Hello from Day 52 of self-isolation! This week has been the first week since self-isolation started that I haven’t been crazy busy juggling pin samples, Kickstarter promotion tasks, etc. The final campaign for the Birthstone Goddesses Pin series on Kickstarter wrapped up this month and I’m celebrating finishing up this next phase of this project! All that’s left now is to produce the pins and ship them out.
Next, I’m excited to start work on the next phase of the Birthstone Goddesses with some new art I hope to create in a more fantasy vein for the art book, plus the long-awaited wall calendar. Wonderful things are on the horizon, which I hope to work on this year and release next year via Kickstarter when things are hopefully a little more stable for everyone!
But first, I’m enjoying some downtime! May is going to be about letting myself rest and relax to recharge some of my burnt out batteries now that the Kickstarter gauntlet is officially over. We had been planning a trip to Myrtle Beach to celebrate, but until it’s safe to travel, we’re having a staycation instead. I’m amusing myself catching up with shows like The Expanse and Dr. Stone and playing video games like Overcooked 2 and Bloodborne.
I’m also excited for letting my muse off the leash to explore something new for a little while! I’m planning to take on some short term art topics for May, including the May Sketch A Day event (which is where you try to sketch anything once a day in May), plus these other fun ideas:
- 6 Fanarts Challenge – Drawing fan art from suggestions! I’ve already drawn two out of the six portraits and will share the finals here when I’m done.
- 6 Outfits Challenge – Draw 6 outfits suggested for one of my characters. I’ll be taking suggestions here soon!
- 5 Minute Artist – Draw a little portrait and share a little about yourself as an artist!
- Color Palette Challenge – Pick a color palette from this site and create a piece around it!
Along with posting the next few Birthstone Goddesses related Rewards, I’ll be sharing my adventures with art memes in May. Feel free to do them along with me!

How have you all been holding up? How are you keeping yourselves busy? I’m looking forward to having a little quiet time for art and introspection now that this phase of my project is well and truly finishing up!
More art soon!
