Hi everyone I pretty much died on DA last year though I'm sure I'm not the only person who feels DA in general is just declining with a lot of artists vanishing for long periods or leaving. Anyway I posted hardly anything cos I was busy working on Threads and something else with KitJoYuki we started a side business for cute merch called tea kitty (a merge of our artist names XD) if you're interested in it you can follow our facebook until we set our site and store up which will hopefully be soon. Obviously we won't be posting any of it here cos it doesn't fit into our galleries at all XD. We'll be selling as tea kitty at a lot of UK conventions this year but don't worry were not giving up on selling our regular painted work so you'll still be able to buy our prints at the larger cons here (London and Manchester etc and hopefully online too) but for smaller cons like Telford comic con in February we'll be selling as tea kitty. Whilst 2015 was an unproductive personal art year (understatement) it was a huge success for our artbook threads which we focused on promoting and selling for most of the year.
Working on tea kitty was also refreshing and fun especially because painted art takes me so long I often don't finish or end up hating it or falling into an art block because of it but doing things for tea kitty had none of those problems and we were able to get a lot done. With that said I'm now hoping to do some new art this year because my prints really really need a refresh XD in general I just need some new art especially with my style having hopefully changed for the better and I also want to draw some of my other oc's who never get a look in lol. So that's my goal for this year also to practice more and improve, so its basically the same as every year XD. The good thing about tea kitty is I never hit an artblock due to how easy it was to work on and we got so much done for it so if I do fall into a block I have that at least to help get me out of it and keep me from becoming frustrated or depressed with my work.
I won't post any of the tea kitty work here but may post about the cons we'll be attending where you can still get sketch commissions from us on the day or about pre-orders for some of our products if I feel it needs an extra boost.So with that in mind its been a long time since I last did any features <: as with all features I do rather than just picking artists I like (which would probably be a list of artists you already know) everyone that replies (who is a watcher of mine) will get a feature in the next journal =v=RulesHow to get a feature
- Reply to the journal (must be a watcher)
- I will pick something from your gallery
- you can suggest a piece but if I like something else I'll feature that
- If you'd rather feature a friends work or work you commissioned than your own that's also ok
*Suggestion/feature is void if its a popular piece(1000+ fav)/is in over 20 groups
I will post the feature journal in February so this gives enough time for people to reply if there's not much interest.
