Fiddling – August

What I’m fiddling with: August was when I really, really tried to create useful content for other creators. It feels a bit backwards because I put my big workbook project aside to focus on the blog.

I’m really excited about it because it’s so much fun for me to write and I hope it’ll be fun and useful for you guys too! I’m really focusing on helping other creators combat their fears and doing […]

WITCHCRAFT MAKES PEOPLE HAPPIER

What I’m currently fiddling with: -This painting that actually looks better as a WIP than what the finished product will look like I’m sure. I’m trying to push myself to be less loyal to my references and making more experimental work so at this point I’m like, hey this WIP is like MODERN ART just by its self! It basically just went down hill from here anyway. -Jack the Ripper and Frankenstein! Two wildly complex murder boys. Separate projects, a series of articles and a screenplay respectfully, but IMAGINE. –Toggl.com since I’m really focusing on the whole time management aspect […]

What I Wish I Knew Before Starting a YouTube Channel

Alt headlines for this post: YouTube Advice From One of YouTube’s Bitter Exes, How To Succeed on YouTube Without Losing Your Goddamn Mind, Do Not Let a Social Media Platform Traumatize You For Life Please, I Only Watch Videos of People Painting Because Anything Else Makes Me Cry I’m approaching the point where I’ve been on a hiatus for almost YouTube as long as I was actually on Youtube and I’ve been playing with the idea of getting back on the horse.
