Art!

So, many of you know that I’ve taken on a few projects as of late – well I’d been working on one in secret. I have no artistic (that is drawing) ability whatsoever. That includes painting as well.

A sample – My Dog

But, I used to be a semi-professional photographer, and I used to be pretty good at Photoshop as well, so I thought I’d combine the two to make a web store on a site called redbubble. Continue reading “Art!”

While the rejections come fast and hard, the successes are often few and far between – but that makes them all the more satisfying. Of course, I’m not saying that getting a hundred acceptance letters would be boring, but there’s something about that one in a million that just hits the spot.
