Marie V.W
Artist | Student | Traditional Art
United States
I've been drawing since I was little.
I'm largely self taught, but I have managed to grab a local class here and there.
My art is mostly influenced by traditional Japanese works and various Japanese comic artists.
My aim is to do this for a living or at least as a sort of second job.
My tools include Sakura Micron pens and various color pencil sets (Prismacolor, Derwint, Irojiten, etc.).
  • Mood: Eager
  • Listening to: Tycho
  • Playing: Mine Craft
  • Eating: Subway
  • Drinking: Guava blend juice by Naked.
That moment when you realize you haven't posted anything since 07/14. o.o

Wow, I look back at that entry and the one before and think; You have no idea what is coming. Especially the one before last. She had no clue, how much her life would change in just months. Had someone told me what would happen I'd have been like 'Yeah okay dude, as if.' But here I am.
2014 was the year of massive progress and change.
God sure writes a crazy story, he makes things you could have never even imagine to happen happen. Totally nuts and it blows my mind to think, that in January of 2014 I had no license, never had a job, and was still living in Florida, never having seen any of the US outside of Fl, GA, or tn and never considering I'd see much more any time soon.

In a mere seven months every bit of that changed and with bonuses.
Not more than a month later from the January entree, I got my license and my first real job within days of each other. A month after that I started dating someone I had been wrestling with feelings with for an entire year almost exactly. This relationship has now been going on a little over year and I couldn't imagine a better human companion to share life with. Five months later I am in the state furthest away from Florida with exception to Alaska and not long after my human moved here after getting offered a job either (my dad helped him move and decided to look for work while he was up here. Three months later he got a job too and now here we are.). Which saves a lot on plane tickets!
What can I say, God's doin' stuff. Never know what he is going to do in your life, but letting him do it is never something anyone regrets.
There is still so much I want to do and I am working hard to get where I want to be, but in time I'll get there and with God there, I know things will be okay, I just need to be patient. It may seem silly to some of you... but there are plenty of times in my life where a lot of things shouldn't have happened, but they did and the things that could have happened didn't. I can tell you from experience he does watch over us and he does care. You may not feel him there at the time, but when it blows over and you look back, his presence couldn't be more clear.

But I ramble...
Phew, can you tell I am excited about this move?

Hehe, so anyway; I apologize for the total lack of new material, I've been extremely busy with moving, working (yay I have a job again), exploring, and just being super busy in general. The fact that my scanner remains to be seen isn't helpful and it's probably in a box in the garage where it shouldn't be.
Maybe I'll have a go at digging the thing out this weekend (Sunday).

I am, however, delving deeper into photography and, with my trusty iPhone, take pictures several times a week.
So while my DA account has been sitting collecting dust, I have been filling up a new Instagram account with photos once or twice a week.
If you'd like to see my shots do click the link provided here: :)

I've been working on my art more often lately too and will post a picture or two sometime soon (after my scanner is found and installed).

I hope everyone is doing well and progressing in their own creative skills as well, keep it up guys! 

Blessings and Sprinkles, Marie V.W
