A big year of changes!
What a year! I'm sure we've all seen some big ups and downs, this past year. I'm certainly in the same boat as you. I saw the birth of my son, the completion of one of the biggest projects I've ever been involved in, the shutdown of daycares through the pandemic, while my wife and I still continued to work 8+ hours a day with a three year old at home 24/7 and no where to take her. I also saw social media really start to take off for me, a big shift in my audience moving from international to local, a successful fundraiser that I decided to do raising over $1200 for the YYC foodbank, some virtual failures, selling my work for the first time on a consignment basis in physical shops, and my first Art Spot Under 100 show, which essentially replaces my usual Market Collective outing for this time of the year. I'm going to try to do a series of reviews over the next few weeks that will focus on the professional advances I've had in the past year, starting with the really big one, my project with the Royal Tyrell Museum in Drumheller, AB .
Thanks for staying tuned! I hope you enjoy the blog entries to come!
