  1. 2020 sucks.

    Just a trigger warning for anyone who needs it, this blog post talks about death and stuff related to it so feel free to skip this if that stuff triggers you.

    Just posting this blog to sort of sort through my emotions because I'm just sort of stuck like a husk of myself at the moment because everything and I'm hoping getting it all out sort of helps me process. Everything happing in 2020 is just hard to process and then life kicks you when you're down.

    So, last Thursday, ...

  2. It's been a while.

    Hi guys! I've been basically MIA for a few months now, minus the few appearances I've made, mainly in the shiny hunting thread haha. So much has gone on that it's been really hard to find time to come on and have any meaningful contributions.

    So life has been up and down for the last few months. My last blog post was about my dad going into hospital due to his mental health. Good news is he was released just before Christmas and has been out since. His mental health isn't perfect but ...

  3. Life after uni is hard. (Plus Snake pics)

    Hi guys. Just wanted to give an update about my life after graduating and explaining how it's been a bit hard.

    If people warned me how hard adjusting to life after university was, I would have prepared myself more. I think the last month or two have been the hardest and I got in quite a low mood a while back as everything just seemed to be getting worse and there was nothing going right.

    Some things are personal and family business so I won't dwell on them too much but ...

  4. My dilemma: Should I sell fan art? (Plus Bo)

    So the title explains itself really.
    I'm currently planning out my reopening of my Etsy shop and me selling my illustrations and I'm a bit lost to the direction I want to go. I'm definitely wanting to do original works. I've got an aspiration to have my own comic book series and I have the characters, story and everything planned for it, I just need to set things in motion for it but first I want to kick off my illustration selling business first.

    I am definitely sure about ...

  5. Just another lost graduate.

    Hi guys,

    Need to get my thoughts out and ask for a little advice. A lot has happened since my last vlog, most not really that great.

    So, I officially graduated on the 16th July, so I am now officially a fully qualified Graphic Designer. I do wish I felt like one though. A few days after I graduated. Then, after of 5 days at my job and my first bad day, they told me 'it wasn't working' and basically blamed my lack of experience, which they knew about, as the reason they ...

  6. I GOT THE JOB!!!!!!!

    Hi guys,
    So by the title of this you already know what this blog is about.
    For context for others who might not have seen my posts about it, I went for a job interview for a graphic design position just over a week ago, and they told me that they were hoping for more experience, however, my portfolio was amazing so they gave me a chance. Within 45 minutes of being out of the interview, they asked me back for a second stage interview where I had to do some design work for them so they ...

  7. Reptiles return and more.

    Hi all,
    Aiming to try and be more active now uni if officially over. I move out of my uni accommodation in two weeks and I graduate in a month. How has my 3 years of uni gone so fast, wow.

Probably going to try and revamp my Etsy shop and do a fair amount of gaming until I end up getting a job to fill my time. I've recently ...

  8. My Etsy shop is up!!

    Hi guys! Really hope this isn't against the rules but if it is feel free to take it down. :/

    After having a fairly terrible summer i've finally gone and done something i'm really excited about. I've set up my Etsy shop and it's all up and running now. I've currently got 14 listings up, the majority from the Smaugust challenge I did over august. Some are still yet to go up. I'm really excited for this to work and for me to start to build it up and work on it. I've had it up for a few ...

  9. Goodbye Oakie.

    Hi all.
    So, haven't spoken about my lizard for a while and this will be the last time I do so.
    Some of you may remember Oakie from a while ago when I used to have two lizards. If not, here's the little beauty.
    Spoiler:

    Oakie had so many things wrong with him, from broken bones to blind in one eye but he kept on going and always was active, fast and had ...

  10. Creative block.

    Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I bet every artist knows exactly that moment when you just have no idea for anything, and when you find an idea you just can't get it to go right or get it down on the paper.
    I've been taking a break from a lot of stuff for the last two weeks or so to try and have a fresh start and get myself out of this creative block but I just can't seem to. It can't have come at a worse time too.

    I'm planning on setting up my Etsy shop this month and i've got ...
