I just wanted to share some exciting news.
As some of you know, for about a year I did the show art for a wonderful podcast called Forgotten Flix with good friends and all around good dudes Jason and Joel. I'll put the link at the bottom of this post. If you haven't ever listened, give it a go. It's good stuff. Trust me.
In any case last year I made the difficult decision to step away. I had, not long before that time, relocated my family from NJ to NC and between the adjustment from the Northeast to the South as well as just trying to get into a new routine I just felt exhausted, both mentally and physically. I had loads of commissions (not that I am complaining AT ALL) and just felt like I had too much on my plate. I also have a day job in which I usually work 60+ hours a week depending on what's going on. Also, a 4 year old. The 4 year old alone could be a full time job, ha ha.
I knew I needed a break. This became obvious when I missed a deadline for an episode. I take great pride in NEVER missing deadlines. So, with much understanding Joel an Jason and I had a conversation and we parted ways. Granted, as we are all friends it's not like I haven't spoken to them or stopped listening to the show (although I am a little bit behind) . So when the time came that I cleared some things off of my plate and more importantly recharge a little creatively I reached out to them to see if they'd have me back. They said no at first, so I had to do what all aspiring artists are sometimes forced to do and ... Ok, I'm kidding. They welcomed me back with open arms, much to my delight.
So here we go, Round 2. I have some new ideas for the way in which I present the art and I really hope you guys dig them. Should anyone see a piece in particular that they enjoy and be interested in purchasing, reach out to me about pricing. I would certainly be willing to sell the original show art although I am not going to go out of my way to list it in my store.
I'm sitting here wondering why I just wrote this long explanation. I am honestly not quite sure - I guess a part of me felt that writing it would help me feel better about leaving in the first place as it was a tough choice and certainly not one I particularly wanted to make.
All of that said, I am happy they are having me back and I am beyond happy to be back.
Time to go now, I have a show banner to work on. Have a great weekend everybody!
