Thoughts About Inktober

Today is October 31st and the final day of the Inktober challenge. Although I started a few days late (my first submission was on October 5th) I managed to maintain my streak. I see this as a great accomplishment and a reminder to myself what I am capable of. At the beginning, I intended to […]

What I Learned from Doing Festivals – Part 2

When participating in art festivals, especially the outdoor ones, you’re going to need a tent. Tents provide shade from the sun and protection from the elements. They also clearly mark the boundaries between your space and that of your neighbors. There are many tents out there, so choose the one that best suits your needs. […]
