Happy Friday the 13th!

I'm in a kinda dark thoughtful mood today. Trying to figure out where I fit in the  art world. Where do you fit when you're not looking to go the art gallery thing, the graphic design, or the crafter world, I'm feeling stuck somewhere in between. My work is too serous for one place and not serious enough for the other. It has made me question what I am trying to do. All I ever wanted to do was tell stories and illustrate them. How do you do that and create a successful business? Let me just say I've been getting a lot of interesting business advice lately that I think I need to stop listening to because it is messing with my mind. Perhaps, I need to spend the afternoon writing in my journal, meditating and trying to figure things out. I need to get back to my own ideas of what I want to create and bring into the world. Does that make any sense?

Saying that, I am pretty excited about the new project I've started. I'm making a mini book of, "The Seven Ravens" by the Brothers Grimm. I've started the layout and am doing the sketches for the paintings...I'll post a bit of a work in progress when it a little more complete.

For now, enjoy this wonderful song by The Velvet Underground with Nico, "All Tomorrow's Parties". There is nothing like a good song to bring you back to your true artistic soul.

Now get out there and enjoy your weekend.
