Congrats lee hope the move works out well for you.What you say makes a lot of sense,I grew up very poor , I was also taught to only buy what you can afford,and stay away from credit. Reading what the other guys say maybe artists are more sensible than other people and not so materialistic,and tend to be more into family and friends and pets than processions. Good luck.
Thank you @nyrryl-cadiz Ooh the 3rd one down is really interesting do u know where u got that image from? They are making a booklet however they’re going to get someone else to do all the graphic-design type parts, (Luckily as I have no clue about designing a booklet)
@nowayme You could always do another piece and make it a double page layout of the dentist talking to the mother about her son and in the background have the door to the room where it is all trashed and you can see the pirate hiding on top of the cabinet. Looking forward to seeing whatever you come up with.
@gary-wilkinson Hey Gary - the critiques will come back - we just have so many classes we need to post up before we feel we can spend the time there. We've talked about outsourcing or hiring teachers to critique but that opens up a bunch of problems as well...I can't wait for the day that I have all my classes up/re-made so I can spend time helping students with their work.
I have ongoing weekly skype classes with EB Lewis. It has been extremely helpful. He helps me not only with my art but with the whole storytelling process. He's brutally honest which can be tough, but I've pushed myself harder knowing I have an assignment he'll be critiquing each week. Each 30 min. Skype is 25.00 (you pay 100 every 4 classes). Info. Is on "mentorship" link on his website. Started over a year ago and one of the books he's helped me with is now under contract with Holiday House
I was wondering if I could get recommendations for a course similar to 'Turbocharging your creativity' course, one I can check out as a temporary substitute? I would love to enroll for 'Turbocharging your creativity' but the course is not available right now.
