The Creative Talent Network eXpo is coming up in a couple of weeks, and as I sat this afternoon, refining my business card, I thought about how I haven't blogged in some time. Time has been tight the last couple of months as I work part time as a graphic designer and part time as a freelance illustrator. I have recently completed a few freelance promotional projects for a church in Upland and am currently working on commissioned paintings for a camp in the Santa Barbara mountains. All this work, though it has been paid, has left me with little chance to work on my personal portfolio. Below is my current project, which has remained in this phase for weeks!
