Monthly Update August 2018 | Re-Prioritizing, Final Stages of my Tarot Deck, and Why I’m Staying With Etsy

Hey guys! It’s Julian! I have a lot of updates to post in this one, so let’s just get to it. Re-Prioritizing Last month (July) I attempted to do World Watercolor Month. I did not, in fact, succeed in doing World Watercolor Month – in that I didn’t complete it. I do feel that it… Continue reading Monthly Update August 2018 | Re-Prioritizing, Final Stages of my Tarot Deck, and Why I’m Staying With Etsy

MONTHLY Update June 2018 – Changes to Site Format + Art Updates

Hey guys. It’s Julian. And let me tell you, having two jobs – running my online presence, and working a day job – is EXHAUSTING. I don’t mean to complain though – quite the opposite; I am grateful for these opportunities. I just wanted to explain my reasons for posting less lately. While I have… Continue reading MONTHLY Update June 2018 – Changes to Site Format + Art Updates

Weekly Update 4-30-18 | Time Off, Game On!

Hey guys, it’s Julian. And I have been away. Well, not really away. I’ve been right here, mostly making and packing and listing stuff for my Etsy shop. I hit 25 sales and I think Etsy’s algorithms must have (for some dumb reason) rewarded that, because all of a sudden I’m hecka busy and getting… Continue reading Weekly Update 4-30-18 | Time Off, Game On!

Weekly Update 4-9-18: Life Drawing, Book-Binding, and Even More Tarot Cards

Hey guys! Julian here. And have I got sketches for you! In the olden days, when I was on DeviantART all the time and emo was a serious thing, we used to post what we crudely called “sketchdumps” – essentially collages of sketches we’d done over the past week/weeks/month, but which weren’t “nice” enough to… Continue reading Weekly Update 4-9-18: Life Drawing, Book-Binding, and Even More Tarot Cards

Weekly Update 3/26/18 – Arteza Brush Pens, The Wheel of Fortune, and a Speedpaint!

Hey everyone! I’ve been puzzling over the ongoing issue of what watercolor to use for my in-progress Tarot deck project, and I’ve settled on yet another option. I’m not using watercolors. Yep, found an alternative. But it’s still what a lot of people call “watermedia” – like watercolor pencils or diluted inks, this option requires… Continue reading Weekly Update 3/26/18 – Arteza Brush Pens, The Wheel of Fortune, and a Speedpaint!

Weekly Update 3-19-18 | Tarot Art, Watercolor Supplies, and Starting-Over Syndrome

[Pictured: My workspace, a small-ish blue desk with piles of sketchbooks, a cup of tea, various jars for ink and water, piles of watercolor paints, and the original of my Ace of Cups illustration for The Julian Tarot.] Hey guys! It’s been a while. Sorry for radio silence…I’ve been painting. 🙂 Yes, painting. A LOT… Continue reading Weekly Update 3-19-18 | Tarot Art, Watercolor Supplies, and Starting-Over Syndrome

Weekly Update 3/6/18 – Anxiety, Distraction, and Missing Deadlines – but YES the comic is FINALLY available!

Hey guys! Julian here. It has been an exhausting month. Couple of months. Year? I don’t know. I’m pretty much too exhausted from anxiety to really calculate it! My (clinical) anxiety has been overwhelming lately and I’ve struggled to even go to work. BUT. Many good things are happening too. I had gotten badly distracted… Continue reading Weekly Update 3/6/18 – Anxiety, Distraction, and Missing Deadlines – but YES the comic is FINALLY available!
