I've had that dream a 1000 times

Follow your dreams!

If you can't stop dreaming about it, don't stop working for it. Ever. 

We dream about many things- money, success, true love and big happiness. Those are great. I also dream of purpose. This purpose includes endless ideas, things to create and work that serves a greater cause than self-interest or to be in a portfolio. 

Narrative inspired by the song A 1000 times by Hamilton Leithauser + Rostom

He loves the night life!

"What a nice night for an evening." - Steven Wright

Today is the first day of Autumn and it's still not sweater weather yet. I'm hoping this warm stretch will stay like this all the way to Halloween. 'Til then, I'm going to enjoy the night life with apple cider while wearing sandals for a little while longer.

Snail Mail

So here in Canada we recently had a mail strike scare. The latest news: Canada Post has backtracked on its threat to lock out its workers and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers says it will not issue a strike notice. That's a relief!   

I love snail mail! Freelancers like myself rely on the mail system quite a lot especially when it comes to pay cheques and royalty cheques not to mention supplies that I cannot find here in New Brunswick. Speaking of which, it's probably time to make a much needed art supply order.

Hot Wheels!

After a very busy stretch, it's nice to settle back down to some work. The month of May is like Christmas here. Between the birthdays and Mother's Day, it is just packed. And expensive! Holy smokes. I'll be happy to not have to step into stores or the mall for awhile. And that's okay, because I have enough to keep me busy. 

So this roller derby girl was done just in time to kick off the nice weather. I sold my roller skates a while back and now I'm regretting it. Days like today I'd love to be on them but I'll settle with getting a bike instead. 

It's time to say goodbye to May and say hello to June! It's going to be busy but the good kind of busy. ~Holly

Hidden Dragon

Being a hidden dragon, a diamond in the rough, or a hidden gem while flying under the radar means you are on the verge of greatness. Honing your skills and paying attention to the important work often comes with being unappreciated, for now. Do the work, build your skill and you will become a commodity, a hard to find absent and rare talent. Hidden dragons are a lucky find indeed.

My weekend is all booked!

So I had this crazy idea to submit this this as a bookmark. Either way, I like it and I plan on using it as a promo piece. 

That moment when you really like your work!

I often tell my kids this: make sure your worst enemy is not living between your own two ears. As I say that, I’m also thinking we should all kick self-doubt in the ass and never look back. read more here: Illustration Notes
