My art production has gone down considerably the last couple of months. I had a nasty summer bug. My wife and I are looking for a house, moved into a month to month apartment that is small 1 bedroom. That means my traditional art supplies have gone into storage. But the biggest impact on my art is that I took a marketing job for Ehrhart Energy. They/we sell propane, fuel oil, wood pellets and wood bricks. I grew up with the daughter of the owner. So… pure nepotism.
It was supposed to be a 3 week contract but it is now permanent. I write radio ads, I do graphic design, I crunch numbers trying to figure out trends. It is a cool job, steady paycheck and great people to work with and for.
I am still doing artwork, still accepting assignments, but I’m much more picky as my schedule is much more limited. I am hoping to work on some of my own projects too, now that I don’t have to solely rely on my art to make a living.
Meanwhile, I did get this out the door to Paul, who has commissioned several things in the past…. hope you like!
