First of all, Happy New Year to everyone! Lots of hugs and best wishes
Second, this past holidays with the family didn't allow me to move much forward on the illustration front, and this has made me take another course of action for this year. The plan remains the same but I'll extend my dedication to these private commissions to february as well, so I won't be taking any more work with deadlines within January and February. This made me see real clear that even when illustration is not a full time job that I do in my spare time, I really need to separate it from the family time and even from any "household" time. If I wish to keep this going, I need it to formalize it and give it its proper, regular and disciplined time. As I mentioned before, The commissioners who have been kind and patient enough with me and my epic delays will be compensated.
My first biggets resolution for this year is be to CLEAR ALL THE DELAYED artwork before taking anything else, so, I better push it faster or else i'm going to be very tight on money very soon, not to mention the unreasonable amount of time I've taken to finish this work... I still remember how 3 years ago I couldn't believe that an illustrator would give a two-week time frame for commissions.... The irony!
So, in a nutshell:
-Jan and Feb will be all about clearing out ALL the private commissions.
-I'll keep a nearly daily journal update on Private comissions (except weekends!)
-I won't be taking any more jobs with a deadline before Feb 28th or when all commissions are cleared
-Previous commissioners will get a preferential deal if they ever want to commission more work.
Thanks for you support and patience and looking forward to fulfill all work ASAP!Commission WIPs
