Summers can get busy, right? You know what I mean. There are graduations, weddings, get-togethers, etc. All kinds of stuff. I’ve had them all recently — especially the past few weeks. So, what does that mean? Well, I haven’t completed as many daily illustrations as I intended. I enjoying creating them daily, and I just haven’t had the time. I’ve been busy with work — which is great! Trust me. That’s what keeps me in business. But, I’m really trying to expand my illustration career. I LOVE illustration. Not that I don’t love cartooning just as much (and probably more-so). Illustration has a nice break to it when I don’t involve writing. It’s just a visual. Which is a pleasant little time out for me. After all, we all know that writing is the hardest part (I make a lot of assumptions).
Wow. I just noticed this is my THIRD installment of my Week of Illustrations series. I guess that makes, well, quite a few illustrations. If I do this regularly, there should be a TON a year from now. Or at least a few pounds.
This is the second installment of my Week of Illustrations series — or whatever you’d like to call it. If you read the last one (which if you didn’t, you slacker, you can go read it here), I showed off some of my new digital art. This is the same deal. All of these were from the past week.
As I wrote previously, I’m working my way into the digital world with cartooning and illustrations. I’ve been trying to create at least one illustration a day. Challenging? Eh, a bit. However, it’s been good. And a good time. I’m starting to cherish this digital stuff, though — of course — I still love the ol’ pen and paper.
It was bound to happen sooner than later. This is 2017, right (unless I got my dates totally messed up). So, what’s happening? I’m switching a lot of my work to digital.
Along with cartooning, I’ve always had other business ventures that I’ve contemplated — everything from selling nutritional supplements, to drawing pet illustrations. None of them have worked out too well (whew!).
I don’t know what has been going on in April, but I have had a record-breaking number of typos and grammatical errors in my cartoons. You’ll probably notice a few in this blog post as well (if this post is anything like the ones in my cartoons this month).
I meant to write this a lot sooner than now. In typical “I’m busy” fashion though, this blog post is arriving almost a week late. But, it’s really no big deal. It’s here now, right?
It’s not often I title a blog post as a date, but this is one to remember.
If you’ve read previous posts of mine or follow me at all via my email subscription or Facebook, you know that I just recently launched a new book, Laser Pointers, Hairballs, and Other Cat Stuff. This being my first self-published book, I’m learning a lot. I’m planning on releasing two more books this year, so I’d better learn quick.
You may have seen me mention this already, but my new book, Laser Pointers, Hairballs, and Other Cat Stuff, is about to be released! Hence preorders.
