Illustration Friday: Deja-vu and Resolutions...

here's some quick doodling from last week... as I look at these, it seems to me, I had already drawn something like this... Deja-vu!

2011 - Out with the old, in with the new! --So they say!

I took a break over the holidays and like most people, had the opportunity to reflect on my goals and direction. I thought about what my goals were at the beginning of 2010 and assessed how many of those goals I met or didn't meet and why.
As 2011 gets started and I think of what I want to accomplish this year ( I really need to clone myself!). There's so much I want to accomplish, but I need to be realistic with my time as well. I have been more aggressive in pursuing my website and graphic design business. I even started a blog in Wordpress dedicated just to that and I've had great results so far. However, my goal of entering the children's illustration market has not been forgotten and for 2011 my focus is:
  • Expand my mailing list
  • Send a promotional piece at least every quarter
  • Update and keep it current
  • Make more search engine friendly
  • Draw every day for a month (thinking of February since it's short!)... even if I'm short on time, just a quick doodle. Not sure if time will allow me to blog about it.
  • Update this blog at least once a month
So there you have it, not a long list or one that seems unreasonable. Will it yield results... we shall see...

Happy 2011 Everyone!
