It's been a hectic few weeks. I've had commissions coming in non-stop for pet portraits, so everyday I'm drawing for at least 6 hours. It's fantastic. This is turning into a full-time job and that is making me so happy. It seems a bit of success has now finally come my way. I've had to go and make up some business cards because I'm going to parties and meeting people and they were asking me for some, so I decided I better go and get some made.
It's been hard trying to convince family members and such that this is now my full-time job. They would like to see me in an office somewhere, or in a store, being a "yes sir/ma'am" kind of person, but they don't realize that I am making money, I am being successful. Hopefully in time they will see that. Until then, I'm going to keep working on commissions every day, and be proactive. For once, I'm actually enjoying life, and feel proud of myself...I've never felt that way. I feel like I'm actually doing something with my life.
I'm also glad so many people liked my black paper/white pencil drawing, I may do some more pretty soon; I did love how it turned out.
I have created an official Facebook page, so anyone can look WIPs, my commission pricing, and also contact me if they'd like any artwork www.facebook.com/pages/Art-By-…
