Ya know, every year, i talk about things i have planed to do as new years resolutions. In the past i've talked about losing weight, i've talked about making more art, i've talked about getting a job. The list goes on and on. And every year I never really succeed. Like...ever...

However, maybe that's my own fault. Maybe i just didn't want it hard enough or have the drive for it. I keep seeing these posts about the year 2014 and the art that people made in it and realized i had almost NOTHING to show for art accept my school stuff. Like i did little to no wok outside of my school stuff. I doodled, yes. Did some small pictures. The only time I really created things were during Nerdacon this year, when I actually tabled and did commissions or when i was in school.

The past few months when i was working my ass off showed me that maybe I need more than just a flimsy promise. That i need more than just a malleable date to finish things by. I need a goal. Something to aim for. So...I've decided that i need to make a goal. Something that wont change. And something i can work with while also creating a body for work for my Jr Review and all my other art stuff.

So! Until September or November, depending on what i have the money for, i will be tabling at ONE con this year. And i want to do the works. I don't want to just do commissions while at the table. I want to sell prints, buttons, and key chains. I want to sit there and watch people and have them buy stuff from me. When i was at nerdacon doing that, i felt AMAZING. It was fun and even though i was there for about 8-10 hours, i didn't care because i enjoyed it and loved the fact i was getting my art out there and DOING something with my trade.

So I will either be tabling in the artist alley of Nerdacon, or AWA this coming up year. I just have to see what i have the money for. And honestly, i don't know if i'll make any money. I don't know if i'll make a profit. And frankly, i don't really care. I need to produce work again. Things i can be proud of. And I'm tired of just posting stuff online where maybe people will see it. I may not be noticed very much at these cons, but at least i'm doing something. It's time to do something with my gift.

With the deadline of these cons, i will HAVE to work. Because if i don't have anything to sell, then the money i just spent will be POINTLESS and i'd been out a LOT of money. And that will be a good bit of motivation for me... XP as sad as that sounds.

So! Expect some work hopefully! I'm gonna do some original work, but also more fan art because i'm preping for the con. Either way, it'll be good to just create work again that doesn't have to have a grade on it. 

Wish me luck, guys! I'm gonna need it!

-Love, Lisha
