Oh gosh, please, never feel nervous if you’d like to send messages! I absolutely LOVE hearing from you, though I can be a bit shy, myself. So I know what you mean. BUT SERIOUSLY. Seriously. You’ve always been one of my most favorite people in the WHOLE WORLD EVER and I really cherish the fact I can call you a buddy. muahmuah♥
First off, THANK YOU so much! Gosh, but about how I got from one point in art to where I am now… well, if I wanted to answer this easily, I’d just have to be 100% honest and say it’s all due to my partner. He’s been my best friend for going on six years but we’ve been official since January 15, 2012.
He’s a talented artist and the best support I’ve ever had. He encourages me to do what I’m really passionate about. He sees what I enjoy and he gives me that push I need so I can indulge in it. To be brutally honest, I’ve had a lingering uneasiness with my own art due to several unsavory people from my past. So I held back a bit and worried a tad over my work and actions. My partner fully understands and has really just been my knight in shining armor… well, more like my Court Jester who knows how to make me incredibly happy.
Other than my absolutely amazing support, really, I just do what feels great. I have very specific tastes when it comes to visuals. I love interesting shapes, be it a human body type, architecture, nature, etc. I focus on things I really enjoy staring at, the little things that catch my eye, then I try to interpret that into my own work. There are so many artists who inspire me but really, what helps me out most is that I’m heavily inspired by the world around me. I’m no longer holding back and I’m just trying to genuinely have a wonderful time with art and cartooning. So I suppose I let go of my weaknesses in art, trying to impress those who don’t matter, and I’m just working on impressing myself with how absolutely THRILLING art can feel. Sometimes, I go and look at my more recent pieces, and I just have to say “wow” because it’s hard to believe I’m doing this full throttle. It feels awesome and other folks seem to love it, too! I’m just absolutely amazed with all the positive feedback I’ve received and how often I’ve heard that my work is actually inspiring OTHERS! Just gosh! When I think about it, I get that adrenaline rush from just being so excited for myself and everyone else!
Seriously, you only have one life. Make the most of it!
I hope this wasn’t too run-on and full of too much GUSHING! Aahaha! ♥
WOAH, you’re thanking ME?! You’ve got to be kidding! Your work is just WOW! Thank YOU so, so much! ♥

* May be going to the doctor soon. I haven’t been feeling so well lately. There has been more and more pain within my side.
Seriously, again, I absolutely LOVE this. I’m so bad with keeping up on Tumblr. haha, gosh, this is so great! THANK YOU AGAIN! ♥
This show is still one of my favorites forever.
Have a doodle, inked in Manga Studio Ex… I have no idea what I’m doing. ha!
I’m sorry I am so slow with responses, I hope I can eventually get to most of these!
OHMYGOSH, thank you so much! Wow, I’m so, so flattered! I’m happy to hear my silly work can “pop” like that, I’ve heard this a few times, actually, and wow, I’m so glad my art can be eye catching! AAAaahahaha!
Also, omg, today is his BIRTHDAY! We’re going out to the art store later so he can pick out some things. (since he’s an incredible artist and his traditional media skills are just like WOW) It’s gonna be SO FUN and I think some much needed sushi is in store after that. It’ll be the best day ever! ♥
Also, right as I posted this Nero’s “Me & You” started playing on my radio station. OMG.
I mean, art takes time and energy from my daily life, but trading is always great. I’m all for arting up a storm for small things, so it feels fair. At least feed me or entertain me, please, it’s just the nice thing to do for your artist buddy.
Seriously, wow, I am so happy to hear this! Knowing my work can inspire others to have a wonderful time with art is just absolutely THRILLING! THANK YOU.
You are so sweet. Also, I love the term “fabulous” I just don’t get to hear that enough in my daily life! ♥ THANK YOU AGAIN!
