Hi everyone!! I know, right, HOLY SHIT an update from my Tumblr?? As you may or may not know, a lot of changes have been happening for me in the last few years. After college, I struggled to find a career while transitioning out of my hat-making business, Boshi-Basiik. I ended up falling into production and staying in that field for a few years.
Boshi-Basiik officially closed at the end of 2013 after 10 awesome years. I was also working full time in the accounting office at a great studio here in Los Angeles. I’ve also been struggling with some vision related issues and ended up quitting my full time job recently, as I could no longer commute safely and the nature of my work was only making my vision problems worse.
What I’m getting at is… I’m taking this all as a sign that THIS is the right opportunity to pursue my dream of supporting myself with creative endeavors. Now I’m in a position where I can finally get back into my hobbies and hopefully turn them into something more. It’s ABSOLUTELY terrifying to leave the security of a stable job, but I am also SO excited to see where I go on my own.
So, with that, I’ve transitioned my alias online from basiik to ohhisusiepie. I’ve opened a new Tumblr to share what I’m working on in my new-found days of freedom. If you’re interested to know what I’m up to, feel free to follow my new Tumblr account. If you made it this far into my post… THANKS for reading!!!
