I attended my daughter’s Career Day this morning at her school, representing the career of “artist.” I had a blast answering all of the questions the students had and sharing my inspirations and drawings. I created 80 little mini zines/comics on why I choose to be an artist(pictured above) to hand out, and wished that I had been able to create 5 times that many to give to everyone. I then ended up drawing and handing out 50 pieces of art, which was all of the sheets of paper in the art pad. We then turned to the laptop and I drew a simple flip book style animation using Flash and my Wacom Tablet. I will share the animation later today or tomorrow with everyone. I would like to say a big thank you to the staff and students for having me. I would also like to tell the students, that now matter wether your passion is art, sports, writing, the military, science, or a million other things, follow your passion and pursue a career that makes you happy. Thanks again everyone.
ps. If anyone that I drew a picture for at career day wants to send me a picture of you with your drawing, I would love to post it here on my blog. Email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
