Dream chocolate and a lot of other written stuff

Chocolate I drew a few days ago during brekky.  I have been very busy these last couple of weeks.  I've been taking on a lot as my current full-time contract will be ending in just a couple of months and I've been doing double...triple..jobs... essentially anything I can get.  On top of that, I've been working on a side project that I cannot reveal here until it has been submitted, I am studying Japanese every night before bed and going to a private tutor once a week.  I will soon be taking the class.  Goodness, I don't feel ready for it at all.  I've also been submitting my work to places that might bring in revenue...but we shall see.  Trying to be an artist and producing stuff and taking the time to frame or get it framed and bringing it to different places, is a full-time job in itself and here I am trying to do both simultaneously. 

I prefer to kill as many birds as I can with one stone.  It's the only way for me to get things done.  That and not sleeping.  I haven't been sleeping much to try and fit everything in.  I truly enjoy being busy but I think I am classified as crazy busy.  Every time I get something done...there's another project that suffers.  For instance, the last week and a half I had 2 freelance jobs, working hard on my full-time contract and this side project....not to mention urban sketching for a zine ( a good example of killing two birds with one stone)...what is suffering?  Well, I haven't been able to get as far with my character designs on this film am working on with a friend, I still have two commissions to do, I haven't been doing daily sketches as my time for doing that has been taken over by the side project and studying Japanese, I want to start a new series of pieces but I can't, I still have shirts to design, places to submit to, folios, and showreels to update, need to create a new and fancy website, go everywhere in Melbourne Urban Sketching!! It's crazy!  I might actually be busy all the way till am old...(which is preferred, rather than doing nothing and waiting for death) but for as long as I can keep working as an artist/animator/illustrator, I don't think I will stop.  The day I can't work anymore, will probably be the same day that it's "game over".
