Hey, thanks, Jason! lol..yeh, he's such a purty 'lil cuuuutttte guy, ain't he? ;)

I'm nearing the end of these dudes...three more to go! As I've mentioned before I've done a bunch more than I've posted; maybe down the line I'll put some of those 'rejected' designs up.

I've got some ideas for my next project...I kinda like the idea of the 'series' with a # attached to it - gives me an incentive to work towards a conclusion.

Thanks for stoppin' by!

Yes, setting limits is a good idea; I need to do the same thing with my work by setting an arbitrary date to finish my paintings by. Otherwise I take way too long.
It's amazing what you can accomplish when you force yourself. It's good that you did a series for yourself outside of your job- I would think it's more rewarding.

I know what you're talking about Dan...with a painting, or any piece of art, I suppose, you can continue to keep going back in and working on areas, fixing, tweaking...they're never really 'done'... you just need to say at some point that it is! Usually a deadline for a paying gig will dicate that, but for personal work it's tougher.

It is also true that you can really surprise yourself about the amount of work you can get done - it's just a matter of putting your mind to it and - doing it!

Definitely rewarding to do stuff outside of work, though I do like some of the stuff I do at the job sometimes, too.
