Love, Teacup Kisses blog Intro:
I’m not sure how to introduce the blog exactly. It is something I am so excited about and have been waiting to share with you for quite some time now. I’ve put a considerable amount of thought into the content for this blog and I am so excited for it to finally launch. But how to put it all into words! I guess I’ll start by telling you WHY I’m doing this, then I’ll tell you a bit about myself, and then I’ll finish by telling you what you can expect on the blog.
Part 01: The Why
I originally thought of this blog as a useful place for people who are interested in my art to go and stay updated. Blogs have so much potential, you can share content in such creative ways. But I realized that blogs are not all the rage these days, and only a few people still read them. So admittedly the blog is a project that is more for me than anyone else. But I hope that doesn’t deter you from staying.
Over the last few years I’ve been struggling with the best ways to share my art. I wanted a place that I had more control over, a place where people could still find my art even if Twitter or Youtube were no longer relevant. Like Myspace, AIM or Livejournal. (yeah, I’m old. lol)
I wanted to be able to control the way my videos or images looked on the website. A place that allows me to be more creative with my content or interact with you. So I decided that a blog would be the best place to do it.
Part 02: The About
So my name is Tatyana Vogt and I am a Sr. Production Artist that works at a mobile gaming company in the bay area. I’ve loved art all my life and I knew at a young age that I wanted to be an artist when I grew up. Despite that I didn’t take my art seriously until I went to college and even then my time was torn between part time jobs and social events. I drew enough to learn but not enough to really improve. Honestly, I still struggle with that to this day.
After I graduated college I spent some time freelancing and running an online shop. My art was all over the place, and mostly consisted of college assignments. At some point I decided to focus my style and build a brand. I wanted something fun, silly, sassy and cute that I could do to bring a little more happiness in the world. I focused on curvy, fashionable, pinup style drawings with strange whimsical elements like giant ice-cream cones or flying doughnuts. And thats how Love, Teacup Kisses was born.
Part 03: The What to Expect
Schedule: New post every Tuesday.
The blog will primarily feature Love, Teacup Kisses art and event updates. You can also expect to see some life related posts sprinkled in with posts featuring art from artists that I admire and stores I adore. I plan on sharing tips and tricks, doing reviews and all that good stuff.
