Hi, my name is Patty and I love art. I was known as "keirajo" over on Fur Affinity, but I have chosen to leave that site permanently as of April 30, 2015. About my username..."Keira-Jo" was an Echidna female I created for a Sonic the Hedgehog fan club back in 1996. When the fan club disbanded I used her in fan-fiction I wrote. She's been a big part of my life for a very long time, so I often use her name or image as my avatar when I am online anywhere.
I hope that everyone has a great holiday season and that it is as quiet, perfect and peaceful as you would like it to be. :D
2018 is coming to a close and I need to start focusing on things to do better in 2019. Pen-palling is one..............I've failed so bad on this front since my mom died. I used to respond to letters in the same week..............now I've been lucky to respond in the SAME YEAR. sigh
rubs back of neck
2019 will feature a new yearly art project--but I'm not going to go straight into another weekly sketchbook thing. I'm going to work on refocusing art and style.................and using up my supplies. wry laugh So, to get rid of all my oversize Bristol comic boards, I'm going to do a monthly "large piece"............ala my Inktober project piece from this year. I'm debating over "random themes" (whatever the heck I feel like) or remaking old and classic pieces of mine. But the first one IS already planned to be a remake of an old piece of work--which seems appropriate for first art of the year. Secondly.............I'm not planning on scanning any NEW pieces of art (unless they are gift art for friends) until I finish the massive backlog in my "to color" digital art folder (you have no idea how much is in there--since like 2015, even!)--except for doing the large, monthly pieces of art.
This way I can do something new and of quality as well as finish up old things. And maybe by summer next year I will be refocused and refreshed on doing brand new things?
Financial refocus is also a big thing on my list--so that I may go to an anime convention with an old friend of mine in April. :) (Let us hope my sister can manage to not get herself into anymore trouble so that I can recover from her antics after TFCon that has my stupid credit card nearly maxed out............)
I hope everyone's holidays go well and you all stay well! I hope you know what you're going to do (or do better) in 2019! And I hope for a lot less stress and more fun for you all. Take care everyone and I'll talk to you in comments, art posts and these journals--as I always do! :D
