So, just an update on what I’ve been doing…
painting, searching, and sketching.
The past few weeks I worked on commissioned portraits.
They were simple, fun, and allowed me to pay my bills (which is always great).
I’ve also been searching for exhibition opportunities, grants, jobs, illustration gigs, etc. I have a couple of things coming up in the next month or so, including an Illustration Alumni exhibition at the University of the Arts in February.
I haven’t been creating as much art this past month or so as I would like. Well, I guess I should say, “I haven’t been creating as many final pieces of art as I would like.” I have been doing a lot of rough sketching.
I’m at the point where I have ideas in my head that seem impossible to get onto canvas. I’m also trying to focus on several things at once which doesn’t help the actual execution part.
But, I’ll get this stuff out somehow and, my next blog post will feature some new, lovely art.
Also, if I can find some batteries in this house, I’ll make a short video tonight of the painting I’m currently working on.
Happy Holidays, if you’re into that sorta thing!
