Starting today, and running until October 22, I’m showcasing my work at Aistear Brewing in Bowling Green, Ohio! Ah, my old stomping grounds.
I reached out to the owner and asked if he was interested in showing off my prints. He agreed – and he also offered me a spot in Aistear Con in October. These prints and mini-prints will be on display in their gaming area until the start of Aistear Con on October 22.
Not in the area? Some of these prints (but not all) are also available in my Ko-Fi shop. Some of the prints on the wall are exclusive to Aistear, though (sorry).
That’s all for now! Thank you for your support! Without it, I wouldn’t have gotten this far.
Remember when I set my goals for 2021? Well now’s the time to do a mid-year check-in and see how things are going.
Number 1: Make 5 New Craft Pieces
Are we talking about 5 craft projects TOTAL? Yes! This goal is achieved.
But are we talking about the specific craft projects I wrote for myself to do? No.
See, I wanted to make…
a kitty-sized sweater for BreeBree (why? Because she’s neurotic and wants hugs ALL THE TIME. I thought a kitty sweater would help)…
a patchwork skirt…
a bikini top made from upcycled T-shirts…
a crochet shawl covered in crochet donuts and cookies (why? I was inspired by a shawl I saw in the live-action The Grinch movie)…
and a scrapbook for my graduations. I’ve had these graduation keepsakes for 10+ years and I want to put them in a book instead of a box.
Those first 3? Those are done. I even made 2 bikini tops. The shawl base is also done, but now it needs cookies and donuts.
Number 2: Make 5 Videos that are NOT Live Streams
Honestly, I dropped this goal. Would I love to make animatics? Absolutely. But I need to study how to make animations in Clip Studio Paint. I have no idea what I’m doing.
Number 3: Make 5 Large Prints
I have finished 1 print so far!
Unfortunately, 2 prints had to be put on hold because they need more work than I expected. The Cryptid of Leaves print is more of a time-sink than I thought because of all the details. The Fighting Game roster I want to draw will require more research and character mock-ups.
So 1 print is done. But that leaves 4 left to do.
I have 2 other ideas in mind. Both are for personal projects. We’ll see how that pans out.
Join me in this archived live stream as I draw character art for a new project. In this art stream, I’m drawing for The Character Compendium.
The Character Compendium is a new personal project of mine. It will compile as many character designs as I can fit into one book. With this book, I aim to simplify life for game masters and dungeon masters. Just open the book to any page, take a character, and BOOM! Instant NPC for the players to interact with.
Heck, any of these characters could also be a good jumping-off point for players to make their own characters.
