I should have written about this sooner. Tomorrow I start my July holiday, and I return late next week. While I won't be completely absent from here, I can't keep up with group deviation stacks. I get thousands of deviations in my subbed group stacks every single day, and the DA mobile app is terrible, which makes browsing stacks incredibly inefficient. I'll still check out deviations from individuals on my watch list, but the group stacks just are unmanageable on the app or in a mobile browser. I'll be on holiday, which means no working
Unfortunately, managing stuff here takes a minimum of 1 hour a day.
Also, obviously I won't be doing any commissions during this time. My anticipated return to artwork is July 25th. You can still request, just know that I can't start on anything until then
Lastly, I actually have a Pinterest account now
It's been a good source of ideas and inspiration. I avoided the service for many years, because it is well known for recipes and DIY crap around the house. But being a soccer mom-centric social media outlet has advantages: lots of pins of makeup, nails, dresses, fashion in general, hairstyles, and there is a TON of anime/manga which really surprised me. I finally made an account a few months ago, for the sole purpose of sharing my artwork, but the anime/manga pins have really taken off. If you're interested and have an account, here's mine:www.pinterest.com/williamrumle…
Again, I should be back full time on 25 July. What I look forward to most of all during this trip, is staying with my blood family this coming weekend. My niece has taken a lot of interest in my work, tot he point of making her own dolls in mobile apps. She made her own art book, copying what I did during last year's run at RICC, and my brother says she really looks up to me. Of course, I'm excited to see the whole family. But having someone so young revere me so much, it's humbling....... and since she loves art, I want to do my very best to encourage her to be the best artist she can be. It reminds me of the nephew-by-proxy I have. He just graduated high school, and has been working on his own manga series. I look forward to helping him out with that and learning Blender together. But yeah, my niece Lily...... I'm gonna do my best
You'll still see me, I'm just taking some time off
