The beginning of a new month.

So it's been a busy week for me. Last weekend I drove to Ohio to photograph a wedding and have been busy since then with editting and such of the photographs since it was shot digitally. I'm also struggling to catch up with various freelance projects, which hasn't been easy since I haven't been home the last several weekends and weeknights just aren't as productive.

But June is a new month, and I've been working very hard and don't intend to slack off, so I should be caught up by the middle of the month. It will mean working around two hours a night for the next couple of weeks, which is a lot on top of my boring, stressful 9-5 job. But at the same time, it's a good thing - because this is forcing me to put my money where my mouth is in terms of establishing an active career as a freelance artist of various genres and mediums.

Hopefully I won't have to stay at my job more than a few years before I have enough business going that I can quit my job. Let's keep our fingers crossed on that one. For now, I'm happy with the start that I'm making, and very grateful to Vincent Baker for helping me get started. (Vincent! If you're reading this, thanks for posting that drawing! I'm eternally grateful!)

Anyway! Creative stuff! If you want to see lots, and lots of wedding photos that I shot last weekend, head over to http://www.browserbeware.com/Noel_and_Kristy/ - it'll redirect to a Flickr account with the photos. (Only around 2000 or so!)

My other creative pursuit right now is, of course, Sons of Liberty. I'm redoing one of last month's since I was totally unhappy with it. I banged out most of it tonight and should be able to finish it tomorrow.

So far so good. I just have to keep up the pace!
