A year ago today, after loosing my job as a graphic designer for 4 years at my employer,
I decided to retire from that field and become a full-time professional artist.
How’s it going after a year?
It’s been full of support, financial ups and downs, creative experimentation, meeting new people, and lots of work:
Refurbished the Birdhouse Farmers Market trailer
Worked on the Jackson Ward Mural
Taught at Visual Arts Center
Was a visiting artist at Henrico High School
Built bike trailers
Repaired and updating old benches
And letting people understand that if they need an oddball thing fixed, they “Know A Guy!”
And it’s been a wonderful year!
I want to thank you guys for the support, the business and keeping me from “pushing pixels” for a living. I’m going to continue being an artist and growing beyond my expectations.
It’s boom or bust from now on… and it’s gonna be a hell of a ride!
