It has been a very busy week thus far. I have, as yet, only made it to Wednesday thus far. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come. That would be amazing. I finished working on a coloring book project and constructed a model for a second project for one client this week. It is such a relief to look back at those two projects a little rather than telling myself I need to finish it over and over again. During last weekend I realized that I needed to start spending some more time on work for my Fine Arts practice. I love making illustrations, and there is definitely some stability in making them that I have not yet found in making paintings and installations, but if I do not make those paintings and installations then I lose some of the vigor that I have for making artwork. With that in mind I determined to really dig in a little bit to my Square Foot pieces. I do not think that I will even make the deadline for submitting to this show, but I very much enjoy the catalyst to making these works. I think they will function well in some other mix too.
It is an interesting thought. While illustrating lately I have been thinking, "if you mess up, do it confidently." Perhaps it was that which I was missing while producing that thesis work. I don't know, but I do know that I am pleased that I have begun to understand some areas to improve on that work, and I am pleased that people have been pursuing some of the work. Life is shaping up again.
I'm glad you're here for the ride.
