"Try not to become a man of success. Rather become a man of value." Albert Einstein

'Someone' suggested I actually get down to business and decide who I want as a client (you know, as opposed to just letting people pick me and feeling like I have to conform to what they want, instead of being true to myself). So I brainstormed the other day and came up with this list. I found a fabulous illustration on istockphoto (Dream Station 'Beauty') and after I printed it out, I did the old graphite on the back of the printout, and then sketching the important bits as a transfer onto the canvas (thank you for the idea, Cloth Paper Scissors!) I hope Dream Station doesn't mind me playing around with their image (as I'm not selling it or anything, just playing).
Here's the list...

  1. Hello Kennedy. I did mention I was PMSing in my post...I am sorry I took your comments out of context. Thanks for stopping by to clear that up. :)

    I love your Inspiration board, it's very unique! I wish I had more time to delve into the core of my creativity. I used to dabble in all sorts of things, painting, poetry, drawing. Then I had kids and that stopped, lol!

  2. Tamara - no worries. Thanks for coming over here and commenting. You've got a great blog going on (obviously, since you've been a Blog of Note!). ;)
