The past few days have been fantastic! It's VERY cold here in NE Ohio which has to be part of the reason that my brain and creativity is firing like crazy! When I was working in Fort Myers, FL this Fall, I swore I would move heaven and earth to be back in Ohio for Christmas and soak up some of this weather.
I made it home in time and have enjoyed every second of my time off over the past two weeks.
I've also had the opportunity to catch up with some wise inspirational people to chat up with the hope of narrowing down my plans with my art this year. Do I:
Use my images on mass produced merchandise?
Seek out authors who are looking for illustrators?
Focus more on selling art prints and less on original pieces?
Partner with other artists and hit the show circuit?
Continue experimenting with different mediums and see where that leads?
After spending the past year supporting survivors of disasters all over the country with FEMA my creativity energy was low to none; it now appears it's bursting out to make up for lost time.
