WOYWW - Creative Heaven


Although I've not accepted anymore custom orders throughout the end of the year (simply to enjoy my wedding and honeymoon!), my desk is still busy with various illustrations and ideas that have been floating around in my head for months now.  Between classes four days a week, a part-time job at the school and misc illustration projects outside of these things, I've not really had the time to just sit down and let my mind wander on all things whimsical within my heart and soul.

I have to say, as much as I enjoy custom orders it is a wonderful artistic "break" to be able to do my own thing over the next few weeks.  This is something in which I feel is crucial in keeping one's creative mind fresh and flowing with bright, new ideas.  Uh huh.  It's much needed for me as I have several more Jolly Jake children's book covers to design as well as a new opportunity to draw children's illustrations for a non-profit organization.  Each of these are on my list for the coming new year.  Until then, I'm in creative heaven and thrilled to see my new ideas and designs coming alive on paper.  :)

  7. Great idea, step back and relax a bit before your big day....learning to say no or 'turn down' immediate delivery work is a real life skill. Well done you!
