Hiatus - Important Announcement
Ok guys, this is an announcement that I'm taking an artistic break for a month. I'm going up to San Jose to visit some friends and to work on some projects and have a little "me" time. I will still do my owed commissions if I get inspired to work on them (I will be taking them with me, as well as my own computer), but please understand that considering I work 7 days a week (!!!!) doing other people's ideas, I need to have a little bit of "me" time to get ready for CaliFur and to recharge my batteries. Expect a new edition of Thorn Doodles to be in production during this time as well.

If this is a problem with anyone and you recently commissioned me for something, please write me and we can reach some sort of agreement. I'm not saying I won't be working on commissions during this time, far from it, I just want it to be known that I won't be working on them as fast as I have been and to not expect me to crank stuff out at a steady pace while I'm away. But truth be told if you're patient you'll get a better result since I won't feel "forced" and my skills improve as the weeks go on (at least so I hope).

Hope this doesn't put anyone off, like I said, I'm totally up for e-mails and negotiations. I just need a little Thorn time.

Current Mood: exhausted exhausted

Go. Relax. Have fun. Call Silber and make all kinds of silly romanting noises at one another in German. See you when you get back. =};-3

ah, good, that'll give you some time to work on the one-city-block-long mural with all of my 2,623 characters that i commisioned you for.

good for you! Seriously, Ive been watching the amount of commissions you are always working on and I wonder how the heck you keep up with it all and don't get burned out! I look forward to seeing the work you create for yourself..but mostly relax and have fun!

to tell you the truth I'm just on /thiiiiis/ side of insanity. I dont have a regular job right now so i have to keep the flow going otherwise I'll go broke. I've been doing my books now though and despite the amount of commissions I get, I'm not making peanuts. I mean I'm grateful and everything, but I'd be better off at McD's. Fortunately when I go to Ohio I'll have a regular job and this so I can relax a little and not power down so much.

I hear you there, unfortunately the art world really doesnt earn you enough to get by unless you are already a quite well established artist..and that just takes time! Currently my only income is my art but luckily my fiance's job is what keeps me being able to do that..for how much longer with the way things are going Im not sure...but even I get burned out and depressed when I see how hard I have to work for what seems like money I never even get to see.

Anyway I am truly wishing you the best of luck, in what little dealings I have had with you, you seem like a genuinely great person...and good people just deserve to make it. So cheers to ya!

If you finish mine while in San Jose, you can hand it to me personally, as I live in San Jose. Or you can show me sketches in person or something, just let me know.

For personal reasons I probably won't do the in person thing and just keep it to internet stuff as I'm not very familiar with the area and I'm not too keen on meeting unfamiliar folks in person alone if thats alright. I appreciate the offer though :>

Your images are digital though so it makes sense that I can just e-mail them to you as I can't really hand you a digital file in person unless its on a disk o_O

No problem, fully understand.

Gah I can completely relate. I'm at the end of a 53 page full color illustration project i'm doing for a friend and have decided that part of my mind has been sucked out through the stylus and won't be returning any time soon.

Two more pieces and I'm going to retire to stick drawings.

UGH! 53 pages? *twitch* Dude...you win. I have no right to be complaining XD
hartssong From: hartssong Date: March 13th, 2006 09:38 am (UTC) (Link)
Yay I win the intraweb!! :P To be fair it's pretty simple design layouts and such, nothing horribly detailed. But jesus...No....more....elves. *froths* I see elves in my sleep...they want my cookies. I should be asleep now.

That reminds me of the time I had to draw 25 multiracial children cut outs for this teacher's classroom. Each child had to be unique, colored, about 7.5 inches tall and be easily cut out for lamination and posting.

It got to a point where I ran out of design ideas and I started basing them off of people I knew....and talking to them....and having conversations with them in my head. Some resembled folks I hated in middle school so I'm sure you can imagine how this all played out @_@

LMAO, wow! That beats the nightmare I had last night of the elves crawling out of thier files and deleting each other in a war of monumental proportions. I woke up scrambling to the computer and in a moment of angels singing found all my files still complete.

Never...again. That's the only thing going on in my head. I already thought one of them winked at me tonight while I was coloring.

Big projects are the bad things.
