Meet simmy ( and simmy ). A raindrop that got too big to live in the clouds and fell to earth. Lucky us!
He needs a home.
And a super duper linkorama place - PDM yum.
- and thanks for the advice on paypal etc !
I felt like a bit of a change. Suddenly the pink and green layout was too heavy for summer.
I'm ready to put up the July/August inspiration links, and I am busy thinking about putting up a store where I will sell some stuff I made.
Which leads me to ask, would any of you fine folks have stories or thoughts on Paypal? or other means of money transfering? I have been researching, and would love personal opinions. Like is the whole shopping cart dealy easy to set up and maintain, etc.
thanks in advance!
Other movies evaporate from my brain the second the lights go up, but Napoleon Dynamite did not! We saw it a month or so ago, and Paul and I are still laughing about it. If you ever were a gangly, awkward, sensitive kid with teeth slightly too big for your head, like me, you will be shocked at how accurate this movie is. It's just really so good.
When I was first thinking I would like to draw pictures for money, some guy - an older established guy in the field- said I probably shouldn't bother. That the market was saturated and that there really wasn't much point or chances for young illustrators to break into the field. I don't remember now, but it is more than likely I went away to have a little cry and curse the guy, carrying my heavy portfolio and feeling stupid.
Isn't it a shame what one comment can do to a hopeful kid?
Though I barely think of him, I am sure he contributed to recurring feelings of "What IS the point anyway?".
I have decided that it doesn't matter if there is a "point".
What matters is showing up.
You go on a little holiday and when you get back to work, you discover that along with "People" and "HELLO!", your library now recieves "Cosmo Girl". You thought it couldn't get any better. Will any work get done? stay tuned.
