It's been about 8 days since my last post, which is a pretty long time for me to go without writing something, but it's been a busy few weeks. This month I got a large wave of projects and opportunities for shows that kind of swept me into the sea, and now I'm treading water to try and do my best to take advantage of all of them. I realized I have a slight problem saying no to opportunity, because I know something good could come of it. While it's good to be busy and have things to work toward, a certain stress level comes along with that. Still trying to figure out the best way to manage that. I'm no expert at that by any means. However, I know it will all get done and there's no better feeling than accomplishing goals.
I keep interrupting projects I am working on to tackle projects that have come up and have deadlines approaching sooner. It's kind of chaotic.
Currently, I have seven shows to prepare for. Two in Portland (OR), one in Astoria (OR), one in Mexico, one in NYC, one in Seattle, and one in Santa Monica (CA). This number could possibly increase to nine shows soon. All these are group shows by the way up through November. Haha. If there were any solo shows in there that would be a bit too crazy.
Also have some publications I did some art for that should be coming out in the not too distant future. A few from the UK.
Earlier this month I finished working on some artwork for a record album cover. Never done something for vinyl before. Pretty exciting. I'm really pleased with the way the art turned out. Can't wait to see it printed.
In addition to preparing for the shows, I'm currently working on a cd cover and insert for a band. That's first on the list currently.
Also have an animation project and mural project in the works. More on that later.
A lot of this stuff is kind of under wraps at this point, so I haven't been posting a ton on my flickr page, but know that art is being made.
My hi-tech system of keeping track of projects and due dates :)
