Wooo! It's finally Christmas break... well it has been for the past week but this is the first time I'm at home with not much to do.
Anyways, I mentioned previously that I was thinking of changing my username, and so I was going to create a new account... I feel like with the new year just around the corner, it is finally time for that!
Changing my username might not seem like a significant thing, but at the moment it seems like the right thing to do. My Happy Pink Emo persona is a little old, a thing of the past, and was created mostly to suit the odd environment I was in. It was sort of a way to try to get people do a mix of understand me and shut the fuck up about me. Now I don't really want to be attached to this persona; it's too hard to explain (I hate explaining what an "emo" is to adults -_-), and doesn't particularly fit me anymore. It was made at a time when I was just starting to discover myself as an artist.
I'm growing progressively as an artist, and I've decided I want a name that is really me. I've thought of various personas I could use (one of them was the Rainbowmancer), but I decided that something derived from my actual name would be much more me as I don't really know how to "describe" myself. It also sticks a lot easier, and I'd rather protect myself and not use my last name... not that anyone can spell or pronounce it anyways xD
Stazz is sort of a stage name I guess. I plan to use it for my musical ventures too, as well as any other art I may decide to participate in. I've decided that the time has come to bind all of my work together under a single name and to form a single solid identity that I can hopefully rely on and refer to for the time to come.
Anyways, you're probably tired of my ramblings, so I'll wrap it up. I'm hoping to have this done in a few days, or before the break ends at the least. I have actually been working on various art pieces but have neglected DA in the flurry of work and business from school and whatnot. Overhauling won't just be changing my name for me. I need to sort out all my art (that shit's a mess!), re-watermark it, and figure out what I'm going to keep to show and what I'm going to trash. A good portion of the old and less significant art in my gallery will probably be moved to scrapbook, and I should have a plethora of new art to come!
Hopefully my lazy ass will not get the better of me and I will actually pull through and do this!
the soon to be Stazz.
