Well, it's finished! I can finally share it with everyone But first I'll just fill y'all in with what's been up recently.
I'm not one for feeling sorry for myself and I'm certainly not an attention seeker, but I haven't had a brilliant year. Unfortunately, my little sister unexpectedly passed away in September. I then fell out with my family, suffered from health problems and lost my job. I am thankful for the things I do have, such as a roof over my head and my loving boyfriend, but I definitely needed a way to entertain myself and push through the hard times.
So I'm super stoked to introduce my little pet project: Never Bird Designs. An Etsy shop dedicated to creating art, jewellery and crafts inspired by fairytales, myths and folklore!
Admittedly the idea for Never Bird was blooming in my mind long before my sister died and things went a bit crazy. After acknowledging the fact that I'm never going to exploit my artistic side in the Money-Making-World of Everyday-Life, I decided to undertake something that would fulfill the artistic itch I'm sure we all suffer from every now and again! Never Bird is kind of my baby and I enjoy and have enjoyed every second that has gone into making it a reality. It's an awesome learning experience, and I couldn't think of a better way to fill my spare time!
Everything is handmade and affordable. The latter was important to me because I'm always broke (haha) so I hope that the prices are accessible for everyone. Most importantly, I hope to expand into plush making, tshirt and bag designing and more. Plus lots more original artwork. It's very early days at the moment! Suggestions are always welcome
I would very much appreciate it if you guys took the time to check it out, and even spread the word if you like what you see!! www.etsy.com/shop/neverbirddes…

I'll be posting artwork that was for Never Bird on my dA account in the next week and don't worry, I'll still be doing fanart in my spare time too!
