My first and most certainly not last Steven Universe painting! I could write an absolute essay about how much I adore this cartoon and how much Pearl means to me but instead I’ll just tell you guys how much I love being part of a fandom again (it’s been ages!) I’ve been struggling a lot lately with my art and it has been a really difficult year, creatively. I sell at several conventions every year and try to release new prints and work each time I go, but I’ve just not been able to produce anything of any worth (in my opinion) lately and it’s hit me like a punch to the gut.
Steven Universe came at exactly the right time, with exactly the right message, and from exactly the right fandom, and I’m absolutely buzzing with creativity, inspiration and, frankly, sheer joy. For the first time in over a year, I am excited about selling at a convention again. For the first time in over a year, I'm creating passionate art again.
I love it.
