The nice thing is that it's only January 2, and I feel like that gives me some leeway on my year mistakes. Two weeks from now I'll have no excuse other than I AM A VERY CONFUSED HUMAN so that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Anyway, wanted to pop in here and see what I can do to spruce up the old blog. I've been getting a lot of stuff under my belt, and let me tell you - having a calendar hasn't helped my sense of schedule at all. Husband messaged me wanting to know the convention schedule in case he needed to mark time off and so I started compiling an actual list of shows I'm either vending, guesting, or just visiting.
I had 12 up through November, and that's not including the extra 4-5 I'm waiting to hear back on.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoy doing the convention thing, I am just trying to figure out how, even with a calendar of months I manage to overbook myself and now I'm already getting anxiety thinking about how little time I'll have to do things.
I also told myself one of my new resolutions for this year was to cut back on the amount of conventions I'm vending so I can actually focus on my artwork rather than just products. *stares at camera*
I have a host of neat ideas I want to work on - as I want to focus more on my artwork and have my cosplay still continue to be the fun hobby that it is! And with that, I also prefer doing educational panels over ANYTHING else, so hey, if you need somebody to come in and teach about cosplay *wink wink* lemme know.
And without further ado, here's some items on my checklist:
Ideas for the New Year
- Go back to updating TalOS
- Start my Patreon
- Upload Art Process Videos / Start a YouTube Channel
- Review some more how-to-art books here
- Update the blog more (AHAHAHAHAH)
- Update my Conventions List on the pages
- Do more drawings for me!
- Remember to post more on FB/Insta/Twitter
*looks at list*
*checks off update blog more*
Welp, that's one thing off the list!
Let's make 2018 a better one than last year (it was really rough for a lot of us).
