Another dummy sample.
I was thinking today, I started working on my portfolio and going to conferences 6 years ago. I found my groove and style at the end of 2007. A few month's later I won the Tomie portfolio award.
And then 2008 was the year of the beads. I made so many beads I couldn't see straight. Illustration went to the wayside along with the rest of my life.
And while I love my day job, couldn't be a happier beadmaker, I want this. My art in books, making images that tell stories and spark a child's imagination.
Life happens, sometimes you take the long road to get where you want to go. The point is to keep moving ahead.
The big question is how to keep going when the glow of the conference has faded? How to stay on track when other things are pulling you away? How do I get that momentum and keep moving forward so that in a year I can say I have poured my heart into this and hopefully have something to show for it?
Well those are the questions I'm asking myself tonight as I do a little soul searching.
