2014 Let's Go Victory!

It's that time of year where we make a pact with our inner selves and decide where we're headed for the next year. Basically, resolution time! XD Last year I was happy with my progress art wise as well as socially wise. I took in 4 more commissions than 2012 which was a plus. But still nothing to quit the day job over.

I got a brand new art tablet from my bf and daughter for Christmas and I can hardly wait to start using it. :D Also I've met and became involved with a lot of great people threw the various fandoms I'm a part of. Where as I'd normally shy away from any contact with anyone. I've attended a lot more event than I had in any other year and I think I've grown because of it.

For this year I want to maintain the same height as last year in Art, Fitness and Social activates plus MORE!



Goals for this year in Art

Reach 40+ finished pieces
* Get caught up in WWOEC art (I think there are about 20+ I've missed out on)
* Re-Visit some of the ideas in my monster girl challenge series push them further without a daily time limit and turn them into print quality images. (30ish different pictures)
Create 3-5 solid Cosplays
* Re-Visit steam punk Jem idea
* Zhaan from Farscape
* An Ice look Zombie character (maybe Viking looking)
* Original Dragon-like Character
Sell some originals/take more commissions

January

Jan 1st: Brought in New-years with a bang at a Fandom Rave. If you've never been to one or don't have one in your area START ONE! Lots of local Scifi peeps got dressed up and partied till dawn. I was a lonely geek on New years for years before I found this crowd. I Met a few new people and had tons of fun. :D My bf won a prize for his Costume (which I put together for him) AND there was a minion there I knew. Great start I'd say!

. . .

Jan 6th: I won 2K and an In Blot for my name being picked for the Menewshan Minute. :D NICE!

Jan 13th: Went out for lunch with the bf. Ended up at a romance shop called Love Nest. Bought a fluffy new black boa and some 20s/30s inspired sexy silk tights. PERFECT for my flapper Costume I'm making for next month. I Got invited to four events and they're all on different weekends so I can go to all of them. (That never happens) :D February is shaping up to be a party month for me. XD I can't wait to meet more people. Whee!

Jan 14th: I went to my first larp. :D Different than the table top I normally do. It seems interesting plus I can have fun with my other hobby...GROWN UP DRESS UP AKA CosPlay. XD No time table as to when I'll create my first character though.

Jan 15th: Found the perfect feathers for my flapper Costumes head dress! Now to make it. :D

Jan 17th: Went out for dinner and then to an old friends house for some D&D. It's been a while. :) We started a new campaign. I'm playing a Teifling berserker and I might take a few levels in cleric as well. We'll see how it works out.

Jan 18th: Found the perfect material for my Zhann Cosplay for only $15 for 8 yards of a material that was 5.99 a yard in the fabric shop!! YAY Curtains in thrift shop material finds! I'm super excited now for this. Also a ton of black beads were found at the same place for my Flapper head piece idea. My bf cooked me a yummy dinner and now we're both doing art things. :D

Jan 22nd: I finished my first art piece for this month...not a good start since I need to do 3.5 a month in order to reach my goal of 40 BUT at least it's a start.



Jan 31st I got the other 2 pieces and my costume done just in time for February! :D We saw some fireworks for new year on our way to a D and D game. It was a fun night. XD Whoo! Looking forward to February.

February

February 1st: My Flapper Costume was a success at the social! I got tons of complements. This is a great start to the lunar new year! The door people thought I was part of the dance trope...and the dance troupe recruited me for the rest of the night for the demonstrations. XD It was a rip roaring Social scene. 1920s themed Social FTW! For the first hour there was a swing dance lesson and the rest of the night our toes were a taping to Jazz and swing. I got to share it with my mom and bf.

. . . . . .

February 2nd:I'm having a relaxing Imbolc at home. Lighting lots of candles and cleaning the house. Yay Mother Bridget Goddess of hearth, home and creative fire! Her song warms the winter and her many animals form come from the earth. :D

February 8th: I bought all the bras from studio 54 just in time for the valentines day event. :D

February 9th: This first week was a great week for art. :D I got 5 images done! Three of them were for various Menewsha Contests. I'm excited to start work on my Mardi Gras mask and costume this upcoming week. I'm trying to cram as much art as possible into this week so I can go post crazy in the upcoming V-day event. :D Plus I also have a Social planed next friday.

. . . .

Feb 14: I double dated to a V-day Social with my sister/her beau. We had a lot of fun and danced all night. My bf gave me a really cute diamond heart necklace. I haven't took it off since. Such a great night.

. . . . . .

Feb 15th: I went to a comic convention and bought 4 graphic novels for $20. When normally they're $25 each. then we meet with friends for dinner. It was a nice night out and I was still in the glow of Vday. :D

Feb 25th: I managed to finish the last bit of art for my art goal this month! Yay! Happy!
