As some of you have heard from my social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter), I’m not planning to sell my artwork at conventions anymore.

I’ve been thinking about this for a while, and I feel that it’s best for me to focus my energy creating and selling art online for the time being. I realize that in the long run, I’d much rather be home with my family and friends over the weekends, especially for special occasions, than to travel away from home to cons.

Don’t get me wrong, I love meeting you all in person SOOOOOOOOOO MUCHHHHH! I wouldn’t be where I am now without your wonderful and undying support! Thank youuuuuu! <3

But my body can only handle so much traveling in a year, and when I settle down, I want to know that I have income rolling in without the need to travel from my own home.

I do plan to return to cons after some time away from it. Not sure when yet but I’ll be sure to make an announcement. ^_^ In the meantime, I’ll be popping up online more often now, which I think is a plus, right?? =D

I realize that some of you, my dear fans and followers, were heartbroken by the news. I truly had no idea that I had a huge impact in your life. One person have even said they traveled 6 hours to just meet me at Anime Expo 2017 because they wouldn’t be able to meet me at SacAnime

After this year, I don’t have plans on attending SacAnime again anytime soon. Or any cons in the near future for that matter, except for Kumoricon in October, which will be my last. I know, I’ll miss you all!

Also, I know many of you knew me as “Snowgem.” I have decided not to leave Snowgem in the past and turning towards using my name Tuyet Tran and this website for my original art and @TrulyTuyet as my personal social media account.

This is simply a reflection of who I wish to be from now but also an acceptance of who I used to be: Truly me, Truly Tuyet.

And part of this transformation is to create artwork that truly speaks to me and relates and communicates their true nature and acceptance of who they are.

So there is likely to be fewer fanart and more real and authentic artwork from me each with their own stories to tell.

And I very much look forward to sharing them with you!

As one of my Instagram followers aptly commented on my change in handle, “You’re adulting.” LOL

Yes. Yes, I am. XD

And I look forward to adulting with you. <3
