Hockey. Coaching. And back to art.

Fri Dec 12, 2014, 5:53 PM
I don't write nearly as many journals as I used to, which you as my watchers probably appreciate. This is partly because my life is so hectic I don't have time for frivolous things like journals, and partly because, well, I haven't had much I wanted to say. However, #ikue made this super sweet skin (that i then butchered the colors for) and I figured, hey, why not write a bit!

Hockey & Coaching

So my last real journal was about the massive changes in my life, what with the new job and moving towns and all. Not long after that journal, though, I took on another job: Head Coach for the WSU Women's Hockey team. Sounds super fancy, right? Well, it's not quite as impressive as it sounds since it's a Club team and most of the players are novice, but it has been a LOT of work. I put in 15-20 hours a week for them on top of my 40 hours of work and on top of my own hockey, so naturally I have virtually no time left over for myself or my art. But it has been an awesome experience and I am just blown away at how much these players have progressed, and how much they trust me. Cha. They trust me. What the f.

Other than coaching, I've been playing so much hockey it's amazing. Not only do I have my normal 50ish-game travel schedule, but I have local league hockey as well. I'm on the ice at least three times a week usually, and it has made the move to Pullman 100% worth it. My team is the Geezers and yes, they are Geezers. Me and the one other girl are the youngest by about 25 years. The best part is their tradition: Scotch after the game. It's amazing.

Year of Drawings

A few years ago I successfully completed the Year Of Design Challenge, where I created a design for every single day of the year. Yeah, I finished like half a month late, but that was pretty good considering my schedule at the time.
Well, this year I've decided I HAVE to get myself drawing again, so I'm starting a Year of Drawings. I will, over the course of the next year [or so] draw at least one thing a day. It may be a completed drawing, it may be a concept sketch, it may be a warm-up for working on another project, but I want to get my hand moving at least once a day*.
*Probably not including those days where I've got 4 or 5 hockey games and travel, but you know, other than that.

Thumb Dump




Question for y'all: Would you rather I post all of the drawings for my Year Of Drawings here on dA, or would you rather I post them all on Tumblr and only the best ones/a recap here?



P.S. Ikkaku, I can't figure out how you did the color blocks in the thumbs. Halps!

Yo. I'm Jessie, better known to my peers as Nutty. I'm a Graphic Designer for a local college where I produce everything from flyers, posters, brochures and marketing materials to original artwork for plays and productions.

However I work as a designer so that I can do what I was born to do: Play hockey. Nine months out of the year I'm traveling virtually every weekend to play for any and all teams that need a goalie. Some call me a whore, but I prefer the term "freelance goalie".

When it comes to my personal art I tend to dabble in everything I can get my hands on. Sculpture is my favorite though I don't currently have a studio to work in. I also enjoy digital painting and illustration, vector, and drawing. I do have a tendency to start monster projects but then get distracted by new monster projects.
Interests

Commission/Request Policy

I do accept commissions/requests... sometimes. Depending on my work and hockey travel schedule, I may accept small commissions and requests.

I do not have a set price for them, but I do ask that you donate either points or real money via PayPal according to how much you think I deserve. Think I did a great job? Donate what you can. Think I did so-so? Donate accordingly. Want to be a complete douche and insult my work? Leave a llama. I just won't be held responsible for broken or missing limbs. :paranoid:

Really, all I'm asking for is your respect. I have dozens of other projects and things like sleep I'm setting aside for your request. If you can respect that, then I can respect your personal financial status and/or opinions of my work.
