My Serendipitous Niche

Ask away!   Hi! My name is Kelsey. When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a mermaid. Now I want to be an artist— to draw and to write pretty things that make people feel pretty feelings.

Congratulations to Ivy Taylor, who was elected this week and made history as the first ever African American mayor of San Antonio, Texas! On Tuesday Taylor announced her plans to improve the city, and said, “I’ve always been committed to working with everyone in our community, even though we may not always agree on every issue.” 

And of course she’s a Delta :)

I have been interviewing women who work in Fantasy Illustration about their lives, art and careers. It’s a goldmine of knowledge and advice both for working artists and also for aspiring illustrators and artists.

There are currently 17 different interviews, so get reading and enjoy!

You can find all of the interviews here: http://kirileonard.com/tag/women-in-fantasy-illustration/

More good stuff to read from Kiri Leonard, and of course the interviewees.

Aw yeah Carmen!!!

"Does it break my heart, of course, every moment of every day, into more pieces than my heart was made of, I never thought of myself as quiet, much less silent, I never thought about things at all, everything changed, the distance that wedged itself between me and my happiness wasn’t the world, it wasn’t the bombs and burning buildings, it was me, my thinking, the cancer of never letting go, is ignorance bliss, I don’t know, but it’s so painful to think, and tell me, what did thinking ever do for me, to what great place did thinking ever bring me? I think and think and think, I’ve thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it."

The cognitive dissonance caused by a society that tells its children to “follow their dreams” through messages in films, literature, etc. and then punishes them for not choosing safe, money making careers in adulthood is fascinating, to say the least.
