[Dragonmun Studios] To Tell The Truth... or Not. 😅
The paintings I did for "Fabrications: An Exhibit About Truth and Lies"
Today (Nov. 5th) is the DeLand Original Music Festival! As the name implies, it's all about supporting Florida's independent musicians and has over a hundred acts performing on… I don't actually know how many stages (the schedule can be found here). 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 I was interviewed about it (and so much more) on the Ancestral Muses podcast. Quite a few artists participating in it were, actually. Our episodes will be released, countdown-style, between now and then. Use whatever podcast platform you like to subscribe so that you can hear them. 🥰
As usual, I'll also be participating in the NaNoWriMo challenge this year. Also, as usual, I'm being weird about it and will be laying out a graphic design/art morgue book and zine instead of writing strict prose. I still made a word count goals calendar for it, which can be downloaded here.
With all this going on, I'm going to have to cease taking commissions fairly soon. Those wanting watercolor paintings to give as gifts at the end of December are going to have to let me know before November 12th. Those cool with digital paintings and email-delivery will have until the end of the month. I won't be taking on any new work in December so that I can complete everything (hopefully in time to work around the craziness that is shipping during the holidays).

Happy 2022! All these twos must be affecting my brain because I've been two days late with my regularly scheduled content since the year started. 😅 I want to blame the cheese, but in truth it's because I've been overwhelmed with the move into my new house and the death of a dear friend . In fact, I've been using the move to dive mindlessly into physical labor and turn off my feelings - which bit me in the ass earlier this week when I realized that I hadn't even started on my Patreon update. I opened up photoshop to start coloring and about ten minutes in I couldn't see the screen through my tears. That moment of quiet allowed me to grieve like I should've in the first place and I guess I'm better now for it. I still miss Weatherly though. He was a staple of convention life for me - a friendly face that was always there to tell really bad jokes, make silly faces, and show off his latest shirt designs. He was the father of Aardvark Tees and if you'
I never get tired of opening boxes like this. While I didn't technically "win" the NaNoWriMo again this year, I've been extremely successful with it. Sivoa: Zenith now has as many words as Sivoa: Sunrise and the ending is actually written. I just need to fill in some plot holes and write in some scene connectors before it's onto the editing phase. I forgot how exciting it is to be this close to the finish line! Heck, I'm feeling this on two fronts! The children's book I've been working on is approaching completion and is looking like it'll make its deadline of February! Y'all, this story is so stinking cute! It's about 5 little goblins just barely not failing at puppy sitting. Stylistically, it's like a hybrid storybook and comic, which helps to keep it timeless. 🥰 Being on the production side, I do not know what launch procedures for this book will look like, but if you want to be kept informed about release and ordering information
