Taking after sarehptar again, I wanted to make another resolution list for 2016. I'd say I kept 40% of my resolutions from last year and that's better than nothing. Hopefully this year will be even more productive.

1. Clean out my closet. Now it's just getting horderish.

2. Use up the majority of the tea I already have. I have a feeling this will be a resolution for every year.

3. Stay in touch with my friend who is joining the Peace Corp for 2 years :(

4. Post 15 new pieces of art here on DA (I did so many last year and I'm proud of it!)

5. Get my taxes figured out

6. Start walking again in the spring....or whenever I won't freeze my ears off.

7. Send/say more compliments to people online and irl

8. Organize my pile of art stuff in the basement. It looks like a grenade was thrown in an art supply store.

9. Start using my gouache set and get better at it.

10. Do work for 2 more gallery showings.

11. I will wake. up. earlier! Very serious about this one.

12. Become a more confident/overall better driver. It's hard to imagine a time where I won't hate driving but it needs to happen.

13. Reach 700 likes on my illustration facebook page. :thumbsup:

14. Sell more artwork.

15. Finish 2 book pages a month.

Amazing works I have discovered ~ Give them some much deserved love

This may be my last pretty journal because of how much DA has raised the premium "core" price. It's a shame, but the cost is just too much. :no:

My first children's book that I illustrated was published in December 2014 so please check it out if you're interested! I'm very excited and it's so rewarding to see a final product. If you're looking for any gifts for a child ages 2-7, look no further. Perfect for beginner readers! :D

You can buy it on Amazon or Barnes & Noble

My name is Faryn and I live in the tundra that is Minnesota. I’m a recent college grad currently working as a freelance illustrator trying to secure my dream job in art. I enjoy tea on an obsessive level, Florence + the Machine songs, working insanely hard to have time to do nothing, and the company of my two very fluffy cats, Cash and Finnegan. I love to meet new artists and gain friends who share and appreciate this passion so feel free to chat with me. Thanks for stopping by! :shamrock:

You're a great artist who use digital media on the same level (or in my opinion, even better) as traditional! Your work will be an inspiration for me, encouraging to keep drawing with a hope of not wasting my talent :)

Wish you all the best!!!

I just want to let you know, it has been about five years since I've made it back onto Deviantart, and in that time period there have been 800+ watches/notifications on my profile. Upon going through all the artwork that I have followed in the past, I needed to let you know your artwork is one of a kind and I love it. Your art is so beautiful and quite refreshing to see on my page.
Just a friendly reminder: Keep doing what you do best and keep inspiring!
