Starting year 2 as an illustrator.

So I made it through my first year as a full time professional! Looking back there was a lot of sleepless nights and not a lot of money to be had but I did make major progress with my art and understanding about the business.

With the start of 2015, I am retooling my goals, web presence and outlook on how to craft a business and navigate my new career path. As I search out new clients and strengthen relationships with existing ones, I have become aware that I can be my own client too. That was probably my biggest realization of 2014. This year I am starting to do more work for my self. I have exciting projects announcments that will be dropping soon. Sign up for my mailing list on the about page if you want to stay informed. Also on the schedule are a series of personal works that will be appearing at shows this spring, summer and fall. These works are aimed at getting back to the imagery I loved when I was creating just for myself and will hopefully push my client work towards what I naturally wish to paint.

As part of my web re-vamp, I am starting fresh with the blog. These will be infrequent post about process and business practices and is aimed at fellow artist and fans. Instagram and Facebook will have a more continuos feed of visual material if that is what you are after. As aways, Im happy to discuss further if you feel like hitting me up on email or the social media of your choice. Thanks for visiting my new home on the web. And with that, lets continue on with the Art Adventures!
