I’ve been visiting relatives, sightseeing, and adjusting to a new place and timezone lately so I can only squeeze in so much time for blogs and vlogs (whereas back home I’d just be working, editing, and posting the days away. Gotta admit that a break like this feels pretty good for the workaholic art soul!).
I actually have a whole backlog of unreleased art, GIFs, and pre-filmed videos for at leastfourvlogs, but it’s the editing and compiling that’s taking the most time! -__- This particular post is one of those backlogs.
Last night’s news about Alan Rickman passing away broke my heart. I thought it was a hoax at first because not much came up when I checked it on Google, but then reliable news websites started confirming this devastating loss.
With only less than a month left until Christmas, one gift you can send your friends, family, and all your loves ones are digital greeting cards. Not only are they inexpensive, but they are a fun and entertaining way to send some holiday wishes to everyone you know regardless of where they are in the world…as long as they have internet access, of course! 😉
With that said, I’m very excited to share with you my latest eCard project for Hallmark eCards!
I did it! I finally took a small step out of my comfort zone and shot, edited, and (gulp) posted my first art/animation vlog on YouTube!
Ever since I started following art YouTubers Leilani Joy and Lena Danyayears ago I’ve always wanted to try sharing a more in-depth look at my work in vlog form, but I either didn’t have the time or the guts to do so (I’m pretty shy). However the more I watched animator YouTubers such as Rebecca Parham, sWooZie, Domics, and Levni Yilmaz, and even non-art YouTubers sharing their passion, the more I kept getting fun ideas for videos (thank God I keep an idea notebook that I can always refer to), so I thought…well why not try this out?
Do you still remember this Unicorn gouache painting I posted a few months back on Instagram? I mentioned on how I wanted to get it scanned so I can turn it into a pattern for my shop, but after the scanned image didn’t turn out as well as I hoped, I decided to digitally recreate my unicorns instead!
