Ever since starting a Facebook page this summer I've been posting really regularly there. It's great to be able to put up sketches of work in progress and get feedback instantly. Sadly my blog has been somewhat neglected. :(I'll try to fix that but in the meantime please check out my facebook page!
I have officially surpassed 800 images in my portfolio on Shutterstock! I'm not sure that number is really significent in any way, it's just a personal milestone I've looked forward to and worked hard to achieve. And honestly 800 is nothing compared to some folks on there. My head spins when I come across an amazing portfolio and I see there are 40 pages in their port! But I remember a time not so long ago when I only had 300 images and having 800 seemed like miles away.
Now that's enough pausing to celebrate- it's back to work on the next 200! I've got a loooong way to go until I have 40 pages...
2 new prints are up and a few more are almost ready. I've been creating these when I have a little extra time between projects so I do little bits when I can. Sometimes it can feel like slow motion to make progress this way but I've learned that even spending 10 minutes on something is movement forward. After a while you look back and realize just how much you've accomplished in those little chunks of time.
I have finally, after much planning and preparation, launched my Etsy print shop, Peace, Love, and Pretty Pictures! In one sentence I would describe the work as "psychedelic inspirational wall decor". So far I've only got one print up but hey, you've got to start somewhere, right? That's what I keep telling myself anyway. :)
Plenty more to come soon. I literally have hundreds of ideas for prints planned so now its just a matter of finding a way to either work faster or make time move slower so I can get more done each day. I'd love to get some other products happening too but right now I'm taking things one step at a time.
