It's been a busy and exhausting week in the life of me.

I worked at a temporary second job for the week in between the hours of my normal job so let's just say I've been a little more tired than normal.

But...I did manage to get some work on my dinosaur book. Here's another sneak peak.

Ha, I just realized you can tell I painted my nails in between making the table and the characters. What do you think? (About the work not my nails.)

Also, I added some new prints to my Esty Store.

Friday I met with one of my old professors. I don't think I would have made it through my senior year without him and his fiance (who was another one of my professors) but don't let him know I said that. We talked a lot about how I can get more work as an illustrator. Talking with him always helps me focus on what I really want to do and not what I think everyone else thinks I should do. I've come to realize that illustrating is what makes me the happiest and it's what I want to do with the rest of my life. That's right, illustrating not graphic design. I could probably force myself into a graphic design career but I wouldn't be very happy at the end of the day. I never liked branding anyways.

Tonight is CSCA Presents Jessica Hirche. She is AMAZING. I'm so excited to listen to her speak. Jessica first got her taste of fame in the design word with her BLOG called the Daily Drop Cap. She illustrates one letter a day. I highly recommend reading her about section on her site.

Tomorrow after work I'm going to check out the Independent's Day 2010.  It should be a fun time and I always find inspiration at art festivals.

This week should be a bit quieter so hopefully I can get some more done on the book.
