About once a month, I meet with a group of fellow artists and makers to discuss life, art making, and business. It started as a simple meeting for coffee with an old classmate, and has evolved into this beautiful and motivational group. We try to meet every month, but with summer upon us, we'd taken a bit of a break. Yesterday was our first meeting in a while, and I left feeling so inspired. In fact, I sketched out over a dozen new thumbnails when I got back to the studio because I was overflowing with ideas. I cannot tell you what an amazing feeling that is! To be honest, I've been in a bit of a creative lull, and have really been aching to feel direction again, and for the first time in a while I have new creative energy.
Most of these ideas are still in their embryonic stage, so I won't reveal anything quite yet! I still have a lot of planning and making to do, but I am excited about the new possibilities this new chapter will bring. I have loved exploring weddings and all the stationery and signage involved with that, and have new ideas that will bring my vision to a wider audience. Additionally, I have been feeling like my illustration and design work has been a bit on the back burner, and it finally feels like time to bring that into focus again.
I'll be sharing snippets of my progress and sneak peeks of upcoming projects here. I can't wait to start working on the newness.
