- I am back for the summer! But then in October I'm going to Japan for 3 months YEAH IKR?? EEEEE >w<
- A huge thank you for all the new faves and even watches during my absence. There is a feature for my newest 10 watches at the bottom of this journal!
- If you think I owe you art and it's not here:[link]
(the shout box) let me know!
- I now have an artwork tumblr! [link]
- I now have artwork on display in a zoo and the childrens book I made as a teaching tool for them may be published for sale! *fingers crossed*
So yes - Japan! It's kind of my dream to go and study in Japan, and I have also always wanted to go to Hokkaido (I have been to Japan on holiday before but we didn't go that far up.) It is with my university, and as there is only one place for the exchange I was very lucky to get it *_*
It still doesn't feel real. There is a lot of organisation that still needs to happen, but because I am now back home it all has to be done over email which means that it is taking FOREVER TAT
As it will be winter, and winter is waistcoat-season for me, I shall make it my mission to go around Japan looking as stereotypically romanticisedly British as possible <3
I am sorry that my hiatus was so prolonged, I had an incredibly large amount of freelance work which of course is wonderful and good, however this past year has been so stressful. It has made me decide that I never want to do freelance full-time. I need a regular shop-job or something to keep me sane. You see - if I work particularly hard in my job (I work in an art and craft shop) then I am tidying up lots, running around for customers, going through orders quickly etc. If I work particularly hard on freelance illustration work then I am sitting for longer than I would like at my computer working, or at a desk hunched over with an aching neck or back. I had to pull so many all-nighters over the course of the academic year just to get work done on time - I even had to keep missing the only extra curricular club thing I did (except pole, but that doesn't count P: )
Pretty sucky, but now that it is largely all finished I can lie back and relax TuT If you go to Marwell wildlife in Hampshire, England then you can see a bunch of penguins I drew around the new exhibit. I hope they publish my book for sale also : D The pirate website will hopefully be up soon too.
I have 50 images to post, so there is lots of look forward to, including cosplays, doll photos and photos of cake! Aside from photos the majority of the work I will be posting is university-related because I've had no time to do anything else x3
Also, to those who are recent watchers of mine I do have a request line-up thing:
Check it out yo!
I've nothing else to update upon apart from that I now have an obitsu named Mimi mark 2, I've tweaked my journal a bit and updated that top image and I fulfilled my childhood dream and went to see The Lion King in London last night *_* Simply breathtaking.Features
In thanks for all the faves and watches I have received during my absence I would like to feature my last 10 watchers <3
