So...first time writing a Journal entry. It's been an interesting Journey these past few years. After years of creative/artist block...I'm back...sort of. This has been fun, to get back into what I feel I do best. Writing...not so much. I felt, I talk to myself, and seem interesting enough, why not put it on paper, or computer. Such a stress relief. To immerse myself into my own world. Block out the real world for a while, while seeing what is in my mind, or what I see in a photo manifest itself onto a blank piece of paper...or computer screen. Being away. I see, technology has improved. Scanning through all the Deviants pages, what I learned, has transformed into the digital age. Of which, I have some catching up to do. But, all in all...I am glad to be back, and ART I have missed you so...but, with that and working to garner extra income, I've come to another challenge. Pricing my work. Pricing, is what I do fulltime at my job. Customer service as well. So, for the most part that is easy. But, I am not internally vested in what I price. My art, I am. Does my clients see my art as I do? So they think it's better, worse, the same? Is what I price fair? Or, are they thinking to themselves, "Man, what a steal!" Or, "I am paying how much for this???"

Of which...begs the question. How do you price your work? How do you know if what you offer is fair? Or, are you undervaluing, or over selling? Art, being subjective you may never know. But, confidence is what you need to be successful. I wonder, is your confidence, being priced accordingly? I'd be interested in hearing anyone's thoughts. I am working towards taking this into a more professional direction.

Thank you for reading...my ramblings. I promise, "if" I write another I'll try and focus more on art or techniques then what I say when talking to myself. I am sure...most won't want to hear or read it. : )

Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United States
After many years of Creative blocks and life taking over I've decided to get back into art. I started out in the same company 15 years ago as an in-house Graphic artist/prepress, working my way up to Supervisor. Now, looking to get into Freelance illustration. Studied at Joe Kubert School of Cartoon & Graphic Art. I'm hoping the saying is right, " it's never too late to follow your dreams"
