If there is a :heart: next to that artist's name, it means I've commissioned them in the past and received FANTASTIC work in return. Each :heart: is a successful transaction. My goal is to add as many artists and stars to this list as I can, so other people know they can put their trust in these artists' work. :)

Tricia Bayfield

Tricia is happy and draws things sometimes. It is not unusual to find her composing music, writing or editing the lovely husband's books, roleplaying online and off, or livestreaming video games. It IS, however, unusual to see her speaking to buffalo, firefishing, or enjoying drinking songs with Fidel Castro. Please report to the local authorities if you see a Tricia partaking in this behavior.


.~* CONVENTION LIST *~.
Want to meet the Tricia and the lovely husband stkbayfield at a convention? Feel free to stop by! We'll have art tables at the following conventions....

JAFAX - June 21-22, 2014 (Allendale, MI) - TABLE SECURED
S. S. Kaizoku Con - August 17-18, 2014 (Muskegon, MI) - applied
Grand Rapids Comic Con - November 21-23, 2014 (Grand Rapids, MI) - applied
Con-Alt-Delete - December 19-21, 2014 (Lisle, IL) - not open yet
Kollision Con - January 2-4, 2015 (Rosemont, IL) - TABLE SECURED
Interests
It's the beginning of September, and that means crisp air, the beginning of frost on car windows in the morning, and BACK TO SCHOOL FOR EVERYONE.

And let me start out by saying thank you. After two months of college preparation hell, in the midst of unemployment and job transfers, I received so many responses for commission work to fill in the gaps, to keep me busy and motivated, and help keep a roof over our head and food on the table to prevent Craig from being overworked at HIS job. To give you an idea of what you all did, let me write out an objective list of what your commissions paid for:

:bulletblack: Two months of car insurance payments
:bulletblack: Two months of phone payments
:bulletblack: ALL of the books I needed for college
:bulletblack: Groceries and other miscellaneous food things
:bulletblack: Replenishing stock and supplies for conventions

And many more things that I can't recall off the top of my head. But I think you can see the point. In the face of adversity, YOU helped me make these things happen. I wake up every morning reminded of how blessed I am to have such wonderful people in my life, and I cannot be more grateful. :)



Which leads into the other half of this entry - college! After a year of talking about it, I'm finally starting Calvin College, transferring in as a junior to get my bachelor's degree in musical theater composition. A far cry from art, yes - but theater has always been my biggest passion, and music has always been my life.

Starting out at College of DuPage in 2007, I knew I wanted to pursue music as a career, but for some reason, education didn't grab me, and a performance degree intimidated the hell out of me. I couldn't explain what or why - I just KNEW that this was my calling, and I had to chase it as far as it would go. Fast forward to 2011, taking Music Theory IV and starting on the big project - a final composition between 4-6 minutes performed live in a recital in May. Any genre, any style, any instrumentation, only limited by our imagination (and up to seven players).

This is the result.

This piece, and the following year in a composition workshop studying the music from ensemble Eighth Blackbird, affirmed what I'd spent years trying to figure out.

And one more long story later, we're now out here in Grand Rapids living the dream and studying the art of composing for musical theater. I have two stories I want to write and score in my lifetime, and I'm sure there will be more in the future, but for now, we're taking things one day - and one class - at a time :)


I've got three more commissions to finish before my backlog is completely clear. So let me leave you with this last statement: I would not be where I am without you, and for that, I am eternally grateful. Thank you.
