So sorry guys, I totally forgot to set down and do my usual Monday post. I was just so exhausted with the lack of sleep and I just forgot. I didn’t even do any art yesterday (I did the Majikku on Sunday). and I guess I just needed a break. So right now, I’m just concentrating on taking the next step of my career and I totally need to sit down and do some more research.
I think the harder part is that I’m trying to find time to balance everything that I had to do. Like yesterday, I did a YouTube video and honestly, I have no time to edit it. I’m honestly considering not posting it at all because I rather be behind the camera than in front of it.
I actually going to try to go into the stock images business once I’m successful at the art. There is a real lack of diversity when it comes to stock photos. It’s all white, skinny people and I want to sort of fill that lack. However, I won’t be doing that until I’m successful at the art and I have the time.
I have also been wondering if I should go back to do more covers. I have been doing fanfiction covers, but I have basically stopped doing covers since January I think. As for art prints marketing, I have no idea where, to begin with that. Who, exactly in the market for digital art? Who’s buying it? I have no idea where to even start my research with that.
There is just so much to learn, and not so much time to do everything I need to do. I am also considering going to art school as a way to open doors for in my career, but honestly, I do have 50k to just go to school. And I have a defaulted student loan, so there is no help there. Then add, the kids and it just looks impossible. I might just have to wait until I have some income to try to go to art school. *sigh*
There are so many options, and I think the right thing is to stay on course. As for blogging. especially here has made it better for me. I like helping people, and I like help other photo manipulators have an easier road than I currently have. To me, it really feels that I have been like I have been stumbling in the dark.
There really hasn’t been a lot of support for artists like me, because maybe it’s such a new medium. Honestly, if I ever start making big money I’m going to invest in maybe a photo manipulator forum of some sort.
Anyway, as for my ‘real life’, the family is gearing up for Easter. I actually got a new haircut to prepare for the occasion and my stepdad has been slaving away getting the front yard in tip-top shape. We are also preparing for upcoming summer and making plans. We always say we have these millions of plans but we end up broke and at home for the rest of the summer. So I’m praying that it won’t happen to us this year.
Well, I think that’s all for this week guys. I’m off to batten down the hatches because a huge storm has just rolled in. *sigh*. I hope you guys have a wonderful week and stay tuned for my post on Friday.
