Changing direction.

Well I kind of changed my mine temporarily about finding a new web site after thinking about it. Instead I’m going to use this really nice online portfolio that I found at one of my favorite haunts for fellow artists.
Its really great because its quite generous with its space regarding how much content you can load in there regarding your works. Plus when you get the hang of using the stuff to customize your site, its easy to put together.  So for now going to use this as a mini backup web site for a more stable way of showing the people who are behind these potential job opportunities and not worrying about the darn site being down.
That unfortunately always seems to happen to me when I have stuff to show with my original site. Its embarrassing and frustrating.
So anyway, for a free portfolio site this mini site for me is really great and hopefully stable enough so that in the future, I don’t go though any more of this nonsense.  There’s also a premium part of the site of course but I really don’t need that.
So any one needing a really good and generous place for your portfolio check out

Trying to stay enthusiastic

Looks like I started yet another personal project. Another Spike the tiger illustration this time for the other part of my site. See previous post about the drawings, completed project and renovated creative part of my site. It sure beats, being bummed out over my current situation. 

Oh yeah got rid of the "labels thing"  Felt it was pretty redundant since you can view current and previous art work at my web site. Going to replace that with something else soon.

Where are they????

Ugh what did I do with those tie-dye tees I did number of years ago, You know? The ones that are very similar to the ones I painted dolphins on?  Its so frustrating when you loose something that you really wanted to paint something on.  After I tie-dyed these pink and red glow-in-the -dark tees I put them away for awhile till I could use them for something. But now its like they fell in to the center of the earth and its driving me nuts now. But then so is every thing else these days. Like trying to make some cash. Yeah I know I’m not the only one in this situation ……..Aaaaaaaaack!

Just that I really wanted to paint some butterflies on them but instead I found every other tee I bought for the purpose of future decorating. So I settled on some other tie-dyed shirts that were similar that I also had put away earlier.  But instead of making a nice chalk print on the shirts, I got nothing. Yet more frustration. So now at that point I ran upstairs and made a few transfer prints from the printer and then ironed on those butterflies so I had a starting point for my painting.  Um no, I’m not cheating since I already drew these earlier elsewhere and fixed it up for this purpose.  OK so now I have something ready to paint but I’m still stumped as to where those other tees are.

Tapping in

This latest vector illustration represents “tapping in” to your talents and making them work for you. Kind of like milking a cow or in this case collecting sap from a tree and making syrup. Of course instead of collecting sap you’re collecting coins. Can now be viewed at my web site too.
