I was asked by Society6 to draw a summer camp story for a blog feature, and this is what I came up with. Pretty sure that tent could represent a lot of things in life.
Speaking of summer camp, our family went camping for a week in mid August, and the experience keeps showing up in my work. I've still got trees and tents and fishing on my mind.
I was asked by Society6 to share some business tips for artists over on their blog (honoured to do so, btw!). So I tried to get to the core of what every artist needs to be successful.
BTW, looking for more help with your art practice? I have two online classes: one's about selling your art with Society6 and other print-on-demand sites, and another about tapping into your creative super powers. Check 'em out.

Creative block can be super tough. Staring at a blank screen or a blank canvas, not sure what to write or paint... It happens to me all the time. But I've managed to develop a bag of tricks over the years that helps me break through creative block. A big part of it is I carry around a notebook with me wherever I go. I've been doing this for over 10 years.
I'm going to be sharing all of my methods for breaking through creative block, as well as expanding your creative potential in a LIVE CLASS called CREATIVE SUPER POWERS tomorrow (Aug. 10) at 10am Pacific . It's just $25, and since it's live you can ask me questions during the event :)

I truly believe that everyone has the ability to be immensely creative.
(That includes you!) Everyone has access to an unlimited supply of brilliance. The world around us is fertile with an abundance of great ideas, waiting to be brought to life by you. You just need to open your eyes, know where and how to look, and let your creative self play.
But sometimes we get stuck! Creative block comes along and puts on the brakes.
When you’re in a creative rut, the most important thing to do is to get a fresh perspective.
Going for a walk or doing the dishes often helps quiet my mind and relax and wander and eventually find the good ideas I’m looking for.
When that doesn’t work, I’ve got a list of strategies that I run through to get unstuck.
Tap in to your Creative Super Powers
I’ve got a whole bunch of methods that I’d love to share with you in my upcoming LIVE CLASS called Creative Super Powers. It’s for people who want to expand their creative potential and dream up big things.
The class will be live, this Thursday August 10, at 10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern. Only $25.
(Can't make it? You can watch the replay.)
If you'd like to learn even MORE about selling your work on print-on-demand sites like Society6 or RedBubble, I put together an online class! I share everything I know about how to get the most out of selling your work through print-on-demand, from setting up your shop and your products so they really shine, to the things I've done to spark sales and built a nice side income.
(This class was originally presented live, but you can now watch the full video as often as you want for $25.)
