Getting Projects Done and "My Normal Job For Squares"

Hey there folks who aren't reading this. Just a quick update on my life and projects and etc.

I've had one big project that I've been working tiredly to get done that's finally wrapping up this week! I'm very excited to be finally finished with it, and very excited to be paid a decent amount of cash for it. I'll throw the best pics of the bunch up on this site once I get permission to do so from the person who commissioned the art. It's been a real challenge for me though, pushing me to work on things that I'm not accustomed to drawing, and my work ethic has prevented me from bullshitting any of that, SO IT'S BEEN STRENUOUS TO SAY THE LEAST.

Steady Gig

So, every artists obviously dreams of their art being their bread and butter. It's a goal I worked towards for many years, and I was not successful for a combination of reasons having to do with life things getting in the way, financial troubles, depression, laziness on my part and a lack of skillful self-promotion.

I still have hopes that I can make that dream a reality someday, but in the meantime I've picked up a real person job (or as I call it, "my normal job for squares"). It's not the most exciting line of work but it's something that will hopefully keep me afloat, pay my bills, and give me a little bit of stability in my life while I continue striving to be a great and successful artist.

So, here's a cheers to me for landing a gig, even if it's not one I ever dreamed of doing. Here's to attempting to stave off some uncertainty and hardship in my life until I can make things work out in the art world.

Knowing my schedule way ahead of time makes my life a lot easier too, so I'm pretty thankful for that.

Anyways I continue hacking away at the rough patches on this site until I can get it closer to something that is worth linking people to. If you've found yourself here, well, thanks for checking the site out, and double thanks for taking an interest in whatever's going on in my life.
