My name is Mandy. I enjoy carbonated drinks and the sound of plastic bags opening. Yea, I am that horrible person opening a candy wrapper in a library. I wont write my whole biography here, but I am a self-taught artist attempting to make her way into the art world. The work I do is in a lot of different mediums (Pencil, Pen, Ink washes, Acrylic, etc.) If you have any questions about the tools I use feel free to ask!

Many people make art a "goal" in some shape or form. But, it is simply not enough to say "I want to do this and get paid". Or, "I dream to someday be an artist". I don't think you are willing enough for anything in life unless you are ready to fight and bleed for it. This blog will follow my own personal struggles as an artist and hopefully some of my achievements as well. Tips? Ideas? Crack the whip.

 

Heart Container NecklaceJust a quick post before I head out to work. I have been on a roll of making necklaces that I would have loved to received. Giving myself gifts? I posted this up on my Etsy shop in case anyone would like one too since I am making a bunch:

Will have more necklaces up as soon as I finish playing with these jump rings. Mostly Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past. If you have any requests of things you would want just post a comment. Maybe I should do a giveaway? That sounds fun :D

My Work Space (Aka, the Kitchen table)

 Someday I will be able to afford a proper desk. Just thought I would show you guys my happy little space in the kitchen. It is a very colorful and happy place. I always think of the song playing in “Toon Town”. The pictures I have are of some of the larger sprites I have done and if my sprites were put in any magazines. It is so fun to have video game objects in my life, it really makes me smile every time I pass the kitchen :)
