Book Burnings: Yes they Still Exist and These People Dictate What You Read

Book Burnings: Yes they Still Exist and These People Dictate What You Read

Do you avoid letting your kids read certain books?  I keep seeing kudos given to parents who allow their kids to read certain authors and topics when they were younger, and honestly it confounds me.     The author that I’ve heard this said about most, […]

Practice Makes Perfect, Right?

Practice Makes Perfect, Right?

Considering I mention it enough, I’m an artist.  I love to try new things, and practicing makes perfect, right-o…  Now, really the above is one of my newest attempts at a newer (for me) art style.  It’s all sorts of uber-adorable and sure, I love […]

I Don’t Wanna And You Can’t Make Me

I Don’t Wanna And You Can’t Make Me

It's like you expected the image to be relevant or something. Making a resume is never, ever fun.  There’s an added pressure for those in the arts to make theirs different and all sorts creative too, which is a bit fun side it’s also more pressure.  I do know what look I’m going for, so that’s a plus.  I just don’t want to do it just to create pretty things professionally.  What can I say?  I’m complaining odd. 

I did get one of the jobs I applied for (so far), I thought it was in my area (or at the very least able to be handled off site), apparently they would need me to move to out west to be creative.  Mind you, this was a miscommunication (as in they listed the job in my local area, go figure).

To say the very least, that’s just not possible right now.

While I’m not stopping the things I have now anytime soon, I want to branch out more too.  What I’m looking for is more freelance work than normal 9-5, basically what I’m doing now time wise but with more art.

Admittedly, the writing work I have at this moment has helped me out massively both in learning and developing my writing (for serious, I love that).

What I am looking for is something in the creative freelancer area in scrapbooking materials or greeting cards.  Most of those can usually be handled at home and through the mail and email (depending on the companies).

Letterpress Vintage: With a Touch of Je ne Sais Quois

Letterpress Vintage: With a Touch of Je ne Sais Quois

I have been in love with general letterpress circa 1800’s art and general design for so long now.  While I’m far from alone, I’ve finally gotten around to actually designing some things using it, maybe it’s just that I have this insane urge to make […]

What is This ‘Free Time’ You Speak of?

What is This ‘Free Time’ You Speak of?

I’m not too sure myself, but for some reason I seem to have found myself a bit of time to do pretty much whatever (rare indeed).  The brunt of my work type things are done, and and the rest of it is at a decent […]
