Happy new year talented people!
I only wanted to say hello everyone, I'm still alive!!! Many days passed since the last time I updated this journal and... I believe that my last deviation was in October. I was very busy working a lot in a big project for a client that finally didn't work =/ and then holidays came round, etc... So, I haven't been able to check the works and journals of people I watch, or to submit new stuff.
About work, the end of 2009 wasn't as good I had wanted to be. However a freelancer's life is like this. Not only it is freedom and happiness but also hard work, specially during bussiness meeting time. You have to split yourself in two parts, the creative artist
and the intelligent representative
. This split personality it's too stressing to me. Which has a negative outcome on the production of my own stuff.
So,I'm planning this year in a different way now. I'm going place the focus on my own projects and make money through little jobs only for already known clients and making commissions (caricatures loisa.deviantart.com/gallery/#…
) here in DA.
What do you think? Is it possible to earn good money making commissions? Do you know another way to make money trough your own stuff? I really really appreciate your comments. Let me know your experience as an independent artist.
I wish you the best for this year!
