Deadline Crunch

Another busy week of freelancing. I’ve fallen a bit behind on my character design work for 3-2-1 Penguins, and since we are wrapping up pre-production it’s crunch time, the worst time to fall behind. Besides Penguins I’m also working on an advertising mascot, an illustration for a software company, an illustration for a Spanish curriculum textbook, and a series of Bible flashcards. Lots of late nights chained to my computer desk.

When push comes to shove I would rather try to do a good job at a few things than do a mediocre job at a lot of things. Besides, my clients don’t really care what else I have on my plate (nor should they). They are paying me to do my best work for their project, and it would be unfair to give them any less. So, since no one pays me to do this blog I’m going to have to slow down on my posting a bit.

I don’t want the lull to last too long; my goal is to post something every weekday so that readers will keep coming back. But in the near future there may be a temporary drop in the frequency of my posts until I can catch my breath. I beg your indulgence.

In the mean time, as always you are encouraged to visit the Art Blogs listed over on the left-hand column of my blog. You’ll see some amazing and inspiring work, as well as a few good resources.
