I know I am a bit late. for all this but I have been thinking  about 2013 and my goals to for 2014.

Some exciting things happened last year.  I finished illustrating
my first children's book.

I got a all "deep" and starving artisty and wondered if my style was actually "me" and experimented with some different styles.

It was fun to do something slightly different I learned allot from it. Perhaps most importantly I learned that my style is my style. I draw the way I do because its me and how I think and what makes me happy. 
I started Chris Oatleys magic box course and it has improved my art a ton. I was amazed at how much I learned in the first lesson! And if any one is thinking of taking this course do.

And my favorite illustration of the year was  this wise old monster.

So now looking forwards I have some goals that I hope will improve my are and expand my career this next year.

1.  Enter Spectrum (I will keep entering until they let me in by golly!)

2. Do 30 paintings from life in real paint (I am or may not show these to any one)

3. Send Post cards out every 2 months to Art Directors and Art Reps (no more slacking on the business side of illustration)

4. I also want to finish the graphic novel that I started. 

5. Become a Jedi (I know I am a little old to start training.)

Well those are my goals, I will keep you all updated, I hope your 2013 was great and I wish you an even better 2014!
