For the past few years, I've been doing an Art Summary to show a piece from each month, so I can reflect on my artwork from the year. This year has been incredible for me as far as starting my art career. I feel so blessed to have had so much support. I've created 6 animations, and hundreds of drawings, started my website, sold quite a few pieces of artwork, and created album covers and banners. Thank YOU, those of you out there reading this and supporters of me, for having faith in what I do. Yes, I am still a beginner, but just knowing that people out there believe in me is more than anything I could ask for. And not only that, but some are people I really look up to, and inspire me.
I started this year with a dream to start my own website, create more animations, and just doodle much! And reflecting on that dream, I definitely think my year has been successful. Yes, my personal life did have it's ups and downs, but I like to think of the positive. Putting the negativity behind me, and just remembering that I have a passion that I can go to when I'm feeling down. Thanks for spending this past year with me, and here's to a wonderful 2014! Cheers. :]
So what are my New Years Resolutions?
1. Get in shape! (generic answer...but hey! We all need to...)
2. Make more animations.
3. Sell more art and save money for art school.
4. Doodle much.
Have a lovely New Year, everyone!
I wanted to make an animation during my winter break, so after some extreme determination, I managed to finish this baby in 5 days! I've been a fan of Traci Hines for 5 years now, and totally love her LLFAHM series. It was totally necessary to make an animated version! So, alas, Hipster Mermaid Episode 1: The CARTOON! was born! I'm so stoked that Traci loved it enough to post it on her own youtube channel. If you have some time, check it out.
I can't believe I've made a total of 6 animations this year. SIX!!! 2013 has been such a great year for my artwork, and I'm so glad I have so many supporters. Thanks for always being here for me, and here's to a FINtastic 2014! ;-] *cheers*
Also, just a reminder that tomorrow will be the last day on this site. *cries* I'm moving to www.katidoodlesmuch.com and getting a new look! Great things coming my way in the new year, and I couldn't feel more blessed. <3
I hope you all had a terrific Christmas! Mine was great. Quiet at home with my family, lots of tasty food, and a warm fireplace! Best way to spend the day...
Now that Christmas is over, I've put all the ornaments in my store on sale for 50% off! Price has already been reduced. So, if you wanna start getting presents for next year, or just want some new ornaments, head on over to Kati's Christmas Corner! And remember, I've got custom orders available and there are plenty of other items in my store! Thanks for making my Holiday Season very successful as far as sales go. I was quite pleased with the outcome! Better than what I had imagined, so thank you thank you thank you! xo
Just wanted to wish you all a Happy Christmas! I'm so thankful for all of you who've supported me over the years. I'm so blessed to have so many kind people in my life who have faith in me and my artwork! It means the world to me. I'm writing this blog post to let you all know that I've got some exiting things planned for the next few weeks! First of all, I'm finally switching to www.katidoodlesmuch.com! That's right! I finally bought my own domain name. Also, I have a new animation that I'll be working on during my break from school. I'm hoping to get it done before going back. So, hopefully I can do it! :D It's a bit different from my normal ones, and I'm going to leave it a surprise until it's finished. I'll probably post a few work in progress (WIP) photos along the way when I get the chance! I'm very excited for this project, so I can't wait to start working on it.
So with that, once again Merry Christmas, and happy holidays! See you in 2014.
That's right, folks! Christmas is just around the corner. Since this will be the last weekend for orders before they'll be too late for xmas, I decided to have a sale. And it's my biggest sale of the season! Use the coupon code XMASISCOMING at my store to get 25% off all orders. This will last all weekend. And I'd suggest hurrying if you wanted to get custom orders in for the holidays as well. They take longer, so be prepared!
Have a lovely rest of holiday season.
Happy gifting! xo
(PS the gingerbread man ornament promotion is still going on as well! :] )
Surprise! I know I had a Black Friday sale, but since my store is online, I decided it was only right that I held a Cyber Monday sale as well. AND it's starting a few hours early! So, above is the discount code redeemable at my store. Happy Shopping! xo
