Woo! Another thousand views in under two months' time! I've also seen a seemingly permanent rise to my daily views. This is exciting stuff, for me anyway.
Hopefully this is a sign that the quality of my work is improving, that my skills are sharpening... but it is definitely also due to my faster production! I'm very pleased with this, but I'd like to perhaps slow down to work more intensively, focusing heavily on improvement, and taking my time to REALLY create some portfolio worthy show-pieces! I have a semi-steady stream of commissions coming in as well, so I've adjusted my prices to better reflect the demand + my work. It's certainly not enough to justify even thinking of leaving my day job (which is fine because I rather enjoy my day job!) but it is a step in the right direction towards one day being a freelance illustration, living by creating art. Soon I'd like to start selling my traditional pieces (pencil/ink drawings and paintings).
I updated my website a bit, if anyone is interested in checking it out! It's colorful and makes me happy to see. It much better reflects who I am as an artist. Link to Website Here
Otherwise, I don't have much to report! I'm currently in discussion about 3 larger-scale commissions... I have line-art in the works for 2 new pieces (tentative). I'm practicing perspective so I can create more dynamic, interesting pieces with greater variety. And I am working on inking/coloring/and lettering my comic (a collaboration: drawn and written by two friends of mine). The first full issue of the comic should release at the end of March! If you'd like to buy a print, commission a piece, buy some original artwork... email me, check out my web-store (link below), or see me at any of the conventions I'm tabling at this year!
