Hi, I'm Joan. I like drawing things that are of the following: colorful, girls, and cute things. I also draw comics every now and then, as well as experiment with other mediums (animation, jewelry making, doll making, etc etc). ^_^

Anyway, this deviantart account has been spanning my artwork since 2005(ish), so if you go through my gallery you'll see the progression of how my drawing style has developed. :)

Hey all!

I'm never really sure how to start these journal entries when I want to do more art....but life eats up a couple of months worth of time with work, stress, and responsibilities. D:

ON THE BRIGHTSIDE! I'm alive. .....which may annoy someone out in the universe somewhere. XD Anyway....

My life overall has been fairly okay. It's had it's ups, downs, spin arounds, and all that fun. I've been a little more dedicated the past two months to setting up my art buisness, rather than keeping it a hobby.  The kinds of responsibilities I'm dealing with involve getting artwork ready to be printed (wtf is a bleed? do I need to stab my pictures?!), saving up funds to afford the printing (I've actually been doing this for a little over a year), creating buisness cards, creating a "studio" name (that isnt taken according to google), applying for a tax permit....yeah all that "fun" stuff.

The main reason why I'm focusing on selling my art is that I will be selling my artwork again at AnimeIowa (yaaaaay), but I wanted to sell a variety of items rather than a select number. It may increase sales...or maybe not. Who knows. It beats doing nothing with my art. XD

Oh, one more thing before I forget....the middle of June I submitted two of my artworks into the Iowa State Fair. This past Friday, I found out that both of my works passed the jury (I'm assuming to weed out the not so nice works?) and will be displayed at the Iowa State Fair this August. :3 Sooooo yeah, another thing to scramble to get ready to go. :/ But it also means a trip to Des Moines (and I haven't actually been in Des Moines since 2005?), and art promotion! :D

Anyway, I gotta get back to work. I'll probably post more new art AFTER the end of July, or whenever life decides to give me a break. Or maybe I'll actually take the time to photograph my Kanzashii for AI... XD


P.S: I'm still checking my DA account a couple times a week....I just dont know what to say when I have no new shiny art to post. :/

P.P.S. I know this happens a lot in Japanese anime series (and even dramas?!) but I NOTICED when I was researching Sakura outfits for my versions of Sailor Sakura....that Sakura is kinda flipping the bird. o____o
