Hey everyone, hope you're all well /kiss u all over/ I just have a few updates, etc...
I've finally got an active artblog running on tumblr!
It would mean a lot to me if you followed me there, you can see all my recent art too (I don't upload to dA that much anymore, but I will get round to it). Anyway, here's the link:LULU'S SUPER ARTBLOG WOW
If you have an artblog too, let me know I'll follow you back - lets support each other as artists. and I also love petplay, Little, nature, health, travel and 60s blogs, so if you have a blog like that, you should totally show me! >///<
Woah woa I'm going to Japan next week! I'll be staying in Shinjuku in Tokyo and I'll be home at the end of March. I'll be posting a lot of photos/trip updates on my tumblr (link above) in case you want to see what I'm getting up to. My main concern is visiting the bunny cafe aaahhhhha. I think I really want to go Sanrio Puroland and Tokyo Disneyland too haaha I am actually a small child. The shrines and gardens look so lovely too. Ohmygosh there's actually so much I want to do out there, I hope I have time for it all. If any of you guys have been before (and I know some of you have!) then I'd love any advice/tips/recommendations from you<3 I really, really need to brush up on my (very weak) Japanese too, I'm gonna be brave and try and speak it out there >u<
I'm not sure what my other travel plans are atm. I've been working a lot and saving up, but the flights and accommodation in Tokyo is very expensive, so I'm not sure what else I can afford beyond that. I'd really love to explore Indochina, they look like beautiful places mmmmm... /muses to self/
My original graphic novel NOTHING LAND is making some real progress. At the moment, it's exclusively readable here
, but I will be uploading it to dA at a later date.
All my portfolio interviews have finished. I got all the offers I wanted (such an incredible relief ahah) including Bournemouth, Ravensbourne and Kingston. Right before I sent off my application, I found the perfect course for me - I know I said that before, but I honestly found an even better one!! It's at Kingston to study Illustration & Animation, where I'll be able to focus on 2D animation - my favourite. It's in London and I'll have the opportunity to spend a year abroad. I think the most exciting thing about it is, one of my favourite artists and inspirations, Julia Pott, was taught as a student there
I can't believe the same teachers who taught her will be teaching me /sobs uncontrollably and rolls around/
Anyway, it's quite a prestigious and small course - I've recently been informed they accept 65 students from around 800 applicants
So I'm incredibly lucky to have the chance to go there. Honestly guys, when I had the email to find out whether I got accepted or not, my heart was pounding so hard I was so nervous ;; I'm so so thrilled I was accepted! I'm confirmed my place there, so I'm all set and ready to move to London in September now!
Okay I think that's all from me.
tl;dr for new art and my travel updates/photo, please follow my tumblr: lulumightbite.tumblr.com/
wishing you a lovely week /waves/
