another Zombie bookmark

Tooling around, trying to get back in to the game and carve out another groove since I seem to have fallen out of my last one. Sick sucks ... life goes on.
This is another zombie book mark type image, approx. 2"x8" mixed media.
You can see my other zombie book mark images here:

zombie self portrait

This is a zombified self portrait ... and a test
to see if the blog post will put a big image in the google+ post.
And while we're at it ... who wants a zombie portrait?

past the FU ... or ... FUCK YOU to the past


Original is available in my shop: http://zombies.storenvy.com

Sometimes when I have to much time to think or things are going a little more bleak than usual I reflect on the past and the choices that I have made and the misadventures I had. Sometimes I reflect on how I was raised or what and how I was taught. Other times it might be how I was treated, or treated myself, or even just the mistakes I made.
There's a lot of things I would like to change about where I came from and how I developed, and there are a lot of mistakes I wish were never made. But that's life and you can't change the past. You can only learn from it and keep moving forward.
So instead of dwelling on things I can't change, I'm trying hard to focus on just changing myself.

This image is a big FUCK YOU to my past ... specifically the bad parts.

Time to move on ... and part of the moving on is bringing back the daily zombie, but instead of just daily drawings and stuff I'm going to start to talk about what its like trying to be a work from home artist and support your family doing that. It's a tough gig and I'm probably doing everything wrong.

With this blog I am going to try to talk about the mistakes I've made so you can hopefully avoid them, the things I've learned about building an audience, how and where to sell your work online, and other stuff. As I've said, I'm probably doing a lot of things wrong so while I am making these posts I'll be able to hopefully push myself in to really looking at what I'm doing and maybe learn a few new things too.

At least that's the plan.

First words of advice for anyone that wants to quit their day job and do art full time ... before you do, get a years worth of savings because you're going to need it.

Tomorrow I'll talk about what I wish I knew before starting on this path.
Cheers!
