GRAVITY

I've been browsing Pinterest a lot recently, collecting typographic quote posters with the intention of switching out some of the artwork hanging around the house in favor of inspirational words instead.
As a side effect, all that pinteresting got me randomly wondering if there were any super cool graphic posters floating about that I might also want to display around the house... Particularly for the movie Gravity (one of my new all-time favorite films). After some searching of the interwebs, I found a cool poster or two but nothing that is (in my opinion) very definitive of the movie. So for now I decided to take and use a pre-existing poster which I already really liked on its own---except that I want to be able to see stars and the earth alongside that awesomely lonely floating figure. So with a bit of adjustment and editing, I tweaked my way to my ideal version of the Gravity movie poster.  See below.

Note: I intend no copyright infringement by sharing this customized version with you, I just wanted to share my excitement and enthusiasm for the film (which if you haven't seen...you are truly missing something mind bogglingly beautiful and important to the progress of cinema). So go see Gravity and enjoy.

That is all.

1.13.14

New year means no better time than today to keep living the dream. The dream may be changing (i.e. probably no more freelancing for the foreseeable future) but I'm more excited than ever to have the chance to chase my passions for the next 365 days.

Tasks at the forefront:

MORE DOODLES! Goal: Expand my body of work to include larger (and pricier) doodle paintings so that I might be able to join TurningArt.com some point soon. [Yay potential passive income!].
PROGRESS towards goal: FIVE new doodles have begun. I will focus on them exclusively until they are done so I can get the ball rolling while I turn my gaze towards writing.




MORE WRITING! Goal: Pick back up where I left off on my book project, start developing the characters and story further... working towards completing the crummy first draft by the end of 2014.
PROGRESS: Still excited to pursue this, but it's sidelined until I finish the new doodle paintings.

MORE PAINTING! Goal: Expand into the fine art market (hopefully in collaboration with my husband). Up first is clouds. Lots and lots of giant cloud paintings!
PROGRESS: Gathering inspiration. Going to start the first soon.

Happy days are where you look for them!
