Yeeeahh! First journal entry of the year. And what's it gonna be about this time, oh, yeah, I'm on Instagraaaam. Finally. My brothers have been pestering me for a long time now to join the site. So yeah, you can find me there now. I'm artcraawl, with two a's because I got tired of my name being mixed up with art crawl the event. www.instagram.com/artcraawl/ *sigh* Good times.
Now to talk about plans. I'm thinking of doing a bit more interactive stuff here, you know, stuff that you guys can have a bit of a hand in. I've already got an idea. Hopefully I'll get to do it soon. I can dream, right?
Commissions are something I'm going to be starting also. I'll have a price list up soon for anyone that's interested.
Another thing I would love to do is Youtube videos. Seriously, guys, guys, I want to make videos. Yeah, I could do it now, but I really want to make them with audio. Cause I love videos with audio and commentary from the artist. I don't know, it's just nice to know a bit about what they were thinking when they made the piece, and get to know a little bit about them, just like their personality, what techniques they use, and whatnot. But I don't have a microphone at the moment so that's going to have to wait.
So yeah, in short; interactivity, Youtube, commissions, plans. Lawd Jesus halp me.
Last year was a bit slow for me. I think I drew less in that year than I did in any of the previous ones. Which to be truly honest for some reason isn't all that discouraging cause if you see those improvement meme thingys you realize that everyone has those years where they kind of hit a slump. Sometimes it's one year, sometimes it's more. But you know, regardless of whether the slump is over for me or not I'm gonna try to make it work and make art. And I'm not going to let the decline in Deviantart's activity, Donald Trump getting votes, people hating the new Star Wars, or anything like that stop me.
It may only be fourteen days into 2016 but I hope it's treating you kind and you all still have a passionate, positive outlook on the days of the year to come. If not, or you never had one to begin with I really hope that that changes for you and things start to look nice and coolio. Happy belated New Year, guys. May it be more awesome than we could have hoped.
