Here is my annual end of the year art survey, month by month my best or favorite pieces. I guess I technically drew every month but they were commissions or sketches or just too ugly to spotlight, haha. I didn’t have a very good year in terms of improving technique, but I drew a lot of okayish videogame fanart for conventions, a lot of inktober pieces and that’s all right. Next year, if I ever get my computer fixed, I want to focus on anatomy of hands, doing traditional inking with sumi-e and calligraphy and just really taking my coloring/rendering to the next level. But if things don’t work out drawing-wise, which is likely, I may do something else with video editing and crafting instead! We’ll see…
Now here are some of the halfway decent fanart pieces I drew during Inktober, which I technically finished by the way! I drew something from almost start to finish every day, even if some things were adding to a previous piece, lol. I did enjoy fiddling with traditional media, not only ink but pencil, markers and white-out, and feel ready to get back in the game some day!

Hello all! I will be vending in the mini artist alley at the Kinokuniya Otaku-tober event in Carrollton, Texas! Please stop by and say hi and get your spoopy art! It sounds like it will be a very small but fun event which is most importantly free, plus there’s all these great places to eat and shop in the area.

I started these “Tales of” series bust drawings for button badges in March of last year, with a few of the better waist-up figures making their way into prints and bookmarks. Here are a few that I was super proud of! Be sure to buy them as buttons here!Zaveid from Tales of Zestiria Leon from Tales of Destiny Klarthe from Tales of Phantasia And of course, Velvet from Tales of Beseria
Just an FYI for those of you wishing to support charitable causes, I did not upgrade my tictail shop, so the new address is:
All items for sale at my tictail are still on sale at etsy.com, same address:
My storenvy (http://alexithemia.storenvy.com/) is currently being redone, so please use the tictail or etsy shop for the time being, thanks!
All proceeds from my online shop sales go to charitable causes and have been so for over the past year, but specifically until 09/19/2017, enamel pin sales will go to flooding/storm/fire relief in the United States and around the world. I am adding freebies with each purchase until supplies run out, so please signal boost if you can! I have original watercolor paintings, photo prints, stickers, handmade keychain straps, some fake nails and hair stuff (not made by me), jewelry to be added.
Here is the original tictail shop link (which will expire on the 19th lol)
But if you prefer to buy on Etsy or Storenvy, here are those links as well!
Thanks again to everyone who has ever bought something, know that it went to a good cause, and to everyone who shares my posts, that means a lot to me!
For International Sailor Moon Day on August 5, my friends and I worked on a magical girls zine starring various heroines from shoujo manga and anime series! I will post previews when the zine gets printed, but be assured it looks darling and full of whimsy and girl power. (Previews of my 2 contributions can be seen on my art twitter.)
Here is a photo of my sweet lolita gold enamel charms, just came in. One set of charms printed darker than the proof, but I am ridiculously proud of all of these, they’re just so shiny and elegant! Please check them out for sale at my webshop: https://tictail.com/insomniel/sweet-lolita-gold-cloisonne-enamel-pin
