Just some quick things. I've been really busy just trying to make ends meet. I am doing some design work for the country club where I work, and I've got a lot of other things keeping me busy, but I don't want to say much until I actually have something to show. They include a painting going to be hung in a restaurant and a comic I'm collaborating on with a friend.
I've been rereading Art and Fear, it's always a very comforting and supporting read about art careers. I'm also reading Art Theory: An Historical Introduction, I decided I need more art theory in my life, so far it's a little boring, like reading a text book...

So here is what I have for the front of my business card. I think whenever I upload images to blogspot, the colors lose some saturation. Anyway, I like the way it looks, I do want to get rounded edges when I actually get them printed. BUT, should I have anything on the back of it? I feel like I should, but then again, I want to keep it simple. If I have anything on the back, it could just be my logo again...but now that's just repetitive. Maybe I should have the rest of the cookie on the back? If so, I would need to make the cookie a little bigger to have a bit more on the back...I really don't know. I need some suggestions.
I've hit a bit of a slump. I've been working all the time and not making enough to make ends meet, so I'm pretty sure that's why. I'm going to rework some of my older stuff. I really want to redo the front and back cover of Three Cups of Tea. That, and I have some old sketches that I want to push more and see where they go.
If I started a series, maybe that would get my gears moving. I noticed that whenever I walk out at night, I like to look inside windows. No, I don't go and peer inside, but when I'm just walking down the street and I see a really pretty interior that's glowing from the outside, I think that's really lovely. Not even at night either, I like seeing glass jars on window sills from the outside, how curtains are draped, it doesn't really matter what it is as much as it is being viewed from the outside. Anyway, just a thought.
