Here is my list of seven "unusual" things about me (that stay within the boundries of good taste):
1) From what I remember...my creative career began at Easter when I was 4 or 5. I recall being "schooled" by my older cousins, who's crayon-on-construction-paper egg design skills were CLEARLY superior to mine. Since then, I have grown numb to being routinely schooled :>)
2) My first commissioned work was for someone who is probably an agent (or a convict) now. Roy Selby sold my cartoon drawings in third grade for nickels and dimes- we split the profits. It turns out his mom was buying them. Our business relationship ended when Roy took me hostage in the coat closet- arm around my neck, a very sharp pencil poking through my sweater into my chest- threatening to take me out if anyone came near. Good times (Strangely like working in an Ad Agency).
3) I believe that there is a direct correlation between the teams I take interest in and "losing".
4) I have developed an anxiety about speaking to large audiences (But I don't have a problem acting like a clown in front of them!)
5) I did not take art classes throughout high school- had enrolled in the University of Toledo's law school (to become a paralegal assistant) ...yikes! All of this was before I decided to follow my heart/gut and choose art over a steady income. Maybe the second best decision I ever made :>)
6) I have a clinically untested theory about the human social paradigm, loosely rooted in the idea that there is "one in every group", wanna here it???
7) I fear my children will be exactly like me :>)
And my 7 favorite artists blogging today are (The usual suspects & in no particular order):
1) Carol Marine
2) Karin Jurick
4) William Wray
