I'm Noki, a young silver-phase fox and mother of a little toddler. Naturally, he keeps me quite occupied for time but I've been doing art for as long as I've identified as a furry (10-odd years) and will continue to do so until I can no longer. I'm a western Canadian and hate our winters! I do art by commission as a supplement income, and most enjoy (and excel at) bringing other people's characters and visions to life - which is why I do a lot more commission work than personal. I consider myself a jack of all trades and love to work and play with all sorts of different mediums.
I enjoy answering questions and chatting to anyone who behaves maturely, no matter how old or young. :) While I don't do a lot of conversation starting myself, I do enjoy a good discussion!
ALL my characters are not for public use.
ASK if you ever want to feature any of my characters in your art, writing, or anything else.
I use Paypal's invoice system to receive payments to protect you and I.
BEST FORM OF CONTACT
I am also available through Skype and Windows Messenger for business contact only.
For all commissions, watches and comments! Your support means the world to me!
That's about as blunt as I can say it. I'm retiring from art.
It serves me absolutely no joy anymore, and only makes me miserable and frustrated - whether I'm doing it for myself or someone else. It's become a chore, and I don't want to do it anymore. Maybe some day I'll pick it up again, but at this time in my life I'm simply just not interested in the slightest. My inspiration and delight in art has been deteriorating for the last 6 years give or take ... and it's down to the ashes now. No amount of exploring or attempts to inspire myself are working anymore, so ... I need to stop kicking dead horses and come to terms that it is currently not a part of my life. I hope someday I will find pleasure in it again.
Sorry to everyone I got excited about the art. :( It was my last attempt to encourage myself to learn to love it again, but it didn't work. I will not be completing any of these.
I will still be around my galleries to keep up with the folks I watch and if by some chance I do something creative, I'll post it. But unless you message me personally, I'll probably be very quiet.
In other news, I have a midwife (yay!) and I hope I will be able to heal my previous birth experience. We also made a deal with the local motel trading labor and cash to weather the winter there, in one of the larger rooms. That's about 7 months living in a motel ... but quite honestly it's an upgrade from my little camper! At least we'll have reliable electricity and hot, running water ... you take all these things for granted until you make the decision to learn to live without them. As far as I see it, we'll be living the winter in luxury... lol.
In spring, we'll be moving that camper out of the yard and into the bush and winterizing it, combining it with a second camper and cutting holes in them to make some kind of 2-camper cabin frankenstein.
Would anyone be interested in following such an adventure? I can keep up with journals and pictures for folks who are curious about alternative lifestyles and making the best of what you have. It's going to be a very fun challenge, I think!
