The Blog is Back!

Okay, so the blog function on the website was awful.  In using it, I found that a blog is what I actually need the most and everything else is just a gadget.  So, here I am again!  I know, you're all so thrilled.  *G*  Feel free to comment!  I will actually know about it now and be able to respond!  (Major problem with website blog.)

But the redesign is pretty, yes?  Yes.  *nods*

So, here's what's up with me.  I'm currently in Texarkana for about the next three months, staying with my fiance's mom and stepfather and saving up for a big move to Washington state.  Austin, TX is as far west as I've ever lived, so I'm looking forward to that new experience.  Plus, I love a good rainy climate. *nods*

I've been working on my line art lately, and I think it's coming along nicely, although I'm still fine tuning it.  Here are some examples of what I've been doing...



I chose fanart because I wanted to concentrate on the line art, and using established characters helps me with that, and I chose Steven Universe for it because the show's made of awesome, obviously.  Also been working on some new coloring techniques, which has gotten me these...


 Both of which are up over at my Threadless artist shop if you're looking for cool t-shirts!

There's still some work to do here, though.  I have to redo my portfolio page, for instance, but I think this is good start!
