Artist's Choice - Best of 2018 by Amy Crook

2019 is here!

Not gonna lie, 2018 wasn’t a great year for your artist, Dear Readers. But there were some good things to come out of it, like the art you see below. There were only six Floating Galleries with new art in them, and so I’ve chosen 2 from each to highlight.

Here’s hoping that 2019 brings us beautiful art, many moments of joy, and days filled with kindness.

So, what’s in store for 2019?

There will be a Gallery of some sort in March with all-new art, including pieces inspired by Doctor Who, Mr. Rogers, and more. New work is filtering into my Etsy shop slowly. My commissions queue is being whittled down, and someday will reopen, but there’s already a wait list (sorry not sorry). Patreon continues to be a wonderful source of support and ideas, and they’ll get their own state of the thing post soon.

Also, I’ll do my annual kitties post in a few days. =^~,~^=

Mainly I’m going to try to recover from 2018 and get my art and my life back on track. Thanks for sticking with me!
