hey everyone! sorry for the lack of posts lately, i've been pretty busy with freelance work and concepts for the new trichrome movie (it's gonna be red!) :] if you want to stay updated with what i do outside of deviantart, keep an eye on my blog - blog.loish.net :]
anyway, i just wanted to leave a note about, well, notes. i get plenty and i really appreciate them but have SUCH a hard time keeping up! i'm often backlogged here on deviantart. it's kind of unfortunate but my e-mail gets priority because that's where i handle my business-related correspondence. i simply used to have way more time for deviantart but now that i work as a freelance artist, it's hard to set aside time for that kind of thing. so i just wanted to let you guys know that first of all, i will eventually get around to answering all my notes for those who are still waiting for a response, and second of all, if you have something of utmost importance to share with me - a job opportunity, an important question, permission, etc - please e-mail me instead! the risk of sending a note (or even a comment) is having to wait a few months for a response. sadly. of course, i don't plan on this being a permanent situation, but this is just the reality for now.
i kind of miss the good old days where i could spend hours drawing for fun and hanging out on deviantart. even though school was a busy time, it was much easier to draw the line between school and personal time and spend that personal time on art. now art has become my job, which is a good thing, but i feel an obligation to always be working, either doing freelance work, keeping up with e-mails, or promoting myself and updating my blog, etc. it's harder to set aside time just for fun (or drawing personal artwork, for that matter). maybe that's something i still need to learn. anyone else have similar experiences?
