This past week I went to a comic symposium hosted by SAIC where I hoped to learn how other comic artists get their work out there to the masses. It was a panel discussion, which proved to be some what annoying and I really wished they just had one person speak about their experience from A to Z. None the less attending got me thinking about how I have to stop putting it off and start putting my stuff out there via a website and etsy. It was very inspiring to see artists and small time presses be able to devote their day to their art work. I hope that I too will be able to take that leap of faith and through hard work follow in their footsteps.
So I have been thinking of how this blog will change and if I should add new posts of my other work and slim down the fashion component, since that not the whole picture. What do you think?
I don't want this to be just another style/fashion blog. Do we really need more of those? This series started as a way for me to play with and explore my feminine side, which tends to hide after a lifetime of being a tomboy and not wanting to bring attention to myself (anxiety provoking). But some how that focus gets lost when I begin writing about the designers and why I picked each look. Maybe a simple change in what I write will help the readers (all 15, follow if you don't already) take something deeper from these illustrations.
So you are at the start of an adventure. You are a gold card's member of this blog who has been here from the beginning. If I ever make it big I will take you to Australia like Oprah did with her audience. Thanks for sticking around and following as I try to navigate this blog. Stay tuned and any comments, thoughts, or suggestions would be appreciated.
