Artwork on magazine/commercial + RL

Sat Jul 16, 2011, 10:43 AM
Hi my dear watchers!

My artwork is featured on the cover of Artistik Magazine. Please check out the magazine website here :)


Also. Several of you have told me that this artwork + An Illusion + by akirakirai was used on a college commercial.
It's true. I was a little surprised because I didn't even know it was on the commercial in the first place lol.

About RL, I have basically no time to draw anymore, but I have AMAZING illustrations in my mind!!!! Midterms, preparing for finals, classes, etc. is eating up my life. After this term I'm entering my sophomore year of college.
Also, I will be moving out on the 28th with a lovely person and everybody knows how stressful and time-consuming moving is.

After I finish all of my midterms, I'm hoping to be able to finish my current list of commissions ASAP so I can start opening commissions again. I'm excited to start them. I just need to find the time to be able to. THEN I'll be able to start the illustrations I have in my head!!

Thank you guys so much for the support and for waiting for me while I'm going through this freakishly busy phase of my life.

-Aki :heart:

I hope that art issue is worked out too. I don't know, it feels like art theft in some far off life...? .__.

Congratulations and you totally deserve it! I can't say I'm surprised, because your work is truly amazing. But congrats all the same. This could be the beginning of big things for you. ^^ (*unsure of what other 'big things' you've already experienced, but hopefully you get what I mean XD*)

Best of Luck, and Try not to die of Moving. We just did it recently, and because I'm a young boy I had to do much heavy lifting, not to mention paining over the walls very carefully so we didn't get charged extra for little sister drawing on them.

Be very very careful.

Thank you so much dear! Glad you think so! :D

I really think so too, they should've at least asked me if it was ok to use the drawing in the commercial :|

And ah, the college is International Academy of Design and Technology
(for short, it's IADT LOLLL)

Yeah, no they definitely should have.

Yep, now I remember. My friend was thinking of going there, that's why I remember actually watching the commercial since normally I just tune out and ignore them lol.
