All Artwork (c)2017-2018 Lauren Curtis
For all of you out there who are self-employed, especially in an artistic career, you know how much work it is to, well, find work! Sometimes the actual search for freelance jobs becomes a full time job in itself but when things click and clients start rolling in it’s the best feeling! You get to create and do what you love while earning a living! I fully admit to often stressing out between clients, feeling like the next project may never come along, but then someone responds to my application or inquiry with a “yes, I want to hire you for this book, magazine, logo, painting, illustration….” and it’s such a rush!
The last few months, I’m very happy to say, have been filled with freelance illustration & design work for clients across the US & abroad, and I wanted to share some of my favorite projects with you. I’ve also been creating new one-of-a-kind Steampunk/Gothic jewelry as I vend at many events and this is the busiest time of the vending season. The work below is my specialty…hand drawn pen & ink work, sometimes with watercolors, as well as some pictures of the new jewelry (ranges from $15-$30 each). Please feel free to comment or ask me any questions about this work and I hope you enjoy it! Thanks for looking!
Softly Sleeping | Jusani. (CLICK THIS LINK TO SEE & VOTE FOR MY ARTWORK. THANKS!)
Hi All…many of you know that I’m a huge animal lover and animal rights activist so I just had to enter an image, in honor of one of my cats who has crossed over, in the Jusani contest. The winning designs are made into t-shirts, etc. and 10% of all proceeds from sales are donated to companion animal rescue groups so PLEASE take a minute to vote for my design…and for the animals!
Thanks so much,
