Yes, it has been quite a while and it has felt like that for me too. My art life has gone through some changes over the past year or so. 2016 was quite an eye opener for me being on the art show circuit and trying to make a living selling art that is a luxury.
After a few years of misses, it was time to head back to the original plan of designing. Graphic Design is always in need and in most cases it is considered a necessity, not as much of a luxury, as fine art. I suppose depending on the cost and popularity of the artist, graphic design could become a luxury, but in my case I am still affordable to most.
With that said, I have built up my design business over the last year to the point where I finally have a bit of free time to “art on the side.” In starting this blog up again, I am actually planning to share both what I have been working on and also my story of trying to make a living as an artist over the last decade.
So — hello again!
