It's been almost 3 years since my last Journal post...I've been bogged down with Working FT, taking college courses and working on numerous Sketch Card sets that I haven't really been able to utilize this account as much as I would like to. To all of you that are still out there watching, I appreciate you and I'm planning a comeback in a huge way.
With that being said...I'm looking back at all of the work on here and even though I have some great memories of these pieces and my progression over the years, It's time to let go of the past and start ushering the future of TonioArt illustrations. Time to create a brand, market myself and hit the drawing table with everything that I've got.
Here's what to expect within the next couple of weeks-
1. A vast majority of works will be moved to a folder far away and never seen again. (So dramatic)
2. I will be categorizing my sketch card and fan art by company to make everything a little less cluttered.
As of right now, my commission list is entirely empty and I will be taking very limited requests due to my busy schedule. I'll probably work in batches of 5 slots at a time. Inquire about cost if you are interested. I may be willing to accept trades for Original Art, Artbooks, Art Supplies, Action Figures, Dolls and Statues. (which is usually where all of my "art" income goes anyway...lol.

Tampa Bay Comic Con: I will be attending as a fan on Saturday August 2nd, 2014. It's literally only 20 minutes from my apartment so I'll be stalking around artist alley and chilling with my con buddies. If anyone would like to pre-order a commission and pick it up at TBCC on Saturday AUG 2, 2014. Let me know and we can discuss details.
MegaCon Orlando: I am confirmed for a full size table in artist alley for MegaCon in 2015...It will be my first show exhibiting in the past 3 years...It's been awhile, but I can't wait to start fresh and get back into the con circuit. Lots of friends and family made at these shows and it will be good to return with updated art for y'all to look at and hopefully purchase! LOL!
STAY TUNED for new things to come...TTFN!
