Hey, hello, hiya, and welcome, to the relaunch of NoStyleStudios, my art site and now brand new personal blog! It’s been…Okay, a long time plus some ridiculous sprinkled on top since I last had anything here but a blank construction page, but it’s a new year and I think that’s as good an excuse as any for a new start! Specifically for me, at least, the long and short kinda being that I’ve been away too long, I’ve been lazy, and I’ve been negligent of the one thing that actually makes me happy: my art. And for that’s there’s no excuses. So! As part of the ongoing WIP that’s my life, I’m making a few changes that line up with my goals for this year and one of those just so happens to be getting my website up and usable again, and making a valiant attempt to motivate myself by chronicling my creative goings on with a blog. (This is it, in case you’re behind.)
And this is me, the awkward looking ‘tard who can’t take a decent picture to save her life. I’m a pretty shifty sort, as you can tell. Also, for those who don’t know (ie- in case somebody visits who isn’t my Mom or my roommates), I’m Heather, but I tend to go by Kit or Kitty online and at conventions. Also, sorry mom, I’m using my real name on the internet now and I realize that I’m going to be kidnapped by Anonymous internet predators and used in their unholy trollings of 4chan, but I think it’ll be okay since I come equipped with lots of highly developed self-defense skills like ‘crying’ and ‘not being fourteen’.
Uh, but anyway, I swear I was going somewhere… I like to draw. And color. And sometimes sell those drawings and colorings if people will buy them. Which is something else I’m working on this year, coincidentally (yay! topic train back on track! Take that, ADD). Being more successful with freelancing, that is. I’ve been out of the convention circuit for several years and though I’m not jumping back in, I do have plans to test the waters and will hopefully be opening commissions very soon! Art is what I really love to do, and as much fun as random retail jobs and styling hair can be, it’d really make me the happiest to make money doing what I care most about. So we’ll see. My main goal right now is really to just get the ball rolling, get myself motivated, and be productive. Blogs are good for that sort of thing, so I hear. At least I hope it will be more than my LJ, which I tend to forget about until I want to fan!spazz about something haha;; Though hey, maybe I could crosspost this crap over there and look like I’m alive, right? I refuse to even talk about my DA lol.
It’s already been helping though, having a place to babble and make lists and record goals. This is my Visual Journal. I started it several months back as a way to keep track of my life on a day to day basis; not so much a diary but a book of goals and accomplishments. I carry it pretty much everywhere. If you can’t tell, it’s a Moleskine painted with Alistair on the cover. Not the best artistic masterpiece, but it makes me smile. Maybe I’ll post some pages from it soon, if anybody’s interested. I think it’s going to set a little bit of the standard for what I’ll be posting here, besides the site updates and random Photoshop doodles.
That’s about it, though! My big comeback debut! I know you’re impressed, applaud and send gifts if you must. And comment or email me if you have any questions or whatever at all. I’m always around, even if I’m lurking behind the tablet. See y’all soon!!
