Musings of Paint and Pizza // an art dump

Whaddup, humans.The last time I did an art post was… an embarrassingly long time ago. (Thirteen months, to be exact.) The amount of art I’ve done since then is also… well, embarrassing. I haven’t arted much. Must be covid’s fault.(When in doubt, blame covid. Every irresponsible decision I’ve ever made is covid’s fault.)Flipping through my [...]

A Beast of Inhuman Author Prowess // aeterna + ramblings + writerversary + snippets + art + all the stuffs

Well hello, my minions! It’s been a while since I mentioned my novel in progress, Aeterna, and some people (AKA me) were beginning to wonder if it fell off the face of the earth or was eaten by wargs or came to some other such hideous end. Folks, I have good news! Aeterna wasn’t eaten [...]

The Elf Returneth // resurrections + resolutions + a rad new decade

The Elf Returneth // resurrections + resolutions + a rad new decade

Before I welcome myself back and gush about the new year, I'd like to issue a formal apology for using the word "rad" in my post's title. Do I like the word rad? No. Is it a redundant word that should be eradicated (*coughs* eRADicated... okay now I hate myself) from the English language? Absolutely. [...]

The Great Art Metamorphosis // how my drawings have changed over the years

Hello, folks! The other day, I decided to flip through an old sketch book of mine, one from aaaaaall the way back when I first got serious about drawing, dated 2014. The result? The result was me dragging forth all my finished sketchbooks and lining them up on the floor to compare style and improvement. [...]

Brush Pens, British Chaps, and Star Wars// another art dump

Well hello, my minions! It's been quite some time since I've posted any art, and the main reason for this is I haven't DONE any art. NaNoWriMo took center stage, and after that... *mysteriously swirls robe* Who knows? (Which is a fancy way of saying I'm a human train-wreck who doesn't know how to organize [...]

Of Characters and Concept Designs: The Artistic World of Aeterna

Of Characters and Concept Designs: The Artistic World of Aeterna

The sun is bright, the wind is cold, and the strange Sarah creature has entered into Week #2 of NaNoWriMo. Surprisingly, all of her primary psychological functions are still mostly intact. Key Word = Mostly. Aeterna hit 80,000 words a couple days ago, and that in itself is enough to blow all my psychological functions [...]

Elves, Evolution, and a Very Confused Mother—another art dump

Elves, Evolution, and a Very Confused Mother—another art dump

You guys know that people sometimes pay me to paint things, right? As in, art isn't just a hobby, but a business. They get an authentic, hand-painted portrait. I get money. Everyone wins. And when you're lucky enough to have your art teacher's complete and zealous support, the odds of being a multi-millionaire by age [...]
