Yeah, I need to stop counting days.  I keep forgetting to actually update this and it’s just messy. So I’m stopping with the counting of the days. I’m about a quarter through the Typography Workbook and oh my god, I’m learning so much. Seriously, my designs have like improved a thousand folds.  The downside of this is now I’m super parnoid about my typesetting and kerning. It takes me longer to finish because I’m nitpicking over every piece of type.  Now, I did a design for a Harry Potter inspired book cover and Oh my god it took me forever, but it came out so well. Seriously, I love it and it’s the best so far.


I need to work more on having more than one subject in my compositions which is going to be so hard let me tell you. Also, apparently I’m blowing up tumblr, because my book cover for ‘Red Queen to Overwatch’ went viral last week.  It’s like at 65 notes on tumblr, and 157 kudos on A03. It just blows my mind.


I also plan to do some articles on this blog, other than my personal whinging.  I also want to branch out into wallpapers (which you would think wouldn’t be so hard to do but it is). Oh! And I’m very close to getting my first paid commission *bounces in my seat* It’s a fanfic commison, and I was very leery of taking money to do fanfic book covers, because that shit can be beacon for lawyers to go after me, and I really don’t need that type of drama in my life.


However, this can be like my foot in the door to being a paid artist.  So I’m very excited, and I hope this comes to fruition *keeps fingers crossed*.
