So yeah, I’m sick…again. Seriously, kids are a blessing and all that, but no one ever tells you that they are little germ containers. Every time one kid comes home with some sickness, it spreads through the house like wildfire. So not only that I’m sick, I have all the kids sick with me.
And of course, this comes down at the worst time possible, because of a nice fan of my work PMed me and asked me nicely to do some cover art for their fan fiction, and I had all of these awesome plans for it. Then I got sick, but I am determined to get all of my work done this week and complete all of my commitments despite being sick.
I just really can’t afford to take another month off
To further discuss my art, I have basically been running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to sell my art and I have decided to actually do some research for a change. To make it as a working artist, you have to have some business savvy. So I have bought some books and it has given some idea where to start. I am also researching to more effectively market my art on social media. I will be totally posting a book rec list later on, so stay tuned for that!
I had to take a break last week because I was putting out mediocre work and I was not happy about. So my mother who is a traditional artist (in her minimal free time) told me I should take some time off. So I did, and I came back to do a bit of art that was actually back to my usual standard.
I think my problem was that I was trying to do art every day like I was art factory and not living breathing person who needs to have limits. So I will restrict doing art from every day down to two or three times a week. and doing a fanart once a week. I think that can work for me and the quality of work I want to put out. Because for me, the quality outranks quantity every time.
Now, I’m can barely concentrate and I’m about to fall asleep at my laptop, so I will be bringing this post to a close now. I see you guys on Friday for a new post.
