Product Review: Derwent Academy Art Supplies

Product Review: Derwent Academy Art Supplies

Derwent graciously sent over an assortment of the Derwent Academy products, a line designed for aspiring artists, hobbyists, and students to help develop their artistic skill. Of the care package that I received, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the three products that I was most excited to try: the sketching pencils, colour pencils, and watercolour pencils.

Why I’m Forcing Myself to Paint Every Day for a Year

It’s obvious to say that I follow a LOT of artists on Instagram. One of the most common trends some of my favorite artists have pursued is the 365 Art Challenge, where you create something every day for one full year.

My All-Time Favorite Watercolor Supplies

My All-Time Favorite Watercolor Supplies

I have a problem. Whenever I see a fellow artist showing off their art supplies, I have to buy it and try it out for myself. Though fun, this has become quite an expensive habit. There have been some supplies that I’ve loved along the way, and some I could’ve definitely lived without.

New Year, New Resolutions

New Year, New Resolutions

I know I haven’t blogged since the middle of July of LAST year (and I fully intend on finishing my Artist Alley series, if you’ve been waiting this entire time).

But, now that I have a fresh year ahead of me, I’ve resolved to be better about blogging, along with a handful of other things.

Before I get into my goals for Kimposed in 2018, I wanted to reflect on what made 2017 incredible.

Artist Alley Tips for Your First Con: Part 1 - Before the Show

If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably already know that I attended my first-ever con as an artist alley exhibitor at Long Beach Comic Expo this last February.

What a huge learning experience! While I had so much fun just attending, the most memorable and valuable part was having the opportunity to connect with fellow artists, and gaining insight and feedback on how to improve my experience next time! Seriously, so much love for these awesome artists.
