The project for the Chronicle got extended a bit on Tuesday afternoon with 4 additional spots. It was a little tight getting these done in time, with a trip to my Dad’s cardiologist added to the mix on Wednesday, but I was glad of the extra work this late in the year.
Been also starting work on the third ‘Amish Girl’ book, with a series of rough sketches that will be due mid January, plus I was also approached with a few new clients and potential jobs to keep me busy during the holidays. Another trip to Lansing tomorrow for my Dad’s chemo treatment, and I’ll most likely be winding down until after the Xmas break.
13 shopping days until Xmas, but there’s only about 4 more days to shop on Zazzle to guarantee shipping by Xmas eve. Been adding lots of new products the past few weeks, so click on the above ‘Lobster Clock’ to visit the storefront.
Meanwhile, still working on various projects here and there, including the illustration below, for US Catholic this morning, and a series of ‘Egg Head’ concept logos for a restaurant project my brother is involved with. (I’m partial to the one in the bottom center with the wide open mouth, which I’ve already slapped on a few zazzle products as an experiment)
And in the meantime, still waiting to hear on some concept sketches for a Chronicle Supplement project that I sent off for approval yesterday.
Above was a quick turnaround piece for the Chronicle this week. Next week looks sort of busy, but in the meantime, I’m mostly doing rough sketches for upcoming projects, and designing new products for the Zazzle store. Adding new products all the time, and they make great, one of a kind Christmas gifts for those oddball characters on your holiday shopping list. Say, how about a ‘Santazilla Wall Clock’?
Time for some shameless merchandise promoting. This weekend I discovered some more zazzle products that had previously had been hidden from my view for some reason, and so there’s a lot of new swag for sale at my store. Stop by and max that credit card out!
Today I finished up a quartet portrait commission that I got from one of my cousins following the ‘portrait challenge’ that I shared with my facebook friends last month. It is pretty amazing the difference it makes whether you are doing something for your own enjoyment versus an assignment. It took me forever to get motivated to get started with this one, and since it was for family, I really didn’t know what to charge for it.
