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!
