Gives Me a Purpose

It’s been a few days since I posted last. I’ve been working non-stop trying to prepare for this flea market on the 24th.

I’ve got 18 days to go and I’m starting to feel it. It’s probably the best and the worst thing for me to deal with. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a definitive goal, an objective.

I’m feeling slightly manic but (for the moment) it’s a good energy. Every waking moment for the most part, if I’m not at work, is devoted to getting this stuff done. I need to do this, as much for myself as for the potential for income.

I think I work well under pressure, and having a deadline has really given me the drive to get my stuff done and a goal to obtain, not to mention the creativity I’m finding it fosters. So many cool ideas and so little time!

About bonefishdesigns

I hold a BFA in printmaking and drawing from Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, WV. Drawing and illustration have always been my passion and I make my living teaching people how to draw and paint. Currently, in addition to my work as a lifeguard, swim instructor and an art teacher, I'm also an apprentice to a tattoo artist and have done quite a bit of flash as well. I started this blog more as a way for me to keep track of my thoughts and inspiration, resources and references but I'm more than happy to welcome you to it with open arms.
