Those who follow me elsewhere have probably already seen this. -> [Link]
It's my Agenda for the next three months. The part I want to point out is the "Vault Rules". I guess this is the closest I still get to a New Year's Resolution? I don't know. I think of it more like a mantra. I changed it from what it was previously Keep Moving Forward and Make a Profit to Keep Moving Forward and Relax a Bit.
See, a lot of the moves I've been making for the past two years have been with the goal of getting paid more through my artwork instead of my usual means (websites and tech repair). Not for nothing, one can't live on art alone. Pencils taste terrible and untreated paper makes for Terrible housing material. Thing of it is that phrase "Make a Profit" kinda' hung over me and had the opposite effect than I had hoped it would have. It didn't push me to make better financial choices. It just kinda' made me stare at my bank account going "Where has all the money gone?" while bemoaning failed plans. -.-
Instead, I'm going to remind myself to relax a bit and not stress over things I can't quite control. As much as I need money to function, I need to have a clear head to make it or all my plans will bomb before they get off the ground.
On a happier note: Check out my HG Gundam AGE-1 sporting parts of its Glansa equipment! It's not done up too crazy with a full paint job and all but it's pretty snazzy. -> [LinkTastic!]
Well, back to the Art Mines for me. I'm going to hold off a bit before the next strip. Got something planned that I'm not quite certain I can pull off in the usual time frame. Still going to try for next Sunday but yeah... no promises.
'Till next time! = )
