Friend got published

Hey everyone. For anyone who remembers, two of my latest drawings (namely Baby Delivery and What to do? ) had a chance of getting published in a Belgian children’s magazine called Knuffel.

Sadly, my drawings didn’t get selected. However, one of my friends got more lucky and did get one of her drawings published!

Mimmam’s drawing Time will get published to accompany a poem about time. So a big congrats to my friend! And if you are interested, check out her gallery, she has some nice work in there. =D

I’d also like to point out again that I co-host a group together with my friend, called Colours outside the lines. Each month we all decide on a theme and then we make drawings to go with this theme. This month our theme is “Cats and Dogs”. So for anyone in…

Thank you + group invitation

I want to give a big thank you to the people who sent me their hugs, best wishes and support over the last two days. I really appreciate all the support you have given me and it has helped me a lot. So, thank you very much everyone! =)

Also, it seems I reached 10,000 views on my art today! I never expected my drawings to get that many views here, so it was a really nice surprise. Thank you everyone for checking out my art and for leaving all your wonderful comments. It really makes me happy. =D

Last but not least, I’d like to tell you all about a relatively new group here on RedBubble where I am the co-host. Together with a friend, we host the Colours Outside the Lines group, a group for illustrators to post their work. But to be a bit different from other groups, we work with a new…

Life feels a bit messed up at the moment.

This morning I found one of my cats, dead. Hit by a car last night apparently. Was horrible to see her laying there on the side of the road. I will miss her so very much. We picked her up from the street as a kitten who was dirty and abandoned. She was very affectionate and the buddy of our dog. =(

Also, just heard that one of my uncles got stabbed in his arm last night. Happened outside on the street. Luckily it was just his arm, but still, that’s just messed up.

And my grandpa is currently in the hospital after a surgery on his knee. He’s doing okay at the moment, but I’m afraid he might get even more depressed than he already was (after grandma died over a year ago).

Sorry, just felt like I had to write this down somewhere. It…

Still alive!

Hey everyone!
I figured it was time to post a new journal entry to show that I’m still alive! I know I haven’t really posted much here over the last couple of months, but I’m hoping that will change.
School has started again so I’ll be working on new assignments. And since I have 12 hours of Illustration per week, it’s likely I’ll make some drawings in there that I can post here. =)

Also, I got featured in two groups, yay!
My Whistle drawing is featured in the group All About Your Best Work.

And my shirt Hot Chocolate is featured in the group Sweet Tooth.

So thank you for the features! =D
And I’d also like to thank the people who bought some of my shirts over the last months. It really makes me happy! =)

School ends!

So yes, school is over! I finally got my grades today, and I passed all my subjects! Hooray for me! =D

Summer holiday can finally start. Well it already started Monday, but I’ve been sick since then and have spent most of my time in bed. Seems I have a viral infection on my throat (which is extremely sore) and an infection on my jaw (the parts near the ear, where it connects to the skull… yeah I hadn’t heard of this before). I can barely hear through my ears, my nose is absolutely stuffed (and my skin there is all painful because I need to keep cleaning my nose, ewww), leading to a constant headache, as well as a very annoying cough. Oh, and I don’t have enough iron in my body so I need to take pills for that as well. Wheeee. =P

So yeah, I was hoping to be drawing …

CocoRosie (and more)

Hey fellow Bubblers!

I recently (this week) discovered a new cool site: Squidoo. I’m not sure if you know about it yet, but I didn’t. It allows the user to make a “lens” (a page) about pretty much any subject they like. So I decided I would make one too.

I ended up making one for CocoRosie, one of my favourite bands at the moment. I want to show their music to more people, since I think they deserve more attention than they have been getting. Their music is pretty unique and could probably be classed as weird, but if you listen to it a few times, you might start to love it as much as I do! =D

If you want to check them out, you can visit my lens here. There are links to Youtube videos of their songs on this page.
Let me know what you think of them (you can vote or le…

Zazzle - card discount!

Hey everyone!
I don’t like to advertise, but I thought I would let you all know. My Cupcake Card got selected as Hottest Greeting Card today on Zazzle. What this means is that it will be sold for 3 days with a discount of 20%! That brings the price of the card to only $2.36.

So if you are interested in a pretty cheap birthday card, please check out the following link. =D
Birthday card here!

Zazzle

To follow Karin Taylor’s example, I checked out Zazzle today, and decided I would try to set up a gallery there. They have a huge variety of products, and it seemed cool to me to try some of them out. =D

It took me a while to find how to do everything (I find that site very confusing, RedBubble is much easier!), but at the moment I have a couple of products set up already. I would upload more, but I don’t have any of those files on my laptop, plus I’m supposed to be revising my Psychology. =P

But if you want to check out my gallery there, you can click here.
I already got one of my things (Cupcake card) featured as Today’s Best or something, but so far that hasn’t really generated much traffic. =P

So don’t worry, I won’t be leaving RedBubble, as I …

Two more shirts sold =)

Haha, I know you don’t all want to hear about what I sell when, and I won’t be bothering you with this anymore after this post. But I wanted to thank someone.

I sold one shirt (the bee one) to a mystery buyer, who I would like to thank this way.

The second one however I sold to Aimless, who purchased the Hot Chocolate shirt as a present for someone. I want to thank him for buying my shirt. Also, you should all go check out his gallery. He has only posted a couple of written works, but I like them and I figured maybe you would like them too. If you do, go tell him to write more, because I don’t think he will listen to me anymore. =P

You can visit his gallery here

Also for anyone interested, my classes are over and my assignments are handed in. So all I still have left to …

Hot Chocolate shirt sold! =D

So it appears someone bought a shirt of me, namely the Hot Chocolate 2 one in red! =D

A biiiiiiiiiiig thank you to the mystery buyer! =)

And for anyone interested in my “personal” life: today I had my last class of the year! Now it’s only a month until school is finally over. One week left to hand in all my assignments (I still need to do a ton of work on those; no sleep for me! =P ), then three weeks for my exams.
Already got one grade back on a paper for my Sociology class (was a groupswork paper, and accounts for about 1/5th of our end grade); we ended up getting 43/60, the best grade out of all groups. Yay! =D

I hope everyone is doing well, and I also hope I can finally get back to RedBubble with some art once this is all over. =)

Inactivity

Hey everyone!

I’m kind of posting here to apologise. I know quite a few people started watching me (and I’m really happy about that! =D ), probably waiting for more of my art. The thing is that at the moment, I am very busy with college assignments. I’m going through my last few weeks of classes and have to hand in my art assignments soon. Then right after that I have a couple of exams to go through still.

So at the moment, I’m kind of drowning in work and sadly don’t have time to make any new art (or at least art I’d want to post on here). So I apologise! Hopefully at the end of June – begin July I should be able to come back to RedBubble with some new stuff.
I still check the site every day though, and read your lovely comments.

Thanks for the s…

Thank you everyone!

I woke up this morning to a nice thunderstorm, complete with hail and loud rolling thunder. Great start to the day.
But then when I did my daily internet routine and arrived at RedBubble, I was greeted with a very familiar drawing. My own! What a big surprise it was to see my drawing on the front page. It certainly made my day a whole lot better! =D

Since I don’t have the time to properly thank everyone who commented, faved or added me to their watchlist, I am writing this little note to thank you all! Your support means so very much to me, and it’s an encouragement to keep on drawing. So thank you thank you thank you! =D

is a happy girl now

Thank you Alyson!

I want to send out a biiiiiiiiiiiiiig thank you to the very talented and oh so nice Alyson Pearson who bought a card of my Red Robin drawing.
My very first sale! =D

Thank you so so very much! This really means a lot to me and it’ll probably motivate me to draw even more and keep visiting RedBubble (which is a wonderful site filled with wonderful people). Though I’m still pretty new here, I’ve really been enjoying the experience of this site and I will continue to do so.

Thank you everyone for the comments and favs and thank you Alyson for buying a card!

New and loving it already!

Hi!

I stumbled upon this site yesterday (or two days ago now, as it’s just past midnight) and thought it looked like a really nice and friendly place, so I let myself stroll through the sign up process to arrive where I am now. Right here, writing this journal on what seems to be a site I will love very much.

I uploaded some of my art to see how everything works, and I’ve already gotten comments and favourites, something I wasn’t expecting at all. So thank you very much everyone, for giving me such a nice and warm welcome.
Now all I have to do is figure out how everything works, upload some more work and then start on my journey through the art here.

There will be many hours of my life spent here, I can feel it already!
And I’m sure I’ll love every minute of i…
