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:
So, like someone who never wants to get any sleep, I hopped on a plane to the Australia, for a convention or two :)

Melboune and Gold Cost Supanova!




My Economy Class flight was more like having my own private jet ;) No one wanted to go to Melbourne this time of year from London, as it turns out it's colder over here XD

While trying to work out how to get to the Convention Showgrounds from Southern Cross Station, the first suggestion I got was to take a helicopter to Batman park. That is how cool Australia is :D

I haven't seen any spiders or crocodiles or anything that could kill me with a bite yet (unless you count the lady at the bus stop with the teeth)

I would share with you my beautiful photos of Melbourne, but I didn't take any any. I did take a photo of this guy though, because that is how eyes manga:

All ready for the weekend! I am in the Artists Alley for both events.

 Table A122

for Melbourne. It's on the end side right next to the dealers, so just wander between the dealers and the Alley and you'll see me :)

Thanks to my two wonderful helpers for helping set-up, they'll be around of the weekend and generally being helpful with everything and everyone ;) 

Right, think that's it. Really hope my body lets me sleep tonight, jet-lag adds an interesting elements to conventions, but not necessarily a pleasent one :)

Peace, love and timezones

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.

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:

Hi! We met brieftly on Saturday at Gold Coast Supanova. I must admit I wasn't familiar with you or your work but I was blown away by your art and how friendly you were, even amongst the sea of people at your stall. You took the time to talk to us and sign the pieces my sister and I bought, and even a hug! It was the standout experience of the convention for me. I just wanted to say thank you. You are a wonderful person and I shall be keeping an eye on your portfolio in the future.

Hi there! My account is new, but even without this account, I'd been falling in love with your artwork since a few years back. You inspired me, very much. I'm actually quite horrible at both drawing and painting, but I've always, always loved art. Art is honestly everything to me. I see everything as a work of art, even things as small a deal as rocks on the road. Your art is on a different level. With you and your work as my inspiration, I'll continue to practice making paintings and drawings and, hopefully, one day become as good as you. I'm in the Philippines, in Southeast Asia, and conventions here never happen, so I doubt you'll ever come here, but I'll be waiting! You probably won't even notice this, but hey! At least I tried to reach out to you. I hope my voice gets to you! Lots of love. <3

:iconthe-unknown-ruby: Is Hannah. My sister who cosplayed as a Little Sister (Bioshock) and met you at Supanova. You don't know how happy she was to see you and she just wanted to buy all of your prints. I'm glad that you made her holiday bright after the past week she had been very ill and we didn't know if she was going to be able to go. But as soon as she heard you were going she was fit as a fiddle and ready to go. You have really inspired her in art and I hope you can make her even more happy through the years.
