Year End Journal! Woo!2015, What a year!Though it's been very stressful to take up so many new responsibilities with work, owning a house and caring for our two crazy dogs ( one of which is a full-energy puppy! ) the efforts have really paid off in all areas.We will be at even more conventions next year; On the list are USA, France, England and of course here in Sweden too! Specifics to follow, closer to the actual dates, It's truly exciting though!Not that this year didn't have it's bad parts, as I mentioned before it has been quite stressful.And when part of my family cut me out of their lives, for reasons I will never fully understand, I can not deny my heart was broken.A big part of my year was spent trying to get over the shock and grief of their decision.However, the good outweighs the bad by a longshot!In April I got married to the love of my life!Even though we have been living together for several years,being able to officially call my best friend "husband" is a wonderful feeling. :h

Memory of my dreamI had a really unsettling dream just now.2045, I’m still happily married, I’ve published several books, Geo and I have a musically talanted adult son.Problem is, I have no memories of the past 30 years.
My husband and our son do not get along and I have no clue why.
The “kid” is very distant and though not impolite he doesn’t really listen when I talk.
Plus he is a stranger to me, I don’t have any memories of his childhood, I don’t know his favorite food or film. I donot know when he took his first steps or what his first word was.I know I love him, but that is all, I can’t even recall his name now.I tried to tell my husband and he was just sighing and acting like he heard me worry about this same thing hundreds of times.
“It will come back to you, here are some photos…”I tried to pretend to remember things when neighbours and family talked with me, by nodding and smiling, but it was diffi
SleepI want it.
All is wellIt's hard to get anything done these days but I do try Hopefully my art production will pick up after Geo, Linda and I attend the Imaginism workshop in October.I am looking forward to it so much!
TrttMellon the puppy is bouncing arond all over the place it is hard to find time to draw anymore, but hopefully things will pick back up in october after Geo, Linda and I go down to the Imaginism workshop!Really looking forward to it!
QuestionaireHow long have you been on DeviantArt?9 years apparently...!What does your username mean?It is my real life middle name.It is completely made up, but I'd like to pretend it describes the winter coat on fuzzy little animals that they later shed in warmer weather.Describe yourself in three words.silly, friendly, confused.Are you left or right handed?RightWhat was your first deviation?Gragh, the werewolf boy in the rain.What is your favourite type of art to create? chubby baby creatures.If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?Animation? Does that count? Oil painting? I guess those are more techniques than styles though... caricature? That might be a useful skill What was your first favourite?I can not remember. May have to dig through my favourites to find out later though What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?Digital, fairytale themes... then if I am fangirling over something I will search specifically for things relate
Maja the Busy BeeAs always, sorry for being away so much!Convention season was fantastic! A lot of new contacts and opportunities were made!And I am currently working very hard to complete projects that I wish I could tell you more about but I have to wait a little longer! On a personal front the house takes up a lot of our time, there is just always something that needs fixing and tending to.And we are expecting a new little family member in a couple of months; Nalle's great nephew will be joining us you see!Taking care of a little puppy is going to be even more hard work, so I will most likely be even less active on DA this summer.As stressed and worn as I feel, I am very thankful for the reasons and I am truly happy.

One Year Laterhttp://koili.deviantart.com/journal/Well-546094597Exactly one year ago, I was alone in my room, crying. Panicking about what was going to happen in a few hours. I was going to leave behind the only life I knew.One year ago, I was covered in grease, sweat and dirt. I showered once a month. I barely ate. My clothes and bedding were never washed. I was awoken or kept up every night by my drunken mother who would scream at me for no reason. Every night ended in tears until I passed out from exhaustion. I know she tried to be a good mom, and it was my fault she started drinking in the first place.I had known :iconchillaid: for five years prior. We had gotten close in 2013 over Animal Crossing: New Leaf. We both found each other at the right time. Our friendship flourished from there. We roleplayed every night and bonded so much. We got so close. I considered her my sister.:iconchillaid: would hear what my mom would do over Skype. She would stay up with me for the entire night comforting
What's with 'Studying from Life'!?This is the revisiting of a news article I wrote a few years back.Allow me to begin this article by mentioning that this was written with aspiring professionals in mind. For those of you who wish to pursue art as a hobby with no intention to make it a career choice, I have no doubts in your abilities as an artist, but art for you is a pleasure seeking thing. I would never wish to turn it into something even remotely reminiscent of 'stressful work'--as a hobby should never come to that. So for you hobbyists, feel free to take this article in, but by no means feel obliged to apply the information if you do not find enjoyment in doing so.As for you aspiring pros, this is an inevitable and unavoidable step you must take in pursuit of your career. This is your job--and if you don't like it, you're probably pursuing the wrong career!But I digress.I, like many of you--strive to be a professional in the field of art. In particular, I am an illustrator. I've been fortunate enough to
Blerf...Well, that didn't work out very well!I am terrible at Deviant-arting.Or Arting over all…..or Life-ing. Life is so overwhelming, blah!I'll focus on the life bit some more and get back to the art when I have that stuff more in order.Sorry! >_<
