    Art-straviganza!

    So, I've decided that if nobody wants to hire me, I will hire myself.

    I've been on this huge drawing binge and will be doing quite a bit of painting as well during spring break. I'm hoping to sell my artwork and maybe try my hand at freelance graphics. I met a girl at Caribou Coffee a couple days ago. She was really interested in my artwork and asked me if I'd be interested in designing a logo for her. I pretty much said, "That's what I'm in school for," LOL. She was excited upon hearing that and gave me her business card. She's willing to buy the rights to my artwork upon approval of the logo. *fist pump* YES!

    So, I'm starting an Etsy shop, I'm trying to see if anyone will buy prints from DA as well. I'm also trying to find out if I can possibly put some art in a gallery for sale. I wish I had a large scanner. I have stuff that demands to be put online with something better than a camera. >_<

    I picked up a bunch of art trading cards in hopes of making and selling ACEOs as well. I know of someone on Tumblr who sells them for between eight and forty bucks. I'm pretty certain those will sell pretty quick. (My optimism leads me to depressing situations sometimes. I hope this isn't one of them.)

    Anyway, my fingers are crossed and my goals are set. Wish me luck!

    Good luck man, hope that everything turns out ok for ya. I'm getting back into the whole swing of things with my art and such, but I need to see a doc about some of my health issues first. They're really being a pain and I wanna get 'em under control. I will get busy soon, I hope, and I wish the best of luck to all of my fellow artists out there.

    I'm tryin' to get better, I recently jus' lost my mom. She had COPD and it created alot of health problems for her and it finally caught up with her. She'll be sorely missed. I've had to do alot of reevaluating in my life, now more than ever. I want to get back into my drawing, but my biggest obstacle now is a medical condition called Cronic Fatigue Syndrome. I'm gonna get a second opinion though and make sure that is what is causing my problems with being tired and unable to concentrate. According to my doctor, it's related to the Chemo that I underwent when I was battling cancer. If the second opinion confirms what he says, I'm gonna check and make sure that what my doc said is true and that there is nothing they can do about it. I find that a little hard to believe, but either way it's not gonna stop me, I'll find a way. Anywho, I hope that you are able to succeed in your endeavor. I always wish the best of luck to all those who chase their dreams, not least of all my friends.

    Re: Art-straviganza!

    OMG. I'm so sorry to hear about your mother. I know how it feels to lose someone close to you. My brother's mom died a few years back and my granny passed almost 2 years ago. You have my condolences. If you ever need someone to talk to, I'm here man.

    A friend of mine went through chemo and he's been pretty fatigued as a result of which. Although, he goes through dialysis as well, so that could be a good reason as to why he's always so tired. Whatever it is that's ailing you, I hope you get well soon. Keep on pushing. I look forward to seeing some of your recent work. ^_^

    Do you have a DeviantArt account?

    No I do not, but I'll check on creating one soon; been a little busy with my niece and nephew, haven' seen them in 3 years. The good news, for your friend, is that Docs have all kinds of meds that they can use now to help with the side effects of Chemo. Meds that they didn' have when I went through it, they'll help rebuild his white and red blood cells and battle the fatigue. Have him check on that if he hasn' already, it'll help with any future problems like the ones that I'm having.
