FIRST UPDATE: 2020 "HIATUS"
Hello all! First of all, I wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for all those who have supported me over the years. I know that I have posted infrequently online, but as many of you may or may not know, my main focus has been paying off my debts via my day job. I'm very close to be debt free, and working full time in a kitchen can be very physically draining. So, again, thank YOU for sticking by my side all these years, and to my new followers, thank you for joining me!
Second, as the title states, I will be taking a break from commission based works in 2020. Yup, that's right, 2020 is my year. I'll be focusing on projects and content of things I've always wanted to look into and create, but may have been a bit too hesitant due to social anxiety and how people may judge me as "cliche" or "boring". I'm at the point where I want to create what makes me happy. Things that I want to pour my heart into and will show.
Because of this hiatus, I'm currently attempting to sell the remainder of my current products. A select number of items will be brought back (Cool Beans for certain), but 2020 is going to be the year I focus on building up my online presence, taking a break from con hopping so much, and just creating what I want to create both in content and product.
ADDITIONALLY, I'm attempting to bring more attention to my Patreon as well. I'm currently in the process of revamping my current set up, to support the creation of monthly merchandise and products. In the first few months I will be creating stickers and small products like pins, and hope to eventually make larger pieces like bracelets, lanyards, and more.
Personally, I tend to stress a lot over my visibility in the fandom, and hope that in 2020 I can really gain traction and followers. I really do enjoy creating designs and products, and love bringing smiles to everyone's faces when they see my work...it's just been a stressful couple of years getting my debts paid off as fast as I can. With that said, I'm excited for what's in store and hope that it will be a fun and successful 2020. I hope you'll join me on my adventure :) -Luna
