What's next for me? - Update for March29/02/16

Hello there!

It's been a while since I updated so I thought to just do a write up for the past month of February and what's to come in March.

In my previous post, I mentioned FurCoNZ which happened near the beginning of February, was amazing! Even though I had to be in the Art Room as Staff for most of the day - it was well worth it! I'm glad to have met some great NZ furries, and gotten quite some post-con commissions and such! I'm already looking forward to the next one!

Now, after the convention, I also stated I was going to study. I trialed for one week and the result was no, no I can't go back to a study environment. The sheer amount it affected me mental health was not worth another piece of parchment that will not lead me to a job. If you want more details, read this post.

So this year, I'm going to first try and be a full time commission artist, and if I can, fit in an online study course. I already know the places to look for Graphic Design learning :)

This means, I better catch up on my backlog as much as possible so I can be OPEN again! Feel free to keep an eye on my Art Queue for where I'm up to in commissions, art trades and other art! As well as my website: http://taalaruhun.com for my Commission Status and my main hub for arts, other creative things, shop and updates.

And currently, I'm also working on DrDubz's Feral comic and have finished 15 pages so far! Woo!

Also, speaking of Shops, I'm going to do a big update to my online stores as well as adding a new one! An international t-shirt one so people overseas can access my designs :) - I've ordered a personal t-shirt from there so once I receive it and know it's quality - I'll be updating that one as well!

And as the year goes on, I'll dust off my Patreon and actually learn how to utilise it since it is this year I plan to make my comics anyway as well as be a full time commission artist.

*sighs* It's been a struggle having anxiety and depression, as it limited me to my study as a school. However, I'm not going to let these mental disabilities keep me down. I've had a lot of people remind me that I'm worth keeping around. Gifts out of nowhere, lots of kind words of support, and of course, my loving husband Thomas who has to endure the worst of me, and loves me no less. Thank you, and thank you to all my supporters!

Now, I have a lot of hard work ahead of me, but with every success, I know one of the people who I cared about - who took his own life too soon - wants me to fight the things in my head and not let them get me like it got him. He believed in me, my art, and how far I'll go - and being alive to flourish as that successful artist, will keep him alive in me.

I won't give up. I am a beautiful, sweet and amazing creative. I have a great year ahead of me, and I look forward to sharing it with all of you. Let's see what I can do! :D
