So, another year of self-employment. I had some good clients this year, I must admit. But, alas, it wasn't stellar for me. I struggled to produce some good work for people this time around, and I think my skills are starting to get a bit rusty. It's time to bite the proverbial bullet and learn some new tricks. The ocean's getting a bit crowded with better artists than I am, and it's starting to get difficult to keep being noticed by the right people (read: people who are willing to pay a living wage to an artist who just wants to eat and have rent in a slightly less crummy part of town).
I turn 34 this year. I'm still struggling financially (but so is everyone), and I've discovered my work is suffering mostly because I've become rather lazy...it's time to put a stop to this trend.
So, without further ado, it's time to hit the ground running and refocus! Time to improve my skills...or at least keep up with these amazing artists who absolutely blow my mind with their incredible work.
