IF: EXPIRED and HAI!


I think that's happened to most of us... We go in the fridge hoping to find a good snack/drink, only to find that it has expired! -- This was another quick sketch.

I've been thinking a lot lately trying to align my goals with what my heart desires and where the universe wants me to be at this point in time. I guess I'm in a bit of a funk and my creativity is being affected by it. Usually, my drawings flow rather natural but lately they feels forced. I have a ton of ideas but it is the hand to paper that's been somewhat blocked!



The very kind and talented Ginger Nielson shared a new jewel in the making... that is a new portfolio site for illustrators. It is called Hire and Illustrator. I encourage you to check them out. I just joined and love the fact that I was on their homepage for 3 days and I'm still on the first page when you click on artists. It is brand new, so I'm not sure how much traffic they are attracting at the moment. However, the fact that I can become a member and show my work and pay week by week and cancel any time I want, was what really sold me on the site. I'm aware that there are other sites out there, but this one really fit my needs.

BAH! Oh, man, I can smell it from here! Wonderful expression, Edrian. Those EYES, oh man, he's gonna hurl!

I'm sorry you're in a funk, but even your forced pieces are treasures. HAI sounds wonderful! I hope you get a lot of good opportunities from it.
