I used a version of this for my Twitter background, which probably makes me seem like a crazy toy-maker instead of illustrator haha
Great news! - after years of hard work and saving, we are finally going to enjoy the fruits of our labor. Between getting married and moving, we'll be doing a lot of traveling...
Both of us have taken on as much work as we possibly could. It's exhausting. We work 10 hours a day in the studio, usually 12, leaving time only to go grocery shopping or take the dog for a wee. We're both teaching, doing freelance work, committing to gallery shows - everything to earn as much as possible.
We've had to bail on a bunch of fun stuff like gallery openings, dinner with friends and parties, which hurts.
But it's all going to be worth it really soon!
May - October 2010 : New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Portland OR, Kyoto/Nagoya/Shizuoka/Tokyo Japan
In the mean time, we are just enjoying the work we're doing; looking at each other from across the apartment knowing what's to come.
