Hello All!

As you can tell by some of the drawings (paintings?) that I've been uploading recently that I'm done with the Hiatus that I mentioned ....oh about 2 weeks ago. So I was kinda right...but not really.  I got done with the 3 very...large....projects a lot quicker than I thought I would (well, I do worry/stress out for no reason sometimes...). I was going to do a 4th large project, but I decided I have enough to do before AnimeIowa (a convention I attend at the end of July) that I should preserve the little sanity I have left to finish my cosplay(s). 

Since I'm still preparing for the convention that I'll be attending NEXT weekend (not this weekend) I will probably not be posting much art either. Who knows, I may work on some watercolor to ease the chaos and insanity...but I will be very busy (more so than usual). I'm attempting to sell some of my prints of my artwork at the convention to see if anyone is interested in my work. Soooo...we shall see. 

So one of my large projects that I completed last week, was an entry for a forum art contest....and it won 3rd place (Murphy's Law)! I'm pretty excited, which also means more $ for stuff or food at the convention. :) (Smile) I'm also planning on entering some work for the Art Show. I wish I had something a little more recent than some of my nearly a year old work, but hey I'll work with what I got. 

Prior to con, I splurged and bought stuff I've REALLY wanted for a while . I've been rocking out to my brand spanking new BABYMETAL CD as I've been drawing these projects (I actually a fan of Akatsuki and Headbangeeeeerrrrr! now since I've bought the album). I think I mentioned awhile ago that I bought the Sakura Clow Book wallet, but I also got a star key necklace for my ccs cosplay....which I'm still trying to decide if I'll wear this year. I dont want to wear/use them because they are sooo pretty and shiny! Although when I was wearing it the other day, some of my friends mistook the key from sailor moon, not CCS. :/

Oh, for those wondering if my highschool teacher ever wrote back to me regarding Simpler Times and a Simpler Place He did write me back! He LOVED the picture, and now has it framed in his house. Although I waited a little too long to call him due to life (BAAAH LIFE!), but I finally got around to calling him, and we made plans to meet up for coffee/supper. It was fun talking to him about some of the behind the scenes in highschool, college adventures, and also how things are going in his life. He's in the process of writing a book about the place where he grew up (the barn that I painted), and possibly using the painting as part of the cover of his book. :) (Smile) Although when we got on the topic of me "selling my art" he wasnt thrilled at the prices I've sold my artwork in the past, nor that I've "given up" and hide it on an obscure DA account. >_>;;;

Thus the re-beginning of trying to sell my art. Oh this could end badly, but hey why not? I've had friends/family asking for prints, or how much I charge for a commission. SOooooo, might as well. But I really need to raise my prices (or figure out something that doesnt involve me getting paid pennies or less per hour...). If you have any suggestions about pricing art (or any articles of the like), please pass it my way. ^^

Also, thanks to those who voted in the poll! It makes it easier to choose artwork to show at the artshow. :) (Smile) <3

Anyway, I hope all of you are enjoying summer and are keeping cool!

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. :)
