Been a good couple of days since the last update but making time for it tonight.
Hello everybody last Saturday was a busy and productive day because it was the Crafty Muthas i had mentioned once or twice about. Un like the UK pony con Buck I did not make a lot of money but still broke even with the equipment and tools i needed to sell my various works but i exchanged contacts with a lot of people (some I knew from years ago old friends really) who were interested in my caricature cartoon work i started doing recently. And i sold off a lot of my old art from when i was 9 and 10 as that was received really well. I was utterly surprised at how many young adorable kids were bronies too i had one young girl there throw a lot of 1p coins on my table for a pinkie Pie and Princess Luna print which just made my day. And just talking to them about Best pony was marvellous and made me realize that there are lots of kids who love ponies as well as us crazy obsessed adult fans. Couple other things to say about the event, I have been invited to three other potential events this December to show case and sell my art, which is exciting. Some of it is for charity. I still have quite a few commissions to do online but I hope a lot of the people who took my cards will come back for a cartoon I want to keep myself as busy as possible over Christmas I tend to get lazy near the end of the year.
About the Graphic design job……yeah… it may be temporary until Christmas and I do not want to put any information or twitter rants out there. Lets just say its been a good experience and I have improved on my design skills since I started there 8or 9 weeks ago. But come next year it would be best for me to find a better graphic design studio.
Some of you may have noticed an increase in daily devations this is because I have realized why certain YouTube’s last longer then others I watch. CONTENT and lots of it, They upload a video a day and get more views and hits even if the creator despises/hates his her video. I am sure this principle can be applied to DA so I have made a vow to myself to try and upload something each day to keep that flow of creativity going and never get bored again (which will be impossible at some point since I am human and not machine). Since this Sunday I have taken a break from DA to consternate on other important matters like my finance and YouTube subscriptions. I went shopping all day on Monday so I was extremely tried as well.
I do have commissions to attend to as well.
Art should be about Quality not quantity but I feel that my work is getting to a better and higher standard with all this creative pressure I put on myself to keep Jowybean content going.
I tend to start pieces then never finish them but that’s all changing and I am finding myself completing illustrations and sketches then leaving them in my scrap folder. Illustration Friday challenges have been great artistic experiences as my own style of illustration is starting to show.
Big thing next Saturday apart from ponies
I am vendoring at the local craft fair Crafty Muthas Sat23rd in my local church. Preparation has been underway for the fair since last week all my prints and Xmas cards I designed have arrived and will be uploaded after the fair and yes some of them are pony related so stay tuned for those beauties. I am throwing in some BUCK prints and prints of my old art that got me started on the path to illustration). I have such an amazing story on how I got started as a young artist but I should save that for another day not enough energy to type it all out today lol also I am not a big head or Trixie lol.
Usually I would be going to the big comic con up in Leeds called Thought Bubble but to save time and money for my U.S con plans for next year. I am missing it this year a little sad about it obviously. But I have a bright creative future ahead: excited: and want to keep the distractions to a minimum if possible I still have not touched GTA 5 in weeks or caught up with my YouTube subscriptions.
I started livestreaming recently and I plan to do more in the coming weeks. My first experience was very positive, did not shut up for a whole three hours I love to talk sometimes folks if you know this blog you understand what I mean.
Because of all these shenanigans I have postponed the development on my Jowy web comic and Humanise.com, which I am a little disappointed to stop But I have to concentrate on the markets I am currently involved in to break into something then nothing. Please still support and check out the projects on my DA account we will return to them soon enough it's not dead.
Plus I am making the effort with illustration Friday again so you can always see my zany illustration style there.
Season 4 of ponies is starting around the same weekend as Crafty Muthas exciting stuff so do not surprised to see the occasional pony drawing uploaded . the fandom is going to explode all over the internet and I will be helping in the spread XD. Just kidding …..OR AM I
Anyway jowy has more art to create so I will bid you all a Good Day.
