Secret Dreams

One of the reasons I started this blog was to motivate myself to finally pursue one of my dreams.  I REALLY want to create an illustration line.  I love children's illustration and drawing and although I took art classes in college, I got a degree in business and marketing.  My student adviser advised me that it was a safer, more well rounded, degree.  And it is, and lucky for me I'm a pretty good self teacher (and googler) for anything I don't know how to do, or programs I need to learn to use (like illustrator!).  Anyway, I'm getting off track.  Last night I completed my first finished print, and although I won't be putting them in shop until I have a small series, I wanted to share it with you here.

  19. How very sweet and talented you are. I went the other route and got the masters in art degree and now I change a lot of diaper, and eat a lot of goldfish. I started a blog just a couple of weeks ago to figure out a path for me, just me. Come and check it out, would love good suggestions for it.
