Another Year...

Another Year...

Languish (v.): 1. (of a person or other living thing) lose or lack vitality; grow weak or feeble. "plants may appear to be languishing simply because they are dormant" So, another year of self-employment.  I had some good clients this year, I must admit.  But, alas, it wasn't stellar for me.  I struggled to produce some good work for people this time around, and I think my skills are starting to get a bit rusty.  It's time to bite the proverbial bullet and learn some new tricks.  The ocean's getting a bit crowded with better artists than I am, and it's starting to get difficult to keep being noticed by the right people (read: people who are

A Difference

A Difference

One day, when I was very little, I discovered my mother's stash of delicious Hershey's Kisses.  For those of you who do not know what those are, they are tiny little chocolate candies that are about as close to heaven as any dirty-faced little barefoot boy like I was was going to get.  I told myself I would eat only one.  I devoured most of them.  I lived my entire rest of the month in mortal terror that someone would discover my thievery.  Somehow, I got away with it down 'til today.

Don't know if you're looking for another hobby project, but here's an invitation. I'm working with another artist who is creating an animated series called Galacticats.

It's cats versus dogs in this universe! This is our rough idea for the Dog Ship:

Sure! Llamas badges are funny little things, but fun. Believe me, I'm still learning too, but I think it's close to the best. :-) The main thing I get out of it is ideas. If your ever low on them, just come to DA and look at people's art.:D
