*NOTE: I might edit this journal a little later, since there was a slightly more in-dept version that I typed up but for some reason it didn't save properly.  Essentially, everything here is what I'm trying to get across, but if anyone has any questions or is curious about a new URL or anything, please feel free to ask/leave a comment.

*******************************************

Nothing too drastic in terms of renaming, just switching most of my stuff from "Stray Studios" or "NY-Stray" to "Stray Sketches" or something along those lines, because at the end of the day I am not a business, I am a single person who likes to draw, doodle, write and share my ideas, and I'm kind of done with trying to build a "business" because I realize that that's not what I want to do (at least not right now).


**(I'll update all of my links and websites, though it might take me a little while, so bare with me.  I'm not getting rid of any of my sites/social outlets, just renaming them)**


Yes, I want to continue to offer commissions and such, but that's not what I really want to focus on--I want to focus on my own stories and do commissions if/when I can.

It has nothing to do with my clients or the workload--my clients have, so far, been wonderful, patient people who have appreciated and liked my art when I didn't and who have challenged me as an artist to tackle jobs and subjects that I otherwise wouldn't.  So, to emphasize again, I'm not discontinuing commissions nor giving up art or anything, I'm just going to try to focus more on what makes me happy as an artist, rather than trying to do/draw/show what I think others would like.

I'm about to finish college next semester with a Fine Arts degree and, I hate to say, if I had to do it all over again, I probably wouldn't have chosen art as a major--not because I don't like drawing any less, and not even because I'm worried about having a so-called "useless degree."  I took a lot of classes on various art forms, everything from drawing to painting to sculpture, and there was just way too much pretentiousness for me to handle, and it got to the point where I almost gave up on art completely.  I understand that there's a time and place for art to have a standard, but at the end of the day--for me, at least--art is about expression, emotions and fun, and while I understand (and even encourage) critique I know there's a difference between critique and appeasing someone's ego, and I don't want to feel like I have to mold and shift my ideas to fit into what someone else wants them to be.  It just got to a point where I wasn't having fun doing what I loved anymore; I felt very pressured and very uninspired and sometimes I even forget why I liked art in the first place, and as an artist, that's one of the worst feelings.

So, nothing's really going to change in terms of my art, especially since commissions were so sporadic to begin with, but my mindset is a little different.

I draw everything from cartoons to characters to half-finished comics to fantasy and can't make up my mind what kind of artist I am, so I draw a bit of everything | Constantly searching for the good, the bad, the ugly and the whimsical about the animation and film industries (behind-the-scenes featurettes are my life) | Writer of books that take way too long to write | Adorer or all dogs (a.k.a. permanent puppies) | Tacky Goth gal with a particular aesthetic for Halloween-themed stuff, cemeteries, werewolves and quality Disney merch | Pongo and Perdita figurine collector | proud Disnerd | Gargirl of the Manhattan Clan
