I have a stable, yet pretty low income and a regular person schedule and no classes and it's starting to make me feel a little more like an adult.
I'm still struggling with the inner battle of "I am making way too little money" and "This is my first actual chance to hold onto a full time job so I should just calm my tits."
In all of that flip floppy personal conversation, I have bitten the bullet and bought the Adobe Creative Cloud subscription for a year (it is 240 dollars for students right now, not bad) and now I have access to all this great stuff that hopefully I will begin to teach myself. I also downloaded Blender the other day and derped around with it.
The possibilities are endless!
In the meantime, I have also been flip flopping, debating, and questioning my ability to make money as an artist. I have so many things that I like to do and make, but I never know whether anyone else will like them as much.
So this year for Senshi Con (the one and only, tiny anime/game/pop culture convention in Alaska) I will buy myself a table in the artist alley and sell some stuff.
But fret not, if you are not able to come all the way to the frozen north, I have already put my three recent poster designs on Etsy for sale, so please check them out! I would love feedback, questions, or comments on my work and the pricing so I have a better idea of what folks are interested in.
I could plaster the walls of my house with these, but that won't make me any money, so I'd love to get some input.
On a side note, more than half of this summer has been constant rain, so adventures out of town have been difficult. But we did manage to have a good day yesterday and went swimming and paddling around in a lake. I hope everyone is having a great summer as well!
