Still around... too busy lately to work on personal artwork, and I really miss it. Not sure my day job is worthwhile in the long run if it leaves me too burnt out to do anything but sleep on my days off. Also, my sketchbook of 15 years was stolen two...



I almost managed to quit! But then my boss almost doubled my wages. Not really something any sane person should refuse in these times. Currently the work has slowed to a crawl and we have 4 day workweeks. Not so bad, except I still have not gotten right down to getting some artwork done. Still working on it....

Well, this again.

Well, this again.

I realised the other night that I've hardly had any time to even -consider- working on art since I got this job. This happened to me before, when I was at a similarly unkind workplace. I ended up leaving on the half-excuse that I needed time to work on my portfolio and personal art. The part time job I had after that was perfect, even if it was only netting me just enough to scrape by on. I feel like I could do much more right now if I had a part-time job instead... go back to figure drawing classes, for example, because my skills are really starting to show their disuse. I should be able to make enough with 5 years of experience in my field
