Where did September go?

I can't believe it's already the first week of October! I noticed one of the trees on my morning walk had started to turn red about mid-Sept, but the rest are catching up quickly. I usually get a little melancholy with the shorter days and cooler air but this fall is a little more so since I still don't have a job lined up. I am trying to stay productive, getting my resume and portfolio put together and working on getting my freelance business forms together. I didn't realize all the things needed to start a small business but at least it's just me and I don't have employees to worry about:) I still need a marketing mail piece that I can start sending out to prospective clients.

It's been over three months since I've not been working. I've finally stopped being so anxious about it and started getting a routine together so I can work on artwork. Been preparing for Artfest. The theme this year is sea monsters/octopuses. Bee Shay is hosting another ATC fatbook so I'm busy with my cards for that and trying to decide what to do as artwork to sell in the attendee show. Here's my latest creations from some of the other ATC swaps I've played in on SwapBot and ATC World on Yahoo:

Yup, I think it's all about establishing a routine, but you you have to figure out what works best for you. In my opinion, it's an ongoing experiment.

I used to be really active in the ATC world. I haven't made any for a few years... sort of got busy with other things. I used to host monthly ATC trading sessions and it was great fun. For the last two years I've been going to a local Comix Jam. A group of us sit around and draw wacky and surreal comic book pages that get assembled into little comic book zines. Anyway, just wanted to say your ATCs look great. If I was still doing mail trades I'd send some off to you. Maybe one of these days I'll make some more. Oh, and U.B. says hi and thanks for the comment.
