Okay, well after being nagged by many of my artist friends, and after attending the NCN convention last week, I finally got off my ass and created a blog so that I can share my work with everyone without using myspace or facebook.... Now I just have to keep up with posts and draw lots of new things...
I left Kaman's art shoppes after four years, and am not really doing any more retail caricature, so I won't have any updates that include that sort of art. But I will have to keep it up on my own. I just couldn't take retail anymore, I finally felt like my work was worth more than 20 bux a pop. I hope i'm right, and I hope I can get a job.
The convention was so inspiring, it was such a blast, I only regret not going sooner. I met so many talented artists, and even artists who I idolize. I ended up winning third place for best cartoon style, and first place for best body situation. I went there hoping I would be recognized, I hadn't dreamed of winning anything my first time, I was thrilled! :) Everyone was so supportive, and it was just really assuring having so many people compliment my work.
Now I'm back home in Philly, and the job search begins. I'm confident I can find something, but in the meantime I really want to try to stay in touch with all the people I met and I'm going to post my stuff on here to get some feedback. Anyways, I'll post my pictures from the con soon.
