What a strange year. In spite of battling some pretty intense anxiety and depression for most of 2021, art still got made, and things still got done; in addition to Patreon, I ran an online shop, finished a bunch of commissions, returned to working on Grim Cafe, and even got a couple cons in.
Some of my art goals for the year were to spend more time sketching from life, continuing GC, expanding my comfort zone with backgrounds, and wasting less time on social media and more time working on making my Patreon a better experience for patrons.
Next year I hope to continue pushing my comfort zone with color and composition, working in different mediums, experimenting with more original works, and most importantly, not rushing the process.
This was also my first year working completely independently as an artist and I can honestly say I owe the majority of my output this year to my patrons’ support, encouragement, and input. It’s been a rough one but there’s some stuff here I’m still proud of.
Thanks for being here, and I hope you’ll join me in 2022
