Hello! My name is Jennifer G., but you can call me Jenny! I am a bit of a nerd and have a huge love for video games, anime, comics, animated films, ect. My passion is creating in a 2D format and telling stories through illustration. I am learning everyday and I plan to keep it that way for the rest of my life!

Busy weekend~

I did these within the past week or so, but this weekend has just been SO action packed and busy. Next weekend wont be an exception with Turkey Day and all that fun jazz, so I am gunna art it up a bit tonight, tomorrow and Tuesday. Hopefully, Weds. before or after I finish baking the pies for Turkey Day, because I also love to bake. I'll bring my sketchbook Thursday so if I get time to sketch I will. :) Went to CTNx today, with hardly no money to spend! You have NO idea  how hard it was for me to not buy so much beautiful artwork and support artists.  One day, I want to be among these great artists and talk to other people about art and listen if they have any stories to tell. If there is someone, that is like me, lacks confidence,  has a brain that is constantly telling them they can't do it. I will tell them, never give up. If this is your dream don't ever back down. If you are afraid and lack confidence right now, don't stop. Even if it takes you a week or two to overcome your fear to start again, you are continuously trying and that is what matters. If I can get there, so can you! I know one day, my constant chipping away will get me there. No matter how dark, I will eventually always see a light.
