And a month into the new year no less
Sorry for my repeated absences from dA, again I've been UBER busy with finishing up my program and working. So a couple of things have happened (good news first, bad news last):
Remember the book project I was working on? IT'S DONE AND PUBLISHED BY THE AUTHOR WOOOOOOOT!
It's a children's book titled The Catch of the Day
and the author's name is Harris Tobias. You can grab a physical copy on CreateSpace: www.createspace.com/5284571
Or a Kindle version on Amazon: www.amazon.com/dp/B00STUZF5S
It's the first time my work has appeared in print media You should buy a copy
I've successfully been teaching a watercolor class for kiddles on Saturday mornings for about a month now. 2 more classes left in this session and hopefully my class will run again for the following 6 week session.
I've been working my assistantship (grad assistant) and so far that's going ok. It's a little stressful sometimes depending on the things I have to do, but for the most part ok.
I've applied for several shows (Virtual Insanity at Whitdel Arts, Art Now Series: Painting 2015 at the Ann Arbor Art Center, Art. Downtown in Grand Rapids, Museum Without Walls: American Art Now in Central Park, and Folktales & Legends at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center).
I'm looking for teaching jobs, residencies, and the like and it turns out there's a semester long residency at Central Michigan University (only 2 hours north of where I currently live) that would be PERFECT so I'm applying
There's a great chance I won't get it, but I'm trying to be optimistic XD.
I was getting a ganglion cyst in my right wrist (dominant hand) that was starting to effect my range of motion and causing some discomfort but it popped on it's own after I accidentally slammed my hand into a door
Hopefully it won't return and lastly, the bad news...
Remember that awesome internship I had that turned into a job? Well I got laid off a week after I got back from Christmas vacation
Honestly I wasn't even all that upset. I was expecting something of that caliber to happen (since these things always
happen), so eh, I'll figure it out. Finger's crossed
Soooo, what's up with you guys?
