, called A History of Redwall. Additionally, I played a board game I developed called Redwallur with anyone who dropped by and wanted to play with me, and some people even beat me at my own game! It was great! For anyone who was wondering about any of these things, the panel, the board game, etc, please feel free to contact me! I'll be happy to chat!

Secondly, here is the list of commissions now on my to-do list from AWU 2018. I will be working on the order of these as listed here. The completed commissions will also be added to the gallery on this post to keep the commissioners updated on my progress towards their commissions.

Lastly, I am starting school next week! I'm so flipping excited, and worried, a bit nervous I might say! I am going to be working towards getting into a game design and animation degree. It has been a long time dream of mine to achieve, and now, just a week away from taking that first step. Please wish me luck!

Keep Dreamin'!

Monologue of a Fool Album Cover

WELCOME CREATIVES, DREAMERS AND THE LIKE!

I'm rather proud to share this piece done for a commissioner as a cover for their upcoming album! There's not quite an ETA for its release date, but if I find out, I'll be sure to update this post!

Monologue Of A Fool
By Lukia

And in other news...

I got let go from that job I just barely got, so I'm back on the hunt for some employment to supplement my husband's and my journey towards getting a house and getting into school. It has been a bit of a frustrating set back as from what I gather, they let me go due to getting injured on the job. However, all is not lost, and I have a job interview lined up for tomorrow! Really hoping I get it. Though, because I won't be working at the same place as my husband, that brings up another setback, that I'll likely have to get a car for myself so I can get to work, which will deplete our house savings. One step forward, two steps back. BUT I refuse to give up. I know I can get a job, and get past this roadblock.

Otherwise, I am close to wrapping up the last of my commission list, so I will likely be doing some more sponsorships soon! Keep an eye out for that!

Keep dreaming everyone!

Situation Update

WELCOME CREATIVES, DREAMERS AND THE LIKE!

I thought I ought to give my followers an update on my current situation and how it will affect my art so far. I'll try to make it brief.

  • Both my husband and I started a new job today.
    • We will be on grave shifts for the foreseeable future.
    • This will detract from my art time, and how much art I am able to post.
    • I will still do commissions as efficiently as I can in my off time. 
    • I will still work on personal projects as well.
    • Sponsorships will still be available for certain things.
    • Masqfurade's initiation will be put on hold until we get more settled.
  • Speaking of getting settled, we are also looking for a house to move into.
    • When all is said and done, I'll let you know how that goes!
  • Lastly, We are working on getting into school.
    • We have been accepted for the summer semester.
    • I'm trying to determine what I want to do for my degree; a really tough decision.
    • School may also affect my art schedule; it is yet to be determined.

I want to stay connected with my followers throughout these big changes. Because of this, I'd like to know what you'd like to see most from me? Comics? Illustrations? Illustrated music videos? Story time videos? What sounds good to you guys?

 

Edit: March 6th, 2018

So I injured my back the first week on my new job. Of course I would do that. So I have to go to physical therapy. This is going to make my art take longer to finish. As such, those currently on my wait list will be getting a message from me soon to discuss options regarding their commission's completion.

Secondly, I really don't want to stick with this job. I am not someone who can deal with this kind of work apparently. I'm miserable beyond belief doing this. My forte lies elsewhere. I'm trying to find an alternative as soon as possible, so I appreciate your patience while I figure all this out. And get settled. If I end up having to quit, I may fill the interim time with sponsorship portraits to fund a specific project. Which brings me to my next point:

Third, my friend Talon Windstryke and I have been working together and soon I will have a result of that collaboration to show you all! Keep an eye out in the next... Couple hours? Maybe a day? If all goes well 

Love you guys! Keep dreaming!
