It's been a while since I was last able to publish an update here. Mostly, this has been due to a few different things like:
- Purchasing and moving into a new house
- Handling new projects and management-related tasks at work
- New puppers (she is big and fluffy and a HANDFUL)
The new house has been an absolute blessing, and I'm so glad I took this dive into homeownership. The apartment we just left was an extremely cramped 2 bed/2 bath. Near the end of our tenancy, I barely wanted to look at my desk because the room served as my office, my boyfriend's office, a kennel room for the pup, and extra storage. Doing artwork in the living room was no better because the lighting was atrocious. This made it nearly impossible to finish traditional work past sundown.
Now, I have a full room to myself to use as my office space. This means I can set up separate stations for digital art and traditional art, allowing me to keep my computer space at least somewhat free of clutter. I also have more space to keep my art books and manuals there instead of essentially storing everything in the living room. But, above all: the LIGHTING. It's SO much brighter!
