Screw off Link by bandeau
Screw off Link
These are painful to see, so I'm posting them here instead of my facebook so I don't have to see it all the time.

I spent far too long on these costumes and was too excited to see the photos not to upload them.

Link's costume was a steampunk version I made about two years ago. I had a photoshoot scheduled with a friend in Vancouver when she asked if I'd be willing to come up with a Zelda costume. I had one month and two weeks to put it together, including ordering supplies. It was a scramble.

So almost two years ago I posted that I'd be going on a hiatus from DA. I signed in today for the first time in...uhhh... I don't even know how long, to 1,000+ messages, 3,000+ new deviations and 600+ watch notifications. I'm thinking I'm just going to leave those there.

I went from buying a bookstore to owning a toy store to being the vice chair on the BIA and running several events and more in town. I haven't taught an art class in over a year and I've turned down I don't even know how many requests. Even the clients I used to love drawing for I've been saying no to because, really, I could already use a couple dozen more hours in the day. I've said yes to only one contract (a children's book no less...how the f*ck did that happen...?) because it's for a friend but that'll be it.

The cool thing about having a store and being an ex-illustrator? I slap ancient artwork up on the walls and for some reason people buy it. Works for me! My old art cabinets are finally thinning out and our walls are nice and colourful.

I think I've drawn maybe two pictures in the last year, and oddly I don't really miss it. I think when you stop drawing for yourself and just draw for everyone else for a decade you eventually burn out and stop caring. When life slows down (hah! right!) I'll start drawing for myself again.

In the meantime we've got an offer on 10 acres and plans to build a new house. Because we have time and the energy to do that sort of thing, right? RIGHT? Oh good god...

Now I have to decide if we want to keep our current house as well or sell it when the new one is on the go.

Did I mention I'm debating doubling the size of the store again?

Why do I do this to myself?

I must apologize. ;n;
Lol I think we only met once when I was living in Kelowna for some art lessons, which was awesome by the way. I had recognized your artist name in the book shop and was surprised, but I'm really bad with people. OTL So, sorry, sorry! lol
But welcome to the caribou, or back to the caribou? haha
Also thank you so much for bringing some more anime stuff to this little town, it was desperately needed. xD I love the shop and your work.
