"oh my god! im so happy for you, you have my dream job! your art is amazing and congratulations!"
oh my gosh, thankyou so much you’re too lovely!! ;____;
"Quick question about your new job. Do you have to be experianced to become a florist? Is it mildly-easy or extremely hard and stressful?"
Hey anon! I think it really depends on the store and who’s hiring but I think like any other job any sort of experience definitely makes you a better candidate. I was extremely lucky in the sense that this is my first job, and I was only able to get it through a family friend. I don’t have any previous retail/floristry experience but luckily one of the people that work there already was happy to take me under her wing and teach me :-)
Personally I think it’s probably about as stressful as any other retail job? There’s a lot of internet/phone orders, which makes me a bit anxious so it’s a bit more stressful for me in that sense, but apart from that it’s probably not much different! I’d say it’s about moderately stressful, and there’s a surprising amount of manual labour but i find it really rewarding and worth it in the end :)
bunch of unfinished stuff
"haven't seen your ocs lately, please do more of them, i miss them dearly"
ahh i miss them too, sorry for not being able to draw them over the last couple of months - I’ve been super busy but hopefully you’ll get to see them again soon :,)
(also thanks so much for enjoying them, it means a lot to me!)
"Hi there! I know you must be super busy and stuff but would you ever consider drawing a self-potrait of yourself? You're my favorite artist and I've always been super curious. Going anon because I have to admit that I thought Isaac was your self portrait until I found out he was your OC! ;u;"
AW GOSH, thankyou so much anon.. haha unfortunately i look nothing like isaac, ITS SO INTERESTING that that’s how you perceived me though?!
Here’s a really quick self portrait though, i’m so sorry..

"hi! do you make prints to sell? I was wondering what size would be best to go about making prints."
As of yet I don’t make prints so I can only offer limited advice, I’m sorry! I also haven’t yet attended any cons so I haven’t drawn anything with the specific end goal of having it as print-worthy as possible, but these are probably things to keep in mind:
- It’s a lot easier to scale something down than it is to scale something up - so start at the biggest size that you want your poster (I’d maybe stick to around A3 for a standard poster.)
- I’ve been poking around sites like INPRNT and they have a minimum size requirement of 3600 pixels x 3600 pixels at 300dpi (none of my pieces were big enough, haha). However, keep in mind that they are a professional print company, and therefore their print quality is probably incredibly high. Other sites such as society6 don’t have a size requirement, but will sell your product at different sizes depending on the quality of the file that you upload. It’s reasonable to assume that their print quality is slightly lower.
- Printers print at a minimum of 300dpi. I think some printers have options to print at 400dpi, 600dpi, etc. but the higher the dpi, the better the quality of the print.
- I think programs like photoshop have preset sizes (when you make a new canvas its under size>international paper and you can choose between A2, A3, A4, etc.
- From what I’ve heard at cons people tend to sell A3, A4 and A5 sized prints? However I know there are other people that sell long bannered artworks (such as frei) that do incredibly well. It all depends on what you’re looking to make the prints for!
- Last but not least, check around with printing stores to see what sizes they offer, and see if they suit what you’re looking for! (also if possible make sure you’re able to order a proof copy, so you can check that the quality of the print is what you want before ordering.)
This is pretty general advice, I’m sorry anon ;A; Maybe ask around for someone who’s more experienced to offer more specific advice? Best of luck with all your art and prints though!!
"Sorry if you've answered this before but how large is your canvas for digital art usually?"
Hey, that’s alright anon! My canvas is usually around 25cm x 30cm after cropping, and I usually start off with 40 cm x 50 cm at 300-400dpi.
I hope that answers your question! :-)

"Do you have any suggestions for drawing stuff from your brain? I'm pretty good at drawing from life/ ref but when it comes to improvisation/ using my imagination i'm awful : ("
(Edit: i just realised i barely answered the question, sorry anon!! i added a bit more stuff at the end.)
Hi anon!! Hmm well this is personally what I’ve found from my own experiences, but remember that everyone works differently so if this doesn’t resonate with you feel free to ignore it!
