Hey-o friends! I am still alive! In fact, I'm 6 weeks into a 9-week medical trial, and I can comfortably say I'm feeling significantly better than I have in the last few years! Yay!
.
I'd also like to take this time to give you an update on what's up!
.
I've decided, after two+ years of struggling, to shift my focus away from my online shop and the social media marketing of it. I'm finally being kind enough to myself to acknowledge that my health problems do not allow me to hustle like I used to-- and as a result, I won't continue to try to force something that just isn't working anymore.
.
That doesn't mean I'm going to stop making art by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, I'm exploring a lot more than I have in a long time, now that I've freed myself from the obligation to constantly make pristine salable products. I’m enjoying focusing on process over product!
.
I am shifting my focus to collaboration with local artists and participation in local shows/events. More details on this coming soon!
.
I am (re)learning to work at a pace that suits me and my personal needs. Without the burden of creating amazing ground-breaking content daily to stay relevant on the internet, I am able to dive deeper into work that requires more patience and attention.
.
This does put me in an awkward place with respect to social media. I know this is how you keep connected to me/my work, and I know my posts will reach fewer of you as I move away from pandering to the unreasonable demands of the social media algorithms (especially with respect to ~daily posting). I invite you to follow me on Patreon (patreon.com/korlista), where I post weekly updates. Some posts are available publicly, almost all posts are available with a $1 pledge, and all posts (including in-depth tutorials and behind-the-scenes content) are available with a $3 pledge. Acknowledging that financial support is not feasible for everyone, I will work to come up with a monthly newsletter that I’ll send out via email and social media soon.
.
Thanks as always for supporting my work. I hope you’ll continue to follow along on this new and exciting leg of my artistic journey.

Hey-o, friends. I’m cleaning up my studio and trying to move some old work out! If you’re interested in taking a look and snagging some things on the cheap, I’ve made an album on my Facebook page (facebook.com/art.by.savannah) of the goods! I’ll leave it up til next weekend, then I’ll sort things into Mystery Bags. Thanks for helping me find new homes for this stuff! 💜

I’m nursing a migraine today and wishing to be back in the studio! Here’s a horsey skull for Magic Brew I made last week. Mega-thanks to patrons for helping me to make art while I’m on medical leave! If you’re interested in becoming a patron and supporting my art for as little as $1 (and getting exclusive goodies too!), you can find all the details at patreon.com/korlista. Can’t support my work with $? No worries! You can also click “follow” on my Patreon page to see all my public posts for free!

Sent off a print of an oldie-but-goodie (Life Cycles aka Spacecada - 2015) today! Coincidentally, a few days ago I was playing with embroidery on paper again-- which I talked about more on Patreon (patreon.com/korlista) this morning. Maybe more thread on paper soon?

Magic Brew pieces 5/52! Oh, hey, p.s., I am leaving town this weekend for medical treatment, so I’m closing my shop (corlista.etsy.com) tomorrow. If you wanna snag something before then, it’ll be on its way to you before the weekend! Also, wish me luck; I am panicking! :)

Ahh, I'm not really happy with this little potato beetle piece-- but in an act of mercy, I'm calling it done! I've also written up a brand new post for $1+ patrons if you're interested in learning more about the (painful) process of this buggo's creation and supporting my art-making: patreon.com/korlista
.
Here's hoping the next piece comes a little more easily!

Inspiration has been a little elusive lately, but I’ve been digging through my library of old sketchbooks for goodies. I stumbled on a potato beetle scribble from 2014 and decided to plop him onto my next Magic Brew piece. Still debating on medium, but leaning toward ink and watercolor!
