Happy new year everyone!! … three weeks later. So many things have happened in such a short time. My life has changed dramatically since December, because of losing a very loved family member. I’m still very sad about the loss, but if anything, it’s reminded me of just how much time we have on this earth, and that we need to make the most of it. It’s my goal this year to finally make that [perilless] jump into supporting myself completely with my art alone. I know it’s not going to happen in the next week, but it’s my goal to be doing it by the end of the year. Which means, kicking into high gear to produce things for the portfolio.
This site will also be moving in the future. Remember how ajamoore.com used to be a redirect to this site? Well that’s going to change within the next month or so– meaning ajamoore.com will be my main site, and ye olde ajamandtoast.net being a redirect. Hopefully, the switch will change without much notice. If you want to know when it happens, keep an eye on my twitter, since I am pretty much attached to it, and I’ll keep my feed updated when I do it. It also means if you have this blog bookmarked, you need to update it.
I’m in the process of rescanning some of the older pieces, and getting much higher res versions of my illustrations, which will take me a bit, and has to be snuck into illustration time and Dragon Age marathons. Because, priorities, right? Just kidding. I just finished Inquisition the other day, and restarted Origins, but I’m doing a much much slower playthrough, and worked out a deal with myself that for every two hours of illustration work I do, I get an hour of DA. It’s been working out pretty well, seeing as if I want to play, I have to work, so it’s incentive to get off my butt and draw!
Oh, and did I mention my studio is finally all finished?
There’s still a few things here and there to fix (like the curtains…), but the majority is done! I am so happy and relieved to finally have this ready. It’s a great little room for me work in, and everything I need is at my fingertips, instead of spread out amongst a bunch of containers spread throughout the house. So much easier.
Here’s to the new year! May it be totally awesome and filled with new arts!
