Happy Thanksgiving!

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 28, 2013, 4:21 PM


Howdy!

:rose: ------------- :rose:

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! It's that time of the year again -- my favorite holiday and a day to be thankful. Of course, we should be thankful everyday for every blessing we receive, no matter how small. What are you thankful for?

A couple of weeks back, I attended the CTN Expo with my dad and sister, as I do every year. The experience was a fun one, as usual. I spent an extra $25 that I didn't intend to spend, but the flipbook I acquired for it was just too cute to pass up. Additionally, I had my portfolio looked over by a nice lady from PowerHouse Studios in Texas. She really liked my animal sketches and said that she wanted to see them animated. She also said that I could use more life drawings in my portfolio. Animation I'll have to think about, but I've definitely wanted to take more life drawing classes, and I think, after several years, I'll finally be able to afford it soon. A lot of walking and running around will be required, but I want to do this.

These last couple of weeks have actually been very, very trying, both emotionally and physically. I shall spare you the details of the negatives, but not of the positives. To put it succinctly, God has been speaking to me a lot, both through people and personally, about standing strong, getting more into His Word, telling me how much He loves me, and how I need to not give up. All very important things. He also told me that He loves my artwork! Pretty much cried at that. :thanks:

So, I'm planning to attend a youth group at a local church in my area. Here's hoping it's just what I need to move forward, because I just... need some friends in this area. Loneliness has been hitting me harder than usual. I think it would really help to have someone my age to talk to. Not that all of my online friends aren't wonderful. It's just that speaking to someone in person will help me out a lot, as it's done in the past.

To close this journal entry, I'm pleased to say that my artwork has gotten a little more notice. My dad was at the Long Beach Con this past weekend, and he sold three of my prints there! An extra $15 isn't much, but money is money. I'm just flattered that people are willing to pay for my art. Said sales have encouraged me to want to draw up more compositions to turn into prints and sell for next year's Con(s). Additionally, my dad, who is a professional storyboard artist, likes the board projects (that he's given me) that I've completed and says that I'm ready to do storyboard revisions in the business right now, so I have every intention to upload the storyboards I've currently done to show here, as well as continue working on more. I've also gotten a commission by a friend to do a piece of work, so, needless to say, all of this is very encouraging. Thank you all for your continued support of my work, as well! I appreciate every kind comment and bit of critique I receive, as always! :aww:

That's all, folks!

- Mitch

Well, my family and I did spend some time together at a café. Maybe not the thrill of our lives but we enjoyed ourselves all the same. I'm sorry to hear your Valentine's Day didn't turn out so swell, though. On the bright side, that day's over and done now, so cheer up! :hug:
