What kind of Artist am I? (borrowed from Kaiet

5 deviants said An "Idol" Artist - You are an artist I look up to, get inspiration from, and sometimes I wish I had your talent
5 deviants said An Improving Artist - Your talent is obvious, but it is not perfected. There are many things you can fix about your work, but that doesn't mean you aren't wonderful already
4 deviants said A Normal Artist - You are a typical, everyday artist who wants to do their best and I have neutral feelings about you as a person
3 deviants said Other (please comment)
No deviants said A "People's" Artist - You do what everyone WANTS you to do. You tend to work more on things everyone else wants than what you want to. If the community doesn't like it, neither do you
No deviants said A Compassionate, Caring Artist - You are an artist who does what they can to help other people, even if it means putting down everything you're working on to help someone in need. Your art is great, but your heart is greater


Hey All,

I've been busy with life and...... all. *le flop*

So for Anime Iowa this year, I decided to cosplay Matoko Kino (from Sailor Moon) because I was wanting an easier/less hassle cosplay to get around the convention.  Plus one of my friends was selling the top of Matoko's school uniform that was in my size. I have no problem with sewing skirts (I've sewn my own cosplays in the past), so I went ahead and bought the shirt a week or so ago...... and yesterday it came in the mail.

Good News: I can get into it! My friend complained it was too tight in the chest area, and I did not have that problem. Huzzah!
Bad News: The bottom of the shirt is 5 inches too tight for my waistline. I has fluff....lots of fluff. Apparently whoever made the shirt tailored it to be for a bustier girl with a smaller waist. My body type is more of a pear, so I have HIPS. AM I HIPSTR? MAYBE I AM. :P

Despite that, I am not giving up though on this cosplay.....yet. In the two months to con time.... I'm gonna see if I can drop some inches, sooo that means eating healthier and exercising alot, which I'm doing anyway with general farm work and gardening.

When I say farm work, I mean mowing 1 to 4 foot tall grasses/weeds my Grandma's acre orchard with a push mower, because my Aunt didnt get to it soon enough with a riding lawn mower. It's great excercise....till you get to the 4 foot grasses that love to clog a little push mower every two to five min. So far I have about 3/4ths of the acre done, but the rest is tall weeds going to seed, and requires PULLING. Lots...and lots.....of pulling.

Actually that is one of the main reasons why I haven't been on DA very much or working on art as much. Just....gardening and mowing have been taking up my time. Well...that and some of the commissions/card you saw me upload on DA semi recently.

I think I've been spreading myself too thin on multiple projects, so I will probably take more of a Laissez faire approach with getting things done. Will try to not force things or have it on a schedule if at all possible (at least for a month or so). Some things just have to be on a schedule (like a certain commission), but I really need less stress in my life

Anyway, I updated my Art Bucket List (I apparently skipped updating it in April)

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. :)

No problem! I look forward to all of your lovely drawings (although I may not fave all of them). :) Keep it up!
Looks like you have a thing for magical girls, based on what you draw. So do I! I'm in fact making my own series!
