January was amazing start of the year, I had my first little art show opening locally in Norfolk at a wonderful handmade shop called Kitsch. Followed by a Q&A article on Altdaily. Then I got my 2012 Sketchbook Project in on time to Brooklyn Art Library to go on tour for 2013. I slammed out a website, and finished a logo for a local non-profit Prevent Child Abuse Hampton Roads and topped it off with a hand lettered Etsy Banner for Gymbohannah. I've been mentoring my intern fiercely, and sticking to her goals she landed her first design job in a desired location. In between all this, I have a household to run, drawing and writing whenever possible, and then a child to run around and be present with. It's been amazing, but I do not prefer this to be happening like this every month. I have a child and family to be part of, and they are my core values for who I am to my word and to my work. So being that said, inorder for me to completely thrive creatively somethings will have to give. More to come on that! But in the mean time the Febuary hearts of blues is already singing me a new tune, things are getting better this month already, I just dropped off new prints at Kitsch. So be sure to look for them when you visit their lovely store. I just love everything in there!
