Words of Thanks

I wish I could personally thank every single one of you who has shown me and my art support, it's not always possible to reply personally to each comment I get. I do read every single one!
So I must give a heartfelt thank you here and let you know how much I appreciate all of your kind words and support over the years.
I hope continuing sharing with you little pieces of my soul through my art is thanks enough :hug:


Where did you learn to draw?
I'm completely self taught! My high school art teacher told me cartoons were not art, so I didn't peruse any formal education in art. My drive came from within, to draw something into existence has always been intoxicating for me.

Where do you get your inspiration?
Drawing is the way I can best express myself. My art is like a visual diary, documenting feelings, thoughts and events. I find my inspirations all over, most often in everyday life, or the need get crap out of my head onto paper.
Please don't let me darker work fool you. I'm naturally a cheerful person; who has struggled with tough times. During the hard times I use drawing as an escape, a way to vent and put my story on paper, to be constructive with the destructive thoughts. It's been a life saver.

Do you do commissions?
Never, sorry. If someone is controlling my pen with their money I find it stifling. Staying independent is really important to me. I need to tell my own stories, an I know you guys appreciate seeing original work :)

Do you do requests?
No, sorry. See above. Minus money. This includes drawing you XD

What tools do you use?
PhotoShop CS6 and SAI, and a Wacom intuos3 drawing tablet, or my snazzy new Cintiq Companion. I recommend looking at Wacoms 'Bamboo' range if you're just starting out :)

Do you read your comments?
Every. Single. One. The support and feedback you give me is beautiful and often overwhelming I'm truly sorry I cannot reply to everyone (If I did I would never get any drawing done XD) but I read them all, and so many of you have touched me more deeply then you'll ever know :heart:

Can I use your art for something personal/non profit?
Please do! I love it when people use my art for wallpapers/backgrounds/tattoos/scrapbooks
I also love to see my work shared, as long as credit is provided :heart:

Can I use your art for my commercial product?
No. You may not use my art for your financial gain.

Can I do a school assignment about you?
What an honour ^-^ Please feel free to, though I'm sorry I can't personally answer questions, I have covered a lot in my full FAQ:

Can I create something inspired by you?
Wow, yes! I adore seeing works I helped inspire :heart: Please do. Stuff like this makes my day :)

Where can I buy prints?
You can order signed prints which I produce and sign personally form my store:
Online stores closed, selling exclusively at conventions at the moment :heart: :)

I have more questions!
That's not actually a question ;)
But if you would like to know anything more please check out my long full FAQ here:

Thank you! :heart:

Someone at the Belgium show said my professional title should be an 'Art Rockstar' which I thought was hilarious but not particularly true, but they insisted my paintings are the songs, and the conventions are the gigs ;) Hehe, okay, I'll try it on for size! 'Art Rockstar' it sounds cooler than 'not sure if professional artist or just drawer who likes to travel'

~So I'll update you on my current tour :D

This time I was in Belgium for the convention FACTS. After set-up (and trying to get the organisers to remove a big power outlet thing from my booth because I didn't need power, which took two hours and a lot of waving my arms around) I was really looking forward to the show, which is literally one of the most friendly. I think it helps with the Belgians having a similar sense of humor to the English - well they laugh at my jokes anyway! ;)

It turned out to be a crazy busy weekend! I sold out of a lot of stuff on Saturday - sorry to the people who came on Sunday wanting prints - I'll bring more next year! (Pretty sure rockstars can't sell out of songs, though? XD) 
The stall was only two people deep at this time so I managed to nip out and get this shot:

and here's the view from my side! (so many smiles, see why I love it here?)

Some super things happened - The awesome Naomi cosplayed as my TOXIC painting, and looked great doing it!

I got to meet Elien, who has a tattoo which was inspired by my art :heart: (what an honour)

Thanks to everyone who supported me during the show, including my helper Lisa. I'm looking forward to next year already :) (where I will bring enough prints for everyone, I promise)

The day after the convention I decided to have a day exploring Brussels (Having done Ghent and Brugge last year, both of which I thoroughly recommend)

My hotel was pretty fancy! (It looks rockstar enough, but you can't see that everything was covered in dust XD)
Untitled by DestinyBlue

Being a fan of Art Nouveau, Brussels was an absolute treasure chest! This is one of the beautiful little cafes I found :heart:

...and of course the chocolate! This display from Neuhaus, a haute couture chocolatier, looked as beautiful as it did tasty. Unfortunately, I didn't get to try it; as while I would have loved to, the price tag was just for the true rockstars ;)

On the Eurostar back, I did a sketch inspired by the Art Nouveau and my first Pumpkin Spiced Latte XD (It's so hard to draw neat on a moving train XD)
Euro by DestinyBlue

So, and no sooner than I get home I have to jump on a plane again. (very rockstar ;))
Well to be honest, I wish this lifestyle game me more time to 'art' and less time to 'rockstar' XD

So I'm taking a plane to New York for New York Comic Con. Can't wait! :D

I'll be in the Artists Alley, table H13:

Nyccmao by DestinyBlue

H13. Haunted 13 :D Unlucky for some, lucky for me, since Halloweens round the corner we're gonna roll with it ;)

So Excited!

I will be at London MCM as well, I'll update you on my position after NY :D -After those shows I will have more time to 'art'! -Yhes! 

So I like how 'art rockstar' sounds but I don't think I'll update my CV with it (bring self employed I don't have a CV XD) and I would certainly like to get more of the 'art' thing done, and less of the 'rockstar' :)

Welcome to Autumn everyone, hope it's treating you well. Anything exciting happening in your life right now? :D I've updated you, now you have to update me ^-^

Have you ever thought of making themed art? I use your art for a lot of my avatars, with your ink there of coarse, but Halloween and Christmas are coming up soon and everyone is changing their pictures, so i was wondering if you have ever thought about it? xxx

Akokorochan Featured By Owner 1 day ago  Hobbyist General Artist
hiya! ^^ I was at the Glasgow comic con and I bought one of your prints! ;w;! I just wanted to let you know that you've been an absolute inspiration to me! I haven't talked to you before because I have been too shy, but I just wanted to say that I love your art!
Musa-Eyre Featured By Owner 1 day ago  Hobbyist General Artist
Excuse me, Miss, but I was wondering if you could do a tutorial or step-by-step on how you draw? Just wondering, thanks!

Dear God, the sweet girl reading this is kind and I'm proud of her. Please help her live life to the fullest and bless her in her chosen field. Now, you're on the clock. In 9 minutes something will make you happy. Please share this with 15 girls you love. Remember, only for *girls*. If I don't get this back I'm obviously not a close friend. Now, I have a game for you, it's been played since 1977. Once you read this, you have to send it to 15 people. Your next 5 days will be like this: Day 1 - you will wake up to the biggest shock of your life. Day 2 - you will cross paths with an old friend you have missed. Day 3 - you will find yourself with a lot of money. Day 4 - your day will be perfect. Day 5 - the love of your life will kiss you. ....if you don't forward this, your next 5 days will be the exact opposite. Don't break this. Send it to 14 friends in 10 minutes. It's not that hard. Whoever sent this to you must care about you.

In my art class at school we have to do this assignment where we write a paragraph about our favorite artist (and include pictures of them and their work). I thought I would choose you because your art has always been something I looked forward to seeing and because you are such an inspiration. And now, after going through everything I could to learn more about you and your life, I realize that you're even more inspiring than I once thought. You are arguably my absolute favorite artist of everyone I've ever seen anywhere in my entire life. Art is something that I'm extremely passionate about, and I truthfully look up to you as a personal role model~ I hope you have a great day, and I hope this message brings as big a smile to your face as you never fail to bring to mine :) Keep rockin'!!:heart::heart:
