Oh, yes I did! I really just made a Frozen reference. Why? Because, kittens!
In other news: Since it really has been forever since I updated my journal: Have an update!
Not that I really have much interesting to say, it had just been a really long time since I posted anything to my journal. So, I am opening the comment section for comments and suggestions!
So, bring on your questions, thoughts, ponderings and wits and have some fun together! I promise I will try my best to answer everything
In serious updates: Ehhhh, I am still painting, just finished a series for the first time (of really good looking men... <3 lol) and am going to have some cool updates soon!
Aaaaaand there is currently a Kickstarter running for a project I illustrated; A card deck based around "The Wizard of Oz"!! Wanna have a look?
Go right here to this pretty link and let me know what you think. Heck, maybe even back the project? I would be very happy if you did.

Also, because I think this is worth a mention: Can we stop with the witch-hunting already? Yes, people do bad things and yes, some of them get away with it... But are they really hurting anyone aside from their own pride? If you think someone is stealing or plagiarizing, contact them via private message with a friendly note. Give them a chance to explain themselves. There really is no need to rally the masses and bully someone into oblivion over something so trivial.
My friend (with the most awesome first name ever) Suzanne Helmigh wrote a very brave, nice and clear journal on the subject, which you can read here:
Witchhunts among artists.I was very reluctant on writing this journal, as I often just want to inspire and write uplifting things. This topic is a little less so.
The word 'Witchhunt' comes from a time were some women got accused for being witches because of their beauty or their way to modern way of living (being a single mother or non-christian in times where that was absolutely outrageous). Those women would get ridiculous tests to proof their humanity from which they ultimately would die (burning on the fire stake or getting drowned in a river.) The fact that they did not survive it would proof that they are human and not a witch. We all know that there are no immortal people.. so no woman had ever survived it.
Now when we talk about Artist Witchhunts it's pretty similar, an artist would get accused of using unorthodox methods or plagiarism. No one likes plagiarism and
And that is all I will say on the matter.
Now, go forth, share love and be awesome unicorns!
