Time Management How?
This is how my working day looks. I have several chores to do like returning library books and shopping after picking kiddies up from school and a meeting tonight I cannot cancel. The next few hours I want to achieve a ton of artwork BUT I have committed to today being a blogging, marketing, networking, business type day. Torn between knowing there is little time to do some finished work this week and staying obedient to my schedule is tough. I feel I have to be flexible without forgetting what actions needs to be kept in place long-term.
And so today I have decided to cut back the hours I work on the Internet and to allow a bit more painting to be done as “life” commitments are going to take some time today and during this week.
Illustrations this past week
I am happy to report that I have almost finished a double page spread illustration for one of my books. Now I am closer to having a package to show publishers. There are a few minor touches still to do but I have posted it as is.
Today - Christian book Illustration?
Today I want to do one of the illustrations I have prepared for a Christian book (personal project) that has been pressing on my heart. It is important that I work on this book as much as I can while I build up my children’s book illustration portfolio. I am ready to move onto the final illustration from the prepared drawing.
Illustration Friday - Reverse
What an interesting theme this week for Illustration Friday. It was quite a challenge but I came up with 2 original ideas. I also want to do a finished illustration for Illustration Friday from at least one of the sketches I prepared last night.
Last week I was contacted for some licensing illustration work for some fun children’s fabric panels. When this project is finalised I will share the fun designs I have been commissioned to do.
January business report
I know I owe you a run-down on what I got up to in January and I will post that next so you can see I have not been idle. I took my work on holidays to Pambula over January and did manage to get some work done. It was tough finding personal space with 3 kids in a busy camping ground but I did manage some work. January was still productive.
Sketchbooks & visual diaries - our secret ingredients to success
My main focus this month has been on sketching more regularly which has been fun and very worthwhile. I have heaps of sketches from the past month.
