Finishing up 2011...

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to drop a little update of what I've been up to. I am evaluating what I did and didn't accomplish in 2011, and figuring out how to make some improvements in the future.  This year I accomplished many things but most importantly 2011 taught me I have a lot to more to learn.

Right now, I am working on a bunch of new pieces to be posted ASAP and I'm trying to figure out what the grand plans of 2012 will be. I am pretty excited about next year and will be working on getting my work in magazine and books. I'll be focusing more on editorial illustration and storytelling...but more on that later.

So, until my grand New Years resolution is a lovely new video by Featherbeard & Lavender Lee.  Isn't it fun? I love all the creativity(and happy darkness) that went into making it. It is kind of inspiring to me for the new year.

What are you doing to finish off your year? Are you excited as I am about having a clean slate? Here's to whatever is next!

2010...It is gonna be a good year!

I'm getting ready to start my New Year now that I have a couple days off work and I can start planning my strategies for my upcoming crazy illustration year. I think it is going to be a crazy exciting year filled with new jobs, new friends and more pressure put on myself to get things done. 2010 will be a fabulous year! I'm excited to start.

My resolutions? Well... there are so the top 3 are:

1. Get a new day job. Something that would be more creative than my current job at the museum and something that could give me more time to work on my illustration.

2. Get bluehour studio to fly. I would love to be doing this on a full time basis and getting more pieces published.

3. Get more organized and ready for whatever comes next. The business class I took last fall was great and would like to find some other classes to keep me motivated. Anyone have any suggestions?

oh, yeah...and I want to lose 10 pounds and learn to meditate.  Is this all too much?

So...Bye the old...hello to the new year. Wish me luck!
