Hello everyone, how are all of you? I figured I should show that I have not abandoned this account, just that real life has taken a less-than-pleasant turn and so my enthusiasm to post new work has waned considerably (and tumblr...it shares A LOT
of blame here). To start, I had gotten a wonderful graphic design job for a local start-up magazine...that lasted 3 weeks. Long story short, they let me go because I was unable to keep up with the workload but
they love my designs so I'm working for them in a reduced capacity doing freelance. Which in itself is great but is unreliable as a steady income. So it forced me into retail work which I'll be starting next week. This leaves very little room for commissions so that is on hiatus for the time being.
I do have some good news though! I have been chosen as one of the artist's for the 2014 USxUK Calendar and am doing a small image for June (there will be both a regular sized calendar for download and a small version for mobile/tablet use...at least that's how I understand it). My next task is to decide on a theme and I've narrowed it to three:
1) Treasure-hunting mermen (a nice little spin on the general "summer" theme :3 )
3) Possibly something for LGBT Pride Month, which is June. (Although I worry about alienating those who don't ship Alfred and Arthur as lovers, such as myself, but a large number of the fandom does...I don't want to do something just because it'll get me "fandom cred" or whatever)
To be honest I have a pretty good idea which one I want to do, but I'm interested to hear what you guys think
Anything else I should think about? Or is one of these definitely one you want to see? I'll be deciding around mid-week which theme I'll do but I'll keep it a surprise til the calendar's out
Til next time! And thank you guys for all your continued support, faves, watches and comments!
