She’s going to grow up fine.
So, I graduated! And I have a job lined up! (and not just a summer one!) So I’m maybe an adult now?? Is that how it works??
Here’s me from my first day of school and my last. Overall, it’s been a good four years. My art has gotten a million times better and while I still have a ways to go, I feel good about where I am now. NSCAD has been pretty good to me and Halifax and the people in it have been even better.
Thank you <3
I’ve been so busy getting things ready for the end of school + the JET Programme, that I’ve been neglecting my drawing. To get back into the swing of things, I drew a bunch of pictures I had saved to my computer and coloured a few others too. I’ve really been missing it.
asked: Hi! I just got accepted into the JET Programme and I am really excited! I was wondering if you have any general advice for me. Also, one specific question: I am also a person who makes comics and I was wondering how you found the workload? Are you able to still create a decent amount of stuff or are the hours too long/too draining?
I’ve never been the most energised and productive cartoonist, so maybe I’m not the person to ask. If you’ve worked a job and drawn comics in the evening before, you’ll be able to do so again on JET. For me, the first few months were totally exhausting, but as I get more and more used to the job, I’m able to slowly add more and more extra bits to my lifestyle.
I recommend staying at least a couple of years. It depends on your situation, but most likely, in your second year you can repeat and re-use all or most of the lessons and materials you did in your first. That’ll free up a lot of energy and time, for creative projects at home and for studying Japanese at work! That’s my plan, anyway; we’ll see how it goes.
Congratulations and good luck. If you end up in the vicinity of Tochigi prefecture, drop me a line!
Thanks for answering :)
I keep forgetting to post this!
Here is my microGallery show! The microGallery is the size of one standard brick (actually, it’s just the space where a brick used to be in a wall), so everything here is very, very tiny. The show’s name was Habitat.
It’s finished! For now, at least!
If you’re having problems reading it on tumblr, because of sizing, try it out over here!
EDIT: OH NO, I UPLOADED IT OUT OF ORDER. I AM NOT A CLEVER WOMAN. IT IS FIXED NOW.
Reblogging this one for the same reasons: added a cover and cleaned up some mistakes. Enjoy!
A short comic for class. I plan on continuing it later!
Reblogging because this now has a cover and I fixed some issues and cleaned up the pencils.
I’m trying to make a repeating pattern for the first time in my life and I am so confused. I’ve been looking up tutorials, but all I’ve found is how to set them up in photoshop and I’m more interested in finding design help. I don’t want there to be such obvious trails between the elements (how you can trace down a zig zag of white hats, etc.), but I also want the hats to alternate places with the stars.
Basically, I am posting this as a cry for help!
Anybody know anything about pattern making or any good resources of their design?
