About This Blog
When I started to research the how-to's of writing and publishing, I became aware of blogging; it occurred to me that this might be a way to motivate myself to finish some projects. I visited many artists’ blogs and realized two things: They made me feel insecure about my work (Oh my gosh—look at all those credentials that I lack), and they rarely showed the progression of their work, which is something I’ve always enjoyed about instructional books.
Posting my work serves a two-fold purpose for me. First, if I post the beginning of a project, (even if no one is really watching, but especially if I think a few people might notice) I know I am more likely to see it to completion. Second, it makes me more comfortable with putting my work out there. As a bonus, I'm building my portfolio for that day when I get brave enough to walk into some gallery and say, “I'd like to show you my work.” Of course, Todd will be standing behind me—he can be very persuasive.
