Here’s an announcement: my portrait commissions are closed till 2022. While I’ll continue to accept bookings via email, I won’t be drawing portraits at all till the reopening next summer. If you’d like to know when that day arrives, please subscribe to my newsletter or follow my Instagram, Twitter or Tumblr.
So I thought I could do my Halloween and Christmas sale… but after some more thinking I decided to go on hiatus. This is not surprising if you’ve heard me talk about wanting to do a residency year, to dedicate 2021 to developing my craft, doing non-art activities and retiring from workaholicism. Well, I can’t do that when I am focusing on freelance, as much as I enjoy drawing for clients.
This Summer has been and is going to be quite packed for me… as I shed each project, the urge to reprioritise grows stronger.
I am putting all of this in public as a form of accountability to myself… to make the Hiatus capital O Official. Hopefully this works. @_@
