full time artist

The ground, as quickly as it expanded, it just… falls out beneath your feet. And you’re falling, and you’re burning. And you’re being crushed, by the shattered earth, as it compresses down into the ground. And you hear an anguished scream, come from something massive, and furious. And all three of you have died.

The characters you draw and the colors you use are honestly so beautiful. I was wondering if you work as an artist full time? As in, are there places where we can see your work, such as a comic book? Also, do you have any characters with hijabs or headscarves? Anyway, keep up the great work!

Hi, thanks so much! Yes, I art full time! Well, half the day is correspondance, and the other half is art, but it’s my day job. c:

Sorry to say I don’t have any personal art of girls wearing hijabs, but have helped illustrate a character wearing one for a doll line called Woke Girls :D

I do have two girls with generic head scarves, though :

Here is a gentle reminder from a glowing, light-eating cat that every now and then it’s absolutely vital to pause and give yourself the time and space and snacks and stars you need to shine again.

It was career day at an elementary school today, and I was invited by one if the assistant principle asked me to be one of the careers for the kids to cone up and “interview.”

Despite that I got one hour of sleep last night and I was the idiot that forgot my glasses and could only see fuzzy blobs lol, it was actually really fun and cute! All the people giving their careers were cool standard jobs like, police, doctor, engineer, etc. And then I was the weird wild card that was a young adult as a full time artist/youtuber. Lol a lot if kids were not expecting a youtuber to show up at their school you can tell, it was really cute!

I’m sorry to all those who followed me for fantasy stuff and are being bombarded with wrestler fanart; there will be more of my normal stuff in the future but I’ve been dying to paint wrestlers for so long. My daily studies are giving me both the excuse to do it and the constraint of finishing it in 1 or 2 sittings, and they make me happy. I am not a full time wrestle artist now, promise. That’s not to say I’m stopping any time soon.

I started this last night during the Elimination Chamber preshow because I had faith in the GLOW QUEEN and guess what, Naomi is the new Smackdown women’s champ and all is good with the world. (Though if I’d waited until after her win I would have had better ref than low res Smackdown screencaps and it would have been a less frustrating painting with a better result, OH WELL.)

What is the money that we give to you used for exactly? Is it for help you pay off rent or is it kinda like getting a pay check from a bunch of different people? You don't have to answer this if you don't want to but your the only Tumblr blog that I see promote their patreon

Simple, to eat, pay bills, buy better equipment, being able to be a full time artist.
Also idk.how many tumblrs you follow, but I do see a lot of other artists promoting their patreons or ko-fi pages because they want to get a chance to live from their art.

We’re not going to bury the lead here: Bob Ross’ hair was actually straight. Just ask his longtime business partner Annette Kowalski, who knew Ross better than anyone — he had just gotten out of the Air Force, and was unsuccessfully trying to make a living as a painter, she says.

“He got this bright idea that he could save money on haircuts. So he let his hair grow, he got a perm, and decided he would never need a haircut again,” Kowalski explains.

Before he could change it back, though, the perm became his company’s logo — Ross hated it. “He could never, ever, ever change his hair, and he was so mad about that,” Kowalski says. “He got tired of that curly hair.”

But viewers never got tired of Ross or his show The Joy of Painting. With his soft, hypnotic voice, he’d bring his viewers in close as he created 30-minute masterpieces — distant mountain ranges, seascapes, forest scenes, always with those happy little trees. He’d sling his palette around, blend the titanium white paint, whisper about his life in Alaska, then gently tap his fan brush to create a canvas full of fluffy clouds. With his partly unbuttoned chambray shirt, his halo of tight curls and his soothing demeanor, Ross was a fixture on PBS.

Re-watching the show decades later — it’s now streaming on Netflix — The Joy of Painting still feels like a personal art lesson. And yet the oil painter we spent so many hours with remains a mystery. Ross led a private life and did only a few interviews during his career.
