It has yet again been a very long while since my last update, nearly two years!  Life has not been uneventful in that time and I thought it would be a good idea to put up a journal entry that covers the big news, especially since much of it directly affects my artistic endeavors.  I don't want to spend too much time on this, however (I have art to create!) so I'm just gonna bullet it out :3

  • In February of 2016, I parted ways with my former employer.  shumphrey made it possible to eliminate the need for my day-job so that I could finally make art my number-one focus and build it into a real career Huggle! 
  • On April 1st of that year, I officially entered my 3rd decade of existence as a physically independent lifeform Mwahahahahahahaha! 
  • After lots of research, work, decision-making, contracting, and other unexpectedly difficult efforts, the culmination of my wedding planning was realized in Snohomish County, WA, USA on the day of autumn equinox, 22 September 2016 Floating hearts 1 
  • Starting on the first business day of this year, I finally began working full-time as an artist :happybounce: 

Considering all that transpired in the past year alone, 2017 is not just another chapter in my life.  It marks the beginning of an entirely new book.  There's so much I've left behind, some of it completely unexpected, but now the pathways are clear and I can finally pursue dreams that I nearly abandoned.  It won't be a simple, easy journey, but it's the direction in which I've wanted to head for a good long time.
