What did you do today?

Productivity is by no means my middle name and like most people, I have my productive days and my…not-so-productive days. I am in a rare form today, being much more productive than usual. Productive, productive, productive! I got up super early (5am), did yoga for about a half hour, cut out the pieces to a shirt I planned to sew, made “eggy-in-a basket” with bacon for breakfast, repaired a hole…

Out of Retirement!

With the launch of my improved art and design portfolio website coming up in a few months, I’ve been taking photos of various pieces of art I want to display. However, not all of it is on paper or canvas; I also do graphic design and t-shirt logos, but those are boring if I just post the graphic. I feel the visual appeal of a graphic design is much more…

First Impressions Sell!

On a recent trip back home to New York I visited with my good friends at Crooked Brook. When I worked for them in their studio I had a menagerie of jobs [almost too many to list], but for the purpose of this post, I’ll tell you I did modeling for them. …For those of you who don’t know, Crooked Brook is a design label used by the Broad Street…

Art Projects Potpourri!

It seems like ages since I last blogged! Well, maybe not ages, but it has been about 4 months. Much too long! I’ll just have to summarize all the latest Kerrminator projects to catch you up! Gifts Galore! As much as I’d like to make all my gifts for everyone, I just don’t have the time. However, I do try to make something for at least a couple people for…

Freelance Artist, Designer and Illustrator on Thumbtack.com

As I stated in my last post, I’m focusing my creativity on Search Engine Optimization and putting my art on the back burner. I took another step today to hopefully siphon more traffic to my site. I received an email about a website called Thumbtack.com and it interested me enough to join. The site seems very useful and I think it will benefit me by broadening my network and sending…

The Meat of My Creativity

I haven’t had much art to post recently and I haven’t updated my work in progress in weeks simply because I haven’t made any progress yet. I’ve been more focused on establishing my online presence…or at least planning it. I’m working on revamping my website (now that I know what the hell I’m doing) to be more fine tuned, organized and optimized for search engines. I’m still months away from…

Art for Epica – SOLD

Several months ago I contacted a poster on Craigslist that was looking for pieces of art for the group, Epica. The band was looking for artists from the cities along their tour, to create a piece of art inspired by Epica’s music. I have been thinking about ways to get my art out there, and this was a good opportunity to do so. I hadn’t heard of the group before…

He’s Crafty, and He’s Just My Type

One of the things I love about my boyfriend, Ryan, is his crafting skills. No, I don’t mean scrap-booking. His sort of crafting, or ‘projecting’ as he likes to call it, is in the form of creating garb. You might think it’s slightly feminine for a man to make his own clothes, but his response to that is, “sewing is a useful skill and sewing machines are power tools.” hehe…

Connected

I’m on my third submission on Talenthouse.com, with my first two submissions being unsuccessful. I certainly hope I don’t suck that bad so, I think I’ll tell myself the reason for my lack of success with these ‘creative invites’ is that I have an insufficient quantity of friends that can vote for me. At any rate, I’m going to keep submitting to these things while I have the time even…
