Greetings! After (slightly) running around like a chicken with its head cut off I think I have now found my rhythm. Recently I received an awesome opportunity to illustrate flash cards for teaching English in Japan. I will be completing 500 flash cards that will be used in schools for elementary and upper elementary students. (Yes, I said 500) Thankfully I have a large window of time to complete the job, which gives me the flexibility within my studio schedule. When I first got the job I went through a bit of wobbling when it came to studio time vs. mommy time. So I plopped myself down and figured out a schedule that will work for both my boys and my artsy self. (Raise the roof!)
One thing that I still need to include into my schedule is reading. I have books from Spring Break that I haven’t touched since our plane landed and the real world began again. (Pout) I think that I will have to take the “bulls by the horns” and figure something. I simply can’t watch another day go by while adding yet another layer of dust to that abandoned story. (Not cool, Emily. Not cool.) But as I tackle that next, take a minute to enjoy this illustration for the week, and be blessed.
PS I love my job!
