Creating Ads

     I'm working out the magazine content and I think the first publication is in October. Thereafter, in January, April and July. I've an assignment to complete a stop motion ad, which I'll share here. I've done a few in recent years but I'm a newbie, so I hope I do it justice.  I submitted a Facebook ad today of the video in this post. I hope to do a stop motion for the site over the summer. It's going to be a busy one too. I've been scrounging for energy this weekend, so it looks as if I'll...

New Work, New Lifestyle and Faith Ringgold

Interestingly enough, I'm two weeks on the vegan path and I found myself with a vicious cold that hit me on Sunday. I'm about 75% today but gee wee, it was rough! I pushed myself to complete a piece through it all. About two years ago, I was visiting my acupuncturist to relieve me of some health issues and because I eventually resorted back to die-hard eating habits that didn't benefit my overall health, the problem resurfaced. I've gone a step further in adapting to a vegan lifestyle. Outside of this cold, I feel great. My energy is up, I sleep...

Untitled No. 2

It's a rainy day in Georgia. That being said, I won't be cutting wood in my extended studio today, which is the garage. I am, however, conceptualizing my promo, which will be a combination of stop motion and still photos.  So here's the direction... I'm a 70s kinda chiq. I'm stuck there. I have so many memories of growing up during that time. And not that my work is autobiographical. It was just the best of times. I tend to reflect on my southerness, if you will but the more I flip through my sketches, everyone looked so 70ish in...

Untitled No. 1

The weekend has found me brainstorming my marketing campaign. It's all about branding. I'm off to a rough start with the videos, so I'll have to revert to what I'm fairly good at and that is the direct mail pieces. My head is swirling with the social media portion, trying to integrate the platforms. Facebook rejected the Surrender piece but none of the products have migrated to my business page because I'm still being reviewed.  Other than that, I'm preparing for a fundraising event that benefits people with Alzheimer's in June. I'm also gearing up for 2 shows in October....

Resin Art, Limited Editions & Hand-Embellished Prints

There's been a steady stream of busy here. I continue working on the site and now have added prints that were not available previously. Since getting off work, that's pretty much the mode I've been in. A banana for snack but I need to get something more substantial. I resisted the pizza because I'm trying to do better, so I've opted for the curry chicken and spinach.  In the midst of it all, I'm engrossed in Married at First Sight. It takes a special set of people to do that sort of thing. Anyway... One thing that popped in my head today,...
