Between my honeymoon, the holidays and the dawning of a new year I fell behind in many areas of my life. But a new year always brings new vigor! So I rounded up my favorites from my Grad School cohort in order to get together a virtual comics working group to help keep me on the path to creating things. I also spent a lot of time these last two months crafting email marketing campaigns for the Yogi I’ve been doing freelance work for. Now to get back on the comics grind!
In the midst of all the holiday hub-bub I missed my December blog post about what’s going on. Basically it was all about family and friends – wrapping up working on the Mercury Moon website and finishing up this website!
In January work was a little slow – I illustrated a couple horses, worked on the Mercury Moon logo and wrote a piece about Diversity in Equestrian Media for The Plaid Horse which blew up! I’m glad to get the conversation going even if some of the voices out there are toxic. One step at a time.
Long time no talk – a lot has happened since my last post. I finished my Grad School program in 2016 and walk in the commencement ceremony in 2017. I moved from NorCal to SoCal, traversed a web of making new friends, building new routines, and discovering who I am down here.
I’m finally getting my act together and doing it! At the beginning of September of this year I vowed to use the last quarter of the year to dust off, update, and publish my portfolio site as well as launching a webstore. I’ve been working diligently a little bit everyday. Things just started happening at the end of October – I was asked to do 2 freelance projects (illustration and website + branding) as well write a blog piece for The Plaid Horse (which did very well!) Right after Thanksgiving I officially launched my webstore (link on my About page) we’re down to 1 month left of the year.
Welcome to the Soft Launch and I look forward to being more active!
