Well, I literally lost track of time and forgot what day it was x_x, so, Good evening ya’ll! or should I say, Goodmornins, because it’s like, 1am my time when I started writing this lol.
I joke with Justin quite a bit– we both blog and he goes on about how he has his stuff written in advance, while I’m literally like, writing on the fly. Unfortunately I’m not as organized as he is, or rather, I’m prone to operate in organized chaos.
So, Here’s what I have for you today!
So I printed this as a book that was like 8.5 by 5.5, or whatever size it was, I cant remember, can’t find my ruler, so, we’ll go with that! But, I limited myself to 8 pages in total for budgeting reasons, since the costs to print can get pretty high the more pages you add, so in those 8 pages, I tried to find the best images to showcase– many of which is my most recent work, created within the past 8 months or so. There’s only one collection of images that no one has seen, and it’s of the butterfly girl, the page before last, which were illustrations I did for a children’s book years ago called– A Butterfly Named Bee.
What I hope to do in the future, especially since I’ll have the luxury of time, and I’m not rushing to prepare for SDCC, is to take what I’ve learned doing this small illustration book, and collect all the illustrations I do in a 12 month period, at the end of the year, and compile them into a book to showcase my work. The only difference is, I want to include rough studies, and sketches and show process work, along with descriptions of how some of my illustrations are made, so hopefully by December, I can put together a more lengthy portfolio– using this one as a starter.
But, I really worked myself hard in the past couple of months– so much, that I’ve arranged to have a month off from work to allow myself to recover, which will be starting August 1st. I have a few jobs to finish before that, but I am sooooo ready >_<. What that means for my blog is, I wont be keeping a hard schedule during that period– soo, though I’ll continue to post throughout the month, there will be no Monday Evening posts. Just random ones, when I have something to share–so, yay for organized chaos!
Well I hope you enjoyed this post! Till next time, Enjoy 😀
