I’ve been feeling off lately.. just generally dissatisfied and stuck in this weird slump. But tonight as I was laying in bed trying to fall asleep I finally had one of those lightbulb moments - something clicked and I think I’ve figured out the last component of my storyboard for a side project / collaboration I’m working on.. I had to get up and scribble down my ideas and now I’m totally awake feeling inspired and motivated.
This project is an exciting one and really personal to me. My good friend has asked me to make a video to go along with a song she’s written and recorded. The song’s already done - and it is amazing - so I definitely feel some pressure to make sure that the visuals are on par with the soundtrack. Also, the song is actually about our friendship over the years (I finally got a song written about me!) so I kind of have a personal stake in this. :)
I want to go out a lot more as soon as it starts getting warmer. This spring I’ll hopefully be out on Newbury St. in Boston selling prints every weekend that we have good weather. :) Last semester I was only able to make it out there for a couple weekends in October before it got too cold / my workload got out of control.
I've just realized it's been a month since you last posted. Where've you been?
Yeah I was kind of forced to take a break from drawing since I’ve been buried under a mountain of schoolwork for the past three weeks. (It was brutal.) BUT! I had my final critique for graphic design on Tuesday and now I’m all done for the semester! Finally had time to draw again yesterday.. so expect much more on this page over the next few weeks. :)
Awesome weekend selling prints out on Newbury St. It’s great getting to talk to so many different people and occasionally meet someone who is really excited about my art. I only went out for a few hours on both Saturday and Sunday but by the end I ran out of business cards and plastic sleeves, and also sold out of a lot of prints. :) Time to make more. Weather channel says good weather again next weekend..
This afternoon I went out on Newbury to sell some art on the street but was thwarted by the crazy wind in Boston today. But! I did get some good responses from people walking by while I was attempting to set up. Next weekend the weather’s supposed to be nice so hopefully I can make it happen. :)
PS. Thanks for all the reblogs on my last post! I think at least one of the Etsy sales I made this weekend must have come out of that.
