***A few words before we get into it: I’m happy and thankful for all of those that watched my video review last month! However, after unsuccessfully recording the process of January’s Artsnacks Challenge, I’m temporarily reverting back to the blog reviews until I can find an alternative way of video storage, or… just get a camera. Moving on!
Ah, February. The month where partners purchase overpriced chocolate for their loved ones and hope they don’t make the connection that roses that die within two weeks probably aren’t the best thing to purchase as a symbol of their affection.
BUT WORRY NOT, FOR I HAVE BOXES, AND THESE BOXES HAVE SNACKS.
February's Follower Appreciation Raffle is up and going! Sorry it's a bit late this time, but I didn't forget about you guys ;)
You all know the rules! Fill out the Google form, and potentially win yourself a free piece of lineart!
Thanks for everything! ♥

IT'S BOXING DAY
(... it's not, actually, but come on, that was clever)
First off, I hope everyone had a safe and happy Holiday!
Next, the reason for this post. I will be closing down my Patreon, and here's why:
Late last month/early this month, Patreon announced that they would be changing how the fee structure worked to put more money into the creators pocket. However, the way the math worked out, caused this to be a huge impact on those that were pledging a small amount per month - an amount that many people did. While Patreon did later decide to not implement these fee changes, many patrons had already pulled their pledges, because the fee structure simply did not allow them to maintain this financially.
Patreon did send out an apology for the uproar this whole thing had caused, but through their initial explanation of how this new structure would work, a post had claimed something along the lines of that they would rather have just a few creators be highly successful than have many 'small' creators that just brought in a couple bucks.
Small creators like me.
While the apology was appreciated and I do respect the team for owning up to the poor decision, this comment has just left a really poor taste in my mouth and I can not get over it.
In addition to that, I feel that I myself am struggling to stay on top of it, or don't quite know what to offer to make the subscription more appealing. (i haven't had more than 4 patrons at any point during the 2-some years I've had it open) I do not want to paywall my art, so making certain pieces Patreon only isn't an option for me. I also struggle making WIP's an exclusive thing, because I get excited when I work on something and want to show, well, everyone lol.
Until something else comes along, I will see about working out some kind of rewards system for Ko-Fi donations (I am open to suggestions!)
I will not be pulling any of my Patreon pledges, so for creators on there, you will still have my support.
But thank you everyone who's stuck with me!
Bawk bawk boxing time!
Get it? Because it’s Thanksgiving time and turkeys make... bird... noises
… shut up
First off, I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! I decided to add a 'blog'' to this website for a few reasons. For one, this will allow me to keep everyone updated on sales that are happening, whether that be in my Etsy shop, or just commission wise. Another reason is that I would like to have a place to host the reviews I do. Currently I am subscribed to an art program called Artsnacks, which delivers a small box of products on a monthly basis. My reviews typically involve a small demo, in addition to my opinion with the pros and cons, mixed with some witty commentary to keep things interesting.
You know, review things :)
I may transfer some of these reviews over from my tumblr, but until then, thanks for stopping by!
This blog will contain all kinds of fun information! Here is where I will post things like sales, general art updates, as well as product reviews!
