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:

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: destinyblue.storenvy.com/

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:

I spent my birthday around some of the most beautiful plants in the world at Kew Botanical Gardens. A a good reminder that I'm still growing too...

I can very happily say - yes - I will be at MCM London Comic Con! There will be some new drawings ready for you (one I should have online very soooon)

Come and hang out at booth DB1, yes, not even kidding, my booth number is DB1, how perfect is that! (very easy to remember 😉) It's near the Comic Village like usual.

I often have people tell me they're too scared to come and say hello, or they think they have to buy something to come to the stall. Please don't worry, I love to chat, and am just a strange blue girl looking to connect with others 😊 If the booth is busy, just stand there a bit, and I'll get round to you - it's kind of like a bar! XD

I'll be selling the usual prints; But this time (and this time only) I'm bringing some canvases of some of my older drawings. Some of you might remember, but in around 2014 I sold canvases of my work. 

Cann by DestinyBlue

While I loved the look of them, they turned out to be hard to transport to shows and expensive to ship. So I stopped doing them, and then depression came hard and I just had boxes of them collection dust for years... Well I've sorted them out! I'm not printing anymore, but selling what I have. They are fine art quality, 12 x 16 inches, 2.5 inches deep. Sold first come first serve at the stall (not online, sorry) for just £39.99. Below are the artwork available, and there are only 1 or 2 of each!canvasesDONE by DestinyBlue

I'm also working hard on an exclusive print for the show! With the success of the Timed Release exclusives last year, I'll be doing the same thing again this year. So the print will be available to order online for the same time the show it open (Friday 25th - Sunday 27th) So eveyone who is keen to get one can own them ^_^

So who's coming to say hello at MCM?!  Franziska  :iconblueheartplz:  

Peace, Love and Preparations,
Blue

You are such an inspiring and beautiful person. I hope to follow in your footsteps and become a wonderful artist like you! Thank you for being you. And no matter what us as fans are always here for you. Through the dark and the light. My favourite piece by you is ‘Psychotic Depression’, I can relate to it on such a high level. Lots of love and stay strong💙

Hi, Blue. It was nice to meet you at MCM. That day was the first time I saw your art and I love it. So I bought the canvas of Toxic. I have a difficult time in crowds, but you cheered me up that day. Thank you.

Thank you so much for today! Meeting you today honestly changed my life; you're beyond inspiring. I haven't stopped smiling all day haha. I'm going to be hanging the canvas up as soon as I can, and get back into my drawing to hopefully show you some day. You and your art mean so much to me and I don't think I'll ever be able to express it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Blue. Thank you so much.. :heart:

Your art art is absolutely wonderful both in their message and style. I can definitely relate to what you say in each thing you draw. Keep up the good work!
