[Dragonmun Studios] Transformations...

At the time, I turned Tre's comment (photo above) into a springboard for a quick quip about my probably needing a new car, but he was spot-on. November was a huge month of transformation for me. First was that Adobe (and Pantone), as a company, finally frustrated me enough that I ditched them.  - Link deviantART, as a company, finally frustrated me enough that I ditched them - Link And Twitter's imploding. - Link To the first point, I switched entirely over to Affinity for graphics (I'll do a write-up for this on Patreon soonish). Secondly, the thing with deviantART is compounding with my mixed feelings about AI (frequently discussed on discord ). As for Twitter… What to do with social media is a problem that has me kind of has me stumped… again.

It also lightly supports Florida's other kinds of artists, which is why I'm here right now! 😁 Lesi and I set up the Dragonmun Studios art tent just outside of the Mainstage/VIP/Artist Village gates and are gonna be camping out here all day to sell our fantastic creations! You can find out more about our doings at this event by clicking here (I'd link you to the event website, but that's honestly a horrible mess ). This is my second-to-last live event happening this year, with " Fabrications: An Exhibit About Truth and Lies " (happening on November 17th) being the last. I'm starting to feel the hype for this since
