Illustration Job: Egyptian Chararacter Design

Hi!  Something I worked on late last year.  It was for the History Book job.  Been putting up old jobs (that am allowed to post) and delaying posting on the blog as I do have heaps to show but can;t show anything until after the exhibition that's coming up on Feb 27, this Thursday!  Very excited and nervous.  I have never done a solo exhibition and this is the first joint exhibition am doing which is really close to being a solo since there's only one other artist to look at.  Kinda one of those moments where you have no place to hide, you know? 

I haven't freelanced in over a month, it's a great feeling to get more rest but it makes me nervous too.  Extra money is always good after all. Doing exhibitions is an expensive hobby.  However, I think it is beneficial as it gets my work out there and I would like to focus on more exhibitions and selling my after in about 5-10 years time.  Don't think I can ever give up animating but it would be awesome to make a living selling the works I feel like drawing and designing.....we shall see. 

The economy in Victoria is looking a little dire come the future as a lot of manufacturing jobs are being moved overseas..really hoping that we don't end up in a depression.  Trying to sell art at that time will be extremely difficult as people will only want to pay for necessities.
