I wanted to take a moment and say thank you to everyone for all of the wonderful birthday wishes You all are so sweet, and never fail to make my day with your kind words and thoughtfulness! I had a wonderful birthday, filled with cake, cookware, and a very cute dog (lady-of-faerietales.tumblr.com…).
It's hard to believe that it's June already! I'm doing some freelance illustration and sewing work this summer while I look for full-time employment to take me through my MA. I'm currently open for commissions as well: painting, illustration, fashion/costuming, etc. So if you're interested, just send me a message here or on my FB page (www.facebook.com/reineharu)
I'll also be posting my con schedule for the year soon. I think I'll be going to a lot more cons this year, and I always enjoy meeting people! I know that I'll be at Escapist Expo in Durham, NC Oct. 4-6 (more info here: www.escapistexpo.com/ ) probably doing Kenzi from Lost Girl, Galadriel, and some sort of Daenerys. I'll post a more complete schedule later on in the summer.
Also in the news is that I'm moving soon! I have an adorable 2-bedroom house with a small garden that I'll be moving into later this summer, I just have to get some more work done on it first. I love interior decorating, so I'll definitely be posting a house tour/shots of the new studio once I'm all moved in on my tumblr (lady-of-faerietales.tumblr.com…). It's so fun picking out paint colors and perusing pinterest/tumblr/apartment therapy for inspiration!
What are your creative projects for the summer? Personally, I love the bright, happy colors of summer, as well as the wonderful flowers that bloom this time of year (around here it's gardenia and jasmine); they make me want to make colorful paintings and long, flowy dresses~ Ice cream is also pretty great. Not going to lie.
Sending you all many happy thoughts~
