It’s pretty amazing how much can change in a year-sure there’s the obvious things (glad this election is over!) but also in our own lives-think back to what your life was like a year ago, and compare it to now. For some people, it’s not a drastic change (maybe new clothes, a couple new friends, etc.) others it’s a complete 180… This past year, I fall into the latter camp! New relationship, new job, new city, lots of new friends-yeah that’s a pretty big change in your life! It can be mighty stressful at times too, but the rewards are well worth it if you choose correctly!
The one thing that hasn’t changed, though, is what I do for a living, and that’s creating art-a job that I never get tired of, something I can look forward to when I wake up in the morning and head into the studio-checking e-mails to see if a new project is coming in, or if a proof was approved, quoting a job… then getting to actually creating art! Those of you who understand the creative bug, the drive, desire and NEED to create-get this part of me (and people like me) totally.
I’m fortunate in that I’ve been able to support myself and my family with my art all these years, and I certainly plan on continuing this life of mine for as long as I can still breathe… While I have certainly have changed a lot in my life over the last year, in my soul I am an artist, and will always be that way-that will never change!!!
On another note, I went and updated the pages, and added some recent projects-go have a look and see what else I’ve been up to!
