It’s hard to believe it’s already 2018… where did the time go? In any case, happy New Year everyone! 2017 was a great year for art for me — I attended my first craft fair, completed Inktober, and explored a number of new media, including charcoal, pastel, and coloured pencils.
As fun as 2017 was, I have a feeling 2018 is going to be even better! I have a bunch of projects planned, and am planning on attending lots more craft fairs. I am also hoping to get more serious about studying art; I have a bunch of books that I’ve bought or have been gifted to me and I’ve never really sat down and gone through them with any dedication. Another thing I would like to start this year is a blog about my art — something I sort of did a few years ago but never really kept up.
I’m not entirely sure what I’m going to write about on here. My finished pieces I post on my website, as well as my Instagram and Patreon pages (you’ll see more in-depth blog posts there too!), so I think this blog will be more about my process, and how I do things as an artist. We’ll see, and if you have any suggestions or things you’d like to hear from me, let me know!
I’ll leave you with this picture of my dog being very patient while I painstakingly set up all my art supplies on his dog bed. Poor Mallow! Happy New Year and I hope 2018 is an awesome year for everyone!
