First thing you may have (possibly) noticed is: "who the heck is this person in my inbox".
My previous username for the past 10 years was Kroobie. I felt it would be most appropriate to use my first and last name and keep it consistent across all the visual things that I do (since I've been doing freelance and in-house design work now, as well..and those people know me as Cris and not Kroobie!).
So...life. I'll make it brief.
In December I graduated from a two year program at a local college with a degree in Design and have started up the art machine now that I'm not bogged down with 5 classes per term on top of work. I'm currently doing some online college for Marketing and have relocated to be with my long-distance partner, we're getting married on Halloween
. I have two pet rats named Bowie and Sinclair and started working on my 1998 TOMY Pokemon figurine collection. I also discovered things about myself that made a huge
difference in my quality of life such as new ways to care for my health...I can finally say I'm on the right track.My goals at this point are to push myself to become a better illustrator, artist and person. I'd love to get to know other artists that can challenge my skills and inspire me.
I'm going to do my best to post art a few times a week and start engaging with my watchers and followers again. I'm starting a Picarto account so that I can stream work and chat with you guys. I really missed having the proper time to get involved with my own artwork and getting to know so many different artists. I fell off the face of the Earth without warning and things were rough and scary for some time.
As far as the emergency commissions from the past, I received assistance from some generous commissioners (you know who you are, thank you again) and am now back on my feet and ready to start kicking ass again.
If you frequent other sites more than DA, I can also be found/followed on:FurAffinity • Tumblr • Facebook • BehanceTo new and old faces alike: How do you challenge yourself artistically? Because I could really use a kick in the butt to get out of my artistic comfort zone.
