United States
Certified Business
After returning from Las Vegas yesterday I was rewarded with finding my business certificate in the mail. I am now a certified LLC! "Kamakru Art, LLC" that is :D It's been one of my goals this year and I sat down, figured it out and now it's real. I still almost can't believe it! I still have some more things to do but the ball is rolling now and I couldn't be more excited in my business ventures.

Puerto Rico
My travel is never ending it seems! It's been incredibly crazy, to think I've done more this year alone than I have for probably the past 3 years combined lol. And it's only July! I've always wanted to get out and see more of the world and with another birthday behind me recently it's about damn time haha. I feel like more people get out and do more in their early 20's, but here's me on the edge of 30 now *just* starting to get to it. Better late than never though, and I am so exited for the experiences!

Conventions
One reason I had to get certified as a business is because I'm doing a LOT more conventions. I plan to have at the very least 15 conventions lined up for next year. I said I was going solo in my art and I really do mean it! I've also tried to find partners to help with costs of doing a convention, but lo I don't think there are many people up for conventions as seriously as I am who I believe to be reliable partners as well. I'm just done testing the waters, I'm done 'giving it a try'. I'm like the fledgling jumping from the nest: I will now fly or fall! I've tested my wings quite long enough at this point x]

Commissions and future offerings
Commissions will be offered whenever I have time, as usual, however commercial commissions will almost always take priority over private commissions. With doing more conventions I plan to make more contacts in the industry and thus start working on larger and larger projects. I will be building my own IP as well as constructing Kickstarter campaigns and possibly a Patreon where I will start to offer tutorials, do giveaways and offer one-on-one's at the higher tiers. My Patreon will not be a place that I will start hiding art, but rather it will be where Patrons will get the most of my time. I do not plan to make it my mission to keep everything from you guys, but it will be the platform I can use to create things I may not otherwise do (like tutorials), and a way for Patrons to get something other than just art from me: Advise on a project, like red-lining, one-on-ones about art in general - stuff like that.

YouTube
Once I return from Puerto Rico my YouTube channel will start to ramp up as well, including behind the scenes look at running an AA booth at a convention, art insights, art videos, and art talks.

Other?
What did I miss? I feel that's a pretty lengthy journal as is haha. Well I'll be around until Thursday then I'll be AFK for a little over a week!
