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:

Meet me at

-awarded July 2015
'ello, how're y'all? '':D

I write this from the future! 

10 hours into the future in fact, I touched down onto Australian soil a few days ago, and my body clock hasn't been the same since! I need a good 9 hours a night, and have has about 5 in total since I got here, my face has pretty much looked like grumpy cats since I arrived. But I'll get back to that...

So, just wanted to do a little recap of what's been going down, and what I've been up to, keeping you informed ^-^

So, MCM London Comic Con happened! My hometown show. It took ages to prepare for, but was certainly worth all those hours spent printing and sorting! :heart:

Bag by DestinyBlue

I met this lovely lady who had the most awesome bag and phone background (10 points to her!) Sweet bag but even sweeter grin :D

Ok by DestinyBlue

A cosplay of my art! :D Yes! If you look closely you can see the jigsaw piece on her face an arm as well ;) (100 points to her! XD) I get crazy excited when people do thing like this for a show! XD :heart:

Mcmcrew by DestinyBlue
Thanks to Team Blue London! Lots of hard work goes on behind the scenes, I couldn't do it alone :heart: (and that includes everyone who supported me at London, thank you)

I was given probably the most thoughtful give I've ever received from Jo and Gem (please let me know your DA names again, I don't have them with me ;-;)

Gift by DestinyBlue

It was hard not to open them all at once, but I have kept them safe so I can open them when I need to :heart: Thank you so much, this really touched me :hug:

So after the convention I fancied some KFC:
Kfc by DestinyBlue

Seems legit...

Then I hopped on a plane (or two) to the land down under! :D

Cloo by DestinyBlue

I made it to the future! it's pretty, but not that much different ;)
Fbsydney by DestinyBlue


Thanks to everyone in London for making that my best show ever, you actually took the award back from Sydney 2014.... well the Sydney shows up this weekend so let's see what you've got Sydneysiders! :D

Supanova1 by DestinyBlue

Supanova! Both Sydney and Perth (No I wont be at Brisbane or Adelaide, Australia twice in one year is enough XD)

Update: -PERTH MAP! :heart:

Perthmap by DestinyBlue

After a crazy busy show in Sydney (thanks everyone!) I am low on stock for Perth, so if there is a specific piece you are wanting to go home with then please come along early! :heart:
Now I'm going to try and sleep again... GrumpyCat 

Peace, love and desynchronosis,
Blue xx

My work as an artist takes me all over the UK (and the world) to many events and conventions, I love drawing, traveling and people, which is great because I get enjoy them all doing what I do! :)

~I couldn't do this with out your support! Thank you all so much *bows deeply*

FAQ

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: fav.me/d5x4z8h

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: www.storenvy.com/DestinyBlue
I also have a Society6, where my art can be found on phone cases, pillows, mugs and the like society6.com/destinyblue

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: fav.me/d5x4z8h

Thank you! :heart:
