All this week I’ve been thinking a lot about my work. Right now, I’m working to find a way to promote my Philadelphia travel series album. One thing I think I should do is change the album page. Something feels a bit unbalanced with the page. I’ve been browsing landing pages on themeforest. I have to buy one for a new website. Maybe I might use the one I buy for the album page as well. I have spent hours doing online work. It’s been taking time away from making new art. I feel horrible about this but it’s my only source of income at the moment. Sadly, I make very little money with the work I’m doing, extremely less than minimum wage. However, I think I found another job I can do. It’s a risk and I have to invest a small amount to get it going but I think it might help me. I will mention what that job is if I start it and make any income.
I feel conflicted and very stressed out at the moment. I’m working every day for pennies but I have hope that things can turn around. If the job I take helps pay bills and promote my work then I’m going to be more stressed out and busy but it will be worth it. I know I have to make this work somehow. I don’t want to compromise my art goals so I’m going to push myself more than I ever have in my life. I spend about 8 to 9 hours with my online work. It takes a few hours to create a new design. I can do both in one day. If I work more efficiently, I can accomplish my goals.
What I’m going to do is create new art every single day in April. I have no idea how I’m going to find the time to do this but it will happen. I am behind in my 2015 goals and I want to reach 100 designs by December 31st, 2015. My last design challenge was early last year. I am definitely due for another challenge. Push the limits! I’m not sure if I’m going to make a music video for each design but I’m going to try. The challenge is finding songs for music videos. Sometimes it takes more time to find a song than to make a music video. I would love to make portraits during April. I will create 10 digital portraits to the first ten people who ask for one in my exclusive art list. If you like a portrait and are not a part of the list, head on over to my album page and sign up. It’s free to sign up! You can also join via the exit pop up on this page.
I have a dream. I want to become one with color. Travel to places I’ve never been to before and explore nature with color. I want to wake up every morning and step inside that dream, until my dying breath. I will do what it takes to make this dream work on my terms. In order to stay on track with my goals, I have to make it to Chicago by the end of May. I am going to fight to make this dream a reality for me!
