About a year ago, I decided to give a try to learning graphic design, something I had experimented with now and then over the past several years. I took a couple classes at the community college last Spring and worked through some books this summer. At this point, I'm realizing I just don't like it. It's tedious and stressful. I'm thinking I'll give it a break and focus my energy back on drawing and painting (including the digital variety even though it's not as satisfying it requires much less energy).
Drawing and painting has been my dream since adolesence, but I had to go through a lot of roadblocks first.

Today, I'm very proud to say I've achieved my dream of creating work that makes me feel good and good about myself and maybe even makes others feel good, too, sometimes.

I think that's a really big deal. I got into graphic design mostly because of stress about getting a job, but fortunately, I don't need a job. I have enough money and I'm plenty busy and occupied with art projects and the rest of my life. I want to say enough is enough with all the stress and pressure. Good riddance!!!
