Good bye SeaWorld.....

It has been a while since I've posted anything. So I'm here to bring everyone up to speed on my life. And I'm trying to get in to the habit of posting more often.

A lot of things have changed in my life the past few months. For starters, I don't work for Kaman's Art Shoppes (SeaWorld, Busch Gardens)anymore. I've been doing a lot of gigs, fairs, festivals, and art shows. I just work where ever I can to be an artist.
There's ups and downs to this life style of working fairs and festivals. The "ups" are: I get to work with old friends. I get paid more. I'm self employed. I travel all over the U.S.
There's downs as well: I'm doing this part time so I can be home to paint. So there's big gaps between pay days. I'm gone for long periods of time. And when your gone, a lot of things change, people change, your relationships change or even end. Because life keeps moving while your gone. If your not plugged into it, they'll forget about you and move on. They'll get fed somewhere else.
So I'm going to be working my butt off to get more work in Florida. I'm going to make "Mess Your Face.com bigger and better then any other caricature booking site. It's going to look great and be easy to use. I'm hoping to have it finished by the end of August 2009. I'm also going to do little Festivals here to hand out business cards. If your a caricature artist that wants work and would like to help promote Mess Your Face.com just let me know. I'll make you business cards. Put your name on the back of them and you can hand them out like crazy!!!

Man, sounds like fun. As far as friends go, the real ones stay connected. Sucks I wont see you around Sea World anymore, I haven't worked there in months.
