My life and all the arms i own have had their hands in everyplace possible due to my own inability to settle on what my profession actually is. Lately, the picture has become clearer. ‘Consolidation is the key’ has been my internal mantra. Loose ends are being tied up financially and old accounts are becoming obsolete and disappearing whenever i remember that i had them in the first place. My iPad, in this respect, is becoming my tool of choice. The real reason i ended up on wordpress besides my need to get organized? The app was free and user friendly. So sorry Blogspot, but the bird had to fly the coop.
The Profession i finally realized i could do is Freelance Artist, but more specifically, a CARICATURE artist. The word takes a bit of practice to get the hang of so i’ll forgive those who are still struggling. My life is one big pile of luck, and the fates have seen fit to put caricatures into the mix. Through other random happenstances, i now travel working at fairs and festivals, one thing i always wanted from a career, and draw, which is the second this i always wanted from a career. Working the fair circuits has added the Fila (sp.?) to my Gumbo.
I have so many stories, artworks, and projects to share and my hope for this blog is to just practice a sort of work ethic for myself. A small sense of normalcy in this hectic road i’ve chosen.
Besides that, i’m getting married in two weeks.
I’ll leave this first post with my most recent easel demo that i use for the fairs.
