I apologize first off, for the delay in making a new blog post. I promise I have been busy...however, unfortunately, because a decent amount of my work is gift-based or at least surprise-based in some manner, I cannot yet post any pictures of such artwork. However, I can at least offer this little fun piece of information...amongst the top internet searches that led to my website in the month of October was "Jesus Christ can't hit a curveball", or at least similar variations of that. So, thanks for that. Haha I would obviously attribute that to a couple of things...1. the Tribe was in the World Series, and 2. my Jobu's Rum artwork. But, anyways, back to my busy excuse. It just typically works out that mid-October to early December is by far my busiest time of the year in terms of commissioned work, and also just so happened to coincide with the Cubs playing in a whole lot of playoff games, that I was glued to the television watching..so, like sleep, my studio time was a bit limited as I continue my full-time "day job" status.
If you haven't figured out yet via my social media, my tendency to paint/draw Cubs-related artwork, etc., I am a life-long Cubs fan. So, the understatement of the decade (perhaps even longer) would be that I was slightly happy about the recent World Series outcome. I have a great deal of family and friends that are die-hard Indians fans, so I won't blabber on about the Cubbies out of respect for them. Just know that on the inside, I am a 13 year old girl with a crush right now. And, you can expect a Cubs/World Series tribute painting to be completed sometime after the holidays. So, stay tuned for that...might even be multiple pieces!!
I merely wanted to drop a quick post on everyone so you know I have survived the World Series, a whole lot of goat meat, some well-deserved Old Style's, and being a partial zombie for a few days afterwards. As soon as I can, I will share all the delightful artwork I have been able to create in the recent weeks and months. I certainly appreciate all the work and support you all give me, and I hope to create more and more in the coming years as I continue my journey towards a full-time art life.
P.S. - Go Cubs!
Not rocket science, just a bit of an inside look at my artwork...with some photos and possibly some humor mixed in for your enjoyment.
