This is the first month in a while that I have had some time to pursue my own work again and work on my tarot deck. Since I do not have many outside imposed deadlines and set work times I'm trying really hard to create a freelance schedule. My day job is involving more freelance work, and I have cut back my hours at Starbucks. I have to make an effort to plan time for getting out of the house, exercising and setting a time to stop working and do things to inspire me.
I'm slowly working out how to
plan out a day that works for me. In the past I have had a tendency to
fill every waking moment I am not at my day job with art stuff, but that
was ok because my day job got me out of the house, socializing and
blog has helped me out a lot in the preliminary steps of planning my
freelance schedule. Meg Hunt's illustration blog has also been a great resource especially her section on Drawing Drills and the Icon 8 conference. Do any of you have suggestions on how to schedule and organize in a freelance world?
an August the 18th resolution to plan more time for; sketching,
exploring, experimenting, socializing, inspiration and collaborating.

The beginning of August I finished up a few long term projects. One of my scheduled creations was a short comic for the Dark Lady anthology. This comic collection is due to be published sometime around Halloween by Hellcat Press. My submission was a short horror story revolving around the spring thaw, rot, collections of curiosities and teeth. In my searches I came across some amazing old dental supplies, beautifully gruesome charts and diagrams.
Then I found these tooth necklaces (above) from BoneLust on Etsy.
I do have a bit of a fascination with teeth, I spend a lot of time at the dentist. I think I like sweets too much, wich leads to cavities and lots of dentist visits.
Enjoy the photos and keep an eye out for The Dark lady anthology.
