Heeey it's the bi-annual journal entry!
As you've probably seen, Es Astris 05 has been released. *Slumps in chair, slides down chair and onto the floor.* Now that that's off my shoulders I can move into creating some content for my online store.
I'm not sure if I've announced it on DA yet, but I quit my job of 7 years and am taking a big risk with some other projects and endeavours. What I need most of all is time. Time to build my store, products and designs to sell. Also my position as Head Of Design for the company I worked for wasn't giving me a lot of creative downtime to be, well... creative? Find me on LinkedIN: LinkedIN: Laura Hendry
I finally created a LinkedIN account, not sure how much use the platform will be for me, but feel free to connect! Buy Me A Coffee: Support Me
As you may have read on my Ex Astris entry, I've started a 'Buy me a coffee' page. $3 for a coffee helps support my efforts with Ex Astris and other story-based projects. Ex Astris takes over 100hrs to produce per chapter as well as all the purchases I make for 3D setting kits, sound effects and music etc... So a little goes a long way and I'll be eternally grateful.
I feel more comfortable offering a no-pressure donation scheme like 'Buy Me A Coffee' than Patreon which I feel puts lots of demands on both artists and people's hip pockets in the long run. I'll be posting the designs I make for Pink Syrup on DA as well so stay tuned to those. I also would love to do some fanart when I get the time too. (Geez it's been soooo long since I drew fan art!)
Oh and I bought a plotter/cutter to start producing my own stickers for sale too. You know, all this freedom and ideas I'm having trouble focusing. I blame it on the weather, I'm done with summer, please bring on Winter.
