Wow, it has been a long, LONG time since I've updated this journal...hell, it's been a long time since I've really been active on DA in general.  

So, what's happened since I posted that last journal entry about Gryffindor pride, and leaving for my first year of college at the University of Denver?  Well, I've:

-Attended the University of Denver for two trimesters, made a few friends, but didn't really feel like I fit in.
-Started to teach myself digital art (not starting to learn earlier is one of my biggest artistic regrets...)
-In March of 2012 I applied and was accepted to Minneapolis College of Art and Design as a transfer student
-I made the wonderful mistake of getting a tumblr to post my more sketchy and less refined pieces (
-Started to get deeper into cosplay
-At the beginning of this fall I began my art college career...and I couldn't be happier.  It's way more challenging then the art program at my old college, and I'm absolutely thrilled about that - even if there have been days that I've just wanted to throw down my pencil, there have also been days and projects that make everything worthwhile. I've made some absolutely great friends, and I can honestly say that I'm going to miss this place over the summer.

Anyway, I'm going to try to be a bit more active with this account, and remember to cross-post my art on DA and tumblr.  

Here's to summer everyone!

United States
I am a twenty-one-year-old illustration student at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, as well as a complete geek. I am a huge trekkie, Harry Potter fanatic, Lord of the Rings freak, and obsessed with numerous other book series and movies. After college I hope to work either illustrating books or in the concept art section of animation or film - perhaps even both!

I love art. Art is life, life is art, you get the picture.
