I’m live-streaming on Twitch every Wednesday!

I can’t believe my new live-streaming set-up is ready. I’ve been t this for about a year and now I finally feel like I have everything the way I like it!

I finally settled on live-streaming video games only, rather than art or variety streaming. Live-streaming art has been work, but playing video games with and chatting is a much-needed break me.

The older we get, the less time we have for the things we used to love. My love of video games has never gone away, so I am forcing myself to take a break from whatever I’m working on every week, at least every Wednesday morning, to play my favourite relaxing video games and to answer questions live on Twitch.

Engaging with me on Twitch and Instagram are the best ways to support me right now, aside from supporting my shop directly. Follow me on social media to know when I go live!

I’m very excited to be live-streaming on Twitch with a whole new image! I like to play Animal Crossing, farming simulators and Indie games on Nintendo Switch. I look forward to seeing you weekly in my chat on Wednesday at 11 AM EST!

Until next Sunday,

Welcome back to The Artist Journal!

As you may remember, The AJ turned 1 year old back in August! We reached our biggest content goals and surpassed many milestones along the way. And after a very long sprint, I needed a few weeks to relax my writing muscles.

A lot has changed in a year. The world seems to be an entirely different place now, even compared to just a few weeks ago. People’s plans have had to change. Many physical and online business have either taken a hit or had to close up shop altogether. I luckily still have my side-hustles going for me, but I’ve been needing major change for a long time.

I’ve felt my creativity being choked out of me over the past year and in an attempt to be seen as more professional, I’ve isolated myself from my audience and from you. I’ve taken the past few weeks to refocus and envision where The Artist Journal is heading within this new social and economical landscape.

I will be posting every week from now on. Whether it’s a full blog article, a casual note or some recommended media, you’ll be hearing from me far more often.

Because I wear many hats and am always working on many different projects, I have a huge backlog of content to share in addition to updates on my current projects. As a mixed media artist and multi-platform content creator I want to start sharing all of my work in one place.

Welcome to the new Artist’s Journal!

Until next time
